ANCYL calls for 'maximum discipline'

2011-08-30 12:29

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League condemned the burning of a T-shirt bearing a picture of President Jacob Zuma ahead of its president Julius Malema's disciplinary hearing on Tuesday.

"The ANCYL strongly condemns and dissociates itself from the burning of ANC T-shirts with the face of President Zuma," it said.

"We... call on those who are here to support the leadership to exercise maximum discipline and do so in a peaceful manner, regard and respect to the ANC process."

The league said it would never be associated with "unruly, disruptive elements and agents provocateurs".

Totally unacceptable - ANC

Earlier, ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said the violence was "totally unacceptable".

A Sapa photographer, Werner Beukes, and two eNews journalists, Belinda Moses and Cathy Mohlahlana, were pelted with stones.

"It flies in the face of what the leadership has called for - disciplined behaviour," Mthembu said as groups earlier tried to push towards ANC headquarters Luthuli House.

"It is not disciplined, and criminal. We have seen journalists being pelted. We have also seen even our police being pelted with stones, and all types of things.

"We are therefore saying this is unacceptable and we put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the ANCYL. We are very concerned."

The ANC appreciated police's role and called on them not to be provoked.

"They must ensure the safety and security of everyone within the city."

Situation under control

Gauteng police spokesperson Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said even though the groups were throwing objects and burning posters, they felt they had the situation under control.

"We have got enough members on the ground to contain the situation."

Earlier police used water canon trucks on the crowd as three helicopters hovered over the region of Beyers Naude Square and Luthuli House, situated on the corner of Sauer and President streets.

By mid-morning he said no arrests had been made, and no injuries reported.

Asked whether ANC leaders planned to go outside and address the crowds, Mthembu said: "We believe those that are responsible for bringing the people here should be responsible for that. The ball is in the court of the ANCYL leadership.

"The insults that are being thrown, the burning of posters, faces of our leadership that are on some posters, generally the unruly behaviour, cars being damaged ... that is totally un-ANC, you will not expect members of the ANC to do that. We cannot be quiet. They are tarnishing the image of the ANC."

    Too late. The ANC should call for maximum punishment for Malema shaming South Africa.

      Aish - 2011-08-30 12:37

      I agree tut... How did I know after all the damage was done today the ancyl would say these were criminals that jumped their well behaved rally.

      The nation agrees - and it should start with you, Youth League. Let's see if you really believe what you're saying - step up and take your punishment with dignity. And only say 'sorry' if you mean it...

      RonJeremy - 2011-08-30 12:40

      Do the ANCYL really believe their own BullSh##t ??? They bussed in their supporters, they armed them with rocks and bottles, the told them to burn ANC flags and T-shirts with the ANC president on them. Now they are trying to 'dissassociate' from the rioting ANCYL thugs ??? HAHAHAHA, the ANCYL are a complete joke !!!

      KingTshepo - 2011-08-30 12:42

      tut that is unfairt... malema had nothing to do with the thugs outside luthuli house burning things.... if a da member kills someone should we arrest Zille for this??? no it was not her doing... malema did not give orders for these guys to behave like this did he? if he did please bring the evidence so we can act accordingly.... In saying that i do say that now is the time for President Zuma to act and show leadership and discipline Malema on the current charges he is there for....

      Matt :-) - 2011-08-30 12:45

      If these actions were not sanctioned by Malema; or if he hates these actions; he would make a plan to PERSONALLY appear in public to openly condemn them. Even if he were in court, they could make a few minutes gap so that he can tell his followers to stop doing this in person. But he hasn't...

      Megan - 2011-08-30 12:49

      Tshepo, as leader of the ANC Youth League he is ultimately responsible to answer for the action of said youth league. That's how it works when you lead a group of people. Your analogy of "if a da member murders someone should Zille be arrested for it" is a bit on the ridiculous side as we are not asking Malema to account for the actions of an individual but for a group of individuals who, at the end of the day, fall under his leadership. But all your comment has done is confirm the fact that leadership is something you do not understand.

      Zizo Snr - 2011-08-30 12:49

      Malema will be much more powerful if he is expelled, and Zuma will see red in mangaung either way.

      RonJeremy - 2011-08-30 12:50

      @QueenTshepo - the first rule of debate - have a point. Secondly, learn to apply logic. The ANCYL rioters in the streets are a 100% reflection of their ANCYL leadership. What you are seeing today in JHB CBD, is what Malema and Floyd stand for. Total anarchy and disrespect for the elders of the ANC.

      zena - 2011-08-30 12:52

      The difference King Tshepo is that ZILLE will come out and condone what is happening and will take steps to ensure that it does not happen, and then again we will not stand by someone who is corrupt, evil, racist, no my friend we will not support a MADMAN who only cares for himself and could not care a f*@k about you after all this, no, he will sit in his Sandton house, drinking his western wine, relaxing on his western couch, watching his western TV, laughing at how he fooled you all in supporting him, knowing that tomorrow you will still be poor and wanting.....

      RonJeremy - 2011-08-30 12:52

      @ Zizo - oh please. I would love to see what Malema and Floyd could do without that ANC badge and membership number. They are useless without the emotional brand strength of the ANC and they know it. That's why they keep saying they will accept the discipline of the ANC cause they need the ANC. But the ANC DOES NOT need them.

      zena - 2011-08-30 12:56

      Forgot to mention that he must take the blame, who sent the buses out to gather up these people, that was propaganda at its best!!! If those buses were not sent then this would not have happened, again the coward ways comes to the front, cannot stand alone and face the music, must have a crowd behind him.

      "The ANCYL strongly condemns and dissociates itself from the burning of ANC T-shirts with the face of President Zuma," it said. These are your supporters, these are the people you attract and who you say you speak for. You can’t now disown them, it’s what you have created, what you stand for and what you have preached you ANCYL bunch of lowlifes.. nothing but a cancer. Let’s hope it’s not too late for extraction and radiation treatment.

      He KingTshepo - Zuma was clever, took himself and his deputy off to Norway I am told. So if Radebe does nothing, Zuma can wash his hands off the whole affair, and cluck cluck his disappointment. I'll bet you R10 000 to R1 that Malema instigated this with his henchman, and then he will come afterwards and express his disappointment. They're all a bunch of liars.

      DW - 2011-08-30 13:22

      Funny how they are against this anarchy and violence, but they were the ones who burst into a meeting of the top ANC leadership - which is one of the charges for which they are being disciplined today. Either you respect the ANC, or you dont. The ANCYL leadership clearly does not. That is the message they have sent to their followers by their own actions. What did they really expect?

      GypseyAnn - 2011-08-30 13:22

      @ King Tshepo - I see you name may have changed, but your idiotic ideas as well as your mug shot have not! Get real!!!!

      tkotze - 2011-08-30 13:32

      Tshepo, consistency is the way you create stability and retain control. Malema on numerous occasions referred to and called for military and aggressive actions from his members. In normal circumstances, sure, you can't blame the leader of an organisation for things the members do, but while Malema is perpetuating harmful and physical actions and refer to military action he is breeding the actions shown and are therefore responsible. ANCYL referred to leader having to be beyond approach. This is another case where Malema failed in regards to his members which is now a menace to society. He is not beyond approach since he made mistakes. Basically, if you preach military action you should be willing to accept the consequences...

      Virginia - 2011-08-30 14:13

      @King Tshepo, yes he does have evything to do with it, everyday he is telling the youth that they own SA that SA is theirs and to make sure that SA stay theirs. The youth is not the governments problem, their parents are, and its about time Malema and Cosatu atarted to fight for their existence in this country, so that they can demand respect from their children. Our youth especiall the majority of our Black youth are easily intimidated by violence, its easier then going to school and being a decent person. Never ever say that Malem is not the problem, he is and its time his wings were clipped, if not by the ANC then by someone else.

      @Grant I guess only Siener van Rensburg knows. You can be sure that the ANCYL will deny responsibility for what we have witnessed... maybe even blame rogue elements from other parties. Seems to me that there is no accountability when things go wrong... just denial upon denial.

      If they can't go outside and manage their followers, then the Youth League leadership are not fit to fill that position. Same goes for the ANC - if they can't amange the Youth League, then they cannot possibly run an entire nation.

      Quite ironic that the behaviour is condemned by the ANC, yet it is EXACTLY this kind of behaviour that toppled Mbeki and put Zuma in the chair.

We are tired of Malema saying and doing what he wants, but does not get disciplined, when Mr. Mandela was the President of R.S.A. there was not any of this, maybe we must go back to the Mandela regime. Malema must be punished and removed from any form of politics within the ANC. He makes himself rich, and his own people are suffering from poverty. It is not too late to discipline him and he must be, when disciplined, be an example to other youth if you disobey, you get punished.

    Isnt it amazing that the ancyl always calls for discipline and when there is none they will next say there was an outside element causing the mayhem. Please,who do you think you are fooling-you knew this would happen and its what was wanted.There is no discipline in the ancyl-and malema has the cheek to hold himself in the same catagory as mandela when he was in the ancyl! The only thing the ancyl is showing is the horrific future of violent,outof control,mob mentality youth who were supposed to be the future of this country!Now you see why it is that the whole of africa is in such chaos! The worst is no one has the backbone or inteligence to stand up and sya enough is enough! Mr Mandela-i know you are in your golden years but if ever you needed to save your people its now!

Malema has no idea what he is doing, and is thriving on the anger he and his YL affliates are instilling. The YL is getting out of control, and something needs to be done. Soon! Otherwise we can kiss this beautiful country goodbye. Remove Malema from the ANC completely, and we will have our democracy, and a functional, peaceful country.

      Comparing Malema and Hitler is not fair on Hitler. Hitler managed to write/complete an entire book/manifesto - can you picture malema even managing to read one page of a book?

    ANCYL calls for maximum discipline when the crowd gathered to support their ill discipline...eish how much is that ticket to Australia again. SA politics is a joke...they taken your attention from what is really happening behind the scenes

    The ANC had failed since 1994 the first priority should have been Education first and the rest will follow, allowing youth with matric to join the organisation, allow them to enrol at the leadership academy failure to do so shall be dismissed then we can have discipined leader not the current illdisciplined idiots.

      Amen, Hasane. Great post!

    @Jhb City Council: Don't forget to forward invoice for cleanup and damages to Mr J Malema tomorrow

  • CPII - 2011-08-30 13:04

    Hey guys, do tell. Do you think this may be the split of the ANC in two factions? If so, what percentage of followers will each faction have?

  • Ingie - 2011-08-30 13:04

    what a waste of time and our police force could be somewhere where they are needed more. He is not our President and why all this fuss because he been disciplined. @ you mean to tell me Malema had NOTHING to do with the violence etc etc what utter rubbish. he most probably arranged it. Once a crook always a crook and you all bow down to him. Just remember you get what you ask for and where is your wonderful Mr Zuma and the deputy Minister...out of town of course trying to fix other country's problem when he cant fix his own. Typical,!!!! never around when needed.

    Funny how Julius Malema is always on about struggling with the poor people and how he always goes on how "us" white people will only know how bad the poor life is once we are in the shoes of the black man......BTW nice shoes Julius...Are they PRADA????

  • coswecanfly - 2011-08-30 13:04

    So now they are calling their own supporters "agents provocateurs"... They are sooooooo sad...

  • The Observer - 2011-08-30 13:04

    know this is stating the obvious, but before n24 removed my post yesterday, I told you so. Hooligans the lot of you yl narre. Now sganja, john and the other imbeciles from yesterday what say you now?

  • Arno van der Merwe - 2011-08-30 13:06

    It looks like in the 80's, so what has actually changed except government?

  • Neo - 2011-08-30 13:07

    "unruly, disruptive elements and agents provocateurs". - The core definition of their own leader.

  • Jonathan - 2011-08-30 13:07

    You can't distance yourself now from your supporters. You've asked them to come to Luthuli House to show their support and that's exactly what they've done; this is what you wanted and you should suffer the condequences...if there are any? The ANC is imploding because of the lack of leadership...what can we expect when we are lead by CRIMINALS!

  • BHiggins - 2011-08-30 13:07

    With the ridicule we made of the GB riots, I wonder if what they are thinking of us?

  • Smiley - 2011-08-30 13:08

    Beginning of the end for ANC - it does not matter how you look at it; either Malema will fade or Zuma will go out with a bang. Look at the history - major in-fighting in a political party means the end are near. Very good news as the current goverment obviously does not care for it's people.

  • Bok Fan - 2011-08-30 13:09

    The Zumaficatiion of South Africa was predicted when the slob league came out threatening to kill for an (alleged) (hahahahahahah) criminal to get off the charges against him. Now people like Jackdanielson want to come over all sanctimonious and deplore exactly what THEY CREATED. The anc stands naked before its own constituencies and its not a pretty sight. Viva DA Viva

  • MattQ4 - 2011-08-30 13:09

    ..."They are tarnishing the image of the ANC".... Ha ha ha... mwahahahaha!! HA HAHA HAAA!!! I'm sorry.. I think I may have pee'd a little..

  • MuscleGrunt - 2011-08-30 13:10

    Ron Jeremy - do you have nothing better to do? Perhaps you should go drown yourself with b-grade 80's porn until this matter has been settled. I think you've made your point by now. Ron Jeremy indeed.

  • Rob Gunning - 2011-08-30 13:12

    Of course you can expect ANCYL members to break, destory and run amok. This is what they do. It's been proved time and time again since the 1940's. They are a terrorist organisation that pay lip service once the evil deed is done.
