More punches for Zuma

2012-01-06 14:40

Thaba Nchu - Thaba Nchu youths sang songs mocking President Jacob Zuma on Friday, calling him the "shower man" as they waited for suspended ANC Youth League president Julius Malema to arrive.

Some youth league leaders, including suspended secretary Sindiso Magaqa, first formed a circle and then led the crowd in song.

"Malema re rapedise rea e sokolela. Shawara ya re sokodisa," they sang in Sotho as residents gathered to hear Malema speak at Moroka High School.

The words translate as: "Malema pray for us we are suffering. The shower is giving us problems."

This was the same song sung by a group supporting Malema's close ally and ANC Limpopo chairperson Cassel Mathale. He retained the post by a small margin at the party's provincial conference in Polokwane in December last year.

As in Limpopo, where the "shower man" song debuted, the Free State youth accompanied it with a gesture over their heads symbolising a shower. This was a reference to Zuma's rape trial in 2006, during which he said he took a shower after having unprotected sex with an HIV-positive woman.

Another song was in praise of ANC national executive member and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula. The youth league wanted him to replace ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe at the party's elective conference in Bloemfontein in December.

"Thina sifuna uMbalula [We want Mbalula]," they sang.

Malema held his first "mini-rally" in Welkom on Thursday.

The rallies are convened as part of the celebrations of the ANC’s centenary celebrations.

However, Malema would not have an opportunity to speak at the main event of the centenary celebrations on Sunday.

    Cant help but enjoy these moments. The chickens are coming home to roost - pull out the popcorn this weekend is going to be a doozie! If his personal life is anything to go about Zuma is prob the only one playing golf because he has claimed all the holes.

      Total disrespect of their elders, I feel for JayZee.

      Bardy - 2012-01-06 15:39

      I am laughing out really freakin loud at the moment! This government must be the biggest joke humanity has ever seen! Banana republic at its best!!! Bwahahahaha!

      Irene - 2012-01-06 16:09

      Sky ~ It's not just disrespect for JZ, they have no respect for anything or anyone!

      wesleywt - 2012-01-06 16:22

      @Sky Zuma choose to align himself to these idiots. Now he has to pay the price.

      Bloody-Agent - 2012-01-06 16:42

      The ANC youth league are all a bunch of hypocrites. If it wasn't for the media making fun of Zuma they would probably still be firm believers of the shower theory! They must have seen one of Zapiro's pictures since most of them probably can't read.

      frangelico - 2012-01-06 16:45

      @Newsmonger,Mr Zuma deserves all this ridicule,he has not been a good example,to young & old he has shown his lack of morals & leadership. At the same time those who are now calling for Fatboy Lardass to come to their rescue deserve what him with all his sh*t by the ton.

      Squeegee - 2012-01-06 17:07

      Can we record the song, put it out on CD and feed the poor with the procedes?

      Walter - 2012-01-06 18:02

      Said Malema: "Hi Stortkop!". "Put your dummy back in your mounth Puttikop", replied Zuma. But JZ is not a good example of a parent, father figure or anything, so Malema just continues his ways since there is no proper example to conduct politics and public service by.

      I have now got a box of Benzene for the Virodene Awards of 2011: The nominees are: Thabo Mbeki Doctor ( of medicine ) Nkosazana Zuma ( the 2 were the big pushers of the attempt to Genocide 5 million aids sufferers with Benzene labelled as Virodene - which is now their prize! ) Pres Zuma Julius Malema ( acomplices ) David Miliband ( cover up ) Barack Obama Hilary Silly Hilly Billy Clinton Bill the Clown Clinton ( Financiers of Abortions ) Jullian Assenge ( the Genocide of Millions of SA People is not important to him - a few Iraqui casualties are : arab bloob is more important than african blood ) Ariel Adorfmann ( the mentally challenged does not understand that if Mandela was aquitted in his trial of treason because he does not owe allegiance, neither does SA owe benefits to him and his people ) Fidel Castro and Raul Castro ( for the Genocide of the Cuban and African People, particularly 1 500 000 Ethiopians and 500 000 Angolans ) And the Manpara Virodene Award for 2011 goes to... Julius Malema! For doing his utmost to expose the truth about the ANC!

      @Sky - What if the elders choose to disrespect the constitution? and the law?

  • AyGeewils - 2012-01-06 14:52

    Oh my my ... is this for real?

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-01-06 14:57

      nope they (news24) thought if they published a "non-for-real" article they would get you to ask that question.... guess the were right...

      AyGeewils - 2012-01-06 15:47

      My comment refers to the infintile behavour of 'grown-up' politicians not the reportage.

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-01-06 15:47

      come on where is the humor????

  • StarStruck - 2012-01-06 14:53

    Don't sh@t where you eat comes to mind then hearing the ANC in the news. What a shame to be led by them.

      Juan - 2012-01-06 17:04

      There's a difference between leading and just being in power. The ANC is doing the latter in order to raid the coffers

  • Garth - 2012-01-06 15:12

    Tsetse flies buzzing around a tired old bull. He is too tired to swish his tail at them and their bites do not penetrate his thick hide. No results - must be an anc scenario.

  • Piet - 2012-01-06 15:23

    Bhuwahahahahahahaha!!!! Bunch of Clowns!

      Juan - 2012-01-06 17:06

      Yeah melamarse is doing the circuis side-shows while showerman is leading the main event in Bloem

  • smathabe - 2012-01-06 15:24

    There is a few if not nothing the sane youth will inherit as a legacy after Malema's departure from youth fraternity.

  • Fanie - 2012-01-06 15:26

    Its coming. What goes round comes round.Hopefully we might get better leadership than this clown, who has a shower on top of his head. He must be the cleanest man on earth, just a pity his hands are so dirty.

  • Moss Mphahlele - 2012-01-06 15:32

    Shower will always be your symbol msholozi, unfortunately there's nothing you can do about it

  • Andrew - 2012-01-06 15:43

    While I do not believe JZ is a good President and has not improved the lives of its citizens, must condemn the manner in which non respect for the office of the President and an elder person is shown by these moronic upstarts. It is no wonder the country is in such a bad state and will be, no matter who is elected to hold office in the ANC.

      Silvana - 2012-01-08 11:17

      @Andrew. Respect is earned!!! What has showerhead done to earn your respect.

  • chisanga.mukupa - 2012-01-06 15:44

    It is good to live in a democratic country like we are now because people can make such comments about the head of state. See most of you are embracing the freedow which you only a few of you enjoyed and likely you are all living in south africa and my wish is you go around africa and then you will know that you are in good hands

  • STYLEbudd - 2012-01-06 15:46

    ag that bunch of idiots in the ANCYL - why doesnt our President lay a charge of some sort against Malema again thats as bad as singing "shoot the boer" its all the same thing its slander, hate speech blah blah blah fishpaste.........

  • Jackky - 2012-01-06 15:51

    the youths of south africa were so blind to see that the worst jakob zuma is better than the best juju.....this country,ll be worst than the likes of zim if malema and his comrades clings to the leadership mantle of this nation

  • Cedric Rakgogo - 2012-01-06 16:10

  • Qheks - 2012-01-06 16:11

  • Hendri - 2012-01-06 17:01

    Try and think of 1 country in the world (that has a healthy democracy) where certain members of the public do not ridicule their leaders. This is not uniquely South African, nor does it have anything to do with the ANC or JZ, it is just the nature of the beast!

    I dont know why these bunch of terrorist are allowed at Mangaung.We become a laughing stock.Where in the world a president is being attacked by his own people.Sisy to you youth allowing yourself to be brainwashed by these stupid leaders.How can police allow those idiots to sing those kind of songs distorting the president.ANC YOU GOT THE POWER TO STOP THESE TSOTSIS.

      Frank - 2012-01-06 21:43

      You are right cornelius. This idiot is giving these fools a dummy so that they fall asleep while he is accumulating wealth. To him economic freedom in his life time it's a tender. Wake up fools.

  • chris.khanye - 2012-01-06 22:22

    It's a shame that a Head of State is ridiculed and insulted by members of his party. At age 100 - the ANC as we know it shall never be the same again. A cancer has infected the ANC and operating later might be futile. And my worry is that tribalism is now evident within the ranks of the ANC and those who deny it are doing so at ANC's peril. 2007 was just a dress rehearsal, but 2012 will go down in history as the year the ANC celebrated 100 years and in a drunken stupor, it perished on its own vomit.

  • Vusi - 2012-01-07 07:52

    These are ill discipline members of the ANC. There is no individual who is bigger than the ANC.leaders come and go but the ANC remain.Happy birthday ANC. Mpilonde!

  • Rankgwatha - 2012-01-07 10:17

    if indeed our youth are our future leaders, i fear for the worst. there is no way i would want to be around to witness the kind of behaviour demonstrated by Malema followers, i call them his followers because their conduct is completely foreign to the ANC and do not think that they belong to this glorious movement. President Zuma is an elected sitting president of the movement and must be respected for that if people feel otherwise, there are processes in the ANC and will be afforded the opportunity to decide otherwise but for now they must respect internal processes of the movement and their outcomes. JZ is here to stay for the second term, u like it or not, if u dont like it do like those who did not like it and ended up serving so called divorces on the movement,it is ur democratic right to do so, pls live us in peace, some of us spend more than ten yrs in exile pursuing the course of this movement and would not allow any one to disrespect that course, not when we are still alive

  • avanderspuy - 2012-01-07 14:37

    At Sky This is what it is all about. Would you have felt for JZ if there was no Malema ? . Malema is created by JZ . See how it works , interesting is it not. The media makes us hate Malema so we tolerate JZ and his corruption. Corruption is good for big business. Big business control the media and politics internationally. Would you watch a soccer game if you knew it was rigged ? Like the youth that follow Malema so many of us follow the media as fools !

  • Jay - 2012-01-08 10:47

    i am so proud of the wonderful, respectful incredibly intelligent youth sub-species we have in this country! they are going to do wonders for this country! time for whites to get the hell out!!!!!!!!!

  • Jay - 2012-01-08 10:50

    the bantu education system was designed to keep the black population stupid. the new education systems designed by the government has surpassed the apartheid goals with flying colors!!!

  • Joseph - 2012-01-08 12:25

    @Rankgwatha, it is quite unfortunate that you fail to think out of the box most probably because you are employed and you do are not even aware that you are just a month from bankruptcy. The reality is that the youth is frustrated by the fact that there is no future for them as the current ANC leadership has failed to provide a roadmap aimed at addressing the unemployment of the youth in this country, particularly indigenous black youth. I think it is a gross mistake for you to claim that only those who were in exile made it possible for NP to give in. It is a fact that you could not face the killing machine of NP and you opted to run away and now you are trying to woo us to accept your cowardice. You are phathetic!! You sound more like a tenderpreneur. That sauce will not be for too long. The youth will not forever watch opportunists like you splashing public funds. There they come!!!!
