Buthelezi not surprised ANCYL attacking Zuma

2011-09-14 17:18

Empangeni - IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi has criticised the burning of T-shirts bearing the face of President Jacob Zuma by ANC Youth League members.

"I was very appalled by that," he said in a speech read by Inkatha Freedom Party MP Narend Singh during the National Teachers' Union's (Natu) 93rd conference in Empangeni on Wednesday.

The IFP leader was unable to address delegates after he was admitted to hospital last week with fatigue.

Buthelezi said he had been taunted and vilified when he warned the ANC it was creating a future devoid of respect for authority.

Youth league leader Julius Malema had been allowed to insult elders and leaders, without anyone in the African National Congress calling him to order. Buthelezi said he was not surprised the ANCYL was attacking Zuma.

The Natu conference was also attended by ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe.

Education system bedevilled

Buthelezi said the education system was bedevilled by the ANC's cadre deployment policy.

"Through this policy, people have been placed in positions for which they are not qualified. It has seen competent people, from unions which are not aligned to the ruling party, being overlooked for positions."

The SA Democratic Teachers' Union was aligned with the ANC.

Democratic Alliance MP Wilmot James commended Natu for campaigning for the needs of its members without disrupting teaching.

"This union has always tried to balance the welfare of its members with those of its members’ students.

"Some of the larger unions have become better known for their disruptive actions on the street, rather than their care for their students."

    Exactly! Here is a boy allowed to run rampant and not called to order... if that happened in a family environment (which the ANC claims to be) - then that "naughty" child would have been called to order a long time ago. Teach this child some manners - there are ways to say something WITHOUT sounding like a spoilt little brat! If he wants more than just the adolescents of this world to listen to him and he wants the respect of his elders - then start acting responsibly and speak like a MAN and not an attention seeking little brat! He knows what angers people - yet he continues... why? For the sensationalism - that is why! So yank him back to order please!

      And George is a troll trying to stir the pot.

      Malema is the ANC boss and bosses are not stopped.

      @George - Why George I am curious? The Xhosas have always been kept in line by the Zulus. Cause the Zulus are disciplined and work well as a unit.

    "he had been taunted and vilified when he warned the ANC it was creating a future devoid of respect for authority."True unfortunately Zuma is not a true leader and a respectable elder

    off the subject but dont we love it when news24 doesnt allow us to comment on Winnie

      Yislaaik - 2011-09-14 18:08

      It's just as well I couldn't. I can't believe they still sing praises to a b.b. like that after she had Stompie murdered and still remained free to become famous.

      oistar - 2011-09-14 18:15

      Interesting point, Grod. If the rumours are to be believed, Winnie is the force behind Malema. And that Malema ... Stompie,- just saying what I heard. Anyway, possibly, why don't we know who the murderer was? To answer your question, I assume that the same media blackout that is protecting her, is the same media blackout why your comments about Winnie aren't allowed by News24

      grod - 2011-09-14 19:11

      @oistar - Whilst I am certain that Winnie is the spearhead of the radical force within the NEC of the ANC supporting Malema I cant believe any honourable media concern would want to protect her?

      oistar - 2011-09-14 19:59

      Not so much them wanting to being compelled to

      MSGRule - 2011-09-15 08:06

      News24 has implemented its own media control over us. Many stories start off and 2 or 3 comments slip through then it is over. The truth hurts, the government does not want to know what the people on the street think

      Zodwa - 2011-09-15 09:01

      After reading the comments on Winnie's hospitalisation, I find it appaling to learn that the majority of people on this site come across as very racist. Winnie is somebody's mother/grandmother so she deserves respect. Plotting to kill Stompie Seipei was a mistake any freedom fighter makes whilst engaged in the struggle. Remember how many people De Kock, Basson, Malan, the Bothas, Verwoerd and Vlok killed during their time? Vlok even offered to wash somebody's feet to show his remorse/guilt. Just once news24 did the right thing by deleting those postings. Peace

  • carjan - 2011-09-14 17:55

    Yes Mr Buthelezi - you have an integrated personality - that little rat was allowed to grow up without discipline - cannot even wash his plate and make his own bed - disgusting little snotneus.

  • Yislaaik - 2011-09-14 18:13

    I must say I haven't always agreed with Buthelezi but he is a very wise man. Very outspoken too! I don't mind a person with inteliigence disagreeing with me but I cannot suffer the argument of fools. Does this Malema realise that he is frightening away foreign investment, trying to take over foreign investments etc. and those are the ONLY places that new jobs will be created. I can't imagine one new job created by Malema Inc. Mining. Or Malema National bank either. IDIOT!!!!!!!!!

  • keng - 2011-09-14 18:22

    ANC is the biggest con trick ever pulled. Bunch of criminals suddenly find themselves in the bank vault. Eish but the world is stupid. Would have loved to see someone with backbone head government like Gatsha. The Xhosa (Mandela included) just threw it all away to a gang of nobodies.

  • letsee - 2011-09-14 21:38

    Malema is the ANC boss and bosses are not stopped.

      MSGRule - 2011-09-15 08:09

      @letsee - Ok letsee, I see your comment. JZ is a coward and is not dictator material so a mini me dictitator wanna be saw a gap and he is tryign to rule now.

  • Albatross - 2011-09-15 08:01

    "Through this policy, people have been placed in positions for which they are not qualified. It has seen competent people, from unions which are not aligned to the ruling party, being overlooked for positions." - isn't this the same logic that happily drives affirmative action except this time he is talking politics and not race..?

      MSGRule - 2011-09-15 08:12

      Edzachery...if you not anc you are screwed. Until all the jobs and the companies have been bankrupted and tainted. then they will come crawling back to try and fix the politic afirmatisation that has been happening the last 20 years

  • ndosithemba - 2011-09-15 08:37

    @George: "He helped tha apartheid racist regime kill black Africans". I totally agree with 100% correct Buthelezi is traitor it happen in 76 in Mzimhlophe when Inkatha killed people without any aparent reason in Tokoza as well Khumalo Str. Buthelezi must just shut up.

  • ndosithemba - 2011-09-15 08:51

    What is Buthelezi is saying in reality its true but it wont change his behaviour that his a traitor,"He helped the apartheid racist regime kill black Africans", PERIOD. why cant he step down from being an IFP President bcause he's got hiding agenda.

  • sam malindi - 2011-09-15 09:08
