ANC says apology is not good enough

The African National Congress says a front page apology by The Star newspaper will not undo the damage done when they misquoted Youth League leader Julius Malema.
Several media sources reportedly quoted Malema as saying that “President Zuma had bad advisors”, and had been “making bad decisions since 2007”.
It is believed that the story had been written by freelance journalist Matome Sevelemetja, who has not responded to requests for the source of his information.
