Malema denies any wrongdoing
Johannesburg- SOUTH Africa’s ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has denied any wrongdoing in the fallout between him and party elders that saw the notorious youth being hauled before a disciplinary hearinng. In a BBC interview this week, Malema said rather what he learnt from his recent disciplinary hearing is never to rely on any individual who is in politics. He refused to admit he had done anything wrong, saying he felt let down by those he had relied on. “Political education is my life,” he said on having to attend a political school as part of his punishment. He said he still supported President Jacob Zuma as he had done when it “wasn’t fashionable to do so”. “When people were ashamed to be associated with him, I supported him. Even when people were calling him names, I supported him,” said Malema. He remained steadfast on his views on nationalisation, saying South Africa’s economy remained racially divided. “I am fighting for the emancipation of blacks and Africans in particular, politically, socially and economically,” he said. He said there were racial divisions in South Africa and as the economy continued to grow, so did the gap between the haves and have-nots.
