President Cyril Ramaphosa and Deputy President David Mabuza have both called for Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema to return to the ANC.
Both Mabuza and Ramaphosa spoke to the media during this weekend's voter registration drive. Mabuza admitted the ruling party would be “better off” with Malema on their side - a statement the President seemed to agree with.
Speaking to Breakfast with Bongani Bingwa, eNCA news anchor Cathy Mohlahlana said it would be interesting to see how Malema responds to the invitation.
