Durban - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema on Monday apologised to Inkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi for remarks he made while he was with the ANC Youth League.

Malema made the apology at a joint press conference in Durban, preceded by a two-hour meeting between the two leaders.

“I apologise for unfortunate remarks that were made at the time,” he said.

Malema did not state specifically which remarks he was referring to.

Malema said the EFF had sought the meeting for some time.

He said a number of other issues were discussed during the two-hour meeting.
