2010-02-21 09:24

Investigations editor Dumisane Lubisi called Julius Malema ­yesterday ­morning. Malema asked to be sent an SMS instead. Here is the chain of text messages that followed:

Malema : “Pls SMS.”

Lubisi : “Julius, my name is Dumisane Lubisi and I am the ­investigations editor for City Press. I would like to speak to you about your association with SGL Engineering Projects and about Lesiba ­Cuthbert Gwangwa as well as contracts worth R140?million awarded to the company by municipalities around Limpopo. I can send detailed questions on email if you prefer, just let me know the email address. Regards Dumisane.”

Malema : “Are you married?”

Lubisi : “Yes.” (shocked by the relevance of the question)

Malema : “Ask your partner those questions.”

Lubisi: “Julius, I would like to confirm that this is your last publishable comment on the matters raised by SMS earlier?”

Malema: “Yes.”

Lubisi: “Thanks and have a good weekend.”
