Malema sinking slowly but surely

2012-04-07 13:49

Anything Julius Malema says or does sinks him further into political oblivion.

By choosing to destroy the ANC instead of building it, he has just condemned himself to stand in dangerous quicksand.

His sinking may be slow, but it is final and irreversible.

People who promised to bail him out are running scared because Malema has become a huge political liability.

Nobody from known political circles will want Malema anywhere nearby.

It’s almost as if the man is suffering from highly contagious political leprosy – and perhaps he is.

It is also worth noting that it is not the ANC that is silencing him; it is his foot-in-mouth that prevents him from speaking in the name of ANC and its structure.

Fikile Mbalula, Thandi Modise, Mathews Phosa and Paul Mashatile are watching helplessly and in disbelief as their trusted pawn loses his potent weapon.

Not all members of the ANC Youth League will waste their time sulking over someone who is no longer a member of
the ANC.

The message to Malema and his cronies is that money will not buy them everything. Most members of the ANC still have their principles and values intact.

A few corrupt and selfish individuals who joined the ANC for personal gain want to use Mangaung to elect fellow corrupt individuals to guarantee flow of government tenders to their own pockets.

Mbalula’s agenda has long been exposed. Unfortunately for him, no matter how much he may crave for higher office, he will never get anywhere near it.

How can a factionalist lead the ANC?
