Scores of ZANU-PF youths, senior party officials and the business community thronged the Harare International Airport to welcome ANC youth league President Cde Julius Malema.


Addressing journalists after his arrival Cde Malema said the purpose of his visit was mainly to share ideas with fellow ZANU-PF youths and to strengthen relations between the two parties.


He said the two youth wings represent the future hence the need to liaise and share ideas and views.


Cde Malema called for the removal of illegal sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe and criticised the western imperialists for using their economic muscle to try and effect change on the country.


He commended ZANU-PF for remaining resolute even during trying times and said the youth from his country have been inspired by the party’s resistance to imperialist influence and will learn lessons from Zimbabwe’s land re-distribution programme.


The ANC Youth President who is well known for his un-apologetic push for youth empowerment is expected to hold a youth rally in the capital and tour some farms and mines to have an appreciation of the struggle that the country has gone through in its quest to empower the majority.
