Julius Malema has made it clear that he will not be returning to the ANC. This comes after Deputy President David “DD” Mabuza told reporters at an ANC registration drive in Mamelodi, Tshwane, that he would do his best to bring the EFF’s commander-in-chief back into the governing party.

“The ANC has lost in comrade Julius. The ANC would be better off with him inside the fold, so I am going to do my best to request him to reconsider coming back home,” said Mabuza.

“I won’t do it, that thing is dead,” he tweeted in response to the Leanne Manas tweet.
“Worse they now have two presidents, one for ANC of Natal called Zupta and Ramapostponer for the rest and now I must go and join the confusion, never.”

“There’s no EFF joining the ANC… we’ll rather talk about the establishment of a new party completely and then we all leave our history there. This is the beginning of a new era.”

“In my imagination, the ANC will go below 50%, while the EFF will increase to 10%, so that “the ANC needs the EFF, the DA needs the EFF”, he said in the interview.
