For Malema, the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) has bitten more than they can chew; thus, the league must face the music of the law.
Malema was reacting to ANCYL’s secretary-general Njabulo Nzuza allegations that the EFF’s national chairperson Dalu Mpofu is the sponsor and funder of the new anti-Zuma movement Occupy Luthuli House.
Njabulo Nzuza launched this scathing attack on Mpofu on Monday in an interview on talk radio station Power FM. He also claimed the EFF national leader has been funding the protest with the R5 million he allegedly received from the US.
Njabulo Nzuza Must Be Punished
Inflamed by the accusation, Malema called on Mpofu to sue the ‘bastard’ for such a baseless challenge and for drawing the EFF to the centre of the ANC’s disaster.
Last Friday, there was a fracas between the ANCYL and the new anti-Zuma movement Occupy Luthuli House; after the latter staged a media briefing at the Court Clasique Hotel in Tshwane. The movement also announced it intended to demonstrate at the Luthuli House on Monday (today).
Among the ANCYL Tshwane leaders who ensured that the incipient group gets frustrated during the briefing were regional Secretary Ratshi Masahamba, deputy chairperson Ezra Letsoalo and councilor and youth league regional chairperson Lesego Makhubela.
Top on the movement’s demand are:
- Immediate resignation of the President
- Immediate resignation of the whole ANC NEC
- Forming a task team comprising stalwarts to take the ANC to a consultative conference for renewal
- Immediate implementation of free and quality education and disbandment of the Fees Commission.
Meanwhile, the proposed protest scheduled to hold today was cancelled. This was after the organizers recorded a poor turnout at the march.
EFF’s Malema however encouraged them to stay committed to the cause and not be depressed by the number of their supporters.
“You only need commitment and not numbers to demonstrate your commitment to a cause. Never allow fear or intimidation to determine your action,” he said.
BuzzSouthAfrica has learnt that Luthuli House is currently under the watch of heavy policemen; including members of Umkhonto weSizwe.
