Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has said he doesn't have "time to waste" on thinking about expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

In an interview with The Guardian, Zuma was asked about Malema's personal attacks on him.

"I don't feel much because to me it has exposed what type of a person he is, it has exposed the depth of his politics, it has exposed to me the level of his care and love of the organisation. When he says he loves it, anyone who loves this organisation does not behave like that. I don't think I've got time to waste on such matters really," Zuma replied.

The president said he wouldn't guess on whether Malema's political career is finished, but added that this depends on how he moves. "You could have your political career continue but in a totally different way."

However, he pointed out that Malema has been expelled from the ANC.

"I'm not certain that he's doing anything for people to think expelling was not the right remedy," Zuma said.
