“We will never be led by Mmusi Maimane, we are Maimane’s leaders….he is a young man.”

It was not only President Jacob Zuma and the Guptas who came under attack from EFF leader, Julius Malema on Thursday afternoon. Responding to questions on whether his party will be working with the DA in the Nkandla matter or if they will be involved in any coalition with the main opposition party and other political parties, Malema swore that the EFF will never be led by Maimane.

“We are not talking to the DA about the Nkandla matter, and neither are we talking to the DA about a coalition.

“We will never be led by Mmusi Maimane, we are Maimane’s leaders….he (Maimane) is a young man, a person who came out of church straight into politics,” Malema said.

Regarding the proposed settlement by Zuma with regard to the Nkandla matter, which would see the President reimbursing some of the money spent on the upgrades of his rural private home, Malema said they only received the proposals this week.

The Nkandla matter will be heard in the Constitutional Court next week.-stevent@citizen.co.za
