South African ruling party, African National Congress (ANC) is extending an olive branch to its former Youth League President and now opposition Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) eader Julius Malema to “come back home”.

ANC Secretary – General Ace Magashule revealed that the party wants Malema to return to the divided organisation.

“I love Julius. I am talking to him to return home,” Magashule said.

He said Malema must come back to the ANC with his supporters.

Magashule, who was flanked by national executive committee members Dakota Legoete and Obed Bapela, Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans’ Association spokesperson Carl Niehaus and provincial leaders such as Kenetswe Mosenogi, told ANC supporters while on the campaign trail in Ikageng township, in Tlokwe, North West today that he “loves” Malema.

This week, Malema said the EFF would consider coalition talks with the ANC after the May 8 general elections.

In 2012, Malema was expelled from his position as ANC Youth League president, as well as from the party, for allegedly sowing seeds of division and bringing the name of the party into disrepute.

Magashule said black people were now smarter than white people. He said black pupils had proven former National Party leader Hendrik Verwoerd wrong by excelling in maths and science.

“Verwoerd is crazy wherever he is. If we teach our children correctly, everything will be fine.”

He said he wanted to see a lot of engineering and economics graduates.
