Controversial Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has called on Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema to stay out of Zimbabwe’s politics adding that the country has adequate capacity to handle its own issues.
Malema is said to have offered to mediate a deal with the Zanu PF government that will result on some alleged members of G40 returning to the country from exile.
However, Mliswa said there was nothing to mediate as the G40 members are mere criminals who are running away from the law.
“I was a bit worried when I read that my colleague Cde. Julius Malema had mentioned that he wanted to mediate in the G40. Let me say this to Honourable Malema, that there is a law in this country.
“As much as he fights against corruption in South Africa, we equally fight against corruption. The best that he can do to mediate is talk to his fellow friends to come and face the laws of this country.
“They committed a crime and as such, there is no political matter which is stopping them from being here other than that they committed crimes which are well known and they must face the courts of this country because we are a law-abiding country,” he said.
Mliswa said Malema is misinformed and advised him to stick to his principles of fighting corruption in South Africa as his services are not needed in Zimbabwe.
“He is misinformed by thinking that there is any political motive on that. It is purely a law issue which can only be addressed by the courts, so the mediator is already, there being the courts.
“We do not need him to mediate in matters which are before the courts in this country. May he stick to his principles of being an Honourable Member of Parliament who fights corruption in his country and allow us to fight corruption in this country.
“If he has decided to be an external affairs officer for the G40 then he must come out in the clean,” he said.
