Will they or won't they - ANC set to make Malema call

2011-09-01 22:44

Cape Town - Embattled African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) leader Julius Malema, under fire from the ANC's top brass, will hear on Friday whether the party's national disciplinary committee will go ahead with charges brought against him.

He and five other high-ranking youth league officials have been brought before the committee on charges of bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing divisions in ANC ranks.

On Wednesday, the committee refused an application brought by the youth league president for the recusal of three of its members.

It found that insufficient facts had been presented to show bias or a perception of bias by chairperson Derek Hanekom, Mining Minister Susan Shabangu and Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane, a statement said.

Malema recently said the African National Congress Youth League would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and to help bring about regime change, as it believed the government there was "in full co-operation with imperialists" and undermining the "African agenda".

Charged with Malema are ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Masenogi.

All except Shivambu would appear before the committee on Friday. His disciplinary hearing had been postponed to a later date.

The hearing had been adjourned to Friday to give the committee time to decide on Malema's application for the charges to be dropped.

The disciplinary committee would deliver its ruling at 09:00.

Culprits identified

On Tuesday, groups of youths supporting Malema and his colleagues threw rocks, bottles and bricks at journalists and police in the Johannesburg CBD, and burnt pictures of President Jacob Zuma.

The violence subsided after Malema addressed them.

A small number of supporters marched in the streets around the ANC's Luthuli House headquarters, where the hearings are being held, on Wednesday.

They whistled, blew vuvuzelas, pointed at the building and shouted "voetsek" at policemen.

The police said they have identified people involved in the unrest.

"Those who were involved in acts of violence have been identified and arrests may be effected while the investigation progresses," Gauteng police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said.

The violence had initially caused the ANC to change the venue of the hearings from Luthuli House, but by Wednesday morning it had made an about-turn, saying that it would move to an alternative venue only if the situation didn't improve.

Will they, won't they, what will the clowns do next, who said what, what did they mean, who bliks**ed who, who's showering with who, who will back down next, where did those funds come from. Hau this is SA's political version of Dallas....... Showdown time on the boulevard peoples, guns are drawn, and the wimnner is........... Tune in tomorrow for your next installment, or miskin we are all just dreaming..........

      Komasa - 2011-09-01 23:33

      @Macho Mike you are the only clown in the circle. Your grammer is that of the 'main ou' around town, you are still a 'boy' little man.

      Sean - 2011-09-01 23:35

      Unfortunately all we get are questions, never answers. At least in Dallas we found out who shot JR. When we do get answers then the answer is studied for x months till we get a new set of questions.

      Redson - 2011-09-02 00:47

      Sadly he keeps making news. As long as the ass-clown Malema keeps embarrasing himself and his ancestors we'll keep seeing his ugly face in the news.

      LuLuBug - 2011-09-02 04:01

      komasa, before you critisize other's spelling - check on your punctiation. Try using fullstops and commas.

      Komasa - 2011-09-02 06:25

      @LuLuBug do you not know the difference between grammer and spelling?

      AdiB - 2011-09-02 06:41

      Grammar

      Babba x - 2011-09-02 06:45

      @ Komasa. Obviously you don't!!

      Rolie - 2011-09-02 07:08

      @Komasa - Is that the best insult yoiu can come up with. In spite of Malema most of us are trying to build unity amongst all South Africans and you come up with this? You are either trolling or just a sad little person.

      Komasa - 2011-09-02 07:40

      @Rolie read @Macho Mikes comment and tell me that drivel comes from someone with more than a peanut for a brain. There is always this 'take' on the african accent and pronunciation and I take that as racist. Until the minority can speak more than 2 languages, in the case of the english only one, only then will they be in a position to criticise.

      LloydSix - 2011-09-02 08:47

      Komasa, you are the one who pointed out grammar mistakes so don't start acting like you are the victim. No one would have said anything about your spelling or grammar had you not started it.

      aldo.wetsch - 2011-09-02 08:50

      @Komasa I honestly do not see the need to call mike a "boy". Did you see anything in his post attacking you? I did not. I saw someone trying to make a joke with well placed afrikaans "slang". As to your comment could not agree more also getting tired of all the free publicity a "nobody" is getting.

      AntiRacist - 2011-09-02 09:16

      Komasa is a Racist maggot, Thanks to him the minority will prevail as indigenous Africans, way to go brother, You are a champion!

      Ross - 2011-09-02 09:50

      I miss the Apartheid government as things were neat and organised. The trains were even on time and the hospitals had clean bedding. This Malema idiot has caused South Africa severe damage in terms of interracial relationships together with massive monetary losses. We have become the laughing stock of the world. Jan van Riebeeck must be turning in his grave.

      Teemachine - 2011-09-02 09:56

      @Komasa Why would we have to speak another language? English is the language of business and entertainment, I guess it's because they created that powerful productive empire that dominated the world, squashing insignificant people like you. Where would you be if all your favorite American rappers sung in Chinese, it wouldn't be nearly as easy to understand. Ha Ha... Viva the west, viva!!!

    If the ANC proceeds with the disciplinary hearing and kicks Malema out of the party I will gain a modicum of respect for them.

      Indeed.but that won't happen, they're too scared of the YL for that.

      The investigation by the public protector has already stopped, apparently due to "lack of funds" sounds more like a lack of will/guts

      I agree, this hearing is the least of his problems. We hope the PP gets more money to investigate.

      Let's march! All willing marchers please reply.

  • crackerr - 2011-09-01 23:40

    How ironic. If I were in Julius Malema's shoes I would be hoping for the most clever and independently minded judges available to hear my case on review. That is where the proceedings are probably heading. Now or later. You see Julius, in a fight not of your choosing you really would not like judges that your opponents appointed for their revolutionary zeal and skin color. You simply pray or wish for independently minded judges appointed for their legal and intellectual prowess. The referees must be independent and trusted because of the very nature of the appointment processes. It is always claimed - even by mommy Winnie Mandela 2-3 days ago - that you are still learning. May this be a lesson. Or will the legal system always be of value only if you can personally employ it to trash your opponents?

  • Mike Hoxbig - 2011-09-01 23:47

    Wait, first he was charge, and now they're deciding if he will be charged? Wtf is happening here?

      markings - 2011-09-02 06:20

      If one does not follow proper procedure it effectively invalidates everything one does. If that is the case here it is one more sign of their incompetence or negligence. How can the ANC, which is basically the country's government, with no limits as to the resources it can muster, not get something as simple as a disciplinary procedure right? It is incredible that there should ANYTHING which leaves these charges open to challenge on these grounds.

      The current ANC leaders won`t see beyond 2012 conferance.Its a fact they are fighting for their survival.With Fikile as the Secrtary General and Mr Deputy President as the President of the movemant,i just wonder how the ANC will look like with or without Juju.History repeats itself Mr Zuma will be recalled after December 2012 conferance.Mark my words.

  • Nzx - 2011-09-02 01:20

    The problem SA has with the Malema nasionalist movement is a big one, namely that, if you deal with the truth, it gains momentum whether you antagonise, ignore or support it, and Malema speaks the truth on behalf of the people who got shafted under the Nats and now again under the ANC. Whether you like it , or not, the truth will prevail, warts and all, and you will have to live with it or waai.

      J.B - 2011-09-02 06:41

      I agree that the truth is that there are people out there getting 'shafted' - no doubt about that. The reasons however are not because the state still owns the mines, banks and other big business. The reason is corruption and the money stolen could be used for education, health and job creation. This nonsense that nationalisation will create wealth for the poor masses is ludicrous! And if you believe it then you are an even bigger imbecile than the fat prick himself, Malema!

      DeonL - 2011-09-02 09:35

      Malema want to legalise theft, who's truth is this? It should not happen in a democratic country. Rather try working for your own money.

  • Jamesons - 2011-09-02 01:55

    The ANC's reputation is on the line here, so in my opinion, to save their reputation, they need to fire the Youth league members. But i think it is too late to recover their reputation, Damage was done before the world cup last year.

      pitbull - 2011-09-02 07:10

      They have a reputation? More like dis-reputation. I lost what little faith I had in the ANC thirty years ago. They were always a bad lot and their way of garnering votes is by bullying. Malema and his kind are worthless sacks of detritus.

  • ES - 2011-09-02 02:54

  • boerinkwd - 2011-09-02 06:25

    ...if OVER 700 charges of corruption against Zuma was dropped....how on earth could we hope that Juliaaas will be prosecuted properly for any wrong doing? If such a miracle does happen - then we might finally see a split inside the ANC, making them vulnerable. I say give them enough rope - and they will hang themselves, I hope & pray at least. The only way SA will get rid of the ANC - will be if they destroy themselves, simply because the average intellectual level of reasoning amongst the majority of its voters is quite low and that the masses have been 'brain-washed' to follow the ANC as their ONLY hope. My guess is that 99,9% of all of the comments on this site comes from educated readers - regardless of each of our opinions - BUT we are NOT representing the masses, and thats where majority votes add up, very sad but true. The reality of democracy in any third world country is that the masses will always be intellectually challenged, BUT they are also the ones who get to decide who runs the country...The solution for SA: Voters must look past colour, ethnic group or race - AND SIMPLY CHOOSE THE BEST PLAYERS AS THEIR LEADERS. But instead - history shows that any surpressed race will much rather choose a weaker leader amongst themselves than choosing a much better leader from another race!

  • ChumScrubber - 2011-09-02 06:29

    The monster has being created, even if they discipline him it won't affect the attitude of him or his members. This is what happens when leaders are weak and have poor morals. They were enjoying the show, now its going to backfire on the weaklings - and we all suffer as a result. Annoys the hell out of me.

  • Nasdaq7 - 2011-09-02 06:32

    They'd be stupid if they don't ban him from the ANC. He will embarrass them time and time again because he is an ultra-radical. The time to get discipline is now, while they have charges against him. The longer he stays, the more difficult it becomes to remove or charge him from a position he doesn't deserve. He amended the ANCYL constitution so that he could stay on longer. His second term as president was extended to five years from three. He is going to be difficult to get rid of.

  • Mike@CapeT - 2011-09-02 06:34

    Betting odds available..... 1 - 10 The matter is quashed. 1 - 5 Slap on the wrist. 15 - 1 Strong disciplinary action.

  • Proudly SA - 2011-09-02 06:37

    Over the las few days, we have seen the BEST and Worst of modern South Africa; fantastic response to Springboks with huge crowd representing whole SA unified is stark contrast to moronic stupidity Of Malema and his ANCYL thugs. They are doing so much damage to SA and robbing many citizens of decent jobs and self -respect as investors just get frightened away.

      Mike@CapeT - 2011-09-02 06:45

      If these thugs get away with it, it will give the ANCYL carte blanche to, forever, dictate the leadership of the ANC. Can the ANC be ruled by their 'children'.....let's see!

    Malema is a visionary, decades ahead of the time. Like Mandela, who was labelled a terrorist not long ago, malema will be remembered as a brave man, operating in the face of real danger, with the aim to improve the lot of the victims of greedy opressors, in 2011, regardless of colour or race. Malemas ideas should be embraced, his is the only way to peace and prosperity for all in SA. I can clearly remember my parents talking about the terrorist Mandela, today he is the man of the century. If you analyse what Malema says, look at the facts in an objective way, you can see a true genius at work. These people are rare, the Mozarts and Mandelas of this world, Malema is one of them, no doubt, his future contribution to SA will outshine even that of Mandela. As for the Nats, well I will have to be careful here because most of the postings here are from Nats descendants, well, that is a legacy to be ashamed about warped thinkers when it comes to social engineering, the are two dimensional "black and white " thinkers, so please leave the problem solving to the Jujus of this world.

      frans.visserdsb - 2011-09-02 07:33

      Dear NZX... please could you help me. I am struggling with the concept of Malema as a genius. the only genius he has to date shown has been his ability to use fears and hatred to sow division... In my opinion he has done more harm to South Africa in the past 3 years than any other person since Verwoerd. I am still waiting for anybody to explain how nationalistion will create economic emancipation (using big words to say something does not make it true)

      Nasdaq7 - 2011-09-02 08:06

      Go visit Zambia and Tanzania and see what happens when you nationalize: poverty. They have privatized it all again! You say whites oppress you: we provide you with work. Whites are trying to save the poor from oppression by encouraging private business. Take away private business and you will be working for the government at 20% of your current salary. Just be patient. Give it 20 years and you will understand. Socialism and eventually Communism ( state control ) is the enslavement of people. Free business is the liberation of people. Self-reliance. People start their own businesses and become wealthy. If you can't learn from the poverty created in Zimbabwe when the government seized the farms I really don't know! Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.

      African - 2011-09-02 11:13

      i totally agree with this person, indeed all over the world Mandela was viewed as a terrorist! Malema will one day be remembered as a hero, its a pity that even those that r part of the great anc have forgotten the utterances of the freedom chatter that say the wealth of this country should be shared amongst its ppl. i only blame malema in the ways that he seeks to implement this, defiance, the conference is comming, thats his platform!

    Mark my words, just as i have said for a long time, nothing will happen to Malema, not even a slap on the wrist, people have to understand things, Malema voices the ANC's opinions, and thats fact, as a leading party of a country, you cant voice racist views or voice ideas that will harm our country (eg, nationalise the mines) so you get someone to voice them for you, in this case Malema, as white South Africans we have to tread very very carefully, Malema is our future president, if you choose to disagree so be it, as a white South African myself, im telling everyone to leave, this is just the start of things to come, go into townships and hear how they speak about us.... We are out numbered... if this happened anywhere else in the world, Malema would be shot, so take a minute to think..... Why hasnt that happened here? Be safe everyone...

    i believe the timing behind this is a deliberate attempt to take the spotlight of more important issue of the information bill. they would have disciplined Malenema anyway, why now, not before or after the bill comes to parliament for final vote today. there was also no itention to make a real case against malenema, hence the deliberate screwing up of the process to ensure he gets off scot-free.

      I think you've hit the nail on the head here JCWR56!

    @Komasa - you are as rascist as they come! Cleary if a white person just opens their mouth to breathe you scream 'rascist'. Get over yourself TWIT.

    Charges will be withdrawn. This whole exercise was a pantomime orchestrated by the ANC to make it appear as though they were doing something constructive for a change. Nothing at all will come of this and that idiot will remain where he is - he is more powerful and has more clout than Zuma and the government anyway.

    @Frans -- Dont worry my friend, it is very common for anyone, even elegentsia, to struggle with the ideas of a true genius, especially when the ideas are way ahead of the current thinking.Not that long ago, they imprisoned such a genius for thinking, yes, the sin of merely having a theory that the earth is , yes, funny as it sounds, indeed round, thus not flat. Asd with Madiba, they put him behind bars, as this monster of a human being wanted to kill and maim fellow human beings. Think , think Frans, as long as your squatter camp friends have empty stomachs, and kept on empty, you will be a target. Do whatever you have to transform the squatters into human beings of 2011, and your children will stand a chance in SA. It is called sustainability, foret the commie rhetoric behind which the quasi intelligentsia hide, dont fear, think.

      @Nzx -- These ideas are "way ahead of current thinking" ? Man, are you daft. These ideas were tried in Russia in 1917, and they failed. The country broke up as a result of their failure. they were also tried in China, and have been given up before full damage was done. Of course, daft ideas like these thrive in Africa, and the "success" of the black states on the continent, which depent totally for survival on Western handouts, proves just how destructive and out of date they are. You must be a product of the failed anc education system. I hope you are not too old to get a proper education !

      Dear NZX - i do indeed think. Which is why i am concerned with the damage Malema has caused. In SA we have 50 million people, of which only 8.5 million are employed in the formal sector. Where do new jobs come from? from new factories, mines, etc. What does it take to build these? money. Where does money come from? from investors... Fact - Since Malema has started his Nationilsation drive, there has been a drop in direct foreign investment in SA of 77%. Fact - the largest investors in the banks and mines are foreign entities and local institutions - which is largely made up out of pension funds... so nationalisation will drive out foreign investors with tragic consequences and steal your and my pension... Fact - the mines and banks are allready running with people working in them - how will nationalisation provide more work? you going to fire the workers and replace them with ANCYL members? I think you will have problems with the labour laws, and the unions...

      If your "genius" could actually pass his woodwork class I am sure we would be able to believe him. But then Hitler was a house painter before he was ruler of the Third Reich. Unfortunately, Mr Malema does not half the charismatic quality or the vocabulary of Hitler, so it is unlikely that Mr Malema would succeed in anything other than making at absolute fool of himself when he trips over his untied shoelaces.

    IT WILL BE POSTPONED UNTILL IT WATER DOWN AND THEN THEY WILL ASK HIM TO APOLIGISE, WHICH HE WILL DO AND THEN LATER SAY, HE ONLY DID IT FOR THE MEDIA. IT IS ALL A PLOY, TO SHOW THE OOWER OF THE YL - WHILE IN FACT THERE IS NONE, THEY HAVE TO BRIBE THE PEOPLE TO BE THERE!

      They are called rent a crowd. All the payment required is a pie and a t-shirt.

  • AntiRacist - 2011-09-02 09:20

    The ANC should show the world they wont be dictated to, Charge Malema with Treason, The death penalty still stands for treason so they should hang him and his co accused in a public square where the people can throw dog turds at them,What a day that would be, see how fast the idle brain set changes in this country
