ANC must deal with Malema and friends

04 April 2012, 08:27

It has been long since the debate about respecting of elders came into being, fortunately it came along with the whole issue of the behavior of the youth league and the so called insults to seniors  in the ANC , one must indeed that analyze  the question of respect from the African roots and  the way in which people were brought up in a very complicated societies with which we leave live in. we grow up in environments within we meet all sorts of people , to a particular extent we end up meeting individuals that might be detrimental to our growth and downfalls .the issue of respect not only to the elders it’s a very important issue that needs to be reflected , they are say in Pedi Mahlaku a Matala a e thekga ka a mafsa , literally meaning elders rely on young people ,because of their energy and their ability to learn quick and fast . The question we need to ask ourselves from here is whether the ANCYL is disrespectful to elders in the movement. While others argue all this things that are happening now , whatever the youth league say is something that was once said  during the  tenure  of the  former President  Thabo Mbeki  and many people said nothing  including  President Jacob Zuma , I think it’s naïve and nonsensical  to give a title to lack of discipline and anarchy , because it happened some time ago , in order to  understand this one knows that two wrongs never made a right , they remain being a wrong and everyone who does not want himself to be in the right  will have to get the marching orders .the debate of  lack of discipline in the ANCYL is a long standing issue , the unfortunate part of it is that the leaders of the Youth League themselves believe in the self taught lies of  being called  king  makers  and that in itself and that have made them to think that they will the oldest liberation movement into ransom. 

The current behavior in the preparatory school of future meaning the ANCYL , if its left  to happen in this manner , it will mean that for the next  fifteen years to come, we must know that ill discipline will then be the order of the day, one must however applaud the leadership of the ANC for saying that enough is enough , there is in no way that in any house a parent can allow the behavior that seems to have ravaged the African National  Congress. They made sure that they give them a riot act in the organization for the first time in 100 years wherein, leaders of the ANCYL behaves in this manner,Malema and friends must now swallow the medicine which they made people like , Rubben Mahlaloga, Lehlogonolo Masoga  and many other former leaders of the Youth league who could not bear to sit with this ill disciplined anarchachic characters that we see in this political discourse

The ANC needs to redeem itself so that anyone who will attempt to have a malema behavior will  know that the movement is not a kinder garden , its serious movement which wants to address critical issues that affects our people, no one  must disturb the ANC in its per suit to better the lives of our people
