AFRICANGLOBE – Julius Malema is preparing the ground for a new political party.
Malema was consulting his supporters with a view to establish a movement that would “restore the dignity of Blacks” and reduce inequality between rich and poor.
In a recent interview, the former ANC Youth League leader said the envisaged “forum” would fight for social justice rather than reconciliation and resume an “onslaught against White male monopoly capital”.
It would push for expropriation of land without compensation, nationalisation of mines, and force the beneficiaries of White apartheid to be remorseful, “and behave in a manner that says they regret their conduct”.
Julius Malema told reporters that corruption and abuse of public funds were rampant, while the culprits were being exonerated through “micromanaged” investigations.
He decided to organise “radical militants” in and outside the African National Congress “to come together and talk about an alternative platform”.
He further said: “I think we should find a way of sitting together and decide what to do. We are being molested here. I refuse to sit back. It can’t be. And I think there should be some sort of an announcement soon.”
Julius Malema rejected all opposition parties as irrelevant adding that his new forum would provide alternative policies.
