Malema runs ANCYL 'like family trust'

2011-10-03 15:38

Johannesburg - ANCYL president Julius Malema has come under fire from suspended KwaZulu-Natal chairperson Mthandeni Dlungwane over his leadership style.

"He [Malema] can’t be allowed to run the organisation as if he is running his family trust," Dlungwane said on Monday.

The ANC Youth League announced on Sunday it had disbanded the KwaZulu-Natal branch's executive committee. It accused the provincial leadership of encouraging members to defy decisions made by the national structure.

However, Dlungwane said the provincial executive was purged because it backed President Jacob Zuma to serve a second term.

KZN ‘targeted’

He also claimed KwaZulu-Natal leaders had been targeted because they refused to mobilise league members to support Malema when he appeared before an ANC disciplinary committee.

Dlungwane said it was worrying that the ANCYL was being used by some leaders for personal gain, and that it should not be run like a trust.

It was recently reported that Malema had a family trust which was using to finance his lavish lifestyle.

The disbanded KwaZulu-Natal ANCYL executive committee would meet in Durban on Monday afternoon, Dlungwane said.

"We are going to have a meeting this afternoon to discuss what we will do following the disbandment of the PEC."

‘Contracts with NYDA’

Dlungwane said they had not been formally told of the decision.

"We have seen it on newspapers and radio stations that we have been disbanded. I am still in my office as we speak."

ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said on Sunday that internal disciplinary charges were going to be brought against Dlungwane, former KwaZulu-Natal deputy secretary Sboniso Duma and former treasurer Yolanda Young.

Dlungwane accused ANCYL national leaders of benefiting from the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA).

"All they want is to be multi-millionaires. We know some ANCYL leaders have contracts with NYDA."

Malema was not immediately available to comment.

      Everyone knows this - the KZN youth league should be grateful that it can distance itself from this mess. And to the youth of SA: President Mbeki was ousted because he "didn't communicate or consider others in the organisation" - if that is true, you have the perfect reason to deal with the current youth league leadership. Let's see if Polokwane was real, or just a hijack for money.

      Why do they open can of worms now,is it because they are fighting for the loot at NYDA

      Yes and so the cookie crumbles, can't he just grow a pair and provide the names and the evidence for the YL members that has contracts with NYDA, as it would be nice to see how much money of the kissing competition went to the pockets of their comrades.

      sushi - 2011-10-03 16:08

      KZN stop supporting jacob zuma because he is Zulu,but because of his capabilty,so stop crying you shot yourself on the foot. i would also disband you if i was NEC OF ANCYL.they are going through DC because of the resolutions and the mandate you gave the NEC,Now you distance yourself what have you been promised we will soon find out.

      G.du Plessis - 2011-10-03 16:11

      @sganja: I don't think the dictatorial, undemocratic Malema and co. are going to help our organisation! People within the Youth League should feel free to support whoever they like when it comes to who should be president - that is democratic. We don't want to return to the days where people had no democratic rights surely. Viva the ANC - let us stop divisive, undemocratic actions in the party. Soweto is much better than 20 years ago, but there is still work to do - lots of it!

      Slartibartfast - 2011-10-03 16:12

      Oh My GAWD people ... I see Sganja is also here this afternoon ... the stupid twat!! But this story? Really? Yaaaaawwwwwnnnnn .... Windowdressing .... deviding of attention .... you know .... that which politicians do best (other than lie and steal that is).

      DW - 2011-10-03 16:27

      I think it is fantastic. Malema will be disciplined this weekend and will probably be suspended for a couple of years. But I still think Zuma will not get another term. KZN is not strong enough to vote him in on their own. This is good new, not bad news

      You guys you don't know whether you are coming or going. One time you call Zuma, showerman and now that his cronies are being purged, all of a sudden he is a good man. Why don't you just stick to your DA?

      Pekkie - 2011-10-04 07:50

      Agwambo keep quiet, no one said you may speak troll! My Maid once told me, You don't have to worry about the educated people, they will help build a nation, she said you must be suspicious of those who think they are educated, they will destroy themselves and not even know it, My guess is you Think too much, At the end of the day you and your type who have sold your children's future to a racist corrupt cause will cry the longest, why? because you were part of nothing other than hatred, You couldn't build a lego man, so again i say Hamba wena, you are the problem with SA, If the solution is laid out you will be slave once again, Slave to your own hatred, You have doomed yourself and your kids will watch you destroy their future, and they will ultimately judge you to be a racist who couldn't handle the truth! There will come a day when you are all alone, the regret of robbing your offspring will eat at you for all your miserable days! May they be short, A country doesn't need your type , you should relocate to Zim twat!

      Agwambo I feel sorry for you. Take off your blinkers and see the world for what it is. Difficult for you I guess.

      Support the move for independince for KZN!!!!!

      Spyker May - 2011-10-04 10:58

      @eric.vanvuuren.., If the Western Cape and KZN join forces and each calls an UNILATERAL DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - then the fascist ANC regime will topple within a few months (if not weeks). In fact you may find the Northern Cape and possibly Gauteng may follow suit. Even if the aim is not sovereign independence, but rather a CONFEDERATION OF STATES (similar to the USA and alike) - it will be light years ahead of the retarded totalitarian stone-age mongers of the current regime. The consequent economies will grow at a rate faster than China - eg can you imagine only the losses from corruption and incompetence alone being properly employed in the economy - the rate of unemployment will be cut in half... The ANC's atavistic demeanour has taken SA further back into evolution than has ever been the case in the last (around) 200 years - reminder, the interior of SA was liberated from the stone-age, only from around 170 years ago.

    It's never been adequately answered whether or not Malema speaks of his own or with the backing from senior leaders of the ANC.Hardly a day goes by in South Africa that the ANC Youth League or its President Julius Malema has not been on News24 or somewhere else.This Julius Malema fella has been featured in the front page profile article from the "Mail and Guardian",a front page article in the "Sunday Independent",on numerous radio interviews--including Talk Radio 702 and Five FM. He has a rap sheet roughly twice as long as Mandela spent in prison from hosting wild parties in northern Johannesburg that reportedly rage late into the evening and are fueled by alcohol and sex,being involved in several court cases in front of the Equality Court,being accused of hate speech,said that the woman who accused Zuma of rape in 2006 "had a nice time",said that those who excuse racism are criminals who deserve to be shot,said that South Africa should nationalize the country's mines for extra revenue and that the Freedom Charter says that,was stopped once by traffic officials for speeding on the road between Polokwane and Seshego and then had the nerve to berate them and asked:"Do you know who I am?". Malema does what he does because poor people in SA are fascinated by him and his outlandish statements,which in turn sell newspapers and draw listeners.Malema is one hell off a ambitious twat that seeks the SA Presidency. Question is though:Where does Mr Zuma stand on these issues?

      PAR - 2011-10-03 16:01

      Mr. Zuma does not stand anywhere because he wants to stay on as President for a further term. He tries to keep everyone happy. Who wouldn't want his job? Getting paid to travel the world.

      Together - 2011-10-03 16:06

      sganja - I know that part of your racist indoctrination may have led you to believe that white South Africans aren't actually people, but *newsflash* we are - and we're also citizens, and who leads (or doesn't lead) the country is of great interest to us all. And a leader who is strong, sound, fair and efficient is good for everyone. C'mon, dude - you've got to do better than this.

      Warren - 2011-10-03 16:54

      We isolate Malema because as a leader its HIS Responsibility to tend ALL Matters regaring the ANCYL. Therefore if the ANCYL is being run into the ground we come to the LEADER for answers - not his PA! Malema has everything to do with this and if they (ANCYL) would stop with the propoganda to weak minded individuals that believe his lies and still after so many years do not have running water and electricity hopefully we'll be able to make some progress! Until then it's a case of the Blind leading the blind!

  • ~daisy_d~ - 2011-10-03 16:00

    They are their own worst enemy...the beginning of the end is what I say. Malema will never become president - he's too busy screwing up his relationships all over the show. Hopefully people will start seeing him for what he is...a back-stabber who throws tantrums like children if he can't get what he wants.

  • ChumScrubber - 2011-10-03 16:18

    Apparently young Juju is not very fond of Zulu's, he merely supported Zuma as a means to get more influence in the ANC. Hopefully Zuma will be stronger than what Malema perceived. It seems tribalism is after all a factor in ANC politics, they have tried to squash it but it keeps coming back. A natural thing I suppose, "soort soek soort".

  • Lonewolfman - 2011-10-03 16:25

    This is not new and do they think we are idiots for not knowing this earlier. what a joke the ANC need to relook at ANCYL and close it down and reform a youth wing that can help the party not make it the biggest joke in Africa or to enrich a handfull of power hungry dictators.

      Alice - 2011-10-03 17:46

      Imagine the youth league gathered up unemployed young males, and said to them come let us build the communities. Let us get in there and build houses, food gardens and help repair parks etc, and in return we give you a plate of food. Something like that. Help each other!! But then for ancyl it is about "giving the youth the diamonds and gold bars", with lots of talking!! Jujus is destroying, not building. Pity, I would have respected him if he was truly helping the poor in this needy time.

  • Bulumko - 2011-10-03 16:34

    I had hoped - albeit against all hope that other provinces would follow suit.Particularly the Eastern Cape where Malema doesn't enjoy as much support as it's made out to be amongst the youth.But alas,the youth league is led by gutless wretches who have nothing but greed and tenders in their sights.

      Mandla - 2011-10-03 22:36

      Uneducated youth will always be a problem to our society not matter what political position they are occupying.Lets get it right on our education then we will have a free thinking youth who can not be told what to do by holigans.Educated youth will be in a position of diterming between the good and the bad,currently they are just following holigans in the ANCYL who did not have formal education for leading the Youth League in the right direction.All what we are seeing and hearing are the products of lack of education among our majorith youth particulary black youth.

      I always advise the kzn new members that ANC is not about an individual.yu Druce and Mobiles yo do not know what I am talking about this province has changed the mission of the ANC and bring the traditional politics they think its about Zulus to be in power.the ANC says best leader must lead.in pulukwana they have forced that Zuma must take over and we said ok we will suport Zuma but this Zulu tendence must end.Now as ANC we noticed that many south african are not hapy about the current leadeship.then the is a proposal that an academic side and experiance for any potfoilor for our deligets must also be in consideration.that is what they are refusing to the media they are using Malema.it that stupit Druce?.becouse I personaly noticed that our goverment words are more than actions.and we need good leaders regardless of which tribe or pagmentation coulor.

      Together - 2011-10-04 09:23

      @mylord - if you spent as much time respecting the ANC as you do Malema, and as much time hating corruption as you do Zulus - then you would be on the right track. SA needs people who are capable of learning, people who are wise enough to see when they are right, and when they are wrong. SA needs people who are able to stand up against the mob and stand for what is good for everyone. Basically, SA needs law-abiding adults. Unfortunately you just sound like someone who thinks politics is like supporting a soccer team - you will need to take it a lot more seriously if you want SA to have a prosperous future.

      mylord - 2011-10-04 12:20

      @together do not get me wrong.I respect every one.I had lot of differences with malema.I even ask him is capetown if why Zuma and Him when the are talking about preo presindents why do they not mentioned Thabo Mbeki and he said he is the ANCYL press not ANC I can ask tha to Zuma.so i get worreid when zuma wents to the media and talk about Malema saying he in not incontrol.why he was quet the time Malema say he will kill for him? I like malema becouse is some one you can use to gain the power secondly He is an ANC member.

    Get rid of the ANCYL permanently. In this era they really have nothing to fight for. Most of then are younger than me and they carry on about the struggle (which happened before myself or them were born). That was in an era that has past. Get on with it. Instead of instilling hate (which is the easiest option and gains the vote of those previously oppressed) Rather be a nation that is one to be proud of, and see what the politicians try to do to us, by calling the separation lines. Don't fall for it!

    i hope to god the rest of the YL's begin to be disbanded aswell! Finally! Malema rein will be over soon!!!

    Malema's little world is starting to unravel. Soon he'll only have the support of a few pals that still owe him favours, but his time will soon come and he'll have to eat humble pie. Just wait till the disciplinary decisions are made in a few days time. he has overplayed his hand and will end up with a mouth full of oversized feet.

    South Africa is loosing touch slowly,if this train does not stop i am afraid that we might be derailed faster than any other African train we have ever seen.some one needs to stand up now and say enough is enough.Put a stop tothis train before it approachs the blind corner. When people are fighting for the sole control of tenders in governmant this is what happens at the end of the day. Reminder-ANCYL can dictate who will be the leader of the ANC but will not dictate for the majority of our people to vote for the ANC,be warned.South Africa needs a strong opposition which will be an altanative to the ANC sooner or later we will regrate.

    zuma will win the election next year because ultimately both cosatu and sacp would rather weaken the power base of malema than take down zuma.remember what i said when it happens next year...:)
