Burn down The Herald: ANC leader

2011-05-20 15:33

Port Elizabeth - ANC Nelson Mandela Bay chairperson Nceba Faku incited more than 100 party members to burn down The Herald newspaper as he celebrated the party's election victory outside the Port Elizabeth City Hall on Thursday night.

According to The Herald newspaper a senior ANC spokesperson "almost immediately" distanced the party from the inflammatory call, and appealed for political maturity and restraint from party leaders.

Standing at the entrance to the City Hall with an ANC flag on his shoulder, Faku said the party was celebrating an "important battle that is between the ANC and the media".

"The primary battle of the ANC has been with the media, especially The Herald, in this region," the newspaper quoted Faku saying.

"Down with white political parties, down. Down with those who vote for white political parties, down."

‘Fire to The Herald’

The ANC retained control of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro with 51.9% of the votes.

Faku was mentioned in the Kabuso forensic report into municipal land sales and tenders, commissioned by the provincial local government and traditional affairs department.

The Herald went to the courts to force department MEC Mlibo Qoboshiyane, who doubles as ANC provincial spokesperson, to release the report.

At the celebration Faku told the crowds: "Down with The Herald, down, down. Burn The Herald. Fire to The Herald.

"The Herald dictated that [DA leader Helen] Zille and [Cope’s Smuts] Ngonyama would stand here today and run the metro. The Herald was on the forefront of that … passop [beware] The Herald, passop.

"If you can’t draw the line today … We have to draw the line. We have to go back to the UDF [United Democratic Front] approach. We sacrificed our families, we gave our flesh and blood for the cause of the struggle.

"Go and burn The Herald. We will face a bullet with a bullet."

As Faku was speaking ANC Motherwell branch secretary Zola Mayedwa approached a Herald reporter and advised him to hide his notebook.

To loud applause, Faku said blacks who did not like other black people and their organisations should be driven into the sea, or go to Europe.

"We need a Malema in this town, we need a Malema," said Faku, before handing the microphone to ANC MP Cedric Frolick.

Frolick said: "The DA and the media campaigned against the ANC."

He said they would not allow the "racism" of the DA-led Western Cape to divide Bay citizens.

Sanef horrified

SA National Editors’ Forum chairperson Mondli Makhanya said the group was horrified that a senior political leader in South Africa could call for the burning of newspapers.

The last time political leaders called for the burning literature was in Nazi Germany in the 1930s, he said.

Makhanya called for the ANC’s national leadership to act quickly against Faku and take the strongest action against him for putting the ANC in the same light as Hitler and Italy’s former dictator Benito Mussolini.

He said Faku's utterances were a criminal offence and should be treated as such.

Herald Editor Heather Robertson said: "I am deeply disturbed by Mr Faku’s threat to burn this newspaper. It is shocking that he attacks all of us who work for The Herald on the night of what should be the ANC’s victory celebration.

"Mr Faku clearly does not grasp the freedom of expression clause in the Bill of Rights, which was drafted by the ANC.

"Mr Faku’s statements go against the very basis of what the ANC has so valiantly fought for by incitement of imminent violence against The Herald and all who work for it, including members and supporters of the ANC."

Qoboshiyane distanced the party from Faku's statements.

    And why is this man not charged due to making such racist statements such as "Down with white political parties, down. Down with those who vote for white political parties, down." Why, in this day and age, can someone say such things and not get into trouble? If I say anything similar, such as "Down with blacks, down with black people and black parties, down with them all" I'd be taken to court most why can they say such things without a worry in the world? This is absolutely sickening.

      Charlie I'm black and I agree with you,no wonder the world is going to an end,

      Matt - 2011-05-20 15:45

      Alas the ANC can do and say as they please without repercussion. I can't imagine how PE residents must be feeling right now.

      jowza - 2011-05-20 16:13 on earth can you condone this

      Podgette - 2011-05-20 16:13

      Because he is a member of the ANC and therefore "kan maak en breek soos he wil"! Wonder if the people that voted for the ANC will regret it when South Africa is in ruins or if they will just quietly go back to their primitive existence without comment?!

      clark - 2011-05-20 16:15

      - The Anc are full of these loose cannons ,like Malema and this Fak - u They allow them to mouth off racial hate speech and whilst' distancing' themselves from it, the leadership never comes out with an outright condemnation, nor do they ever discipline the individuals. Again I say the Anc has evil and sininster agenda's.

      changeisGood - 2011-05-20 16:16

      You just said Charlie!

      Delarey - 2011-05-20 16:32

      Racism is what the ANC leadership based their campaign on as they could not do it from a delivery and good governance platform! This is what happens when you let an idiot like Malema spew racistic, hateful vitriol! Let's see if our democratically appointed president and his party do the right thing and throw this bigot out?? Sadly their track record says they will not and it will be up to someone else to go after this retard and in turn get branded as white and racist. Pathetic. The problem is that as the ANC dishonours itself and loses ground their rhetoric and actions will get more and more radical.

      AH - 2011-05-20 16:36

      @Ntebo It is comments like yours that give me hope for this country...just to realise that an idiot like Faku does not speak for all blacks and will not blindly follow such poor excuse for leaders...

      Balmy - 2011-05-20 20:42

      @Refilwemu - really then what the press had to say about that idiot Faku and the ANC is also freedom of expression. See the hypocracy here????? And what happened to freedom of association because now it seems if you don't vote for the ANC you must be driven into the sea? Thank the lord I live in Cape Town.

      Pencilgraffiti - 2011-05-21 00:57

      @Mbuso - You say this but i ask you.. Go to The Herald and find out how many black people work for the paper, as journalists, managers etc... If you have the balls to do that, then ask yourself... Is this a "white racist newspaper" or simply the media fighting corruption... Cause YOUR elected government is certainly not doing anything to fight it. There are many black journalists in this country fighting corruption as well... Think.

      shannonmomberg - 2011-05-21 06:24

      "Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another…" Nelson Mandela, Inaugural Address, Pretoria 9 May 1994. Nceba Faku, Julius Malema and the like.... You are an absolute disgrace to the legacy left by Madiba. (As a resident of PE) I am appalled that the ANC allows you to remain in office and continue to destroy everything that one of the worlds greatest leaders fought so hard to give you. You should be held accountable. That you won't be will cost you dearly in the next election. You are the cANCer that will destroy the rainbow nation.

      No good the ANC 'distancing' themselves from this goon -- they have to make an example of him. If they let this type of thing slide, then there is absolutely no hope of healing the racial rifts in this country.

      ardeola7 - 2011-05-21 12:22

      Absolutely! If that isn't hate speech, then I don't know what IS.

      shannonmomberg - 2011-05-21 15:55

      Over and above the apathy of the ANC in dealing with these immature children, I can sincerely say I love these guys! Malema and Faku rock. They are my Heros. They will deliver South Africa to the DA. Maybe they are already delivery boys for the madam and the tea girl. The DA's secret weapon. I think they alone scored more votes for the DA in a week than the madams hard work in three weeks. Madam you are pretty sharp me thinks. :).

      ian.teall - 2011-05-21 16:18

      Why stop at a newspaper??? Burn Africa down, Mr Faku-p, that is ultimately what the black man wants!!!!

      FutureSA - 2011-05-21 17:47

      Well, revenge is sweet, if they burn down the Herald we get to burn down the SABC ..... a biased media tool for that awful black "political" party. Oh dear... and now I feel a liberation struggle coming along, I need a liberation chant please. 3 words will do along with some stamping of the feet....

      My2c - 2011-05-21 18:27

      Kom nou ANC, Julle hou nie daarvan as joernaliste in LibYa geskiet word nie, maar in PE sê julle Brand die Herald af. Julle is net so vinnig om iemand met dood te dreig as hulle iets berig waarvan julle nie hou nie. Julle is niks anders nie. En as Faku se opinie nie julle sin is nie, tree op teen die man, as julle nie teen hom optree nie, dan beteken dit julle ondersteun hom

      jowza - 2011-05-20 16:06

      i agree

      Cornix - 2011-05-20 16:32

      If the ANC do not condemn Mr Faku's behaviour, they are just as guilty in spreading the hatred and dividing the nation. Let's see if they are going to do anything about it.

      AH - 2011-05-20 16:32

      Off course he believes in democracy...well as long as there is no freedom of press, freedom for who you can vote or other parties...wait a minute that is exactly Gadaffi's ideology. We all know what is going to happen with Gadaffi don't we?

      Thad - 2011-05-20 16:46

      Faku said blacks who did not like other black people and their organisations should be driven into the sea, or go to Europe - He obviously fails to see that as a black man, HE does not like other black people and their organisations. So does that mean that he should be driven into the see or go to Europe too?

      dangerfieldK - 2011-05-20 15:52

      Well at least if the world is REALLY ending tomorrow it will also mean the end of the ANC :P On a serious note, though...The ANC are a bunch of hypocrites. How can you call other political parties such as the DA racist, but then make an OPENLY racist statement such as "Down with white political parties, down. Down with those who vote for white political parties, down." I still cannot comprehend HOW the f*ck these IDIOTS can be running a COUNTRY!!!!!!!!

      It's simple. they are jealous of the fact that they can never achieve what the so caled "colonists" can. They know this very well, the only way they can even out the playing field is to destroy the "colonists" fields first. This is not a racial rant, but the mentality that is illustrated by brainwashed ANC peanuts such as this guy.

      capecrowley - 2011-05-20 16:16

      They are threatened by the non-racialism of the DA. Once South Africans begin to abandon the politics of the past, accept non-racialism and begin voting according to delivery, the ANC is dead in the water. There will be nothing left of them.

      emile.marais - 2011-05-20 16:17

      wanda your mentality is part of the problem. Freedom of expression wanda or does that not count if you are black?

      Thandiwe83 - 2011-05-20 16:40

      @Wanda. Haha I am black actually. I think your reply vindicates my point. You yourself are spewing hate - are you jealous of people like me? I have two degrees in Mechanical Engineering, I design pumps for water and sewage works. I voted for ANC until this year when I realised they are incompetent. They don't provide money or care about water infrastructure - I even came up with a big plan on how to drain acid water - it was ignored - my design for permanent pumps which remove acid from the water basin was disgarded (a Chinese company are now interested). Yes the ANC freed me and I thank them for that, but they manage infrastructure really badly. I moved down to CT and work there and am amazed at the contrast. Best water infrastructure in the country - only place where I drink the tap water and I know what is in it! You spew bile and hate and probably have no education - you probably don't work to better yourself or your mind. You are racist too. Get off your a*** and work - I did night study to improve my English - do something - stop moaning about the DA - they have done an incredible job and I never thought I would say that!

      Gareth - 2011-05-20 18:28

      Wanda just because someone has a diffrent view point and are of the same skin color doesnt mean they are traitors to the past freedom struggle, but thats what it is is the past freedom struggle. You say the ANC are good. but what do you get for your taxes in Canada our schools are free our medical is free we have social aid programs for below poverty belt individuals and our taxes are no where near as high as south africa's , So what is the ANC doing with your taxes if you even pay taxes, Zuma has a beautiful car. Did you know that Zuma Actuly make more money then the canadian Prime minster and on the whole for per captia and land mass and responsabilties Zuma actualy Makes slightly less then the President of the U.S.A.SO ask yourself where are the social programs houses they have promised The D.A. have built more house in the Western Cape then the ANC has in the whole of south africa, and as for Malema he is a man full of himself and full of Hatred he is a racist through and through and the world looks at him and they think this is what South Africans are about, Shame on him and shame on anyone who enables this man to carry on defame this beautiful countries name. He has brought shame on all those who have fought and died for you to be able to have a fair election.

      A Few yaers ago we in PE had, I think 4 Billion in the bank(could be a little less like 2 Billion but not less than that). All those billions gone. Spent by the anc. Now Nmbm has not got enough to pay the salaries. No work can be done by outside vendors. They cannot be paid bacause everything was spent. This is in a time frame of 2 years.

      Ogre - 2011-05-20 16:14

      Henry, thanks for providing the amswer to why faku is so peed aff. He had just found out that the metro bank account was empty and there was nothing to steal. If we could hear hom think it would be as follows: "All that hard work for nothing. The bloody Herald and the DA did not fight hard enough to win and now we have to sit in the same position as the voters we screwed and lied to!"

      capecrowley - 2011-05-20 16:19

      Because the ANC's majority is paper thin, if only one of their councillors are absent they will be unable to govern. Also, if only one of their councillors are arrested or dies due to an 'unknown medical problems' (read, HIV/AIDS), there will be a by-election and presto, a non-ANC coalition will rule the city. Don't give up hope!!!

      Matt - 2011-05-20 16:21

      @ Henry - so when they still vote ANC, it makes one wonder hey... WHY?!

      tell that to the woodworker who does not understand the word context

      This man is not fit to work, let him go.

      RVQ - 2011-05-20 16:08

      Then let's wait for JZ to publicly apologise and reprimand him, like he did when Malema lost it at the Kimberly rally, right?

      changeisGood - 2011-05-20 16:24

      It will never end.

      Thad - 2011-05-20 16:57

      That just proves that it is not about freedom or civil rights to you, but about fighting, killing and hatred. The struggle will never end because you and people like you doesn't want it to.

  • Shane - 2011-05-20 15:49

    Very distrubing but typical of a racist party such as the ANC. The ANC only seeks to threaten racial harmony and promotes division and hatred instead. It is very disappointing that more than 60% of South African voters cannot see how destructive this party really is.

      HowardX - 2011-05-20 15:52

      You only have to look at the matric pass rate to understand why 60% of South Africans would continue to vote for the worst government in our history. There's no accounting for sheer stupidity.

  • DW - 2011-05-20 15:49

    "Down with white political parties, down. Down with those who vote for white political parties, down." "He said they would not allow the "racism" of the DA-led Western Cape to divide Bay citizens." - Do you think he has any idea that he first incites racism and then accuses the DA of racism?

      Maybe the editors forum should go and do as Afriforum just did - Or maybe just wait for the process to cut Malema's wings to have a sample case - but then again it might just be wishful thinking on my part? - If they lost they might just have gone and burn the Herald - Eish - One can only imagine the reaction of an A$$hole like the dump facku if they lost the election in Mandela bay.

      they will change colour

      Durasmart - 2011-05-20 16:04

      The ANC fired him as mayor a few years ago for fraud and misspending of public funds, so how could they still allow him a public platform under the ANC banner to incite violence.The Herald should lay a criminal charge against him for inciting violence and just make sure their insurance is paid up in case some of his idiot followers take him seriously.

      anita.nortje - 2011-05-20 16:08

      NO they will change shape.... become one of the Fat Cats....

      @Durasmart Its beyond comprehesion now, like you say he was fired for fraud and corruption but is still working for the anc - how does this work??? Have these people learnt no morals from their parents, it seems they happy going through life stealing, lying and cheating...scum of the earth!!!

  • Makgalemele - 2011-05-20 15:50

  • yamadhoota - 2011-05-20 15:51

    Basically saying " We own this country, you don't. You are trespassing. Do exactly what we say or we will kick you out". POLICY.

  • The All Seeing Eye - 2011-05-20 15:51

    Yip when you win with only 51% and nearly lost. Screw democracy start intimdating ZIM style. By the way DA is not a white parth if they got 24% of the vote country wide and all white voted DA and they only 7% of the population less then a third of DA votes.

      Kevin - 2011-05-20 18:00

      Now we know what will happen when the ANC has its back to the wall in an election. The difference between here and Zim is that we have far more foreign investment that will pull out and collapse our economy so punishing the poor.

      Drow Ninja - 2011-05-20 19:28

      @ All Seeing Eye. Problem is the poor never knows such, nor how do we get our money they always ask why does the president not simply print more paper for money :-) No they'll no learn from Zim people, I have a Zim friend and he says the Zim situation is just propaganda. Again irrespective of vote cheating, too many in Zim still Vote Robert than logic would lead you to think.

      It would probably have been a mud hut he was standing at. Not the city hall

  • v3 - 2011-05-20 15:53

    It's up to the ANC leadership to prove whether he speaks for the party or not. They either expel him (he doesn't) or leave him (he does). My guess is that the Manny-Malema racist faction will win, but - for the sake of the country - hope that I am wrong.

  • Aabfrits - 2011-05-20 15:53

  • nosidam - 2011-05-20 15:53

    Why the ANC would want PE is a mystery in itself. There is no money left for them to steal. Just another buffoon dressed up in green and yellow

      scotty scotty - 2011-05-20 20:45

      Their salary is paid from central goverment using our taxes, had they lost there would have been plenty of ANC members out of jobs.

  • FaxM8 Fax - 2011-05-20 15:53

  • Ntebo More - 2011-05-20 15:53

    Are you people aware that politics are making us hate each other? whites hate blacks, blacks hate whites all because of politics, now we call each other names mostly because of DA and ANC the leaders who don't even know us or where we live this is bull shit

      Andy - 2011-05-20 15:58

      You are correct! The politics of this country incite hate, this would never be allowed to happen in any other civilized country.

      Stryder - 2011-05-20 15:59

      @Ntebo More - I have never heard a DA leader call for violence against anyone. I agree with your sentiment, but you need to understand that it is the ANC leaders who are to blame. The AFRICAN NATIONAL congress, as it's name implies, has a Nationalist Agenda geared toward the exclusion of non blacks, they are a racist party and it starts with their name.

      Valis - 2011-05-20 16:03

      That is the policy of the racist ANC, divide and rule. Don't you dare mention the DA's name in the same sentence as the ANC. You can't point out one single time where the DA were being racist or sowed racial division.

      Rooi gevaar - 2011-05-20 16:08

      I don't hate blacks or the ANC. Can you or the ANC say the same?

      jowza - 2011-05-20 16:09

      @rooi gevaar.yes the anc also dont hate blacks

      Dominion - 2011-05-20 16:10

      Well said man... Racism is so old school now. The people (most of them) have moved on. The leaders are the ones still holding on.

      Matt - 2011-05-20 16:26

      @ Ntebo More - I often say this... if the ANC could just shut up for once, white and black will get along just fine. It's once the ANC speaks that they cause racial issues. This cracker loves my black bros and sistas, f**k the ANC to hell

      smashly - 2011-05-20 16:27

      very true! but not only that how could he attack his own race by saying : "blacks who did not like other black people and their organisations should be driven into the sea, or go to Europe" now isnt that harsh! apart from being a racist to whites how could he do that to his own people! everyone has a right to an opinion and who we choose to vote for!

      capecrowley - 2011-05-20 16:28

      @ Ntebo I agree completely. Any South African who interacts regularly with other South Africans across the colour spectrum knows that we are all a warm, empathetic and wonderful people. I've travelled in many countries, and have never witnessed such natural, spontaneous warmth. It is this politics of fear evident by politicians and contributors on these forums (whites and blacks) that tries to set the national dialogue, even though it is a false one based on power, egos and aggression. Do not fall for it! Hold on to your optimism, and be rewarded every day!

      Spartikusza - 2011-05-20 16:35

      capecrowley - 2011-05-20 16:47

      @ Stryder, Valis, Rooi Gevaar, Matt We are ALL responsible for the tone in this country. As long as we put 100% blame on everybody else, we'll never get through this. Thinking that we are perfect and that every single ANC supporter is incompetent, corrupt, lazy etc. isn't going to get us anywhere.

      marisa.cronje - 2011-05-20 16:54

      I don't hate blacks Ntebo... but I hate the ANC like poison.

      scotty scotty - 2011-05-20 20:48

      Wherever there is politcal conflict the ANC is always involved. Previous it was PAC and IFP, now it will be DA. The ANC wont let go untill all opposition has been wiped out.

      Loubser Toerien - 2011-05-21 07:39

      On the ball there!

      Francois - 2011-05-21 09:50

      No Ntobe brother, it is not politics, but the way it is practiced that drives hate. And also, not the DA I'm proud to say; the ONLY party to spew hatred is the ANC - I honestly (unless I misread something somewhere) cannot recall that the DA ever preached hate -rather, they plead for inclusivity and a unified nation. The ANC preaches hate because it has no other foundationn on which to base a campaign, as they cannot deliver. So please revise your view that politics bring out the worst - in fact, empirical research will show that hate speech has one main source in SA......
