Malema family 'prays against evil spirits'

2012-02-08 09:06

Johannesburg - Embattled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema's family members held a prayer meeting to cleanse them of evil spirits after his appeal against his suspension failed, according to a report on Wednesday.

Three priests, including pastor Jacqueline Selolo of the Seshego Baptist Church in his Limpopo hometown, led the prayer session at Malema's grandmother's house on Tuesday, reported The Star.

The priests "cast out all demonic and the devil's spirits" that had been directed at the family. Selolo told hundreds of Malema supporters he had been appointed by God.

"If God has appointed you, that is final, no matter what people say."

At the weekend, the ANC's disciplinary committee of appeals announced it had dismissed appeals by Malema, his spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, and four other ANCYL officials to overturn their suspensions.

They were found guilty in November 2011 of bringing the ANC into disrepute and of sowing division in the party.

However, the case had been referred back to the national disciplinary committee to allow them to argue in mitigation of their sentences.

Sunday newspapers contained pictures of some Seshego residents burning T-shirts bearing pictures of Malema's face to celebrate his failed suspension bid.

    i wonder if the prayer got rid of malema??? the only evil there!!!

      Chris - 2012-02-08 09:28

      Pray on this side and steal on that side. How pathetic. God don't appoint skelms.

      mariuskowie - 2012-02-08 09:39

      For Malema it would be suicide to get rid of the evil spirit.

      Marion - 2012-02-08 09:40

      While reading this I also wondered if they realised that Julius was the only one doing evil in their house... The devil made me do it syndrome...

      John - 2012-02-08 09:42

      Justin, you are right ...The priests "cast out all demonic and the devil's spirits". I think in the end prayer Juju found himself mysteriously trapped in the toilet outside of the house.... A sudden thunder and Juju hears in the toilet the words of Jacqueline Selolo "If God has appointed you, that is final, no matter what people say." Juju...remember this from me. "MY OWN WORST ENEMY IS ME"

      Kacee - 2012-02-08 09:48

      Amazing how they mock God when its convenient, but when they need to gather support they use God in every way to get peoples support... Absolutely sick!!!!

      Willie - 2012-02-08 09:48

      What evil spirit,when the guy was insulting women they never bothered,pull the other one with your puke

      Nick - 2012-02-08 09:53

      Funny how that stupid needs to get not one, not two, but 3 freeking Priests to get rid of Evil Spirits, when GOD himself appointed him in the first place, what? did GOD pull into Limpopo or where-ever and dip his hand into a lucky packet and pull Malema's Name out? then just buggers off again till the next stupid needs to get appointed? Clearly GOD didn't have much to do with Malema's Appointment else he wouldn't have evil spirits to contend with in the first place hahaha Chop!! and besides who needs to do Tender Fraud When GOD himself is guiding your destiny...? hmm?? and i think just for the record, Malema, its not called "Eee-Voool Spee-rittzz", it's called Karma!!! Reep what you sow... Sorry for you, and dont think you the only fallen angel now, trust, all your other crooked cronies and gonna be joining you soon... Welcome the New World! an AGE of Truth, Light, Love, Peace and Ethics!! But dont worry Malema, i dont need to hate you, I have already forgiven you... Now come right!!!

      Justin - 2012-02-08 09:53

      he is the weakest link!! goodbye!!!!!

      Sean - 2012-02-08 09:53

      I thought Malema was satan ?

      Johnny - 2012-02-08 10:33

      These evil spirits are called "bribes", and the all reside in a certain trust fund !!

      Peter - 2012-02-08 10:44

      Flowingriver: the 'K' word was given to the black people when the white people colonized this country. The 'K' word, means non-believer. Hence, black people didn't have Christianity as a religion. So technically, you owe us for your life and well-being, because judging what the ANC have achieved, religion wouldnt have even dawned on them.

      Gustav - 2012-02-08 11:15

      flowingrivers... So you justify this ridiculous article by blaming the boere or am i missing something? We never thought we were gods... YOU probably labelled us as gods... remember we brought lots of cool stuff to SA. cars, lights, trains, planes, pc's, anyways this is not important.

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-02-08 13:09

      ah gustav, did you bring the computer to south africa? or the plane? if not directly you are referring to be part of the human race that brought those things here, then equally you should take judgement and blame for what "our" forefathers did to the africans, think before you blab that "we gave you life speech" because you give mr Flowingriver the opportunity to make you look like an ignorant fool You are not better than any race and that goes for everyone. You want change start with yourself, you don't then GTFO!

      MagdaKus - 2012-02-08 13:10

      Which "god" are they praying to? Taking into account previous "theo-non-logical statements made by the party in the past?

      NrGx - 2012-02-08 13:11

      whoever these priests are, and whatever church they belong to..... 2 Corinthians 11:14 - And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

      Butter - 2012-02-08 14:18

      Malema is the tokolosh!!

      Tgif - 2012-02-08 15:23

      Till the coming of Jesus you bunch of Freaking idiots.Praying for Malema is like screwi!@ for virginity . Evil spirits and anc ancestors are one and the same . Drag yourself into the modern world you semi evolutionary specimens.

      Helmut - 2012-02-08 15:24

      What a pathetic church,wants to make the devil a saint.Juju you sold your self to the delvil, now its pay up time.Happy Times.

      Gustav - 2012-02-09 15:05

  • stoute.babuseng - 2012-02-08 09:09

    lol ridiculous

      Willie - 2012-02-08 09:49

      Arrest the priest

      StarStruck - 2012-02-08 10:40

      He is the embodiment of what the ANC stood for during the apartheid era. Evil ANC against evil apartheid. The only difference now is that the ANC is still around whereas apartheid is not.

      Fiona - 2012-02-08 14:37

      Actually - it was his grandmother who called the prayer meeting - and it was a priestess, not a priest.....

  • Johan - 2012-02-08 09:11

    All the gods put together won't be enough to cure Malema.

  • Ian - 2012-02-08 09:12

    the evil spirits that have pulled fatkids fat ugly snout out of the gravy,no more tenders for you ma gogo

  • Silver - 2012-02-08 09:14

    "If God has appointed you, that is final, no matter what people say." You know, Lucifer is also a god.

      procold2 - 2012-02-08 09:22

      hopefully not only the t shirts will burn

      Marion - 2012-02-08 09:41

      Lucifer is only a god if people treat him like one.

      Joseph - 2012-02-08 12:23

      their ancestor gods have appointed him cause only they can be that pethetic.

      Fiona - 2012-02-08 14:42

      No he isn't. Lucifer is an angel, either fallen or carrying the technical role of Adversary (in the sense of the questioner and tester of untested spiritual positions - see Job).

      Saamprater - 2012-02-10 06:45

      Nope, a fallen angel. Remember he was the most beautiful of them all and he was in charge of making the music and still uses it, but not for good. Who also sings racist songs? Let me go it's time for my morning shower...........

      Merven - 2012-02-10 09:11

      Gods, angels, devils, all the same, fantasy characters from ancient religions and nice escape goat for religious people to justify their faults and crimes.

  • jaz82 - 2012-02-08 09:18

    Maybe they should try an exorcism

      Ian - 2012-02-08 09:54

      omg, terrible thought, jujus head turning 360 degress, should be quite a sight

      Juan - 2012-02-08 09:54

      Maybe they should try a 38 special

      John - 2012-02-08 11:11

      Jaz, they should perform an exorcism on Selolo

      John - 2012-02-08 11:13

      It's all the dead farmers that are haunting the swine.

      Merven - 2012-02-10 09:13

      In the Dark Ages they purified a soul by fire, maybe a tyre, petrol and some matches will do the trick.

  • J-Man - 2012-02-08 09:20

    Appointed by God....ok. What a (even bigger) joke this idiot is.

      J-Man - 2012-02-08 09:53

      Also...why is this (in the) news?

  • Andre - 2012-02-08 09:20

    A country under ungodly rule is doomed!

      Johan - 2012-02-08 09:49

      A country ruled by idiots and people who believe in and blame "evil spirits" for everything, are doomed.

      Grant - 2012-02-08 14:46

      It is written: Context > New American Standard Bible 14 "and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land". I will admit I despair at times but the reality is that God can do it. There are enough good people in South Africa of all races so the lord God will not 'forsake' us.

  • Mike - 2012-02-08 09:21

    Bwahahaha - Evil Spirits = Hawks, SARS, ANC Executive, SAPS.... all which are going to come soon!

      Spot on Mike

      Indeed Mike, they could very well be his own Four Horsemen.

  • Mpho - 2012-02-08 09:22

    what is evil? when the truth is revealed...is it not evil when one loots from the poor....is it not evil when one disrespects elders....is it not evil when one thinks that he is better than everyone...evry Dog has its day....this is a bed he made himself so sleep & enjoy it

  • Fikile Monnye - 2012-02-08 09:27

    Thats true,if he has been appointed by God i believe he will have a great come back and no one would bring him down. #Peace

      Johan - 2012-02-08 09:39

      I just received a message from God. He told me to say that Malema is an idiot and is NOT appointed by Him. So there you have it.

      Cristina - 2012-02-08 11:17

      Hehehehehe..thanks Johan you said it!!!!

      Joseph - 2012-02-08 12:26

      We can see you are as dumb as malema and the ancestor gods are talking to you too.

      Fiona - 2012-02-08 14:44

      Joseph - I think Fikile is being subtle and ironic.

      Merven - 2012-02-10 09:15

      @Joseph, how is 'talking' ancestors in any way more absurd than a invisible god?

  • KyleAssassin - 2012-02-08 09:29

    Can't bribe God mate!

    When DAYS r Dark You Turn to GOD BUT when things r fine You never mention GOD.

  • ivan.coetzee2 - 2012-02-08 09:30

    Their stupidity knows no bounds, and that Baptist preacher should be ex-communicated for talking the crap he is, because he is misleading the people, sayin Malema was appointed by God. Who's God? not mine, mine is not stupid!

      Alan - 2012-02-08 09:50

      Yip agreed - preachers like this are clueless, and mislead people as to what true Christianity is all about. Malema does not believe in God, so who exactly are these clowns praying to? Col. Saunders?

      ivan.coetzee2 - 2012-02-08 11:07

      @Alan: and Johnny Blue, hoping he'll at least take the "blues" away!

      Is this not a womans name: Jacqueline Selolo?

  • Mike - 2012-02-08 09:31

    The baptist church should take this pastor to task for ruining the name of the church by assosiating with the likes of Juju.

  • basie.pretorius - 2012-02-08 09:32

  • John - 2012-02-08 09:36

    I have to wonder how God went about appointing Malema.... and how he communicated this fact to the priest? Can't help wonder if granny didn't have anything to do with these demonic spirits that he held the pray meeting there and not at Latuli house??

      i will get selolo to pray for you

      Alan - 2012-02-08 09:51

      I don't think Juju is gonna rise ... I think he is gonna burn.

      J-Man - 2012-02-08 09:54

      You might not be able to keep a 'good man' down, true, so its not a problem to keep this buffoon on the ground...where he belongs.

      Mpho, he is not a good man, he is a money-hungry thief who pretends to care about the poor while he lives in luxury. Catch a wake-up, he is only in this for himself!

      Mpho Gwala - 2012-02-08 09:45

      I've read it differently to you guys. In my opinion the priests is talking about himself when referring to being appointed by God. God must have spoken to him through the holy oxygen. That is the power priests have. Groly

      DuToitCoetzee - 2012-02-08 10:13

      @Mpho. I also got confused by that, reading all the commentary. Irrelevant who it was who were "appointed" You get these people with the open Bible on the dashboard of a car, but looking at their deeds you wonder. My mum has a nice saying on that. "Die Bybel op die dashboard en die duiwel in/op sy gat" ( The Bible on the dashboard in the devil in/on his ass.)

  • Sicelo - 2012-02-08 10:09

    Its too late to pray for this boy, they should have prayed for him before he learned how to speak because he's been speaking nonsense ever since. Yes prayer coupled with good upbringing breeds a good leader but this was obviously absent in Julius's childhood. When you a lemon seed you will reap lemons and you will be wasting your time praying for oranges.

    Pastor Selolo should be casting the demons out of Malema ... the spirit of greed, anger, pride, rebelion (which is as the sin of witchcraft) and I'm sure many other demons... would come out of Malema! Agree with CHRIS... God don't appoint skelms and thieves!
