702 and CapeTalk callers say the ANC is showing signs of desperation when they called the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters Julius Malema to return to the party.
During the IEC voter registration weekend, ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa and Deputy president David Mabuza called on all those who left the party to return home.
I think this is very desperate move for the ANC to call Julius Malema to come back to the ANC because Julius is already a kingmaker, his enjoying to be a powerful person in the EFF.— Lerato from Katlehong
It is such a temptation for Julius because he is so power hungry. With all these power hungry politicians their ultimate goal is presidency and they don't care about anybody else they only care about their own political careers.— Kim from Springs
I think the ANC no longer has a backbone. The way they make resolutions and go back on them - for example last year they voted against land expropriation without compensation but all of a sudden this year they voted with the EFF. Six years ago they kicked Julius Malema out now they re calling him back in. They will do anything for votes, this is a desperate attempt.— Xolani from Kensington
I'm very disappointed at our President to actually come out openly and say he wants Julius Malema back. In that way now he is actually admitting to that fact that Malema is above him; he can't deal with him.— Sydney from Johannesburg
Listen to what callers say about the call for members to return to the ANC
Here is Julius Malema's response to the call by the ANC leadership
I won’t do it, that thing is dead. Worse they now have two presidents, one for ANC of Natal called Zupta and Ramapostponer for the rest and now I must go and join the confusion, never.— Julius Sello Malema (@Julius_S_Malema) March 12, 2018
