South African opposition leader Julius Malema on Sunday announced his run for president in the 2019 election, vowing to run on a platform that doesn't “care about white feelings.” Malema, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, said he would first seek to unseat Athol Trollip, the mayor of Port Elizabeth whose Democratic Alliance party he says promotes the interests of whites over blacks. “All white people who are voting DA, who are angry with what we are going to do in PE... all of you can go to hell, we don't care about you. We don't care about white feelings,” he told a crowd in Johannesburg, according to AFP. “We don't hate white people, we just love black people,” he was quoted as saying, later adding that he and his supporters are “cutting the throat of whiteness.” He called on EFF supporters to register to vote to help fulfill his political plans, telling the crowd “you are a criminal” for not doing so.
