Malema's hometown quiet after expulsion

2012-04-25 07:31

Polokwane - Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's hometown Seshego in Limpopo was quiet on Wednesday, following the confirmation of his expulsion from the ANC.

"Nothing happened, it was quiet, we have our crime prevention unit monitoring the area," said Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

In February, clashes broke out between Malema's security staff and an anti-Malema group outside his grandmother's home in Seshego, when the National Disciplinary Committee (NDC) announced his expulsion from the party.

But on Tuesday night, after the National Disciplinary Committee of Appeal (NDCA) announced his expulsion, the streets of Seshego were quiet, with no sign of celebrations or protests.

Malema was originally suspended for five years for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute.

He was found to have done so by unfavourably comparing the leadership style of President Jacob Zuma to that of former president Thabo Mbeki, and for remarks on bringing about regime change in Botswana.

He unsuccessfully appealed, but was granted leave to present evidence in mitigation to the NDC. However, on February 29 it announced that the sanction against him had been changed to an expulsion.

He again appealed and it was this appeal that the NDCA dismissed on Tuesday.

      What better chance to create turmoil and devide in the tripartheid alliance, than Malema. Think, think, think.

      Jacobus - 2012-04-25 07:44

      No need to win them (ANC) at the polls... just watch them self-destruct. But for that you need a Perfect Julius, ... and Malema is just the man for the job.

      Pack up all my care and woe, Here I go, Singing low, Bye bye blackbird, Where somebody waits for me, Sugar's sweet, so is she, Bye bye Blackbird! No one here can love or understand me, Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me, Make my bed and light the light, I'll be home late tonight, Blackbird bye bye.

      The Malema saga has highlighted how weak the ANC management system really is. He has already been promised a return to the party on certain conditions. Won't they ever learn that he is not going to change. Don't they have the will to settle a problem as soon as it raises it's head!

  • Shayne - 2012-04-25 07:53

    You can't help but wonder where he would be now if he had of just towed the line and kept below the radar. I am glad that this happened now and not when he was SA President. Imagine the havoc he would have caused then? Let this be a lesson to all politicians. You are not in your position to run your mouth and cause unrest. You are there to SERVE us, the ppl that put you in power! \r\n\r\nAnd remember this very carefully.\r\n\r\nPeople do not need to fear their government, but a government must fear its ppl.

  • Phumi - 2012-04-25 08:03

    I guess your sponsored celebrations failed! What were you expecting? Malema is the least of our peoples worries and couldnt be bothered about decisions taken by kangaroo institutions. The Branches are busy engaging on policy discussion documents and the issue of land and economic justice is gaining more momentum. People are even more energised now more than ever to remove those who do no implement the resolutions of the conferences! Those who are rejoicing now their victory will be short-lived! One thing I know is that come Mangaung there are no ANC self appointed top six or NEC it is the branches that decide. Our history tells us that those who refuse to implement the resolutions of the ANC are the ones who will end up in the dustbin of history! One question you should ask yourself is what is in the President and SG's report back at the conference on the progress of the resolutions taken by the people!

      Vusi - 2012-04-25 09:57

      I think u guys the ANC u are missing the point u take things personal in politics u use ideas, I agree President of the country was a mistake, but we are having a problem of not understanding the words we are using. During CODESA in the early 90's ideas got us a chance 2 vote but AWB tried 2 intervene with no success,2 make u understand what I mean Kunene Brothers manage 2 have a successful Coca Cola business using ideas. If ANCYL marched to offices of NEDLAC to complain about economic freedom then it will make sense. I believe there are platforms for ANCYL to voice out there concerns within the ANC. Why do they wash ANC dirt dishes in the public or is a technique to bluff an ordinary man on the street. From my point of view nationalisation will never work is SA.I believe if u want 2 win any battle u must study ur opponent's weaknesses.And the rest is history.
