Malema: Vote for ANC to keep Mandela alive

2011-04-07 10:45

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema invoked former president Nelson Mandela's name in a speech urging his supporters to vote for the ruling party in upcoming local government elections, The Star newspaper reported on Thursday.

"When you put a cross, there are two things you must see. The first line of the cross you must say 'happy birthday' Walter Sisulu; the second cross you must say 'get well Madiba', because you are doing it for the ANC," Malema said in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday.

"President Mandela is sick and you don't want to contribute to a worsening condition of Mandela by not voting ANC. President Mandela will never endure if the ANC is out of power," the youth leader said, according to a quote published in The Star.

Local government elections will take place on May 18, which is also the late Sisulu's birth date.

Mandela, 92, was discharged from hospital in February after being treated for a respiratory infection. He was later moved to his home in Houghton where he is under 24-hour supervision by a medical team.

He retired from politics in June 1999 and from public life in 2004.

His ex-wife, politician Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, complained in an interview last year published in the London Evening Standard that the ANC "kept him as a figurehead for the sake of appearance" and that Mandela was "wheeled out globally to collect the money".

Madikizela-Mandela denied ever doing the interview, but the UK paper stood by its story.

    OMG !!! This must be the only card he has left to play!!! Lol!!

      RationalistPabi - 2011-04-07 11:34

      personally i think he is bipolar and it is disgusting that the ANC is using him and not putting him on medication!!!

      Pierre - 2011-04-07 12:05

      @Maki,grow up.I see he has already fooled you too!!!How can you vote in that manner?What happened to voting for the party that delivers???Now you must vote to not let someone die???HEHEHEHHEHEHEHEH,

      Thelma - 2011-04-07 12:11

      It must be his cheapest, lowest, degrading stunt he has ever pulled.

      cracknose - 2011-04-07 12:18

      I guess they have taken his hostage and unless you vote for him...

      K@K Praat? - 2011-04-07 12:19

      @Maki... Thank you for your useless comment.I think you and Thepho must try to work together.Maby then you could achieve 1% for online communication.

      lean - 2011-04-07 12:24

      Next thing we going to here from this clown Malema:@ Vote for ANC we will heal you from HIV AIDS...@

      cmr.insurance - 2011-04-07 12:25

      To Maki if 66% of the nation listen to this rubbish they deserve to be abused it's time to wake up and realise the ANC does not represent the people like it did years ago. they only care for how much a few get while the rest suffer. unless you are one of the few who benefit and want the gravy train to continue.

      Almaki - 2011-04-07 12:34

      @ lean: Please don't give him any more ideas...

      mm - 2011-04-07 12:38

      @Maki. The question is, can 66% of the country actually be that deluded to believe such crap? Not only does the ANC give you a ticket to heaven, but it can heal you too? Do you realise how idiotic that sounds, and embarrassing. Madiba wanted freedom, not ANC dictatorship. I think it was seeing his beloved party becomming such a corrupt mess that got him sick in the first place.

      call a spade - 2011-04-07 12:56

      MAKI If 66% are right why are the country going backwards?

      Virginia - 2011-04-07 13:09

      Maki your are and idiot like Malema if you think what he is doing is right. People are out there suffering because of the ANC government its about time they realised that the people chosen the lead them are fakes, they have to find people within there areas who know what the people require and vote these into municipal office. This is exactly what Mrs Helen Zille is doing, shes not praying on the peoples ignorance.

      Francois - 2011-04-07 13:46

      Maki in 1936 80% of Germans were wrong. Malema needs the people to vote ANC so that he can get tender money so that he can pay for his visits to Mandela and buy some highly inflated medical equipment to keep Madiba alive.

      Jacques - 2011-04-07 14:05

      @Maki your thinking is flawed - If the majority is always right then we have to discount many if not most of our knowledge. e.g. was the majority (90+% easily) right when they said that Galileo was an idiot to say the world was round not flat. The sad reality is in most cases the majority is often uninformed/misinformed and therefore make bad judgement decisions - myself included.

      Baas-Julius - 2011-04-07 14:15

      Would really be funny if Mandela dies before the election, what are the brain dead supporters going to do then?

      lean - 2011-04-07 14:49

      Baas-Julius@ if Mandela dies before the election, the next slogan would be:@ Vote for ANC we will show you the death and resurrection of Mandela@

      Bobs - 2011-04-07 14:50

      @Maki : 66% of the country are stuck in that same circular reasoning. That is precisely why they are wrong.

      Snoopy88 - 2011-04-07 15:17

      I think its quite clever actually.. With one phrase he has linked this corrupt and inefficient government in the minds of the voters with the once proud and honourable ANC of Nelson Mandela - The ANC that many still believe in. I just pray that the people of South Africa can see through this cheap talk.

      Win14 - 2011-04-07 16:04

      Yes Kakpraat, you are so right. And the ANC primed him for that. Mandela must be seething if he sees how his name and message is exploited by nincompoops and political manipulators. I think that Madiba is still waiting for the ideal moment to make his last grandstand for the world and tell everybody that his purpose and vision was destroyed, or badly tainted, by people such as Zuma and Malema. Madiba could drop dead tomorrow because of his age, and I think he should now come out of his lair and tell the world how he feels about this Malema manure and all the corruption and mismanagement. If he doesn't do that, it will sit on his record forever that he created a monster and agreed with it, because he never spoke up against it. I thought this might wait till the next general election, but things are so over-sensitised now that we need a strong message RIGHT NOW ! Madiba, PLEASE, give us a message of hope and distance yourself from your (involuntary?) creation !!!

      Enough! - 2011-04-07 18:00

      No the ANC is loosing it's Mandela vision! Now it's just about greed and corruption and power hungry dictators! We will not be your typical African country and will vote for those who really care! It's DA all the way this year for the first time ever and I can't wait for 18 May!

      JuluisMalema - 2011-04-08 07:38

      Hardtail - 2011-04-08 08:19

      You guys miss the point, Mandela is senile, on his last legs, and has not been able to form a coherent opinion for years. I smell blood in the water. Once he dies, and it will be soon, for he is over 90, the rhetoric you have just seen will change to blaming the whites for his demise. just wait and see.

      JuluisMalema - 2011-04-08 11:56

      @Hardtail, Yes i agree with you. Nelson Mandela has got one foot in the grave and the other one on a banana peel, we al know what that means.

      wide awake - 2011-04-08 21:02

      lol - just when you think he can't say something more stupid! Well I guess it makes sense you can't expect anything more from a useless scrap racist cANCer government.

      What did you expect? These imbeciles dont even respect themselves. They are now so desperate to stave off the DA's onslaught that they are now grasping for any straws available to them. I think one should actually feel sorry for them. Maybe not.

      Bratt - 2011-04-08 10:03

      You are looking at this the wrong way. He is campaigning. If you think he is wrong, have your own campaign... 'Vote DA to shut Malema up...' or something like that.

      wide awake - 2011-04-08 21:11

      There is nothing left they are trying to feed off leaders who had some principals and integrity, this lot are completely useless they cannot even campaign off themselves, there is nothing good to campaign, how would you campaign useless corrupt racist cANCer except to refer to older leaders who had integrity etc. No surprise lol, the easter bunny will come visit if you are voting for the cANCer.

  • flyingsaucer - 2011-04-07 10:54

    Another dumbass attempt by an imbecile!!! If they resort to such desperate campaigning, their situation and fear is much worse than I hoped for... all good news for the country!

What view do you have of South Africa that would want you to be led by this cretin? Even if you were a black nationalist, and wanted whites out the country, this idiot wouldn't be your best bet!!!!!!

Ofcourse the ANC will give us all very good jobs and big houses and tv and fridge and bakkie and more money for nothing...good luck with that buddy, not getting my hopes up. Nothing malema has ever promised has come to light, stop believing his absurd lies. If he becomes president the country will be "finsh and klaar"

      @maki your last comment just proves you have no clue what democracy and freedom of speech is all about. The correct response would have been: I disagree with what you say but will defend your right to say it to the hilt. Once again you fail to comprehend the rights people have in a modern society. Once again you show total disregard for the constitution like your masters do on a daily basis. In short: you and your masters fail at everything this nation should be about.

And PS the rest of you, everyone is entitled to their opinion on here. You are no better than what you accuse others of if you start insulting the man for speaking his mind.

      Snoopy88 - 2011-04-07 15:32

      You laugh, with one sentence he has probably turned thousands back to voting ANC - because they are doing it for the ANC they still believe in, the ANC of Mandela. No one would want to be voting against their beloved Madiba now would they? I think a lot of people are going to get a sad wake up call in this country, simply because they refuse to try and understand how others think, what's important to them. Especially you bigots who think you're better than everyone else... constantly going on about how 'stupid and uneducated' the masses are.. grrr I really need to stay away from news 24 for a while!

      Bratt - 2011-04-08 10:12

      @Lizel - actually I dont think he is being sarcastic. I also think this is intelligent campaigning. The other parties have to counter this kind of campaigning with similarly clever campaigns. Ultimately its the votes that count, not how accurate or realistic your campaign is.

  • steve - 2011-04-07 10:56

      Now here is an INTELLIGENT comment! Great. Well said Stephen.

      Bad1hq - 2011-04-07 12:01

      "During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." — Nelson Mandela

      Maddy-CT - 2011-04-07 15:05

      Most of today's ANC polititians will not die for their country, but will let their country die for them. It is ironic that Mr Mandela's ideal of an 'equal opportunity' society is closer to the DA's core philosophy of 'equal opportunities for all' than it is to the current ANC's policies. I mean no disrespect to ANC supporters but Mr Mandelas' ANC was very different to what the ANC is today.

    Obviously the ANC is becoming extremely desperate now, because they know that their official opposition(DA) is growing in power and will most likely start to take over and leave them in the dirt where they belong.

      thabiso.marumo - 2011-04-07 11:36

      They have ran out of promises and are using all tactics.

  • Tantrum - 2011-04-07 11:12

    And the sheep will follow .... this comment, as with the JZ go to heaven comment will work ... the uneducated masses believe this crap and that is the scary part.

  • ?? - 2011-04-07 11:13

    Julius Malema with his mouth,should really apply for a job at the World Wrestling Entertainment corporation. I can just picture him and "the Rock" in a tag team

  • Smaal - 2011-04-07 11:14

    I wonder if Nelson Mandela would want anything to do with the ANC or the ANCYL today. Better he doesn’t know what his brothers and sisters are doing.

      Sybil Alexander - 2011-04-07 17:04

      Don't be fooled. He does. Sorry to say he initiated.

  • TJG - 2011-04-07 11:15

    Vote DA everyone! Grasping at straws I would say. A bit desperate. Would love to know what Madiba really thinks of how his replacements are running the country. Very sad after all he worked for and what he represented. The temptation for corruption is just too much to pass over. "Get off my studio, busstad"

  • V. Zela - 2011-04-07 11:17

    Keep it up Julius you gain more votes for the DA than any other person in SA

  • ji - 2011-04-07 11:17

    Mandela was a good leader and honest , but I think the reason he is so ill is the fact that he is sick of watching what the ANC and ANCYL have become because all the corruption , dishonesty and retarded statements from the ANCYL and zuma make me sick .

  • Armchair critic - 2011-04-07 11:20

    haha haha, I can't stop laughing! I think he mentioned this at a rally in New Brighton, warning the residents that they didn't want the Nelson Mandela Bay metro to fall into the hands of the DA. Because the DA gives people open toilets. ACTUALLY THE ANCYL OPENED THE TOILETS, when they ripped the enclosures off. Hey Juju, at least the DA gives the people more than a chicken. Go figure!

      daaivark - 2011-04-07 11:46

      Wrong city! The loo-fiasco was in CT.

      zumalema - 2011-04-07 11:50

      At least the DA gives toilets. Anything from the ANC yet.... anything ... anywhere?

      K_za - 2011-04-08 08:58

      @daaivark: why do you always miss the point?

  • justjobs - 2011-04-07 11:20

    BlackSAfrican: When the ANC is not deliverying basic services they promised in their manifesto-forcing people to strike, blocking streets with burning tyres, Mandela is healthy, BUT when these toyi-toyi people have to excercise their democratic right and vote the USELESS ANC out of the municipal offices, now Mandela's health will deteriorate? What is Mandela saying with regard to the ANC's comrades when he sees the news every day. Every time they are on TV is "the goverment will do ..." nothing like "the goverment has done ..." The ANC has run out of ideas to fool people and they are now using Oliver TAmbo, Walter Sisulu and Mandela to make people feel guilty for not voting for them. These people are our PAST and now we need to build the FUTURE. AWAY WITH THE ANC.

      wide awake - 2011-04-08 21:36

      Well said justjobs. This is exactly whats going on, all ridiculous smoke screens, and the racist comments by the ANC, simply a ploy to cover up what they have been stealing and abusing. Probably the reason Nelson Mandela is sick, can't feel good watching this circus.

  • Pikkewyn - 2011-04-07 11:20

    Disgusting tactics. Shame on you Malema - U r an @hole

      cathy eksteen - 2011-04-07 11:30

      But hey our President tells people they will go too hell if they don't vote ANC.. Great Role Models we have in Sa.. tsk tsk tsk.

      Barry - 2011-04-07 13:43

      Pikkewyn I don't think He even has that

  • sganja - 2011-04-07 11:22

    Malema Is right,DA wont win Mandela bay,and people heared the call.

      Geewiz - 2011-04-07 11:34

      O s#@t another std 5 witch failed woodwork, nice one sganjapie

      Raymond - 2011-04-07 11:43

      @sganja....do you not want a fair future for your children? the anc now enriches themselves and both black and white suffer.... it will not change in the future if the anc stays in power.... even if you vote for peps stores its still better than keeping the corrupt anc in power.vote for anyone else but the anc, do it for your childrens future.

      daaivark - 2011-04-07 11:47

      Go smoke some more of yourself, mate. Who knows, wisdom may just glimmer in the distance one day.

  • bill - 2011-04-07 11:22

    zuma and his love-child malema are too stupid to run a spaza , let alone hold public office.Educated blacks need to do a rethink on the ANC or prove apartheid leaders correct in their assertions that they are incapable of governing.

      zumalema - 2011-04-07 11:43

      the educated people are around 20% of the population - why would the ANC worry about them. As long as they can keep 80% uneducated, they don't have a problem

      philani.goba - 2011-04-07 12:52

      zumalema..maybe they have 80% of your mind fooled, but those uneducated people are the onces not recieving services and and burning sh*t all over..trust me ANC is worried..otherwise you wouldn't have these cheap comments..

      zumalema - 2011-04-07 12:59

      I wish you were correct Philani but they have resorted to this knid of tactic from '94 onward. At first it was an all out onslaught on the IFP. That stopped when the ANC took KZN. Now its the DA's turn. Tha ANC may be worried, but they have no reason to be. They may lose a percent or so but if there are substantial losses - I will be very shocked.

      zumalema - 2011-04-07 13:00

      I meant kind, not knid - what thwe hell is a knid?

  • Stryder23 - 2011-04-07 11:23

    So... if I have this correct... Voting for ANC will get me into Heaven, as well as prevent death..... Is the Grim Reaper an ANC member?

      green_goblin - 2011-04-07 13:38

      No but the grim raper is..

      Paul - 2011-04-07 17:36

      You got to die FIRST before getting into heaven. So the ANC is correct; kill and destroy everything first to get your ticket into heaven and thanks to your vote Mandela will live on the "Other side" safe and secure from these morons. Add JUJU a MORON is not the opposite of a LESS OFF just so you know ok.

      wide awake - 2011-04-08 21:46

      This South Africa is a great place, you can get into heaven and prevent someone from dying simply by voting for the cANCer. They also have the cure for AIDS, simply take a shower, wow that's brilliant, now can they step aside and let someone fix all the fuc***ps they have made.

  • Ekweeti - 2011-04-07 11:23

    This statement is a disgrace not only to JM but to anyone associated with the ANC and begs one to ask the question: IQ or upbringing? I would rather think that old pres Mandela, God bless, would rather die if the people who are profiteering of the poor and pillaging the hard work of the wealthy, in order to ensure their own wellbeing, had to stay in power until the second coming of any higher power...

  • Madelane - 2011-04-07 11:24

    Absolutely no shame or morals whatsoever.....

  • KaiinSA - 2011-04-07 11:25

    I wonder if the Mandela Foundation will sue him for the improper use of the Mandela name. Now that would be funny.

      daaivark - 2011-04-07 11:48

      Great idea! Trademark infringement!

      Taurusaurus - 2011-04-07 11:48

      Agreed!! That twit needs a good court case to teach him that there are some lines he should never cross; draggin Nelson Mandela's name through the mud like this is 100 levels below tolerable! Mandela is a world icon, an inspiration to all, and a true scholar and gentleman; Zuma and Malema could never hope to even come 1% close to that.

  • craftcrazy@24.com - 2011-04-07 11:25

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel by using peoples emotions and love for Madiba to scrape together some votes. Just shows how useless the ANC and its youth league really are. A vote for heaven and now a vote to keep Madiba alive? I mean really, what an idiot you are proving yourself to be Malema!

  • jdeeathome - 2011-04-07 11:26

    gee malema can talk through his ass

      zumalema - 2011-04-07 11:44

      I like this comment - no emotion, just the simple truth.

  • willieman - 2011-04-07 11:26

      Vote ANC and KFC will half their prices

      Martin du Plessis - 2011-04-07 12:02

      Vote ANC or else the HUNS will invade. or maybe "The beer will dry up"

      carinx - 2011-04-07 12:38

      or vote ANC to prevent aids whahahaa if a shower can do it, so could a vote is suppose

    Mmm. Clever. Instilling a sense of guilt in the Slave for not doing the Master's bidding... Very clever. It achieves a willing surrender from the Slave and relieves the Master from having to resort to physical oppression.

  • Scout - 2011-04-07 11:29

    I have the utmost respect for Nelson Mandela - but that does not mean that I will vote for ANC - I consider Nelson Mandela an individual and do not relate him to any political party. Zuma / Malema may be "presidents of the ANC" in their own rights, but they will never come close to the respect that people have for Mandela. Zuma / Malema = ANC not = Mandela

  • Sgtsa - 2011-04-07 11:31

    What vote to keep Mandela alive, just so the rest of South Africa can get raped and murder that makes sense. If people believe that then they should not be allowed to vote. Calling all reporters STOP reporting on this dimwit, Julius Malema should not have a voice. This is the first time in 17 years things are looking like they are moving away from ANC run country and this chop says RUBBISH like that. He needs to wake up and get a slap. Lol. People of South Africa please listen to your heart and start to use your vote the right way, Vote for a party that is not “infested with corruption and greed"( ANC) ( Quote by Zwelinzima Vavi ) and vote for a party that has a good track record (DA). Peace to you all. ;> SGTSA
