In a media brief held in Braamfontein Monday morning, Malema who was speaking on Gambia's political crisis between former President Yahya Jammeh and incumbent President Adama Barrow, also urged Mugabe to step down as president.
"Zimbabwe situation is bad, president Mugabe can't even control a spade, they were trying to plant a tree and he can't control that thing. That's how old he is. He's no longer capable of discharging his responsibilities," Malema said.
"His overstay is not doing justice on the African revolution project. He is destroying his own legacy.Malema has praised Mugabe in the past and been a firm supporter but has begun distancing himself from the dictator recently, denouncing Mugabe's 36 year rule.
We celebrate Mugabe. We celebrate what he has done and we will continue his legacy, but grandpa it's enough now. You must let go and allow other people to continue that legacy." he added.
