Malema, the ANC warrior

14 September 2012, 08:36

Julius Malema the warrior.

The irony of Malema brought back memories of one of those ‘wow’ moments of my life.

As a young policeman I became a midwife by opportunity.  A very large and heavily pregnant woman arrived at the station asking us to phone an ambulance.  She explained that the father was drunk and cannot assist her.  I made her comfortable and phoned.  Shortly afterwards she announced that "die kend hy hom, jy moet hom vang". (The child is to be born, you must help.)

With her experience and guidance I did the necessary.  When I stood kneeling with a bloodied human being in my hands, screaming profusely, my training kicked in and the emphasis of the instructor brought me to the reality of the situation.  I had to severe the umbilical cord in such a way that the two humans do not bleed to death.  I was successful and hand over the mother and newborn son to the ambulance staff.

The proud mother brought the young boy on a regular basis to the station, just to show ‘dies kend sy pa!’ (The child’s father)  I always felt very proud!

Lately the thought came up that that boy might be Julius Malema.

Approximately two years ago I wrote the following in one of my newsletters.

‘Our friend Julius Malema, the president of the ANC youth league is an interesting character.  He is constantly ridiculed by the media for his stupid remarks and antics.  What is important is to view him for who he is, taking in account where he came from. 

He comes from a rural environment and did not have the luxury of being well educated.  He was however promoted by his pears to that of their president, which is an achievement on its own.  He makes stupid and un-called for remarks.  He is however prepared to stand by what he believes in, whether it is incorrect or unpopular. 

He is further prepared to confront those people and institutions that he disagrees with and is capable of changing his mind.  He went to meet and discussed issues with the right wing Afrikaner youth at Orania and came out smiling with them. 

He had an appointment with the rector of the Free State University after his movement had publicly encouraged their members to kill the Rector because he gave leniency to the four racist Reitz students.  After his meeting with the Rector, Julius came out to address the black students, who was waiting for his comment.  By surprise, he as leader of the ANC Youth League, instructed them to support the Rector.  I therefore tend to agree with JZ that Julius has leadership potential!!  He just needs a lot of time and experience, which he seems to be keen to acquire.  The rector commented that he had a very interesting interview with Malema and was surprised with this young man that can grasp the intricacies of a very complex issue.”

A few months later I wrote the following:

“Our friend Julius Malema’s true colors came through and he is just as corrupt as the rest.  He is still denying it!!!  In a previous letter I looked at the leadership potential of Julius.  Unfortunately that potential was just that and was short lived. 

The reason behind that is simple.  He stated that he never had a father (maybe that was me!) and that he adopted the ANC as his father and he adores the ANC.  What has happened was that he followed the examples set by his father, that of avarice and greed, of entitlement.  That made a monster out of him and he is now branded as the Mafioso of the Limpopo Province.”

Not surprisingly Julius became a warrior!

I think what has unfolded over the last year or so is the outcome of an ANC strategy that got out of hand.  I do not think that they can correct it.

I can remember during the early 80’s I observed how Lenox Sebe, the then president of the Ciskei summarily dismissed a ‘racist’ doctor at one of the hospitals based on some rumors.  When asked why he does not appoint a commission of enquiry to get to the truth, he commented as follows.

‘In the Xhosa culture there is a saying that you do not hunt with the dogs in the bushes.  You may get bitten and have blood on your hands.  You train your dogs.  You make them very hungry.  You then let them loose on the pray that you want to kill.  You then just stood on the hillside, watching the hunt. Just whistle to the dogs and direct them.’

Now Robert Mugabe follows that strategy in the true Nguni tradition.  His war heroes started to bark at the gates of the white farmers.  They broke down the fences and pound on the white land.  Mugabe’s comment was that they were hungry for land and he can’t do anything about it.  The rest is history and at the moment it is the turn of the mines and the banks.  It is now unstoppable.

In South Africa the ANC decided that the mines, the white farms and the banks should come under the control of the ANC to be re-distributed to the loyal cadres.  It however calls for a proper strategy of cunning, intimidation and the weakening of the position and powers of the present owners, to such an extend that they should eventually succumbed as in Zimbabwe and just hand it over.  The ANC of course deny such a thought as ridiculous!

In order to succeed in such a strategy without being seen of doing it and in case it back fired to be able to deny that it was their policy, the ANC and specific Jacob Zuma needed a pack of dogs to do the barking and biting in such a way that they are not injured nor have blood on their hands.  That’s the Nguni way.

They then trained Julius and his pack. 

They made them hungry and nodded in the direction of the mines.  So when Julius started to bark at the gates of the mining houses, our Jacob smugly commented that Julius is just a young man and is learning.  “I am not going to restrict him.  You go and engage him,” he told the complainants and Jacob just smiled!

Let’s not call Julius a dog, it is derogatory.  Let’s call him a Zulu warrior.  So this warrior became very strong and vicious.  Unfortunately he starts barking at his master.  He actually tickled his handler’s spear.  The handler then got angry and expelled his warrior.

I want to believe that a large section of the ANC brainpower has reached the level of development that they realize it is not in the interest of South Africa to nationalize any of those national assets.

Unfortunately the warriors are now loose cannons and do not understand that realization.  They are still programmed and blinded by the ANC policy.  They are in motion and have gathered serious momentum through the frustrations and anger of the population.  The unemployment and poverty, non-service delivery, which is the unintended consequence of the ANC policies over the past 18 years, just add fuel to that fire of discontent.  It is then so easy to join in the hunt.

It is so easy for the warriors to recruit their minds into the original philosophy of the ANC that these assets must be seized. 

These warriors are now at the gates of the mine houses, dictating to the owners what should be done.

Only time will tell the rest of our history.
