Mangaung will radicalise ANC - Malema

2011-11-20 22:01

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema warned that the ANC's national conference in Mangaung next year will radicalise the governing party.

"There is a groundswell of voices calling for change in the ANC with regards to the economy," Malema wrote in an article published in the Sunday World.

The article was published unedited and in full.

"Nationalisation of mines and expropriation of land without compensation will be policy outcomes," said Malema.

The party's new leadership would show signs of generational mix.

He said the African National Congress had thrived in difficult conditions for close to a century because it tolerated divergent views and perspectives, which were tested and adopted once there was consensus.

It seemed there was a temptation to erode this tradition, replacing it with intolerance and impatience, with older people across the political spectrum fearing change, said Malema.

"The South African racist society has somewhat influenced the older comrades to believe that what is today will be forever concerning the control and ownership of the economy," he said.

"Any voice that contradicts the status quo is vulgarised, banished, and treated with disdain because the interests of the ruling class are threatened."
