Watch: Julius Malema’s son denied to open bank accounts

President of the Economic Freedom Fighters, Julius Malema has accused various banks in South Africa of discriminating against him and his son, after they declined them accounts.

The EFF leader made the allegation in a press conference on Wednesday, 2 August.

The controversial politician’s comments come just days after he courted controversy for singing the controversial struggle song.

In his address, Malema claimed that banks like FNB and Absa had closed his accounts, seemingly over his last name.

But while he was not surprised at the action taken against him, he was concerned for his son.

He said: “My son’s bank [account] is being declined. He is 17 years old, he hasn’t done anything to anyone, but he can’t get a bank account.

“We are being bullied by banks in South Africa.

“We need to mobilize South Africans against these banks and physical action. Their day will come”.

Malema is referring to his firstborn child Ratanang from a previous relationship.

The EFF CIC is now married to his wife Mantwa, with whom he shares two sons; Munzhedzi and Kopano.
