15 000 expected at Malema pre-trial vigil

2012-09-25 10:07

Johannesburg - More than 15 000 people are expected to attend a night vigil on Tuesday for expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema ahead of his corruption trial, The Sowetan reported.

Limpopo ANCYL spokesperson Klaas Mabunda told the newspaper it had arranged buses to take members and Malema supporters to the night vigil.

"I can confirm that after lengthy articulations, the provincial executive committee of the ANCYL has mandated to organise transport for members and Malema's supporters," Mabunda said.

The buses would transport people from all 10 sub-regions of the province to the Jack Botes hall.

According to The Sowetan, Mabunda said the buses would be paid for by businesspeople and "some" ANC leaders.

The branch was also printing posters and T-shirts in support of Malema.

ANCYL deputy president Robert Lamola and provincial chairperson Rudzani Ludere would address the gathering.

      @Sganja, if it takes to have Verwoerd inside of you to reason and think like a normal human being, then so be it. It is cristal clear that the majority of people in this country do not have the ability to think for themselves.

      alan.gernet - 2012-09-25 10:45

      15,000 to attend the vigil. Eish - I have an idea - let's play "Spot the Brain Cell'.

      Julius's Traditional Healer that he used at Lonmin will be amongst the 15000. I trust that he again will be asked to cast a traditional spell to make Julius invincible in court. For his sake, I hope it works this time....

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-25 12:32

      Sganja, most people here were not even born when Verwoerd lived. - 2012-09-25 12:55

      Now watch the court date being postponed before they even start!! lol ... I hope these buses' tyres are good they gonna run up and down plenty times!! ANCYL I suggest you budget a little extra for 'unplanned bus rentals' this is going to take many trips to sort out all this cr*p....

      wt.echoridgetimes - 2012-09-25 12:58

      15 000 expected at Malema pre-trial, THE WHOLE COUNTRY EXPECTED AT HIS GUILTY SENTENCING and once his in jail, Zuma can make his move. . . Headline: “Julius dies a mysterious death.”

      stirer.kathray - 2012-09-25 17:44

      Tat's clever! the ANCYL is gathering (and paying, no doubt) to support a person who is suspended, thereby becoming a non-member during his suspension term. I am also a non-member of the ANCYL. Does that mean they'll take buses to come and support me if I get arrested?

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-09-26 13:50

      is it me or these guys can't count? 15000 looks awfully little in those photos! more like a few hundreds (maybe)....

      just out of curiosity have the crime levels in sa dropped while the night vigil was being held?

      Add free KFC and 100,000 will turn up...

      max.reynecke - 2012-09-25 10:45

      The transport is going to cost you more than the half loaf and free T-shirt...but then again a sucker is born every second in this country.

      ditantane.kganakga - 2012-09-25 12:28

      @ Max don't worry about transport we got it covered sucker, @ Squeegee if KFC will bring numbers then we will buy too. @ Raymond come join the revolution.

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-25 12:36

      Raymond if they hear you come from Australia and they see you are not interested in one of their Sheilas they may allow you to stay. Some may ask you some difficult questions about the Abbo hunt though. So be ready, smart alec. - 2012-09-25 12:52

    I don't understand, if he has been expelled then it must stand to reason that the ANCYL is operating outside the boundries of the parent body by virtue of the continued support of this expelled member, said operators should surely be called to order by the said parent body.

      he fights for the poor? Lat I heard was that he uses the poor to enrich himself???

      good one, most people would have retaliated in a bad way. Anyway why are u generalizing now?

      ntombomzi.speelman - 2012-09-25 12:17

      lucky u fourie u are not part of this sick country you are civilised and u are rich,u wont be plundering u wil be skydiving,you will not be stealing because u have more than neccesary

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-25 12:48

      Ntombozi.speelman. We are all part of this sick country. Don't think that all white people are rich and skydive. White people, for the most work hard for their money, they don't accept handouts and they don't sit in the sun waiting for charity. They work. So when you say they have more than is necessary, you assume that you have the right to decide what is enough for the whites. Do tell us where you get that right from. Go work, study and learn and you too can have more than is 'necessary'

  • rontheogre - 2012-09-25 10:26
