EFF statement on the flaunting of the stolen Star of African at the Coronation of the King of England
6 May 2023
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) reiterates its demand for the return of the stolen Star of Africa from the internationalist mafia, the British monarchy. The largest diamond, known as the Star of Africa is set in the British monarch's sceptre and Imperial State Crown. Today, 116-year later, the King of England, Charles III continues in the pompous steps of his predecessors flaunting the stolen Star of Africa at his coronation.
Apartheid criminal, Louis Botha handed over the Star of Africa to the ruthless British colonisers in 1907. Botha was a well-known apartheid criminal who had no legitimacy to hand over the Star of Africa. The British monarchy had no dignified grounds to accept it, yet alone still parade it as British glory 116-years later.
The British monarchy continue to live in the grandeur of African wealth - all this, while African children die of starvation. Charles III is firm on track of his predecessors as he parades the fruits of their brutal legacy of dehumanization of millions of people across the world.
The attendance of the ANC Government at the coronation legitimatises the brutality of the British monarchy against the very people it is elected to serve. Instead of vigorously pursuing justice, the return of stolen jewels and repatriations, it is scrambling for a bus ride and a back row seat at the coronation of the unrepentant Charles III.
