Economic Freedom Fighters youth in KwaZuluNatal have come out saying former President Jacob Zuma will always be considered their father figure.

They are also saying there was nothing wrong with Malema meeting up with the former President.

Vusi Khoza, the EFF KZN chairperson said although he did not have details of the meeting he welcomed the meeting.

He said the meeting of two leaders who share a long history was of significance because matters of the national interest were most likely to be discussed.

Khoza mentioned that Malema also met up with Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi and his majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini at some point.
