Resource Nationalisation: “Malema: ‘Nationalisation will become ANC policy'” [Mail & Guardian, SA]

The following is a news article from the South African newspaper, Mail & Guardian (Feb 19 2010 10:08):

The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) does not want President Jacob Zuma’s support in its bid for nationalisation — it wants the support of the masses, its leader, Julius Malema, said on Thursday.

“We don’t care who says what. Nationalisation will become the policy of the ANC,” he said during a memorial lecture at the University of the Witwatersrand, commemorating former president Nelson Mandela’s release from prison 20 years ago.

“We don’t want Zuma’s or [Deputy Police Minister Fikile] Mbalula’s support … we want the support of the masses. If the masses say you are correct, we will march on,” Malema said.

The article goes on to say however, that “…during debate on his State of the Nation address in Parliament, Zuma told opposition parties nationalisation of mines was not government policy“.
