Julius Malema quoted

2012-02-29 22:41

Johannesburg - A selection of quotes by Julius Malema, who has been expelled from the ANC.  

---

"We are guilty of thinking." (February 10 2012 at an ANCYL lekgotla.)

---

"The succession battle should be discussed without fear or favour. It should not be a taboo topic." (February 10 2012, ANCYL lekgotla.)

---

"We did not commit anything wrong against the movement. The only thing we did was to speak about how the land must be restored to its original owners." (February 10 2012, ANCYL lekgotla.)

---

"If there was any form of consistency, those who were attending meetings of the ANC under the influence of alcohol and some of those who were arrested for drinking and driving should have been subjected to disciplinary processes." (February 10 2012, ANCYL lekgotla, referring to the arrest for drunken driving of ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu.)

---

"I am not here to speak... President [Jacob] Zuma will speak on behalf of all of us. He was elected, whether we like him or not." (January 6 2012, ahead of the ANC centenary gathering in Mangaung.)

---

"I will not leave politics. I will never leave politics... I found a new hobby in cattle farming." (December 1 2011.)

---

"The ANC Youth League will also establish a Botswana command team, which will work towards uniting all oppositional forces in Botswana to oppose the puppet regime of Botswana, led by the Botswana Democratic Party." (August 1 2011, as read out at a meeting in Boksburg.)

---

"The BDP is a footstool of imperialism, a security threat to Africa and always under constant puppetry [sic] of the United States." (August 1 2011, Malema reading from an ANCYL statement in Boksburg.)

---

"Botswana is in full co-operation with imperialists... and the government is undermining the African agenda... We are not going to sit with neighbours that conduct themselves like that." (July 31 2011.)

---

"Mbeki is the best leader the ANC has ever produced. There are those who hated him with a passion but forgot that Mbeki, during his leadership, had produced a two-thirds majority during elections." (June 6 2011.)

---

"Those who hate [Thabo] Mbeki are jealous of his achievements. He was the most educated and clever." (June 6 2011.)

---

"Don't burn the flag of the ANC. That is who we are... we cannot burn ourselves, especially the black, green and gold. You are here because you love the ANC. We must exercise restraint." (August 30 2011, after a flag was burned near Luthuli House, where his disciplinary hearing was being held.)

---

"Peace and unity should prevail until the conclusion. We are disciplined members of the organisation [ANC] and respect the leadership." (August 29 2011, before Luthuli House riot.)

---

"You can arrest me, but you can't arrest my ideas." (July 31 2011.)

---

"If you are not careful, you will be led by the masses." (June 19 2011 during an address on the urgent need for economic change.)

---

"We must not be technical about our leaders. We need to be honest about them. Once you suppress that, the leaders will find that they have left the people behind, exactly what happened in Polokwane." (June 19 2011.)

---

"We are carrying your mandate and we will protect the policy on the nationalisation of mines. We will rather be expelled protecting it." (June 19 2011, to league members.)

---

"An elder who is irritated by kids is a problem for me." (June 14 2011.)

---

"We don't want anything from Zuma. We don't expect any reward. He is the president of the African National Congress and the country. He is uncontested. There is no attack [on the presidency] whatsoever from the ANCYL." (June 14 2011.)

---

"There is one president of the ANC and that is President Zuma. He is uncontested... if you [do not] want to suffer political humiliation, you must not even think about contesting President Zuma between now and the 2012 conference of the ANC." (June 9 2011.)

---

"When he concludes his term of office he will enjoy the respect as a former president... Whether he finishes his term in 2012 or after two terms, it's immaterial." (June 9 2011.)

---

"The youth has brought excitement into the politics of South Africa." (June 14 2011.)

---

"We have seen close friends of us, turning against us, we have seen enemies of this collective becoming close friends as we were soldiering on, because we knew in politics there are no permanent friends and there are no permanent enemies." (June 9 2011.)

---

"We have had to grow very fast." (June 9 2011.)

    Well done News24. This type of article is usually only put up when someone has died. Love it!

      Kolobe - 2012-03-01 06:06

      malema's orbituary?e come on he is 30 and wishing him away doesnt mean diminish into thin air. to get rid of malema you have to get rid of the black youth from south africa

      Consolata Connie Lodya - 2012-03-01 06:59

      @ irene. I kinda feel that way, except that I think that we have lost one of our brightest comedians. My favourite quote... "I will never commit suicide, I would rather kill myself than commit suicide." who can forget the laughter this boy has brought to our lives.

      An excellent example of a oxymoron (some say that Oxy should be banned)

      procold2 - 2012-03-01 08:17

      @consolata, these are the things i am going to miss, i think will will still have a few laughs over the next couple days "oh" and when sars and the hawks nail him we should get a few more

      procold2 - 2012-03-01 08:18

      @ kolobe, not all, only oaks like you.

      agoosen - 2012-03-01 13:11

      @kolobe: NOW you're talking! I agree with you one hundred percent. We must now work towards this goal...get the youth working in stead of sitting and waiting for your "leaders" promises to become reality. Their great-grandchildren will still be jobless if they wait for the anc to change their lives...

      He should be nominated for a Darwin award.

  • cosmos.ndebele - 2012-02-29 22:54

    I doubt if this guy will really vanish from the radar. His nemisis are celebrating, it might be too early. Mark my words!!!

      deabreu - 2012-03-02 07:44

      This May be True as Sad as it is. Hitler was a hero to "his" people too, murdering jewish people who did nothing wrong, the african innocents and many others, but he was a hero to "his" people who saw nothing wrong in what he did as well. The world even held the 1936 Summer Olympics in Nazi Germany while he tortured and murdered milions. A "hero" of his time.

  • Makiba - 2012-02-29 22:57

    Malema will always be out of control, im glad He is out. We cannot afford to be led by people with no foundation. Learn respect and people will respect you. He will now be able to take care of his father (Motho ke motho ka Batho). Papago o go swere ka pelo. If you respect GOD otla hlompha Mmago le Papago and Malema never did. Amon

      Sinudeity - 2012-03-01 12:55

      What a stupid response,how is anybody expected to respect a father he has never known?

      and yet he's accumulated MORE than you'll ever do even in your next life. just wonder how do you meassure being "smart"

  • hiebner - 2012-02-29 23:26

    He was a convenient diversion....now we can refocus.

  • Jacques - 2012-02-29 23:34

    what an contradicting Idiot. Reminds me of Goerge Bush 4) "They misunderestimated me." —Bentonville, Ark., Nov. 6, 2000 3) "Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?" —Florence, S.C., Jan. 11, 2000 2) "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." —Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004 (Watch video clip; listen to audio clip) 1) "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." —Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002

      Michael - 2012-02-29 23:50

      Hehehehehe. Bush was one of my favourites too, who's worse tho? You choose: "we uh geelty of theenking" or "most of our imports come from outside the US"

      heinrich.crouse - 2012-03-01 00:07

      Point out the contradiction in Malema's quotes. Being guilty of thinking is a good thing (try it - you will be judged harshly, but the rewards are legion). Most of our imports DO come from outside the US.

      Marion - 2012-03-01 05:20

      Thanks for reminding us what a twit Bush was. Scariest of all is that he made it all the way to the White House.

      Jacques - 2012-03-01 08:52

      @Heinrich "I am not here to speak... President [Jacob] Zuma will speak on behalf of all of us. He was elected, whether we like him or not." (January 6 2012, ahead of the ANC centenary gathering in Mangaung. Contridicting statmement since he was talking "I will not leave politics. I will never leave politics... I found a new hobby in cattle farming." (December 1 2011.) He stated should he be expelled he will become a farmer. Yet he states he will not leave poletics What about stating Mbeki was the worst and Jacob Zuma the best and one year later he swapped his opinion Heinrich "Most of our imports come from outside the US" Seriously cant you see the problem with the obvious. Just you agreeing tells me you are not who you state you are. It fact it actualy makes more sense than your comment "try it you will be judged harshley, but rewards are legion" man that makes a lot of sense well done.

      John - 2012-03-01 08:59

      @ Marion... and there may be a lesson in there.

      Jacques - 2012-03-01 09:02

      @Heinrich what about him being the champion for the poor yet he has no clue what a champion for the poor means The most ironic thing was him always calling on white racist or the far right but yet the only difference between him an ET was colour as they acted the same from oppesite ends. His leadership never lead education. It never led to building unity. He never spoke about building skills. It never tought hard work. It never intended to heal or allow for different opinion. He could never hold an argument without insults showing his inept ability to reason. He was always talking about taking instead of building. He was always about what is owed instead of what should be offered

  • Tshepo Matabane - 2012-02-29 23:43

  • Mzwakhe Mnguni - 2012-02-29 23:56

    what a philosopher!!!

      Irene - 2012-03-01 00:19

      If you think that's philosophical, I'd hate to think what you'd classify an 'intellectual' as. Bwahahahahha

      michael.liebenberg - 2012-03-01 07:55

      And you are probably a rocket scientist. :P

  • Lourens - 2012-02-29 23:58

    WOW! At least there is concrete proof that he now just needs to be neutered as well to ensure none of this stupidity gets passed down!

  • heinrich.crouse - 2012-03-01 00:03

    I thought it would be funnier. This makes him look quite erudite and wise.

  • Rinus - 2012-03-01 00:11

    Can someone explain the "he can appeal within 14 days"?

      Sylvester Mohloli - 2012-03-01 06:43

      he can appeal the sentence (Expulsion), not the verdict (Guilt), because he has already done that , when the NDCA sent the case back to the NDC, they upheld the guilty verdict, and only gave him an opportunity to mitigate the initial sentence (suspension)

      godesha - 2012-03-01 06:54

      Thanks Sylvester, it makes more sense now.

      Amanda - 2012-03-01 13:44

      Yes, some things I also do not understand, EXPEL and APPEAL, I thought this was finish and klaar !

  • Stuart - 2012-03-01 06:44

    my fav is the one, not mentioned here, about Castor Semenya "HE is a woman!" Regretfully this divider is not done and will probably bounce back as a very senior MP in the next election.

  • Yolanda - 2012-03-01 07:40

    they should have compiled quotes from 2009 - 2012. it would have been nice/ entertaining to see the contradictions (re his relationship with Mbeki and Zuma).

    8 April 2010: MALEMA: This is a revolutionary house. And you don't come here with that tendency. Don't come here with that white tendency. MALEMA: Come out. Go out. Bastard. Go out. You bloody agent. Maybe this can be seen as racist remarks. I don't know...

  • jannie.beirowski - 2012-03-01 08:42

    How come nobody has even thought of the poor cattle that will be spending their time with him when he practises his new hobby? I hope the SPCA are aware of his new hobby and protect the poor bulls, cows and calves!

  • Wicus - 2012-03-01 08:46

    And the things he was too afraid to say. "She's a nobody, she's a tea girl of the madam. I'm not debating with the service of the madam" Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems that he found it hard to speak to people that was allowed to speak back.

  • John - 2012-03-01 08:55

    "I will not leave politics. I will never leave politics... I found a new hobby in cattle farming." What a name to call your dumb followers... I would have preferred sheep. "We have had to grow very fast." Blame KFC "An elder who is irritated by kids is a problem for me." An elder who does not discipline kids is a problem to me..

    Moegoe of the week:Julius Malema This moegoe gets expelled by the movement and still says ""I am a soldier who is prepared to die in a battle. Even if I am expelled from the ANC my blood will remain black, gold and green. I am prepared to do blood tests to prove that," How dumb do you have to be not to understand expulsion. Its over madala look for another organisations to undermine and disrespect moegoe !
