ANCYL spin doctors remain mum

2012-03-01 09:00

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League's spin doctors were mum on Thursday morning about the expulsion of their leader and the suspension of their spokesperson.

ANCYL spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy said it had been decided not to talk to the media.

"We are not going to comment. No," said Moonsamy, who is also the chief operations officer of the National Youth Development Agency.

Suspended spokesperson Floyd Shivambu was not answering his phone and his voice mailbox was full.

He was found guilty of contravening the ANC's constitution by swearing at a journalist and by issuing a statement, in his capacity as spokesman, about creating regime change in Botswana, in contradiction of ANC policy.

He has been suspended from the ANC for three years.

ANCYL president Julius Malema heard on Wednesday that he had been expelled from the ANC, but has two weeks to appeal the decision.

"We must accept that this is the decision, but that is not the end of the road," he said in a report broadcast on SABC radio news.

"It is still early to celebrate because the road ahead of us is going to be very long and needs men and women... who are very strong.

"If you are weak, you are going to fall in the process," said Malema.

"I'm not a soldier who is prepared to fall in the battle, I will die with my boots on, I will die for what I believe in."

Malema said he had not done anything wrong.

"I did not steal from anybody... I did not kill anybody," he said.

The Times reported that he had not given up hope.

"I am a soldier who is prepared to die in 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."

According to the newspaper, he said he had expected the decision because he had read media reports.

Malema was expelled after a meeting of the ANC's national disciplinary committee in Johannesburg.

In a statement, committee chairman Derek Hanekom said Malema was a repeat offender.

He said the NDC had found that Malema had reneged on his membership oath and did not respect the ANC's constitution.

He was found guilty of sowing divisions in the party and of bringing the organisation into disrepute.

      Sizah - 2012-03-01 09:36

      what makes me laugh the most is the fact that Malema is not finished just yet, he spoke about judiciary system not so long ago still controlled by whites & i ask you my fellow citizens what is the current discussion in parliament??? is'nt it the same ANC talking about transformation of the judicial system & the role of the judiciary in the transformation project??? Malema is the mouth piece of the ANC/RULING PARTY any organisation does the same... this Malema & crew hearing had to happen cause they have done some damage to the ruling party integrity & values with their constant ranting but NOT that its OVER... u can quote me on this one

      Mike - 2012-03-01 10:04

      "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." During the election campaign zoom-zoom did not mean that literally ol’ Malemmer, so no need for blood tests!!! Blood is RED, then turn green after 7 days, then turn black after another 7 days and perhaps into gold in 1 billion years!

      Brett - 2012-03-01 10:18

      He's a soldier? A 50kg overweight soldier? Who is his superior officer? Colonel Sanders?

      Piet - 2012-03-01 10:35

      Remember JZ was also fired once......!

      Sizah - 2012-03-01 10:49

      @Piet needless to say he came back with a bang, now he holds the highest post in the country (literally). damn sometime politics do makes me sick - i dont thing he deserved it neither do i think malema shuld come back on contrary both men needs to be replaced

      Mike - 2012-03-01 11:12

      Christopher - 2012-03-01 16:47

    "ANCYL remain mum".... Sulking tearful children is an image that springs to mind. I don't think the ANC hierachy are in the mood for tantrums any more Julius. To bed with no supper for you.

  • jurgen.eksteen - 2012-03-01 09:19

    They are quiet, because their head has been chopped off yesterday evening.

      Carol - 2012-03-01 09:33

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, the chops had their head chop's head chopped off!

  • Poloyatonki - 2012-03-01 09:20

    With or without Malema, Zuma is going down.

      Robert - 2012-03-01 09:23

      and so are militant racist troublemakers. I hope you learned your lesson now Donkey. HAHAHAHA. Stop supporting racist losers.

      Foc - 2012-03-01 10:24

      Police-Donkey .... for once I agree with you .... strange how you lot change from love to hate so quickly .... first you hated Mbeki and loved Zuma .... now its total opposite ... no wonder this country is in a mess with you lot in charge

      bheki.dingiswayo - 2012-03-01 10:37

      We don't care. Zuma was not going to be a president for life. I wonder where do you get a notion that he was to be a president again.

      K0BUSL - 2012-03-01 10:37

      These words could so easily be read as an instigation to a revolt leading to an uprising against the "democratically elected Government", which unless based on factual "dictatorship" or "election rigging" is eagerly seen as "Treason" or "a firing Squad Offense".... yes asks the ANC, they have and will continue to make use of Military Tribunals if the need is there. So Poloyatonki, I suggest that you use care in your statements before ........

      Mannie777 - 2012-03-01 14:49

      Polio doesnt reply to your comments. He makes these useless "1 line" statements and waits for the replies. This is all he does the entire day. Makes me think of retarded person...(clever enough to work a pc, which is strange)

  • E=MC2 - 2012-03-01 09:20

    hahahahahahahahaha!!!!! BYE JUJU - we'll miss you!

      David - 2012-03-01 13:29

      Not!haha

  • jacques.koorts - 2012-03-01 09:27

    "It is still early to celebrate because..." What is the retard on about?

  • Dennis - 2012-03-01 09:34

    Send juju to open a branch of the anc on Mount Etna !!

      Gedoemde - 2012-03-01 09:41

      Or Mariana Trog...

      jurgen.eksteen - 2012-03-01 10:54

      I can see that propaganda spat out: "These colonial Romans took this land forcibly from you and so I call for you to take the land back from them without compensation." That branch would probably look something like a James Bond Villain's lair in the volcano ... except a lot more corrugated "zink-plaat" will be visible and nothing will work.

  • smahlaba - 2012-03-01 09:34

    Good riddance.

  • smahlaba - 2012-03-01 09:35

    Time for a new career in comedy Malema.

      Juan - 2012-03-01 10:05

      Maybe he can be militant left wing type of Evita Bezuidenhoud. He needn't bother with any costumes he can just wear his beret and his ancyl t-shirt. Hell I will even be willing to pay from my hard earned money to go see that clown on the stage, and chuck some rotten eggs at him, LOL

  • senny.tloubatla - 2012-03-01 09:37

    Finally, some peace and quiet.

      Robert - 2012-03-01 10:08

      hear hear !!!

      Akili - 2012-03-01 13:43

      That peace and quiet is at your cost. You wouldn't know until you know who you are and were you from. Look at all the people who have been murdered trying to free black people from any form of slavery, read what Biko said and then come back to comment about Mr Malema again. Look at all the black countries in Africa and tell me why what is happening to black people is happening. Until you can be able to realize the truth you will continue to think the way you think.(Conditioned thinking).

  • Martin - 2012-03-01 09:38

    "I'm not a soldier who is prepared to fall in the battle, I will die with my boots on, I will die for what I believe in." I wonder what that is he believes in... it's been an ever changing ideology.

  • Keelvol - 2012-03-01 09:42

    so, when will his final, final and final appeal take place. Then, there's the final appeal to his final appeal. Idiots.

      Lol.

  • Bongani - 2012-03-01 09:51

    This is a call to all those ANC supporters who joined DA because of Malema issues to come back home. The problem is gone. All of these people who are celebrating Malema's down fall are just not looking at the bigger picture. ANC without Malema is a strong united ANC which will rule this country for next few decades.

      Pieter - 2012-03-01 10:19

      Actually, until Jesus comes. I think that is what the Bible says as well..the antichrist will rule the world until Jesus comes.

      CALAMITYSA - 2012-03-01 13:12

      Bongani - A good opposition is good for everybody. A big majority weakens the leaders - ask the premier of Limpopo. Politics in Africa is a different culture, though. From the Mau mau to Malama is 55 years, via Portuguese colonies, Uganda, Zim, Zambia. Some very bad. The current state in Africa is worse than in 1955/60. All the elections in Africa the last 5 years were cooked, and where the current leaders lost there almost were civil wars. I think the situation could be better if it's more a 50/50 vote. It will at least prevent dictatorships. The ANC posters is full of promising notes - Together we can make it better. If we can keep to that it WILL be better. How do we start working on that??

  • Julie - 2012-03-01 09:57

    I did not steal from anybody.....hahahaha ......what a joke!!!!

  • musaaubrey - 2012-03-01 10:08

    Is not over until the fat laddy sing.As the youth leather has said "the road ahead of us is going to be very long". to those who are celebrating why can't u learn from BAFANA BAFANA.

  • patrickflynn73 - 2012-03-01 10:14

    So now Malema claims to hae black green and gold blood? Just shows he's not a normal human being - last I checked, ALL South Africans have red blood flowing thru their veins

  • Donovan - 2012-03-01 10:27

    Eish. "I did not kill anybody." But he was prepared to "take up arms and kill for Zuma".

  • Andrew - 2012-03-01 10:28

    Ah but Malema can appeal the expulsion. The never ending story - or joke.

  • Arp Liebenberg - 2012-03-01 10:29

    If your blood is black, you are dead fool! If it is green you are a plant without a brain and if it is gold you stole other people's air that they must breath! Rubish

      At least looting will decrease with him gone. I am waiting for him to join me in farming so that he can share with me his successes (money wise).

  • solanga.maluleke - 2012-03-01 10:37

    For the first time ANC loose candidate for 2014 Elections. We did not hear this type of issues to expel your child. Even if your child is doing bad is still your child you do not have to deny him, as they have fired Juju 80% of the SA youth will never trust ANC as they are now going to be able to hide all their corruptions and no one to expose them. Down ANC Down.

    There really is no end to the extent of his stupidity. ".....my blood will remain black, gold & green. I am prepared to do a blood test to prove that." FAIL....FAIL, FAIL..... Mr Malema, please collect your Darwin award.

  • Silvana - 2012-03-01 11:06

    I think Malema was born with a deformity. His anus and mouth swapped places. No normal person can egest so much crap from their mouth. Give him an intravenous dose of Imodium please. Make a triple dose!

    The future of South Africa lies with its young people while i respect Mr Hannekom as an individual i think their sentence was harsh & seeks to protect themselves from the ANCYL when going to Mangaung so that the NEC can retain their current position& avoid nationalising mines caused they wanna keep their relationship with his aunties &uncles abroad.

  • Rajen - 2012-03-01 13:42

    Hopefully an intellectually endowed new Youth Leader will emerge after this implosion of MALEMA. Someone that can focus on education and skills dvelopment amongst ANCYL memebers which should be the core strategy of ANCYL activities.

      Akili - 2012-03-01 15:07

      Yeh, and forget about dispossession. That sounds like an intellectually endowed leader.

  • gordon.kotze - 2012-03-01 16:24

    He keeps referring to himself as a soldier? I reckon if he went into battle he would wet his nappy. Where and when were you trained as a soldier Malema? Calling yourself a soldier is a slap in the face to all military personell in South Africa. Can you imagine him doing a 2.4km with a sand bag or pole???? What a frikken joke.

  • allan.whitton1 - 2012-03-01 19:20

    thought for the ANC why not make 21 the upper age limit for the ANCYL and then they can clear out all the idiots in one stroke

      Brian - 2012-03-01 21:15

      Many people under estimate Zuma, they think he is fool but i have different opinion. The man might not have sound education but has wisdom,if he outwitted the intellectual like Thabo Mbeki and survived brutal apartheid gvt.What can Julius Malema do?,Zuma's influence in kZN neutralized Inkatha, this man is simply a genius. Brian

  • Sariena - 2012-03-02 05:50

    Only we can let Malema fade into the past by never comment on him again.What we do is keeping him alive.He can sort out his own problems and he has plenty....
