If I was Helen Zille I would call my DA leadership in anticipation of the celebration of what is about to happen with Julius Malema’s disciplinary hearing.
• Whether the ANC suspend or expel Malema, either way the ANC will be divided:
We called upon Jacob Zuma to act on Malema in 2009 already and nothing was done. Malema has grown the ANCYL to almost being independent of the ANC and I wouldn’t bet against the ANCYL standing for elections in 2014 as a standalone party, hence Zille’s gain.
Thanks to Malema and Zuma - the two men who offered our country zilch!
• Say the ANC leadership plays down the anarchy of events unfolding around Luthuli House and decide to let the issue die slowly by not suspending and expelling Malema:
Then there is no guarantee that the ANCYL will ever work under the ANC directive and this would just serve to postpone the more ugly riots- hence bless whoever will the country’s president after 2014.
• Say the ANC leadership deal with Malema by suspending him or expel him from the ANC movement:
This one is no brainer. Malema and his friends will go start another COPE hence giving more percent of votes to Zille’s DA.
And I bet you they will be fighting for positions long way before the 2014 national elections. I hope the ANC leadership can learn from this statement that no matter how they deal with Malema, he will lose.
• The most sad part: Say Malema gets what he wants:
Then what? Does anybody know what exactly does Malema wants? Why was he ignored to carry on when very few people understand exactly what he wants?
Will Malema be able to solve the country’s unemployment problem? How?
Will Malema be able to deal with and stop corruption which squanders billions of public funds? How and with what resources?
Who (other his youth league supporters) is behind Malema’s stubbornness? We know very respectable figures in the ANC NEC that are behind Malema’s uncalculated outbursts. We know them, and the ANC disciplinary hearing team knows them as well.
Will the international investors invest in Malema’s led country?
Will Malema work with people who have knowledge of industry or will he work with his cronies? If he would work with professionals, why did he not yet seek their advice?
There are just far too many consequences of the case against Malema due to the expectations that have been created by ordinary citizens and to try and do something diplomatic will simply aggravate the problem. The best way to deal with the ANCYL chaos is to shut down Malema and his co-leaders.
Malema has made it easy for the ANC to deal with his matter.
They simply give him what he has wanted along; which is to expel him so he can go form his own political party instead of messing and meddling with the ANC legacy.
