Axed ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema and former ANC chief whip Tony Yengeni featured in songs on Thursday at the SA Communist Party's elective conference near Empangeni.
"Malema hates this party but we don't care, Yengeni hates this party but we don't care (asinandaba uMalema uyayizonda le party, asinanda uYengeni uyayizonda le party)", delegates sang.
Yengeni is a member of the national executive committee of the African National Congress. He lost his position of chief whip after accepting a discount on a luxury car during the tendering process for the country's arms deal.
At the time, he was a member of a Parliamentary committee reporting on the arms deal. Yengeni went to prison in 2006, and was released on parole after serving six months of his sentence.
Malema was expelled as president of the ANC Youth League in April.
In another song, some delegates advised him: "Malema don't be in a hurry to fight in a war because it kills (Malema ungayijahi impi ngoba iyabulala)."
A song in support of President Jacob Zuma was also sung.
"The enemy is near but MK is ready to fight for Msholozi [Zuma's clan name] (izinja zilele kufokhona emzini kaMsholozo kodwa amagerilla abuyile)."
The delegates at the conference were to be addressed later in the day by SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande, national chairman Gwede Mantashe, deputy general secretary Jeremy Cronin and premier Zweli Mkhize.
