Exclusive News

According to RT News, South Africa and other African countries must withdraw from the International Criminal Court (ICC), Julius Malema, the leader of South African opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has urged.

Malema vowed his party would lead this effort and accused the ICC of turning a “blind eye” to numerous serious crimes. “The ICC did not do anything about former US president George Bush’s wars in Iran and turned a blind eye when Barack Obama and NATO illegally invaded Libya,” he said.

Andile Mngxitama, a former South African National Assembly Member, also backed the call, telling RT that the Hague-based court has “proven to have no credibility” and has rather become a tool of the West against certain countries.
