Malema apologises to Manamela

2010-08-26 09:35
Johannesburg – ANC Youth League president Julius Malema apologised to Young Communist League national secretary Buti Manamela after he was booed by youth league delegates at their national general council in Midrand on Wednesday night.

"I apologise to comrade Buti Manamela for the conduct displayed here earlier and the delegates are agreeing with me... we in the ANCYL are disciplined," he said to bursts of laughter from some delegates at the Gallagher Estate venue. They then applauded.

"We ask [YCL chairperson] David Masondo to deliver the message of our apology to the YCL."

Manamela was drowned out by singing and banging on tables as he attempted to address delegates earlier. He barely got through paying respects to the leaders present when delegates started singing.

Manamela left the venue after failed attempts by ANCYL secretary-general Vuyiswa Tulelo, deputy chairperson Andile Lungisa and ANC deputy secretary-general Thandi Modise to call delegates to order.

"It is uncalled for that the commander's orders were defied," Malema said, referring to Modise.

In further apologising "unconditionally", Malema promised Manamela that all he said after leaving the venue would not be responded to.

"We will not degenerate to that level," he said.
