The ANC National Youth Task Team has condemned Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema after he went on a tirade against President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Briefly.co.za reported that Malema had accused Ramaphosa of selling South Africa off to the highest bidder years ago, dubbing him a 'b*stard' in the process.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the ANC NYTT condemned the 'verbal diarrhoea' uttered by the Red Beret boss:
"Malema failed dismally in his attempt for relevance and his conduct is a slap in the face to the struggle to defeat systematic racism that black people continue to be victims of. Demagogues and bigot like Malema will not contribute anything meaningful to the noble cause of confronting and defeating the deep-seated racial inequalities that Africans are subjected to."

The ANC NYTT pointed out that Ramaphosa had been entrusted with the position of chairperson of the African Union, continuing to say that:
"Narrow-minded capitalists, nincompoops and comical characters like Malema who thrive on anarchy will continue to be rejected as they have nothing to offer expect insults. In his verbiage, Malema was at his usual self-praising theatrics with the usual career-saving nods by his supporters who have to outdo themselves to please him."
The NYTT continued to say that it understood the EFF leader is beyond reproach, urging SA to reject his theatrics instead:
"We know that Malema is beyond reproach and is a lost cause and therefore we urge South Africans to reject his foolishness at a time where we are all galvanised to fight against racial injustices where black people's lives do not matter in certain parts of the world."
