Malema fumes over Hawks media leaks

2011-11-01 22:48

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema feels his human rights are being undermined by media leaks from the police, SABC news reported on Tuesday.

The broadcaster said Malema was considering approaching the public protector and the Human Rights Commission over the matter.

In an interview, Malema said he was worried over what he labelled as persistent leaks from an unnamed source within the Hawks crime fighting unit.

"There can't be leakages in an institution like the Hawks. It means people working there are not loyal to the internal processes," Malema said.

"The Hawks themselves have to be concerned why such an individual behaves that way. They must investigate themselves because that individual undermines investigations and the integrity of the institution itself."

Several news reports have suggested that Malema would be charged by the Hawks upon his return from a friend's multimillion rand wedding in Mauritius.

The Sunday Independent was the first to report that the Hawks have prima facie evidence of corruption related to the awarding of tenders to companies Malema has an interest in.

The reports said Malema would be arrested and be brought before a court to answer allegations of fraud, corruption and money laundering.

Malema said he was willing to co-operate.

On Monday, league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu issued a statement saying there had never been any form of communication between Malema and the Hawks.

"The faceless sources quoted in the newspaper reports are spreading sensational rumours," Shivambu said.

      He should calm down before he gets a heart attack. Bio-slim side effects leaves minds dilusional.

      I thought that he said that he could not wait to prove himself innocent in court. A certain Mr Zuma also made the same noises, and then he did his utmost to delay, postpone and have the case thrown out......

      I know it's wishful thinking but... Does the Public Protector have the right to lock up anyone who tries to use her for protection under false pretences?

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2011-11-02 00:49

      There is simply now way a person your age, who has never worked in the formal sector his entire life, and did not inherit his wealth from his parents could become so successful without legitimate questions being asked about how you accrued your assets. Trace me and hate me - I speak the truth. The same laws apply to everyone in this Country.

      Christelle - 2011-11-02 02:14

      "It means people working there are not loyal to the internal processes," Malema said." Rich coming from the man who has absolutely no respect for the internal processes of the youth league's mother body. @RBphiri - do you really want him to calm down before he gets a heart attack:-)

      Morne - 2011-11-02 06:34

      Julius, please go and tell this storie to the hundreds of widows on the farms. BTW, we dont give a sheet, but you will go down. The media is out to get you my friend. If you can remember, its a hole you digged for yourself.

      Jarryd - 2011-11-02 06:47

      OK time for these "hawks" to be disbanded :P

      Bryan - 2011-11-02 08:04

      @myancmyfuture, our constitution doesnt allow for racisim or corruption... Woops

      Kuno - 2011-11-02 08:30

      after that build a bridge and get over it

      MissGremlin - 2011-11-02 09:00

      Interesting that he feels his human rights have been violated. He does actually have a valid argument. He should however, consider that every time he sings "that song", he violates the human rights of our farming community. Apparently it doesn't feel very nice when the tables are turned.

      Myancmyfuture - 2011-11-02 09:05

      @ Bryan, What does this news piece have to do with racism or am I reading a different article.

      Herman - 2011-11-02 09:47

      "The faceless sources quoted in the newspaper reports are spreading sensational rumours," Shivambu said." F-F-Floyd, I'm marking your words...we'll talk again.

      JMan - 2011-11-02 10:14

      @ Myancmyfuture ... you brought up the constitution in their defense... the very constitution('s rules) that these imbeciles disregard nearly on a daily basis... so yes, Bryan's comment was very valid...wake up.

      Myancmyfuture - 2011-11-02 11:19

      @ JMan The constitution of this country was not drafted in line with your anger and emotions and Malema has not been charged or tried by any court on this matter and up until that has been, his right as a citizen cannot be infringed by a state institution. If an officer is arresting a criminal and does not read him his rights then that case may be thrown out of court so says our constitution and that's irrespective if the accused is the sunday rapist. I understand Malema is the most hated person in SA (by whites) but our constitution cannot be used like a tissue and flush when it suitrs you.

      Brian - 2011-11-02 11:34

      Myancmyfuture. Don't you think that your statement that malema is hated only by whites is racialistic in itself? It suggests that he is hated BECAUSE he is black rather than because folk believe he is EVIL! If these blogs are anything to go by there are many, many blacks that don't care much for him either!

      Myancmyfuture - 2011-11-02 16:22

      @ Mitchelle, I think that Malema is used as an excuse, yes he does have an element of foot and mouth I agree but the resentment towards means he's probably hitting the right buttons to some extent. His alleged corruption is purely a legal matter that needs to be dealt with thouroughly by authorities without infringing his rights because of an old ANC song he sang and the journalists were at hand to interprete it and its alleged intent. In terms of posts on this blog I can't tell if the Dumisani's and Mandla's are actualy black, they could be Wackhead Simpson for all we know as many are faceless, but I am also concerned about his self enrichment but I just don't know what this hype around him especially by white people. It could be that their wives find him sexy and are attracted to him, I can't tell. @ Brianm, I have taken note of your concern and if it offends you, My apologies.

      Gaanake - 2011-11-02 21:48

      You got to give it to Myancmyfuture, one of the rare "comrades" who can debate facts and not become racially rude. But s/he must remember that just as much as the late ET antaginised a lot of blacks, Juju is doing the opposite by antagonising whites. For instance, he sings songs that hurt them, calls them thieves, wants to expropriate their land without compensation etc. Both examples that I have cited, unfortunately destroy the good that Tata Mandela built - he really tried to build a South Africa that belonged to all who lived in it. What a pity, at one time, it was so promising...!

      Jaba - 2011-11-03 00:09

      Just another fat f...

      JMan - 2011-11-03 10:36

      @ Myancmy"future" : "Malema has not been charged or tried by any court on this matter (not yet you mean) and up until that has been, his right as a citizen cannot be infringed by a state institution." No one is "infringing hi right as a citizen"... he is doing that himself by being a corrupt liar who steals from his own people, including you. But I won't argue with you. You have your views, I have mine. Lets just see what happens when the truth (finally) comes out, shall we?

  • Blue - 2011-11-01 23:04

    Oh Please!!! Mademma is the last person on earth who can complain about any 'individual' ... undermining investigations and the integrity of an institution itself!!

  • AnthonyZA - 2011-11-01 23:05

    Reaping what you sow Malema, what you say about white people violates my human rights. Time to lie in the bed you have made for yourself.

  • Warren - 2011-11-01 23:06

    It's a conspiracy to use truth, evidence and his own actions against him

  • Dumisani - 2011-11-01 23:07

    I cant wait to see this dumb, fat, tool, behind bars. That is going to be a great day!

      jody.beggs - 2011-11-02 08:22

      I said the same thing about Zuma .... Where's he now ! (Only in South Africa)

      Myancmyfuture - 2011-11-02 09:24

      @ Kenny We don't know for sure if Dumisani de Klerk is black. In the old era, som of the most educated man went to London and the US to defend apartheid as a misunderstood policy of good neighbourliness and they were praised by whites as geniuses that all blacks are supposed to learn. They were also praised fo r distancing themselves from "terrorists like Mandela". So I can't support Malema's alleged corruption and if found guilty he should go to jail and the key be thrown away but the Hawks needs to manage their information properly.

  • ulvenkai - 2011-11-01 23:09

    Always amusing when someone like Malema wants "human rights" to apply to him but founded his political life on preaching that people should infringe on the basic human rights of others.

  • Marion - 2011-11-01 23:21

    If they arrest him he'll have more armed guards of his own than there are in the entire prison... alternatively he can argue that arresting him will increase the rate of unemployment in SA because his battalion of bodyguards won't have jobs... My heart breaks for him... poor persecuted victim...

  • Dumisani - 2011-11-01 23:21

    I hope Malema is enjoying his fancy little holiday, because he probably aint gonna have too many of those when all is said and done. And when he get`s home, I hope he appreciates that 16 milion rand house of his before it get`s seized. Do you hear that? Do you? It`s the world smallest violin, just for you Malema. *smiles*

  • William - 2011-11-01 23:34

    Am i understsnding this correctly, are the Hawks really waiting to arrest the fat ass at last? please let it be so.

      Deon - 2011-11-02 08:32

      They probably want to get all theire ducks in a row before arresting him.

  • Jack - 2011-11-01 23:50

    "Persistant leaks from an unnamed source". That breaks your heart. I say your persistant revolutionary talks break the country apart.

  • Mahlatse Mabena - 2011-11-01 23:56

    Malema has a "Get Out Jail" cards up his sleeves. No one can touch him. Especially when everyone wants him to go to jail. He's going to break a lot of those million people's hearts.

      Ahmed - 2011-11-02 07:12

      You dont know this but his tender "buddies" were all standing in line at the hawks offices about 4 days ago ready to rat on malema hoping that they will get a deal out of it..... to there suprise, the hawks told them we do not need your statement, we have enough proof and then we are coming for YOU next... so thank you for coming to stand in line.

  • Lisa - 2011-11-02 00:01

    Most of these negative articles written on Malema are from white owned media. The negative comments are mostly from whites who are terrified of Malema gaining power and making sure they don't profit from the land and resources of South Africa. Many Africans who support him are too poor and don't have access to computers to show their support. Whites need to mind their own business and let the blacks handle their own affairs.

      Adam - 2011-11-02 00:27

      Lisa daring, what scares me most is that its clear that you are literate. Sadly, not well educated or informed.

      Gary - 2011-11-02 00:52

      What do you know about South Africa, Lisa? You are from the US and live in New York. If the "negative" comments are mostly from whites then what do you make of the "negative" ones from black people. It comes down to education and knowing that the drivel that Malema spews at the uneducated masses will never benefit them, Malema is nothing more than a corrupt dictator just like his friend Bob and late mate Col Gadaffi. So please, until you actually live in South Africa and understand what takes place, please refrain from commenting on something you know very little about. Thank you.

      Ronald - 2011-11-02 00:53

      Lisa, before you make these sweeping statements make use of the technology used to create this post to do your research. Most of the the media, including this forum, is BEE or majority black owned. If a person like Malema generates negative actions, words or attitudes, of course the articles will reflect this. I do not speak for all whites or people of whatever colour, only for myself and those I know when I say that we do not fear Malema gaining power. We are however, concerned at the damage he is causing locally as well as with foreign business. He is fanning racial hatred to further his own goals while those that he professes to help are sliding further down the slippery slope. Instead of wasting money on fancy watches, clothes, weekend parties(R70 000 cash) etc he could have put his money where his mouth is and shared this with the poor. Without fanfare or accolades I donate 10% of my company's output of medically related products to those that cannot afford medical treatment. I could have used this 10% to grow my company or to enrich myself, but I do have a social conscience. Malema has much more influence and contacts to help create jobs and a better SA, but instead he uses this to create division. Your statement that whites should mind their own business indicates that you are under the impression that we exist separately. We are inexorably linked, whether you like it or not. Black and white affairs affect each other and cant be handled separately.

      Dumisani - 2011-11-02 01:48

      Lisa, you, my dear, are the DEFINITION of stupid. You act stupid, you think stupid, and oh my sack you even look stupid. You are also a racist pig. White South Africans have NOTHING against successful black South Africans, but we do have a problem with people who think they have a right to the resources that other`s have worked hard for. Just because people like Malema spew crap like, 'the whites stole everything from the blacks', that doesn't make it true. "Whites need to mind their own business and let the blacks handle their own affairs." This coming from some douche bag in New York who hasn't contributed an ounce of anything to South Africa

      Ian - 2011-11-02 05:11

      hey lisa or whayever your name is, Farmers are trying to mind there own business but your hero inspires uneducate dungholes like you to go and kill, whose not minding there own business now, stupid uneducated moron

      Christelle - 2011-11-02 06:22

      Lisa, you are so naive - whites are minding their own business - you are trying to take it away. And honestly, does your Malema know how to handle any affairs - as you will notice I refrain from saying "blacks" as you have in your posting, as many of our black people do NOT agree with you, him, or your incomprehensible ideas of job creation and prospering economics. Do you understand what I am saying?

      Christelle - 2011-11-02 06:39

      Honestly Ronald - and all respect where it is due - do you really think what you are saying (which I totally agree with) will make any sense to a person who supports Malema? With him it is nothing but all against white people.

      Ian - 2011-11-02 06:45

      @Dumisani The biggest racists are the ones who make a noise about racism, namely you and your mate lisa and the fat retard

      @Lisa - And you are dumber than a brick. You should open your eyes en see how he steals your money. 10 years from now, you will still be at the exact place you are right now, due to you lending your ears out and believe this overweight zot. Rather get off your ass and START THINKING FOR YOURSELF. With that goes UPLIFTING YOURSELF. Entitlement does not exist

      @Lisa now run along, before the real operator of the P.C you used to type your rubbish with comes back. You might get into a spot of trouble. The reason I say this is because you clearly are not qualified to operate such a complicated piece of equipment. You are a danger to yourself and everyone else.

      Derek - 2011-11-02 08:51

      Lisa you need to get your facts right. The City Press, a "black" run newspaper targeting "black" readers and largely black owned spilt the beans on Malema's dubious family trust and his tenderpreneurship dealings which plunder the state coffers, money which is meant to go toward the upliftment of poor black South Africans. Take the trouble to learn what is going on here before you attack hard working, tax paying, honest "white' South African citizens.

      cathy.eksteen - 2011-11-02 10:05

      Lisa, you see it took one sad SOD like you to actually play the race card.. what has Malema done for you? How many jobs has he created? Do you steal what doesn't belong to you? Would you like to teach your children that? Do you want your children to suffer because of racism? PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE POSTING SUCH RUBBISH!! It's because of the government YOU keep voting for that you are so poor. They have robbed a VERY RICH COUNTRY ONCE to the core and don't know now how to fix it. Catch a wake up please!

      Martin - 2011-11-02 16:35

      Many people before Malema have tried his tricks.None succeeded for a long time.Most of them,like a Taylor,Hussein,Gaddaffi are all in the underground squattercamp,where Malema belongs.

    Why does he fume? Affraid of being exposed for who and what he really is?

    I once saw a man reading a letter to a friend with ear plugs in his ears. When asked why the ear plugs, he said, my friend doesn’t want me to hear what I am reading. (The friend could not read). JM might have thought he is invisible, and that others can’t see what he is doing. A river might flow very slowly, however, eventually the water gets to the sea. Patient people, patient, JM’s orange suit is awaiting him.

    You poor, poor man. Everybody is out to get you. On a positive note: Maybe you can learn woodwork in prison!

    Ag shame, it must be really embarrassing for him to be exposed like this, caught with both his hands in the cookie jar.

      More likely both hands in the KFC Family bucket...

    it is a sad thing to hear that our fellow black south african are being investigated for having their businesses .

      Deon - 2011-11-02 08:37

      He can have many businesses, but if he is corrupt and / or not paying taxes he is breaking the law and should get punished.

    Oh please Hawks pretty please bring Juju down!!!! we're so darn tired of him!!!!

  • branden.hart - 2011-11-02 08:12

    Offence is the best form of defence. Lets make a prediction: he will be charged with something, there will be a long court case, he will be found guilty AND THEN, it will be overturned due to precedural irregularities related to the leaks. So predictable.

    Hey Julius!!! Where there's smoke THERE'S FIRE!!!! :P

  • Derryn - 2011-11-02 08:24

    He does, however, have a valid point. We have to question the integrity of either someone in the Hawks or someone in the media if there are "leaks" like these. There is no better way to compromise a case against Julius than to alert him and his allegedly guilty parties to what is coming... Surely rather spring news like that on him so he can't run off to a lawyer and the Human Rights Commission

      Agreed. I for one would have loved for him to be arrested without him having a chance to use his shredder - must be working overtime now. Anybody seeing a pall of smoke hanging over his back yard?
