Bring it on, says Julius Malema

2011-10-31 12:21

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has dared the Hawks to lay charges against him, the Daily Sun reported on Monday.

"Bring it on! I am tired of being threatened," Malema told the newspaper.

"Everybody is setting the Hawks on me. I have never done anything wrong and maybe it would be better if the Hawks charge me so that I can explain these allegations in front of a magistrate."

Malema was responding to reports that he faced arrest on charges related to his financial affairs.

Evidence

He said if the Hawks had any evidence against him then they should prosecute him.

"If the Hawks are going to open a case against me, that's good. Let those who have evidence come forward," said Malema.

"Those SMSes they are talking about and the money they say they deposited into my account must be explained in court."

The Hawks declined to comment on the matter on Monday morning.

The Times reported that a joint investigation by the Hawks and the SA Revenue Service into the youth leader's financial affairs was almost complete.

It said the probe was "as good as complete" and it was "just a matter of time" before authorities acted.

    go fatdoy beat the charges if you can it is your right but do not complain about the courts when you are found guilty come hawks show us that you not a waist of time.

      Pebetse - 2011-10-31 12:46

      NOT WAIST, WASTE.

      Right - 2011-10-31 12:50

      Just charge him...but please make sure the case is "bullet proof" and go and round up those 40 Limpopo Government workers that have been put on long leave in preparation for the case. This case needs to be handled properly in terms of the Law or else it will make SA go up in flames.

      bhopking - 2011-10-31 12:51

      Lol who cares if it's meant to be waste instead on waist,,, you still get the point

      Ian - 2011-10-31 12:52

      Thulebona and Petbeste - Chris used the word 'waist' in conjucntion with 'fatboy' - (fatboy has a big waist - meaning he is fat...)its a 'play on words' but then you wouldnt know that would you? Fools!

      Youefoh - 2011-10-31 12:52

      You idiots, is this an English class? Wake up and comment on the story.

      Yusuf - 2011-10-31 12:53

      how would you know that ian?did you write that for him

      Don - 2011-10-31 12:59

      He does have a large waist Chris! LMAO

      Dave - 2011-10-31 12:59

      What else do you or anybody expect him to say ?. He will never admit he is guilty. This is the political poker game, bluff and double bluff a police cheif tried exactly the same and now he is still appealing his conviction, he's still not in jail.

      Right - 2011-10-31 13:03

      Het iemand serv-ASS gesien?

      Grant - 2011-10-31 13:04

      Ian, you beat me to it you bugger ;-)

      George - 2011-10-31 13:06

      The weakness of any case against Malema is that he is not a government employee, meaning that he does not sit on any tender panels. How will they prove that he manipulated the tenders when he is not an official of government deciding on tenders. Malema has every right to engage in government business as he is not an official. If some of his companies are engaged in tenders so what because zuma's kids and everyone does it. ANC owns Hitachi which has contracts with Eskom, this will just make juju more famous and risk burning SA. I dont like Julius and his politics but to suddenly charge him when he is now opposed to Zuma's continued presidency is not kosher. Remember that SA judiciary is fiercely independent and no one can manipulate it for political gains.

      Right - 2011-10-31 13:09

      @George...Ummmmmmmm....suggest you read the Prevention of Corruption Act. How do think Shaik...got convicted?

      Johan - 2011-10-31 13:09

      ...Woodwork Malema belongs in jail... ..the sooner the better....

      marco.tomaso - 2011-10-31 13:10

      From the BBC Report:South African MPs from the ruling African National Congress admitted to hiring expensive cars and booking into luxury hotels at the taxpayers' expense. By entering a plea bargain they thus cleverly avoid escaping jail with either fines or suspended prison sentences.It is unclear if any of them will even resign from Parliament.

      Right - 2011-10-31 13:18

      I would really LMFAO if Malema does get convicted of corruption and next year Zuma is upseated by Sexwale and then Malema gets pardoned by Sexwale. They say history repeats itself so Zuma/Shaik leads to Sexwale/Malema.

      Thandi - 2011-10-31 13:30

      @ George - "Remember that SA judiciary is fiercely independent and no one can manipulate it" - unless you are a member of the inner circle of the ANCorruption, like showerhead, the evil one, shaik, selebe, all these cadres who end up on long leave with full pay, and soon fatboy is going to demonstrate just how manipulative it is

      Right - 2011-10-31 13:38

      OK...as long as it's to his "PLANE" and not to his "PLAN". With you I never know....

      Hugh - 2011-10-31 13:46

      @George, wrong, fatboy's one company is employed to adjudicate the Limpopo's tenders. His recommendations are taken as a consultant. Ironic I know as he isn't qualified to consult, and the Limpopo government incapable of selecting tenders on their own. They are going to nail his fat ass to the ceiling. Gonna be fun to watch how you defend your hero then. Blame it on his poor education or that he is black or its the settlers fault for corrupting him.Lol

      colin.dovey - 2011-10-31 13:47

      The Hawks have been preparing this case for months.....that is probably why the Public Prosecutor pulled back - but what is MUCH MORE serious, are the allegations of Tax Dodging by him, which has got the attention of SARS - THAT is MUCH more serious, and if he has been doing so, he WILL be spending a long time in Chookie.

      Myvision - 2011-10-31 13:49

      @ Thandi, I'm not sure if you follow any news or you're just ome of those who make inflamatory statements or use any opportunity to take cheap shots at the ANC. What manipulation did Selebi do? He has been sentenced to 15 yrs and is trying to appeal that as allowed by the constitution and as permitted by the jugde in his trial.

      Right - 2011-10-31 14:00

      @MyVision....lets not talk about Selebi...as SA has the notorious distinction of allowing someone associated with the Mafia(Selebi) to be nominated and to Head Interpol. Before we start complaining about SA....one should also consider that Western Nations and Governments allowed this to happen and even went as far as coming to the defense of Selebi when the charges were initially laid. Its to late now...but in his defence Selebi should have tried stating that he was on assignment to "penetrate the underworld" on behalf of the Police and Interpol.

      Servaas - 2011-10-31 14:15

      "It said the probe was "as good as complete" and it was "just a matter of time" before authorities acted." Music to my ears... Will be brilliant if they arrest him the moment he sets foot of that plane.. Humiliate him properly..

      rbphiri - 2011-10-31 14:25

      The only reason Julius Malema has dared the Hawks to lay charges against him is because the man knows his fate. Numerous politicians have been charged for fraud and corruption, but regardless none of them get prosecuted, they merely get fired or move a step up the coperate ladder. Politicians religiously believe that their position and political ties grants them immunity from prosecution. If Malema is arrested and convicted on the charges it will serve as a warning to all politicians that the Judicial system is unbiased and that anyone can face prosecution regardless of their social hierarchy. If Malema inevitably ends in court, don't be suprised if the case is plagued with postponements and disruptions from league supporters outside the court. Next thing we might see ridiculous stories of courts being moved to secret locations.

      Right - 2011-10-31 14:28

      @serv-ASS...come on serv-ASS surely you know better or don't you ever THINK. Malema was give a police escort to ORTIA for his flight to Mauritius. When he boarded the plane the Captain welcomed him on Board as the President of the ANCYL. When the plane landed in Mauritius a car drove onto the airport runway to fetch Malema from the plane(thats not something trivial). Do you really THINK that Malema would get arrested when the plane lands on return from Mauritius? You should try to THINK some time. He will hear that an arrest warrant is been sought and he will hand himself in at the nearest police station pending his first court appearance where the presiding officer will decide on bail or not. Stop letting your rather one-sided emotions runaway from logic.

      Jack - 2011-10-31 14:29

      the only place he can waste his waist is in jail. But who am I to say as Schaik looked even fatter when he came from jail.

      Servaas - 2011-10-31 15:18

      @Right: Do you have any other function except from trying to p*ss me off on a daily basis? You barely comment but the moment I comment you are off to the races. You are one narrow minded old fool..

      Right - 2011-10-31 16:04

      @serv-ASS....it is because : all your comments are devoid of logic, because all your comments are filled with racism, because you have this erroneous belief that black people are inferior to you, because you seem to think that every black person must belong to the ANC or ANCYL, because you seem to think that every wealthy black person acquired their wealth thru criminal or dubious activities, government tenders or BEE, because you have no respect for black people whatsoever, because your have a "laager mentality" that seeks to encourage groups to target black people, because for everything that goes wrong you want to blame black people, because you want to blame black people for you not making progress in life, because you are uneducated and want to portray yourself as far more educated than every black person...when this is clearly not the case, because you seldom think before making your utterances nor think about the content, Because you blow alot of hot air about armed insurrection but you are actually a coward that does not follow thru, because you have this violent attitude and prefer brawn over brains,......I will not go on. But until such time that you change your attitude "dan soek ek jou...."

      alansmart223 - 2011-10-31 20:29

      Pebetse.. You'r to dumb to see Chris's humour. He wastes his followers money and he is so obese that we could give him the name of Waist and all would know who we are talking about. I'm sure Chris does not need a lesson in grammer or spelling

      Bradley - 2011-11-01 11:12

      I think its awful that Rhinos get slaughtered as such, some thing needs to be done.

      Servaas - 2011-11-01 11:31

      @Right: And what about your comments you made. I think you beat me hand down when it comes to racism. Funny how when a white person does not agree with a black person he is labelled a racist. Boy and can you guys play that card BRILLIANTLY! Yes. I do not respect AA/BEE. Why do I need to respect something that discriminates against me and my child, which I may add had nothing to do with apartheid, but as you say my "laager" mentality is clearly the mentality you are stuck on. And now I get violent because I oppose a structur that is trying it's best to opress me. You idiots want to just have everything for Mahala, take farms etc etc and I am not supposed to get violent?? Tell you what, I think I will come and "squat" on your farm and claim this farm belonged to my great grand father 200 years ago. (Btw, this is the stupidity behind the reasoning in land grabs) and then see if you will not get violent. Do you want me to go on?

      Right - 2011-11-01 11:48

      @serv-ASS...History always goes full circle and repeats itself. I suggest you look keenly and objectively at the work done and the publications of one Leon Louw who has documented just how much land graps your forefathers and ancestors engaged in a few years ago. You need to understand that these large farms that you supposedly own were acquired thru land graps years ago and the indigenous people were pushed off THEIR land. AN EYE FOR AN EYE.....

      Servaas - 2011-11-01 11:50

      @Right: Well, you certainly are not wise for an old man. an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Ok, I understand your reasoning, but were these farms developed. Tell you what, why don't the farmers put the farms back in the state it was when it was taken? It has been proven that most farms taken back for land-grabs and handed out to the "new owners" did not carry on with commercial farming. nope, sustenance farming. Now what impact will that have on the economy? No, not an eye for an eye, more like cutting your nose to spite your face

      Right - 2011-11-01 16:02

      @serv-ASS...your logic is similar to a car thief saying YES I stole your car but I am not going to return it to you.....because I do not approve what you are going to use it for. Your thought processes are DEFICIENT!

      Servaas - 2011-11-01 21:10

      @Right: "Your thought processes are DEFICIENT! " Are you stuck on stupid. Is that the only word in your vocabulary? Mine might be deficient, but yours Sir, are uninformed, ancient and without justification. Your reason is a typical example of the ANC Brainwashed way of thinking. Like I said earlier, go fly a kite.

  • Peter - 2011-10-31 12:29

    This is just another case of political battles in the ANC. Nothing works in this government anymore, they act only where there is political scores. Why is Zuma's sons and cousins not prosecuted for the Aurora mines and Arcellor mittal deals. Was duduzane questioned about his sudden riches and a 14million mansions he owns, this is nonsense. The President himself still doesn't know how he got off lightly from his plate of mixed "dirties". Hawks, SARS, Public Protector teamed up for this? I wish they could team for every corruption in our government.

      Grant - 2011-10-31 12:49

      Very valid points Peter. I might add that the investigation into Malema is just part of the power struggle going on in the ANC at present.

      Trudy - 2011-10-31 13:31

      @ Jack.Your ignorance is astounding. Perhaps you should read about the political history of SA, etc. Perhaps we should all do it - then maybe we will at least try to be understanding and sympathetic or at least make more sensible comments

      Peter - 2011-10-31 13:38

      Jack... though we share the cries of the current regime, You have a stupid approach towards pressing issues. Take off your blinkers and stop seeing everything by colour.

      mastersvoice - 2011-10-31 13:51

      Jack - if what you say is true and black people do hate white people, then its probably due to comments such as yours. Makes me wonder "what have men named Jack ever contributed to civilization"... perhaps we should leave you alone, so you can blissfully wallow in your ignorance...

      rbphiri - 2011-10-31 15:15

      @ Jack lets not generalize, not every black person is a shadow of malema. Imagine me saying that every white person is a racist. We should not be fighting-we creating the divisions that most politicians want. We should be embracing the fact that there are still people of different race who share a common goal of improving the country. Man shouldn't be judged by his/her colour but by their positive contribution to the country. I treat white people no different from blacks. Malema has created a negative image of the black youth-not every black individual goes around trying to nationalize the country's commodities or embarks on senseless marches. There are black individuals who wakeup every morning and make an honest living thru hardwork and not thru fraudulent trust funds or shady deals. Jack i know deep down u do believe in my statement, i know you are merely fed up with the corruption plaguing the country, the sad reality is that most of our black politicians are involved, thus creating negative stigmas about honest working blacks in society. We have to accept that not all blacks are the same and not all whites are the same. But certain individuals in each race group tarnish the image of their own race thru immoral behaviour and actions.

      Jack - 2011-10-31 15:38

      @rbphiri, But it’s always the same argument....The western world has stolen our land and mineral resources, but really how can we be accused of stealing your mineral resources when you guys didn't even know they existed. I mean true your spears where made out of iron ore, but really i some how doubt you guys where using platinum, nickel, tin, palladium, titanium, silver, uranium etc. Now with 12 million unemployed people living in direct poverty, there only hope is malema and the so called mineral mines we stole!!! So we have a problem….and it stems from the top….why don’t you convince your people to call an end to this fiasco? Or is because you actually want it all for yourselfs>?

      rbphiri - 2011-10-31 16:08

      Jack lets not turn this into a racial debate. Lets ended it with a smile and accept that we do have social problems, but i am glad we could convey our thoughts positively without any negative remarks or animosity. Enjoy ur day man.

      Malema made the classic mistake of spending more than what he claims to earn. Many men in history made this mistake. Al Capone comes to mind, in the end this ganster boss went to jail on tax evasion.

      Theresa - 2011-10-31 15:11

      Well Malema has decided to run with the big dogs(Hawks).As the saying goes:If you want to run with the big dogs you can expect to get bitten! I think Juju is gonna p!ss like a puppy when they're done with him!

  • mastersvoice - 2011-10-31 12:34

  • sam.guud - 2011-10-31 12:40

    I say if you want to arrest Julius Malema for bettering the very system that turned all post 1994 instant millionaires,go for each and everyone of them.People please don't be fooled by the so-called anti-corruption loud-mouthes,all of them are corrupt to the core and they got their riches the same way Julius did,even if they used sophisticated methods,stealing remains stealing and corruption remains corruption. The Hawks is the new Scorpion being used to settle political scores intead of being first loyal to this country and its citizens. If you hate Julius so much that we allow people to use our state institutions to fight personal and political battles,then after Zuma is gone,whoever gets in will follow the same route. Is that what we want for our beloved country?I doubt that.Most of you keep saying Zimbabwe this and that but because your hatred for Julius seems to blind your judgement,then God save us.

  • Craig - 2011-10-31 12:48

    The only ANC official who looks good in my eyes today is Mbalula. He offered two things which are virtually non-existent within the ANC, he admitted he did wrong, and he apologised. How refreshing.

      Thulebona - 2011-10-31 12:49

      really?

      mastersvoice - 2011-10-31 12:50

      I'd prefer it if they did not have to apologize in the first place...

      Craig - 2011-10-31 13:07

      @Thulebona, yes, generally it is deny, deny, deny, get caught, deny, go to court, get suspended on full pay and then nothing happens. Personally I think the bloke's sex life is his own business provided it is not illegal. But to have an ANC official say "Yes, I did it, and I was wrong" is the rarest of things in ZA at the moment, and we could do with more of it from the ruling party.

      Craig - 2011-10-31 13:10

      @mastersvoice, I agree with you 100%, but we have to laud a good thing when it happens, they are so few and far between when it comes to the ANC.

      mastersvoice - 2011-10-31 13:26

      But Craig, its NOT a good thing. Its the best he could do as he had been caught out, but that does not make it good.

      Craig - 2011-10-31 13:52

      @mastersvoice - Very good point, the thing is, Mbalula did not lie when it came out, and this is very important. And this is not a transgression that really affects us at an economic or political level, he basically succumbed to a very usual human weakness. I expect Mbalula's personal life is a bit of a wreck at the moment. Unfortunately this is the price you pay for public life. Compare this with JuJu, who appears to have succumbed to a human weakness too, power and money (possibly at the expense of the poor and almost certainly for the better endowed too). This is less acceptable in a political leader (in my opinion). Has he said he is wrong? Has he said he is sorry? Will he say it if he is caught with his hand very firmly in the cookie jar (as per the article)? This I believe is the crux of the matter with reference to the article above. He will deny. He has already.

    Corruption in South Africa the ANC Government is shocking. Professor Micheal Savage,a sociologist,wrote:"Theft,fraud and violence:South African MPs do it all.A culture of impunity has made the South African parliament one of the most scandal-ridden in the world whereby MP's are arrested for drunken driving,shoplifting,fraud and corruption offences. Of the 535 MP's,29 have been guilty of domestic violence,7 have been arrested for fraud,19 have been accussed of bouncing cheques,117 have been involved in at least 2 businesses that have gone bankrupt,71 cannot obtain a credit card because of bad credit ratings,14 have been arrested on drug-related charges,8 have been arrested for shoplifting,84 have been arrested for drunken driving. Tony Yengeni,a former chief whip in the ANC,who was convicted for fraud in 2003 while chairing the country's defence commitee says this of their ANC elite:"What does the high court got to do with my life?I don't have to ask permission from them to do certain things...When asked about his numurous luxury cars which includes a MASERATI and 2 BMW's he replied "many other people have cars including white people who still have all the wealth of this country".For those brought up in the townships politics becomes the doorway to self-enrichment.Survivalism in SA is seen as political entitlement.Few MP's ever goes to prison.

    I am not worried about Julius the individual. Morons are everywhere in the world. What worries me is the number of morons that support him. There seems to be an oversupply (sic Manyi)of morons in African countries in general an in SA specifically.

      Mutsila - 2011-10-31 14:30

      u r the number 1 moron

      lioneldelange - 2011-10-31 20:11

      @ Mutsila. And you're the first moron to reply.

  • shozi - 2011-10-31 13:21

    leave Malema alone

      mastersvoice - 2011-10-31 13:28

      Agreed. Solitary confinement it is then...

  • William - 2011-10-31 13:25

    JA, MALEMA, YOU ARE FULL OF CHAMPAGNE NOW AFTER THE WEDDING. THEY MUST KICK YOUR ASSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

  • sihleh.mthethwa - 2011-10-31 13:26

    Fat Boy and Chum Chum, Chum Chum being Flody Shivambu

  • liezl.pretorius - 2011-10-31 13:29

    The only reason Malema is so confident in pleading his innocence is that he does not know what Corruption is, it's become a way of life for the majority South Africans...

  • Mtizozo - 2011-10-31 13:34

    Let the truth re-surface, we are sick and tired of the media selling technics,,

  • Jason - 2011-10-31 13:45

    Its a family charity, that people donate funds to that I organise tenders for.. That isn't wrong! WHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Freddie - 2011-10-31 13:46

    Juju after his march for the poor flew to Mauritius to attent a R10 million rand party and then he accuses his own ANC ministers of leading a lavish lifestyle!! Juju also recently said that blacks must now live like the whites! Right here we go: which white person flew this weekend to Mauritius to attend an opulent splash of a black billionaire? Clearly, Juju is a racist and it seems to me the ANC supports racism!!!!!

  • Mzwandile - 2011-10-31 13:48

    But Only time will tell

  • ditantane.kganakga - 2011-10-31 13:51

    this hawks is just a piece of joke, mabey SARS can have a case, even if he influence the awarding of tenders they can't convict him, he have no official powers and authority in government, only people who authorised those tenders can be convicted of fraud and corruction, because if he never thretened your life then how do u say he forced u to award a tender. AND THE HAWKS SHOULD STOP GOING TO THE MEDIA WHENEVER THEY INTEND ON CHARGING ANY PERSON THEY SHOULD JUST DO IT AND LET THE COURT TAKE ITS COURSE.

      alansmart223 - 2011-10-31 21:55

      ditantane.kganakga..Seeing that u can't write in english I'll give yu something in Afrikaans: Leë vat hou toe jou kraan.. dan sien ons jou vir 'n volle aan

  • Ubabamkhulu - 2011-10-31 13:57

    Bring it on, says Julias Malema. My child, I have never heard you saying, "bring it on" - to the Minister of Basic Education. Next time you have a youth rally or march, please tell the youngsters, “EDUCATION BEFORE NATIONALISATION" There is no other liberating mechanism in the world like EDUCATION. I do not wish it upon you, however, if you have to do time one day, I surely hope that you will educated (fundisa) yourself.

  • martin.gee.godfrey - 2011-10-31 14:03

    Never mind all that, Malema is all for job creation, so perhaps he should advise us all just how many jobs his companies and those he has a stake in have created? It's all well and good to tell government to create jobs but if he is so well connected to the tenderpreneurs, he should be insisting that they give jobs to all his followers when the tender has been awarded.

  • raymond.kok3 - 2011-10-31 14:04

    your president said the same thing and after awhile his cronies had to step in and dismiss charges againts him, so if found guilty will the judge be a puppet if black or a racist if white ,just checking

  • Jason - 2011-10-31 14:04

    Its not just eh hawks its SARS as well, if I didn't declare my income I would also be living like mr Malema. He thinks he is above the law, he thinks everyone is scared of him, but the truth of the matter is if we don't hold him to the same laws we live by our nation is a failure, maybe because Zuma got away with it he feels he should as well.

  • Mutsila - 2011-10-31 14:07

    juju, will rock you"bring it on", come forward and help the hawks build the case against him, u wont prosecute him through news24 comments.

      mastersvoice - 2011-10-31 14:10

      and you won't exonerate him either...

      boby.mafi - 2011-10-31 16:34

      Nobody intends to prosecute Juju here, we are only sharing a social imaginary.If you find the exercise useless just don't participate and let those who find it enriching march on.

  • Grim - 2011-10-31 14:11

    For when you can’t handle the racism and theological ideologies. Think you are actually nobody in the bigger perspective. Take your racism and religion and get an education. Until people see that through racism and religion wars have been fought and the planet has been destroyed. If people keep up with the racist ideas, with the advancements in science we will only destroy ourselves. Look at the genetic side, you me and everyone have over 99% the same genetic structure. If you look further into it you will see that all living animals and plants share around 50% genetic makeup. That means i am essentially 50% banana and peach, you are also essentially 50% fruit and strangely also wood or water. Then look further and you will see that we all have 5% Neanderthal genomes and 2.5% Homo erectus genomes. As you get more and more to the homo sapiens you will see that the genomes become more alike.

  • Nathan - 2011-10-31 14:13

    Let's hope Malema get prosecuted as without a doubt, he steals from the poor behind the poor's back and hides this fact by blaming other races during his organisied rally.

  • Gerhard - 2011-10-31 14:13

    Maybe CIA sponsored like those rebels in Lybia

  • Grim - 2011-10-31 14:13

    Then look at something like a quantum conscience and the developments in Quantum Mechanics. You will see that matter in fact is nothing and the distance between the nucleus and the electron is far too large...making you, me and the desk your computer are sitting on essentially ... nothing. You, me and every human on this planet share one conscience, one thought and in these thoughts we create our own reality. Through racism and religion these are only going to destroy ourselves and the ability for the cosmos to explore itself from within through OUR conscience will only be destroyed...

      Ubabamkhulu - 2011-10-31 14:28

      Grim, slow down please! Are you from another planet? We cannot even understand how to live peacefully with our neighbours and you are trying to teach us science. What you are saying is that if Neill Armstrong was swopped over with a black boy from Africa, the black boy would have been the first man on the moon. Are we that close? I might be old, but i still hunger for knowledge. Are you giving a seminar on your theories? When? Where?

      Grim - 2011-10-31 15:37

      @Ubabamkhulu.. Time is of the escence as its only that we actually have to make the difference and educate people. Its through science that we can actually learn to love and through education we can let everything rest. Please do have a looka the next post with the link and you will see how small nationalisation is and then everything that everyone is saying. We are all exceptionally small and our thoughts and ideas are really even smaller. Doesnt really matter if neil is black or white really, thats the mindset that has to change. thats the deep set racism that will only detroy. As you said in your previous post. education before anything. lets make sure the education is correct..

      Peter - 2011-10-31 15:50

      Ubabamkhulu no understand????? how on earth does one take you seriously and respectfully???? OMG everyday it gets worse! :(

      Ubabamkhulu - 2011-10-31 16:47

      @Peter. Sorry, it seems that I am over your head now. You do not have to take me seriously! All I said to Grim is that science will not get us out of this mess. Read my earlier blog. And try and get the humour in it, tong in check. The point is that you and I have different cultures, however, we have one thing in common, and that is JM. If you have read my earlier comments, you would have noticed that I am trying to say to the uneducated Julias that he is going to cause major problems for all of us in SA. He is a disgrace for the black man in SA and as you should have noticed, I am not rude nor have I made any derogatory statements against him. I am an old man, trying to get sense in his (JM) and his followers minds. By the way, the bible says that you must not be harsh with an old man.

  • Grim - 2011-10-31 14:14

    Wake up dude and see that your thoughts need to change, you racism towards any person needs to stop. Also we need to look at what religion actually is and how it is interpreted. Please watch this short clip from one of the greatest minds, Carl Sagan. Really puts in perspective how your racist fight against whites yellow black and purple is insignificant. All your thoughts ideas and actions are really insignificant in the bigger picture. It’s time for enlightenment and time for Homo sapiens to move forward together as one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nl5dlbCh8lY&feature=related

  • Sthembiso - 2011-10-31 14:18

    jack!its sad 2 hear u say those things!i love white people. not all blacks are bad and not all white people are as good as you think. we just the same. colour is the only difference.

  • Francois - 2011-10-31 14:22

    If he gets arrested and go to jail he will become the president of SA one day. You can not join Government without a criminal record!!

  • Kevin - 2011-10-31 14:23

    fat boy still thinks he counts. He cannot see that his march to Pretoria was a failure and that he is history in more ways than one. Watch how quick his friends distance themselves from him once he implicates and blames them
