Marches will bring back dignity - Malema

2011-10-19 16:38

Johannesburg - Marching to the Union Buildings in Pretoria will ensure that residents of Thembelihle, in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, would finally find dignity, ANCYL leader Julius Malema said on Wednesday.

"We need to tell the government that we want to be treated with respect. We need to bring back the dignity of black people, especially Africans," he said.

Over 600 residents gathered to hear Malema speak ahead of planned marches for economic freedom in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

"If we want to be beautiful we need to make sure there is food on our table. We will fight until we have that food," Malema said.

"Community leaders are telling us to never sell out our own people. We are going to march and if there is no answer we will not stop, we will not leave you [government] alone."

He said the residents should march to Pretoria along the M1 highway.

Malema ended his address by leading the crowd in an alternate rendition of dubula ibunu [kill the boer] called "kiss the boer" before pointing his finger at the crowd and mimicking the sounds of gunfire.

Many residents were in agreement with Malema.

"This [the march] is a good thing. We spent too many years in shacks. If there is no salt, we will fight until we get salt," an unnamed resident said.

Other residents said Malema was "talking nonsense".

"We are human beings. Kill the boer is not for us. We just want electricity and service delivery. This Julius is talking nonsense," Eric Mdluli said.

The Economic Freedom Youth Mass Action is to be held on October 27 and 28 at Beyers Naude square in central Johannesburg, the Chamber of Mines in Hollard street in Johannesburg, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in Sandton and at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, where a night vigil is planned.

    Do us a favor Malema and March the ANCYL off a cliff!! Lead by example!

      Jason - 2011-10-19 17:19

      there is a brown train in my A.N.U.S. called malema ....

      Thandiwe - 2011-10-19 17:26

      Please stop all this nonsense Juju. Why not set up a company to compete with mine?! You are full of hate - I am ashamed to have voted ANC thanks to your hateful, anti-Mandela, anti-white, anti-wealth creation, anti-jobs, anti-humanity utterances.

      Thandiwe - 2011-10-19 17:33

      Well said Eric Mdluli - he talks nonsense.

      Jack - 2011-10-19 17:33

      "We need to bring back the dignity of black people, especially Africans" Ok, call me stupid...but since when is black not African?

      Thandiwe - 2011-10-19 17:41

      I know metallurgy is not your strength Malema, but you can have an apprenticeship in my company, making seals, if you give up your nonsense. I would be the boss (which you would struggle with as I am younger than you, a lady, and have two degrees), and you would learn skills and contribute to my small business. Alas - you would not get through the interview, nor would you want the job, and anyway COSATU are against a youth wage subsidy - a subsidy I could do with to create 5 apprenticeships in my company that currently only employs 5 people.

      Herman - 2011-10-19 17:46

      If he (Malema) wants to march, he can go kick that block (that keeps the tokolosh away) out from under his bed post and march around that...

      SimnikiweNtingi - 2011-10-19 17:54

      Long walk to dignity

      Dwerg - 2011-10-20 08:30

      The shame of it all is,he spends a day "marching" in his armored convoy. Talks crap for a few hours, sings a song and PR is done. His followers will spend a whole day fighting for salt, forego a days pay/leave and return to nothing else than the same old crap.

      Rietha - 2011-10-20 09:32

      Funny thing is Julias, no matter how wayward you are in life, just because you are somehow part of the government set-up - do no fret, one day when you're gone, they'll name a street after you or put up a statue, but pay homage to you they will. It's the strangest thing.

  • Deon - 2011-10-19 16:45

    Rather work for dignity and services not fight nor March.

  • Johan - 2011-10-19 16:45

    ...Woodwork Malema is a danger to society... ...he must be locked up .... ....and the key must be thrown away...

  • Bryan - 2011-10-19 16:48

    There is no end to the amount of crap that comes out of your mouth Malema!!!

  • Brad.Kopping - 2011-10-19 16:48

    "We need to tell the government that we want to be treated with respect. We need to bring back the dignity of black people, especially Africans," he said. Oh great, what about the homeless coloured and white people heh?

      craigtjames - 2011-10-19 17:04

      Actually, can somebody explain the difference between black people and African people. And who in the world gets their dignity back by marching. Dignity is in your soul, it cannot be taken or cannot be given. Mandela was sitting in a prison for 27 years, and he never lost his dignity. Sjoe, can somebody take Malema's voice away. The man suffers from verbal diarrhea - there is only one thing which comes out of his mouth!!!

      Vic - 2011-10-19 17:47

      Oh, I forgot, Chinese are also black [BEE, AA...] but they're not Africans, ne?

  • Iwan - 2011-10-19 16:48

    "We need to bring back the dignity of black people, especially Africans," he said". Wait what, shouldn't it be. "We need to bring back the dignity of Africans, especially black people"

      Zulu - 2011-10-19 17:01

      Iwan, you are right! He appears to often confuses those around him.

      craigtjames - 2011-10-19 18:00

      Zulu, he confuses himself......

  • mastersvoice - 2011-10-19 16:49

    I would rather suggest they all march to Malema's house in Sandton. Then he can tell them all what sacrifices he had to make in order to look beautiful. He can read some more quotes from Ghandi to them while they all stare with wonder and amazement at his riches. Then he can ask them all to leave quietly, because he will no doubt want to lie down and rest a little after all the excitement.

  • Alva - 2011-10-19 16:49

    Motormouth at it again. Spewing forth garbage. Eric Mdluli, one of many who is seeing through the ANCYL BS.

    Wonder if its going to be a strogoool to lift his lazy arse

  • DuToitCoetzee - 2011-10-19 16:56

    Leave Malema. I found a way how to get rid of my dept. I am going to ask him to give me a million rand and than I am going to pay the bank. When he nationalize the bank he gets his money back. Do you not think it is a good idea. I am sure he will fall for it. Now just to get his phone number....... LOL!!!!

      Iwan - 2011-10-19 17:00

      I like.....get that number and share. I need a new car, and maybe a holiday house, and Christmas is around the corner.

      DuToitCoetzee - 2011-10-19 18:05

      Aikona. You now become greedy. You must 1st make the dept with the bank and than the deal will work. The bank is anyway going to loose. Why than not in my favor. Please do not tell Thandiwe.(comment above) She seems to be a kwaai baas. She even want to sort Malema, our solution, out. Just now she pimp on us.LOL!!!!

  • Aaron - 2011-10-19 16:58

  • Marcus - 2011-10-19 17:04

    "Malema, your my hero! I wish more people will follow you... I wish more people will share your vision, you rock buddy!" - The dumb, blind and stupid.

  • Larry - 2011-10-19 17:04

    The Marches that I have seen on the news would not bring dignity to a war zone. The looting, throwing Garbage around and destroying property is all I have seen. Whats this clown on about? or is this his idea of dignity?

  • Jason - 2011-10-19 17:07

    Crowd of 600 - Is that it Juju, yoh rent a crowd gets expenseef neh!! hah hah your days are over my man!! Kiss the boer,the only thing you'll ever kiss of a boer is some knuckle sandwiches.. Please march on the M1 Highway maybe we get some Taxi Drivers to have fualty brakes and steering wheels!! TWAT..

  • Garth - 2011-10-19 17:11

    `. . . We need to bring back the dignity of black people, especially Africans,"' This is one confused, small-minded, fat-bodied racist. `. . . if there is no answer we will not stop, we will not leave you [government] alone."'I think that they removed his second last brain cell when he was hospitalised recently. No wonder the anc and their kindergarten do not know what is going on all of the time - they have leaders such as this `bag of rocks'. This fool does not know that the anc is the government!

  • Victor - 2011-10-19 17:15

    Ya, hopefully you pay the R100 billion back you and your ANC counterparts borrow per annum from the tax payer. And by the way, a dog got dignity, not idiots

  • David - 2011-10-19 17:15

    Another pearl of wisdom from the genius.

  • Ivan - 2011-10-19 17:15

    Dear Julius. Here is a lesson in human development. Dignity is first found within oneself. The government cannot give it to you. If you respect yourself first you would not want to look to others for your own dignity. Furthermore, respect is earned. If you want your government to respect you. Then let your leaders that you elected, LEAD you. There are reasons why they do not do certain things that you so much want and need when YOU want it. They want you to bring YOUR part as well. And not sit on your ass waiting for the government to make things happen for YOU. Do NOT burn down other peoples assets, respect it. Do NOT steal if you are hungry, work for it. Do not rape if you have lust, enter into a ONE-person relationship. Do NOT listen to gullible politicians whom only want peoples votes to fill their personal pockets, study the politics of the day and the rule of law, your constitution as well, and understand why certain decisions are made. Develope yourself, teach yourself, enter into structural positive debate, rather to follow millions of ignorant people like yourself. Don't use peoples ignorance to enhance your own political and personal gains. You are only busy creating unreasonable expectations. That same people is going to stab you in the back. March for leaders of excellence rather than economic freedom. The latter you only find in hard work. Something we all have to do.

      Servaas - 2011-10-19 17:40

      Ivan: I think you need to draw malema a picture.. he will not be able to comprehend your letter.

      hadedah - 2011-10-21 15:14

      Well said Ivan if he can read perhaps he will digest your wisdom and put it into practice.

  • Barend - 2011-10-19 17:20

    "If we want to be beautiful we need to make sure there is food on our table. We will fight until we have that food," Malema said. Where does this guy get his sayings?? He should invest in a local translator so that everyone can understand what this nut is saying.

  • Brett - 2011-10-19 17:23

    These comments were a lot more entertaining to read than what Juju had to say. Relax people, relax! Only 600 at his gathering? Somebody better start a collection because I think ABSA will soon repo that expensive house in Sandown.

      Anthony - 2011-10-19 17:58

      hi brett--you make a good point --as much as this idiot spurns all the crap--as much as he sings the insulting songs --as much as he is racist ==HE IS LOOSING HIS FOLLOWEERS AND BECOMING PART OT THE LUNATIC FRINGE if he was cleaver[inteligent] he could be a very powerful force for change [[sadly negative in view of his twisted psyci]] the writing is on the wall --EVERYDAY he looses more followers --even uneduacated and unemployed are starting to turn away from this ''garbage''

      Brett - 2011-10-19 18:10

      Absolutely Anthony. None of the "new" elite are going give up their 760 BMW's and allow this moron to turn this into another Zimbabwe. They just LOVE the high life!

  • Dalai - 2011-10-19 17:24

  • anthony.swart - 2011-10-19 17:37

    Go work you uneducated slobs, stay in school, get an education and be an asset to the country. Malema your teaching of destruction for gain is criminal. Go live in a shack and give your wealth to your supporters then maybe we will believe you. Stop using the poor to push your political agendas you leech on society.

  • Jason - 2011-10-19 17:42

    Can someone please tell JUJU that his @ss is jealous of the amount of crap coming out of his mouth.

  • Mike - 2011-10-19 17:49

    "If we want to be beautiful we need to make sure there is food on our table. We will fight until we have that food," Malema said. You know what it's like to have no food, do you, fat boy.? The poor people of this nation will recover their sense of dignity when their elected leaders start DOING and not just TALKING.

  • ec.van.niekerk - 2011-10-19 17:52

    hahahahaha this is so funny. . .. love the comments.... in total agreement to all of them

  • Harry - 2011-10-19 18:00

    Very bad sensational reporting. The facts according to the article are: 600 people came to hear him. Many were in agreement and others were not. It does not say what faction was the majority - why?. Clearly, Malema is now losing his appeal on the ground. Malema articles try and shock us into reading them. I guess I also am a sucker for them. The reality is that it is bad business for news sites/papers if Malema stops appealing to the masses. This article is really a waste and tells us nothing, yet we still read it.

      Brett - 2011-10-19 18:25

    “Julius! Julius! Julius! For a darkness shall come upon you and you shall not see, yes being blind for a time, for I shall touch you by My power. You have defied and been defiant, you who have resisted and been rebellious, you who have desired to bring destruction to this nation. Destruction shall not come to this nation, no! For I shall strike the destroyer down on behalf of My righteous ones in this land,” says the Lord, “And know this one thing, that I will remove you, I shall do it speedily and quickly.” And thus sayeth the Lord, “Julius, you must repent, and if you shall repent,” says God, “I shall have mercy upon you, and I shall be gracious to you. For what is this I see? One, one in your history. One from your forefathers who was a Christian, who prayed, a grandmother Julius? A grandmother, a great grandmother that prayed for you! Why do you resist Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads. For I shall meet with you and I shall encounter you, but I will first bring you to a low place just like I did with Jacob, I shall bring you to a hard, lonely place. There you shall discover Me. But your defiance shall be stifled and shut up and the destroyer that wanted to use you to destroy you, even you and this nation, shall not have his way. For I say, South Africa, this nation is My nation! This land is My land!

Oh yes, someone find this Eric Mdluli chap and give him a Bell's. Or a position in government.

    This will be last post in this forum. I feel that this incident should not go unpunished, M may have sung kiss the boer but mimicking a machine gun afterwards makes a mockery of the court ruling and undermines the rule of law and justice in general. My only wish is that the case does get taken to the Hague and that he be found guilty there along with all of those who sang the song since the ruling and even adapted it with kill the white. South Africans unfortunately are lax when it comes to fighting injustice. We will complain but we will never do something about it. I praise institutions like Afri-forum and the public protector who fight on our behalf. Only time will tell of their efforts are in vein or if some of us will become refugees.

  • Carol - 2011-10-20 08:18

    the only way to get your dignity back is to get off your fat behind and work for it - it cannot be begged for, marched for or demanded. How come some people can sit on the pavement and sell something they have bought or made rather than beg? thats dignity - taking,marching, putting your hands out to be filled, or demanding - thats uselessness!

POWER... What we see now is exactly a copy of Zimbabwe... and look what happend to that country... MALEMA... there is a BIG Difference between fighting for a RACE and fighting for FREEDOM... He says that the country should be give back to africans... well... guess what... I WAS BORN HERE!!! IM A AFRICAN... anyways... turned out to be more than just a question.. just my thoughts... a change of mind is all it takes... =)
