‘Not acceptable’: hints of move against Malema

2012-09-14 00:00

PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma yesterday hinted that the government was planning to move against expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

During yesterday’s question time, Zuma said there were “activities that are not acceptable, that were fomenting tension and unrest in the mining industry”.

“It is also some people of some description who are going there to instigate miners to operate in a particular way. It cannot be accepted.

“And therefore we are looking into that; we are going to be acting very soon,” he said.

In an earlier reply to a question on what he planned to do about “the uncontrollable Polokwane political Frankenstein, Malema, created by yourself”, Zuma laughed and said he had created no such person.

“I shouldn’t be blamed for somebody who has some characteristic of his own. It’s not my fault. I never participated in the production of such a person,” Zuma said, to jeers from the opposition.
