Malema: I've never had a formal job

2011-11-16 13:01

The African National Congress disciplinary committee ruled last week against Julius Malema, 30, for questioning President Jacob Zuma's leadership and support for the government of neighbouring Botswana, which the ANC Youth League had labelled imperialist.

In his first news conference since that ruling, Malema said on Wednesday that "only the wilfully blind can believe that this matter is purely about discipline and not intended to settle political scores and stifle debate."

Here are some of Malema’s best quotes from the news conference:

- "As a a disciplined force, the ANCYL will follow all internal ANC processes to challenge these findings."

- "Our battle cry is unban the ANC youth league to defend the voice of the voiceless."

- "President Zuma is the president of the ANC... I can't have feelings for him... My relationship with Zuma remains a political one."

- "We will decide when the time is right whether there is a need for President Zuma to continue or not continue."

- "I am born African National Congress. I will die African National Congress."

- "Suspended for five years is much better than 27 years in jail... I'll come back in five years and continue the struggle."

- I've never had a formal job. I've never been a garden boy or a factory worker or in government. So how can I influence tenders?"

- "I'm not worried about being locked up by the Hawk or the public protector...I am one person who is not easily intimidated."

- "Hawks must come and tell me what I did wrong. South Africa is not a banana republic. I will not be intimidated. I am not scared of jail. Not even jail doors will stop the ideas we are advocating. Let them lock me up," he said referring to allegations that the Hawks were investigating him.

- "When there is corruption it must be reported."

- "I still want evidence from the City Press that I've accepted R200 000 bribes."

- "Some of those ANC members convicted of drinking and driving should have undergone a disciplinary hearing."

- "Let the enemy celebrate. That celebration will be short-lived," he said about the people celebrating his suspension.

- "Even if I'm on the street for five years I'll come back" to the ANC.

- "Resistance is a part of me. Defiance is a part of me. This is how I was brought up. If I am not convinced, I am not convinced."

      Francois - 2011-11-16 13:43

      The fact that he has never worked shows.

      Right - 2011-11-16 13:51

      No Doubt... Malema will bounce back....BIGGER than before.....only a matter of time. Three years....five years....seven years....ten years...whatever......he is in it for the LONG HAUL.

      Sean - 2011-11-16 13:56

      Malema said `` South Africa is not a banana republic `` Could have fooled me , lol !

      never had a formal job or functioning brain !!!!

      Ronald - 2011-11-16 15:33

      No Right, he will keep on coming back to politics purely because he has never had a proper job, in all fairness does not know how to do a proper job and knows of no other line of "work" that pays so handsomely as politics in SA.

      he looks like Barney and acts like "SPONGE" Bob, either way he is a feaking laugh a minute cartoon, pity so many people are fascinated by cartoons.

      Was Mac Maharaj 1 of the 3 south african communists which went to Moscow before 1994, and were told that communist central control economies do not work? Mac Maharaj quoted numbers from the Soviet Propaganda Book, and the russians laughed and explained to him that all the numbers in the Book were FALSE? How can Mac Maharaj carry on as a communist and a member of the ANC = Association of National Criminals, Abortion Murder Genocide? The russians have dropped the National Democratic Revolution! The chinese have dropped the National Democratic Revolution! The indians have dropped the National Democratic Revolution! What is wrong with Mac Maharaj? Has he been brainwashed? Who were the other communists? Anybody remembers? Clue: it was not Mal enema!

      All that money and no formal job. Sounds like admission to me.

      Michael - 2011-11-16 16:24

      LOL "I've never been a garden boy or a factory worker..." Nothing wrong with people doing those jobs - at least it's honest labour. I must say that this is the FIRST time I've ever heard of those jobs being linked to tender rigging. Sigh - I guess that some people will never learn that it's better to just shut the f... up and let people just THINK they are stupid. Beer-o-clock time :-)

      Rodney - 2011-11-16 20:56

      Only the willfully stupid can't see what is obvious to the rest of us. Too stupid and too obstinate to be convinced when the truth is staring him in the face.

      alansmartSnr - 2011-11-17 22:38

      I believe him, after all, who would employ a 30+ year old drop out with a sub grade 7 qualification other than for a janitor or something simular. He was writing an ENTRANCE exam at Unisa. You have to have matric with science and maths as subject. or you can apply to any varsity for an exemption by writing an Entrance exam. The other other option is that if you are over 30 you can write an E/exam. This is what he was doing. shame

      Thabo - 2011-11-18 11:14

      @rutger.boshoff: quite interesting what you say there. I think what you are forgetting about our "flea invested sh#t holes" is that they are the way they are as a result of colonisation. Funny how white people immediately say black people "blame everyone else but themselves" for their problems when we highlight the long lasting effects of colonisation or apartheid.(by the way, since Africa is a "flea invested sh#t hole", I assume you either don't live in Africa or are planning to move outside the continent). Truth of the matter is, what has been done and to some degree is still being done to Africans affects generations. Our people are turned against each other through greed (which was never really an African trait.. UBUNTU was our way of life)these African leaders that loot their own countries have been created by the the same colonialists. If a black person blames apartheid or colonisation, it is not a blame game .. it's the truth white people have benefited, are benefiting and will carry on benefiting from apartheid and colonisation.

      So if his so honest why doesnt he share with all of us how he got enough money to buy expensive cars and houses with no formal job? He is suppose to help the poor? Why isnt he then?

      I see one of your favourite quotes read; "Democracy is the biggest lie ever sold to Africans"... the only reason democracy has not worked for you, is because Africans only seem to respond to power? It’s actually quite sad ;-)... out of all the flea invested sh#t holes from here to Egypt not one African nation has risen above. “Go back to 1948; Germany is in ruins, Japan has been flattened, their people are beaten and demoralised, Israel has just been reborn and is under attack and Ghana just got its "independence" with a fully functional infrastructure and a competent civil service. Fifty years later Japan was the second largest economy on Earth, Germany was the third largest, Israel's GDP is larger than all its Arab neighbours combined and where in world rankings was Ghana? Mbeki is a bigoted racist who will forever blame everyone else except the rotten African leaders that have let 'his' continent down so badly.” Your mighty Melama will get you exactly back where you are now... that is a fact, you clown!!! WAKE UP ;-o

      @Thabo … you are using that spell check from the colonialist bastards and pasting under the wrong comment. Ha-ha-ha. Thabo my friend you will always be a victim, I promise you that. Many countries in Africa have had more than a fair opportunity to lift them selves up from these evil colonialist that gave them roads, etc and left them with functional civil society. Without this, I shudder to think were Africa would be, at the rate families are being planned and the population is expanding. Why is Africa where it is? Even India with its massive population and very little real mineral wealth (compared to Africa) have managed to rise above and compete in the world economy. I can tell you buddy… it’s weak leadership & a people that only respond to “power” not intellect.

      Vuyiseka, I have to remind you that Julius Malema has no respect for his elders, he has no experience in the workforce, the struggle was over before he was a teenager, he is abusing the youth to rebel against those who have at least some experience. I see no sign of any decency either. Please rather join those of us who pray for his salvation. Maybe then...

  • billyboy6 - 2011-11-16 13:51

    "Ive never had a formal job........" Does this mean that he gets a salary for doing nothing. No job description, no annual appraisals, no accountability. And the ANCYL is the nursery for future leaders of the ANC, and perhaps future presidents of the country. No wonder our ministers and others at the top of the ANC don't understand responsibility or accountability.

      Ronald - 2011-11-16 15:58

      You've got it right with the first try, Billyboy. You have basically put the job description of almost all the ANC bigwigs in a nutshell.

      I believe the guy has the point when he say he speak the voice of the voiceless. Meneer parker stop tryin to be smart here coz u knw u were raised by criminals whole stole black ppl's land.

      Ronald - 2011-11-16 16:07

      Ok, Lu, lets say that the "whites" stole the land from the black people, who in turn stole it from the Koisan who were clever enough to leave their signature(rock paintings) on as many cave walls as you would care to shake a stick at, sort of signing the "deed of sale" as it were. Where would you care to draw the line? Is that line where the result does not suit your agenda? That means you are a hypocrite.

      Charlotte - 2011-11-18 12:38

      If i have to read another one of these brainwashed losers comments, im really going to lose faith in the education system in south africa. Dude, LU, you guys F#$% up the land that you have, so what makes you think any more land is going to do any better?

  • chris.khanye - 2011-11-16 13:55

    You subjected yourself to a disciplinary hearing before and pleaded guilty - what's the difference between then and now? If you already knew the verdict, why then did you subject yourself to the humiliation? I was waiting for the usual rhetoric - the whole process was counter revolutionary. As if being a revolutionary is ANCYL monopoly. But then in malemaland everybody clutches at straws!

  • Olakunle - 2011-11-16 13:57

    THIS MALEMA DUDE IS JUST AN ANARCHIST THAT ANY SANE SOCIETY SHOULD NEVER ALLOW TO THRIVE HE HIS EVIDENTLY A RACIST AND MIND YOU I AM NIGERIAN ,A BLACK YORUBA MAN BUT EVEN WHEN A BLACK MAN HATES THE WHITE MAN AS MUSH AS HE DOES IT HAS NO NAME ITS PLAIN RACISM ...S.A HAD BETTER WATCH IT LEST THEY BREED ANOTHER IDI AMIN

    Very strong quotes from a determined person!

  • Wayne - 2011-11-16 14:10

    Dear Mr Jannie Momberg (New24 Editor) Please take Malema's power away and stop printing articles about him. No-one cares. Fuuuuuuu. Please. Cheers Wayne

      Rohin - 2011-11-17 09:52

      I think the fact that all the articles about him are the most read and most commented shows something. The fact is he is a news maker, for good or bad reasons, so it wouldn't make sense not to report on it.

  • Jeffrey - 2011-11-16 14:10

    "I've never been.....in government." What? Isn't the idiot appealing a decision to remove him from a political position? How does someone so stupid live this long without obliviously walking in front of a bus or something?

  • Moi - 2011-11-16 14:11

    Can't decide which is more laughable: juju's statements, or the comments from his followers in the posts above.

      Paul - 2011-11-16 14:54

      Definitely Juju's comments! If he didn't say anything none of us would be able to have a good laugh each day...

  • Dutchie - 2011-11-16 14:11

    "I've never had a formal job..." You so right no-one in their right mind will employ you as you’re un-employable O wait I forgot the ANCYL did and look at the k&k they have now….

  • Frank - 2011-11-16 14:12

    It felt good when you dealt with Masoga. You cry foul when things are not favouring you . That is hypocrisy at it's best. I've got nothing against him, he is a good comrade.But he must also learn to forgive others so that they can return the favour. The media also played it's part in misleading him to say he is powerful. If he is powerful then,why can't he leave the ANC and start his own political party. Stop wining and winging over nothing broer. U can still do good things for the poor outside politics if God called u to do so. U can repent and play a big role in the church.

  • Tshiamo - 2011-11-16 14:22

    Only in our country where a 30 year old can be comfortable in called a youth. There is need for the country to reduce its threshold for youth. The current one gives men in midlife crisis justify their immaturity.

      Ashleigh - 2011-11-16 15:02

      You are quite correct! According to Wikipedia the definition of YOUTH is: Youth is the time of life between childhood and adulthood (maturity). Definitions of the specific age range that constitutes youth vary. An individual's actual maturity may not correspond to their chronological age, as immature individuals could exist at all ages.

  • Tshiamo - 2011-11-16 14:24

    Next that joke of a "youth" magazine Loocha is going to go under as with Floyd Shivambu gone all the patronage advertisement are set to go. Companies won't see the need of currying favour with the empty tins!

  • Rob - 2011-11-16 14:31

    The rest of SA are also convinced that you will never ever know what you are doing Malema. Stay away and shut up.

  • Comrademayete - 2011-11-16 14:31

      Ja Michele dit is moontelik, maar dit is nie net blankes wat vir malema haat, so ek glo dit sal n bietjie tyd vat, maar wie weet

  • Aubrey - 2011-11-16 14:32

    its just a pity that people who dont have the courage to stand up for what is right stand on the sidelines and critisize others.. like it or not Malema s heart is in the right place and people dont want to acknowledge that.. his methods might be suspicious or questionable but atleast he is trying.. what are you doing to help give the poor some voice in this country full of economic injustice instead of being on Malema s back.. instead of hating him lets embrace and thank him for being brave and work with him to help him see other ways of approaching matters... he is fearless that makes him a courageous leader but he cant do it all alone so llets built him into the future leader he can become.. corruption allegations i believe that we must remember innocent untill proven guilty the very same way we did it for Mr Zuma we can do it for Mr Malema... I just hope he remains strong and millitant on his march for economic freedom because to some of us he is an inspiration

      frans.visserdsb - 2011-11-17 08:01

      Aubrey - the only way to achieve economic freedom in South Africa is by creating opportunities for people to work, by encouraging foreign investment. unfortunately taking money and land from whites and nationalising the mines will not achieve this. Did you know there are only 5.9 million taxpayers in SA? Did you know that the percentage of them earning in excess of R300 000 per year is only about 10% (600 000 people) So it is about 1% of the population - redistributing their wealth will not really help the poor... it will only make them poor too. The mines pay royalties for the minerals, and taxes on their profits. They barely make 5-10% profit after tax on capital employed... so how is that going to achieve economic freedom? Rather create work. educate our people - the main problem is that we waste money and our money is stolen by corrupt and inefficient politician and officials. Get this right and the country will prosper, and we will find work for everybody.

      Rohin - 2011-11-17 09:57

      He is a brave leader. And he claims to be to be for the people, and be one of them, but he isn't. The man can't be trusted. remember how he changes loyalties - he goes on about being born ANC and dying ANC - but he was against Thabo Mbeki, and pro Zuma, and not suddenly Zuma is this bad guy - so what's next. Now he's comparing himself to Nelson Mandela? He has every right to be rich, but he is a public figure, as the (ex) president of the ANCYL who supposedly earns less than 20k a month, then let him tell us how he has these millions if he's not involved in any shady deals. The fact is he's banking of the mob mentality of people to follow him blindly for that R50 they pay them as rent a crowd. His true strength and integrity will show over the next few weeks, if he fights a clean battle or if he runs crying about being a victim.

      Charlotte - 2011-11-18 12:45

      shut up malema

  • michael.jubiler - 2011-11-16 14:34

    Nice house for someone who's never had a formal job... I guess milking tenders pays off.

  • Pula - 2011-11-16 14:36

    @Kobus, brace yourself for making all you followers read your little IQ as to your comments concerning Malema. He is a fighter not a coward like you and many of coz. @Sean, shame on you morena...

      Charlotte - 2011-11-18 12:46

      fighter for what?

  • Paul - 2011-11-16 14:41

    Garden Boy???? LOL - how racist is he? He just complained about "people" calling their staff 'boys' on a SAFM radio interview this afternoon. Now he goes and uses it for himself about himself. The majority of people who can afford labour for their garden or home would refer to them as their 'gardener' I'm sure. This guy remains a buffoon due to his commitment to stupidity and one-side perception.

  • Elkita - 2011-11-16 14:44

    SA is a banana republic.Malema is the banana.

      Shaun - 2011-11-16 14:49

      I think you mean that malema is the chimp

  • Bongani - 2011-11-16 14:45

    We will win the battle. Malema is an individual and ANC is an organization. We all want nationalisation and economic freedom. Malema we are with you and most white people wish you were not suspended so that you can give support to DA, but we want you to go so that we have move votes from them.

      Shaun - 2011-11-16 14:57

      who is "we" ?

      Ashleigh - 2011-11-16 15:12

      Quote: "most white people wish you were not suspended" Please can you disclose the stats on your research regarding this "claim".

      Purpl3Pixi3 - 2011-11-16 18:15

      @bongani - honestly are you really this stupid????

      Charlotte - 2011-11-18 12:48

      WIN WHAT EFFING BATTLE, PROFESSOR?

  • Paul - 2011-11-16 14:46

    I just heard that the true-est and closest meaning of the word "UBUNTU' actually means that "one cannot allow another to have anything more than others have." If this is true then this ANC government has fooled us all completely and is living up to the words highest cultural meaning". It sure feels like it to me. Anyone else?

  • bothahe - 2011-11-16 14:47

    aaah... that explains why he doesn't have a grip on reality or the poverty problem. He never held down a job. He never had to work for what he has. Explains everything really...
