Mangaung will radicalise ANC - Malema

2011-11-20 22:01

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema warned that the ANC's national conference in Mangaung next year will radicalise the governing party.

"There is a groundswell of voices calling for change in the ANC with regards to the economy," Malema wrote in an article published in the Sunday World.

The article was published unedited and in full.

"Nationalisation of mines and expropriation of land without compensation will be policy outcomes," said Malema.

The party's new leadership would show signs of generational mix.

He said the African National Congress had thrived in difficult conditions for close to a century because it tolerated divergent views and perspectives, which were tested and adopted once there was consensus.

It seemed there was a temptation to erode this tradition, replacing it with intolerance and impatience, with older people across the political spectrum fearing change, said Malema.

"The South African racist society has somewhat influenced the older comrades to believe that what is today will be forever concerning the control and ownership of the economy," he said.

"Any voice that contradicts the status quo is vulgarised, banished, and treated with disdain because the interests of the ruling class are threatened."

    And so the radical left resurrect ... back to the Apartheid days we go

      Jeepers !! If your facts are correct I would suggest we get a whole herd(he is an animal, I think) of Malemas. Getting rid of 5 million useless unskilled people, Plus 800,000 in the same class of the population due to one dimwit might just save this beautiful, country of ours. @BA.. it's too good to be true.

    we all used to think that zuma keeps him around because malema has too much dirt on him. so when will he start singing? zuma might have done us all a favour by orchestrating malema's removal, but he's still the worst democracy president and must also go

    Well done Juju - keeping the Rand weak in spite of global economic meltdown. I have to wonder though, whether you can clean both ears with an earbud, from the same side. It seems rather empty between those ears!

      TamaraSays - 2011-11-20 23:50

      And for the record you fat little capitalist liar pig dog, it's not 'old people' who fear your brand of change - it's anyone with enough brains to be able to find their own butt without using both hands. Idiot.

    Julius may have the ANCYL vote, but he still needs to get the SACP and Cosatu on his side if he wants to see radical policy outcomes...An unlikely event to say the least...

    This is not about black/white. Also not about communism. Things will have to change. It must just be done according to a plan which is well managed, in the interests of South Africa. I just don't think the ANC has the capacity to manage this change. http://www.fin24.com/Companies/Mining/Aurora-sold-gold-and-kept-proceeds-20111120

      Refilwe IronMan Rakoma - 2011-11-21 01:32

      Your right about things having to change and it not being about communism. In most first world countries a foreigner cannot own majority stake in companies founded on their natural resources why should we agree to being ripped off and dictated to on our own national property. I disagree on the point you made about the ANC not having the capacity, the track record of the party should show you that we have created more meaningful jobs (not like the jobs of the old day where our farthers had to call children Klein-Baas) we reconcilled this country, thats why misfits like Malema can be told that they are not do not belong in the party, and for the record nether does Zuma, he has done his job by removing the monster he created and we will replace him with a Thabo Mbeki like man who by the way (mbeki) has brought more investment to the country than the old regime ever could, the difference is that our government style is for all the people in south africa and not based on race. Its proven anyone, rich or poor, black or white can make it in this country because of the climate the ANC has created. Now you and I know that in every convent school in the world their will always be a group of bad apples, in every government, private company and NGO. And the newspaper are not the court of law and they are not the voice for whats right and wrong, is it their business to sell newspapers and advertising space, are they held to a code of ethics like the ones that prevent doctors from taking advantage of your fear for death and disease? They are not, they use fear and propaganda to sell you baseless conspiracy because you are the buying power, and right know in the recession climate that we are in thats the strategy they chose to adopt to sell papers. I have visited the offices of the business times they look like an orphanage, I haven seek FM but I heard a rumour from a seasoned journalist that if there numbers dont increase heads are going to roll. They are all like julius by the way the try to profit from peoples fears and pain.

      Heinrich - 2011-11-21 06:40

      Refilwe IronMan Rakoma : Why I say the ANC does not have the capacity to manage the necessary change: See link insert story. This is the mentality that prevails, is tolerated, and even encouraged, within the ANC. There are hundreds of other examples indicating lack of foresight, lack of planning, lack of discipline, lack of ethics, lack of morality,lack of empathy,positive negligence, arrogance, nepotism and corruption that are proven. The fact that the ANC took action against Malema is just part of their little power game. It has nothing to do with the interests of the people of South Africa.

      Hans - 2011-11-21 07:48

      @Heinrich - Aurora is not owned by the government. It is a privately owned mine whose owners happen to be ANC supporters and related to ANC bigwigs.But I do understand your fear. If you look at Eskom, SABC, SAA, Education, Health Care etc, they have failed us miserably with very bad mismanagement. They have heaped huge debt on these companies and in the case of Eskom, they nearly crippled this country.I really do hope that they have learnt from these mistakes, but I am not holding my breath.

    There is no need for a 'radicalised' government in South Africa. Most people will happily settle for a competent one that does its job properly: education, jobs, food, clean water + sanitation, medicines and security from criminals is what this country needs. If we can get that right then we are well on the right track. So far I've seen very little of that. I drink from rainwater tanks because the tap water quality is so bad that if i water plants with it they die. I have burglar bars on every possible entrance, high fences and alarms because there are no jobs and people feel the need to steal to survive (although i've never had food stolen... go figure). I have an old TV and no DSTV because all the money that would go towards that needs to go towards my medical aid due to the state hospitals being so bad that nobody in government even uses them. What would SA give for a competent government.

      Refilwe IronMan Rakoma - 2011-11-21 01:02

      Shame dude you sound like an honest guy, its tough for all of us. See we have a situation in our country where the previous government we had did not care about educating and providing decent jobs for black people, imagine trying to ask you house maid or gardener to help you with your home work or trying to study but there is no food on the table. This is black reality my brother and fixing mistakes of the past will take three generations or more, and the crime I know its bad, be patient with us the SAPS is only about 16 years old they still have a long way to go, and the old police force we had was a terrorist killing machine, but it was them and not you so we love you, we are brothers now, news24 and the mail and guardian are people with agendas who want to use good people like you for their own interests, ask any of those journalists where they where when our people where being slaughtered? They where not telling you the truth they where feeding you the same lies that they are feeding you know. They said black people will kill you, did we? We just kicked that fat tard to the curb for undermining the principles of our democracy and trying to sow division between white and black people, thats the hidden agenda he is crying about, he is sticking to old believes out of his agenda and news24 sells you this garbage to sell their site, and make sure that every morning you pick up one of their papers. There is no goodwill its a recession sales men are aggressive, they need your money to survive. They sit in a board room and come up with a new strategy on what type of stories will sell their paper, and its unfortunate because white people are the buying power. Look at the occupy wall street guys they are saying down with the media because they know that the media of today fights for corporate agendas. Open your eyes, engage with real people, dont let them get in between you and me because one day their going to take it too far like undermining Mac Maharaj who is my hero, he helped Mandela write long walk to freedom he even smuggled the book out of Robben Island, he fought for white people to remain apart of his country and for that misfits like julius call him a traitor to the cause, evil outdated draconian plans. Yet the mail and guardian tries to destroy the mans integrity and white people comment and call him a criminal. If you where Mac and I read those comments by people you where tryin to defend how would you feel? They dont even give you the benefit of the doubt your association automatically makes you guilty. Wow man wow, I cant believe some of the people in this country man we have worked tirelessly to bring you things like the 95 rugby world cup, the truth and reconciliation commission, the FIFA world cup, you have constitutional rights, we have forgiven a nation that treated us less than human, but we are still good for nothing, worthless, incompetent, slimy dogs in the eyes of most white people.

      Refilwe IronMan Rakoma : It is obvious that most ANC "Comrades" did what they did to enrich themselves and their party and to hide the facts as best they can. Now they even want to do it through legislation! That is why the media is onto them. "I did not join the struggle to be poor" Since 1994: Show me one "Comrade" who did something for the People of South Africa, without taking a huge chunk of cash in the process. Come on. Just one.

      Hans - 2011-11-21 07:56

      The old governement was just as bad when it came to tender rigging, how many non-whites could tender for government jobs?The problem today is that the current government has their hands stuck in loads of wealth and no idea what to do with it. They steal from it enriching themsleves and their families. this is where the difference between the old and the new lies. The old government made sure Whites did not suffer, to hell with the rest.The ANC are say to hell with everybody,including their own.I really wish that the old government had at least given the Blacks a decent education, then we would not be sitting with this problem today.

      Smell - 2011-11-21 03:29

      I guess that would be one way of compelling the millions of Zimbabwean economic refugees in RSA to flee back to Zimbabwe. If land seizures and nationalization are so good for the people, why did the Zimbabwean economy implode after Mugabe went "Afrocentric". And where will the South African population flee to when our economy totally collapses? Do we really have that many mentally challenged people in this country? I never thought the day would come where I would regard the communists (Mantashe) and the unions (Vavi) more reasonable than the uneducated belligerent tail that now wishes to wag the dog.

      Albert - 2011-11-21 08:45

    Are they whites who made to still in the name of the poor. Nationalisation and land are no picnic and they are not good as they sound. I wonder SA still want to experiment what failed elsewhere in Africa, eg. Zambia. Natioalisation is the other strategy for politicians to lay their dirty filthy hands on minerals. Under the intoxication of China the mines in SA are going to be death traps. Chinese are nothing but just colonisers of the postmodern era.

    From a prideless self serving shambles, to a radical self serving shambles - not much to look forward to with this lot. Imagine if they spent some time trying to govern the country instead of jockeying for self gain amongst one another all the time. We could have been living in a great country by now. They really are a revolting bunch.

  • Victor - 2011-11-21 08:31

    Malema, u and your followers are a very small minority and not even a factor. Nobody but idiots think nationalisation will curb poverty. The theft of a billion rand per year, the unions and land grabs already proved to be negative for any country. Education is the only way forward. And that's a fact.

  • Joanita - 2011-11-21 08:33

    "Nationalisation of mines and expropriation of land without compensation will be policy outcomes," said Malema. - The government "nationalised" companies such as eskom, SABC, Our schooling system, health care systems and many more, are clearly not good enough examples of dismal failure with this nationalised concept? Has this dimwit, exhausted all financial gain with tender rigging in the above sectors, that he now focuses solely on the mines?

  • Joanita - 2011-11-21 08:36

    Also, why is he allowed to even speak on behalf of whichever party, if he is suspended? surely this is showing utter disregard for the mother party? making a true mockery of any so called discipline and/or authority the ANC has. Which part of "vacate your post" did you not understand fatboy?

  • norman.buchalter - 2011-11-21 08:41

    Malema may have a point, but his way of going about it has been proven wrong throughout failed Communist countries. He is afforded so much coverage by the press that they have turned him into a demi -god rather than another ignorant youth, who has his fingers in the cookie jar for a long time already and hopes to for a long time to come. Press complains about the New Info Bill, but has created its own monster in Malema and his kind. The hope that it would cause a rift in the ANC will still have to be seen to be believed come Mangaung. meantime, the legal eagles fight it out and the better lawyer/shrewder party will win. What will the ANC do if malema wins his appeal? A flight to his corner to protect their future gravy train benefits? When a country is ruled by those who favour self enrichment, it is no longer a democracy. An autocracy is in place that may just change a few faces, but is an autocracy nonetheless, and the people will still suffer.

  • Joanita - 2011-11-21 08:44

    "The South African racist society has somewhat influenced the older comrades to believe that what is today will be forever concerning the control and ownership of the economy," he said. - AGAIN out comes the race card, only this time, its his own race that told him to f/off... how can that remotely be linked to black vs white? such an old excuse, he uses, only this time its a god damned joke! The statement should rather read, "The Intellectual, sane of mind citizens with an IQ above that of a loaf of bread South African society, has educated the older comrades to see the BS I spew and that it is not beneficial to ANY person other than myself and my sheep like followers, concerning the control and ownership of the economy,"

  • Joanita - 2011-11-21 09:00

    "Any voice that contradicts the status quo is vulgarised, banished, and treated with disdain because the interests of the ruling class are threatened." Considering you were told to shut up and go away by the ANC, I have to assume this is an onslaught directly on the the 'ruling class', being the ANC?

      Joanita - 2011-11-21 09:02

      AND, 'vulgarides, banished and treated with disdain"... cry us a river, you big jessie! You don't deserve any other treatment, other than the above!
