Julius Malema Plans on Bringing “Radical Militants” Together to Form “An Alternative Platform”

An Inconvenient YouthJulius Malema has “decided to organise ‘radical militants’ in and outside the ANC ‘to come together and talk about an alternative platform’” reports Piet Rampedi for The Star.

Malema is quoted as saying that, “We need a party that demands justice in this country, that will say we need the land that was taken from our people and we are not going to pay for it. A party that will say those who were victims of apartheid stand to benefit unashamedly and those who perpetuated apartheid must show remorse and behave in a manner that says they regret their conduct”.

Rampedi also writes that an intelligence report was sent to President Jacob Zuma last year informing him of Malema’s intentions to start a party. Malema said that he thinks there will be an announcement soon.

Expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema is preparing the ground to form a new political party.

The organisation will advocate a radical policy shift in favour of black South Africans.

The Star can reveal that Malema is consulting his supporters with a view to establishing a movement that will “restore the dignity of blacks” and reduce inequality between rich and poor.

Moloko Moloto from The Star reported yesterday that Malema’s Schuilkraal farm had been bought for R2,5 million in an auction to help settle the R16 million that he owes SARS.

Moloto reports that the, “Asset Forfeiture Unit attached the farm in March because the authorities believe the property had been bought from crime proceeds after a R52m tender had allegedly been awarded illegally to On-Point Engineering.”

Julius Malema’s Schuilkraal farm went under the hammer on Monday, selling for R2.5 million.

Park Village Auctions sold off the R4 million farm outside Polokwane to bidder Callie Calitz of Wencor Holdings. Calitz’s company owns a farm neighbouring Malema’s property.
