Johannesburg - EFF leader Julius Malema has labelled the disruption of the book launch of Gangster State as "thuggery" and "anti-intellectual".
Malema was speaking during an EFF presser on Wednesday and said there had been a book written about him but he never had the urge to call for the books to be burnt.
He was commenting on Tuesday night’s disruption of the book launch of Gangster State; Unravelling Ace Magashule's Web of Capture at Exclusive Books in Sandton.
The event was cut short after a group of people who were dressed in ANC T-shirts disrupted the launch and proceeded to tear pages from the book.
The group were reported to have chanted "Ace Ace" as they caused a commotion at the store. The book is written by journalist Pieter Louis Myburgh and centres on Magashule's alleged corrupt activities while he was the premier of the Free State and the chairperson of the ANC in the province.
