Malema support splits Cosas

2011-03-29 22:32

Bloemfontein - The Congress of SA Students in the Free State backs ANC Youth League president Julius Malema for a second term, the provincial leadership said on Tuesday.

This was after Cosas's national leadership said Malema was giving the ANCYL a bad name and it would not back him for a second term.

Cosas president Bongani Mani said the congress would rather support the league's Gauteng chair Lebogang Maile, who is also the province's MEC for sport, culture, arts and recreation.

But Cosas Free State leader Nono Mokoma expressed disappointment at the declaration of support for Maile.

"In so far as the matter is concerned, Cosas in our province recognises Julius Malema as the president of the ANCYL, and we support Julius because nobody can dispute his political activism in our struggle.

"We known him from his days in Cosas and he is a well trained cadre of the revolution, no amount of mockery and selfish critics can convince the membership and the leadership of Cosas in Free State to support Lebogang Maile or any ambitious pothole that will want to emerge in the upcoming congress of the ANCYL," said Mani in a statement.

"We are very clear that we supported and continue to support the leadership of JuJu. Malema has been dragged through the mud because of his bravery to take any issue with anyone head on without any intimidation, and therefore we will defend him as our product and as part of our legacy."

The ANCYL was preparing for its 24th national elective congress to be held in June and nominations for new leadership began in February.

After Cosas expressed support for Maile, ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said "someone" was "using Cosas to lobby for themselves".

League support had so far come out in favour of Malema in seven out of nine provinces with decisions from Gauteng and Western Cape outstanding.

      "We known him from his days in Cosas and he is a well trained cadre of the revolution" Well - at least now we now know learning to become a cadre of the revolution is at least not as difficult as having to pass woodwork . . .

FYI Malema doesn't represent the entire black population. no wonder why our country's Pres is a laughing stock to the international community. It's has become easy for dumbass to become Pres.geez

      Stephen - 2011-03-30 04:19

      Tshepo.. Malema doesn't represent majority of the blacks...in fact you're not even aware that majority of hard working blacks like us hate him with passion.I f you say Malema will make black rich...sorry dude you wont be rich, you need to go back to school, get a job and stop being a fan of some rich quick fatcat you call a leader.

      paulf - 2011-03-30 06:55

      Hey Tshepo, you want to have another uneducated person as a President. havn't you learnt from Zuma with his standard 3? Now a man that can not even pass woodwork. Please man, select proper intelectual people for a post as President. We need to move forwards not backwards. How on earth can you select a President with a Criminal record. The world is laughing at us.

      Saamprater - 2011-03-30 07:09

      Yeah Tsepo, and you think you will join the feeding frenzy? Maybe you will, from the sidelines, watching.

      Steen - 2011-03-30 09:20

      He speaks for Black People and he is not afraid of anyone. just like Steve Hofmeyer who is the darling of white South African, Juju is a darling of Black South Africans. we love him, and it would be a victory for the masses should he become the president, white people should stop calling us names just because we are not agreeing with them, rather talk about DA, FF+ and so forth and leave our party alone, afterall it is us who voted for ANC not whites.

      Melly30 - 2011-03-30 09:27

      Steen - and that will be your biggest downfall, the ANC is not how it se to be, they are not following in Mandela's foot steps, the ANC IS ALL ABOUT CORRUPTION, wake up they are screwing you over too!!! We dont have a problem with black people... You seem to be the racist ones!!!

      Steen - 2011-03-30 09:55

      @Melly30 we dont have a problem with white people either. What baffles me though is how you lot tries to work us against our own Party, our own people, do you really think we will ever Vote for any other party than ANC? Hell no wait for May 18 see who will win more municipalities.

      Melly30 - 2011-03-30 10:00

      @steen - it is about service - the ANC is not giving us that! They are rather taking OUR hard earned money for themselves... I would rather VOTE for a party that does deliever and is for all the people, not like the ANC, Sure, they fought for your freedom... That is over now, we need to stand together and fight together and get a government who does not steal, rape etc... the list goes on... Look around you, we have gone down since Zuma and Malema to over... This country is doomed if it carries on any longer! Vote for another party then who can stop this nonsene...

      Steen - 2011-03-30 10:20

      @Melly30 I agree with you there...but with comments from the likes of Steve Hoffmeyer it will take some miracles for most black people to vote for DA, which I agree is doing some greate job. Another issue is who the DA put in their candidates list, if there will be more white faces it will only cost them votes because of previous experiences in the hands of a white man. Remember we don’t trust each other and that is a fact. So let’s everyone votes for the party that they believe it best present them.

      Melly30 - 2011-03-30 10:30

      @steen, I know it is hard to trust us cos of Apartheid, but that was not us!! That was our Grandfathers and Great Grandfathers... But it is not like that now.... I hope one day we will all be voting for the same party, a party for all!!!

      Opinionated - 2011-03-30 12:15

      I am beginning to think that you are actually just an alter-Alias that someone has been created with the intention of pissing people off, mostly because you have had some of the most usless comments that i have ever seen. However, if this isn't faked, then i can only say that i pity you and your lack of education.

      White_Rhino - 2011-03-30 12:56

      Money is blind. It knows no skin colour. It gravitates towards the better educated. Considering Malema is a youth leader the education of the youth should be his biggest priority. Malema, in stead of helping your own people you keep ass raping them. What a waste of a perfectly good black skin you are.

  • braveinternetguy - 2011-03-30 02:22

    What I fear most about the ANCYL is (absolutely) not their militaristic tendencies nor their apparent umbrella immunity, but that they are apparently willing to pick a fight with virtually ANYONE. That, plus their worship-like adoration of their leaders, hint at some serious problems that may lie ahead. Once these mindless thughs start causing their much-desired chaos, it may have the potential of destabilising South Africa...and that leads to some interesting questions: what does who stand to gain? who's really pulling their strings?

    If you look up the word "Stupidity" in the dictionary it says "see Malema"

  • Badballie - 2011-03-30 07:02

    "We known him from his days in Cosas and he is a well trained cadre of the revolution" P...L...E...A...S...E, very few of the "youth" shouting this communist drivel were even alive for their so called revolution. Once again we have the blind leading the deaf. On the up side the cANCer group seems to be tearing itself apart from inside, so hopefully there won't be to much left over to clean up. The only claim to revolution and struggle the cANCer group and their brown shirts have is for bombing woman and children

      Saamprater - 2011-03-30 07:11

      It reminds me of the Zim situation where 15-year old's are considered "war vets"

      paulf - 2011-03-30 08:01

      In my books a Youth League should not be political. I do not know why they mention the word revolution as there is no revolution unless they are planning something. Living in the Past I guess LOL.

  • eyrie - 2011-03-30 07:05

    what struggle-I thought they are in power? The ANC like to latch onto catch phrases and big words like cadre and ombudsman-and how is he a hero with the comments he made about women?

  • paulf - 2011-03-30 07:40

    The picture I get is that the ANC members do not Approve of certain members in Leadership. This and will cause a major Split within the ANC which is good news for SA as a whole.

      @Melly30, you stand a better chance of winning lotto than the DA becoming the ruling party in your lifetime. Dreaming is good as well but your dreams have to be achievable as well so you clearly need someone to pinch you from your reams that are so unreal. Given the 350 years of black people struggling it will take forever for a black person to put a white person in power in this country.

      Melly30 - 2011-03-30 10:35

      the man who - I dont care what colour runs this country...

      The-man-who - 2011-03-30 10:40

      @Melly30, it's easy for you to say given the history of our country. You did not need to carry a pass with you where evere you went due to the colour of your skin. Going to a beach that has the following "Slegs Net" or "Europeans only" in Africa and you really expect us the people who were sidelined for 350 years to suddenly echoe the same sentiments you are echoing? The reality is that a sensible black person who lived in hell (South Africa) will never ever in his/her lifetime vote for a white person.

  • Santapola - 2011-03-30 08:55

    @stephen, paul and other bunch of stupid critics i think you can go to your mum's and dad's and ask them about the level of their education before you insult my leader...Ok let me put this straight in ur kop...Malema represent majority of blacks and also represent minority of whites...Anyway to ut this short neah..ANC will rule till u become black or green

      Santapola - YOU THICK AS SH!T THEN TOO!! HE is a leaders ASSH*LE... You people are not fighting for freedom, we are all fighting against CORRUPTION - AGAINST YOUR THEIVING ANC WHO ARE ROBBING YOU BLIND, CANT YOU THINK FOR YOURSELF!!!!???? Guess not! There is no hope for you and when the ANC falls, you will be going down with them!

      Steen - 2011-03-30 09:25

      @Paulf its good that you have seen the light but dont enforce your light to others, they will see it for themselves just like you did.

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-30 09:43

      No. ANC will rule until all of their supporters die of famine or AIDS.

      Melly30 - 2011-03-30 09:48

      @steen, that is one of the smartest comments you have said, so there is hope for you, I just hope you see the light before it is too late! We are ONE NATION... This should be a country for all... Take care!

    What struggle???? You people are really thick as poo! Your fighting for FREEDOM IS OVER... Let me guess Malema's parties he throws the youth include free drinks, t-shirts, condoms, sex, pregnancy and the spreed of HIV... SICK FREAK!

    The fight for freedom is long over. The fight for economic freedom is only starting and up until our people are empowered this fight will never end. Why is it that when a black person does business with government is called a tenderprenuer? Who are we suppose to do business with given the fact that the minority who has economic power don't want to conduct business with us? Aluta Continua, lets contunie fighting for economic freedom in our life time cause the youth of yesterday fought for freedom and we are free

  • Kwapeng - 2011-03-30 11:48

    ...it is sad indeed when people start to see things through pigment of the skin. That is not what this country is about. juliARSE MALEma and his cronies have hijacked the party that did so much for the freedom of this country, so as to swell their pockets with money that's suppose to uplift many poor South Africans. I'm a black South African who is disappointed with the new vision of our government. I know many more people who voted for the ANC, share the same sentiments with me, so I hope they withhold their votes so that we can cull the might the ANC bring to the polls. It will never lose, but at least, it will never get the majority they so much abuse. As for juliARSE, the less said about him, the better cos he thrives under attention.

      paulf - 2011-03-30 12:43

      You hit the nail on it's head Kwapeng. Colour of the skin has nothing to do with anything. If we all can only hold hands together and vote with our heads and not our hearts, South Africa will be a better place for all. It is unfortunate thet the Zuma government keeps on playing the Race card which is now affecting the people. There is No White Party in South Africa. All parties are multi rational (Rainbow Nation).

    In incomprehensible situations I find that by analyzing the motivation for the actions one can explain most scenarios. Malema is out to get rich and he needs to stay relevant by being in the news. I hate him for all the goodwill we loose from trading partners as a result of his lunatic utterances. That is all.
