Cyril Ramaphosa is not going to be president - Malema #CapNews

Johannesburg – EFF leader Julius Malema has weighed in on the ANC succession debate ahead of the ruling party's 54th national elective conference in December.


Malema was speaking to journalists at the EFF headquarters in Johannesburg following the freedom fighters' plenary meeting at the weekend.

He gave his personal view on the candidates expected to battle it out for leadership when President Jacob Zuma steps down as president of the party in December.

"Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma will be president if Zuma wants her to be," said Malema.

But the EFF commander-in-chief said if she does emerge victorious it would have little to do with affirming her abilities to lead the party as its first female president.

"That thing of South Africa being ready for a female president is just rhetoric. He's trying to sound smart, to appear like he supports women," Malema said. 'Nkosazana is corrupt'.

He claimed Dlamini-Zuma's task, if she does take over from Zuma, would be to protect him from facing corruption charges.

Malema also poked holes in the outgoing African Union Commission chairperson's credibility.
"Nkosazana is corrupt, how do you accept an award from the Guptas if you are not corrupt? How do you legitimise such an illegal institution that is stealing money from our government?" asked Malema.

In 2015, Gupta-owned broadcaster ANN7 named her "South African of the Year".
