Malema gets chilly reception at university

2011-10-19 08:43
Johannesburg - ANCYL president Julius Malema has called for unity between his organisation and the SA Students' Congress (Sasco), according to a radio news report on Wednesday.

Malema appealed to the ANC Youth League and Sasco to campaign in a "dignified" manner, the SABC reported.

Speaking at Fort Hare University in the Eastern Cape on Tuesday night, Malema initially received a chilly reception from some Sasco members.

"When you campaign for Sasco, or the ANCYL, you must not speak bad (sic) of each other because you are going to make fools of yourselves," Malema said.

"Because tomorrow's students are going to see you walking together, they will be shocked about the lies you are telling them."

Sasco secretary Mawande Njeza said Malema was confusing students.

"Julius Malema, instead of coming to Fort Hare to clarify the fact that the ANCYL must not contest elections, he is coming to support the ANCYL in (sic) campus."

Njeza said Malema should leave the university, as Sasco would resolve all issues at Fort Hare.

As Sasco was traditionally ANC-aligned, it was not clear why both organisations were competing against each other in student politics.
