Failure to stop ANCYL’s violence is DA Gain

2011-09-01 11:03

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.

    The same thing was said when Buntu Holomisa was fired, similar sentiments were uttered when Mbeki was fired....Comrade Malema will not be fired, but come next year at Mangagung Jacob Zuma will be fired and Kgalema Motlanthi will become the president of the ANC and Tokyo Sexwale his deputy president and Fikile Mbalula the ANC secretary general....The movement will once again gain a sweeping 2 third majority.

      Stryder - 2011-09-01 11:40

      Genus Pan. LOL!!!

      Dougalan - 2011-09-01 12:51

      No panafricanis, a two thirds majority the ANC will never ever see again. They didn't get it at the last election, and since then there has been one horror story after another of ANC mismanagement and corruption. Even the most brainwashed are now starting to realise that the ANC steals from the poor and simply doesn't deliver. Eventually, people start thinking 'What's in it for me?" - and see the W. Cape delivering the goods, while ANC municipalities fall apart. The ANC is not a shadow of the party it once was.

      DW - 2011-09-01 12:54

      Kgalema Mothlante was vice president after Mbeki resigned. If you think he is so wonderful, why didnt you just keep him there? Why did you vote for Zuma, the one the ANCYL is now call a corrupt rapist? He hasnt done anything different since he became president. All these allegations were there BEFORE you voted him into power. And when we pointed them out and said he was an unsuitable president you called us racists. So if you were willing to vote him in then, what makes you think your judgement is so good now that you will vote another corrupt idiot like Malema in? Dont you realise that he is exactly the same as Zuma? He is only in it for himself and his buddies. Remember the promises Zuma made to you before you booted Mbeki out? Remember the reasons you voted him in? Now you want him out so you can put the next corrupt idiot in. Quite honestly I dont think Kgalema is such a bad idea, but you think you will manipulate him until Juju is ready to take over the reins? You forget so easily how they ignore you once they are in power. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It is time you grew up and realised what democracy is about. It is not about putting leaders in who make you promises only to break them the minute the ink is dry. Open your eyes. The power is in your hands.

      Nipcat - 2011-09-01 13:16

      The people will not accept the mismanagement and corruption of the anc forever. They can't possible be that stupid.

      Tokkel Loshi - 2011-09-01 13:19

      and then you woke up with your open hand begging ?

      MuntuzaB - 2011-09-01 14:24

      When was the last time the "movement" obtained a two-thirds again? During Mbeki's time a number of years ago. Don't hold your breath. Malema is in pole position to destroy the cancer called the ANC right from within

      Acid24 - 2011-09-01 23:44

      @MuntuzaB: The only thing Malema is destroying is our country's economic welfare and investor attraction. Believe you me; when all is said and done, and your nationalisation and land grabs have been fulfilled; you will suffer like never before. You do not know a thing about the economy and where all the tax money comes from if you support these simple-minded ideologies. It is a pity the education system is in such a state of chaos. Otherwise more black citizens would have been able to see what would happen to SA if the state takes over the mines and farms get handed to people who do not use it to produce food for the millions of people in our country.

      Charlie - 2011-09-04 10:53

      ust like every other African country, you get given a fully functioning economy / infrastructure / healthcare / security and you manage to destroy it! Well done...its taken you less than 20 years to Fk-up the strongest country in Africa! You just don't get it, the DA is the last hope for this country, you need the DA to SHOW you how to govern, you need a healthy oposition to keep your dishonest & corrupt "leaders" in check. Get over your undecisive-selves and stop fighting for who's going to lead in the anc because you all just as crap & corrupt as the next one in line...the sooner you realize you need the DA to lead with GOOD GOVERNANCE and no corruption, the better for ALL that live in our country!

  • Zizo Snr - 2011-09-01 11:13

    Another poor articulated article. Your analysis are short of facts, it is all perception. Fact: Whether Malema is expelled or not, DA will never gain enough votes to lead the country. The ANC will come out with more votes after this dust has settled, and it should all be forgotten under three months.

      Man.Dumisani - 2011-09-01 11:19

      This is SA politics. It will NEVER be forgotten. All opposition parties will use this ANC joke as ammunication for future elections. The ANCYL is bad for SA and we all know it. It's good for our democracy to have strong opposition parties. Very good !!! We all want to live in peace, not under some radical, racist ANCYL government. No man!

      karlkat - 2011-09-01 12:22

      It is good to see more black South African's opposing the ANC and that there is live outside the ANC

      Zizo Snr - 2011-09-01 12:39

      "Racist ANCYL government", I bet you never met the real racists or you are just a front. Oppositions parties tried the tactic, they failed. Zille went as far as flying a chopper with negative remarks about Zuma but it did not work. We will not force a rainbow nation to white people, they have to help themselves. If you want to see DA win, start by transforming your party and the WC cabinet.

      Nipcat - 2011-09-01 13:19

      @Manduminsani The anc and its youth league are already a joke. Who ever heard of someone willing to "kill for zuma" and within two years wants to "kill zuma"?

      Nipcat - 2011-09-01 13:21

      @Zizo Snr Yes, Zille did that, but definitely at a wrong time when Zuma was at the height of his popularity. If she should do it now she'd get much more support, even from Juliboy, by the sounds of it.

      Nkalakatha - 2011-09-01 13:24

  • Mike@CapeT - 2011-09-01 11:29

    I tend to agree with this article. If Malema is expelled, that is likely to alienate a great percentage of the youth league (rabble)....possibly enough to affect any ANC majority win in a future election. I am not saying it will put the DA into power, that will definitely not happen, but, perhaps it will make the DA a much stronger official opposition.....making them a force to be reckoned with in Parliament. It is also likely to ensure that the ANC do not threaten the 66% ceiling. The downside is, that the Malema faction could become dangerous 'kingmakers', depending on how seriously the ANC would want to distance themselves from that faction. Whatever the case, ANCYL have been allowed to get away with 'murder' for far too long and the ANC have only themselves to blame.

      Mindtone - 2011-09-01 12:11

      Interesting speculation. The fact of the matter is that the ANC has in the past had 66% majority and more. In spite of this the ANC has never thus far abused that majority by amending the Constitution willy-nilly. Any political party will use its majority to push through its policies. The ANC has always been willing to listen to other views including the DA but it is not compelled to adopt those views even though it may and does on occasion albeit in the form of "horsetrading", common practice in democracies. Under our system the ANC only needs a simple majority for certain laws except in the case of amendments to the Constitution. With the majority the ANC currently has it only has to convince a small opposition party to vote to achieve 66%. I do agree with your view on the ANCYL but just to say that it's never too late. The ANC will have to deal with the consequences. In conclusion, a country in transition and transformation with the enormous disparities that we have, well, too put it mildly - we will see tough times. Our greatest enemies are ourselves.

  • SolomonMagalefa - 2011-09-01 11:38

    Agreed that it's a now win situation (whichever way you look at it), if that's your point @Z. I am intrigued that the DA have been quite silent in commentating on the events that have unfolded this week - perhaps a very strategic and clever move on their part. We shall have to wait until tomorrow to see if Malema's lawyers will be successful in their attempts to have the case thrown out. If it is thrown out, the ANC leadership will be between a rock and a hard place... fascinating stuff.

      Man.Dumisani - 2011-09-01 11:45

      Yebo, interesting times. Hopefully what's best for democratic South Africa wins, at the end of the day. Racist and militant-style regimes are not what Africa needs anymore, those days are over. We want peace and democracy where all are embraced under Mandel's vision.

      Acacia39 - 2011-09-01 11:52

      Good point Solomon...Interesting times indeed!

      Mike or Mpho - 2011-09-01 12:05

      Good point, but the sad reality is that nothing will come of these proceedings. It will be dismissed on a technicality and the same $h!t will carry on. if only

      ands - 2011-09-01 12:09

      @Solomon and all..... Why are there lawyers involved? Why is the expelling of a member a " legal case". They are considering , I suppose expelling him for saying things against their movement's constitutuion and mandate. If I misbehave at a club or anywhere a membership is required , then that facility is surely able to expel misbehaveing members at their discretion? Malema is not a minister but a member of the ANC. Am I missing something here?

      Tolerant - 2011-09-01 12:54

      Malema is making a mistake by dragging out the hearings. Even if it is now thrown out the ANC will just start new hearings procedures. He has made too many enemies in the ANC.

      Daemos1 - 2011-09-01 13:20

      I think the DA have attacked other parties for cheap politicking in the past so they have to ensure they practice what they preach. Anyway, there's really nothing to be said is there?

      MuntuzaB - 2011-09-01 14:25

    It is easier sd than done.Its a pitty that you notice this things so late.Where were you when the Mbalula and Malema led ANCYL insulted the former president whith his then 92yrs old mother's private parts at the reburial of Moses Mabhida in 2008,Where were you when Malema was insulting former MEC for education in Gauteng Ignatius Jacobs in 2002 during the students (cosas) chaotic protests,where were you when Malema insulted Naledi Pandor,Trevor Manuel etc

  • clx - 2011-09-01 12:07

    i agree him starting his own party will improve the health of our democracy. the opposition , including malema's party, will close the gap to the ruling party allowing for a more balanced government. Malema will most certainly take limpopo, and it will become a shining (rather not so shiny) example of exactly how he may govern the country. an eye opener maybe? the DA wins all the way

    After reading some of the comments here, i think that the magician guy has issues, no one has mentioned that white ppl are better or needed or anything. the fact is white ppl even tho a minority did some good things for SA, its now our turn to do the same - we cant keep taking and wanting -* its about time we start working for things also. You will be treated like a bunch of idiots by your leaders becoz of your failure to learn! free handouts will only get you so far, besides its time we take responsibility and stop blaming "the white man" there are a lot of ppl that are now blaming "the black man" for all the wrong thats happening. No government is perfect but some of them do have the right ideas - its a pity ANC has lost site of what they were fighting for and are now a bunch of horny greedy, self serving ppl that dont seem to care that there followers are starving and suffering....

    The ANC was not the only liberation movement but yet it has the most support, even now after 17 years of failure, miss administration, corruption, bad service delivery the list goes on an on, yet the masses still vote for the ANC please explain this to me so I may understand. The respect South Africa while Nelson Mandela was president was excellent and the ANC Leadership in the last 13 years have managed to wipe that respect out. Nothing will come of this hearing and Malema is going to get worse with his racism. I give Malema less than a week before he is standing on his soap box shout out racist remarks and policies.

      Aaarrrgghhh - 2011-09-01 12:43

  • Mark Haupt - 2011-09-01 12:48

    Think the author articulated what many think, think also that the ANC have got themselves between a rock & a hard place, squarely between the (unemployed and desperate) youth & the establishment. Malema is also only saying what the youth are thinking, time the ANC started listening, and acting.

    The ANC has mutated to something unrecognisable to most of the founding membership and I am certain they and their ancestors are extremely unhappy indeed. Consider if the 'ANC name' were to magically disappear and the 'party' had to start again from ground zero and sell themselves to the electorate based on their visions and plans I doubt whether the quality of their leadership would win them many friends.

    I think that if Malema was to be forced out and therefore be in a political vacuum he will soon enough form his own party and continue creating mayhem. Perhaps at that stage it would be wise for all other political parties to review their animosities and band together to rid us of the scourge.

  • sloppycowtits - 2011-09-01 14:58

    Malema has a lot on his plate, win or lose on the ANC disciplinary hearings, he still has to face the corruption charges that are bearing down on him. Zuma & Motlanthe have no choice but to take Malema out of the picture as he has become a thorn to themselves in the upcoming elections.

  • Delano - 2011-09-01 14:59

    TheMagician..."mor than any white party"? You're a retart man. Just like Malema. Look further than colour and work together. Yes fine, I'm white, afrikaans and a male, so I do have my views, just like any other person, about other races and cultures, but do you know what? I'm willing to work togehter.You guys must seriously get over you crap and move on from the past. For how long will you be blaming apartheid. Why do you get that there are so many other blacks working and being successful? I'll tell you the secret, some of them, again just like many white people are corrupt, BUT many of have studied and worked hard to get where they are, forgot about excuses and have moved on. THOSE people I have enormous respect for. You should maybe try it out. Besides why should a government be held responsible for child maintanance etc. Take on the parents. They breed to easily, yet work to little man. We'll never get far with that mentality.

  • P-JB - 2011-09-01 15:28

    To: Tolerant, heebeejeebee, SamuelMabena, AntiRacist, DW etc. If you have to stoop so low that you must digging down then you know you have reached rock-bottom, or at least, so I thought until reading the absolute nonsense being uttered by TheMagician. To get back to the opening paragraph of this posting, “Whether the ANC suspends or expels Malema…” It remains to be seen if any justice will be done. It is my belief that there will be some kind of excuse and we will be lucky if Malema gets the usual slap on the wrist. I believe that everything that’s going on at the moment is just a charade and at the end of the day everything will be swept under the carpet. And I don’t believe the Hawks will pursue Malema to the point where he will actually be found guilty of fraud and corruption and be sentenced. Dockets will go missing, witnesses will not testify and SARS won’t do anything either. The perception is that Malema and his ANCYL and ANC buddies are all so intertwined and indebted to each other that each will fight to the death to protect their ill-gotten financial gains. Like dominos, if one falls they may all fall. PS: To all the intelligent people out there. Don't argue with a fool, some people may not know the difference. Don’t even respond to this fool, he thrives on the attention, just ignore his extreme level of stupidity.

  • Barry - 2011-09-01 15:40

    The ANC has to deal with this Malema debacle. He stands infront of Luthuli house and calls for a revolution, who does he want to revolt against? Suarly not against the ANC of witch he is still a member. The country has been liberated from the apartheids regime so it cant be against them. So it stands to reason that he (and his supporters) want to organize and start a revolution against the ruling party (ANC). The only people to gain from this is the oppisition party's

  • C_S - 2011-09-02 06:39

    Here is quite a lot of stupid people here... !!! If Malema starts his own party, it means that some ANC votes will go to Malema. It won't go to the DA or any other party (maybe a small percentage), BUT, say for instance the ANC had a 65% vote, and Malema takes 5%, the ANC stands at 60%, and Malema at 5%, thus, the smaller DA rise in percentage compared to the ANC. Even if the DA gets exactly the same amount of votes. Think about Einstein's relativity theory, now put yourself in the position of the ANC or DA. ANC becomes smaller compared to the DA, DA becomes bigger compared to the ANC, even though the DA stays exactly the same.... Is that so difficult to understand?

ANC have done nothing for the black South Africans, we have the highest crime rate in the world, do you realise India have over 1 Billion People? we have 50 Million, yet there is more crime here, even per captia? How can you vote for a party that hires a Racist to openely speak about killing whites, and yet you say your not a racist, let me tell you something as a White South African, without us you would have nothing, once we leave here you will be left to suffer, and will beg to have us back... Why are all the most dominant countries run by White Gov? Is it ironic that the strongest ecnonmies in the world have white Gov? and yet Africa is left trailing faaaaaaar behind and we have a black Gov? Ironic? I think not

    The government should ban all politically aligned youth leagues. The youth are simply too inexperienced to understand, or have any balanced input. In the late 80's, the predominantly white varsity students that I associated with, had very liberal, and strong ideas regarding the political situation at that time. Many of them joined/supported organisations such as the UDF etc, and were all for a democratic South Africa. Now that we have the democratic South Africa, as per these peoples vision, It is interesting to note, that more than 90 % of these so called liberal thinking academics are no longer living in the South Africa that they lobied for. I see a similar scenario developing with the ANCYL. They will toyi toyi, burn,break etc for change. In 15 years time they will be miserable with the very change they toyi toyid for. Keep them out of politics. Increaase the legal age to voting entitlement to 25 years old.

    Z Mandela, already you teeling us that Malema is not capable of leading the country. He is playing a certain role at this time, so dont judge him according to what his role is at this period. Even President Jacob Zuma was not type of a person who can lead the country according the so called educated people. but now he is leading the country and some of those who were critising him are now cool with him. You must listen to what Malema says, he said his blood is black,green and yellow even if he is expeled. Meaning he will remain an ANC member, he will never form his own party.

    Malema cannot be put at the same level as Holomisa and comrade Thabo. It is for the first time in the history of this country that a Flag has been burnt by supporters of an individual. We are worried about the future of this country if young people continue to behave this way.

    Just like every other African country, you get given a fully functioning economy / infrastructure / healthcare / security and you manage to destroy it! Well done...its taken you less than 20 years to Fk-up the strongest country in Africa! You just don't get it, the DA is the last hope for this country, you need the DA to SHOW you how to govern, you need a healthy oposition to keep your dishonest & corrupt "leaders" in check. Get over your undecisive-selves and stop fighting for who's going to lead in the anc because you all just as crap & corrupt as the next one in line...the sooner you realize you need the DA to lead with GOOD GOVERNANCE and no corruption, the better for ALL that live in our country!
