ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema vowed again on Sunday to “take land without payment” at the closing ceremony of his organisation's elective conference in Midrand.

“There is no way you can be diplomatic about the issue of land. We will never be diplomatic about willing buyer, willing seller. It has failed,” Malema told delegates.

He said the African National Congress, at its last elective conference in Polokwane, in December 2007, acknowledged that an alternative needed to be found to the willing buyer, willing seller policy.

“The leadership of the ANC must implement the Polokwane resolution. Polokwane said willing buyer, willing seller has failed and we must find an alternative.

“You have failed to find an alternative. We must take the land without payment,” said Malema.

But he added: “If you have got an alternative, we are prepared to listen.”

Malema said the delegates who attended the four-day conference were “ready to confront white monopoly capital”.

“They are determined to reclaim their land and we are asking for leadership.”

And if the ruling party's leadership failed on this matter, the youth league would “lead an unled revolution which seeks to reclaim the land”, said Malema. - Sapa
