According to the Sunday Independent, Mthethwa had been addressing an ANC electoral conference in Limpopo on Friday night when, without actually mentioning Malema’s name, he made it clear that it was the former ANC Youth League leader who was to blame for the wholesale corruption that plunged the province into financial crisis in 2011.

Interim chairperson of the ANC provincial task team Falaza Mdaka also lashed out at Malema saying that they had seen ANC leaders being insulted by those whose blood was black, green and gold, but the skin was that of “the red ants full of corruption and desire to nationalise the mines and state assets in order to create a safe haven to steal government money and rob the poor”.
