The ANC Youth League, arguably the party’s most powerful bloc, re-elected an unopposed Malema for another three-year term at its ongoing conference, South Africa’s Eyewitness News said.
No one was immediately available for comment at the youth league.
Long considered kingmakers within the ANC, the youth league has been used by senior members of the party to drive policy change and launch leadership races.
Malema helped South African President Jacob Zuma in his 2007 rise to power, although there has been friction between the two since, particularly over the issue of nationalisation. — Reuters
