Malema calls SASCO students ‘little Zumas’

EFF leader Julius Malema has called on the students at the Nelson Mandela Metro University NNMU, formerly known as the University of Port Elizabeth, not to vote for the ANC’s student body, Sasco.

Referring to Sasco as “little Zumas”, Malema said, ahead of the election of the new SRC leadership, that students should “vote responsibly”.

"It is your responsibility to open the hearts and minds and ears of our people. For far too long our people have been misled, for far too long our people have been emotionally blackmailed,” he told the students.

Also present during Malema’s visit to the institution was ANC bigwig Malusi Gigaba. If Sasco loses out in the SRC elections at NNMU, that would add salt to the blow after losing to the DA’s student movement, Daso at the University of  Forthare.
