"I have never seen anyone empowered by Patrice Motsepe‚" said Malema"I had a friend who worked for him‚ but he never got anything from Motsepe‚" Malema said."He has started a company like Old Mutual‚ but has brought in white males (to run it)." Malema urged people who attended the gala dinner not to surrender to white supremacy."Let's have our country back in our hands. It starts with you the most educated. We need black excellence and we are not ashamed of that‚" the EFF leader said.He said the EFF had an open door policy and that everyone was welcome to go to the party’s offices in Braamfontein without making an appointment.
