African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) president Julius Malema has upset the Zimbabwean opposition political party, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), by meeting only Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party on a visit to Harare.

"Is Mr Malema saying that the ANC does not respect democracy and is willing to ignore the millions of Zimbabweans who sent Zanu-PF packing in the corridors of power?" asked Austin Moyo, chairperson of the MDC in South Africa, at a media briefing in Johannesburg on Thursday.

"Does Malema understand that there are millions of liberation heroes in the MDC?"


Moyo said that Malema made it clear that he would be visiting the Zanu-PF because it was "a revolutionary party".

"Is Mr Malema suggesting that fighting and defeating the black oppression of Zanu-PF [by the MDC] is not synonymous with a revolution?" Moyo asked.


He said that Malema's visit came at a crucial time, as Zimbabwe's unity government attempted to put to rest issues agreed upon during a visit by President Jacob Zuma last month.


"His talking to only one party will send the wrong signals because South Africa is the referee."
