Tie your dog - BDP man tells ANC

Mmegi Online "FRANCISTOWN: Julius Malema is a dog that should be kept tightly on the leash, the chairman of the Botswana Democratic Party's (BDP) Francistown Region, Botho Ntirang, said over the weekend."
Ntirang, who was addressing a rally at the Tatitown freedom square on Saturday, said he was prepared to die in defence of Botswana against "prematurely-aged Malema".

"Malema is a loose canon," he said. "He insults everybody, including his own president, Jacob Zuma. No wonder he looks older than his age."

He appealed to the ANC "to keep its dog on the leash". Malema stirred controversy last week when he branded the ruling BDP a puppet government that was ever-bending to the whims of imperialists and a security threat to the African continent.
