Comment on this story
IOL SS MALEMA02 Reuters Suspended ANC Youth League President Julius Malema.

The ANC Youth League has been seen as a threat and people want to crush it, its president Julius Malema said on Monday night.

“Those opposed to the youth league want to plant divisions in the African National Congress,” he told Metro fm in a live interview.

“Those forces... are working day and night to undermine economic freedom.”

He said “those people” were monopoly capitalists working in the media and in the ANC.

“Some of them are in the pockets of white capitalists,” he said.

Malema said he was ready to leave the ANCYL and was adamant he had not done anything wrong.

He said the new ANCYL president would have to continue with the resolutions already adopted.

“And when that leader pronounces on them, he will also be expelled,” he said. - Sapa
