He talking rubbish, CR is the one who opposed it. Zuma told me that we should remove Mbeki because he can’t work with him.— Julius Sello Malema (@Julius_S_Malema) February 14, 2018
He never opposed it, he actively supported it and mobilized all of us to support the removal of Mbeki. CR opposed it and @GwedeMantashe1 argued that instead of removing Mbeki, let’s call early elections.— Julius Sello Malema (@Julius_S_Malema) February 14, 2018
