The Bishop of Johannesburg, Dr Steve Moreo, has criticised controversial South African politician Julius Malema after he appeared to call for the murder of white people. Malema, who leads the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters party, said on Monday (7 November) “We are not calling for the slaughtering of white people – at least for now” during an emotionally charged speech to his supporters.
