Motlanthe takes issue with Malema’s school visits

African National Congress (ANC) deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe has criticised ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema’s school visits, according to a report in the Sowetan on Thursday.

“We cannot call upon teachers and learners to be at school on time and then want to address them during school time, it cannot work that way,” said Motlanthe. “That is an excuse of people who want to disrupt learning and we should not tolerate that.

“Principals, teachers and learners themselves should never accept that, it does not matter who it is,” he said.

The ANC Youth League leader has recently visited several schools in Gauteng and the North West.

Malema told the daily: “If the deputy president has a problem with the youth league he must raise it with us.

“He has unlimited access to the league. Until he does that, I don’t see why I should respond to whatever he is saying, he is not the ANC.” – Sapa
