Reds heckle Malema

2009-12-11 00:00

TURFLOOP — ANC Youth League president Julius Malema was booed and heckled at the SA Communist Party’s special national congress yesterday morning, a sign that all is not well between the ANC and its alliance partners.

The incident follows the recent mud-slinging between Malema and SACP deputy secretary-general Jeremy Cronin, the Deputy Transport Minister.

When Malema and the other youth league leaders were welcomed at the University of Limpopo’s auditorium yesterday morning, the estimated 1 000 delegates didn’t hesitate to boo and heckle him.

The delegates expressed their dismay with other youth league members in the same way.

The incident came only a day after SACP secretary-general Blade Nzimande, the Minister of Higher Education, conceded that the co-operation between the ANC and its two alliance partners — the SACP and Cosatu — is very good at national level, but that there are still several snags at the lower levels.
