Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says seeing former President Jacob Zuma going to jail was a painful thing to watch and was something that he can never wish for his worst enemies.
Zuma is currently serving a 15-month jail term for contempt after defying a Constitutional Court order to appear before the State Capture Commission.
Malema says in as much as he differed with Zuma and even campaigned for his recall, his arrest is still painful to think of.
Malema has revealed that the meeting between him and Zuma earlier this year at Nkandla became so heated that members of the Zuma family had to intervene.
He said he went to Zuma to convince him to respect the Constitutional order to appear before the State Capture Commission.
Malema was speaking to SABC News on the eve of his party’s 8th anniversary. – SABC
