Malema tells South Africa to quit Commonwealth

BBC – South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters party leader Julius Malema has called on South Africa to pull out of the Commonwealth.

He said the 53-member body is “presided over by the coloniser” and to respect the Commonwealth “perpetuates white supremacy”.

British Queen Elizabeth II is the head of the body founded in 1931. Her son, Prince Charles, has been lined up as her successor.

Mr Malema also said that South African judges should stop wearing judicial wigs, which he sees as a colonial relic.

His comments came despite the fact that after the end of apartheid, South Africa scrapped the requirement that judges wear wigs.
