'ANCYL saved Zuma from prison'

2012-07-01 10:44

Johannesburg - The ANCYL saved President Jacob Zuma from a prison sentence, expelled league president Julius Malema claims in an interview published in the Sunday Times.

Malema was not convinced the "spy tapes", cited as the reason that corruption charges against Zuma were dropped in 2008, really existed.

"Actually, we went to fetch him from a prison door," Malema said.

According to Malema, Zuma "does not have what it takes" to serve as president and the thought of another term for Zuma was "scary and traumatic".

Having once proclaimed that he would "kill for Zuma", he apologised for endorsing a Zuma presidency, claiming it was "a mistake" on the part of the league.

The ANCYL's support for Zuma was based on his apparent "courage" against then-president Thabo Mbeki's bid for a third term in office.

"That courage was very personal. It was informed by personal fear of being arrested and going to prison."

Malema claimed Zuma had "nothing to lose" because he knew if he became president "chances are that you will not be arrested".

Malema said both Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale had the qualities necessary for the presidency. The ANC elects its new leaders at its elective conference in Mangaung in December.

    If Zuma doesn't become president again, Malema might come back. But the thought of Zama coming back is traumatic. WE ARE SO SCREWED!

      Sharon - 2012-07-01 11:50

      @ themba,perhaps you should have listened to Mandela,out of all the wanna be presidents out there perhaps ramaphosa wouldnt have been such a bad choice

      mzansi.afrika - 2012-07-01 11:56

      Anyone in the driving seat of the ANC car will still be chauffeuring the party's policies. Be it Motlante or Sexwale, the resultant will still be same mess we are faced with right now. So yes, we are indeed SCREWED?

      jack.oosthuysen - 2012-07-01 11:57

      I dont think Zuma will return the favour. Malema will go to jail soon.

      Everybody is missing the point here. The core issue remains – the ANC and the people who vote for the ANC. The ANC and the people who vote for the ANC are the enemies of the future of South Africa. There is NO future for SA under the ANC – period. The ANC and the people who vote for them will not be removed through voting – the only people who dispute this are the DA’s officials getting a state/municipal salary; they do this for same greed-filled reasons as the ANC. There are several options to create a future in SA – here is one: - The Cape Province must make a Unilateral Declaration of Independence. - It must form a strategic alliance with Botswana, the USA and the UK (if not the entire NATO). - The Northern Cape will fall quickly. This will form the Republic of the Cape. - All the businesses (supposedly in the hands of whites and specifically white males) will move to Cape Town from Gauteng (etc). - This will economically drain the central- and eastern parts of (the previous) South Africa and it will collapse in a matter of months – if not days. Together with Zimbabwe it will become the poorest place/s on earth. At worst people will starve to death in millions (while a small black elite lives in absolute wealth – the same as in Zim). Alternatively it will become a satellite slave-state of China and the people may not die of starvation – but will live in slavery worse than under Apartheid.

      Viva the Republic of the Western Cape, I am happy to see that the idea is gaining acceptance. There must be something that could be done to save us from the ANC. We civilized people cannot be ruled by such a bunch of clowns end end up in the dwang like the rest of Africa. The Western Cape could be our Israel, time to make a stand and time to make this happen fowks

      siyanda.myende - 2012-07-01 14:30

      Really Claudia?! /Small black elite/, so every hard working successful black person is assumed to be corrupt and has connection with the ANC. How is your thinking any better than that of an ignorant person who thinks every white person is racist for having an opinion? If your idea about the Cape were to be a reality, the Cape will be worst of than it's current state. With more people wanting to move there, it will sky rocket the property value. Some people born there won't be able to afford to live there. Naturally they'd also be poor people seeking refugee there. Inequality would take a whole new meaning there. Basically, your idea will never work.

      Marco - 2012-07-01 14:52

      know what you mean. as much as i hate to say it "better devil you know"

      devon.riley.52 - 2012-07-01 15:02

      @siyanda there are many examples of breakaway states internationally. It can be done. By the way property prices are dictated by supply and demand. Although the market would be initially swamped, construction companies will jump in and fill the gaps in the market. A construction boom like you have never seen before :)

      siyanda.myende - 2012-07-01 15:31

      Devon, Claudia is not only suggesting a break away state. She's also suggesting that businesses move from Gauteng to the Cape, so everyone else would starve. These businesses owned by white people, I'm guessing she can't imagine a successful business owned by a black person. And yes, demand does affect the prices of property. The demand would be very high with all these wealthy business men looking for their piece of the Cape. See where I'm going with this? Don't let your obsession of wanting to be exclusive and away from the common man stop you from thinking logically.

      denise.ryan.5203 - 2012-07-01 17:55

      And as long as the ANC's counts the votes… what is anyone going to do about it? Even if the ANC would lose an election, they will lie and cheat just like Mugabe to stay in power forever. Ballot boxes full of ANC votes will rain down from heaven. Long dead ANC cadre names will divinely appear on voter rolls, etc. Stalin, the Communist God, once said that the outcome of elections are not determined by those who vote, but by those who count the votes. The ANC will never willingly relinquish power. They will murder, intimidate and Toi-toi to stay in power. We should get out of the country or prepare ourselves for at least another five years of Communist rule under which we might die, get raped or tortured. That other Communist God, Mao Zedong, said that “Power grows out of the barrel of a gun”. That is the only way we will ever regain power in South Africa, not at the election box. You will have to shoot the Communists out of power.

      downwiththeANC - 2012-07-01 18:21

      VIVA Western Cape. It does need to be declared an independent state where compeptent people can live and build a future and not be afraid of the shennagans of the ANC. The ANC spent R40 million on a 4 day conference and they did what exactly? They partied, that is what they did. Viva DA run independent state VIVA. We don't need the ANC!

      mihaip007 - 2012-07-01 23:50

      If i were a malema supporter and actually used SOME neurons, my question to him would be: If you were SO WRONG about the spear president, then why on earth would you be right NOW abut Kgalema and Sexuale??? how can one believe one who supported like a blind idiot a dictator in the making? LUCKILY I am NOT a supporter of malema hahaha!

      mbambo.shi - 2012-07-02 08:49

      You people are starting to forget that in Africa you're refugees or settlers. Should the Apartheid government didn't assassinates those who were willing to evict you out of Africa, like Hani and his other combrades from the rest of Africa, you'll all be gone. You're all intolerant and take Blacks too shallow.

      kevin.tonder - 2012-07-02 10:27

      @Mbambo.shi - you say we are "all intolerant". A very broad sweeping genralisation, no? I assume that you have spoken to "all" of us or do you assume "all" of us comment on News24? So we are settlers? We don't forget that. You remind us of this all the time. And by your reasoning, if Hani were to evict us from SA, what to do with all the African settlers in Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France and the UK? send them back to Africa and tell them Mbambo said it was ok?

      Mondli - 2012-07-02 11:12

      siyanda.mnyende, good comments about the basics of economics, educate my brother!

      sabongam - 2012-07-02 12:15

      @ claudia.meads - what gall to suggest that the ANC and the people who vote ANC are the enemy of SA. Are we going back to apartheid terms like die "swart gevaar"? Tell me, since you clearly have different beliefs to the ANC, should you be considered an "enemy". Isn't the whole idea of democracy about different views and ideologies being tolerant with each other? The Cape Province should make a Unilateral Declaration of Independence? Geez, so the Cape Province should not be part of SA and live by it's own rules. When your forefathers came here they found the Cape here, now according to you and many others who think like you, it must break away? Imagine, I come into the Meads household(your home) and I start making suggestions on how things should operate? What a colonial and imperialistic way of thinking. Who woke up and gave you the authority to start deciding and making such suggestions about Africa? This country belongs to all who live in it, you included. What you're suggesting is that a minority few should make such a colossal decision about a province which is part of a country that belongs to the rest of us. What a selfish idea.

      denise.ryan.5203 - 2012-07-02 14:43

      Mbambo - Be careful what you wish for - Khoisan want their ancient nation back - They were here first - They have denounced both the previous apartheid-regime and the present ANC-regime... the San and Khoikhoi (also called Khoi) peoples have been in southern Africa longer than any other living population. The ancestors of the Nguni-speaking Xhosa and the Zulu found the Khoisan at the southern tip of Africa http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2012/06/khoisan-want-their-ancient-nation-back.html

      wo0two0t - 2012-07-02 16:44

      sabongam - but if the majority of the Western Cape are sick of the ANC's BS then why the hell not? We are not slaves to the ANC. We do not want corrupt inept people running the show - you may want that but we don’t. We want the best for the job not the most corrupt - you ANC supporters are ALL idiots and are destroying OUR country because of your foolery and racism – let me hear it I’m racist because I’m white. I’m getting so sick of this BS country!

      ArchAngel - 2012-07-22 09:19

      @mbamboy.shy You people? YOU PEOPLE?? Care to elaborate on that just a little please? Refugees? Settlers? If there had been any sort of *eviction* of *those people* (waiting for your explanation) South Africa as you know it today would not exist. It would have spiraled out of control like the rest of the dysfunctional black run(?) countries on your African continent. Just faster than it is doing at the moment. But, in closing, Mbumboy - where do YOU come from? And where are you NOW?

      He says he was wrong to have endorsed Mr Zuma for president. I say he and his ANCYL are again wrong for preaching Nationalisation of mines and the Expropriation of farms - without compensation. If he was intelligent at all, he would learn from his mistakes.

      Did Malema just admit to committing an obstruction of justice?

      Yes Grant Well spotted. Isn't that a chargeable offence?

      Sonwabile Langa-Nomvalo - 2012-07-01 11:28

      Yes, Yar.wellnofine, that is criminal...he should be charged as well.

      nigel.vanysendyk - 2012-07-01 14:41

      @ grant, he just admitted to harboring a fugitive, so if it suits him he will obstruct justice, says a lot about the fool

      oomkrummel.krummel - 2012-07-01 15:41

      So here's the real funny part.They wont go to jail, they wont be in trouble, nothing will happen...Lekker hey..? I bet that they ALL have something on each other. If they all blew the whistle on each other on the same day, the whole bl@@dy lot of them would be sent to jail..But they don't go to jail, culturally its ok to steal and cheat me thinks...

  • JohannP - 2012-07-01 11:09

    Sadly what he is saying is very true. Malema's rise to fame came at the time he was declaring his Bromance for JZ. He did vocalise his support even promising his own death for Zuma (oh how we could only wish). If he and the other youngsters didn't make us nervous about a civil uprising, Zuma probably could have ended up being Bubba's roommate. We were then caught between a rock and a hard place because \the best thing for the country\ was for the charges to be dropped. Today we are agin in the same boat. If Zuma gets a second term, we are screwed. But if he loses at Manguang we might see Julius back in the picture. All that tells me is that our current political playground is now about personalities and no longer about who will serve the country best.

We all knew where Zuma belonged but since public opinion is not important, we have to endure the runaway wagon ride which brainless uneducated buffoons take us on.

    Wel lets have a look at mr president.. He is only enriching himself... Bought a boeing airoplane worth 2 billion rands.. Wears desighners clothing of R25 000 every day... Just the pants he wears cost R7000... But what about the people? Those without jobs? Why use tax money to live like a king instead of opening buisineses for the poor so that they can have income surity? His own people are turning against him. Why? They see him for what he is. I mean come on! 2billion rand for a plane! How many people out there are good with their hands but have no jobs? He could have helped them to build up their future, selling their goods on the market making money like so many others. Even the black worker pays tax! Hard earned tax money the president uses to live like a king with his 28 wifes! Mr. Z the people that you steal from every day will now hate you

    Enough from this idiot(sic). When is News24 going to stop entertaining this fool. Malema is an old smelly socks. He is bitter that's all that he is.

  • Thabisoul Motsome - 2012-07-01 11:54

    Let the truth come out!!!

  • roi.boss1 - 2012-07-01 11:55

    thats the sort of speech from a person that doesnt know politics. Thing those trolls from limpompo still do the same mistake and thats to underestimate President Zuma. Ask tokyo numbers dont lie and judging from the policy confrence Zuma is in Charge. Malema is not a member of the ANC so he should not comment on ANC matters. We shall never vote for people from limpompo coz in thier own backyard they are not managing so how can they control the country. I can list a lot of thing zuma has done. Wat has malema done for the people. And once again i say beware the Man From Nkandla

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-07-01 11:59

      “I can list a lot of thing zuma has done.” Please do.

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-07-01 12:29

      Your mind seems to have drawn a blank. Let me list those I know: #corruption is at its highest since he took over; #he is the first president who is a boyfriend, father of illegitimate children;#fathe of 22 kids some in their 30s others infants;#marries women and fathers children at the expense of the taxpayer;#cannot act or say anything unless someone writes a speech for him;#his children and relatives are millionaires even though one [Duduzane] revealed that they battled to even get job interviews before Zuma became the president;#has been accused of serious charges and refused to clear his name. Should I go on

  • tangwenya - 2012-07-01 11:57

    This is stupidity at its best from Malema. How did the ANCYL 'save' Pres Zuma from jail considering that neither of them were legal reps of the Pres at any given time?\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIt is worrying indeed that Malema sees himself that important than the pleas of the youth he was once granted an opportunity to lead. His utterances are convincing me that he was nothing but a comrade with ideas and mandate from his polotical sugardaddies. \r\n\r\n\r\n Not long ago he was saying the Pres stole 'his' proposals and now these naive perpetual utterances. He is holding the youth to ransom.\r\n\r\n\r\nIt is a pity that we have allowed ourselves to be used with these rhetoric and ill utterances. We have seen it all, the dictatorial tendences in our branches going to his re-election and we accepted.\r\n\r\n\r\nI am more concerned with his dangerous baseless tribalism claim which we know what such did in Zim and DRC. I am concerned with his biased service delivery evaluation whilst he ignore the very Limpopo that has failed to deliver services and has 5 depts under administration. Could it be because his heart is where his money is?\r\n\r\n\r\nGo forth and swear at every leader, you are going to be remembered for nothing but that. You think you are killing the leaders whilst you are in fact killing the ANC.\r\n\r\n\r\nIt is insane to hate everyone, YOU HAVE FAILED THE YOUTH WHEN YOU WERE HOLDING PRESIDENCY but managed to be a multimillionairre with a R25k pm salary. How controvensial is that? \r\n\r\n\r\nWe néèd a new ANCYL leadership that will address youth issues, NOT EMOTIONAL AND PERSONAL AGENDA DRIVERS.

      Ngwenya Zuma never answered for his corruption charges, thanks to COSATU and the Youth Leaugue

  • neo.khemisi - 2012-07-01 12:07

    Ao Malema where have you been last week or did your gronnies not tell what happend in policy confrence boy branches are alright with mr president and if has to do with anything you need to apply to be campaign manager or some like that coarse clearly your next employer(tokyo or kgalema) will nEed you most but remember YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED to anything for my ANC idiot wa bora juju

  • kasper.mbayi2 - 2012-07-01 12:16

    Malema stop lieng in public. We fed up with your stories about Presidend Zuma. You are fired what else now?

  • Gregory Jurgens - 2012-07-01 12:19

    Had Zuma of gone to prison he would be gravely ILL on medical parole anyway. It still puzzles me why the ANC chose this halfwit for president in the first place, he seems to be the reason for all the infighting and devision in the ANC.

  • shavhanieric.netshifhefhe - 2012-07-01 12:23

    I personally no longer trust whatever you say Malema

  • gregory.jurgens - 2012-07-01 12:24

    Electing this halfwit for president is the Anc's biggest mistake so far.

  • crracker.crackerr - 2012-07-01 12:30

    Malema will not be allowed back into the ANC. Too many self-interest on the part of others to place their trust in his loyalty. He is far too unpredictable and volatile. He is challenging the wrong person. Whatever one may think of JZ don't mess with him. He will have you for breakfast. In his final address at the conference he stated that it was resolved to fight crime by the formation of street committees and that these would belong to the ANC. What must one make of it? They will report on us. The ruling party's ears and eyes. It would make it very difficult for example organising delivery protests. Not to mention un-ANC conduct by its own members.

  • fezile.somraba - 2012-07-01 12:40

    i don't understand why people are making this halabaloo because comrade malema is right when he is saying zuma was saved by the youth league.if it was not because of the youth league jacob zuma would be in jail by now.it is the yl that mobilise ppl,it is the yl that intemidated the judges in the high court and decided otherwise.by disagreeing with the yl he is digging his own grave

      jalo.kula - 2012-07-01 12:50

      glad to see you support the "rule by terror" mindset. china here we come. don`t get too excited yet, have you ever seen a happy looking chinese person?

      owamin1 - 2012-07-02 09:56

      the delusions of grandeur continue....you intimidated judges? Is that so? And anyone who disagrees with the YL is digging their own grave? Funny, why are we not scared?

      nkululeko.gcwensa - 2012-07-11 23:58

      So you mean ANCYL influenced judges....think again

  • Charl - 2012-07-01 12:44

    personally i think malema is the biggest racist in this country but, for once i have to agree with him. zuma is a useless an corrupt president and the the country will go even more backwards if he is re-elected.

  • keith.f.murphy - 2012-07-01 13:04

    We are aware Malema that you guys saved his ass from being behind the trollie

  • harold.chisimba - 2012-07-01 13:09

    U SAVED HIM FROM PRISON? NOW U R ENERMIES SEND 2 PRISONNOW DONT WASTE UR TIME CRYING OVER SPILT MILK FELLA.UR TIIME IS GONE 4VA.

  • flysouth - 2012-07-01 13:11

    For once Fatboy is right - and wrong at the same time! He is right in that his actions and support of the ANCYL did save Zuma from prison. He is wrong inasmuch as he now understands very belatedly how appallingly wrong-headed were his actions and support - something which we all understood at the time. We all knew that Zuma had 783 charges of serious criminality to face and was determined to become Pres. only because he knew very well that being Pres. would save him from those charges. This is the 'African' way - the 'Big Man' cannot be questioned! Therefore the best defence was never going to presented in court - it was to become Pres. and not face the charges. I think that people like Malema and Zuma have no business being involved in the politics of any democracy - they simply do not get it at all with their throwback primitive and utterly self-serving mentality! Once would hope of course that, once Mangaung is over and in the event that Zuma is not returned, then both he and Fatboy will find themselves way behind the power curve and themselves facing charges - in the case of Zuma the 783 from yesteryear and in the case of Malema fraud and corruption, plus tax charges.

    DOES THIS NOT JUST AGAIN PROVE THAT THE YOUTH LEAGUE HAVE NO PRINCIPLES. KNOWING ZUMA WAS GUILTY THEY SUPPORTED HIM AND PROTECTED HIM FROM GOING TO PRISON. ALL TO ENSURE THAT MBEKI DID NOT GET A THIRD TERM. WHAT A 'GEMORS'. DO THESE PEOPLE NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG? DO THEY HAVE NO MORAL PRINCIPLES? AND OF COURSE THIS DOES NOT ONLY APPLY TO THE YOUTH LEAGUE BUT IT CHARACTERISES THE ANC FOR THE MOST PART. GOD, THE RULER OF ALL THINGS, HAS GIVEN SOUTH AFRICA THE GOVERNMENT IT DESERVES. LET US PRAY THAT THIS SINFUL STATE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES WILL BRING SOUTH AFRICA TO ITS KNEES IN REPENTANCE.
