Pan-African youth supports Juju

2011-06-17 13:00

Julius Malema is the leader of the struggle for the poor people of Africa, said Tendai Wenyika, president of the Pan-African Youth Union, at the ANC Youth League’s national congress in Midrand today.

“Julius stands for the poor...,” said Wenyika, who is also a youth leader of Zanu-PF party in Zimbabwe.

She sang the song which contains the lyrics “shoot the boer” to the admiration of delegates who jumped onto their chairs to get a clear view of her.

Wenyika said the youth should never allow Africa to be sold for the love of “sugar”.

She called on delegates to ensure they elected brave leaders not “chickens and cowards”.

Delegates would vote for their new leadership later today.

Malema has completed a term as president of the league, and all the nine provinces have expressed support for him ahead of the congress for a second term.

The youth union is a representative body of youth movements across the African continent.
