No complaining from lawn of RDP house – Malema

2011-05-07 14:32

Citizens cannot complain about the lack of service delivery while watering the lawn in front of an RDP house, ANC Youth League (ANCYL) president Julius Malema said today.

“When protesting they burn tyres on a tar road but they complain no delivery,” Malema told thousands of lively Galeshewe residents in Kimberley.

Before speaking, Malema was introduced to the ANC election rally by Northern Cape ANC chairperson John Block with huge cheers and giggles from the crowd.

Malema continued in his usual manner and to the delight of the crowd in advocating the nationalisation of mines in a province which has huge mining interests.

“We (ANC) had done everything in fighting poverty but we do not have money.”

He said the ANC would fight wealth until mines were owned by the country’s people and “we’re not asking for permission”.

The Youth League president said the country’s land “being turned game farms” should be taken away without payment.

“We all agree they stole the land. They are criminal’s, they should be treated like that.”

Malema criticised opposition parties and referred to the “Madam” as the “person moving around doing a monkey dance looking for votes”.

The IFP was referred to as the “culture” group, while the “People of the Congress” was a party formed in anger.

“Never form a party when you are angry, when you smile that party is over,” Malema told a cheering crowd.

The party supporters, which swelled gradually were entertained from a huge stage which was erected in the Galeshewe Stadium.

Many people arrived in party colours and waited patiently for party officials to arrive.

The stadium walls were covered with ANC posters and placards with ANC President Jacob Zama’s face.

Before Malema was asked by a dance and singing girls group for a dance, he told the gathering if they do not have any reason to vote they should “do it for Mandela”.
