Malema suspension 'a strategic move'

2012-04-04 15:03

Johannesburg - The immediate suspension of ANC Youth League president Julius Malema is a strategic move, political analyst Eusebius McKaiser said on Wednesday.

"I am not convinced that the top six [ANC officials] are showing unity," McKaiser said.

"The biggest point is that [Jacob] Zuma clearly wants a second term [as president] and wants to derail him [Malema]. This is an attempt to make it more difficult for ANC leaders to be seen with Julius Malema."

Malema and the ANCYL had continuously voiced their preference for Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe to replace Zuma and for Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula to replace Gwede Mantashe as the ANC's secretary general.

Re-election

McKaiser said it annoyed Zuma that Malema was backing Motlanthe.

"Zuma is trying to get a grip on his own re-election," he said.

It would now be more difficult for those such as Motlanthe, Mbalula and ANC treasurer general Mathews Phosa, who are all suspected to be strong allies of the youth league leader, to "benefit covertly" by being seen with Malema on a public platform.

The ANC's national disciplinary committee (NDC) on Wednesday announced that Malema's ANC's membership had been suspended with immediate effect.

This followed Malema's verbal attack on Zuma on Friday when he called him a dictator and said he was suppressing the ANCYL.

During a centenary lecture at Wits University on Friday, Malema said: "It is under President Zuma that we have seen the youth of the ANC being traumatised, being expelled from their own home.

"It is under President Zuma we have seen a critical voice being suppressed. We have seen under President Zuma, democracy being replaced with dictatorship," he said.

Expulsion appeal


Malema is appealing his expulsion from the ANC for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute. The appeals hearing takes place on April 12.

McKaiser said if the ANC's national disciplinary committee of appeal (NDCA) upheld Malema's expulsion, the new charge for last Friday's comments would become null and void.

"Why not just wait till next week? Well, by invoking a summary suspension they [the ANC] are able to prevent him from attending any meetings, from making statements and participating in Limpopo's provincial structures," said McKaiser.

"The ANC and top six are so fed up with him they want him immediately neutralised, and don't want to wait a week."

He said although the NDCA still had to confirm Malema's expulsion, it was like any other legal process - which meant new charges could be brought against the youth league leader.

      Only in the ANC can you be suspended whilst being suspended. These guys are an absolute rip snorting joke. They could not run a cheap brothel never mind a country. This is just political manoeuvring by a bunch of "bacon factories" at the taxpayer’s trough. Just thinking about the ANC makes me sick.

      for your information @LU, first of all yes i'm a zulu and proud of it, majority of black people in this country are zulus, i find it strange when you say you hardly see an educated zulu (lol), i wonder which tribe is more educated then, Malema is a hero of his dumpass people who are not civilised in Zimpopo, by the way google prominant zulu whoare educated, remember ANC was started by an educated zulu, Lindiwe Mazibuko is educated and your dumpass calls her a tea lady and you laugh, by the way that province has the most ugliest people in this country, i bet you are one of them...

      Kala - 2012-04-04 15:48

      I bet Lu is a troll

      Nigel - 2012-04-04 15:49

      @ Lu so you see this idiot Malema has even divided blacks not just the ANC, Because of Malema it became Blacks against farmers, then it was blacks against whites, then blacks against coloreds, then black against the "coolies, then ANC was fighting against ANCYL, now its Xhosas vs Zulus, next it is everybody against everybody, what this thug Malema has done is divide the nation, he has caused everybody to hate each other based on race, tribe, & political beliefs. & what for ?...for his own personal gain, his inflated ego, fed by his arrogance & ignorance, his lust for luxury. His actions are defined by his racist intolerance, his arrogance is only exceeded by his stupidity. Don't let this sheep in wolfs clothing fool you into hating others, don't be an indluvo.

      Andre - 2012-04-04 16:24

      Smell, you are totally wrong. Apartheid did deny Zuma an education. Many blacks who wanted to study, in fact became well qualifies. there were many teachers, doctors, lawyers, etc. who qualified in those years. Look at the situation today where many waste the opportunity to study and rather loaf or do politics in stead of studying!

      @Mark and @Thabang, i don't favour Zuma, infact i don't have a political party that i like but it is a fact that Malema is stupid and is causing divisions not only in the anc but to the country as well, he is not supreme but maybe to his pals @Thabang, one of the commentors said zulus are doom and stupid!i won't let that go without hitting back

      Thabang - 2012-04-04 17:29

      @Sboniswa, I still don't understand why you attacked one particular province because the person you are referring to did not highlight that they are from that province.

      Assegai - 2012-04-04 18:17

      @Thabang. Bro Limpopo is one of the VERY badly run provinces and the corruption (black & white) has been viewed on Carte Blanche in the past. It just seems as if the province can do with much better leadership. I think Sboniswa aptly renamed it Zimpopo because that is what they have become. There are no justifications for the manner in which they are blowing money in that province. R2.7 Billion gone and stolen?

      have you not realised yet that anc will stab ANYONE in the back to retain the power be corrupt. And dont think your malema wouldnt do the same. What SA lacks are true leaders in the sense that they are there to serve the people and not themselves.

      Assegai - 2012-04-04 15:24

      Totally agree with Frank and Lu, the only thing i respect about Zuma is that he got'game'- how else do you convince a woman to marry you, when you got soooooo many already. Then there's corruption, rape-showers, lack of education etc etc. Only in S.A can someone with those 'credentials' make it to the top office.

    Zuma did not orchestrate Malema’s rhetoric during the centenary celebration. Malema brought this unto himself. This so called political analyst is lazy to say the least. Malema has dug his own grave and therefore he is now fit to get inside it and rest. Malema, like we have always said, thought he was untouchable, he was bigger than the country, never mind the ANC.

No malema could say n do whatever he wanted about mbeki but not to him, da man is just a tribalist dictator hiding behind the toothless mantashe, whites didnt want zuma to come to power then coz they were afraid he might change things which mbeki failed to change, now that they see that zuma is doing nothing to lessen their grip on the economy n land, they fear the next leader might do that. Poor them they will live in fear for the rest of their lives here until a strong leader emergies n wrestle their grip from the land n learn that it doesnt kill anyone to share on the countries mineral resources n da land.

      You are a sensationalist without brains. You honestly believed that Malema was a solution for this country? Malema gets his pay from provoking emotions. He will never offer a solution for this country. He has said many contradicting statements in his time than any Leader in this planet. You can’t honestly tell me that you were expecting something from that idiot. Spell out economic freedom for me. Education is the key. Forget land grabs, forget mining. You have seen how he suddenly became a millionaire without lifting a hand. This is what’s going to happening if you don’t wake up. He will be filthy rich and you will remain an idiot.

    We should celebrate that Malema is not getting his way with the top six. If he does, he will be pulling strings from the side-line. Malema does not think because he has no brains. He says fermented things coming from his stomach. Who wants that for a king-maker? He will be making little Malemas all over the show.

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-04-04 16:03

    I thought he was already suspended and as such should not have been addressing any gatherings. It seems there was not a clear mandate of what he was permitted to do during his period of suspension. Addressing the public should not have been permitted!!

  • George - 2012-04-04 16:04

    The buffoon is using ANC rallies to attack its leaders. What should the ANC do? Wait another week? If the appeal is upheld he will still need to undergo a separate disciplinary process because this is a separate charge. So, Mckaiser is talking nonsense. Technically, malema is deliberately detonating a bomb attached to his waist. He lost touch with reality.

That is the Youth that accompanied the ANC in bringing it into power. They are the ones who held the last levels of fighting for freedom. The respecting Youth who in their struggle kept the meaning of the word "Adult" in mind.

      I would beg to differ quite considerably, there are youth in S.A, I was recently with an 19 year old boy from a middle class background who through educating himself on stock markets from the age of 13 managed to make himself 2.3mil investing with his fathers savings. But you never hear such stories they are cluttered up with stories of this nature. The youth have to be bold, not accept handouts, be entrepreneurial, thats what nakes leaders in this new south africa not bikerer that lacks innovation and gile

    Julius I'm with you all the way. A second term for Zuma will lead to an influx of foreigners from India, The Gupta's is keeping ol JZ busy with crap distracting him from his duties. JZ the people shall govern. Watch Malema shake Motlanthe's hand in Mangaung..... SABC prepare for JZ's official message of defeat.

    Maybe I've got it wrong but I assumed they were going to suspend him from the E-Toll gantries to encourage the rest of us to buy a tag!!

  • Zimbobwe - 2012-04-04 16:27

    Ahahahaaaaaa what did I say??? Tomorrow there will bve another 5 articles about this moron and as usuall people will be saying the same old same old rhetoric like the ANC!!!

  • Robert.Mjono - 2012-04-04 16:34

    Clearly I'm not going to vote the ANC if Zuma is going for the second term , I don't like dictatorship and I'm a youth Zuma don't like us as a youth so let him rule without my vote.. With Zuma we are going nowhere, the ANC have changed since Zuma is the President

      Mogomotsi - 2012-04-04 17:50

  • dale.granger - 2012-04-04 16:35

    showoowee, stop the press. So News24 had to go to some moronic rent a quote moron to tell us the bleeding obvious. No wonder Melama is destroying South Africa, with the help of the media.

  • bigboy.mothbi - 2012-04-04 16:42

    I think it's good of the ANC to expel him because he is unruly

  • Aaron - 2012-04-04 16:43

    Brilliant "strategic move" to suspend someone who was already suspended, um, wait no expelled... At least with a fresh suspension he can start a new round of appeals, so that while he's appealing his appeal on the appeal of his first suspension, he can start appealing his new suspension, in between appealing his expulsion... Should keep him going and the gutter press in news for another year at least. What a laughing stock. It's becoming an international embarrassment. This has exposed the current ANC regimes biggest weakness: utter indecisiveness.

  • Smash - 2012-04-04 16:46

    These political analyst analyse ka¤ at times. U can neva know what the next man is thinking especially crooks like politicians.

  • colin.langley - 2012-04-04 16:46

    The show aint over 'till the fatboy sings.....

  • Dennis Mwaba - 2012-04-04 16:49

    I dont know why its so difficult for some people to understand the difference between Thabo Mbeki situation to that of Zuma. Mbeki served his two terms the party gave him as its president then he started lobbying for a third one which could have had created two centers of power within the party had he won party president elections in polokwane. I dont need to go on writing about this press is there for references, Motlanthe should just help his boss win elections and wait patiently for his time to come. This boy Malema ll just compromise his integrity. Dennis.

  • Carry - 2012-04-04 16:53

    PLEASE GOD NO .......... NOT A SECOND TERM FOR ZOOMA.

      Cassandra Olivier - 2012-04-04 16:56

      Why? Not again. I also don't want Zuma has our president he is such a sexiest pig

  • Econwald - 2012-04-04 17:01

    No Zuma is an embarassment , our president should stick to his promise \ i just want to serve one time\ . Now the man has just tasted honey he changes his tune....

      Phillip - 2012-04-04 17:27

      Zuma must stick to his promise for one term

  • Ako - 2012-04-04 17:04

    Let me also remind you Mr Malema as a youth leader one is being prepared to be a leader or president of the country one and you not just an ANC youth or blacks only leader but you are a Whites,Indians and coloreds leader as well if starting now devidind the nation at this stage it means you won't make a good leader we are tired of racist and racism remarks we need a way forward. You are saying Zuma is dictator just go to the nearest mirror you'll see a dictator a racist a fat disfigured man who doesn't deserve to be a leader.

      Cassandra Olivier - 2012-04-04 17:09

      Malema and Zuma are the same sexiest pigs

  • Carry - 2012-04-04 17:06

    ZOOMA WILL LOOSE HIS POSITION JSUT LIKE HE GAINED IT ........ BY A BACKSTABBING COMRADE WHO DECIDES IT'S HIS TURN NOW TO BE IN THE PRESIDENT. IF IT WAS BECAUSE OF INADEQUACY ..... ZOOMA WOULD HAVE BEEN REPLACES A LONG TIME AGO - IN FACT, WITH HIS LEVEL OF EDUCATION, HE WOULD BE LUCKY TO BE THE MAIL PERSON.
