WATCH: Ramaphosa is a coward, says Malema


Newly elected African National Congress President Cyril Ramaphosa.

JOHANNESBURG - EFF leader Julius Malema has called ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa a coward for not having the guts to remove President Jacob Zuma.

He was speaking on the Justice Factor on Monday night.

Malema said Ramaphosa is known for being a coward.

"Many who love him say he takes long to make decisions, that’s why he took long to be president," he said.

"But I know him, he&39;s a coward. He will not take that type of decision."

Malema also said Zuma will be removed from power. He said the ANC should leave Zuma’s fate in the hands of Parliament as they have failed to remove him from office.

“We are in a process of removing Zuma, all we are asking for from the ANC is that it looks like this guy has defeated you, leave him to us,” Malema said at a media conference.
