African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) president, Julius Malema, says he was not giving a ‘general lecture’ on rape victims when he made a controversial comment about a rape accuser.
Speaking during his appearance at the Equality Court in Johannesburg, Malema pointed out that, “It was not a general lecture on rape victims. It was a specific response to a specific case.”
Malema argues that if the Sonke Gender Justice Network had taken up an offer by ANC secretary-general, Gwede Mantashe, for a meeting with Malema to explain himself, the hearing before the Equality Court would not have been necessary.
