Embattled ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leader Julius Malema will reach the point of no return, the ruling party said in a strongly worded statement.
On Friday, he lashed out at President Jacob Zuma during a speech at Wits University in Johannesburg.
Malema accused Zuma of trying to suppress the voice of the youth.
He also said the ANCYL was traumatised by the president and his dictator-like approach.
According to the statement, Malema’s attacks on party leaders have reached intolerable levels of disrespect.
The ruling party also disputed the claims.
This was not the first time Malema attacked ANC top brass, but it was the first time Zuma’s name was explicitly mentioned since his expulsion.
The ANC said Malema should have used existing channels within the organisation to raise his concerns.
In February, the firebrand politician was expelled from the ruling party for sowing divisions.
Malema is in the process of appealing the ANC National Disciplinary Committee (NDC)’s decision.
