Zuma unleashed monster: Mazibuko

2012-09-15 18:34

Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance (DA) has accused President Jacob Zuma of unleashing a "monster" when he allowed axed ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema to stir up division in South Africa.

"...When the President's allies allowed Malema to roam the country stirring up division and chaos, they unleashed a Frankenstein monster," DA Parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

She was one of several DA leaders speaking at the party's provincial congress.

"The deployment of Malema at [the last ANC conference in] Polokwane five years ago was no accident," she said.

"Their [the ANC's] problem is that the Frankenstein monster now wants to devour them. A party will always be judged by the leaders it produces."

Mazibuko was referring to Malema's recent visits to several mines where he urged workers to remain defiant against their employers and government.

National strike

Last month, 34 striking workers at Lonmin's Marikana mine were shot dead by police and 78 were injured. Workers were demanding their wages be increased to R12 500.

Last week, Malema told striking miners at Goldfields near Carletonville not to return to work until their demands were met.

He also called on a national strike to take place once a week every month.

This week, Malema also visited SA National Defence Force (SANDF) soldiers in Lenasia, who are facing disciplinary action for a protest at the Union Building in 2009. Malema criticised government and accused it of ignoring the needs of SANDF members.

DA spokesperson Mmusi Maimane told the Free State congress that the current wave of violence by miners was the product of a war between Zuma and Malema.

"It is pretty obvious that there is now open warfare between President Zuma and Julius Malema. It's all about power, it's all about their egos and South Africans are caught in the middle," he said in a speech prepared for delivery.

Zuma to blame

"What is particularly disconcerting, is that Julius and his backers are willing to put the stability of the country and its economy at risk simply to score political points for [the ANC conference in] Mangaung."

Maimane said Zuma should blame himself for Malema's behaviour.

"By not delivering on his promises, by not showing decisive leadership, by dodging accountability and by taking the country in the wrong direction President Zuma has created a vacuum for Julius Malema and his backers to cause havoc.

"They [ANC] are willing to sacrifice years of economic progress in their own pursuit of power. What power does Julius Malema have to change people's lives? What influence does he have? What office does he hold? None."

Zuma told MPs in Parliament this week that action would be taken against those suspected of inciting violence.

He said it was not just the striking miners who were engaged in such "unacceptable" activity.

'Freedom fighters' not intimidated

"It is also some people of some description who are going there to instigate miners to operate in a particular way," Zuma said at the time.

"It cannot be accepted. And therefore we are looking into that; we are going to be acting very soon."

Suspended ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said economic freedom fighters were not intimidated by Zuma.

"If he thinks that we are intimidated by threats to take action, he must know that we are not," he said on Thursday.

Whatever action is taken should be legal, warned Shivambu.

On Friday, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe announced that government will not tolerate the violence, threats and intimidation taking place in the mining sector.

Human rights 'a distant memory'

He announced that measures would be put in place to ensure the mining situation was brought under control.

These included that "illegal gatherings, the carrying of dangerous weapons, and incitement, as well as threats of violence against anyone in the affected areas, will be dealt with accordingly".

On Saturday, the congress also heard that the ANC's ability to govern was collapsing.

"A political movement with such a proud history of fighting injustice, which has had the privilege of being directed by some of the great leaders of world history - has lost its moral compass," DA leader Helen Zille said.

"The human rights that people like [former ANC presidents] Nelson Mandela and Walter Sisulu fought for under apartheid are a distant memory under the ANC of Jacob Zuma."

She said the internal war in the ANC in the lead-up to its elective conference revealed the party's "true colours".

"Now, the ANC is a collection of warring factions, all desperate to entrench their personal power, abusing the name of the people, using the state as a vehicle for patronage to reward those who keep them in power," she said.

"For the ANC, it is not about the people or the country, it is about staying in power at all costs."

      Time that SA citizens stop blaming each other, white this black that and apartheid, we all know the problem is not with these things. Most people in SA know the government is the real problem, time for us all to join forces and stand up against this rotten government, we must throw them out and put competent strong disciplined leaders in power.

    The ANC also unleashed Zuma onto all South Africans. His legacy may take generations before it can be rectified.

  • kim.buren - 2012-09-15 18:55

    The fact that Zuma has no clue how to run a country speaks volumes to the output. There is no intelligence in SA's leadership. Malema will continue to make a mockery of this country until this government makes a stand against this idiot. Fools will flock together

      irene, you are wasting your time to explain who she is. They just don't have the mentality to make sense of what you are saying and that is why they will continue voting ANC, cuase just like their leaders, they are clueless.

    Nobody likes chance especialy if it is a difficult and painfull path . Other people have tried the "civilised" way to change the goverment . Thabo Mbeki, Moeletsi Mbeki, F W De Klerk and i can go on ad infinitum . They did not listen , now Malema is bringing the message clear - Start governing for the people or your days are numbered . The ANC due to their huge majority in parlement got fat , greedy and corrupt. We all prayed that the ANC's power should be curtailed . That there should be some accountability .That they should know that they can be voted out . Who is giving us that ?? Malema . So I for one is very very glad about Malema . Malema is practicing democracy . He is mobilising people against the fat pigs in the ANC .This country should be gratefull to Malema , no matter how misguided he is , no matter that he has alterior motives

      gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-09-17 17:05

      Malema stands for Malema only, just like the rest of the pigs at the trough. He is an opportunist, and the fools have given him all the opportunties to attack them.

  • raymond.buis.3 - 2012-09-15 19:20

    I have just been through all the comments on this article and the funny thing is all the ANC supporters are saying she is fat. One question . How does that even factor into an argument about governance? Also have you idiots even seen the leaders of the ANC now those are some large people. I think it is a requirement in the ANC to have at least one neck fat roll. Most of them look like they just finished eating a baby elephant .also our friend malema looks like overstuffed sausage.

      Michael - 2012-09-15 19:28

      I am ANC member, i agree with you, you see how frustrating it is to read idiotic comments, thats what we read alot from DA supportes most of the time about issues related to ANC, for them/U Anc has never done anything in the last 18 year!

      irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-09-15 19:32

      azaa ~ Wrong again boy. What really makes one think is where you went to school because they sure didn't do a good job on you. I find it really sad that there are people like you roaming in civilised society. How do you function with such ignorance? Do you also protest and go bezerk when you don't get your way? Aren't you embarrassed by yourself or are you just plain retarded?

      Innocent - 2012-09-15 19:37

      Most peaples comments they lost content and understanding this is nothing to do with Mazibuko physical shape and weight.not judge people by it cover by it contents.

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-16 12:23

      Raymond.buis.3 You never hear them about the fat, incompetent women in Zuma's Government.If they are not on about Mazibuku's fat, they want to 'do' her. Whimsical lot of gnomes.

      Giyangethambo - 2012-09-17 09:49

      she is too fat though

      thabang.bonang.7 - 2012-09-17 13:54

      To all those that called Malema fat, I agree with them. But one thing for sure is that Lindiwe Mazibuko is fatter. I would recommend bioslim for her.

    It really is time for the voice of reason to prevail. For all in position of Leadership in the country to develop ethics, integrity, honesty and to rule our beloved country in a fair and just manner. after 18 years it really is no longer about colour. The culprits have long since left South Africa. We as black people need to show the world that we are and can lead by example. we need to shift prejudice aside in order for us to cohesively contribute.....no matter how small toward making our country what it is meant to be...a beautiful place to live. a civilization center needs to be set up to educate about uncontrolled shacking. Business needs to be stimulated in all corners of South Africa to alleviate this phenomena. We as women can help ourselves by making sure we can take care of ourselves before we start to procreate. There are many, many ways each and everyone of us can do some introspection and come up with an idea on what we as an individual can do to make our country a better place. I have a sister who on a daily basis feeds a huge number of people and I can see the toll it has taken on her. if only there are thousands like her, our country would probably be the most prosperous entity. God do not sleep for those who are power hungry, greedy and really completely and utterly self absorb and self centered and that is why they are putting there personal goals ahead of the future of our country.

      Lee.Parker.39142072. As far as I know free speech hasn't been taken from us yet. Mazibuku has as much right to speak as you do. Just a pity you think you have the right to tell others to shut up, something you should maybe consider doing yourself.

    I am compelled to make this comment and direct it to some DA supporters and caution them that not all people commenting on this site are stupid if they are against your beliefs.U will never win hearts of disgrunted ANC supporters if u call them nasty names.This is excactly what your party is doing to bash the ruling party instead of offering the relief and solutions.Carry on making WC as holly place, which is being exagerated by u.Do not put too much pressure on achievement made by your leader and forget that she is a human being and has weaknesses.Stop calling other people names,simply because u do not favour their comments.

      sibusiso.gigaba - 2012-09-16 06:31

      Jean as the DA still a small opporzition party only leading in the Western Cape. The only way they will ever govern this country is if they apeal to the black voters. To call them names and say to ANC supporters that they are stupid wont work becouse its them that your party must win over to the DA. Tony Leon tried to be confratentional it did not work.

      jayjay.mlungu - 2012-09-16 07:59

      ndlovuvincent -I agree 100%. I am a Mlungu, but voted twice for the ANC. I stopped when I saw what was happening in terms of corruption & service delivery. I now use my vote where I think it will make a difference, not for colour but for my fellow countrymen. I cannot vote for a party simply because they were the liberators or "because I might upset my ancestors". I also cannot vote for the same party and say "we will sort the leaders out later". This stereotyping of whites and blacks and voting black or white is really immature. We need to vote for SA, not a party?

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-16 12:36

      Ndlovuvincent. It is strange that you caution DA supporters but you ignore your ANC buddies whose utterances against the DA is of such low morale that it is better to pity them. Especially if you see the language they use.

      Pula can you tell me really that the ANC is doing a great job running the country. We have a high level of crime and unemployment in this country only a fool cannot see that. I am not a DA supporter but i can see that something in SA is wrong. I think before you hate someone listen to what they are saying if it makes sense or not. Right now i think Mazibuko is correct the present government is failing us who voted for it.

      jayjay.mlungu - 2012-09-16 08:03

      Pula keep race out of it and tell us why the DA is bad. Like it or not, I am African because I was born here, as were my parents, just as yours were. Being white does not make me less of an African-I had no say in it, just as you didn't. Think SA, nor party!

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-16 12:41

      Pula.betsho, calling people pinkies is so pathetic it is almost laughable. So tell your fellow superior nightshade people to stay in the East Cape and not flock here looking for everything the ANC have told them they have a right to. Apparenlty under the ANC government the East Cape is going straight to hell.

I am not for the DA or any opposition party in particular. I am however for taking responsibility and accountability. When the CEO of Barclays was caught out in publishing incorrect figures, he resigned. When the UK track and field manager did not meet the target he set himself; he resigned. That is accountability. We have a culture of clinging to power.

  • KReddy - 2012-09-16 01:46

    @Mbavhalelo. If I undderstand you correctly you want to remain stupid and the only way to be understood is if everyone else dumbs themselves down? Perhaps if you educated yourself (wait, education is not free in rsa!!) You will understand that what buthelezi said about reason and logic is absolutely correct. She transcended the blind faith in following the ANC. Fine, the anc liberated us, then what? Nothing. Do they believe they can sustain this democracy? Sadly , by the rampant looting of our money while they can, they have very little faith in building to the greatness rsa can reach. Now if you understood that, maybe the zoo people will let you climb a tree. I think all you know is to hold a pen and mark x next to zooomers face. I pity that you have no idea that you have to work for something (fyi, even the tendrepreneurs have to work for their money by scheming and hiding and palming the right ppl). Nothing for nothing. I can't believe there are so many ppl who would blindly follow the \liberation movement\ all the way to the cliff, jump off with them, and straight into the stranglehold of apartheid with a different disguise. Fyi again, apartheid wasn't only about racial divisions, you people would suffer even more when you can't blame another race for your own stupidity. That R12500 the miners want will soon get it as inflation will rocket so fast (like zim) that it will still be worth R4500. Carryon, a loaf of bread will have to be paid by a packet full of notes soon and cries to the west (or east - china) will be made for aid when instead, we can stop the stuff ups happening here and be self reliant and happy successful ppl.

      OBE?? Good for you!

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-16 12:57

      Ipeleng.molaba. You are not going to tell me that this drivel is suppose to be English are you?. I know it isn't your first language. But if this is what they teach you at school, I feel really sorry for you.

  • leko.dada1 - 2012-09-16 06:46

    I'm trying very hard to recall hearing DA talking sense.not a single day. I never get inspired or convinced by anything coming out of their mouth ... they dont have time to listen others views, they TELL-YOU and if you disagree with them you get good label UNEDUCATED ... if you smile and wear blue t-shirt your label is the best EDUCATED. told educated. these copy cats will tell you about every working policies around the world (they do read and claim to be educated). Is there anything origional produced by DA ? I will take insults from you guys...you have nothing else to produce.

      jayjay.mlungu - 2012-09-16 08:16

      Leko if what you said was true, I would support you. The DA has produced the goods where they govern. Unfortunately our current rulers have not produced the goods. Be clear about it-comment using your brain not your loyalty

      rocky.bell.927 - 2012-09-16 11:11

      You should read, watch and listen more. Do you really know what is happening out there. DA Talking sense?? 1. School books. 2. Health care 3. Education 4. Unemployment (40%??) and the million other disasters created by the cancer party. Wow...... no one is as deaf as he who doesn't want to listen. How much longer will you give your stamp of approval to the anc to take this once "beautiful" country further down the cess pit???

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-16 13:02

      Leko.dada1. After the tripe the ANC have been selling you for almost nineteen years, you are so use to hearing bull that you can't understand what the DA is saying. You are not uneducated just misinformed.

      leko.dada1 - 2012-09-16 14:34

      Changing a person's views/ idea considered to be true is not educating rather brainwashing, thats your DA's expertize! when Zille-Mazibuko-Maimane and Zuma speaking i get bored...why? its tedious lies ,not in touch with reality . Unlike listening on Tambo-Mandela-Mbeki and Malema speeches (even the world pays attention),why? its only one of its kind. And i'm not asking your opinion.

  • Muffin_man_can - 2012-09-16 06:47

    Lindiwe Mazibuko - the voice of reason..

  • graham.horn.505 - 2012-09-16 07:55

    And Malema, *directly* and *personally* unleashed Zuma on us. If is wasn't for him personally, we would haven't the very governement that he - Malema now wants to complain about. He is at least as much the cause of the mess we have today as anyone else in the ANC.

  • TawwaTienie - 2012-09-16 08:09

    That is the anc's dreams

      moloko.ngobenimphago - 2012-09-16 10:04

      Lindiwe she is the future,ANC needs to wakeup n smell the cofee.I for one sick n tired to the drama in this country.

  • TawwaTienie - 2012-09-16 08:14

    They started already in 1994. What happened to ? In parliament. Nothing. http://www.extraordinaire.co.za/search/our-greedy-government.php. And more. Arms deals. Corruption has stolen dignity of ALL South Africans. Who are training and behind malema and youth to kill white farmers?

  • TawwaTienie - 2012-09-16 08:16

    What about corruption in DA. Paris?

  • Mjak8s - 2012-09-16 08:26

    The DA never ceases to amaze me. They talk the talk but never walk the walk. They have the propensity of sitting on the fence and unleash empty verbiage without seeing wisdom in getting stuck in

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-16 13:05

      Mjak8s. well they do get school books to schools in time and no children here are 'schooling' under a tree. If that isn't walk the walk what is?.

  • Werner van Deventer - 2012-09-16 08:34

    Ipeleng! Porn in a chess game? Think the word you were looking for is 'pawn'. idiot

      Amahle Nofemela - 2012-09-16 10:44

      @werner de Venter: thanks for the spellcheck. Moron

  • sesom - 2012-09-16 09:36

    They should arrest the little F..K.Throw away the key.

  • kholofelo.mokolo - 2012-09-16 09:39

    There's a distinct difference between referring to i.e. likening someone to \Frankenstein's monster\ and explicitly calling them a monster, me thinks(as a third language speaker). How many people, dignified people has Breitling Bozo, insulted, DA tea girl included, with the silent and therefore implied approval of the so called leadership, which includes a convicted fraudster (has to do with a british racing green Mercedes Benz ML 350). Doesn't look good for President Frankenstein for Mangaung, once unleashed it's nigh on impossible to recapture an opportunistic monster with a taste for the finer(read tender) things in life, bought with ill-gotten paper. Should have read the manual.

  • kholofelo.mokolo - 2012-09-16 09:46

    Ps: Julius Malema, Floyd Shivambu and Sindiso Magaqa went down, where's latter, doesn't he want vengeance like the former 2?

  • rofhiwa.ronald.1 - 2012-09-16 09:53

    Lady L mazibuko plzzz Mary me . u hv nail Mr zooooman Mr zooooman ur messing up our beloved country ,mazibuko is r8 Mr zooooman hv created the monster malima n malima is getting mo popularity than u Mr zooooman

  • maqhinga.mchunu - 2012-09-16 10:03

    \Sour grapes\ I want to call it. It is clear to everyone, be they sane or insane that the so-called Hellen Zille was commenting from an opposition party's point of view! She's comparing the current leadership of the ruling party to its previous leadership as though she once supported the ANC under former President Nelson Mandela and others!

  • Amahle Nofemela - 2012-09-16 10:49

    i think Zuma deserves every bit of sh*t thats going his way..he is a hypocrit, Malema was going off at Prez. Mbeki and he kept quiet and now that Malema has turn the tables on him he is quick to expel him and label him a person of some description.

  • tshepo.maganedisa - 2012-09-16 11:02

    ha ha ha ha if we were to look at the looks i think Lindiwe you might also be referred as a monster too - so i guess it is true what they say it takes one to see the other - *shivering with monsters around me, Juju and Lindiwe*

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-16 11:17

    Oh dear! Zuma created a couple of monsters, now ready to swallow him. Wasn't he the one who predicted that Malema would be president one day?. Mind you he may be right.

  • joubert.tlou - 2012-09-16 11:27

    maybe she s tired of washing zile underwear ths zulu okare batlare tena jwale maan lindiwe mazibuko u still young my girl keep queit nd wash zile underwear...

  • seun.mogotji - 2012-09-16 13:08

    The ANC also unleashed Zuma onto all South Africans. His legacy may take generations before it can be rectified.
