Johannesburg - The ANC has denied claims that EFF leader Julius Malema was planning to return to the ruling party.

"The report in The Citizen: we are not aware of it. There are no discussions between the ANC and Malema," African National Congress spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said on Tuesday.

"However the ANC remains open to people who want to come back, who were members of the ANC before and left for whatever reason."

He said the ANC would not reject any person wanting to return "home" because it was an organisation of the people.

Talks

The Citizen reported that Malema was in talks with the ANC to return after he was expelled as ANC Youth League president and went on to become president of his own party the Economic Freedom Fighters.

Kodwa also dismissed the newspaper's other claim that EFF MP Magdalene Moonsamy would be returning to the ANC.

"We are unaware of her return," said Kodwa.

"If Malema and others want to come back voluntarily, the ANC will always welcome them."

Malema could not immediately be reached for comment on Tuesday.
