Shivambu due in court for hate speech

2011-12-07 07:18

Johannesburg - Suspended ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu will appear in the Johannesburg Equality Court for his hate speech hearing on Wednesday.

Shivambu has been accused of calling former Independent Newspaper journalist Carien du Plessis stupid and a "white bitch" in text messages.

Du Plessis alleged that in an SMS exchange between herself and Shivambu he wrote: "You must learn to respect people. I don't comment on YCL [Young Communist League] issues and please stop being stupid."

He also allegedly wrote: "I wouldn't want to earn respect from white bitches... so dream on."

Last month, Shivambu and his attorney Andries Nkome failed to appear in court.

Advocate Karabo Kgoroeadira applied for a postponement as Shivambu's papers had not been properly supplemented.

She said she would not proceed with the case without an instructing attorney.

      This is what happens when hoodlums (Julius & his friends) are allowed to infiltrate and take over an organisation. Out goes diplomacy, humility, professionalism and general manners. Let this be a warning to ANC. If you had minimum education requirements in place, these retards would not have even made it this far.

    Shivambu should buy himself some Cattle and join Juju now. We need to see the back of him.

      Felix - 2011-12-07 08:18

      Why buy when brother bob has so many stolen cattle to give him? I think he has served zanu-pf long enough to deserve a few.

  • qiniso.mngomezulu - 2011-12-07 08:32

    i dont think he could have called her thouse words without being provoked, i wonder what she said to hm

      Bryan - 2011-12-07 08:38

      @qiniso... You are kidding me right?? This is Floyd Shivambu we are talking about...2nd biggest motor mouth in the country, wake up!!

      Marion - 2011-12-07 13:55

      @qiniso.mngomezulu ... What has provocation got to do with it? That equates to saying that whenever a woman provokes a man he can say or do whatever he likes? Even if she did provoke him as you suggest, my mother always taught me that two wrongs don't make a right.

      John - 2011-12-07 21:54

      Excellent response. Everyone jumps on Qiniso. Becouse all she said that he has been provoked....Great !!! Why dont we ask a famous Carien du Plessis since when interviews are done via SMS and what was the primary topic in their conversation?.......that doesnt excludes that d* head like Shivambu went on racial statement as such. Get this correct. Is a human nature "not to accept any other opinion then ours"......Quiniso, Shivambu can be a compleate moron, but i want to know what exactly happen that night in May 2010. All 51 Votes against your opinion are becouse you think that he has been provoked. No one wants to know what Carein has to do with SMS to Shivambu....well done all of you...

  • Andre - 2011-12-07 08:56

    Such arrogance and racism! Him and his kind are surely from a different planet. Imagine if it was a white man saying this to a black female journalist!

  • Phumezo - 2011-12-07 08:58

    Another attempt by the media to derail our focus on real issues affecting the youth of this country! How is this case going to assist us in our cause of achieving economic freedom in our lifetime? Floyd is already suspended for this issue and what more does Mss Carien du Plessis want apart from being driven by hatred and obsession of the ANCYL secretary?

      Bryan - 2011-12-07 09:18

      Phumezo... Wake up dude, someone has stolen your biscuits and the coffee has gone cold..!! Economic freedom is a myth bro.., It doesn't exist. Try working hard instead of believing in pipe dreams!!

      Mike - 2011-12-07 09:28

      Phumezo, please refer us to the charge against Floyd that relates to economic freedom and that he was suspended for that. We all have access to the news so please don't just manufacture your own facts.

      Caaqil Mahadale - 2011-12-07 12:11

      @brian,mike, you still dreaming in a day light, the majority has already got their awareness , and they wanna repossess the remaining wealth , farms ,and mines , bcos you swallowed most of them during aparatheid.

      Mike - 2011-12-07 12:17

      Caaqil, you didn't answer my question. By the way blacks in this country particularly don't like your nationality and you are always the first point of call when it comes to xenephobia. You come from a country that no longer exists in political terms so you run here and presume to lecture us, phuckin joke you are!

  • Mashudu - 2011-12-07 09:53

    Another Rotten Potato. I keep on asking myself if ever ANCYL Checked any qualities In Shivambu and Malema B4 they elect them? ANCYL Don't You have wiser people than these idiots? These are just bunch of useless leaders.
