Bhudu: starts ‘friends of malema’

2012-04-11 00:00

A GROUP calling themselves Friends of Julius Malema will on April 16 start a campaign that will, among other things, collect money for Malema.

Golden Miles Bhudu, leader of the Corrections and Civil Rights Movement, who leads the campaign, said in a statement yesterday that the aims were also to garner support and sympathy for Malema.

A website, facebook page and an SMS line will be used.

Malema was suspended from the ANC on April 4 after he said President Jacob Zuma traumatised the youth and was running a dictatorship. The suspension was effective immediately. Provincial leaders of the Youth League said they will not observe Malema’s suspension and will continue recognising him as president of the league.

Bhudu said the platforms will give people a chance to talk without fear about the “political tragedy”.

Funds will be raised through the SMS line; each SMS will costs R2.
