Malema to go all out to fight expulsion

Julius Malema spoke to Metro FM confirming that he intends to put up a fight for his survival in the party. Watch what he had to say about the ANC leaders. WATCH

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has questioned the logic behind his recent expulsion from the ruling party.

He was initially suspended for five years on three charges, but was expelled after going back to the ANC's national disciplinary committee to present evidence in mitigation on two charges, he said in a live interview with Metro fm on Monday night.

"So you ask yourself, where is the logic here? What are the real issues? Are we really dealing with charges?"

Malema was expelled from the African National Congress last week for bringing the party into disrepute and sowing division in its ranks.

Done nothing wrong

On Monday, he said he had done nothing wrong.

"The reason I do not have nightmares and the reason I do not have regret, the reason why I'm not personally hating, is because I've not done anything wrong," he said.

"I've not stabbed a person. I've not been charged with rape. I've not been charged for corruption. I've not been charged for organising factional meetings, and benefitting my own family. I'm not charged about those things. I'm charged about what has been written in the resolutions of the youth league."

Malema said he was happy to have made a contribution to the struggle and to the ANC.

He said the ANCYL had been seen as a threat and that people wanted to crush it.

Divisions


"Those opposed to the youth league want to plant divisions in the ANC.

"Those forces... are working day and night to undermine economic freedom."

He said "those people" were monopoly capital working in the media and in the ANC.

"Some of them are in the pockets of white capitalists."

Malema said he was ready to leave the ANCYL.

He said the new ANCYL president would have to continue with the resolutions already adopted.

"And when that leader pronounces on them, he will also be expelled," he said.
