The African National Congress Youth League is complaining about what it sees as efforts to isolate its president Julius Malema.
This follows pronouncements by ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe that Malema has to toe the party line or face expulsion.
President Jacob Zuma also said in Parliament this week that Malema's views on the nationalisation of mines were his own and not the policy of the ANC.
Without mentioning Zuma or Mantashe by name, Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu says Malema speaks on behalf of the League, and millions of poor people, and should not be singled out for criticism.
