Controversial Economic Freedom Fighters MP MP Marshall Dlamini charged for slapping a white security guard has cried out for justice, maintaining that he was dealing with a racist clown.
Dlamini explained that he was dealing with a “racist clown” when he threw a slap just outside of Parliament following the state of the nation address last week.
The slap, which hit warrant officer Johan Carstens, was caught on camera and the video footage quickly went viral on social media.
Dlamini was speaking at the Durban University of Technology on Tuesday during the memorial of slain student Mlungisi Madonsela.
The student was shot last week during clashes between students and private security at the university’s Steve Biko campus. He later died in hospital. It is alleged that he was shot by a security guard.
Speaking of the parliamentary incident, Dlamini said: “Some racist clown got overzealous in parliament and we sorted him out. We will never apologise to or succumb to racists.”
He continued: “Let me tell you now, there is no one who is going to dictate to us how we should conduct our revolution, because those that we trusted betrayed us. Those that we trusted lied to us. Those that we trusted sold us out. So we are not going to be told by anyone.”
