The ANC Youth League has come out in defence of its leader, Julius Malema, following reports over the weekend of alleged tender fraud.
The League’s deputy president, Ronald Lamola, says the allegations are racially motivated.
He told a news conference at Luthuli House in Johannesburg that they will not stand idly by while their leader is targeted
The League accused the media of being bribed by imperialists to join in their supposed bid to prevent the nationalisation of mines.
Responding to weekend reports about Julius Malema’s alleged involvement in tender fraud, Sindiso Magaqa, the League’s secretary general says the allegations are aimed at distracting the organisation from its work.
