Julius Malema: ANC’s Motive To Remove Zuma Is Factional

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema is seen at the protest movement's launch on Thursday, 11 July 2013. The EFF was different to other African National Congress breakaway parties, the expelled ANC Youth League president said at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg."We are not like Agang [SA] and all of them... We have a completely different plan." This plan included the non-negotiable principles of land expropriation and nationalisation of mines, both without compensation. The EFF sought to move away from a discourse of reconciliation to one of justice, Malema said. The EFF would hold a conference in Soweto on July 26 and 27 to work out its policies and manifesto.

EFF leader Julius Malema says the ANC’s call for President Jacob Zuma to step down is motivated by factional battles.

Malema was speaking at a media briefing outlining opposition parties’ plans to have Zuma removed.

“Why the ANC is not telling the reason why they want Zuma to go. People wake up in the morning and they are all saying, ‘We are in a discussion. We are all saying Zuma must go, Zuma must go.’ And then no one asks them the question why Zuma must go. You know the reason of the opposition,” said Malema.

“The ANC says Zuma must go for factional reasons. That is why you see Derek Hanekom dancing the way he’s dancing right now. He is happy that it is their time to eat. It is a factional reason why they want Zuma to go,” he said.

The ANC was hijacking the “genuine programme to demand Zuma to go” because this was to get rid of corruption.

“Why are they not saying through their mouths, ‘We want Zuma to go because he is corrupt, the court has found that he violated his oath of office.’ They have never said that because they agreed with everything that Zuma stands for. They want to continue with the same thing when they take power. They want  Zuma to go because it is the time for Cyril’s group to eat.”
