Zuma: Malema not in charge of SA

2011-10-03 10:40
Johannesburg - The ANC and government are in charge of South Africa and not Julius Malema, President Jacob Zuma said on Monday.

“The African National Congress (ANC) and government are in charge,” he said during a business breakfast in Sandton on Monday morning, organised by the New Age newspaper and SABC.

The session was intended to give the president the opportunity to update the country about progress Zuma's administration had made since the State of the Nation address, at the start of the year.

Zuma said they had tried to control the ANC Youth League leader following his public utterances, and that the ANC had taken action against him because it felt he was getting out of control.

He was however quick to point out the ANC would not stop its leaders and members from raising issues.

Malema had made public statements about the nationalisation of mines and expropriation of land without compensation.

Malema, ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, league secretary general Sindiso Magaqa, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi were currently facing several charges before an ANC disciplinary committee.

They were brought after comments that the ANCYL would help bring about regime change in Botswana.

The six were also accused of sowing divisions within the party.
