Warrant of Arrest for Malema?

22 September 2012, 13:31


Julius Malema received a warrant of arrest. The charges are on matters of fraudulent transactions concerning sizable amounts of money.

I just heard this over the 18:00 news on the Afrikaans radio station, “Radio Sonder Grense” (English is NOT my first language. But, as Sandika Kishoorilall admits, so do I. I never made it an issue of this until some atheists picked it up from my peculiar way of writing. Instead of being problematic, I got the impression that if your reply to statements are not convincing you attempt to find some flaw in some side issue. Some peculiar characteristic of the use of language may be useful. So, with Sandika, I may ask: “English in SA... If people are comfortable with the way they speak, and we are able to comprehend when they do, shouldn’t we let them be?”)

So, back to the discussion of Julius Malema’s trouble. Or is it trouble for Malema? It is obvious that Malema as a leader figure in the ANC had access to contracts and under the table dealings of large projects. But, just as the leadership in the ANC are sometimes very sparing with their mutual cement of cohesiveness, so Malema’s cementing of bridges and dams were perhaps rechanneled and the heavy rains exposed this.

Now, this man became a source of irritation and his double dealings are now most conveniently the means by which the ANC leadership hopes to take care of him.

But just how well are the cohesion between the different party sections? It is no secret that Malema has strong support among members of the upper structures of the ruling party. Mr. Thabo Mbeki hoped for a third term, but was relocated even before his second term in office was completed.

Is Mr. Zuma’s position guaranteed? He has enemies and he has questions of covert interests in the arms deal scandal that may just happen to crop upb whem Malema’s case is made public. So far he could rely upon his power basis to manipulate the processes of investigating the barrage of accusations. Are these still intact?

He was himself a victim of removal from office by his predecessor, Mr. Mbeki. And it was from being outside of his former office that he could lead the process that led to Mbeki’s fall.

There are just far too many variables that no one could all foresee and the final outcome will remain uncertain while perhaps more key figures will become involved. It may even be so that some third interest party may emerge to take the lead.

Mr. Zuma may discover that his move against Malema may just backfire and we may just discover many hidden truths concerning Zuma and some of the global interests surfacing. A political fire was kindled using financial issues. Some links between the two former friends may require the asking of questions that involve the one who hopes to get this kid out of the public eye.

And, as for us, the fundamental members of the public? How will these super powers make use of us to make their moves to manipulate the No, one thing is certain; Malema is not marginalized at all. He is now back at centre stage without the concert programmes making provision for this. It is far easier to forecast the weather of our globally warming earth amidst the mush longer and colder winters to support this claim.
