Malema defends his ‘mama’ Winnie Madikizela-Mandela

Former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has come to the defence of his "mama" Winnie Madikizela-Mandela after she was criticised by ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe, the Saturday Star reported.

"Mama doesn't need Mantashe," Malema was quoted as saying.

"She was in the struggle long before Mantashe. Not even the boers could tell her to keep quiet. He is over-exaggerating his power and influence."

Mantashe had criticised Madikizela-Mandela calling her "ill-disciplined" after she attended a public event with Malema and other suspended ANCYL members.

Malema also attacked Mantashe's performance as secretary-general saying he had been "making a lot of stupid mistakes" for the ANC.

The former youth leader vowed that Mantashe would lose his position at the ANC's elective conference this December in Mangaung. – Sapa
