Former ANC Youth League president Julius Malema is working hard preparing for a new political party reported The Star on Tuesday.

The newspaper reported that Malema was consulting his supporters with the intention to establish a movement that will “restore the dignity of blacks” and reduce inequality between rich and poor.

In an interview with The Star, Malema said his political party would push for the expropriation of land without compensation and nationalisation of the country’s mines, and force the beneficiaries of apartheid to be remorseful “and behave in a manner that says they regret their conduct.

“We need a party that demands justice in this country,  that will say we need the land that was taken from our people and we are not going to pay for it. A party that will say those who were victims of apartheid stand to benefit unashamedly and those who perpetuated apartheid must show remorse and behave in a manner that says they regret their conduct,” Malema said.

Malema said that after watching the developments within the ANC and government, he had decided to organise “radical militants” in and outside the ANC “to come together and talk about an alternative platform”.

"We are being molested here. I refuse to sit back. It can't be. And I think there should be some sort of an announcement soon," he said.
