ANCYL won't replace Malema - report

2012-04-29 22:18

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League will not replace its expelled leader, Julius Malema, the Sunday Times reported.

Deputy president Ronald Lamola should assume the role of acting president, according to the league's constitution. But he told the paper the league had not yet accepted the expulsion.

"Nothing has changed," he was quoted as saying.

"Julius Malema is still the president of the Youth League. We will ask the ANC national executive to review his expulsion. If that fails, we will fight this battle at the ANC congress in Mangaung."

Malema had declined his nomination for vice president of the International Union of Socialist Youth due to fears this would detract from fighting his expulsion, the paper reported.

ANCYL spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy said the Youth League had issued a statement following its last national executive committee (NEC) meeting.

The NEC meeting reaffirmed "that he [Malema] will remain the president of the ANCYL until 2014", according to the statement.

    The ANC does not have control over the masses, and Malema knows that, he will mobilize the youth (Masses) against the ANC, a new revolution is looming. Zuma beware!!!

    Democracy in action.

      Geronimo - 2012-04-29 23:14

      Nah if it were proper democracy then Julias would have taken the hint and realised the ANC and him don't see eye to eye, and set up his own political party in opposition. If Malema thinks he has sufficient support then what's holding him back?... why, the answer is very obvious... if you're on the outside of the ANC then you can kiss goodbye to the feeding trough of tenders and corruption.

  • mastersvoice - 2012-04-29 22:37

    It would seem Zuma will have to place the ANCYL under curatorship now, by disbanding the leadership and placing his cronies in their stead.

  • Johann - 2012-04-29 22:42

    Just another indication that this moron cannot accept the rule of law. Imagine him being the president of South Africa and losing an election on a scale where the impact will be so much wider and severe... This is a clear indication (never mind the 100 other negatives) that he is not fit to be a leader in a supposedly democratic society.

  • Mike Purchase - 2012-04-29 22:48

    some fools see him as a leader johann just check the comments,no man how can they be so thick.

      those \fools\ have a reason to do so, but fools like u will never understand.

      Well, they are brainless. And clueless. And hopeless, useless and mindless. May aswell be leaderless too.

      Morama - 2012-04-30 13:39

      @Herman,calling people by names would never change the support ANC has but increases it.If your political views are different to others,i dont believe you are stuoid but have got a right to express them in a wise and calm manner to show "Morons,brainless morons" or give them a guidance of how to see things in your "wise" manner?

      graydon.meneses - 2012-04-30 15:54

      herman and alfred both. Morama has a good point. Your comments do nothing to forward anything, and propagate only hatred. To be sure, the ancyl has been tarnished by the likes of shivambu and malema, but that doesn't make it a 'brainless, useless' organisation run by 'morons'. While i don't agree with the route malema has taken them, they have a right to their ideologies and to defend their positions. At the very least you should take a moment to consider walking a mile in the shoes of the poor black township youth who just saw you drive by in your new car, which you have as a result of privilege. At least you might if he had shoes.

      Ntokozo - 2012-05-03 17:42

      and you're smart guy? go out the and toi-toi against him and them... you think yada-yadaring here on the internet will help you?

  • netshiendeulu.tshivhidzo - 2012-04-29 22:52

    am tired of malema and i dont want u any more on anc plz leave us.

      Morama - 2012-04-30 13:45

      @ Thsividzo from Venda,talk for yourself because majority of ANCYL members still consider Malema as their Leader so you are biased because no one can come and say what you have posted if they really know of how bad ANC is running this country.I believe you are new here and just trying to put some irrelevant comments which are not neccessary?

      graydon.meneses - 2012-04-30 15:56

      Morama, he is talking for himself, and has as much right to dislike malema as you have a right to follow him.

  • Nicholas - 2012-04-29 22:58

    I doubt anyone will notice whether he is replaced or not.

      Most of you guys are just spreding hatred which is the most difficult for your hard to think to convince the majority of the youth in SA to vote for the different party.I wonder of how can someone differantiate himself then from the idiots is referring to here?

  • thulanit3 - 2012-04-29 23:18

      @Thulani 3,You are one of those people that cares the most or otherwise you should'nt have commented here?Now the question am asking is who is fooling who here now?

    how are they going to function without a president?

      Ted - 2012-04-29 23:30

      They are clowns. The word 'Acting President' has a special meaning to them as clowns. Its a never ending show to them.

      barry.mcbride - 2012-04-29 23:50

      LOL, please define their functioning!

      Sean - 2012-04-30 02:32

      They never functioned !!

      graydon.meneses - 2012-04-30 16:08

      They will function through their acting president and will obviously also consult with Malema (at this stage). As for the rest who commented... Gigaba, Mandela, Mbalula, to name a few, are products of the ancyl. To say that they 'never functioned' is just ignorant, just as painting every yl member with the malema brush is ignorant. They are normal people, just like everyone else. Consider the fact that you lived in a country that was run by a racist government. Does that make you a racist? I am willing to bet you're going to say no.

      President Juju - he is THE man. Will get all of us a piece of ground in SA to mine on and give the farms to people that will use it properly! Who can replace him? Nobody has got the "qualities" he has!

      Dave - 2012-04-30 04:45

      Hey joep, you get a piece of ground to mine, there is not enough ground to mine for all of you and who will feed you until you grow rich from the gold you mine economic freedom means the hand outs stop , try and eat that

      joubert.joep - 2012-04-30 05:52

      Luckily it is only 80 KM's undeground Dave - I have R20 in savings and I am sure that will get me down there and get me the chemicals/equipment needed to find at least a diamond that I can sell to somebody before getting killed for having one! Gold is a different story it falls out of the sky you just have to be on the right plot of land - free of cost! You then give it to the president and he will give you two heards of cow and 4 wifes - c'mon man what a great life!

Me personally I cannot wait until you take all land and mines I cannot wait until you chase the white people away, we will go back to where we came from and thrive, while you sit in circles and cry like little five year olds watching ur bosses eat cake!

      Colin - 2012-04-30 08:22

      A bit biased Clayton, wouldn't you say? Whilst history shows that there is a 100% record of total racist black dictatorship mentality resulting in the destruction of economic freedom for ALL regardless of colour and creed (well except the privileged few BOB's), too many positive things have happened in this country and there are too many genuinely good people of all cultures to allow this to happen. The sadness is of course, that every person with the slightest intellect who is not consumed by hatred, can see the foolishness of trying to obtain economic freedom by destructive means, whilst those naive unfortunates who are targeted by idiotic propaganda genuinely believe that some good could come out of turning the country on its head. We need to understand that throughout history, poverty has been the breeding ground for revolution and therefore we all, as concerned citizens in South Africa, need to do what we can to make the poor see that a strongly led economy is the only route to their growth. We can all help there, by creating such a strong sense of community that investors will see South Africa as the land of opportunity it really is, and so that jobs can be created to feed the masses. Then, the whimpering of people like Juju will be silenced or ignored forever!

      Very sad , politics of allegience and personality cult in the ANC , Very Very foreign indeed. True and level headed leaders in the movement decided to keep awfully quiet , there are great leaders there but they have retreated and burried their heads in the sand.
