ANC created 'Malema monster'

2011-06-20 22:32
Bloemfontein - The ANC and President Jacob Zuma's reluctance to discipline ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has led to his recent comments and actions the past weekend, the Freedom Front Plus Youth said on Monday.

FF Plus youth leader Jan van Niekerk said Malema’s comments on nationalisation and that white capitalism was the enemy, would lead to race polarisation and economic instability in southern Africa.

“The ANC has raised a monster which they cannot control. The bigger it gets the less they will be able to control it,” said Van Niekerk in a statement.

He said Malema’s statements on white capitalism being the enemy and white people stealing land from blacks was nothing but racist.

“It speaks a lot of what is going on [in] the mind of the ANC voter.”

He said the ANC Youth League’s radical views on the nationalisation of mines and banks and the proposed handling of the land issue was nothing but a “Robert Mugabe attitude”.

Van Niekerk said if the ANC did not discipline Malema on his statements, the rest of the world would interpret it as party policy.

“The ANC and its leaders seem to be too scared to discipline Malema and this could have far reaching consequences for South Africa,” said Van Niekerk.
