ANCYL march to Union Buildings

The ANC Youth League's two-day march for economic freedom has ended peacefully at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema jetted out to Mauritius two hours after leading the economic freedom march, the Sunday Times reported.

Malema was whisked away in a blue light convoy to catch a business class flight to party it up at his friend's wedding in Mauritius.

The wedding was that of his friend, Limpopo property developer David Mabilu.

Once Malema was seated on board the Air Mauritius aircraft, the pilot announced: "Please welcome Mr Julius Malema, the president of the ANC Youth League on board."

Mabilu, 42, married his fiancée, Phala Mokgophi, 38, at a glamorous ceremony on Saturday, in front of 300 guests.

The couple had splashed R10m on the three-day ceremony including flights and accommodation for their guests.
