The ruling party’s Youth League, ANCYL has had enough of Julius Malema and his EFF. They can no longer tolerate his excesses and therefore, will approach South Africa’s commender-in-chief of armed forces, Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma to unleash soldiers on the EFF.
ANCYL said it is obvious EFF’s agenda is to destabilize South Africa. The party has consistently disrespected a democratically elected government. And the recent threat by it’s leader to oust the ANC government with guns cannot be ignored, ANCYL charged.
The Youth League President, Collen Maine told reporters in Johannesburg after the league’s three-day national executive committee meeting that “the national executive committee of the ANCYL has decided…to discuss with the state president as commander-in-chief of the country to unleash armed forces on the EFF because we can’t allow that behavior.
We are a constitutional democracy…and we do not have arms as the youth league, we are not financed by Johan Rupert and everyone else. We will rely on the state and its machinery to deal with that,” Maine remarked.
Maine was questioned if asking Zuma to unleash soldiers on the EFF isn’t a call for civil war. He responded that the ANCYL will never desire war for South Africa.
Albeit, he added that “whoever wants to fight Zuma must do so through the ANCYL. We have never called for a war. We will however, fight any attempts that seek to brew civil war in this country,” the Youth League President warned.
Already, ANC has opened a case against Malema at Hillbrow police for his remarks about the ANC government. To the ruling party, the EFF lord’s comment is tantamount to treason.
Yesterday, Nathi Nhleko – Police Minister disclosed that the Hawks are investigating the criminal charges against the EFF leader. Addressing journalists, the Minister said: “the matter is now being investigated by the Hawks,” and that “a due process of investigation is” followed.
