ANC must act on Malema - Azapo

2011-08-05 18:04

Johannesburg - The ANC must act swiftly on ANC Youth League president Julius Malema following his comments about Botswana's regime change, the Azanian People’s Organisation (Azapo) said on Friday.

"In as much as we agree with the ANC that no country, organ of any state, or structure within any country should engage, or contemplate engaging in regime change (in another country)," spokesperson Funani ka Ntontela said.

"Regime change by foreign agents not only destabilise the country and its economy, but leads to sustained illegitimacy of the ‘sponsored’ regime."

Ntontela said it was sad that the three main opposition parties in Botswana were "tantalised" by the idea of toppling their democratic government by outside influences.

Malema 'out of control'

Earlier this week Malema said league would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties as it believed the government there was "in full co-operation with imperialists" and was undermining the African agenda.

The ANCYL was publicly criticised by its mother body, the ANC - first by spokesperson Jackson Mthembu and then by secretary general Gwede Mantashe.

The ANC rebuked the ANCYL on "its extremely thoughtless and embarrassing pronouncements on 'regime change' in Botswana".

This was a total deviation from and an affront to ANC policy, it said.

In the past Malema had made statements that were demeaning and politically detrimental, Ntontela said.

"We [Azapo] think this is so because the ANC has created this beast called Malema, and allowed it to grow out of control.

"In our view, sometimes the ANC does not seem to know whether Malema is ANC Youth League leader, ANC leader or a government official," he said.

Azapo said Malema had the potential to be larger than the ANC and so it had to act on his statement.

      Zuma is still cowering in the corner with his tail between his legs from the scary drink that almost got spilled on him.

      THE.SRG - 2011-08-05 18:33

      Boet...you just showed the level of intelligence of his followers...i dont have to say anymore,thanks

      Jamba - 2011-08-05 18:40

      @ Shonisani - The cheapest topic (possibly the easiest to get publicity) is racism, landgrabs and nationalism of mines. Get you president to talk about economics, maths and humanrights. Those topics require a bit more thinking than the normal person.

      Al Chemist - 2011-08-05 18:45

      I think you have just proven the complete lack of intelligence of his followers

      Wizard101 - 2011-08-05 18:52

      @ Jamba please do not forget woodwork

      fraidycat - 2011-08-05 19:00

      Shonisani, your complete lack of coherence simply shows what kind of problem we actually face! Wake up, this tinpot dictator will make beggars of you yet again.

      iranianprince - 2011-08-05 22:40

      Lol Jamba don't use such big words like Maths and economics, the beetle will fall out the entire cANCer nec left ear.u must tork ike a red soxes. Malema when dealing with SARS demanded to see Vuyo's returns, he can't believe that Vuyo can have a 'big boat' from selling boerewors

      gatvol4corru - 2011-08-05 22:48

      geez -- the colonial schools did not help much with your vocabulary! If you have not noticed,the cartoons appear in the newspapers each day and in headlines. Sadly,the characters have more brain-cells then you and your corrupt comrade combined

      AcesHigh - 2011-08-06 00:52

      Thanks for the sms Shonisani M

      Harry Potter could'nt save South Africa, these ANC arsewipes are far more powerful than Voldermort.

  • Serias - 2011-08-05 18:34

    malema reminds me of a fat turd, with escaping gas particles,......that means he's supporters are all TURD lovers!!!!!!!!!!

      THE.SRG - 2011-08-05 18:39

      the old shower head is bending down to wash the poephol(malema)

      fraidycat - 2011-08-05 19:02

      A very expensively, yet comically, dressed turd! He cannot even choose pants that fit, he cannot do woodwork, but he can use the simply dumb masses to follow him over a cliff...

  • Alvin - 2011-08-05 18:38

    yep,it seems everyone has rebuked Juju except Zuma..where are u Mr President..Time to take a tough stand against this demented mainiac..before its too late..

  • sipholess - 2011-08-05 18:55

    If Zuma became president,............ Malema could be president. Scary but true.

  • fraidycat - 2011-08-05 18:56

    Malema is an ANC made monster, completely out of control. The ANC will have to muzzle him very quickly, as it looks like globally we are heading for a new economic slump - so we in Africa do not need yet another tinpot dictator, like Malema to make matters even worse for us all in Africa. Just confirms once and for all that Zuma is no leader!

  • Mercenary - 2011-08-05 19:17

    PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ......CAN we stop entertaining the Malama virus!!!!!!!!!!!! It is consuming al of our mind , body and soul. That is what they (and Malema) want you dumbnutts. They want us to live in fear. By God People; free your minds from this pest. Start focusing on living.

      THE.SRG - 2011-08-05 19:35

      ok...lets not worry about him till its too late,good plan

      Mercenary - 2011-08-05 19:42

      @SRG what are you doing about him????? Sit and worry in your house...complain to your friends...make silly comments on news 24?? Slowly but surely dying of the Malama virus. Wasting away. Do something then.

      sipholess - 2011-08-05 19:46

      When he becomes president, you will realise there is no God !!!!

      Mercenary - 2011-08-05 19:52

      @sipholess That is not a conversation I will have with you. Exept that is the age old communist way... break religion, education,economy and thereby hope. Hope shall not be taken away from me sonny boy!!!!!!

      THE.SRG - 2011-08-05 20:25

      Hey,a little silliness brings a bit of humour to the subject,as for what im doing about it,nothing!,i have given up since i cant get a job in my preferred field due to B.E.E and A.A so im heading to the UK where they appreciate hard working fellows,but ont worry,i'll be back with the UN when the sheeet hits the fan lol...now pls pull your head out of the sand or your @ss instead of ignoring the problem here in SA,it doest help to ignore the subject as you will just be the one to get nailed by surprise!

      THE.SRG - 2011-08-05 20:29

      ignoring a problem doesn't make it go away...dealing with it does...i don't feel like dealing with it so i am heading to greener pastures,good luck with turning a blind eye to it lol

  • Voorvel - 2011-08-05 19:40

    Kenako !! This is the time we blacks must act! We are making fools of ourselves allowing a moron to dictate. He was NEVER part of the struggle and a disgace to ourMadiba! To think that MaWeto called him the new Mandela! He must be removed from society. Amen.

      Wizard101 - 2011-08-05 20:42

      So voorvel what is your suggestion?

  • Monica - 2011-08-05 20:41

    I agree with you; but when the President stands next to this Malema on TV; you know that they are both in one box!

  • Voorvel - 2011-08-05 20:47

    Cancell his exposure in public, Dog!

  • Sceptic - 2011-08-06 20:57

    Zuma Zoom, time to get out of the shower and do some work!

  • lisa hampton - 2011-08-07 02:37

    Like it or not,in the future Malema is going to wind up being the South African President. Whites do not understand anything. They just live in their own little world and believe everyone should follow them. Not everyone is impressed with capitalism. It is creating problems all over the world. The west is in decline and capitalism is the reason why. Stop trying to spread your cancerous ways on the rest of the world.
