Cope Youth Movement notes the expulsion of Malema

04 May 2012, 14:06

The Congress of the People Youth Movement notes the expulsion of the ‘used’ Malema from the ANC.

The Congress of the People Youth Movement notes the expulsion of former ANCYL president Julius Malema from the ruling party and we urge all South African to respect the internal disciplinary processes of the ANC so as we as South Africa can move on.

In the past few years the South Africa youth had endured various types of tormenting politics from Julius Malema, side tracking the attentions that should have been given to important issues affecting the youth of South Africa. Issues like Youth unemployment, low education standards, escalating rate of teenage pregnancies, political and cultural development and many other issues affecting the youth of this country.

While Malema might have singled out as the sole person responsible for the chaos and bring the Anc into disrepute, the Congress of the People Youth Movement also notes that Malema had fallen victim of a system that is killing a lot of young people in the African continent. Malema fell prey to political prostitution where he was used to further other people’s political ambitions as it was the case when he stood and said ‘I will kill for Zuma’ against the then president of the ANC Thabo Mbeki. Today it is the same Zuma who persecute and condemned a young man who should have been guided by the elder leaders such as Zuma. The same but lesser prevalence happened to the then ANCYL president Peter Mokaba who ensured that President Thabo Mbeki is elected as the President of the ANC in 1997 in Mafikeng. He, Mokaba, was later isolated by Mbeki and was left in political destitute. The harsher circumstances are seen in some parts of Africa where young people are used as soldiers to fight a war they know nothing about and young women from early age are kidnapped and used as sex slaves and forced wives for these older people. The Congress of the People urges young people to be vigilant and conscious and not allow to be used to drive political wars of the older generations and further their selfish ambitions.

Without any doubt, Julius and his ANCYL leadership have had a bad influence on the youth of South Africa and it is time that we move from the bad dream we had with him and his team and forge ahead into building the youth of this country into respectable statesmen and stateswomen of this beautiful land. We as the Congress of the People Youth Movement Would like to ensure that we focus all our energies into building a healthier improved future for all the People of South Africa.
