SA has a lot to learn from Zim - Malema

2012-10-15 10:13

Cape Town - Expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has praised Zimbabwe as an inspiration to Africa, saying South Africa has a lot to learn from that country, a report said on Monday.

According to Herald online, Malema who travelled to Zimbabwe last week to attend the wedding of Zanu-PF youth league members said the country was "wholly independent and divested itself of external control".

"We are coming here to Zimbabwe not because we are running away from problems, but to come and gain strength because what you have achieved is an inspiration to Africa.

"Don’t listen to imperialist newspapers. You have achieved a lot. You are running your own country, you have been managing your own affairs and you are not controlled by foreigners. That is what we need in South Africa.

"So we came here just to seek an inspiration and wisdom so that when we go home, we can double the spirit of fighting against imperialist forces.’"

Malema said the African struggle was not ambiguous as it had clear, set goals.

"Our struggle is a defined struggle. We are not a lost generation. We are asking what belongs to us. We are not asking for any favour neither are we victimising anybody."

Future generation


He said the youths in South Africa were calling for whites to surrender land and minerals resources they hold because "when they came from Europe they did not carry any land into South Africa.

"What we are asking is for them to surrender our minerals because they did not come with any mineral. We want that land and those minerals for free because they never paid for those minerals."

He continued: "Actually they killed people to get that land and those minerals. We are not going to give them money when we take the land back because it will be like we are thanking them with money for killing our people. We will never do that, little did they know that we are not scared of blood.

"We are scared of defeat. We don’t want to be defeated but seeing blood is not what we are scared of as long as that blood delivers what belongs to us we are prepared to go to that extent. Because it cannot be generations before us, which has failed to deliver what rightfully belongs to us and we equally fail the future generation. We want to be remembered as a generation of economic freedom fighters.”

Malema said the youths would want to be remembered as a generation that delivered land and that delivered mineral resources to the indigenous people.

Malema who was ousted by the ANC leadership early this year, said he will never run away from problems he is facing in South Africa and was in Zimbabwe to gain strength to double his fight against ‘imperialists’ back home.

    malema has alot of screw loose in his head!

      linda.nzimamazibuko - 2012-10-15 10:25

      if any but by the look of things he does not have any screw in his head! I suggest the government NATIONALISE ON-POINT ENGINEERING!

      lorain.maseko - 2012-10-15 10:50

      @ Linda now thre is a great plan if I have heard one,nationalize On-Point engineering and Ratanang trust

      helio.paulo.7 - 2012-10-15 10:52

      @Linda...thats a brilliant suggestion, lets start by nationalising Malemas assets

      bob.mcmillen.564 - 2012-10-15 10:58

      Well there you have it froms the pigs, oops horses mouth, the fat boy thinks Zim is a shining example of an African country and is where he wants to take SA, what more can I say, is that not proof enough for you Malema supporters ?.

      thasmeel.singh - 2012-10-15 11:01

      everyone with a brain knows that when ordinary people are suffering, malema will be living the high life. thats why he pushing for nationalization. he will probably be the one who will get the tenders. he a moron!

      sean.bagley.50 - 2012-10-15 13:13

      Malema has got me in stitches laughing so hard at all the garbage that comes out of his mouth.

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-10-15 15:17

      I think malema was VERY impressed with the latest technological advances in zimbabwe - the synchronized toilet flushing: to clear the sewage of zim!

      heinrich.swart.3 - 2012-10-15 15:20

      Did the black population or the "indigenous" bring any land or minerals to south africa from central Africa? That must be incredible!

      michelle.blackie - 2012-10-15 10:55

      But does Malema realise that he is a Dilema? I think that being Malema is a DILEMA! Thank you for the chuckle!

      rontheogre - 2012-10-15 11:26

      This proves the point that when you mix Malema's brain with sugar you get sweet boggerol.

      mix malema's brain with sugar, you are left with sugar.

      this oak is fighting everyone - the imperialists, the 3rd forces, the jacob's camp, the hawks, the public protector and the whites - he must call this the 3rd world war (in his little pea-brained world that is)... I WISH - actually I would pay MONEY to see ANYEONE punch this idiot in the teeth and see his own blood - let's see THEN if he is feeling tough again! Also, by the sounds of it, he went to zim to gain strength and return to sa and renew the fight (that is h=in his head), if that is not a direct threat to commit treason with outside forces again sa, I don;t know what is! LASTLY - Europeans (white people) have migrated OUT OF AFRICA! many eaons ago, then they had an entire history that created a civilization which later returned to their roots - AFRICA! I don't think that coming home means we have to carry our original lands with! And what is this thing about my pigmentation making me a criminal? I am white - THAT does not make me a criminal, this guys is heading for a law suite and a half..!

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-10-15 15:11

      lol @ theO rAcLe - actually that large Hydron Collider they have in the swiss, they are looking for these elusive particles that would explain quite a lot about science - there is a LOT of elusive matter in his brain! It has eluded him since he tried to get a clue!

      elliot.rapotu - 2012-11-05 18:11

      Propaganda works just like that. The onus is on the laymen of SA to decide whether they want the economic power in the hands of the ANC elite or the same old imperialists. Malema is protecting his interests just like anyone. The fraudulent money malema has is nothing compared to the real social imbalances of this country. I don't think Julius' intentions are as devious and inhumane as the ones that historically reigned in this country. The remnants are clearer now that we have smelt the freedom. We'll fight criminals like Julius when the right time comes. The war should be with heirs and heiresses who want to secure their comfort zones that was created for them at the expense of others. A car is still stolen even if it's not in the hands of the actual thief. The person in possession of the stolen car should not be stubborn if a compromise situation is being created. The difference between then and now is institutional racism and attitudinal racism. The a lot of issues bubbling under in this country.

" That is because if you cut Malema, only gravy flows out :) The gravy of his own people that he is robbing blind.

He is nowhere politically, yet everytime he opens his piehole, the press are there like rabid dogs, publishing all the crap that falls out of that big mouth. It does nothing for the country, nothing for our citizens and stuffs up our image globally and our currency to boot. If anything, he should be behind bars with all the charges running against him. STOP GIVING THIS IDIOT A PLATFORM!!

Desperation is not a good colour on you Mr malema if anything it shows weakness.

    80 per cent of what malema says is correct and he just need this missing link to get him a 100. People are now concentrating on the 20 percent and make a meal out of it. The context is rite, wealth needs to be redistributed but using proper measures.

      MarcoLValente - 2012-10-15 10:42

      Really? And why does it need to be redistributed? What happened to EARNING the wealth you refer to instead of waiting for handouts?

      I ask for objectivity here and frank talk. What we saw in marikane is a typical example that shows we are getting things wrong. No one even bothered to assess the mineworkers conditions prior the massacre, it was never in the agenda at all. The mine bosses are ignoring the mine charter and getting away with it.

      mzwandile.dlamanzi - 2012-10-15 11:10

      Dr Gonzo, we can have ZIMBABWE as part of our learning package to get things rite. It does not help to have the majority of our wealth to a small section of the country. We have one SA citizen as a billionare and the next one does not even have a job. But we are all humen! Its a big no for me.

      moi.carla.1980 - 2012-10-15 11:10

      Who is running the mines mzwandile? It's not the whites. It's your comrades. They don't care about the masses. THe only thing they care about is all the wealth that they have. You're deluded if you think that Julius is any different. Yes, he'll kill all the white people to take their belongings. If you think that he is going to share any of it with you, then there is no hope for you.

      james.hurley.1401 - 2012-10-15 11:13

      @mzwandile - I completely agree about Marikana, I think it's criminal that workers earn so little in comparison to CEOs, I don't think in any just society anyone should earn more than R20 000 more than anyone else pm (I mean, to me that is already a huge gap and more than enough compensation for extra training, etc). I'm all for a compromise between capitalism and socialism, I don't see why anyone needs to earn way more than to comfortably live on, its greed. 12 500 a month isn't much in take-home pay. That said, I think one should be clear that 'wealth redistribution' means spreading skills and education, rather than grabbing wealth from people, because forcing people who have the skills out of their jobs or off their property will not provide the poor with upliftment in the long term. Skills are most important of all, thus education should be a priority.

      Watkykj - 2012-10-15 11:15

      Mzwandile the reason there are rich people is because they have worked hard (80 hrs weeks) to get there companies where they are. A lot of people in this country want the job, but don't want to have the work that comes along with it. They have this give me attitude.

      tommy.jones.754918 - 2012-10-15 11:16

      First learn how to spell right, then we can get things "rite".

      tonyzr2tx - 2012-10-15 11:17

      The way to correct the imbalance is to uplift the poor not pull down the rich. The only way this can be achieved is by promoting profitable employment not nationalizing business. Profit is the force that drives wealth.

      irma.white.9 - 2012-10-15 11:45

      Mzandile, while we are busy distributing wealth, can I (a born and bred South African) also have some? I need to pay off my credit card, my loans, etc.

      goldwright - 2012-10-15 11:53

      martha.stclair - 2012-10-15 13:35

      @mzwandile, I agree with you, there needs to be less of a bridge between the haves and the have not. But that is the job of the government. We pay taxes (the more you earn, the more you pay) and that money is giving to government to improve the lives of all South Africans. The problem is that the money is not being used correctly. Billions of rands which were earned by hard working people then handed over to the government have been stolen. Economic freedom for all can be achieved but only if we have an honest, transparent government. And don't be fooled by Julius, he talks the talk, but I promise you, he doesn't care. Do you reckon if you arrived at his mansion in Sandton, he would invite you in for a JW Blue and a chat? I some how think not. If you want economic freedom, work hard and vote wisely and maybe, one day, we can all unite and enjoy this amazing country of ours.

      mzwandile.dlamanzi - 2012-10-15 14:01

      Martha well said. As for malema, i just concur with his opinion on empowerment. Him at his own capacity is something different. His house in sandton and a cattle farm or on point engineering has other people to worry about like hawks, police and public protector.

      I at times think out of the box and for those who are telling me to spell right correctly, i can simply say its not my fault that you are not on social networking its your age. To say rite instead of right is more convinient and after all i am not writing this for a teacher.

      justin.sly.77 - 2012-10-15 16:49

      Redistribution, SA style - There are 4 apples, take 2 from Peter to give to Sizwe, now Peter is upset as he only has 2 apples, Sizwe is happy because he got 2 apples for mahala! Unfortunately for Sizwe, after he has eaten his 2 mahala apples he has no more apples! By this time Peter has worked hard, harvested 2 more apples to replace the 2 that were taken from him, he now has 4 again, he is still upset, but he can overlook it and move on. But now, eish, Sizwe is upset, he now no longer has his 2 apples, he makes a fuss and another 2 apples are taken from Peter for Sizwe. Peter gives up, and leaves. Sizwe takes the trees, as Sizwe is the type that prefers hand outs to actually working, the trees die. Sizwe now has no apples, Peter has left, there are no more apples and everyone is unhappy.

      justin.sly.77 - 2012-10-15 16:54

      Redistribution, the actual solution - Peter has 4 apples, Sizwe comes to Peter and says, I would like to grow my own apples, how do I go about doing that. Peter provides education on how to grow and harvest apples. Sizwe starts out and manages to produce 2 apples, he is invigorated and works harder, next time he grows 4 apples, then the next 6 apples. In the meantime between Sizwe and Peter they have grown hundreds of apples and everyone is happy! Dividing up 4 apples, still leaves you with 4 apples. Teaching a man to grow his own apples = 100's apples. I suppose to the average cANCer supporter this sounds too much like hard work.....Cry the beloved country...

      james.hurley.1401 - 2012-10-15 18:15

      @justin cool analogy. Pity there aren't many Peters teaching anyone to grow apples though.

      Yes, all the people are for empowerment, me included. The people in charge should be humaniterian in nature and not self serving. Mzw, please have a look at Jordan maxwell on youtube. It gives great insight

    Shame, no more buddies in SA. Now he's running to Papa Mugabe and his mafia. And what a wonderful job they have done in Zim too!

  • goldwright - 2012-10-15 10:41

    Yes, SA has a lot to learn from Zim that's for sure - to learn about the mistakes of holding on to power, even though it was clear that the majority of the people wanted ZPF out & the MDC in. SA can learn about the evil of opressing your own people, from throwing them down mineshafts in the 1980's, from razing down houses, from destroying an economy, from putting a fear so great into people that millions fled the country (many of those millions fleeing into SA and putting pressure on it's job market) simply to keep their families from starving and dying. It can learn about an economy that is only just beginnning to recover from over a decade of brutal leadership, because one man who knew his time was up in power did not want to go gracefully. That is all it is about. That is what SA can learn from Zim - the evil that absolute power perpetuates.

    Sure take your land that white people didn't bring with us but we will take all our money, education and technology with us. Cut you off completly from any "western help" and watch you try reinvent the wheel

    Lock him up and throw away the key already. Sick of this imbecile consistently spewing trash as soon as he opens his mouth.

  • sidney.gilroy - 2012-10-15 10:44

    Well at least someone is making an economic upturn in Zimbabwe...KFC Drive-thru must have been awfully busy during his visit. Forward Malema Forward ! You and only you can deliver us from the ANC. And in turn yourselves.

  • bdanney - 2012-10-15 10:45

    What is it with corrupt and useless African leaders that they uplift and stand in awe of the worst scum Africa has ever produced. The amount of African's that have died at the hands of vile African leaders far out number the amount of African's who died over a century ago at the hands of Europeans. Never in the history of the World have a race been so devided, and bitter over the events of the past. Get the f*&k over it! Clinging to the past is preventing you from shaping the future you deserve. I think African's have all played the victim long enough now, and as a result you are now your biggest repressors. No one is going to hand you life on a silver platter. Julius you are of no use to African's. You are the biggest threat to African's than apartheid or European's ever were. If you ever came to power, much like Zimbabwe everyone would be worse off and not better off. Malema's ONLY interest in Africa is to exploit the poor in order to gain for himself. This is the African recipe, it has been used before and once again Malema is using it to advance himself. Make no mistake Malema is only interested in ONE THING and that is Malema. Ignore this warning at your own peril.

  • drizzt.pirie - 2012-10-15 10:45

    Malema is partially right but before the colonialists arrived Africa did not know what mining is, what crop rotation is, what irrigation is, what brick houses are, what cars are, what industry is, what infrastructure is, what ships are, what electricity is, what flight is, what roads are, what education is, what a city is, I could write an encyclopaedia on everything that would never exist in Africa if it wasn't for Imperialism. Funny how all the luxuries people live with now are from these "imperialists". Malema get over it you racist pig. Africa is for all people that live in Africa and want to makes it great, the only reason Malema focuses on race is because he is too dumb to think of any other solution. He wants everything given to him because he doesn't know what honest work is. Any person who follows Malema is just ignorant, uneducated, narrow minded and frankly just plain stupid.

      DrGonzoSA - 2012-10-15 10:58

      Exactly

      james.hurley.1401 - 2012-10-15 11:18

      @drizzt while I get what you're saying (and think Malema should be a laughing stock), your argument about a prehistoric Africa where there was no technology doesn't really hold water. The fact is, this technologization was foisted on indigenous people from colonization onwards, thus they had no choice but to alter their modes of social organization. People were brought into 'developed' cities as labour, and were denied the opportunity to compete fairly within these developments, thus I hardly think that technology has been a benevolent 'gift' to Africa, given the complex circumstances of its arrival. The fact is that it is here, and it is hypocritical for the black elite to carp on about imperialism when they are the new forces of imperialism, who are still oppressing the majority through wasteful public expenditure.

  • francois.delange - 2012-10-15 10:47

    Malema is right, we can learn a lot from ZIM: HOW NOT TO DO THINGS AND HOW CAN YOUR CITIZENS SPONGE AND MAKE A LIVING FROM YOUR NEIGHBOURS.

  • james.bondiski - 2012-10-15 10:47

    Malema .you dickhead!!!

      diana.gill.18 - 2012-10-15 11:02

      No he is just a condom.

      JamesMWood - 2012-10-15 11:33

      He shouldve been the contents of the condom, and to think, out of millions he was the fastedt swimmer in dads sack! That's scary, imagine his own offspring

  • irma.white.9 - 2012-10-15 10:47

    Two questions, Malema and Malema fans: if Zimbabwe is so great, why are there so many of them living here? And if Zimbabwe is so great, why aren't YOU there living the dream?

      Andrew - 2012-10-15 11:18

      @happyness.Zimbabwe is bad because it has been under unjustifiable economic and political sanctions for more than 10 yrs.

      Andrew - 2012-10-15 11:19

      @happyness.Zimbabwe is bad because it has been under unjustifiable economic and political sanctions for more than 10 yrs.

      irma.white.9 - 2012-10-15 11:49

      Andrew, what are you on about? Unjustifiable economic sanctions????! Have you ever looked at the history of Zimbabwe? What has Mugabe done with all the hundrends of millions and billions of rands and dollars in loans other countries have given them? His wife is shopping all over the world, he goes to Singapore to get the best medical treatment while his citizens are fleeing to other countries and killing lions for food because there is nothing there. There are NO unfair sanctions against Zimbabwe, they have been helped times and time again yet Mugabe is such a tw@t that he is spending the money on his own $hit.

      justin.sly.77 - 2012-10-15 17:01

      @Andrew LOL! That's a good one! So it is the sanctions that absolutely destroyed the agricultural output of the country? Not the hundreds of low life morons beating men, woman and children off of their farms? Oh my, has the whole world got it wrong! It is the sanctions that took one of the most prosperous food producing African nations and turned it into a dust bowl? Gee Andrew, thanks for enlightening me and my fellow (the rest of the world) imperialist, capitalist irish coffee people! Shame, this stupid cannot come naturally.

  • Andile Zide - 2012-10-15 10:48

    stupid u guys, what malema is saying is true, lol

      bergie.sean - 2012-10-15 10:54

      Malema must first get circumsized before we can take him seriously. He is still a boy.

      Watkykj - 2012-10-15 11:11

      I nearly got annoyed with your statement, but decided that it should be pitty I felt for you......because only someone with an extremely low IQ can have an opinion like you...
