Malema apologises to ANC leaders

2012-03-11 22:52

Johannesburg - Suspended ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema apologised to leaders of the ANC on the SABC Asikhulume talk show on Sunday night.

"I want to also apologise to the leadership of the African National Congress for anything that they think I have done wrong," he told presenter Vuyo Mvoko.

Malema was expelled from the ANC in February for bringing the party into disrepute and sowing division in its ranks.

Malema was initially suspended for five years, but appealed.

One of the charges against him was dismissed and he was granted leave to present evidence in mitigation of sentence on the other two charges. After doing so, the ANC announced that the sentence had been upped to one of expulsion.

"I did not do it deliberately. I was making a contribution.

"I thought it was strengthening the movement as required by the constitution of the ANC Youth League to support the movement," he said on the hour long discussion.

    Lol! Look at him kissing *** now that he can see his tender backhanders slipping from his grasp. Newsflash: We do not believe you are sorry Fatso. A leopard does not lose its spots.

      He's also a fat cat, not a fat penguin.

      REMEMBER... Remember how postings on this website stated that they "do not believe that Malema will really be suspended from the ANC!" Here it comes, he will be forgiven. All was orchestrated to billsh*t the masses. Malema is die racist, hate-spewing true voice of the ANC!

      Mike - 2012-03-12 07:43

      my dog is much better than this fat ar??hole.

      David - 2012-03-12 08:01

      What happened to those words "I will NEVER apologized" , I have done nothing wrong. Is it your culture Malema to lie when things don't go your way.

      Ina - 2012-03-12 08:05

      And only yesterday he said he will not ask anyone's permission to speak at ANCYL or any other ANC gathering. Sounds like insubordination to me or at the least defiance, and now he is apologising? for 'whatever he MAY have done wrong'? Sounds like a very half-hearted apology to me, as if he didn't think he did anything wrong, and his transgressions are really only in the minds of his accusers!

      Nigel - 2012-03-12 09:31

      he said that he would die fighting for the ANC, lets see if he will last 10 min, this mamparra will do anything to save his lying skin, wait & see how pathetic he will be once he has lost his card.

      Chrono - 2012-03-12 10:36

      @Ramona, precisely. This is no apology. He did not ackonwledge any wrong-doing. He feels sorry for the fact that the ANC leadership thinks he did something wrong. (The man lacks the ability to reflect, or if he can, he still cannot see the light. A potential Idi Amin or Robert Mugabe).

      J-Man - 2012-03-12 10:37

      He did not apologise for his actions at all...read what he said... : "I want to also apologise to the leadership of the African National Congress for anything *that they think I have done wrong*,"...

      Andre - 2012-03-12 10:42

      I agree. Apology without remorse is not an apology at all!

      danielle.toerien - 2012-03-12 11:30

      Follow this cake (Malema) on Twitter...this guy is such a FAKE. His reply to Tshediso87 statement reading: I dont think you should've apologized. Julius_S_Malema RT: But I didn't. I only said what they wanted to hear! WAKE UP Julius followers, he's also only telling you what you want to hear!

      Polotiek - 2012-03-12 12:48

      Whether you like him or not, he will become your President one day. Malema is a great politician the country has ever produced. His Charisma guarantees his unconditional come back in December. Please bear in mind that his fate was only decided by a few people (NDC and NDCA) and Mangaung will turn things around miraculously. I posit that the majority of people who post comments on this website were never affected by the apartheid system, and these comments are not a true reflection of the country's population. Many a times these comments are biased. Blacks neither have access nor time to use internet during working hours, still oppressed. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE MALEMA, IT'S NOT OVER YET. I wish the leadership of the ANC could read this article to see how happy the opposition is when Economic Freedom Fighters are surpressed. May be they can re-evaluate their actions. Apology or no apology Malema is Going nowhere. We like him.

      Greg - 2012-03-13 08:08

      @Polotiek - Sorry, are you saying that black people are being oppressed because their employers don't allow them time to sit on the internet during working hours? I'm sure that will benefit the country tremendously, not to mention stop this ludicrous oppression of black employees!!! ...Sounds just like a Malema argument, it's no wonder you support him so!!

  • bernpm - 2012-03-11 23:06

    A New Comedy (ANC) for every day....... After months of dilly dally, meetings with high placed government people, appeals and now -finally- the guys have come to "heel" like puppies.. Let's see what the big bosses do so that they can start governing after this extended Christmas holiday.

      Phillie - 2012-03-12 00:07

      Malenema is very sly/devious (not clever)Boasting and taking the anc on in front of his "supporters" and the public TV then saying sorry on a show that 99% of the original audience/"supporters"will not have seen!

  • Jean-Marc - 2012-03-11 23:10

      that apology is not complete...especially after the interview was watched by millions. full statement actually shows he is not apologising as he regrets nothing

      Too funny - He doesn't know what he actually did wrong, but sorry anyways.

      seanpresherhughes_1 - 2012-03-12 01:53

      Malema had a clear agenda, I for one don't fall for his snot and tears! Haven't you got some legos to play with Malema ? The public is sick and tired of your sick ugly face in the media pleading for pardon whilst you were clearly on a Rambo mission of clear destruction of this countrie's ruling party and all oi its inhabitants! Too little - too late, now f...Co off! And get the message once and for all. You are cunning and deceiving - world's largest con-artist ever known!

      susan.greyling - 2012-03-12 11:11

      Naza, having tutored at a university I can assure you, they accept semi-literates. Especially Unisa. The level of education has dropped very far in this country. They push people who have failed through first year to make up numbers and don't mark on language anymore. Because apparently going to an English university when it's not your first language makes you exempt from having to spell properly and follow basic grammar rules.

    This does nt sound like apology,if if if they think that, i dont buy this,my man if jy verskone te vra please first go internally and apologise to leaders and other political party after ask sabc for 30minutes to apologise to the nation surely we will forgive on condition that you stay away from politics for 5yrs and accept the verdict,maybe after 4years come for mercy to be given membership card

      Well said Eric ...

      francois.delange - 2012-03-12 07:29

      Eric, Firstly, the absence of a real father in his life, is so obvious. I believe it is one of the biggest shortcomings in our society today. Fathers that are precent in their childrens lifes makes a huge contribution to the mold and shaping of their lives, especially boys. Secondly, I say to you I am sorry. Your first reaction will be Sorry for what? To make an apology sincere, admit to what you have done wrong, not to what others think you might have done wrong. He should not only apologise to ANC leaders, he must apologise to the whole of SA, his comments and actions have hurt us all.

      Nigel - 2012-03-12 09:33

      its another publicity stunt, another popularist statement to save his skin, what he is trying to do here is to appear like the victim, this so called apology was not for the ANC but to try & get sympathy from the poor, the same people that he has stolen from.

      @Alex, @Paula. Have you ever compared yourself to Malema? How many People know you in your community, let alone in your workplace? Do you have Charisma? Then you're the real Idiot, not Malema. Colour will never make you smart. Malema is your Future President. Your own sons and daughters will compete to become his bodyguards and maids when the time is ripe.

      Polotiek - 2012-03-12 15:30

      DA has no future in South African Politics. Blacks will continue to join in large numbers and take all the leadership positions until DA sink completely. This has started, Lindiwe Mazibuko will constest for the Presidential position soon and that will mark the genesis of the end of DA. They are there to serve the interests of the ANC, not DA. No DA post 2020.

      Agree John. Its not asif its a major effort.

      Gollum - 2012-03-12 05:33

      @ John & Frank. If you're going to complain about spelling then the least you can do is ensure yours is correct. I find it amusing you complain about a couple typos in an entire article while you guys both make multiple errors in one sentence. John, you need a couple capital letters and a question mark. Frank, asif are two separate words and "its" (in your case) is a contraction of "it" and "is" which requires an apostrophe, as in "it's".

  • Eric Mdudus Shaku - 2012-03-11 23:23

    Guys what would you do if malema was your child?

      Francois - 2012-03-11 23:35

      Eric, good question. Firstly one need to answer this one first: What would you have done if Malema was my child? Firstly, I think you ask the question from a respobsibility point of view or a caring one - Malema could not have been my child, just simply out of biology.That said, I would have supported him in his drive to get books to his co - pupils in school which he did, but I would not have let the ANC get him into the ANC as that probably was the only way they could silence him then (Why was it so difficult to distribute books and still is?) I would have taught him to study hard and not use the limelight and the gun that the ANC illegally gave him to operate as heroworship or condoning by the ANC, but as a blatant robbing of his future. I would have taught him that stealing from anybody is wrong and that one must make a stand for the poor as the rich can afford attorneys to make a stand for them. I would have taught him to respect everyone in society, disregarding the pigmentation of his epidermus or his age. I would have taught him that history has normally more than one side and one must take into account the other side. Lastly I would have taught him to take his punishment like a man. Now is a good time for the last lesson.

Translation: I am sorry you thought I did something wrong, but I didn't, morons. Keep it coming jujuzela, destroy the ANC from within. I'm loving it!

  • Mzwandile - 2012-03-11 23:41

    Apology accepted Comrade Juluis. Your are part of the ANC family and as a family we cannot disown one of ours as all families do. That was a sign of maturity.

      tchica3 - 2012-03-11 23:47

      Mzwandile!!! have you also been brained washed?? Please man. The guy is a nut case. ANC must move on.

      Mzwandile - 2012-03-12 00:14

      @tchica3 I actually don't think so, he is an asset to the ANC and this country. However he has to learn many things in life. We all make mistakes even worse mistakes than Juluis did and yet we expect to be forgiven. Life goes on and we can't be looking back to the past - and this has been a message in this forum day in day out. The worse mistake more than what Malema (he never killed anyone) did I have ever experience is for those who deliberately and systematically created apartheid which has seen my lifes being displaced many people killed and others disappeared, and yet we have forgiven those who created and supported that system. Malema is a saint compared to those architects and supporters of that system. But lets forget and forgive and move on - why can't you????

      seanpresherhughes_1 - 2012-03-12 02:12

      To me the word apology means "admission of guilt"¡ Period!

      John - 2012-03-12 03:58

      Mzwandile, there are many things that he has to learn yet. However what he has learned so far he has PHD degrees in: Stealing, In sighting violence and crawling while begging for forgiveness. You guys also call him a "young lion"... "cowering dog" is a far better description I would say.

      Roger - 2012-03-12 10:04

      Mzwandile; how can you NOT see the chaos, corruption, racial hatred, abuse of power, violations of common sense, and absolute hypocrisy that JM has already created or is in the process of developing? Please open your eyes and use your mind! I commented in a previous post about of the catastrophes which occur when blind obedience is achieved by a leader through deceiving the masses by sensationalizing the plight of the under privileged or moral stances of their specific religion and moving the blame and hatred onto another group or race to help support their own cause . Germany and the Jews; the Hutus and Tutsis; the Serbs, Croats and Muslims; the Spanish inquisition (and other assorted religious crusades) are only a few examples. Sorry to bust your bubble; but broaden your views, look closely at the real issues at hand and be objective. JM is nothing but a dictator in the budding phase and if not stopped; he will destroy everything that so many people (Black, Colored, Indian and White) have worked so hard to achieve. He is not looking out for anyone’s well-being other than himself. The best response I’ve seen on JM was when he commented something along the lines that he should be treated by the South African public as another “Mandela”: Evita read this and His/Her (however you view Evita) immediate response was perfect: “Great Idea, let’s start with 27 years in prison”.

      Jacqui - 2012-03-12 10:42

      Mzwandile, no it wasn't a sign of maturity, but one of doulbe talk. Malema wants his place in the sunshine again and that is all there is to it.

    Petrusburg se mesne sukkel vir jare met dienslewering. Die ANC kan nie "produce" nie en die bande het al `n geruime tyd daar gebrand in opstande teen die onvermoë om dienste daar te kan lewer. Hierdie dik Malema mannetjie weet presies waar om te krap waar daar baie mense is wat so ongelukkig is, dat hulle selfs agter hom en sy uiters gladde bek aanhardloop. Kyk maar in die toekoms. Dis waar hy gaan toeslaan. In daardie swart gemeenskappe waar die mense hiper gatvol is vir die ANC en hulle leuns. Daar is genoeg geld in daardie munisipaliteit wat so uitmekaar uit val maar tenderbedrog en diefstal veroorsaak dat die geld nie op die plekke uitkom waar dit die nodigste is nie. Kyk met wat se kar ry die Malema. Plaas hy die luukshede van ontslae raak en dit ook versprei na die mense wat hy so loop en lieg en bedrieg. Wanneer gaan daar `n uitslag wees vanaf die HAWKS en SARS in ondersoek onder andere na sy kits rykdom??????

      John - 2012-03-12 04:08

      Sorry Johan, I know it is rude to answer your comment in English but to do so in Afrikaans I would insult your language. "Wanneer gaan daar `n uitslag wees vanaf die HAWKS en SARS in ondersoek onder andere na sy kits rykdom??????" I sit over here and ponder that self same question, I thought that by now this crack "Hawks" unit and the SARS would have had him behind bars already. Or is that just wishful thinking?

  • Leon - 2012-03-12 00:26

    That is not even an apology - he is sorry for what they think he did wrong - i.e. he is either to stupid to know what he did wrong or he is smart enough to not admit it. Can we please get rid of this piece of garbage from public life so we can start trying to repair the damage he has done to nation building?

      Mzwandile - 2012-03-12 00:45

      "get rid of this piece of garbage from public life" sounds like the langauge of the security branch, whatever you mean Leon I am afraid some of the past lunatics will respond in the manner that they use to respond in the past= TO KILL

      Leon - 2012-03-12 01:01

      First - the security branch would not use such obvious language in discussing the removal of any person from existence. Second - how stupid are you? removing someone from public life does not mean killing them. Also why kill him? That would do more harm than good - creating a matyr, etc - no, public disgrace and humiliation is the way to go

      John - 2012-03-12 04:13

      Masterfully put Leon. Crap who wants an afterbirth as a martyr? Public humiliation and a flogging is the way to go.

      Andrew Makhiwesizwe Motha - 2012-03-12 05:28

      Leon its clear that you are angry and that you hate the young man. Your language does not suggest any intention of building the nation that you claim to be waiting to pursue. You have degenerated to an even lower position by posting a public note calling another man a piece of garbage. Secondly, while some of us agree that he may have said things that are not popular and that are harmful, we also believe that they don't warrant expulsion. So, part of nation building is to accept apologies. That is what the nation did in TRC. Imagine what could have happened if we did not! So there is no sin in rendering an apology. Unless of course its an issue of get rid of him so that we don't discuss the land issue, the nationalization issue and internally in the party, the succession debate.

Don't throw stones in glass houses! Malema meant nothing to his followers in the past and is and all ways will be a balloon full of air with pockets bulging with your and all the poor homeless people he supoosedly represents' money!

      pws69 - 2012-03-12 06:49

      @ Andrew, You cannot build a nation with divisive, racist scum like Malema. He is a black Terreblanche or Verwoerd.

      andrew.motha - 2012-03-12 09:39

      @Sean I am an ordinary citizen renting a flat in Sunnyside. I am working towards my PhD in energy and climate change. I have a very unstable job, having not taken home a salary in 3 months, yet that does not mean that my eyes are closed to a political game at play in this Malema case. @Leon, you call Julius, the next Tereblanche, yet I am almost certain you don't even have grounds for such an accusation. Did you even watch the entire interview from which this story is based or you are just commenting because he is quouted as saying he apologises? It would make sense if you were to put your points within the context of the entire interview. You have not responded to the fact that you are insulting him in the name of building the nation. Kanti what was the TRC for? In the spirit of reconciliation we closed our eyes to the facts including the atrocities that most whites in this country comitted against the majority black and yet today each time we raise the issue of economic emancipation we are told that we are insighting violence! The truth is if we do not deal with these issues within policy frameworks, they will happen harpharzadly and then, you will see what juju is talking about unmitigated.

    Juju is cofused and intends confusing many people. on TV he once said true ANC leaders will emerge after Mangaung. To whom is he apologizing now? Wait for Mangaung broer and apologise thereafter. What kind of an apology is this. Young grany should be very disappointed with you. There can be no traces of respect tha can be found even if Juju can go for a DNA test.

    im just laughing cos at the end of the day guys this is politics so it part of it game and we dnt knw what will be happening at the back,let us kjust focus on our lives and forget about this malema issues it wont take us anywhere

  • Sally Lewitt - 2012-03-12 04:13

    JM is the ultimate manipulator and ANC will probably \fall\ for this apology! Please take note JM says \for anything that they think I have done wrong,\ He does NOT believe he has done anything wrong.. \r\nThis creaton is a danger to SA as he is a pathological liar as he has proved over and over.. Be warned! \r\nIf they kiss his ass and accept this so called apology, its a gut feel that he \knows to much\ and someone is running scared!!!

  • garth.bester2 - 2012-03-12 04:44

    I want to also apologise to the leadership of the African National Congress for anything that they think I have done wrong," for a start that says it all. You a nut case with no sense, sorry you missed the gravy train get to the back back of the line BOY.

  • Silvana - 2012-03-12 04:54

    ....for anything that they think I have done wrong," he told presenter He's saying sorry (OMG how I hate that word) and yet he doesn't admit he was wrong. I see one of two scenarios playing out here. JZ has struck a deal with him to get re-elected for a second term or he needs ANC protection against the tender investigation. Either way I don't think it's the end of Malema. As the saying goes, "It's only over when the fat lady (in this case fat boy) sings.

  • brionyl.french - 2012-03-12 05:02

    shame begging little doggy... I still say he is a liabillity!!! He is only apologising because he doesnt wanna be expelled. He doesnt actually think that what he has done is wrong

  • Eduard - 2012-03-12 05:24

    still in denial....this guy is dangerous. SA is better without him

  • Robin - 2012-03-12 05:24

    Julius is retard!

      Charles Mahlaba - 2012-03-12 06:40

      behind you always brother Julius

      Silvana - 2012-03-13 06:06

      @Charles. Damn right. You'll always be behind him. Do you honestly think he'll let you walk alongside of him? NEVER!

  • Andre Mouton - 2012-03-12 05:28

    Well its about time! But I'm afraid its too little and too late. I really hope the ANC leadership is not going to fall for this obvious last ditch effort to get back into the fold as the apology does not sound heartfelt to me at all.

  • Elize - 2012-03-12 05:40

    My problem with Julius Malema is that he believes he can shoot his mouth off, get the people all worked up into a histerical frenzy, then quickly apologize afterwards and then repeat the prossess over and over again. He teaches our youth to defy authority blatantly and where does this leave the future of our country? In serious trouble!! Please ANC, you claim to be good leaders and you are fair, do something about Julius because his disrespect causes peoples distrust your authority...

  • Sterling - 2012-03-12 05:45

    Malema is nothing without the ANC, he will be sleeping off the streets in a few months. This guy has no skill to sell or nothing to earn money with this is why many people in the ANC keep their mouths close. In the US and other western countries, the people in politic go back to their business but, in SA the people in the ANC have no where to go. Malema, Blade and all the others are nothing but parasites hanging on to the ANC.

  • Grant - 2012-03-12 05:46

    "...for anything that they think I have done wrong," Malema has not apologised. He has not admited to having said anything wrong

      seanpresherhughes_1 - 2012-03-12 07:12

      Any "Apology" means "Admission of guilt" - period ! I reitterate!

  • seandevil - 2012-03-12 05:48

    What a lot of B S

  • jmccaffs - 2012-03-12 06:06

    This guy is lower than a snakes balls.

  • Tony - 2012-03-12 06:10

    Note.. He didn't apologies for what he did, but rather for what the ANC "thought" ...he did wrong" . Fartbreath is as defiant as ever!

      Andile Magaba Magaba - 2012-03-12 06:35

      Spot on Tony. He still believes his not in the wrong. why bother to apologise then?

  • Lavida Koekemoer - 2012-03-12 06:15

    All dis negative comments makes me sick...

      seanpresherhughes_1 - 2012-03-12 07:15

      Then cancel your membership Lavida! No one is forcing you to be here.

  • Johan - 2012-03-12 06:21

    Mal Emma does not know when to keep his trap shut ! lol

  • Roy - 2012-03-12 06:21

    To prove that they have some backbone the ANC should nail this s.o.b to the wall and if they don't, Malema given a chance, is going to cause bigger problems. They should chuck him out so that he can be investigated by SARS,NPA and anyone who can throw him into jail for all his stealing.

  • Bongeka - 2012-03-12 06:33

    Crying crocodile tears.Some may buy his apologies but I'm not because he only realises now that without ANC he is nothing so he's trying his luck by showing remorse to the public.I'm not buying that,sorry baba.

      Polotiek - 2012-03-12 13:45

      Face palm plus a f**k off clap

  • glen.bradshaw - 2012-03-12 06:39

    "I want to also apologise to the leadership of the African National Congress for anything that they think I have done wrong," So all his wrong doings are in the ANC leaderships heads!! Some apology. Every-time this bigot strings a few words together we see his true intentions.

  • Andre Lombard - 2012-03-12 06:45

    Expelled/Suspended. Makes no difference. Juju is still mouthing off about everything. He is really testing the boundaries of freedom of expression. Still addressing gatherings of the ANCYL. Once again the ANC have proved that they do not have teeth.

  • Luzuko Tosh Plaatjie - 2012-03-12 06:53

    Its too late to apologise, “for whatever they think I have done wrong”. He doesn't mean it

      Wilma Crous - 2012-03-12 06:55

      Agree. He is not truly sorry at all. He knows he has to do, what he has to do, to get back in their good books.

  • dooskop - 2012-03-12 07:00

    Oh YOU RAT!! wake up and smell the sh.t How long are you going to play like a HERD BOY!!!!!!! go back to your pig stye!!!!!

  • seanpresherhughes_1 - 2012-03-12 07:03

    Let me give you an example of your ignorance Malema, it's say someone has an unfortunate motor-vehicle accident where a passengers dies, the the case would be investigated under "culpable homicide" if this driver intently drove into a tree to kill one or more people in the vehicle, however, with the case would be investigated as attempted murder or even murder, becauseit was done with intent! What you did Malema was done with intent/deliberate as you clearly admitted to! Hence your expulsion. It was a more serious case - get it!?

      seanpresherhughes_1 - 2012-03-12 07:06

      @Charles - Behind? You coward!
