ANCYL calls for Motlanthe for president

2012-07-21 22:36

The ANC Youth League has called on Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe to become president, and made an indirect reference toward President Jacob Zuma serving only one term.

ANCYL President Ronald Lamola said it was a tradition in the ANC for deputy presidents to later be elected as president of the organisation.

"One day comrade Kgalema Motlanthe will become president of the ANC," Lomola said. "It is written in the history books of the ANC."

Lamola was speaking at a ANCYL Nelson Mandela memorial lecture in Hillbrow, Johannesburg.

Immediately following his endorsement of Motlanthe, Lamola noted that Mandela had promised to serve only one term as state president.

"We are inspired by the man's word," Lamola said. "When he saw the nice life of the president of the country. He never let it divert [him] from that promise."

Lamola also referenced the ousting of former ANC President AB Xuma with the help of the ANCYL at a conference in 1949.
"He was not even given those minutes to finish his term," Lamola said to cheers from the audience.

Lamola also slammed ministers for poor service delivery and malfeasance and called for their firing.

Lamola singled out Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa, Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa, and Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga for criticism.
"Those who say it was not their responsibility to deliver books must also be fired," he said.

Lamola criticised Molewa for not delivering water to Carolina.
He argued that ministers were quick to make claims that they would deliver but deflected blame when they came up short.
"When things go bad you say it is not your responsibility," said Lamola.

He criticised Mthethwa for having a security fence built around his house with public funds.
"You cannot have a person where they built a security fence around his house and he does not know... how he gets in and out of his house," asked Lamola.

Immediately after criticising Mthethwa, Lamola argued that public officials who don't measure up should be fired despite who they support politically.
Lamola also defended the independence of the Youth League and argued that, using the example of Mandela, they should continue to push the ANC into more radical action.

"A child in any family must be different from its parents," Lamola said. "If a child behaves like its parents, then there is no reason for the child to have been born."

He defended the Youth League's rough language and argued that in other developing countries, such as China, government officials were younger.
"That is why [in China] you never see a sleeping politician in parliament," Lamola said.

"The politicians they even fight and moer each other. They moer each other because they are fighting for the direction of their country," he said.
Lamola also lauded the youth and their talents before expanding the Youth League's call for mine nationalisation to include land expropriation.

"[The youth] can be used in the mines we are going to nationalise and the land we are going to expropriate," Lamola said.

He argued the state should not have to compensate farmers for their land because it had previously been stolen from indigenous Africans.
"We do not understand why we must pay them because they took it for free," Lamola said.

      antebellum.axiom - 2012-07-23 13:39

      I actually aggree with one of his points... SA Ministers are notorious blame shifters and alot of them should be fired for failing to do their jobs. But then he loses the plot again... Where is his proof of this so called land theft? The interior of SA was almost completely uninhabitted. This was mostly because it it produced far less grazing for cattle than the coastal areas. Another huge factor was the defeqane/mfecane(the scattering), where Shaka and Mzilikazi slaughtered genocidal amounts of people in their conquests and raids. You also have to take the nature of these tribes into consideration. None of them were agricultural societies, they were all migratory. As soon as the grazing became sparce, they moved to a new area. So I would really like to see some documented proof, showing that all land was stolen from "indigenous Africans".

      The ANC GOVERNMENT of South Africa OWNS MILLIONS OF HECTARES, and is the LARGEST LAND OWNER IN SOUTH AFRICA. Instead of offering this land to South Africa’s poor people of all races, the ANC focuses on making the black people envious of the white land owners who produce most of South Africa’s food. The ANC plans to maintain its hold on power for decades to come, by inciting racial resentment against the white minority. Unless a new generation of enlightened black leaders emerges in South Africa, committed to promoting values, property rights and free market economic policies, South Africa’s future looks bleak.

    The youth must ask Lamola when is the ANCYL going to prioritise youth issues such as education, skills development, employment, fight against HIV and AIDS, drugs, teenage pregnancy, etc. Oh - I forgot - Lamola is fighting to be led by a president who could even not pass high school woodwork.

      thomas.obrian.92 - 2012-07-22 06:55

      Siyanda & bonga, I really wish there were more practical and intelligent people like yourselves, there would be hope for SA.

      morama - You have no idea what you are talking about. Leaders in private industry dont have education?! Who told you this? Julius? Dont listen to dumb people :P

      jmlongwe - 2012-07-23 22:12

      Why is it that when a black person speaks what aligns with your mentality, you tend to say things like this, read your statements again and will realise what i mean, what you are actually doing is insulting bongas' race by saying they are mostly stupid. There are actually white ANC supporters out there in case you didnt know, does that make the 'rest' of whites stupid? Please use your brains next time.

    this guy says that when a child is like his parents, there is no need for the child to be born. i'm curious to know his marks on his school report. i mean really now, there is only so much of stupid this country can tolerate in politics. all over the world, politicians are educated. our president didn't get to matric. The economy is directed by his polluted wisdom gained over the years. the masses are uneducated and continue to vote for corruption out of ignorance. the ancyl continue to fuel hatred and ruin the economy. when will the day come that education in politics matters??? I want a professor in Medicine who worked hard his entire life to run the department of health, not a dumb alcoholic nurse whose advice on aids was beetroot and garlic.

  • bonga.mthembu.522 - 2012-07-21 23:22

    One wonders why the ANCYL is so obssessed with Motlanthe. What about Trevor Manuel, Ramaphosa or Dlamini-Zuma? Don't they deserve to serve this country as president? Manuel and Ramaphosa, as neo-liberalists and capitalists, stand no chance as long as COSATU and SACP control the alliance. Nzimande and Vavi do not trust anyone whos is rich - such as Tokyo Sexwale, Manuel and Ramaphosa. By the way what did Motlanthe do when he was at NUM? Those who serve with him know him as a very undecisive and more of a follower than a leader. Not surprisingly these are the characteristics he has demonstrated thus far. For the ANCYL - they see in Motlanthe someone they can control and manipualte to do what thyey want. Surely they have not learnt a lesson from Zuma.

      Millos Mpofu - 2012-07-21 23:54

      Manuel is the best he can lead us to the really Rainbow Nation and He know budget verywell even Ramaphosa can lead we here today is Ramaphosa and Mandela

      keith.ngobeni - 2012-07-22 00:19

      You nailed it son of the soil, ANCYL want a YES MAN like kgalema to boss around, when I used to work as a mental health nurse in England I was working with kgalema's cousin whom she's was a doctor in the same hospital in one of our many conversations about kgalema she also mentioned that Mr deputy president is a follower not a leader and if it happens for him to be elected as a president lots of people will jump up and down on his head including ANCYL and ANC's allies.

      keith.ngobeni - 2012-07-22 00:29

      You have nailed it son of the soil, ANCYL want kgalema because he's a YES MAN, that Ronald lamola guy is an idiot he behaves like someone who jumped out of their school class windows and never returned back to study again.

      phillie.jansenvanvuuren - 2012-07-22 00:50

      It seems as if South Africa is destined to be led by a list of increasingly incompetent bunglers one after the other. When are the masses going to wake up realize that their future is linked to the prosperity of the country.

      tobydt - 2012-07-22 09:03

      Motlanthe is a weak leader. He's too quiet. He's too soft. He was also involved in corruption via the landbank.

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-07-21 23:26

    Where does Lamola get the idea all land was stolen from blacks? What about farms that the farmers are still paying for? There are very few landowners out there that are free of mortgages. If the land is taken, what happens to the balance of monies owing on the property? Who will pay that. If unpaid, the banks will repossess. Will someone please explain this to me?

      John Wilken - 2012-07-21 23:47

      Thats why they want to nationalise the financial sectors too.

      millionwatts1 - 2012-07-22 00:05

      If you pay good money for a stolen car don't be surprised when its taken away from you one day. Who issued the first title deeds on those farms? Who decided who's land it was anyway. The culture of entitlement fostered over the years have you guys believing you own everything. I got NEWS: you gonna end up with ef all if you continue with this attitude. More and more black people are questioning stuff they would never care. Stop being arrogant and just listen to what the down trodden are saying.

  • sally.lewitt - 2012-07-22 00:27

    Unfortunately racial entitlement promotes a culture of \taking\ rather than \contributing\. Of \appropriating\ rather than \serving\. Of \grabbing\ rather than \nurturing\. Of snatching the economy's low-hanging fruit instead of patiently cultivating the seed-corn South Africa desperately needs if it is to have a sustainable future. Of \contempt\ rather than \respect\ for the Constitution.. Wake UP SAns!!

Motlante is not the solution, but any peorson who was lucky to be elected as deputy president of the country,,,stop telling us about Leaders now,,,We have had enough,,,we want economic change. We have gained political freedom. Now we want economic freedom,,,Calling Motlante for presidency is not one of the means of gaining economic freedom, but political freedom

      wilana.olivier - 2012-07-23 16:44

      What EXACTLY are the "landless" going to do with this FERTILE land? I realy, realy want to know. I don't own any land and I honostly don't want to be even handed a piece of land FOR FREE. It is way to costly to build anything there. I have NO experience in farming. The closest I ever got to farming is planting a couple of flowers from the nursary. Really, what are they going to DO with all that land? You think the farmers are just going to hand over the house, cattle etc? They are going to BURN it! Well I would if I paid for a piece of property for 10+ years and worked my hands off to make it succesful and somebody just wants to take it! I can already see people just building shacks and staring into the future every single day. Land does not bring wealth, PRODUCING from the land does.

  • harry.dewet.5 - 2012-07-22 05:44

    Lamola just touches on few true facts about poor service delivery, but then misleads his supporters by false promises of quick wealth. He unfortunately is a dangerous politician with a desperate greed for power and money, whilst lacking any wisdom and vision to offer pieceful solutions to the benefit of all South Africans. His approach is militaristic and without love for the poor - his deceiving ways will most certainly cause mass destruction of our economy and civil war against farmers who all worked hard to pay for their farms. Our farmers have no where to go and they have no alternative, except to fight and kill all these uneducated savage idiots who can only destroy, rape, rob, steal, kill and burn. The time is coming closer for the uneducated savage idiots, who believe the false promises made by many ANCYL leaders, to unleash their anger and frustration by means of a flood of destruction, crime, and war. Who will stop this stampede when they come in their masses and who will survive to see the end?

      harry.dewet.5 - 2012-07-22 10:14

      @Mphozana: I am in Tokyo, Japan at this very moment and am 7 hours ahead of you. I am quite calm and relaxed and have no fear or hatred for/against any person in SA, but I see how bad things are and in which direction they are heading. These trends could be seen in all counties that recently either had civil war or are still at war. Those people in SA with hatred in their hearts will not survive whatever is coming - wait and see for yourself...

Do politicise issue of land and mines . nationalisation is for failures like you . shame on you . ANC and ancly set a task team of historians politicians economicist farmers policy planners then go and study the Zim FAILURES . pliz stop this nationalisation .Do u know how to farm . Do u even owe a hoe .

    Bonga mthembu I like most of yo comments, I wish our country cud have more people who think like u. That's y some wish u cud join certain parties. Dooooo not. People like u focus on building not a \perfect world for selected few\.

  • dumisanintandoyenkosi - 2012-07-22 06:25

    Bt seriously, da only reason the ancyl wants Zuma out is b'cos of Malema. I wuldnt be suprise if Zuma takes on the second term!

      Zama - 2012-07-22 06:49

      Don't be boss ANC is now 100 years old with out those 3 or 4 losers of this youth of 2010. They must just stop making noise and dill with corruption in the ministers cause they steal from they future then we will join them and support

  • elias.b.molomo - 2012-07-22 06:39

    Also kgakema motlanthe will see that u ancyl you r failure so now u want to fail him,

  • Chikane - 2012-07-22 06:40

    That's what we call radical change in policy, Malema is gone but the truth shall resurface. Militancy is the order of the youth league. Zuma must make way, we are congested!

      busane.khasibe - 2012-07-22 08:03

      must fire Lamola for what? He better fire the ANCYL at large coz doz a not ideas of lamola nor malema dey a ideas of the YL

  • Thobile Lugwadu - 2012-07-22 07:04

    As for me i am proposing that we the citizens must nominate our own president. We must first build a vehicle him or her in the form of a social movement. The names i put forward are as follows...ps the spelling check agents must forgive me ...here they are1. Mark shuttleworth 2. Sisa ngebulana 3. Neils anderson, 4 irvin khoza 4 . Mampela rampela etc , you mention yours. The reason i steered clear from the likes of trevor manuel, tokyo sexwale .cryril ramaphosa,helen zille, patricia , patric motsepe is because they are active polititians and are therefore not divorced from their respective political parties.

      sydney.matubandlela - 2012-07-22 07:47

      You are sick, that's all I can say! The presidency is a political post, there's no way you can divorce it from politics! Besides, if things were to be done that way all of us would come with five different names and whose would we then consider?

  • Erna - 2012-07-22 07:09

    And will they say the same in four years time as now - We made a mistake! Once again they are picking someone just to get rid of the current president, and look where that got us last time! How about thinking what is best for the people for a change? And I hope that once Zuma is ousted they will carry on and insist that the charges against him are reinstated.

  • Zama - 2012-07-22 07:16

    Those boys must just shut up because they don't know who must be the President now, where is Mbeki now because of them. They must just look at the ministers and fire them they steal their future and we will support them. Every time they open the mouth they bring Zielle close to the seat of JZ

  • mawetu.janda - 2012-07-22 07:19

    Remember! You were among those who called Zuma for the presidente and now you want Motliante(a fence sitter) to be a president.Are you very much sure He is in you side? Do you know him well ? Do you trust him . Do you want us (just for the sake of you achieve whatyou want)again to move from bad to worst by bringing an old bachelor who can't be responsible for himself to be responsible for our lives

      Zama - 2012-07-22 07:27

      He just pay vavi to keep quiet on the E- tolling. How can you trust him from them a gain? No ways my man ndiyala

  • dumisani.mthembu.921 - 2012-07-22 07:25

    We trust that God will never give these silly and ignorant. Ancyl learders a chance to lead this country. they are self-centerd and uneducated. away wth the current Ancyl leaders!

      Thobile Lugwadu - 2012-07-22 09:22

      Bra dumza. How do you tell if someone is educated or not? Do you mean technical skills or academia? Must we all possess PHDs before we can strive fore equitable share of mineral resources? Do we all have to be astraunats,acturies,CAs in order to be taken seriously?

  • Ronald Pieterse - 2012-07-22 07:26

    When will the youth realize that true economic emancipation can only be achieved through proper education ie the acquiring of skills, learning to read & write, business principles etc. Having economic freedom without education and the skills to steer that freedom in the direction for the good of everyone, will make the fight for that freedom in vain. Let's first fight for our people to be educated.

      Zama - 2012-07-22 07:31

      Whites are not better and educated than black as well

      ako.gutshwa.7 - 2012-07-22 07:50

      Yes Ronald I agree with you ANCYL should encourage youth to equip themselves with adequate skills, just tell me if for example today I'm given a farm what am I going to do with? Farming need someone with a passion as well plus a skill. Let me tell you something after they are given those farms they'll start fighting over those farms and even kill each other just like they fighting today over who's gonna run the country

      mphozana.manfred - 2012-07-22 08:01

      Zulu stop being so sheepish, if you start by chasing after education then you will never ever come around to chase after the land, in 50 years to come, when your offspring open their mouths to speak about land they will be told to get an education 1st...

      mphozana.manfred - 2012-07-22 08:04

      Gutjwa, you keep on refering to 'they' n who are you kanti?

      ako.gutshwa.7 - 2012-07-22 12:01

      @ Mphozana I'm reffering to the unskilled ANCYL who want to run farms, yes I myself would be happy if I can run farm one day but I won't take it if I'm not well skilled to run it because I know that would be very dangerous to the economy of this country, unless you don't mind having a farm and starve the nation just like in Zimbabwe that's why they are here. You see Mphozana arguing about farms is just a waist of time there are so many things we need to sort out in this country, this is a strategy for the ANCYL to gain your support. Do you see it really happening you running a farm, your sibblings, each and every black running a farm, practically I don't see it happening just wake up they are only need your vote after that there'll be another promise, I promise you this is politic my dear to understand it you have to be one of them

      dewald.vos.56 - 2012-07-22 13:50

      Please explain to me who will get all the expropriated land? There are only a couple of thousand farmers and 49 mil citizens. Only the politicians and a select few will benefit from nationalization. Do you guys think that all white people own land?? Most white people work normal jobs 9 -5 and most of them are only able to rent houses and not buy. The masses will stay poor and nothing will change that except education. You can have a thousand hectares, but without capital and the necessary now you will just incur debt and end up with nothing.... So once again who will be getting all the land...and who will be benefit? And also explain how the average white probably 3 000 000 benefit from farms?? We don’t get any money from farms we only get the food they produce and yes we PAY for it... So explain how most poor people will benefit from land expropriation????????

    They are looking for a puppet,,they had realised zuma is not dancing to their music,,,

  • sefako.mokgalaka - 2012-07-22 07:48

    Just now you were killing for Zuma to become the president. He became president and you got tenders, he stopped the looting of resources through Cassel Mathale's Limpopo provincial government loophole. Now you want Motlanthe to help you to sustain expensive life styles. We need progress report on the Limpopo ANC elective conference resolutions and not another president.

  • phumi.ntlabati - 2012-07-22 07:50

    A radical shift to policies that are more biased in favour of the working class and the downthrodden wil happen in our lifetime! Those that have been co-opted to the greed and fealth of white monopoly capital like the Bulelwa Sonjica's of this world wil be given swift justice of the people! Economic freedom is not a pipe dream but a reality that the Africans in particular and blacks in general will live. Viva President Mkhuluwa our brother leader viva!

  • georgebrightons - 2012-07-22 07:54

    What a disgrace. History is the daily norm. Millions are starving. Illiterates racing for the driving seat and taxpayer's money through fraud and corrupt means. Syndicate Billionaire's club taking it's toll. Authorities turning a blind eye. Millions watching. History will be written. Oliver Tambo and Chris Hani we are lost,please show us the way.

  • duma.nkabinde - 2012-07-22 08:08

    The decision of putting an end to an oppressive regime was never a moral one!but a purely economic decision meant to keep a vast majority of wealth in the hands of a few!! We need a referendum!!
