We support Malema - Cosas

2010-02-23 10:38
Johannesburg - The Congress of SA Students (Cosas) in Gauteng supports ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, provincial secretary Oagile Louw said on Tuesday.

"Comrade Malema, like any other South African, has the right to contest for tenders. We pronounce without any fear of contradiction or intimidation that we remain behind comrade Julius," Louw said.

Cosas was reacting to reports of Malema's plush lifestyle allegedly being bankrolled by government tenders.

He said if people wanted Malema probed, then they should start by re-opening the Truth and Reconciliation Commission process because there were still unresolved cases there.

Lifestyle audit

Louw said the lifestyle audit backed by the Congress of SA Trade Union should include the trade union's own leaders and those of the SA Communist Party.

Over the weekend, newspapers reported that SGL Engineering, a company listed under the directorship of Malema, had received R140m in tenders from the Limpopo government.

Opposition parties and human rights organisations called for the SA Revenue Service and Public Protector to investigate Malema.

On Monday, Malema denied he had benefited from tenders and called the reports "lies". He said he had resigned from the company in 2008.
