Jacob Zuma and ANC under estimated Julias Malema

19 March 2014, 07:30

Julias Malema  was described by Jacob Zuma and the former Premier of Limpopo Province  Cassel Mathale as the "future leader" of South Africa. Some would say that he was identified as threat to Jacom Zuma’s second term of office, which eventually led to his expulsion from ANC.

Jacom Zuma was re-elected at ANC’s conference held in Mangaung which cemented the possibility of Juliams Malema’s return to ANC as history, the politcal organisation that he has served from an early age.

Political scientist Dirk Kotze described Julias Malema’s expulsion  as:  "I think it will be the end of his political career, at least for the foreseeable future,".

After several attempts, to return to ANC, Julias Malema and his company decided to form a political party called Economic Freedom Fighters, EFF as it is widely known.

 EFF showed massive growth in membership during the past couple of months. EFF was born to continue with the ideas which Julias Malema and former ANC youth league members stood for.

The party was officially launched in October 2013. Since its launch EFF showed massive growth in membership during the past couple of months. In January 2014 the Economic Freedom Fighters' membership was announced as over 400,000.

The party continues to grow in membership, this can be witness by the recent numbers that turned out at its elections manifesto launch in Tembisa. It is estimated that more than 50 000 people attended the elections manifesto launch.  Political analysts say that ANC goes into 2014 elections as the most weakened ANC of all times. Reports also say that the death of the former president Nelson Mandela added the blow to the ANC’s 2014 national elections campaign.

In the previous elections, ANC had also breakaway COPE which also drew away some support from the ruling party. It had also DA to worry about, but in 2014 elections, there’s new kid on the block EFF, adding more sleepless nights to the African National Congress.

If the matter of Julias Malema was handled differently then, ANC would not have been worrying as it is believed that they are, going to the 2014 elections.  The ANC rule until the return of Jesus, it’s going to be tested in 2014 elections.

This is laughable as on many occasions Zuma made a clear statement that is does not owe any money. Is this another matter that this government is sweeping under the carpet. Read more...

The problem is that Zumas' stench of corruption has tainted all those who surround him. Their consistent support of him through scandal after scandal has cast them (and ultimately the ANC) in the same light. Read more...
