Malema stable in hospital, ANCYL says

2011-10-05 20:43

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema was in a stable condition after being admitted to a private hospital in Polokwane on Wednesday, the league said.

"The ANCYL are assured that president Julius Malema is in a stable condition," it said in a statement.

The league said a doctor requested Malema to stay in the hospital for observation until he was in full health.

"The reasons for the hospitalisation are not major. He will be discharged soon."

It declined to give more details on his condition, saying Malema's health was a private matter.

"Members of the media are therefore humbly requested to not make enquiries concerning this, nor pry into the privacy of the president's health, because doing so is unethical, immoral and despicable."

The SABC reported earlier that Malema was suffering from "flu symptoms" and would not attend his African National Congress disciplinary hearing in Johannesburg on Thursday.

    Too bad...we all wished for the worst for him

      emile.eley - 2011-10-06 06:59

      Newsflash morons. There are a HUGE number of Black medical professionals. Hopefully when you go to hospital the scalpel will slip. Here's hoping. By the way, I really don't think that your collective IQ is greater than that of a common garden snail.

      Dav - 2011-10-06 07:32

      Yeah, can't someone slip him a nasty pill. Typical ANC rhetoric, of course he is stable, there is fu%K all wrong with the fat bald ignorant oxygen stealing useless excuse for a human being.

      York Hunt - 2011-10-06 07:46

      Malema is a Wuss!

      Persona_non_grata - 2011-10-06 07:48

      Good now he can attend his sentence hearing today. It is amazing how all these ANC and corrupt people like Shaik and Celebe falls ill and is admitted to hospital just before sentence date or just before they must carry out their sentences. Eish must be a horrible worrying stomach bug, that makes their behind like a open tap, it happens when you worry to much and you know you are wrong and are accused.

      Persona_non_grata - 2011-10-06 08:51

      Ag no man I got my suit out, shoe polished and hair cut for a funeral, all my hard work for nothing, hopefully soon i will have to do it for real.

      Green Oaks - 2011-10-06 09:04

      Looks like Tutu's praying for ill health is already working.

      Persona_non_grata - 2011-10-06 09:38

      The falling ill club of South Africa. Shabir Shaik, Bheki Cele, Julius Malema next one will be Sheryl Cwele, amazingly mysterious how all of them falls ill during court sentences or before the must carry out their sentences...............

      My Father - 2011-10-06 10:23

      Yes, that is right. This is a bad news. I thought he is going to die.

  • Bart Zimzon - 2011-10-05 20:51

      Al Chemist - 2011-10-05 20:58

      Because he generally isn't

  • Ryan Tunney - 2011-10-05 20:55

    Did he go to a witch doctor as per his culture? Or is he perhaps exploiting treatment that the "imperialist" brought here? Anyway, hopefully he joins his ancestors soon!!

      thozi - 2011-10-05 21:39

      Cry for me South Africa... yeah, seriously really.

      Jacobus van Tonder - 2011-10-05 22:07

      @Agwambo, please say if you are from Ovambo land? If so, you in the wrong country sir! This is how it all starts, 1-flu, 2-sores don't heal and more till the defence can no longer keep up and then a cold or infection sets in and it's all over....

      Richard Hipkin - 2011-10-06 08:09

      @RuSaffa, wow your comment is so twisted that you are actually worse then the people you accuse. Take a good look in the mirror my friend and see the face of evil... I am an atheist and I am English and I am probably a much better human then you will ever be.

      RuSaffa - 2011-10-06 08:36

      @Richard Hipkin...Why are you getting so upset? Is it because I spoke the truth?

  • revolution - 2011-10-05 20:57

    What are you doing in private hospital? F**king off, you should be in government hospital! You want to nationalised the mines, uh? Where is the prove that nationalised mines/hospital services is the best?

  • Bart Zimzon - 2011-10-05 21:00

    Thursday news: 11.00am: ANC delays malema's disciplinary meeting 11.05am: Malema leaves private stable in hospital 11.06am: Horse put back in stable. 11.07am: Malema says mines will not be nationalized but grabbed 19.00pm: Malema back in stable in hospital and will not be able to attend SARS questionaire meeting on Friday

      Yoni - 2011-10-05 21:20

      Yes, but his mind remains unstable.

  • LuLuBug - 2011-10-05 21:03

    Shame, maybe at the disciplinary they will decide to send him flowers and a "get better soon" card. Urgh!

  • Vernon - 2011-10-05 21:05

      Matt :-) - 2011-10-06 11:23

      I know and now it's too late :-( but it was late in the evening and commenting from the cellphone is tough...

  • nowinlondon - 2011-10-05 21:11

    "Unethical, immoral and despicable" Are they describing 'the president' here?

      Tolerant - 2011-10-06 10:26

      This reminds me of the childrens movie: "Despicable me"

      An African - 2011-10-06 15:36

      So why are you in London? Should stick with your friend Malema! He will need your support,

  • Vela Stardust - 2011-10-05 21:11

    Can't see Juju getting any sympathy. Shabir's trick is old hat.

  • johan - 2011-10-05 21:12

  • Trueblue - 2011-10-05 21:15

    Shaik, Shaik rotten rolls! unethical, immoral and despicable. I wonder who this description fits. Strange to be coming out of an organ such as the youth league.

  • Lyndatjie - 2011-10-05 21:20

    Shame man - sounds like Malema's general system is totally run down. Why else would flu-like symptoms land him in hospital? What IS very telling, is that NO state run hospital would take anybody up for just flu-like symptoms... According to their policies - its a waste of money and state resources to treat something as mundane as flu. So isn't our Malema quite the hypocrite! Wants to rip the wealth from the select view and share it among everybody - yet he doesn't hesitate to book himself into a PRIVATELY RUN hospital..... Deliberately flaunting his inability to put his money where his mouth is. Lets face it - its not about the poor Malema - its about your political ambitions and getting elected in office one day with the help of the poor, the uneducated and the gullible. If only they could see you for the double-dealing despot-in-the-making child you truly are. Maybe if you weren’t such a money-grabbing little boy who has his hand constantly caught in the cookie jar and no guard in front of his mouth…. Maybe then some of us with a semblance of intelligence MIGHT actually sit up and take notice. But alas… his actions dictate how the world perceives him….

  • Jonas_Barbar - 2011-10-05 21:23

    who was it? Cele? who used the same ploy

      York Hunt - 2011-10-06 10:43

      And Schabir Sheik. Maybe Cheryl Cwele should use the same ploy??? Any bets?

    The president???? This guy Malema aint no president....Its just making us all used to the fact that he will be president one day, and he will continue to kill the country only for himself... Watch out South Africa... your on the verge of a racial war....

  • Jasber - 2011-10-05 21:30

    Why does he go to a PRIVATE HOSPITAL when his brothers go to government hospitals? Hope they castrate him while he is there. What an As#HOLE - MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE

      Ryan Tunney - 2011-10-05 21:46

      He hasn't got balls so they can't castrate him...or is that her?

      No Jon JJ, that's caster semenya.

  • Bart Zimzon - 2011-10-05 21:49

    Surely they meant "in a stable"?

  • Boxxer - 2011-10-05 22:24

    Surgeons may as well rewire his brain while he's still there.

  • Zenz - 2011-10-05 22:28

    Private hospital? I am now very confused....why not a State hospital?

      Tinkie - 2011-10-06 10:08

      Preferably a mental hospital.

  • John.L - 2011-10-06 01:30

    Let's hope he recovers soon - who else are we gonna have to laugh at and heap scorn on otherwise? Maybe the doctors have finally discovered that when he was circumcised they threw away the wrong bit!!

      emile.eley - 2011-10-06 07:12

      And you make a fantastic argument for birth control.

      Absolutely not Mystre. I think it's high time this nest of racist vipers is shaken up a bit. Absolute, unadulterated trash talk most of the time. Come on let's engage constructively then.

      sorry emile, you can not use the word "racist" when this despot is your god...

      But I'm going to guess that will take awhile since you're nothing more than a troll trying to provoke people with personal attacks rather than opposing their political/personal opinions. GL HF Kid.

      Shame I see emile is quiet, Maybe he has gone to the hospital to wipe Malema's crack

  • zena - 2011-10-06 07:39

    Who cares, why are you not reporting on real sick people that lie in government hospitals that are dying. This is a coward that cannot face the music. The old saying of HE WHO FIGHTS AND RUNS AWAY, LIVES TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY applies to him and his followers. Only in SA would they allow such an ignorant and ill informed piece of s..t to dictate on how things must be done that in practical will never work, this is about revenge to them and nothing else, no thought to what the implications will be and how it will mainly effect the poor in this country.
