Reading time 1 min.

South Africa’s ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leader Julius Malema has vowed that the youth of South Africa would die in supporting ANC President Jacob Zuma.

Malema is today quoted as saying “We are prepared to die for Zuma,” He added, “We are prepared to take up arms and kill for Zuma,”

The 27-year-old former Cosas Leader, who has committed himself to cleaning up the Youth League’s image.

Media reposts say earlier, Malema said there was no question that the ANC president would be the country’s next leader.

He added that those who did not respect the current ANC leadership should go.

Malema said those in the party who have indicated that they would not be available for positions in the new government, under Zuma, should not wait but leave now.


He also reiterated that the Scorpions case against Zuma, expected to begin later this year in the Pietermaritzburg High Court, should be dropped.

“The future belongs to us. We do not want a situation where the state prosecutes its own president,” Malema said.

He said the ANCYL was planning to assemble a legal team to try to get the case against Zuma thrown out of court.

Zuma could become president of South Africa next year with criminal charges still hanging over his head.
