Malema apologises to Mbeki’s mother

2014-04-13 10:35

Cape Town - Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) leader Julius Malema on Saturday apologised to former president Thabo Mbeki’s mother and to the people of the Eastern Cape for having helped recall the former president and for replacing him with “nothing”, reported the Sunday Independent.

According to the newspaper, Malema made the statement while addressing about 2 000 EFF supporters at a rally in Mdantsane, East London.

Malema also apparently met with AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo who left the ANC for the DA last year.

According to the newspaper, Malema said he met with Mbeki’s mother and apologised for having been party to the recalling of her son. He said the ANC Youth League, which he was leader of at the time, had been “misled”.
