Speaking on a television programme, ‘Asikhulume’ on SABC1 Sunday light, Malema asked to be allowed to stay on in the ANC, saying the membership to the ruling party was his life and that he had joined the anti-apartheid movement at the age of nine.

Malema, 31, confirmed he would appeal against the ANC decision last month to expel him on charges of sowing divisions within its ranks, which he denies.

The suspended ANC Youth League Leader insisted he had done nothing wrong by calling for nationalisation of mines and the seizure of white-owned land in South Africa.
