I'm part of history, defiant Malema says

2011-11-10 23:07

Johannesburg - Defiant ANC Youth leader Julius Malema insisted on Thursday that he is part of the country's history, and "victory will be ours".

Just minutes after the ANC disciplinary committee had suspended him from the party for five years, Malema emerged from writing a political science exam at Unisa's Polokwane campus, and said he would appeal the sentence.

"I have made my contribution in this country. My name will be recorded in the history books of this country unless you want to teach people a distorted history.

"There's no way you will not mention this generation, a generation of fearless fighters," Malema told supporters, City Press' Xolani Mbanjwa
reported.

"The enemy will smile for these few minutes; victory is ours. Let the enemy enjoy, but that victory will not last. We are determined. We will be liberated by Mangaung 2012," he declared, surrounded by his close business and political associates,

"We won't apologise. The gloves are off. Let us confront them because their intention is very clear. They want to destroy the ANC Youth League. We must defend the ANCYL," he said to applause from his supporters, City Press said.

"The enemy will smile for these few minutes; victory is ours. Let the enemy enjoy, but that victory will not last. We are determined. We will be liberated by Mangaung 2012,” declared Malema, surrounded by his close business and political associates.

The firebrand leader criticised the hefty sentences meted out to him and league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, referring to some leaders within the ANC as sellouts. Shivambu received a three year sentence.

Chris Hani's image

He said the punishment would be a deterrent to future youth league leaders who would be scared to challenge ANC policies and to propose “radical” strategies

"If the president of the youth league is suspended for five years, the next president of the youth league will not be as radical as the suspended president because he will be scared that if he also speaks in the interest of the poor and the youth he will also be suspended," said Malema, who wore a black youth league T-shirt with slain SACP leader Chris Hani's image, according to City Press.

He said ANC leaders threw them "out of our own home and that cannot be left unchallenged".

Malema and Shivambu can submit an appeal against their suspension to the national disciplinary appeals committee within 14 days.

Despite being ordered to vacate his position as league president in terms of his suspension, Malema remains the youth league leader while he appeals his sentence.

The ANC's national disciplinary committee chairperson, Derek Hanekom, confirmed that Malema is still an ANC member and ANCYL president for the duration of the appeals process, and until a decision has been made, Beeld reported.

    So is Hitler. Now run along and be history you little toad.

      rbphiri - 2011-11-10 23:29

      Yes you are a part of history and now you are history. And it will be 5 years before history repeats itself. You should be using the period of your suspension to upgrade your wood work marks.

      Wayne - 2011-11-10 23:47

      Exactly what I was going to post, Julius, you my be remembered, pity you're not bright enough to realize that it will be for all the wrong reasons!!

      Dex - 2011-11-11 00:35

      I feel like singing... ? Hit the road Julius and don't you come back no more no more no more no more. ?

      This just shows his understanding of Democracy. Amazing the mentality. Dear Mr. Malema, Let me explain to you how democracy works. If you don't like what your political party does or stands for, you resign and you form your own party and promote your beliefs. You don't call your own party "the enemy". I am starting to question your motives. Is this an ego trip to get yourself into the history books? Are you really concerned about the well being of the downtrodden? No of course you aren't when you jet around attending R15 Million weddings and building yourself R15 Million houses! One leads by example. If Communism is your cup of tea, then raffle your Range Rover and C63 Merc at the Methodist Church in Orlando and move into the servant's quarters of Auntie Winnie's house. She is after all the Mother of our nation and takes no cr@p from anybody including police officers that stop her speeding at 170! You also need to get psychotherapy. If you are angry about the circumstances you were born into, then you can't run around at 30 and take your frustrations out on a whole constituency of people. Deal with your frustrations in private and then once you have sorted yourself out, come back into the public domain and start promoting causes that will truly uplift the country. Skip studying Political Science and change to B.Comm, so you first learn the basics of Economy. It might help you form a foundation on which you can base some sound principles to help you feed the People!

      This character appears to be totally bonkers and he probably is, but he does have the capacity to destroy the country and probably will.His suspension will not quieten him and the ANCYL will become even more difficult to control. This suspension will also go on to prove that Malema is not an exception in the ANC, and that the problems facing SA, lie much deeper than Malema. Many seems to think that if Malema disappears, most of the problems will too--.On the contrary

      VusiMabaso - 2011-11-11 05:27

      @Right. I have too much invested in my current field of training to give it up now. I need to graduate first and then maybe apply my training to the benefit of this country. But being only halfway through my course it wouldn't say much about my ability to start something and see it through if I give up now. But believe me I would love to help my Youth save themselves from a bleak future, because there is no roadmap for them.

      VusiMabaso - 2011-11-11 05:31

      @Dirk. True words spoken! This shows up the DEEP divisions within the party. But we should rejoice because if this "mongrel" organisation, that is trying to be too many things to too many people, starts fragmenting, then only will we get a real democracy. Currently we are at a crossroad and the road straight ahead leads to yet another African Dictatorship.

      Xavier7034 - 2011-11-11 06:29

      @Vusimabaso - I salute you - we need more of your ilk, and integrity speaking out for TRUE democracy in this beautiful country of ours.

      Ina - 2011-11-11 07:00

      @ Vusi. Once more the voice of reason and the way forward. With people like you I have hope for the future of our country. Don't take any notice of 'Right's' accusation of the 'Laager mentality'. You are on the right track. Democracy takes all it's citizen's hopes, fears and aspirations into the equation, and we are a very diverse society, which means great skill will be needed to get and keep our country on an even keel, and you seem to have a balanced view of our problems. Go for it!

      VusiMabaso - 2011-11-11 07:16

      @RA. I really take exception to the fact that you call us retards. As is the case in every social fibre of every nation, there will be radicalism and sober reasoning. By the sounds of your comment you don't seem to be a South African and in that case don't belittle my people if you are feeding off the fruits of our country. Help find a solution to our problems or book a flight back to where you came from.

      @RA - I am sorry, but do not generalize when talking about black ppl. We know that Julius does not have all the pages in the book - well actually his book is totally empty, but that does not give you reason to say that all blacks are not far from being retards. I have many black friends, and they are probably more intelligent than you.

      Alan - 2011-11-11 07:43

      @RA ... why dont you just Keep on Walking yourself. We don't need negative t*rds like you in SA. now run along.. taaRAaaaa

      John - 2011-11-11 07:47

      @RA Vusi consists of much more logic than you mate. Not to mention decency. I'd much rather stand alongside Vusi during an afternoon braai than hear your racist remarks. Bloody chop

      Felix - 2011-11-11 07:55

      RA GTFO with Juju you racist pig! Vusi has spent alot of time making brilliant comments and his thought processes are 2000 leagues deeper than yours. Take your little racist brain and FO to a country that suits you. We are the liberal people of SA and we all bleed red!

      kevlam4 - 2011-11-11 07:58

      @RA I take great exception to your attitude towards Vusi and ALL blacks in general. I have had the opportunity to mingle with many black persons, and they have proved to have far more insight to that blob Malema than you give them credit for. I am unashamedly WHITE and proud of the fact that there are people aruond us like Vusi who see things as they are.

      John - 2011-11-11 08:04

      @Right Unfortunately you are not much different from our own RA. You can't expect any one to take you seriously when you generalize as you do. I think it may be best to lock you and RA in the same room. Let's see who will be brave enough to throw the first punch? It's more fun being part of a civil society.

      Rene - 2011-11-11 08:15

      @RA, I'm all for opinions, but the worst is when people generalize and box groups and races. All races have their bad people, being it white, black, asian and other! This is not about race, but rather good vs bad, right vs wrong etc. @Vusi, your comments are supported by the majority (all races) - good on you! What's your major? Political Science? It sure sounds like it!!

      Right - 2011-11-11 08:15

      @John....look at your comment above the way you state "our own RA". Instead of isolating RA for his comments you still see him as one of you. You have proved my point...you are just a HYPOCRITE.

      Virginia - 2011-11-11 08:17

      No, no - you failed history together with woodwork

      John - 2011-11-11 08:22

      Yes very much rhetorically stated Right my dear Friend.

      VusiMabaso - 2011-11-11 08:23

      @Rene. LOL LOL No Rene it isn't Political Science!!!! I want to get a real job one day and earn real money. We have enough souls feeding off the tax payers, some of us will have start paying tax to keep a balance here!!!!

      Ina - 2011-11-11 08:24

      @ Right: No Right, you are wrong! Lots of whites (me included) gave RA thumbs downs, and quite a few also answered him (critically) so much for your 'Laager mentality'. And if you will pull out of YOUR laager, you will see plenty of whites who want to really to make our country work in full partnership with blacks if only we were allowed to do so by black people who only want to look at SAs problems through eyes like Malema's and his ilk. People like Vusi is the only way forward. (And by the way, and I am not defending RA, but he did not comment on Vusi, his comment was aimed at Malema, and NO I do not agree with RA, I think HE is the retard)

      Rene - 2011-11-11 08:29

      @Vusi, no man, we need people like you in government, some brain power and to ensure our tax money doesn't get spent on Centenary celebrations to mention one!

      @RA..,Where did you grow up? by the sounds of things it was in a toilet! Please take your sorry racist rants somewhere else.@Vusi.., I must once again commend you for the thought process you clearly put into each comment posted. A**holes like Right and RA have some serious homework to do when it comes to seeing where the country is going and need to rather put their heads back up the rear ends because that is the only place they seem to find any common sense.

      CyberDog - 2011-11-11 08:32

      @Ra, if there was any logic reasoning, or even the slightest reality on your comment, then by the same reasoning, you are the exact white proof that all us whites are retards... You clearly put a lot of thought and all your intellect into that comment, didnt you...

      Dirk - 2011-11-11 08:39

      Mr Malema proof once again that he is more equal than others. He is more worried about his name in the history books than with the cause at hand. He will destroy everyone and everything just to reap the benefit of his destructive work. He mentions that if his name isn't in the history books the teaching will be distorted. Just so you know Mr Malema, the history books are already being taught with distortion. So get in line. I sincerely believe this man must have been dropped on his head when he was a baby. And his mouth is like a septic tank, as soon as it opens there is just crap coming out of it. Mr Malema, I believe that you might have hit a nerve with the ANC and now you are playing with fire. Stop disrespecting your leaders and elders. History has shown that disrespecting your elders has led to severe punishment. Rather just say "Thank you sir, may I have another!"

      Dale - 2011-11-11 08:43

      This is a socioeconomic problem and Malema won’t be the last, what we fail to see is the desperate situation the masses are finding themselves in. People that are desperate want someone or something to blame, and look to extreme solutions, as in Germany in the 1930s. This problem will not go away. The ANC is failing to provide for the masses. Look around the squatter camps are growing daily, unemployment is at incredibly high levels. Drive past the lines of people lining the streets waiting for any kind of employment to provide for there basic needs. This man irrespective of his personal gains abilities, education, has hit the nerve right on the button this is a time bomb waiting to go off. Hitler’s policies were half-baked, racist clap-trap…but among the jumble of hysterical ideas Hitler showed a sure sense of how to appeal to the lowest instincts of desperate masses. Worryingly the ANC surely realizes that if the masses start looking for answers and the age old excuse of blaming all on “apartheid”, has worn thin, they will start losing there majority vote. Voters will start listening to any half-baked, nationalization, land grabs (if they believe it will improve there situation) clap-trap… these hysterical ideas will start appealing to the lowest instincts of the desperate masses. The ANC needs to start tackling the socioeconomic situation or I fear there will be many Malema’s to face in the future.

      Ina - 2011-11-11 09:10

      @ Right: I owe you an apology, I just read the further comment of RA re Vusi,and I stick to my opinion that RA must be the biggest retard ever to comment on news 24. We can do without him for sure

      Nkulekweni - 2011-11-11 09:12

      Wow. Its a long time since I read the comments on this site and came away cheerful. I really like the fact that people across racial lines agree that Malema and the likes of RA belong to one sad group of people who have never seen the need to grow up mentally. Dale you are right as long as poverty and high degrees of inequality exist, the country's stability is at stake. What I pray for is that a strong opposition to the ANC that sees the need to address this sad state of affairs headlong instead of holding 400 million rand parties with tax payers money will emerge. This is the time. DA are you up for the challenge?

      @RA - You are just as self righteous and arrogant as Malema. Infact, you employ the same methods of reasoning. Unfortunately, you are unable to view anything objectively, as you are selfish and egotistical. 1 Corinthians 13.1: "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal." You need to learn to love others and not just yourself..

      TamaraSays - 2011-11-11 10:44

      RA, you're also a toad. It's like looking at another Malema - just less rich, and on the other side of the idiot fence. Eish. Vusi, my man, don't concern yourself with mental midgets.

      Ian - 2011-11-11 13:06

      @ RA You are exactly the reason why there is radicalist politics in South Africa. You give radical, dictator types all the reason they need to push their agenda through. You seem very bigoted and poorly educated. I emplore you to move to a place like Antartica where no one can oppose your racist, poorly elaborated views. I also take exception to your view that you need to come down to our level. Your very poor use of the English language shows me that even your white supremacist brothers would be ashamed of your poor arguments spewed all over the internet today.

      Cindy - 2011-11-11 14:03

      @RA & Right I have watched the conspiracy theory doccies as well, have researched the new world order and so on and so forth.... I find them interesting, hell even fascinating HOWEVER I am not consumed by the theories espoused. Just like you want the freedom to express your theories/opinions on these pages so too do the rest of us; the difference is we try to use logic, reason and intellectual ability, you tend to use dogma, fantasy and personal attacks. News24 does indeed remove your comments, when asked to by the outraged majority. Is this wrong? Definitely not as you always seem to err on the side of bigotry

      Rolf - 2011-11-11 15:37

      @RA don't try to spread u and ur cult's views here, we're not interested in ur radical, illogical crap

      Dale - 2011-11-11 15:59

      @RA Something seems to have gone seriously wrong with the subediting and proof-reading of your self-indulgent verbose and misprint-ridden comments, which is further flawed by a mis-match between your vaulting theoretical ambitions and your scholarly limitations, notably your faulty grasp of anything and your inability to deliver a clear and consistent line of reasoned and logical argument, honestly “Boet” your verbosity is exceeded only by your stupidity

      John - 2011-11-11 19:14

      Is this ANC = Association of National Criminals, Abortion Murder and Genocide, crowd which tried to give Virodene = Benzene to 5 Million Aids sufferers? Attempted Genocide! Yes, same crowd. Zuma was there. Is this ANC = Association of National Criminals, Abortion Murder and Genocide, crowd which denied medical treatment to 5 Million Aids sufferers? Genocide! Yes, same crowd. Zuma was there. Is this ANC = Association of National Criminals, Abortion Murder and Genocide, crowd which has Killed 800 000 South African Babies by Abortion? Genocide! Yes, same crowd. Zuma was there. So what is different? The Europeans have dragged the USA into Libya: where there was no european population. Simply in Europe's sphere of influence, due to oil and illegal immigrants to Europe. 3 European countries were part of Codesa negotiations in South Africa, Britain, with France Mitterrand and Germany Schroeder supporting the ANC. To break the terms of Codesa agreement or spirit, such as a Judiciary subservient to the Executive, a non legal constitution, with 3 Conservative governments in Britain, France and Germany, while oppressing, exploiting and attacking legally, commercially, racially, european populations in South Africa, is not a good idea. It is looking for trouble, even if it just stops EU Aid to South Africa being stolen by ANC Stalinists. But Malema does not get European money. He does not understand. His brain does not reach that far, even if his greed does.

    OMG you just don't get it Malema, you are nothing more then a idiot that took away the oppertunity of the youth to help build towards a brighter future for them, you should hang your head in shame. You mislead and stole a whole generations future from them and I hope you get punished for that. Oh an for the record money does not make the man.

      Seems Lauden wants him to be president. Lauden...Malema will be forgotten. He has no more politcal influence because his gravy train is sinking ( or should I say ship ) no one will want to be associated with him now because he is just a ball on a chain His ideologies won't be forgotten and someone else will come to take his reigns and start the whole procees again. We have a long way to go, but believe me , Malema is in for futher suprises. we can celebrate the moment and we should try and all make a difference in this country if we want a future here.Zuma's has played by the rules and got rid of Malema. who will take on Zuma next ? They may just fear the same fate as malema.

    Malema Who?????? News24 readers lets boy cott all these stories on this loser, maybe News24 will get the message, we no longer care about this loser.

  • gabz.martini - 2011-11-10 23:52

    aarrrggg. Malema is really smart... start enough to know how to GET ON MY LAST NERVE!!!! that dude steams my clams!!!

  • smith.jason.scott - 2011-11-10 23:52

    Part of history....or consigned to history more to the point.

  • norman.buchalter - 2011-11-10 23:55

    May he be consigned to the history books as a diligent agitator for the rights of the poor and economically unliberated masses, but not as their real advocate or leader but as a politically ambitious and opportunistic demagogue who preached nationaliation but lived and loved materialism .

  • Peter - 2011-11-10 23:55

    Leave this blunderer to carry on with his ignorant diatribe! He has already fallen foul of his leaders. He has already attracted the attention of the law enforcers for his questionable financial dealings. He will now walk into the trap of sedition!

    Delusions of grandeur

      gaff.harrison - 2011-11-11 08:33

      More like delusions of adequacy for Juju?

  • Skinfaxi - 2011-11-11 00:38

    Sorry JuJu you've been voted off the Island :)

      Alan - 2011-11-11 08:25

      Pity - Robben island would have been perfect

      Skinfaxi - 2011-11-11 16:35

      Actually voting him off the planet wouldn't be a bad idea.

  • Dex - 2011-11-11 00:46

    The ANC just voted off the weakest link.

      Skinfaxi - 2011-11-11 01:41

      I thought he was the missing link.

  • RxeS3 - 2011-11-11 00:47

    dont pop the champers too soon, as long as the door of appeal is open i personally dont think he's leaving anytime soon. this could very well drag on for years, until then the ancyl is very much still the same. this could also be a smokescreen + appeal= reinstatement by anc, or jm just might start up his own pp, knowing the fairy tales he sprouts lures the poor.

  • rlong1952 - 2011-11-11 01:43

    Sad to say as well, he will appeal this sentence and it will be overturned or drastically reduced, we haven't heard the last of him unfortunately and he will continue to damage SA's image abroad.

  • welile.mji - 2011-11-11 02:03

    What history?? This guy is biggest fraud this country has ever seen. Taking advantage of poor people. All those who benefited from his dodgy deals must go down. He must go prison too. After next week he will be long forgoten and hopefully the Hawks will take over and do their job

      Andiswa - 2011-11-11 15:00

      you guys. Who cares about Julius Malema? The guy sang a song, man. Stop acting like he did anything more. It' is your kind, that make white people thing they can dansa over our heads now. Don't forget who you are bru. The ANCYL is not Julius Malema, and Julius Malema is not the ANCYL. The big question is, is this the ANC we want? Don't just comment nje, just. White people, we work with and drink an occassional beer with. Every white person that comments on this site would light a cigarette on your burning body if they got the chance. Ungalibali, mtshana.

  • arthurbrigg - 2011-11-11 02:25

    "I have made my contribution in this country." Please show me how many jobs you provided for the youth, how many houses you built, how you improved our economy. Oh wait, my bad... you did buggerall for the youth or for your country... except sow division, spread idiocy and eat sushi off naked girls with your tender enriched buddies. To me you will be happily forgotten.

      Had - 2011-11-11 08:36

      I think that he has built 3 houses. All for himself.

  • Azurite - 2011-11-11 02:43

    You were part of history you creepy crawly!

  • arron.gwinnett - 2011-11-11 03:26

    A part of History, please dont make me laugh. What has Malema done that is historical. The only history you are part of is the Farcical rubbish and stupid utterances that you have supplied. People will look back at your name and tell many jokes about you after the hurt and pain you have brought to the SA economy

      frank.fay1 - 2011-11-11 06:41

      100%right arron

      Had - 2011-11-11 08:38

      We had the van der Merwe jokes. Juju has provided enough ammunition for Malema jokes. Lets hear some.

      Ronald - 2011-11-11 09:57

      Had, you asked for it. Tutu arrives in heaven and is greeted by St Paul.Tutu asks St Paul,”Why are there so many clocks arranged in a row behind the pearly gates?”. St Paul responds,”Every person on earth has a clock in heaven.The clocks start at 12 o’ clock and ticks one minute for every sin the owner of the clock commits.For example,Mother Theresa’s clock did not move one minute,Abraham Lincon finished on five past twelve and yours is at two minutes past twelve. Tutu asks,”Where is Julius Malema’s clock?”. St Paul replies,”Oh,we are using his clock in HQ as a fan!”.

  • basil.milton3 - 2011-11-11 04:01

    Juju just walk away. It will be better for S.A. You claim to be a champion for the poor while you flaunt your riches for everyone to see. Please just f... off.

  • Chaapo - 2011-11-11 04:40

    And to history you have been consigned, thank goodness. Even the worst tyrants are also part of history so it is nothing to gloat about.

  • Chaapo - 2011-11-11 04:55

    It is because he knows he cannot fit anywhere else which makes his desperate and makes him work hard to stake his claim of history to make himself relevant. What other skills can he offer apart from just blowing hot air – well, part from the vaunted past skills of bringing tires for burning and lately, marching? As my grandfather used to advise me, be careful that you are not used like the skewer on a rotisserie to turn things in the heat of the moment, but when the deed is done you are discarded. Yes that was what Malema failed to realize; that he was a tool for the moment instead of the delusions of grandeur he still carries. Some would liken his thinking to a schizoaffective condition.

      Silvana - 2011-11-11 05:31

      "It is because he knows he cannot fit anywhere else" Wrong Chaapo! I've got the perfect spot for him on my small holding. The rubbish pit.

  • Anne - 2011-11-11 05:10

    You are the weakest link, goodbye

  • Silvana - 2011-11-11 05:10

    This has become a farce. He's suspended and he carries on. He's like a yapping dog, just doesn't stop. If hw is suspended, why is he allowed to remain the leader? Surely he must vacate his position pending the outcome of the appeal. What we need now is for the Hawks to act swiftly so that his verbal diarrhoea is muzzled once and for all.

  • Neeus - 2011-11-11 05:14

    Underestimate the future here at your peril! The party and Malema are tied to a common future as displayed by the supporters he has. Do not take this spin at face value or you will live to regret it. These people are worse than snakes, they are lying in wait to bite as you walk past... Mark my words.

  • raymond.kok3 - 2011-11-11 05:21

    he never spoke on behalf of the poor he used the poor and the poor idiots are too stupid to make up their own minds you and mugabe were cast from the exact same mold ,you can be bold but than dont use the missery of others to promote yourself i will see you in hell adios o dumb one

      tony.mollagrean - 2011-11-11 05:47

      I am glad Malema is gone. (or so we hope) But lets not forget that his support base is still out there. These are the poor in our society and they are not going to go away in a hurry. The next person to come along and offer some hope will be the flavor of the day. The government must grasp this problem as the most important at this time and put in place a system that helps to pull these poorer folk out of the seemingly hopelessness and offers them meaningful employment even although it might not be the best paid. Just remember that if you sweep the problem under the carpet the problem is still there. In a while you trip over the lump in the carpet. The way to solve this problem is to engage all businesses in this country both large and small and pose the problem to our business leaders. One thing I know about South Africans is that we are not mean spirited and we are ingenious at solving problems. The government and JZ have given themselves a breathing space. I say use this wisely. If you think it cant work, I say just visit China once and you will see how employment solves social problems. Just a thought JZ

  • Silvana - 2011-11-11 05:26

    "Malema emerged from writing a political science exam at Unisa's Polokwane campus" LOL. I think you should demand a refund from UNISA Fatboy, they obviously haven't taught you anything. Political Science indeed. Hahahahahahaha this gets funnier every day. Would love to know the results of his exams.

  • Erkkie Quasha Quest - 2011-11-11 05:41

    The media doesn't seem to realize that it's one very strong tool Malema has as an ally. It has helped build him and I'm not sure it will be easy for it to break him as his supporters simply dismiss all negative publicity of him and reveres the positives.

  • Thandi - 2011-11-11 05:43

    Can't the moron tell the difference between 'being part of history' and 'being history'. Lets just hope the hawks, SARS and the PP have the courage shown by the ANCorruption.

  • dkorzennik - 2011-11-11 06:06

    Vusi Mabaso for ANCYL President! You go guy. No emotional nonsense, no racism trump cards, has a brain, has integrity.

      Bob - 2011-11-16 08:24

      dkorzennik, no way Vusi wasted as ANCYL president, I want to see him as DA president then we can look forward with confidence.

  • Chumscrubber1 - 2011-11-11 06:26

    Speaks in the interests of the poor from his R16 million mansion, wearing his R250k Breitling watch. How on earth are people fooled into believing this creature has any interest at all besides himself? Amazing. Must admit, he can't be that doff if he is studying for a degree, means he must have a matric exemption? Pity political science is considered a worthy degree - in this country it certainly is a way to make money. Political entrepreneurs rather than leaders - thats what the ANC consists of.

  • Chirpy - 2011-11-11 06:27

    I don't know about other Forum contributors but I'm so deathly sick of 'Fatboy's' rants and tantrums. His hero Chris Hani and Peter Makoba are history but alas that book's closed numty, you're too much of a glutton for the good things in life - a lifestyle that few across the racial spectrum have ever experienced or are likely to. If your 'Political Science' exam (in a pig's ear)has taught you anything it should be to lead by example and lets face it you're no fitting example.

  • Karoo - 2011-11-11 06:29

    The ANC has done a brave and visionary thing, and tonight, for the first time in a decade, I have real hope for South Africa. I am taking my hat off to you Mr. Zuma, as well as the rest of the senior leadership of the ANC. Well done. I am an Afrikaner, but I certainly do not only care for the well-being of Afrikaners. I deeply care for the well-being of all South Africans, especially the desperate people in the townships. Mr. Malema tapped into their frustration and anger, but I did not hear any real answers or vision from his side - he just regurgitated the failed "solutions" that has crippled Africa since the fires of the Uhuru started in the 1960s. I am getting tired of holding the example of Mugabe up to light, but that is exactly where RSA would have been heading under Malema's leadership. But let us not forget the big issue - the desperate poverty of millions of poor people in our townships. We just have to come up with real solutions, so that the Malema type of exploitative leadership will never again be considered by many as their only hope.

      Alan - 2011-11-11 07:57

      They may have done the right thing .. but it is only for the ANC's own political reasons. Politics doesnt get much dirtier than in SA.

  • Kung - 2011-11-11 06:35

    Just wait for the appeal process to come to a conclusion, before we start to rejoice. The sentance may still be reduced so that the idiot can be back for December 2012

  • Cheech - 2011-11-11 06:37

    I have often visited the ANCYL web page...no surprises there. Nothing happens on it, no progress reports on initiatives...nothing.The stories about helping the poor are false, misleading and sadly not true. The only initiative is to enrich themselves...this much is obvious but the followers are easily led to believe rhetoric against whites being their nemisis. How sad.

  • Cheech - 2011-11-11 06:42

    ...and...lets see really how "powerful" he is. People tend to gravitate AWAY from failure and as such tender opportunities will dry up and so will his "business" partners become more and more unavailable. Right now they will seem to support him because no one knows what to expect...i guess we have to watch this space. However...it's now a brilliant time to step up investigations against him & his cronies for illegal business dealings and his stupid family trust...ne?

  • africanwolf - 2011-11-11 06:48

    The only thing that will save this country from anarchy is reintroducing military service for all youth , irrelevant of race. encourage local manufacturing, by restricting cheap Chinese imports, in a way of heavy import duties. uplift the standard of education and police training. lifting the salaries of police , by letting go unnecessary government workers, as they endanger their lives. patrol SA borders and stop illegal immigrants from coming here (we have enough poor people to support) jail all officials that involved in corruption. don't give bail to rapists and murderers. government support for small business, by training and loans.

  • Gerhardus - 2011-11-11 06:56

    Not very smart keeping him on as the leader for the ANCYL,while applying for appeal. He will be busy in the next 14 days.

      Ubabamkhulu - 2011-11-11 07:56

      If I understand it correctly, Malema has been suspended with immediate effect, he must leave his office. He has 14 days to appeal. He should be out and he should not be able to do any more harm from the inside.
