Dear Julias Malema.
I'm a supporter of the economical Freedom Fighters, and I have this message for you. I’m actually glad that you were expelled from the ANC, I’m glad Ramapohosa sealed your faith before the Marikana Issue happened. He had to do it, if you nationalized Lonmin mine, he had 9% to lose, and so do many other political leaders. You had to be stopped. I’m Glad Zuma and Gwede Mantashe connived to get you in the wilderness, and that Hanekom didn’t like your guts, and sealed your faith. Off cause they had to get rid of you, Mantashe has his position to protect, which comes with all the political powers he needs to enrich himself. How dare you want to take away his bread and butter, and pass it to Fikile.
The reason I’m glad all of that happened to you is not that I don’t like you or have something against you. I’m glad that this events that happened to you will only make you a batter man. Being in the political wilderness can only serve to sharpen your survival skill, and instill discipline in you. It will make you more compassionate to the sorrows of the masses so that when you finally come back to lead. You will understand how to lead, and that the people need. You will lead them to the Economical Freedom they so desperately need. That’s your calling. You see, I believe a leader must go through the fire in order for him to come out a better leader. Same thing as gold, that has to be burned in order to get the shine out of it. Even Jesus went in the desert to prepare for his duty, which was to save the lost Israelis
So, don’t despair, what happened to you, is the cross you had to carry, your salvation should be near. Many believe in the political and social issues you advocate, and I know that nothing will stop the will of the people, the seed for liberation has been planted and you played your part. The people hope sanity will prevail in Mangaung, and you will be given the chance to come back and take up your vacant seat as Chief Commander of the Economical Freedom Fighters. Because, no one else has the balls, and guts to stand up for the poor, and risk being thrown in the wilderness the way you were. I know you have have created yourself many enemies, but if you didn't have any, your struggle would have been in vain as it would mean you fighting for what does not exist. The number of the enemies you have translates to the many people who stands to lose if the Freedom Charter would be implemented. But dont despair, that numbe is nothing compared to over 70% of the poor masses who are left in the cold by the previous regime, and the current regime.
But Mangaung will not be the end, No revolution comes with a sellby date. , It will continue way beyond Mangaung until the will of the people prevails.
