Malema will be found innocent - Mathale

2012-09-27 09:45

Johannesburg - Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale is adamant that the money-laundering charge against expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema will eventually be found to be false, SABC radio reported on Thursday.

"We are... happy with our friend who appeared [in court] and was given a charge which we believe over time... [he will appear in court for] and clear his name," he said.

"Analysts... analyse it [Malema's appearance] in a manner in which you can see anger. It is not influenced or guided by any other thing but the hatred of a man."

Mathale proclaimed his support for Malema during a fundraising event hosted by the Peter Mokaba region of the African National Congress in Limpopo on Wednesday night.

Malema was granted bail of R10 000 by the Polokwane Regional Court on Wednesday after being officially charged with money-laundering.

He proclaimed his innocence to supporters outside the court and insisted that the charge was part of a "politically motivated" plan to silence him.

      Wait and see...

      sean.carbutt - 2012-09-27 10:00

      Malema's brain is divided into 2 parts. Da left and da right. In da left, nothing is right, and in da right, nothing is left! Now we sit with a Dalema!

      vambozha.mutemi.9 - 2012-09-27 10:05

      i like it fo de prison, must always must find wrong by cort, Malema is alwys fo de steal money...i like it for de pirates

      sebenza.vanrooy - 2012-09-27 10:18

      If the man is found not guilty, I will adamantly want to see him in the upper ranks of the country. And then we will name him the warrior.

      tinotenda.panashe - 2012-09-27 10:23

      These are just cooked up charges

      peter.jefferies.90 - 2012-09-27 10:27

      @Sebenza, you can adamantly want to see him in any rank you want! Its not going to happen. By supporting Malema you support the down fall of South Africa. But just remember when he is found guilty and goes to jail you adamantly go and visit him there!! And you can adamantly feel like an idiot for supporting a criminal!

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-09-27 10:49

      What is Mathale is wrong? Will he drop his sage mentality? When Malema's IQ reaches 50 - sell.

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-09-27 11:03

      lol - don;t they see that this ONE CHARGE is only one of many that will be strung along time to keep this idiot in courts? trust me there are many more charges that he will encounter. They just want to keep him busy with stuff like this LOL

      george.slade.161 - 2012-09-27 11:07

      One is Enough ---Guilty as Charged --Mafia Idiot.

      freddie.miff - 2012-09-27 16:44

      What a rambling, incoherant pile of rubbish from Mathale, and he is supposed to be a provincial premier. Now we know how Zooma and Juju rose to prominence. With leaders of such low quality imagine how poor the rank and file are.

      peter.l.morris.3 - 2012-09-27 17:22

      Are you on the take as well

      krish.reddy.104 - 2012-09-27 21:30

      Theres more to come. Didnt you hear the Hawks ?

      russellblack.cowan - 2012-09-27 21:55

      he is corrupt as hell. Pity he was not chraged sooner And as for Premier of Limpopo , he should be fired for the text book fiasco. Mr. Premier spend more time governing and less time trying to ensure friends get contracts.

      alf.pop - 2012-09-28 07:38

      Did those sons of seafaring godmothers - in - law bribe somebody to make dockets disappear? Why else would this secondhand premier know that Moolema will be found innocent? Or arfe they hoping to convince the court that Moolema is pregnant?

      frangelico.paizes - 2012-12-31 14:18

      Lwai.Zibi.7 Please can you & your tribe open your eyes,Malema is no modern day Robin Hood,more like the Sheriff of Nottingham,if you have read the book seen the movie,you will know what I am trying to convey to you.Malema,Zuma etc etc etc,are criminals they steal from the poor to enrich themselves,none of this cANCer gives dilldly squat about you just accept it,vote for them again.Last week charges against MAL-ENEMA was 50 now it's three by the time he gets to court it will be zero.How can any lawabiding citizen think differently?Zuma got off, Shaik (on his death bed)is still playing golf,Selebi no news for awhile,Cele no feedback at all,so we won't hold our breath MAL-ENEMA will have all charges dropped and so the story will go on while these dithering idiots(cANCer)are still stealing from you.

  • Jellyarse - 2012-09-27 09:51

    Well Jacob - Time to start axing your Provincial Premier's when they talk like this..........

      citizen.kane.35 - 2012-09-27 09:56

      Let me guess the Premiers been working very hard behind the scenes to 'delete' evidence of her involvement in this sorry saga so that she can now come out and 'support' Mal-enema

      marni.van.emmenis - 2012-09-27 10:32

      @citizen.kane, Cassel is a guy. I think the reason why he is adamant that Juju is innocent, is because he hopes to use his defence when the Hawks start investigating all the scaly stuff Cassel does...

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-09-27 11:21

      @marni - lol spot on! But if you apply the same sentence to Ryha Piega (whatever her name is), you may not be so sure LOL

  • richard.bosmano - 2012-09-27 09:51

    malema will keep the cell warm for his mate mathale. he he he

  • cyril.laubscher - 2012-09-27 09:51

    Im sure he is right, this is typical of how things work. The case is delayed until after elections, one of his buddies is elected into leadership. Case dropped. Hope it doesnt turn out like that but sadly most cases do

  • JohncarlosBiza - 2012-09-27 09:51

    This guy is such a stereotypical African leader and it freaks me out seeing how far he got. He bankrupted his province with theft, mismanagement,nepotism and now wants his opinion to be above the country's laws

  • gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-09-27 09:53

    This is a case of "RATHER KEEP YOUR MOUTH CLOSED AND LET PEOPLE THINK YOU'RE A FOOL, THAN OPEN IT AND PROVE THEM CORRECT".

  • john.loveland.9 - 2012-09-27 09:53

    You just know if he goes down, he'll drag you with him. It takes two to tango... or to be corrupt.

  • gerhard.debruijn - 2012-09-27 09:55

    Well now. Does this genius know more about the law than the courts? Astounding.

      My thoughts exactly.

      morris.khunou - 2012-09-27 10:28

      Why is he so sure? i smell a rat. Who is handling the case?

      hermann.hanekom - 2012-09-27 10:54

      Matale read all the text books that went missing so he is now edjewcatid.

  • johannes.ramara - 2012-09-27 09:58

    Mr Matlala do not count your chickens before they are hatched. You are also in the same ship of pirates that hijacked money from Limpopo Government through dovious tenders. You are next to follow them to stand in front of the magistrate soon. Watch this space.

  • mavivi.ntshongwana - 2012-09-27 10:00

    It was expected Malema wont go down alone, the whole ANC will go down with him to mention you Mr Mathale

  • teddy.beer.319 - 2012-09-27 10:01

    I don't know from which end of his body Mathale is talking from, but this is not smelling good. He made Limpopo a basket case with his buddies and now wants that to spread to the whole country through the election of their stooges in Mangaung? I thought this country was going to the dogs, its actually going to tenderpreneurs. Dogs are surely mischaracterised here. These people are surely worse than dogs. For one to think that money laundering is a small crime ( and you are a leader) surely is a scary reality for the country.

  • smalefane - 2012-09-27 10:02

    Too early days to get excited about your friend Mr Mathale. More charges will be added. Watch this space. I'd also watch my back if I were you.

  • sthembiso.jali.58 - 2012-09-27 10:03

    im not supprised by Mathale's move, he is also involved.

  • reuben.thomas.58 - 2012-09-27 10:04

    Why are people scared of Malema????Lock him up and throw the keys away. Then this country will proper. Just set an example that the SA law is not scared of the Politicians.

  • sekwati.robinson - 2012-09-27 10:06

    who still listens to mathale after all the mess he and wife dearest put us in?....mathale in sepedi means wires...and we all know about crossed wires....as for malema and his followers,are they trying to tell us that 'certain people' should not be suspected and prosecuted.....

  • joe.blogs.98837399 - 2012-09-27 10:12

    Appoint People by Merit and not Party Loyalty and we will strike the death blow to corruption in this country. The End Affirmative Action in South Africa Campaign, is recruiting plaintiffs for a Class Action where we will challenge, in court, the sections and clauses pf our constitution that allow "Fair Discrimination" It is this cause, which makes Affirmative Action legal. We believe, with enough support, that we can make a very good case for having this clause repealed. We believe that there should be no Racial Discrimination AT ALL in South Africa and that people should be appointed on MERIT. Please visit our website www.endaffirmativeaction.co.za and add your name to the Plaintiffs, if you wish to join the Class Action and thus allow us to represent you, when we take this to court.

    What Malema owes in taxes already proves that he is in the wrong. Thw rest is for the courts to decide

  • jessica.main.501 - 2012-09-27 10:22

    i knew it will nothing happen to him , just like other criminals from government go free and carry on doing curruption, taking taxpayer money. i think i should get a job from government too, commit crime and nothing will happen, and i will get a big fat cheaque as well.

      Wow, worst grammar and spelling. An "a" in cheque?

  • erich.goosen - 2012-09-27 10:22

    When the first citizen of the Province makes statements like this, it can mean a few things. Firtsly that there have been tampered with the judiciary (which I think is unlikely) or that the first citizen is also implicated with the tenders and would at this early stage to emphasize his innocence. He is also having sleepless nights as Ms Madosela's investigation into the crooked tenders are nearing completion. The other nightmare that he faces is that there is no guarantee that old Father Zuma will be there after Manguabg to 'bail' him out.

  • mantothieve.missingman - 2012-09-27 10:23

    only when you interfere like you do with tenders

  • peter.jefferies.90 - 2012-09-27 10:24

    Wow, these ANC guys are great at Brown nosing!!! Malema must rot in jail it is where he belongs!! The fact that he is only being held on money laundering charges is a joke! He should also be tried for murder as he is responsible for a number of deaths in the country because of his hate speech and constant call for the poor to rise up and fight! How can anyone support someone who steals and has blood on his hands!!

  • heini.botes - 2012-09-27 10:50

    I think Malema has success with the masses because of the Marxist dialogue he initiates. Granted, he has virtually no idea what he's talking about nor the consequences thereof, but the rhetoric evokes a strong sense of unity and the promise that change is possible once the 'white capitalists' are ejected from their positions of economic power. Telling that to the poorest, most illiterate and unedu cated individuals of South Africa, he allows them to think that via revolution, economic freedom can be reached. It's a believable and sweet idea, that only two kinds of people can buy into: 1. The uneducated, illiterate, poor, naive, conspiratorial, idealistic and lazy. 2. The political idiot/politically retarded. Thankfully most, if not all of the ANC leaders comprise the latter- and I don't mean it sarcastically. If this government was actually able to act and enforce Marxist policies it would be the tragic end of South Africa. P.S: Don't make this a race issue, cause that would just piss me off

    @Cassel Mathale - So let me get this straight - he earns....er....earned somewhere between R25000 - R40000 a month and no other income - according to him, but he can afford to buy a range rover, a R3mill house, break it down and build a R16M one in it's place and you say he is innocent - holy crap - you are either completely in cahoots (very likely in fact beyond any doubt) or brain dead beyond the level of a grain of sand!

    It is clearly a tribal fight between the North and KZN. I am not sure who is going to win but the definate loser will be the country and it's people. Money spend in the courts could have build whole new villages with water, school and sanitasion. But this is a powerstruggle since 1994!!!
