We're not going to compromise like Madiba, says Malema

Malema told a gathering at the Oxford Union Society "the world's most prestigious debating society" as quoted by the website, that Nelson Mandela sold out on the Freedom Charter.

JOHANNESBURG - Julius Malema rocked the boat of the South African Chamber of Commerce (SACC) in London on Wednesday night.

The EFF's National Chairperson, Advocate Dali Mpofu and Deputy President Floyd Shivambu joined Malema on his 'business talk' UK tour, which ends on Saturday.

Malema told a gathering at the Oxford Union Society -- the world's most prestigious debating society, as quoted by the website -- that Nelson Mandela sold out on the Freedom Charter. 

He also took a swipe at BEE and other prominent South Africans. 

The EFF leader's comments set Twitter abuzz.

According to Business Day, the EFF leader was asked by concerned members of the SACC in London to tone down his rhetoric, but he refused.

The paper reports that Malema and Investec’s Stephen Koseff had a "robust exchange".

According to Malema they found it interesting and aren't scared of robust exchanges.
