Johannesburg - Expelled ANCYL leader Julius Malema will on Wednesday address members of the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) in Johannesburg.

"The address is as a result of requests sent by the armed forces to Malema to come and listen to their cries and demands," suspended ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said in a statement.

Shivambu said the soldiers' complaints included being threatened with dismissal, and low salaries.

"Malema will listen to their demands and suggest solutions to end the unnecessary starvation and threats of dismissals to the soldiers."
