FS toilets: Heads must roll, says Malema

2011-05-10 14:54

Viljoenskroon - Somebody must take responsibility for the open toilets in Viljoenskroon, in the Free State, ANC Youth League president Julius Malema said on Tuesday.

"Heads must roll," he said while inspecting an open toilet in Fallrock.

Malema said no municipalities should have open toilets and it should not even cross their minds.

Malema said that if a municipality did not have enough money to build a fully-enclosed toilet, it should not even begin.

He said that even in an ANC-led municipality, the party's leadership had come to condemn the practice.

Mbalula pitches in shiny car

Malema said there had to be money found somewhere to enclose the open toilets in the community.

Referring to the owner of one of the open toilets he inspected, Malema said: "This old woman must say that the ANC was here and that her plight will be taken care of.

"They [the toilets] will be closed."

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, who arrived in a big, black Mercedes-Benz, said municipal officials had explained that the toilets would be closed in phases.

In the areas where there were open toilets, building materials such as sand, bricks and steel frame doors lay in the streets.

"We condemn open toilets. It's inhumane...," said Mbalula.


He said no human being could live that way. "There's no privacy, no humanity and no dignity."

Mbalula and Malema were accompanied by ANC heavyweight Tony Yengeni, who said that the ANC's national working committee, saw a report on the Viljoenskroon situation on Monday.

"There's no excuse for this. People in the municipality must take full responsibility."

Yengeni said the ANC could not condemn others and allow people in its own camp to do this.

    I agree Julius !!! Let's start with yours. Didn't your contruction company build these shameful toilets ???

      Spyker May - 2011-05-10 15:06

      For his own head to roll, he simply has to sit down, on one of his own "OPEN" toilets and "OPEN" HIS MOUTH...

      juliarse malemas mouth is as unenclosed as these 1600 aNc sh1thouses

      SuperCal - 2011-05-10 15:15

      why dont you sell that big black Mercedes and close at least 20 toilets.

      clark - 2011-05-10 15:43

      - Nice try Malema - aint gonna work. Classical Anc tactics - if you can't deny, then try to deflect . Find a fall guy and lynch him. To add insult to the injury of those residents, the Anc bigwigs arrive for the inspection visit in their flash limo's. They are blatant liars and hypocrites , trying now desperately to put out the fires. Love the way all the Anc topbrass are rushing around , chasing their tails trying to deal with this screw up. All to little to late Anc - your game is up.

      Shadoz - 2011-05-10 15:44

      And once we are gonna have to pay for these toilets and once again the money will go missing. when oh when is this gonna stop. I am battling to take care of myself with all these price hikes in food accommodation, fuel, tolls and power. When the hell do i get my R40.000 toilet.

      "Somebody must take responsibility for the open toilets in Viljoenskroon." Why leave it at toilets? What about the corruption, embezzlement, theft, meritless appointments, tenders to incompetent fools, lack of delivery, inability to spend grants - etcetera?

      truly mike webber in the story you only saw a need to comment about Juluis either the inhumane innocent people are expose to

      Richie - 2011-05-11 11:54

      ANCYL need to ge there with bull-dozers like they did in cape town... not big fat mercs. LOL. Sifso, i dont know if you know this, but Juluis is the leader of the ANCYL who sparked this saga... you brain-dead buffoon.

      Lambchop63 - 2011-05-11 14:39

      Mike, Sifiso is a lost cause!!!! maybe these "poor" people should try voting for a different party... But a bet they will go straight back to the polls next week and vote for that pathetic excuse for a circus they call, the "ANC".... you get what you vote for i guess!!!!

      Rugdusty - 2011-05-11 15:40

      its ok to drive a big black merc as long as you did your job, earned it and did not get it as a present . What the f... is the sports minister doing inspecting toilets ? Is he looking for Bafana bafana or the proteas ?

      Serial killers, rapists, criminals in general and open toilets are all because of apartheid!!!

      ORIGINAL VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold. MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself! MODERN VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference; demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. SABC1, 2 and 3 show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. The world is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Kermit the Frog appears on Good Morning with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.' Demonstrations are held in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, 'We shall overcome.' TV commentators explain that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and there are calls for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share. Finally, the Government drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government and handed to relatives of the grasshopper. The grasshopper instigates a lawsuit against the ant, and the case is tried under the watchful eyes of the trade unions. The ant loses the case. The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighbourhood. MORAL OF THIS STORY: Be VERY careful how you vote in 2011!!

      Muna - 2011-05-11 23:29

      I predict an even bigger win for the CNA this time round, because the oposition supporters have all left SA. I bet you all know at least 10 people that have left SA in the last 5 years. Going going gone. Very shortly even the ANC will immigrate, probably to ZIM because things will be better their.

      Gatvol - 2011-05-10 15:47

      @protest I also saw that same article several months ago when the DA toilet saga just began. They ANC can't say they didn't know. These are indeed 2 faced scum bags now taking the higher ground after being exposed by the media. I pray for the day when the people of SA black, white, indian and coloureds will no longer accept these scum bags in governemt and see them for what they are

      Shistirrer - 2011-05-10 15:50

      The difference is that it was not headline news one week before the elections! The ANC has perfected the art of doing nothing for 5 years, then making a show of "governing" and "caring" two months before an election. Also, last year they have not yet called the DA "inhumane" for doing the same thing, so there was no need to look after these poor people's dignity.

      Creeky - 2011-05-10 16:21

      Malema, Mabulula and Yengeni.."We condemn open toilets. It's inhumane...," The people CONDEMN the ANC for ATTEMPTING TO BUILD THESE TOILETS!!!! What a SAD BUNCH OF NING-COM-POOPS!! They are LYING... THEY KNEW ABOUT THEM ALL ALONG!

      Protest - 2011-05-10 16:45

      Now why on earth did News24 remove my comment? There was nothing derogatory in there. Just pointing out that the toilets was known to the ANC since before 2010-07-11 And Malema did not want heads to roll then. What have changed?

      GBES - 2011-05-10 17:35

      Eight years ago Julius Malema got tenders and became a millionaaire overnight. The open toilets started that same year. Logically according to my two year old..Malema got the toilet tender,and stuffed the money into his pockets and became a rich fat cat. Must be him.His head must roll.....

      Muna - 2011-05-11 23:31

      Don't shoot until you can see the white of their eyes. We can't waste bullets.

      angie - 2011-05-12 11:29

      The thing that everybody needs to understand is that these b____ bas_____ (lets just call them turds) knew when they took over power from the boere, that they would never in a million years be able to run this country. Their main objective was to pocket as much as they can before the whole country comes to a standstill. The country is in such a mess that it is going to take decades to repair the damage that they have caused, and they know it, but they are too busy stuffing their pockets and riding the gravy train to realise it. What we built up this past century the are breaking down and destroying, and they are managing that excellently!

      @ bla bla: Apparently, according to news 24, these toilets have been unenclosed for 8 years. And the residents have been continuously voting for the ANC in this time, so... don't hold your breath for a revolution.

      avaricesa - 2011-05-11 11:33

      They're kinda uneducated and don't care that the toilets are open. As long as they have toilets, now the toilets are being closed?... nice

      Rugdusty - 2011-05-11 15:42

      LOL nice one warren... its the people in these areas own dumb fault ... you cant blame apartheid or the whites for these toilets

  • Krush - 2011-05-10 15:02

      LloydSix - 2011-05-10 15:08

      They still built open toilets regardless of whether they defend them or not.

      gizzy - 2011-05-10 15:09

      ha!ha! But they will behave inhumanely!!! Those toilets have been there for 8 YEARS!!!! So, you want to tell me no ANC big nob has been to that area for 8 YEARS?????? Eish! and the Fikile comes swanning in in his big black mercedes! Just to rub people's noses in it! Don't you just love these opportunistic thieves?

      Phil - 2011-05-10 15:14

      you seem to forget, the DA enclosed the toilets 3 times, the ANC ripped down the enclosures each time. Apparantly better open than enclosed with metal Exposes the ANC propaganda for exactly what is was

      googoodude - 2011-05-10 15:15

      Oh please!!! These toilet have been up for years and 'nobody' knew about it! It's a pathetic tactic ANC is using to claim innocence and then seem to be the better party! OH and then turn around and say, 'you see we care'! While driving around in their fancy cars while your people have nothing anyway! The only reason anything is now suddenly being done is cause someone was clever enough to expose the ANC for doing the same thing. The ANC just thinks everyone believes the 'we didn't know about it' crap!

      Slapper - 2011-05-10 15:17

      I bet they think twice before pointing fingers again Kolobe. You still havent commented on the FS toilets? Typical ANC Shithouse.

      DeonL - 2011-05-10 15:18

      I bet you it will not be fixed in 2011, maybe in 2012.

      RVQ - 2011-05-10 15:18

      Yes, they've chosen to pass the blame but only because they can't deny it after the making such a massive spectacle about the Cape Town case...

      How can they after they made such a fuss about the toilets in CT - wait - there will be a lot more of these cases coming out - the anc stinks!

      Luckybugger - 2011-05-10 15:32

      Moline my poor blind and ignorant friend, those thieving thugs you support will never close those toilets, after the 18th you will never hear of them again, and how blatant is super thug Fikile in his new Benz after he smashed the tax payees other car a couple of days ago, then convict Yengeni making a appearance speaks volumes for the government of the day

      rasta7109 - 2011-05-10 15:32

      ding-dong kolobe: The DA tried a few times to enclose those toilets in Makaza, but the ANCYL saw something to sensationalise, and they broke down those enclosures every time. How short your little ANC memory is, or is it just very selective.

      jwill - 2011-05-10 16:09

      The only reason they COULDN'T defend their because they never knew of it hahahahahahhahahaha Kolobe, ag shame......

      Yeah, they'll simply deny it and try to deflect attention unlike the da who actually took resposibility. Spot on kolobe.

      the diffrenece between the ANC and the DA is that the DA knew waht has and waht hasn't been done, hahaha

      Snoopy88 - 2011-05-11 13:23

      you can condemn it till you are blue in the face... the point is someone actually has to get off their butt, hire people, buy the supplies, hire the equipment and project manage the job to completion. And there is no-one employed with the skills to do that so... keep condemning all you like!

      Pfffft - 2011-05-12 11:43

      kolobe, I would love to read a medical report on what is between your ears....

      Electronic Cemetery - 2011-05-12 12:38

      @Kolobe, if you'd bothered to find out about the original arrangement in Cape Town with the people who use the so called "open toilets" you'd understand that about a thousand toilets were built and it was arranged with the residents that they themselves would enclose the toilets... 50 families failed to comply with the arrangement and LEFT THEIR OWN TOILETS OPEN... The DA defended their case to those ends... They did not argue that the toilets should be left open at any point! These toilets were built a fraction of time ago compared with some of the open toilets built by the ANC in the rest of the country, those that were built, some areas governed by the ANC aren't even supplied open toilets and are still using the systems provide under the old regime because the ANC have forgotten to help these people... Can you not see right from wrong? Do you just accept that the ANC do not respect the "Man on the street" or "average Joe" for providing them the opportunity to improve their own lives legally but instead enrich themselves beyond reasonable perimeters off the back of these "Average Joe's"? Please expect more from the ANC for you own sake and for your children's sake in their future! They're selling you short as much as they're selling the rest of the people here short. Even if you disagree with what I say please investigate for yourself how the ANC are failing YOU in service delivery and general Governance!

      Together - 2011-05-10 15:30

      These toilets stood open while the ANCYL spent R100 million on a youth festival. Judge the actions, not the words. And in the Cape residents used the building material lying around to enclose their toilets - which the ANCYL tore down - while residents tried to stop them. We will see how many more open toilet farms there are around the country in the days to come.

      @Sifiso, why do you single out the language used by FaxM8 Fax? Shouldn't you be more concerned, if you are truly concerned about our image in SA, with what one our recognized leaders is saying at rallies about minority race groups being criminals and general hate speech being spewed by him? That is far more damaging to our "Image" than a little profanity on a news thread... Don't be pedantic over the nothing issues please! Please without getting your back up or taking it personally I need to ask you a question... What precisely has the ANC told or given you to make you support them with such fervor? I need to understand where you are coming from and maybe the rest of the ANC supporters too? I simply cannot understand it?

      Electronic Cemetery - 2011-05-12 13:25

      @Sifiso I took the liberty of checking out your profile attached to your comments to try understand your perspective and found under your "Favorite quotations" this :"a person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new" I fixed your typo on your page for the sake of correctness in this post... Have YOU tried anything new lately? Say voting DA? Or at least checking out their referendum instead of just voting and defending the ANC without questioning them at all? You wouldn't have made a mistake having never tried anything new if you don't... Right? I dare you to try something new, live up to what you have put down as a "Favorite quotation". You have nothing to loose I guarantee that! Anyone who's good at what they do and believe in themselves and their ability would be all to happy to see this country live up to its full potential... The president is not a King and this is not a Monarchical country you owe the President nothing, he owes you his all every day all day the president should work for the people, not vise versa, because THAT IS DEMOCRACY!

      @Sifso, it's the ANCYL that that totally drove this toilet saga of 53 open toilets (not 1600). The DA immidiatly fixed the comunities f#ck-up, but the ANCYL kept insiting violence in the Makaza. Therefore it very much has something to do with Malema... numbnut!

    Need to get get their heads out of their backsides before they can roll

  • Gorilla - 2011-05-10 15:07

    I wonder if Juju realises it's his wonderful ANC that stuffed up.

  • tshwanecc - 2011-05-10 15:07

    It clearly shows that the ANC leader is not abreast with what is happening in most parts of the country. Don't they have a representative in that area?

      gizzy - 2011-05-10 15:43

      No, they only have cadres that are there to collect their pay checks!

  • Darkwing Duck - 2011-05-10 15:07

    Heads must roll? I couldn't agree more! Shall we start with yours? You don't seem to have much use for it yourself...

      Matt - 2011-05-10 15:35

      Sadly, Juju prefers Maria Antoinette "let them eat cake". Sadly, only Juju will get the cake. Others have to crap in open toilets.

  • 50something - 2011-05-10 15:08

    Agree - heads should roll- all you ANC fatcats should be first. I hope Malema will apologise to the DA. At the same time, the communities should also take responsibility to do something for themselves - give them the building materials and let them enclose the toilets, rather than waiting for the government to do everything for them.

      Together - 2011-05-10 15:32

      If they enclose their own toilets the ANCYL will tear it down. Oh no, that's only if it's in a DA municipality - I forgot. Maybe the ANC and it's youth league will show real professional leadership qualities and apologise to the DA all on their own - without anyone making them.

  • Happy-go-lucky - 2011-05-10 15:09

    its become more of an embarrassment to action will more than likely be swift and violent

  • coolwaynie - 2011-05-10 15:09

    This coming from the biggest smelliest open toilet of them all..

  • Mgayi - 2011-05-10 15:10

    In the ANC collective responsibility is always emphasized , therefore the ANC should take resposibility for the FS open toilets .Why should it be the fault of one person whereas if it was a success story everybody in the same ANC would claim credit for that success ?

      Mthetwa - 2011-05-10 15:15

      Too true

      GBES - 2011-05-10 17:35

      Eight years ago Julius Malema got tenders and became a millionaaire overnight. The open toilets started that same year. Logically according to my two year old..Malema got the toilet tender,and stuffed the money into his pockets and became a rich fat cat. Must be him.His head must roll.....

  • M.H - 2011-05-10 15:11

    I like the way he says that the old woman must say that the ANC was here and that her plight will be taken care of...the ANC put the frikken toilets there like that in the first place... Please can someone at the DA department make a 'stink' about this....

      Together - 2011-05-10 15:33

      I hope they don't - SA citizens must start to speak up for themselves - they're the ones being treated like rubbish by their leadership.

      M.H - 2011-05-10 15:50

      Good point @Together, makes sense

      SYLVERSTAR - 2011-05-10 19:01

      @together WILL THEY EVER?

      greatgodpan - 2011-05-11 13:20

      that comment is not a is a threat.........the armed struggle? many of you remember the 80S?.......the anc was never involved in a serious military struggle with the sadf..........they were involved in a terror campaign based on intimidation and persicution within the black townships,.........they maintain the votes through this same tactic today......fear.

  • gizzy - 2011-05-10 15:11

    Don't you just love these fools. All scurrying now to check out open toilets that have been there for 8 YEARS!!!!

  • n s - 2011-05-10 15:11

    and Malema didn't know about this until now?

      SYLVERSTAR - 2011-05-10 19:02

      He forgot..........

      Razzo Corporation - 2011-05-10 20:08

      Just like he didn't know he was still a director in all those companies... Then again this is an idiot who on daily basis asks things like - 'where am I?' and 'who is going to unwrap my sandwich?'... So, let us not act surprised..

  • Egg-Zachary - 2011-05-10 15:12

    see - they arrive in big shiney cars, that one car could cover the cost of the materials to enclose those toilets, but they will still vote ANC! Then, Malema called the DA racist for not enclosing toilets (which the ANCYL tore down) in the WC. So what now?! Juli-ass Mal-enima, you aree a f%$#ing moron! Bullet to the head please!

  • Gorilla - 2011-05-10 15:13

    On my way to work this morning I saw a chap squatting on the kerb doing his morning constitutional. It seems that all these toilets without walls are making people very used to taking a dump in the open. One squatter, one toilet.

      Mgayi - 2011-05-10 16:01

      I once saw a newspaper article whereby a dude was taking a dump on the tar road surface , and his excuse was that he was afraid of taking a dump in the bushes bcos he was bitten by a spider before whilst doing his business there . . . .

  • johncarlos.biza - 2011-05-10 15:14

    He should go sort out the taxi rank his tender company messed up in Limpopo

  • Perfume - 2011-05-10 15:15

    Nationalisation of Toilets!!!!!

  • Slapper - 2011-05-10 15:15

    I wonder whose head will roll? definitely not Malema's. Probably some poor salary slave that pointed out the problem in the first place. Oh the Embarrassment Julie? How come the Cape issue had you jumping up and down and this is the first you have mentioned of the issue in your ow FS municipality? It took three months to push through the SAHRC and the FS has to date taken 7 Months, without a peep from you?

  • Nawe - 2011-05-10 15:16

    The Anc is not supporting the open toilets like the D.A did....

      Sho Fukamachi - 2011-05-10 15:23

      Get your facts together before you make a comment.

      FUBAR - 2011-05-10 15:26

      You are also a bloody idiot. The ANC was wrong in building the open toilets in the first place. Period. Don't try and defend them by saying "The Anc in not suppoering the open toilets like the D.a did..." You are probably to stupid / uninformed / uneducated / brainless (take your pick) to realise that all the ANC is doing is stealing form the poor. It is not the minority (whites if you can't figure it out) that is making the poor poorer, it is the corrupt politicians. They steal money and then blame the minority (whites if you still don't know) but secretly they need the minority (whites in case you are still wondering) so that they have someone to blame the corruption on. When you vote on Wednesday, think before you make your cross...

      Obviously not as the ANC toilets have been standing open for 8 years !

      Matt - 2011-05-10 15:37

      @ Jacques - no, Julius IS Leon Schuster. Watch the next news report and expect him to pull off a mask, shouting "oh Schucks! Hier kommie Bokke"

      OuWitBooi - 2011-05-10 15:51

      The ANC are not supporting them now - but they were happy to leave them for the 8 years until the media brought them to everyone's attention. The DA immediately tried to enclose the Makasa toilets, but your thugs kept demolishing them. But logic and morality will not get through to the blind followers of the ANC. They only follow emotion and free T-shirts.

      JustinD - 2011-05-10 16:11

  • Greegs - 2011-05-10 15:18

    Its all backfired right in his own face! The strange thing is, those people will still vote for the ANC. Surely these voters should get another party in and see if they can deliver? The chickens are coming home to roost!!!

      Chip1 - 2011-05-10 16:14

      This is why they keep the quality of education low and don't give the pupils the learning materials, because if they were educated they could think for themselves instead of following the masses.

  • Jaimo - 2011-05-10 15:20

    What a pathetic lazy ungrateful nation. Having been built connected up toilets they can't even be grateful or active enough to easerly enclose them themselves!!?

      Matt - 2011-05-10 15:39

      I saw a chap on TV from Kimberley, demanding a new asbestos-free roof for his RDP house. I sympathise that he has asbestos in his roof, but can't he just get a job and fix it himself? That's what we'd have to do in the same situation!

  • rashied.wilkinson - 2011-05-10 15:20

    Ppl who build tiolets that are not fully enclosed, i mean ppl who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

  • Orosman - 2011-05-10 15:20

    what crappy elections. more focus on toilets that all parties knew about in the first place. Simple short term remedy is to have ready made closed toilets like used at various functions or construction sites. As toilets are rebuild these mobile toilets can be moved to where needed and so on. Of the community can be given paid jobs to keep the toilets clean.This is what municipal leaders are all about. To care for the community.

      Realist - 2011-05-12 10:59

      Changing your tune now?

  • rasta7109 - 2011-05-10 15:22

    Yet, when the Cape Town municipality tried to close the toilets in Makaza, the very same ANCYL broke down those shelters in order to sensationalize the matter. That is why the court case happened. What a bunch of hypocrites!!

  • Rethabile - 2011-05-10 15:23

  • Lisa - 2011-05-10 15:23

    sell your fancy cars, stop drinking expensive whiskey and there will be money to enclose the toilets.... Looks like the ANC is doing major damage control....

      Hey Simodi, those fancy cars are paid for by the tax payer, the same guys who paid for your third rate public school 20% pass rate education that will eventually get you that BEE job! Thats how it works in the real world babes, now go away, this forum is for people who debate real issues!Also those expensive cars are all imported, manufactured by the west, why dont you guys design and engineer your own brand? I can just picture you, you turd, you must be one ugly mother if you need an expensive car to give you confidence!

    These two are going to end up over throwing thier own leaders within the party. Malema is two faced big time. Now he confirms the fact that he wants a senior position in the ANC.

  • The Unknown - 2011-05-10 15:24

    Malema to the rescue. He knows how to solve shitty problems. That's all he's able to do is to sort out problems relating to toilets.

  • Vaal Donkie - 2011-05-10 15:24

    Since when does the ANC worry about the privacy, humanity and dignity of other people, its only about them and how they can enrich themselves. Juliass now has egg on his face after going on like an idiot when the DA was guilty of the open toilets. The ANC has so much dirt that they sweep under the carpets, but like the old saying goes "what you do in the dark (Black) will come out in the light (White) Take note the colours in brackets people, it is what Juliass advocates. Form you own conclusions.
