Mmegi Online :: BNFYL still consorting with Malema








Former ANCYL president Julius Malema, who was expelled by ANC for misconduct and corruption, launched his new party in Marikana over the weekend and some members of the BNFYL led by secretary-general Arafat Khan attended the launch. The BNF claimed no knowledge of their visit.

Last year the BNFYL invited the controversial Malema to their congress, which the BNF saw as a threat to their bilateral relations with ANC.

Malatsi said it was no secret that BNF and ANC have relations that go a long way hence the fear that the relationship may be under scrutiny.

Malatsi was adamant that proper procedure was not followed to invite the youth league saying if it was so, communication should have been done between EFF and BNF.

"To make matters worse, Malema is not even a youth league president but the president of the EFF and he should have known better that he was supposed to deal with BNF," said Malatsi.

He said Khan admitted that they were invited through an e-mail that was never shown to the party. BNF secretary-general Ferdinard Kgosikoma did not believe that there was any invite made to the youth league, as they would have been aware of it. Kgosikoma said there was nothing wrong in the youth league member attending in their private capacity as long as they were not introduced as BNF members.
