Zuma vs Malema

05 July 2013, 15:33
Responding to Esethu Hasane's article "Jacob Zuma is 100 times more the man Malema is" I found this article very diverting from Zuma's recent legacy of depravity.

Yes history has chosen Zuma in the ranks of the glorious movement to wage its fight, history has also rewarded Zuma for abiding constancy for more than decades ago. Zuma was 100 times more man Malema is before presidency (Deputy and President respectively) and that was 12 years ago.

We all agree that there is a great dissension between Zuma and Malema which likely favors president Zuma for his credibility and achievements.

Before presidency Zuma was appointed as Member of the Executive Committee (MEC) of Economic Affairs and Tourism for the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government, after stepping aside to allow Thabo Mbeki to run unopposed for deputy presidency. In December 1994, he was elected National Chairperson of the ANC and chairperson of the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal, and was re-elected to the latter position in 1996. Zuma was also a prison mate of Nelson Mandela for 10 years and after coming back from exile Zuma was one of the first ANC leaders to return to South Africa to begin the process of negotiations.

Zuma contributed his life for peace in South Africa and was a loyal cadre of ANC long before Malema was born, which is evident to why 'history' is rewarding Zuma but 'history' made a huge mistake because it thought it was doing justice to its loyal servants.

When Malema was born, Zuma had already started working, then at the age of 14 when Malema was tearing NP (National Party ) posters 'illegally' history saw Malema as a 'new loyal servant' of the 'glorious movement'  which was very evident to why Malema became the youth president then later expelled because 'loyal servants' of history have the same fundamental mind which is 'greed and hatred'

No one thought Zuma would be president 12 years ago thus he was left uninvestigated and unexposed by the 'rivals' ... then later when he came into power he was fully exposed for being involved in corruption, fraud and nepotism, however 'history' had already rewarded him and it was very late for rivals.

What I'm trying to say is that most knew Zuma to be 100 times more than any ordinary South African before he was exposed, before he showed his dictatorship, and before the Nkandla saga including Gupta. Malema is not 100 times more than any man and it seems unfair to compare him with anyone because he has its own category which no one seems to understand. Malema changes over night, he says this today and apologize tomorrow, he make promises now then later forget, he does this today then tomorrow forgets.

Malema knows 'business politics' very well and not just 'politics' which is why he is (or was) rich, Malema carried this mind "of believing to be president of ANC one day" which led him out of control and in a disrespectful manner thinking that he owns everything around him and he also had a power to call for change which made him a fool into thinking he owns South Africa's glorious movement. That is Malema.

Now Zuma is spitting on the reward which 'history' gave him, forgetting that 'history' is immortal and can reward someone else immediately, which is what is now doing with EFF.

I must agree that England's demise was mostly due to a horrible pool and surely as hosts they should have had an easier path to the quarter finals. Read more...

Strategic Disruption

There is, for some reason, an attraction to falling in line, following the rules, and playing this business game by the books. If you want to be an agent for change within the company, and let them know that you are not just a minion, be disruptive. Read more...
