President Jacob Zuma says the ANC has to mould Julius Malema into a dynamic leader. In an interview at his Pretoria residence, Zuma said the aim was not to remove the Youth League leader from the party.
But he has to allow the ANC to help him become a good leader. Zuma stressed that Malema would have to watch his conduct if he wanted a future in the ruling party.
The disciplinary hearing of the leadership of the Youth League resumes this morning.
Meanwhile, the ANC has announced that it will appeal the decision by Judge Collin Lamont to ban the singing of the Shoot the Boer song.
Proponents of free speech have also slammed the ruling in the Equality Court which declared the song hate speech.
People who sing the song will be in contempt of court. AfriForum, which brought the case, plans to oppose the appeal.
