A recent report claims that the ANC wants their former Youth Leader back. Ace Magashule is reported to have said he loves Julius Malema and is talking to him about his return to the ruling party.
News24 reports that the ANC's Secretary-General, Ace Magashule, is talking to EFF leader Julius Malema about him returning to the party.
Magashule was talking to ANC supporters in the North West province when he is reported to have said that he loves Malema and wants him to come 'home'.
I love Julius. I am talking to him to return home.
The report also indicates that Malema said his party would consider talking about a coalition with the ruling party after the elections.
The call on Malema to return to the ANC comes as big surprise as Malema made it clear he doesn't think the party can be saved.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Malema said not even Winnie Mandela could save the ANC.
Back in 212, Malema left the ANC (he was expelled) as Youth League president after being accused of causing divisions within the party.
Neither Malema nor Magahsule responded to the report, and it is not yet proven that the Secretary-General really did say he wants Malema to return.
