Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has been branded as “populist, lumpen and right-wing demagogue,” the Communication Workers Union said to day in the statement.

“The CWU condemns Julius Malema, who is also known as tenderpreneur,” reads the union statement in apart

The union asserts that Malema is using the recent shooting of 34 mineworkers at the Lonmin mine in Marikana for his own political gain.

“It is not exactly known when this lumpen started to be involved in the mining sector.The loosely-structured Malema, who suffers from a never-ending verbal diarrhoea, has been scavenging, among others, on deceased workers to gain popularity.” Said the Union

The union accused Malema of using the deaths to engage in attacks against President Jacob Zuma, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the Congress of SA Trade Unions.

CWU’s slamming of Malema comes on the heels of comments from the National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu), criticising Malema also accusing him of “Nazi tactics”.

Malema spokesman Floyd Shivambu hit back against the unions and defended the expelled ANCYL president’s stance.

We don’t respond to fools.

“We don’t respond to fools. We don’t dignify fools,” Shivambu said.

Shivambu accused unions critical of Malema of themselves being in factional battles, and serving the interests of the sitting president Jacob Zuma.

“They’re narrow, they have no politics. They’re just a lackey of Jacob Zuma,” Shivambu was quoted as saying.

Since the shooting of the 34 mineworkers a month ago, Malema has been a fixture in the Rustenburg area, speaking to disgruntled mineworkers.

This week, Malema called on mine workers to go on a nationwide strike to remove the leadership of the NUM.

Two days ago, South Africa Defence forces were put to learnt when the news spread that Malema wanted to talk to soldiers over the pay. Malema, most probably feared man by ANC says ANC is in his blood.
