Malema thanks ANC for firing him

2014-04-29 08:43

Johannesburg - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema is grateful that the ANC expelled him from the party, The Star reported on Tuesday.

Speaking to a crowd in Moloto, Mpumalanga on Monday, he said: "We want to thank the ANC for expelling Julius Malema.

"Without that, we would not have known the true revolution. The ANC only talks about positions... but we speak of true messages. We thank them for expelling us. It was a nice thing," Malema was quoted as saying.

Malema, who headed the ruling party's youth league, was expelled in 2012 after he was found guilty of sowing divisions within the party.

He promised the Moloto community that he would deliver on reportedly unfulfilled promises President Jacob Zuma made to them in 2011.

"We spoke about this killer road (while) speaking about the suffering of the people here," Malema said, referring to the notorious Moloto road.

"Here is the road killing people day in and day out, but nothing is being done."

He promised to expand the road and construct a railway line which would link Limpopo, Gauteng and Mpumalanga.

"We will introduce a speed train to transport you to Pretoria in less than 30 minutes," Malema said.
