Malema to address SANDF

2012-09-12 07:24

Johannesburg - Expelled ANCYL leader Julius Malema will on Wednesday address members of the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) in Johannesburg.

"The address is as a result of requests sent by the armed forces to Malema to come and listen to their cries and demands," suspended ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said in a statement.

Shivambu said the soldiers' complaints included being threatened with dismissal, and low salaries.

"Malema will listen to their demands and suggest solutions to end the unnecessary starvation and threats of dismissals to the soldiers."

    Will it be wishfull thinking if someone from the SANDF accidently discharges their weapon into his direction ?

      Rabbler.Rouser - 2012-09-12 07:36

      Maybe Malema is just a modern day Spartacus and hastily forging his way to crucification.

      byron.beedle - 2012-09-12 07:37

      Is the start of a coup by juju to takeover the country.

      mihaip007 - 2012-09-12 07:38

      these are really troubling days - I am sure the country is ready to be set on fire...

      frank.kistler.31 - 2012-09-12 07:53

      Why does the ANC permit this ....d**s to speak ANYWHERE.....are they hiding the bigger agenda perhaps?

      susan.pretorius.31 - 2012-09-12 07:59

      I dont beleive in revenge but accidents happen..

      frank.kistler.31 - 2012-09-12 08:02

      My theory is this : JUJU will motivate miners to strike for more money...eventually the mines will fire these people....then they'll turn to JUJU for money.....and they will hunt him down....just my 2 cents..

      Hemlock - 2012-09-12 10:58

      We can only hope and pray that your wish is granted. But please discharge it several times, just to make sure!!!

  • larry.piggott1 - 2012-09-12 07:32

    This guy should not be allowed to talk to the Army. He has no position and will only stir up more trouble. He should be arrested and Jailed.

      raymond.romans.5 - 2012-09-12 07:36

      Perhaps if we leave him, treason laws may be applied. Remember Botswana.

      mihaip007 - 2012-09-12 07:37

      I am sure this should be grounds for treason and other charges that wants to destabilise a country's defence force...

      patsy.smith.125 - 2012-09-12 08:55

      Isn't there a law against stirring up trouble? If so, why is it not being applied to this fat idiot who won't be happy until he has destroyed his own country.

      abrammothothi.mamabolo - 2012-09-12 13:29

      watch your mouth you are talking about our president.do you think we will just sitdown and watch arresting our president.

  • mhla.rwexu - 2012-09-12 07:32

    This is a direct result of our aloof leaders, who are not in touch with the plight of the masses. Giving oppertunists a platform

      Exactly !!

  • herman.mouton - 2012-09-12 07:33

    This is not good.....How can this be allowed??? Just strolling into a defence force base and adress the people??? WTF???

      petrus.ngwenya.3 - 2012-09-12 08:55

      There is just as much corruption and intimidation on the senior levels (Col, Lt Col, Brigadier) of the SANDF as there is in the rest of the goverment. No base commander will have the guts to refuse him. Source: My 10 years serving in the SANDF.

  • shawn.swiegers - 2012-09-12 07:34

    If Boeremag was charged and convicted with treason I hope the same due process will follow this radical menace.

      Ummm.. mbeko.trevor, first, learn how to use a grown up keyboard and second, shawn.swiegers said "radical menace" not racial. Read carefully before making comments.

    You can't allow Malema to address SANDF, on what ground? this is scary.

      Child agree-soldier not at all

      He's too much of a coward to ever be a soldier and far to fat and useless.

  • dawie002 - 2012-09-12 07:40

    Here comes the coup

  • andre.vandeventer.16 - 2012-09-12 07:43

    Arrest the specific soldiers and discharge them dishonourably after they have served their sentence. This amounts to treason because the defence force of any country serves the government in power, regardless whether the government is led by fools or not!

  • long.tom.509 - 2012-09-12 07:45

    I think the bot is been set up for a mighty fall! where in the world would a normal citizen be allowed to waddle into a military base and listen to grievances for goodness sake,the military is just not part of the civilian community and have there own internal structures to resolve there problems,perhaps the reporting on this is a bit jaded?

  • peter.fraser.92754 - 2012-09-12 07:46

    So basicaly, any ordanary citizen (like Malema now is) can go and address who ever, where and when ever they want to and talk clap and stir shirt / Correct ?

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-12 11:58

      PF well actually the answer is yes. This is a democracy and we have free speech. All this talk about treason isn't true either, it will only become treason when Malema or anyone else for that matter want to do away with the government. Remember why the Boeremag men were jailed?.

  • teddy.beer.319 - 2012-09-12 07:47

    How in hell can we allow a civilian, especially a politically deranged one, to address the army?! Which country does this? This chap is a threat to national security. When Malema said 'you don't have leaders' I castigated him. Now I believe this ship which is our country is not only leaderless, but has no compass as well. Why are we were we are today? Soon, we will wonder what hit us!

      lulama.mbelwa - 2012-09-12 07:53

      Exactly my thoughts Teddy, who is he to address the army? What does he know about the force coz he's a civilian.

  • Tobie Vd Vyver - 2012-09-12 07:49

    He is an opportunist, a parasite, praying on the weak. I can't see that this clown can even be allowed to even speak to masses as he was expelled. Just to think that all who follows him must be brain dead, as no normal person in his right mind can listen to this idiot!

      kganki - 2012-09-12 08:03

      it's actually PREY, not pray! ;-)

      Msika - 2012-09-12 08:14

      It's actually :-), not ;-)

  • janzanele - 2012-09-12 07:49

    malema should be charged with treason or be silenced forever,even them calling malema won't solve the problem instead he is ignite more problem,by being radical it's not a profession.he hardly have payslip,so be carefull who do you call to solve your problems

  • themba.thwala.98 - 2012-09-12 07:49

    This is exactly what happens when an essential service such as defence of the country is allowed to unionise. The same applies to teachers. If people are not happy about their working conditions, they can resign and find greener pastures. Having said that, I think Juju should be allowed to go and address the soldiers. An idiot that he is, he is likely to incite violence thus committing a crime of sedition, and the SAPS can pounce on him, haul him before the court and throw him in jail where the Hawks and SARS can finish him off as the latter's investigations seem to be taking forever

      jayjay.mlungu - 2012-09-12 08:17

      I think Juju is doing all of this because he knows that if he doesn't get massive support, he will not be able to stop the Government from putting him in jail for corruption. He is a master strategist but very dangerous to this country

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-09-12 09:19

      You are right JJ, Juju wants to pull a Zuma on SA in the event of being hauled before the Courts. In the same way as Zuma did, his followers will probably threaten the Courts and bloodshed if the charges are not dropped. I hope some of the smarter people who have been writing speeches for Zuma wake him up from his eNkandla harem and impress upon him the seriousness of the situation and the urgency to act

  • peter.mokoena.31 - 2012-09-12 07:49

    In a country with leadeship vacuum, this is possible. Where the goverment is failing its citizens everyone will stand to make a point. This is the country where the public procter is having more issues to deal with than the goverment, education, corruption, poverty and nepotism in all goverment post occupied by the unskilled. WHAT WOULD U EXPECT?

  • lulama.mbelwa - 2012-09-12 07:50

    Is this a joke or what, the National Defence of South Africa wants Malema to listen to their cries. Who is Malema?? Is he the head of this country. This is humiliating for the country. I cannot believe this what does the minister of defence have to say about this. SA is really turning into a joke.

      kganki - 2012-09-12 07:57

      his name is Julius- the voice of the powerless! You can follow him on twitter or like his page on Facebook, surely there you will get to know him better.

      justin.andrews.522 - 2012-09-12 08:25

      Isaac - it is a pitty the rules you speak so highly of will eventually destroy South Africa. Understand this BOY... I was born here, so were my parents and my grandparents. This is my country. This may be your CONTINENT, but South Africa is not where you originated from. Or dont you understand "complicated" things like that?

      Tobie Vd Vyver - 2012-09-12 08:33

      @Isaac, looks like you like making stupid remarks. If you follow malema, you are just as brain dead as he is. It's because of people like you that this country is going nowhere and all that Mandela strived for is gone - to be one nation, regardless of race. I think you should go do an IQ test and go learn to spell!

      justin.andrews.522 - 2012-09-12 09:00

      Thanks Ntloko - will you also employ the workers I employ for me when I leave, as they will be without jobs? Thanks so much for the packing help brew, I got lots of stuff i worked hard to buy, gona need the help.

Julias is only instigating violence and should be solely held accountable for the mess at Marikana. As far as the SANDF is concerned - they're sitting on they're overweight arses and if they do get up, it's just to go to KFC or to take a dump!

      If only it were that easy to shut him up and put him away, but the stupid soldiers are the ones who called for him. \r\n\The address is as a result of requests sent by the armed forces to Malema to come and listen to their cries and demands,\ suspended ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said in a statement.

    The government must invite Malema to some discussions as they have done with the likes of Bishop Tutu when he was publicly speaking against the leadership (Zuma), ignoring him because the ANC has expelled him whilest part of society still wants to hear him is a recipe for disaster. The man can be very dangerous if left to be
