Political lifeline for Malema

2011-12-18 22:30

Polokwane - Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale’s re-election as provincial ANC chairperson signalled a need for policy shift and leadership change at next year’s ANC national elective conference in Mangaung, his jubilant supporters said.

Hours after Mathale’s victory against challenger Joe Phaahla, his supporters charged that the outcome of the tense conference at the University of Limpopo near Polokwane sent a clear message that he was “clean” and ready to lead his province towards “economic freedom”.

They told City Press that the election results, which saw Mathale defeat Phaahla by 601 votes to 519, showed that President Jacob Zuma had committed “political suicide” by suspending ANC Youth League (ANCYL) president Julius Malema and later taking over half of the Limpopo provincial government departments.

A confident Malema stopped at the main entrance on his way out, punched his fist in the air in jubilation and joined the crowd in song and dance, before speeding away.

Malema was flanked by his confidants, Clifford Motsepe and ANCYL secretary general Sindiso Magaqa.

Topple Zuma


He clearly was aware that Mathale’s victory not only potentially offered him a political lifeline, but was a major boost to his efforts to topple Zuma.

Thulani Twala, an ANCYL leader from the Mopani region, said the outcome showed that the people of Limpopo had a lot of confidence in Mathale’s leadership. “I feel great. The result has sent a message of confidence to the people of Limpopo and I think it will clear Mathale’s name.

He will lead Limpopo on the road to economic freedom. This result sets us on the correct path towards what we believe should happen in Mangaung particularly on policy shift,” Twala said.

After the confirmation of the results a group of women sang their lungs out in jubilation next to the main entrance to the university.

Blowing whistles and clad mainly in ANC regalia, including kangas, they intensified their chanting of songs mocking Zuma and accusing him of having betrayed Malema.

“O le mene mene wena shower [Zuma]. Orekisitse Malema [You are a sell-out, you shower. You sold Malema out]”, they chanted.

Lies

One of them, Whisker Manotwane, from the Phooko Ratsoma branch in Sekhukhune, said she was pleased because Mathale’s named had been “cleared” by the election results.

“They said Mathale is a thief. They must stop spreading lies about him. Mathale is ours. We go everywhere with him. Zuma has committed political suicide,” Manotwane said.

Another Mathale supporter, who did not want her name to be published because she worked for a municipality run by his opponents, said “we want people to learn not to spread rumours without evidence. We have elected a person we like. We like Mathale and want him to be fired only when there is evidence”.

Mathale’s second term was a bitter pill to swallow for Phaahla’s supporters.

Some were inconsolable and claimed Mathale won by “crookery”.

Sad day

A disappointed Limpopo businessman, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of victimisation, said: “It is a sad day for Limpopo.

"I have been receiving calls from as far as Gauteng. People are asking themselves, ‘What is wrong with Limpopo?’. Despite all of the problems, they still elected this man.

And they lump us together. [It was] probably rigged. It is not possible for him to win.”

But Mathale’s supporters said Phaahla’s supporters had sour grapes.

Mathale’s re-election was “inevitable” because he had performed his duties diligently, they added.

    Congratulations to Cassel Mathale but I can almost predict what is going to happen. Just as Jacob Zuma and Gwede Mantashe could not stomach Julius Malema's unanimous re-election as president of the ANC Youth League and decided to prefer disciplinary charges against him, the same thing is going to happen to the ANC provincial leadership. They are going to say that the ANC in Limpopo is dysfunctional because it is riddled with factionalism and then disband the leadership and go ahead to appoint a task team which will carry out their wishes and instructions. It does not take a genius to figure out that one. Just watch the space. But the ANC in Limpopo should resist that.

      colin.dovey - 2011-12-19 08:29

      @Queenie your poor knowledge of English has, unfortunately, led you to arriving at an incorrect conclusion, and there wrongly berating the person concerned with your misplaced diatribe on religion......In the context in which "Lord" was used......i.e. "Warlord" it is 100% correct, and in fact, you and @squeegee may actually, and ironically, be on the same page! - here is the correct meaning for your edification: Warlord = "Supreme military leader exercising civil power in a region especially one accountable to nobody when the central government is weak" Put that in your Christmas Cracker and smoke it....pompous is too kind a word for your ilk.

      rbczovczov - 2011-12-19 08:35

      @Queenie, please spare me your "He cares" crap. Julius is only concerned about Julius which is why he is living in a multi-million rand mansion while you are still living in a shack and still singing his praise like a senseless retard. Get your head out of Julius a$$ and maybe you might smell reality.

      Azande - 2011-12-19 08:36

      All of you who are against Cassel re-election, if you are not in or from Limpopo, just shove a huge amount of water down yo throat and back off. POWER TO THE VOICE OF THE MAJORITY.

      Walter - 2011-12-19 07:24

      Yes, and I hope that this is the beginning of the demise of the ANC and their bigoted "leaders" who are immature and irrational! Vote with your heads and let's get a Government which is worthy and show the world we are not another banana republic in Africa!!!

      Ian - 2011-12-19 08:23

      @Queenie - Seriously, you can read and write, please USE those skills now and research your corrupt idol JuJu, before making irrational and emotional comments.

      Queenie - 2011-12-19 10:07

      @Ian. What I must research JuJu? I search him already and I found the new saviour of Msanzi. What I must research. You go search your wife! You have bad mouth! @Stephan.Why I scare you? You must visit me, I not at whitch doctor. I give you tea and we talk nice! About ANC and JuJu and then I give you nice food. You don't have to be scared of me. That is problem with white people, they scared of us black people. We happy people and we dance all the time!

  • Jim - 2011-12-18 23:00

    As I've said previously.......The ANC always lacked depth with respect to political competence, discipline and integrity. Over the last 14 or so years the upper crust has been lost......what remains is, as Mangosuthu Buthelezi once noted on another topic "to Ghastly To Contemplate" these remaining "out of touch with the real world" corrupt idiots are at very best simply leeches on South African taxpayers and society.....This is a constant de-nominantor that must be factored into the prospects of South Africas furure going forward...

  • leko.dada1 - 2011-12-19 00:04

    @Joel dat might happen only if Zuma really enjoy support in most provinces [which I doupt]Zuma is only sure abt kzn. His hopes in E.cape depends on SACP members governing the province.in all other provinces except kzn margin number of any winner might be similar to Polokwane one! watever happens in Mangaung we will stl vote for ANC,not because we uneducated but for making sure DA lose hope unlike local elections...where they introduced another form of discriminating/dividing South Africans by class/language or fronting by colour,genda and service delivery. FOR POLOKWANE BROTHERS N SISTERS WHO ARE NOT HAPPY WITH MATHALA'S RE-ELECTED...SORRY GUYZ! THIS IS WORKING DEMOCRACY, NEXT TIME IF U WANT TO WIN STOP USING CORRUPTION ALLEGATIONS AS A STRATEGY AGAINST OTHER GROUP,BE SIMPLE PRACTICAL AND ATTRACTIVE IN STRATEGY FOR VOTES.

      gavinoleary68 - 2011-12-19 11:41

      Unfortunately this is not a democratic process. You may have a voting process but there is no governance, no way to guarantee the process has no intimidation, 'incentives', vote-rigging, voter exclusion etc. What you see at these ANC conferences is a form of oligarchy (look it up if you do not know what it means). You show your immaturity by suggesting that one can be practical in the ANC to attract votes. If the majority of people at the conference have personal gain by siding with Mathale then of course they are going to vote for him and his faction. It isn't about raising all people up, it is about raising the elite clique up. If the elite clique are the ones voting, they will vote for themselves. In an oligarchy there is no point taking a moral high-ground, logic and community service will never win against the immoral self-serving delegates we saw at the Limpopo conference.

  • Jacques - 2011-12-19 00:21

    If I may resort to mythical metaphors here, the ANC has become a schizophrenic Hydra: a creature with multiple heads that has turned on itself and is ripping its own bodyparts to pieces. The traditional resort to sentiment to gain votes by hiding behind big names (Mandela, Thambo, etc.) will soon be useless: how will the average ANC-voter vote for, say, Zuma, if Malema is in the very same party? Same with this newest clown to jump in the ring. His fans will upset Zuma's will not get along with Malema's will not tolerate Nzimande's... back to the Hydra image: nom nom nom!

  • Shoe - 2011-12-19 03:15

    If I were the people of Limpopo (And trust me, I'm overjoyed to be not), I would not shout just yet, as there is still a lot of wood to go through. In anything, this supposed win for Malema is going to intensify Zuma's campaign for re-election in other provinces. And ridiculing him while he is still the sitting president of the self-same organization is not going to help Limpopo much. Watch Zuma's iron fist as he hits back. In the meantime go get more popcorn!

      Ben - 2011-12-19 04:21

      Or it might be safer for Limpopo's people if they become a province of Zimbabwe. The character of their leaders seem to be acceptable to our friend Mugabe. Thus they can escape the wrath of Zuma.

      Vegi - 2011-12-19 07:21

      I marvel at the rightwing support that Zuma is getting lately. This is a godsend for us. He is now tainted for good. Our people will see him for what he is and perhaps not vote for him in Mangaung.

  • Max - 2011-12-19 05:34

    The sadest part of the Limpopo outcome is that the poorest of the poor wil keep on voting for these thugs. I am beginning to develop a different kind of respect for these poor people because they are willing to persist in voting for these thieves and by doing so, life in poverty for some or other greater cause that I do not understand.

      Xolani Ziqubu - 2011-12-19 05:48

      The poor did not vote for him. The last thing poor people are concerned about is a provicial confrence where tenderprenuers were josling for a bigger slice of the cake. No sir he was elected by 662 of his freinds ( vote rigging is also suspected). So before you around makin assumption check out the facts.

      Max - 2011-12-19 06:27

      Xolani, that is exactly the problem with our voting system/democracy. The poor people vote for the ANC comes voting time, the ANC appoints whom ever they whant in what ever position they whant under the pretence that it is the will of the people. So I say again, I am beginning to respect their choice of poverty because that is what it is.

      Vegi - 2011-12-19 07:13

      Max, you want us to vote for thugs who allow you to steal the country's wealth. I rather vote for thugs who steal for themselves (especially that this allegation of stealing is unproven).

      Azande - 2011-12-19 08:46

      @Xolani, checking facts is indeed essential before one make assumptions. I hope you practise the same as well. The last time I checked, this was an elective conference. That means, all 1020 that voted were delegates from every corner of Limpopo. In essence, poor people were represented by mandated representatives.

  • Ian - 2011-12-19 05:56

    yip malema sped off to his johnny walker blue at his mansion in sandton, while you lot walk back to your shacks in your informal settlements, enjoy it dimwits, nothings going to change except you getting poorer and your anc and ancyl getting richer, have fun

      Dream on. Something is going to change when we reclaim our land and nationalize your riches (mines, banks, big industries, etc).

      Ian - 2011-12-19 08:36

      @Vegi - do you know what will happen? Juju and his cronies will get RICHER and you will stay poor, and possibly even become poorer. Please stop being stupid, your allowed an education now, its YOUR OWN FAULT if you choose not to use it.

      You are a liar. I was in Limpompo recently. The taps are running. The cars are moving on the road. People go to work. Your claim that nothing is working confirms you as a delusional rightwinger.

  • Darkie - 2011-12-19 06:48

    White people pretend to be so afraid of Malema when they're really afraid of any black realist who tells it as it is. Just look at how they reacted to Tutu when he said that those white people who benefited from apartheid should be taxed accordingly. They need weak people in the ANC to protect them and while they repeatedly say that they'll never vote for black party. The administrations of Mandela, Mbeki and Zuma all ignored real economical issues just to keep the white man happy. That time is slowly coming to an end. We ARE going to share the profits of our natural resources.

      Moss Mphahlele - 2011-12-19 07:22

      Be careful what you say about the white man, my friend. We actually need them. Unfortunately black run governments just don't work.Well for the politicians maybe, but not for the people. We have the rest of Africa to look at, if you don't believe me.

      Ian - 2011-12-19 08:39

      @Darkie and @Moses - You cast the racism card, but YOU are the only ones using colour denominations to describe the people commenting on these forums. As far as can be read the comments regard economic, political and social viewpoints - regardless of race. Please go back to the drawing board, go set up a Pro-ANC comment without using the words race, white, black and coloured, AND possibly then you will be taken seriously.

      Mpho Ndlovu - 2011-12-19 08:49

      The anc is just giving something to complain about by being so generaly corrupt, wherever you go in africa the white skin doesnt mean anything to the people, whiter are nothing but fellow citizens of a country they are the ones who does everything to befriend a black, in sa by being white, poor, very few of them are, or well off, give the rats some royal status, dont want to taint themselves with the black barbarian, and they will do and say anything to mantain that. They keep on saying look the rest of africa where a black man is the leader, what they realy mean is up there the white skin doesnt give u any status, whites are living in shacks live everybody else, in sa the weak anc govt is mantaining their status and protecting their wealth, the black man is still an underdog, people like juju are a nigthmare to them. Not that i hate whites, i am just tired of being the one who is always holding the olive branch to them, while they are buzzy bashing my head and calling me a barbarian. Enough is just enough. They dont give a damn about any black man, mandela included, they just tolarate the old man becouse he has done everything a black man can do to have them and their wealth protected

      Azande - 2011-12-19 08:51

      @Moss, so true. I see it applies to some of our black folkes as well, Darkie to be specific, coz the article has nothing to do with race. its a report about Limpopo elections and the possible effects to Zuma.

      Mpho Ndlovu - 2011-12-19 09:39

      @azande, true, the article on itself has nothing to do with race, but i beg u please, just read the comments made by the whites in here, the people at polokwane have made their choice. When u read carefuly with an open mind, u cant help but to notice that the whites are not happy with the peoples choice just becouse mathale is alligned with juju. The whites are calling the deligates stupids, pigs, barbarians, uneducates, bustards, retards etc, the blacks commenting here are just responding to the head bashing dished to them by the whites. For God sake, all the black man is asking for is sharing in the countrys wealth not on the white mans wealth, how that is done is something else, but lets talk about it, we are living in a 20 by 25 stands after you have built a house u cant have a garden, nothing. The whites owns hectors n hectors of land, they have flower, vegetable gardens n orchards. And they want things to remain as they are.

      Jacqui - 2011-12-19 12:04

      You don't know the white man at all. Who would want to be afraid of the likes of you?.

      Azande - 2011-12-19 14:42

      @Mpho, I hear what you are saying and hope yo insinuation that Darkie's comment is based on his analysis of "whites’ comments" in here is factual. I personally believe that if you have a problem with anyone’s comment here, you need to comment on that person’s comment otherwise yo comment will taken as it’s based on the article itself.

  • Jan - 2011-12-19 06:49

    I wonder how this is going to play out. Is Malema's membership of the ANC, pending appeal, not suspended? The power struggle gets fiercer and fiercer. Waiting for the pot to boil over.

      Honest - 2011-12-20 19:54

      The result does not change the suspension or the pending appeal , from what I understand if he loses the appeal he will automatically lose the newly found position in Limpopo province as he cannot serve in any structure of the ANC while serving suspension so this is not an overturn of the hearing outcomes. His province is merely saying "we still want him' , the margin of 82 votes SHOULD still a worrying factor for those supporting him I suppose. That is how I understand it .

    "attempts to topple Zuma" - what is this supposed to mean. Did Malema ever said he want to topple Zuma. Is Mangaung not for the purpose of electing new leadership. If so, where does this talk of toppling Zuma come from. I am suprised that even our people are sucked into this rightwing conspiracy of wanting to maintain the status quo by demonising the leaders we love and glorifying the fools who push the rightwing's evil agenda of perpetual economic subjugation. I hope in the end you will realize that you are mere tools and fools.

You sing praise for Zuma and belittle Mbeki, now you belittle Zuma and praise Mbeki all with the motivation of keeping the power you THINK you have. You manipulate people around you for personal gains and nothing more. You say you will die for "white" people but the same breath you chant "KILL THE BOER"...you attack "White" people weekly so in short, you a bald-headed over weight snake of the WORST kind!

      You better kill yourself chief,because you will feel Mathales presence for five years.You must realise that,this is Limpopo is not the mushrooms and popcorns,is where Julius is belong.Do you think he must drive what?just is because is the black person,so you undermine him.You sound like I dont know.Stop jealous,you stress yourself.Go and still maybe you will drive than him.

  • Roy - 2011-12-19 07:42

    Now the "crap" has hit the fan/Malema and corruption in Limpopo is going to get worse. Zuma/ANC should take immediate steps to have Mathale's victory challenged because if it is not Malema is going to cause BIG headaches for the ANC.

  • Vegi - 2011-12-19 07:43

    I have heard many times that Cassel Mathale is a criminal, but no one has mentioned even a single crime that he committed. May be it is a case of guilt by association. Indeed the stupidity of the ordinary rightwinger defies logic.

      Linda - 2011-12-19 08:14

      Clearly anyone who doesnt agree with you is a rightwinger - which defies logic - but all your previous comments have also shown that you wouldnt know logic if you tripped over it in the passageway. You are so blinded by hatred and are clearly are a very unhappy person - which makes rightwingers very happy.

    There is no different between ANC and COPE's internal fights. It is becoming a hooligan party and soon it might be on its knees. Getting Mathale back also means Limpopo will never ever complete those projects. A long way from Apartheid to hell.

      ... and so the rot in Limpopo will continue...

  • psebetlela - 2011-12-19 09:54

    As nature would have intended. Soldier on Malema.

  • Gail - 2011-12-19 10:45

    I'm a bit confused as to where Limpopo is to tell the truth. My only comment on this win is that it is a pretty slim win being less than a 100 votes so Mathale had best not feel TOO secure.

    "...he was “clean” and ready to lead his province towards “economic freedom”". Are these African words for now we can work on the tenders again?

  • Geronimo - 2011-12-19 11:27

    Can someone please tell me what "economic freedom" is?

      Mpho Ndlovu - 2011-12-19 18:06

      Is when someone take back what has been stolen from him.

    @Queenie - one can clearly see you are as half witted as that dimwit Juju is! Marry him! But for God sake, dont have children! Imagine what wits they would be! Im thinking retards in the most hardcore case ever!

  • Pieter - 2011-12-19 13:56

    They needed an experienced person in the tender division and mr. Malema was available

  • Dudley - 2011-12-19 14:11

    Thank heavens Enema Malema is staying in politics ... I was despairing that he would end up farming and that would have robbed me of one day seeing him doing a Zulu dance at Zuma's next wedding : I have a yearning to see whose tits gravitate more towards their politician boops. My politician tip to Enema Malema is : for God sake ditch those purple, suits they make you look particularly humuguous !

  • Mark - 2011-12-19 14:50

    The members of the ANC are just a bunch of hooligans, and the fact that no-one in the NEC has the balls to stand up against such ill-discipline shows that the spirit of Madiba has been extinguished by greed, dishonesty, and corruption! Viva Zimbabwe viva!

      Moduto - 2011-12-19 17:30

      @ Mark, it was nice and easy when the bunch of white thiefs from the NP and ur forefathers where looting evering from SA without any fear, they went as far as just taking land violantly from a black man, give him/her an inferior education.... then today you complain....? Sorry, but i blame it all on the type of education that was given to all of this hooligans you are reffering to. PS, they are ur bosses now and they are going to loot your money even further unless u relocate to Australia...

  • Siotine - 2011-12-19 15:06

    "His name is cleared by the election results"...bunch of idiots. You all a bunch of thieving hypocrites. You think that because the majority has voted for him, he has been cleared of all wrong doing before this. How dumb must you be. And its the poor sad F**ks that are going to lose out again. But hey I can tune! you cannot you voted for these Biggots! and whats the bet you will still keep voting for these biggots till you die with an empty stomach. I am well fed...:)

  • Moloto Mabonchi - 2011-12-19 17:54

    I'm just nothing to stop this delusion. I wonder which poor Mathele's administration represents when dey lavish themselves with tenders until dey even exhaust de overdraft fecility. Which poor when govt officials have no petrol to carry out their duties and service providers go unpaid? There is no politics here. Its just greed and arrogance. U should meet our politicians and hear their thinking. U will know the worst is still to come. They think politics is about cunning and trickery. Nowhere do they mention honesty and loyalty. But life remains de same cycle it has always been for those who are stupid: suffering, learning, correction, stability, destruction and suffering again.

  • Koekies - 2011-12-20 21:55

    How many departments in this "economical free" province is under administration?

  • Ian - 2011-12-21 17:31

    The ANC use english words but seem to give them their own meaning when it comes to Malema. To suspend - to debar for a time (supposedly for 5 years they said) from a function or privilege; to put a stop to ... What's Malema doing now on the Limpopo ANC Executive if he had been debarred. The whole case has been a farse!
