DA lacks understanding, says ANCYL

2012-06-26 16:48

Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance lacks historical understanding, the ANC Youth League said on Tuesday after the opposition party laid a charge of intimidation against league deputy president Ronald Lamola.

"The ANCYL dismisses the allegations... and clarifies that there has been a consistent assertion... calling on those who own majority of the land... to act in a responsible manner and volunteer the land to the indigenous people," ANC Youth League spokesperson Magdalene Moonsamy said in a statement.

"The ANCYL has always been calling for a legislation or act that will be as forceful as a war," she said.

Earlier this month, Lamola told a media briefing in Pretoria that Section 25 of the Constitution should be amended to allow for a change in land reform policy.

"The only solution is expropriation without compensation."

If white South Africans did not hand over land to poor blacks, there could be land invasions like those that took place in Zimbabwe, he warned.

Last week, AfriForum Youth laid a charge of intimidation against Lamola.

Chairperson Charl Oberholzer said the organisation would also proceed with a charge of hate speech against Lamola in the Equality Court.

Moonsamy said the ANCYL would not retreat from its position on the expropriation of land without compensation.

"The position of the ANCYL communicated by the deputy president has been the posture of the ANCYL since its formation and prior," she said.

    ANCYL lacks a brain, says South Africa

      I can't see anyone in the photo, just a pair of dim-white eyes on a yellow background.

      Yeah! Pop that zit Lamola!

      Christelle - 2012-06-26 17:07

      Does Moonsamy realise that she will not get any land, considering her surname, I assume she is not indigenous. Back to the point - ANCYL - you lack understanding of eononomy, bilateral talks, tact, etc etc -----and you need to learn to stop picking yourself in public!

      setlabotjha.moroahae - 2012-06-26 17:40

      We can comment all we like in these platforms giving our addresses where we could be found but the fact of the matter is that this issue needs to be discussed and if we become arrogant and dismissive as we are, then we are just fueling the situation to get worse. The people we call names leads young black people we see in service delivery protests on weekly basis so we should be very careful I mean very careful.

      OMG! Will they ever learn to think before they speak? Ignorance of the facts is evident when they call themselves Indigenous People - The earliest representatives of South Africa's diversity – were the San and Khoekhoe peoples (otherwise known individually as the Bushmen and Hottentots or Khoikhoi; collectively called the Khoisan)They inhabited Africa for thousands of years before the Bantu-speaking people who only moved into the north-eastern and eastern regions from the north of Africa only a few hundred years before the Europeans. THESE ARE FACTS - IGNORANT MORONS! As for what Black people do with this land once they get it - FACTS! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2032588/Black-farmers-South-Africa-cash-selling-land-given-government--whites-originally-owned-farms.html THEY SELL IT BACK TO MAKE A QUICK BUCK, BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE HOW TO RUN IT! So, if you want the truth about why the willing buyer-willing seller model doesn't work, READ THE FACTS and don't come spouting your uneducated, ignorant bulls*it to your so-called followers. Simple cANCerous policy - keep them uneducated and hungry, continue to blame it on the "Regime" which died 18 years ago, and keep the promises rolling off your lying tongues! YOU WILL KILL THIS COUNTRY!

      Jellyarse - 2012-06-26 18:44

      What is it that these previously advantaged racist verkrampte Boer do not understand? Why should we have to work for the land - we wekked so hard 18 years ago, in your gadden, in your laundry, cleaning your pools and braai grids, nows the time to reap the rewards after all, it's so much nicer to get something for nothing than have to work hard for it! And then, when we take the land back, we really make our money because we'll sell it back to these greedy colonists at half the price we pay for it, like we have with the 30% already re-distributed! Haaaai Boetie, we're going to build a solid nation here alright! Viva Uncle Bobiaan! Viva Ghadaffi! Viva PW Botha for all he's armed us with!

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-26 17:04

      Why do they only want the occupied land that has been worked? What about all the rest of the land that the ANC owns? Why can't they give the people that land?

  • Johan - 2012-06-26 17:12

    Leaders should be very careful with their choice of words. They have influence and whilst they might not mean to incite violence their choice of words could have exactly that consequence. How people lower down may interpret the words should always be considered. War in SA terminology must be understood in the fight against apartheid which was violent. That is how the man in the street is going to interpret the word. That is how the ANCYL want it to be interpreted.

  • indianajohn - 2012-06-26 17:14

    The irony here is almost hilarious.

  • Setso Ratlou - 2012-06-26 17:14

    First it was the then ANCYL President Julius Malema summouned to Equality Court and all sorts of allegations labelled agaisnt him, now the deputy president of the youth league will be going through the same thing again. That means the ANCYL is doing good with reference to protecting the poor and naking it clear that land redistribution should be given a serious thinking but the question is how will mean to the ANC disciplinary committee since Lamola as he continues where Malema left off?

      Christelle - 2012-06-26 17:21

      Setso, I believe most right-thinking South Africans are aware of the fact that there needs to be a change in the economic wealth in our country. It needs to be done in a proper and responsible manner. You cannot have leaders shouting war talk, threats to land-owners, accompanied by constant farm murders. What impression does it give. And whilst all of this is happening, the ANC and the leadership is in constant battle within itself, fraud, corruption and theft of taxpayers money is in the news every day. Do you think that is acting responsibly. We need to be civilised about this issue, and I can tell you, even the people you might regards as whiteys and right-wingers are prepared for talks

      Why mention Zille Malusi? Concerned?? I told somebody yesterday and I will tel you this too. Da will not win the next election, but she WILL get another province - one that has already been screwed up by the ANC. She will bring great changes for the people in that province in the period up to the election after 2014. The people will start realising the her party does what they say they will do.......then wait for the next election. That is how you eat an elephant malusi, one bite at a time

      Christelle - 2012-06-26 17:46

      @ gmashibini - it is not about DEFEAT my friend, it is about a country moving forward and a sound, sober, and proper manner. Not like in the day of the caveman. (Can I tell you, we just want a government and leaders who are responsible in their policies and actions)

      colin.dovey - 2012-06-26 17:52

      @Malusi: THIS is what you wrote above: "Hellen mst 1st knw dt blacks r running SA. D rest wl follow" Did you mean: "Helen must first know that blacks are ruining South Africa. The rest will follow?" Please clarify........cs u sed it....

      Christelle - 2012-06-26 18:06

      @Craig - the only why you eat an elephant is one bite at a time. The way you are talking about is SOOOOOO African. Finish the whole damn thing in one shot, and then be hungry - so sad and typical. The way we have learned to eat it, is to ensure it is longlasting. That is why I suppose in the Western, civilised countries you do not have such poverty, hunger and outstretched begging hands like in Africa

      Billy - 2012-06-26 18:24

      ja craig you see that is wrong and it needs to change. eat the elephant in one go. so many things the black community does applies to that way of thinking. first and most important thing to stop being treated like that is the pay check. friday night your a hollywood star, saturday morning you are previously disadvantaged again, monday you are asking for a loan at the accountant from the petty cash drawer. then you blame the white man.

      Shane Kelly - 2012-06-26 18:27

      Billy - 2012-06-27 04:07

      oh yea forgot to mention, you sharing the elephant for everyone works when you live in the bush or if you gone camping. if you want to live in a house, drive a car, go to work, send your children to school/uni sharing the elephant will not work. do you understand why?

    The problem with these discussions is that they are not sober. Fighting fire with more fire. What we need is discussions that are contructive and with give and take. Its not politicians that have answers to these issues but communities. There is a problem with the skewed ownership of wealth and resources that is not sustainable. If we not engage and resolve them it will leave room for zealots and bigots to use that to their own benefit. Me thinks!

    The issue of the land is by far a thorny issue which needs to be addressed asap by the ruling party and by enlarge our white counter parts. Ancyl is out of order to suggest that the land must be taken by force.they make us blacks look like we blood thirsty and ready to kill the whites.The land must be shared equally by all who leaves in it. minority can not own the majority of the land.

      xander.v.berg - 2012-06-26 18:46

      @tumi- Finally a sensible person. I am ashamed of most comments made by all- regardless of race/ colour. I am white- I think as not even the Botha family is of "pure" white stock. Refer to the book by Hermann Giliomee, The Afrikaners. I certainly do not agree with land restitution without compensation however the system followed currently isnt working either in the majority of cases. The reason being is that its not available land that is needed but instead the resources, education, skills and Technology. How can SA and Africa as a whole move forward without using all the resources available to it- this includes all of us.

      Billy - 2012-06-26 19:32

      there are south african farmers in russia busy changing their POISONED land back into fertile usuable soil. (yes sa farmers are that good) just think what they could of done for our country if they were given the chance instead of being chased away like a bad dog.

    Did the ANCYL ever ask themselves what went wrong in Zimbabwe after Rhodesia? People are fleeing the country on a daily basis looking for a better future in South Africa(mostly). Why? Because there are still white farmers supplying the markets with food. Mugabe's children are in the best universities while his people are starving. Just my opinion - you don't have to agree.

    Lamula needs to rethink his talk. Has all land that is not owned by anyone issued to those who want land. Is there a document detailing people that want land according to constitutions. And are there any whites who have declined to give back land, what of Africans that have more land than Whites what is there fate. Dont make this a racist plot.

    What is it that these previously advantaged racist verkrampte Boer do not understand? Why should we have to work for the land - we wekked so hard 18 years ago, in your gadden, in your laundry, cleaning your pools and braai grids, nows the time to reap the rewards after all, it's so much nicer to get something for nothing than have to work hard for it! And then, when we take the land back, we really make our money because we'll sell it back to these greedy colonists at half the price we pay for it, like we have with the 30% already re-distributed! Haaaai Boetie, we're going to build a solid nation here alright! Viva Uncle Bobiaan! Viva Ghadaffi! Viva PW Botha for all he's armed us with!

    Farmers can just stop supplying food for one month so the people can get to understand what they are worth.

      If you say that? do you mean people will starve,to tell you people have been doing farming for ages all over the world,we know that we need to plant to harvest for food.We dont surrender to the greedy who need more to enrich themselves while people are dying who cant even work in their fertile land to make food for themselves.Look at the chinese how they work.

    Don't worry farmers, they take the debt with the land

    The anc do not understand that the Khoisan also own what is now called KZN! Just go up the hill to Indedima Gorge and check out the "Bushman" paintings! That is all the evidence that we need to say... "The Zulus came to KZN last"! I like the name "Bushmen." It is respectful of their way of life. Who the heck knew the bush better than them? Bushmen it is!

    This political bickering about the land question,once more show an extend in which the present administration has failed to resolve very pertinent issues in our country.One,The land issue is not as simple as the DA will thank,it is sentimental,political,economic and formed a foundamental pillar for freedom struggle.So for the DA to dismiss it as a simply transgression of the law,realy is like they only know South African history post 1994.Understand me,i m not advocating anarchy but the DA instead of taking the leaders of the youth league to court they should have tried to come up with a solution that will ultimately enhance the resolution of the land issue amicably.\r\n\r\nThe ANC tried the trick of expelling Julius Malema from its ranks thinking that will bring a closure to the debate but this will not help because the majority of our people believe something must be done to address this.So opening a criminal case against who ever advocating for equatable land redistribution thus not come any near in resolving it

    How about the tenderpreneurs and ANC cadres hand over land to poor blacks. Julius must give up his R16 million house for starters. Followed by Motsepe.

    ANCYL lacks understanding, says Sinudeity.

    Moonsamy should remember that African history repeats itself time and time again... Idi Amin also squeezed the whites out of Uganda, promising the masses the riches of the oppressors. Five years later the masses were still starving and baying for blood. Then he drove the Asians out. At the end of it all, only Amin and his close comrades enjoyed the spoils. The purge in SA has begun with the land issue, but let us not forget the 23 Asian shops looted and burnt in the Free State last week. Be careful what you wish for Ms Moonsamy,.... one of these days you will realise who Naidoo
