Malema said "they will need sleeping tablets to sleep"

30 January 2014, 10:04

Malema said “they will need sleeping tablets to sleep. Helen’s mind came to halt and think of colouring her DA with M Ramphele (what a shape DA is trying to get now?)

DA leader Helen Zille announced on Tuesday that Ramphele would join the DA and stand as its presidential candidate in the upcoming general election.

Ramphele started a "political platform" about a year ago, and then launched the party last June.

"We don't believe a person who failed to even give a sustainable life to her newly born party will make any impact on the lives of blacks other than to entrench [the] backwardness of the DA," said Baleni. Of NUM.

A political analyst has described the agreement between the Democratic Alliance and Agang SA as an "error of judgement on the DA's part". But listen to Zille who said she had "badgered" Ramphele for years to front the DA's drive to expand its power base because the outspoken academic had the credibility that she herself lacked to persuade voters that it was a party for all races.

Ramphele predicted that the elections, expected to be held in late April or May, would prove a watershed moment in South African politics as former president Nelson Mandela's death had freed many from a moral obligation they had felt to vote for the ANC.

Young people could now vote for another party because they would no longer feel they were "betraying" him, and the booing of President Jacob Zuma at Mandela's memorial service last month had shown it could no longer ride on his legacy.

The ANC would not reveal its candidate list for Parliament and the provinces before the election date was announced, the party said on Tuesday.

"Once that date is announced you are given a limited period to submit your list," secretary general Gwede Mantashe told reporters in Johannesburg. Former president Thabo Mbeki, seen as one of President Jacob Zuma’s political rivals, was nominated by the Gauteng branch of the party as a candidate for Parliament.

What is this? Listen to Mantashe:  saying “There'll be nothing wrong with president Zuma after retiring becoming a councillor in Nkandla .

The so called big party in South Africa are laughing stock. Any-one who have support to this party must be ashamed. They lost touch of politics and its strategy.

Wait and listen to Malema talking to voters at Tembisa 22 February 2014. Let me tell you one thing about manifesto, children’s rights will be limited so will never go wild as they do now. If you still under mine others because of race or skin, you have no place in South Africa. Let me pause here for now.

Allan Napier and Bernard Rhodes, the value of our rand is a shame. You know most of factories buy machines from Germany even parts are from overseas. You get quote of part now, but when they deliver to South Africa price have to go up as Rand keep on fluctuating and is bad for each business. Mark Black and Wayne Piper, let’s not use strong words, some people are sensitive. Ugogo Showerhead, military experience is unneeded as South Africa is a peaceful country.

To those who like to call people (EFF leader and supporter) idiots, I can say to you are blessed as you are brilliant and wise to judge others. Hope you know what you mean. But wait and see how many of us stupid and idiot people to vote for EFF and takeover from ANC. Thanks to GOD, we know our struggle.
