Sasco: They must die like cockroaches

2012-11-05 13:19

Johannesburg - The DA Youth on Monday laid a complaint against the SA Students' Congress (Sasco) leader at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University over a tweet on Helen Zille's Nkandla visit.

The complaint was made to the Human Rights Commission.

"This tweet is yet another incident in a long history of racist hate speech uttered by Sasco leaders, who continually seek to polarise and divide South Africans along racial lines," Democratic Alliance Youth leader Makashule Gana said in a statement on Monday.

The university's Sasco leader Sitha Gqomfa tweeted on Saturday: "DA mischievous to visit Nkandla they will die KZN akudlawa pha [we are not playing] and they must die like cockroaches!!!"

Gana said the tweet was "clear" incitement to violence.

Opposition leader Zille led a party delegation to Zuma's KwaZulu-Natal residence on Sunday, but was stopped by several hundred African National Congress supporters.

Police denied permission to Zille and her entourage to proceed along the road to the residence, citing safety reasons.

The crowd of ANC supporters, which eventually numbered between 800 and 1 000 supporters, blocked the road to the residence.

Gqomfa said the DA was the "enemy" and had to be treated as such.

"The DA acted against all morality by going to Nkandla. They knew that they would be met by ANC supporters there. They should have found another way to take up the issue, not [by] going to Nkandla to incite violence."

The DA wanted to visit Zuma's private residence, where an upgrade, reportedly costing over R200m and funded with taxpayers' money, was in progress.

      I heard Mac Mac on 567 702 this morning..Boy O Boy..what a bunch of wallys..I just could not believe my ears...He spewed out such $h!t, and think that we would believe the drivel.... They really do cater only for the ignorant, don’t they..? Third world..more like 4th world..

      chris.holloway.5 - 2012-11-05 16:06

      I wonder where the rest of Zumas wives abd children will live...Zumaville is much too small for his brood..

      brigitte.liebenberg.5 - 2012-11-05 16:57

      I would like to know what this Sitha is studying at University, what his marks are and is he going to graduate? There are, I think, many SASCO members who are NOT bonefide tertiary students - can they be fired?

      willem.vanrensburg.562 - 2012-11-05 17:07

      Gqomfa said the DA was the "enemy" and had to be treated as such. [we are not playing] and they must die like cockroaches!!!" CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE THE HEADLINES IF ONE OF THE D.A. SAID THIS...??? DOUBLE STANDARDS ME THINKS ITS NEARLY OVER FOR S.A.'s DEMOCRASY..

      duncan.gill1 - 2012-11-05 19:03

      I like that comparison...did not scientists once say that if we have a nuclear Armageddon that only cockroaches will survive,perhaps this foretells the DA will rule SA !!!!!!!!

      sean.bezuidenhout - 2012-11-06 18:17

      No! This is a sad day in our country when the only person who is willing to stand up to this blatant abuse of my tax Rands is a Woman. Not one person in this ANC government is willing to step forward and protect our rights and our constitution but when given a opportunity to address the press they would rather condemn that only person and side with corruption. People our country is in crisis!

      KennySven - 2012-11-12 19:57

      In the East cockroaches are a delicacy,high in vitamins and iron,deep fried then dipped in syrup and eaten,pity not like SASCO,they get flushed straight down the toilet with all the regular sewerage.

      gary.guy.507 - 2012-11-05 13:51

      @thabo.. you are such a dumb prick, u obviously dont have 2 brain cells to rub together. "Providing for his family" = "stealing taxpayers money" .. your money you idiot (unless of course u dont pay tax!!). If you can't see the problem here then don't come begging at the traffic lights to my car when the sh.t finally hits the fan here, cause you will only see dry eyes through my window!

      Havokreeka - 2012-11-05 13:51

      "DA thugs" Thugs generally steal and hurt those around the, just like the ANCYL and the ANC. So I think you're a bit mistaken Thabo.

      Lmao^^^ Std 4

      cyril.laubscher - 2012-11-05 13:53

      Haha tabo there is nothing wrong with providing for his family but doing it with R190mil of the taxpayers money THAT is what the problem is. Do you provide for your family using someone elses money?

      zuzie.v.venter - 2012-11-05 13:58

      thabo.mdodo Providing for his family is perfectly ok ...but to do it with YOUR and MY money is NOT so ok !!!

      chris.greenwood.31542 - 2012-11-05 14:03

      Providing for his family???? With R200 million??? Wake up Thabo! He is using our (Mine and Yours) tax money to renovate his mansion while his people (The one's that voted for him)are living in shacks and unemployed! He is stealing the peoples money to fix his house and the DA want to exploit that! It baffles me that you cannot see the damage Zuma is doing to this country, really it does!!! And again, you will vote for him hoping that there will be a change. I will let you in a little secret here Thabo, and I don't need a crystal ball for this, things will never change when Zuma and the ANC are still in power!! NEVER.....

      alfred.neumann.142 - 2012-11-05 14:11

      "Typical DA thugs trespassing whene dey not invited leave our comrade alone he just be providing 4 him family" Hahahaha! Well done thabo, that's officially the most retarded thing ever to be posted on the interwebs. With the amount of taxpayer's funds that that useless thieving p.o.s dips his dirty, thieving paws into to "provide for" his horde of fat wives, mistresses and illegitimate offspring you could "provide for" an entire province. "typical DA thugs" LOL! So the troop of drunken, feral ANC beasts with weapons setting fire to cars were just the "innocent victims" defending their beloved dictator as usual? Get real. And just by the way, since when did you need an invitation to go to a public road that you as a taxpayer have paid for anyway? Not so clevah, neh thabo?

      oistar.tutu.9 - 2012-11-05 14:15

      thabo. You deserve what is coming. Ingrate

      grant.stockdale - 2012-11-05 14:16

      @ thabo - When you spend my money without my consent - I have every right to inspect what you spending my money on - trespassing or not. This leader of ours had his text books when doing his Matric - R250 million would have ensured the same for Limpopo students in 2012. His selfish attitude toward this country and its people should be of huge concern to you - NOW !! It is to ME and several million other South Africans.

      nrgx.nrg - 2012-11-05 14:21

      @Thabo...DA thugs??? Remind me again which side of the fence discharged a weapon in public...was it the DA, nope .... oh thats right, of course it was the anc buddies. open your eyes, free your mind and you will be set free!

      frank.cornelissen.1 - 2012-11-05 16:11

      It seems Thabo disappeared back to the rock he crawled out from under. Seriously Thabo, you probably need help in tying your shoelaces if you believe your own drivel! Eish, dumb as mud!

      This was clearly a death threat. DA, please don't pussyfoot around with complaints at the HRC, go to the police and lay a criminal charge against the idiot!

      willem.vanrensburg.562 - 2012-11-05 15:26

      stirrer.stirrer -I think we are past hoping that the police will help. That’s over. Don’t ever think that you are safe with them. It was the SAP that stopped the D.A. march, they will not take ANY charges against the A.N.C. with any amount of seriousness. There is no more public service thing left in S.A., it has become a chommy, chommy thing, comrades only club..G@d help us..!!

      marius.a.visser - 2012-11-05 16:28

      And on top of that, these anc @holes still sing their happy song "kill the Boer"!!! WTF!!! Its not just crime and corruption the ANC has managed to drive up, its hatred and racism as well!!! Think we should come up with our own song? "kill the....!!!!"

      pyn.appel - 2012-11-05 14:23

      @mahlorislash ... you are very very blind by racism! Zille was one of those FREEDOM FIGHTERS to get rid of apartheid, did you know that !?!?! I think she and her DA deserves a chance to govern our beautiful country as SA can only do better without the ANC! Any colour leader, we DO NOT CARE, but the leader must put the country and its people first!

      cyril.laubscher - 2012-11-05 14:51

      I dont care what colour the president of this country is i just want a party to be ellected that is willing to help grow this country. Let the DA have a black president we dont vote DA because the president is white we vote for change and If DA does a crap job then vote someone else in thats how it should work.

      pyn.appel - 2012-11-05 15:10

      @mahlorislash - Why will a black person never be viewed as equal??? I know a LOT of blacks that are equal and more (AND they know it because they worked hard for it, they strived for it) You are holding yourself back. Start contributing and stop demanding!

      peter.jefferies.90 - 2012-11-05 15:15

      @mahlorislash it is blind racist fools like you that bring down the country! It will neve be enough you will only be happy when SA is in ruins! Go to Zimbabwe and live there it is already a complete F-up so you would like it there.

      peter.jefferies.90 - 2012-11-05 15:18

      @Mahlorislash South African citizens who want SA to work will never see racist people like ou as equals! Get over your hatred of white people!

      peter.jefferies.90 - 2012-11-05 15:54

      @mahlorishlash, your previous statement says that black people are useless. Not sure how you would like us to comment on that!

  • jacowium - 2012-11-05 13:35

    I am not going to waste any energy wondering if the ANC bigwigs are going to condemn the way SASCO expressed their sentiments - I already know the answer to that one. Since the ANCYL failed in its bid to close Twitter down (can't think why), it seems their supporters have realised its use in spreading moronity.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-11-05 16:03

      Marc, no, you CANNOT say that, because it is racist and it is hate speech. Two wrongs do not make a right. As long as people retaliate to racism with more racism, this country will deteriorate into a cesspool of racist hatred. Rather deplore the comment and argue the merits of the case, than retaliate with more racist drivel. it helps nobody.

      Children that grow up need to take responsibility for their own actions, and some people are unable to handle such responsibility. The condition is identified by constant excuses, spindoctoring, promises and lying and is very, very contagious, as can be seen by the epidemic prevalence in SA. Cure?

Why Should the DA not be allowed to investigate the intolerable spending of our money for a president who has no intention of doing good for us or the "people" of SA, and it is even more retarded that ANC supporters are so blind and uneducated that they rally to protect a president that does nothing to take them out of poverty. As far as the SASCO youth leader and his comments, he should be prosecuted and reprimanded for such a primative comment(Does University not teach him a thing?). It only sparks and promotes violence to a group of people who know not what to think or how to behave. I am sadly proudly South African.

I have indian and black friends who educate their children the same way as I do and they agree that the ANC don't want to educate the masses so that they could manipulate the vote. I started my own business in 2000. I will employ the right poeple for the job and I will cut on taxes were I can, we are giving them tax money to do these things. In other words they steel from us, but let them carry on they don't need us and they don't need our tax money.

      sizwe.zuma; That's because although the whites voted for change, the present Government has not stopped their racial attitudes [and verbal attacks] against the same whites and is now increasing that agenda. Unfortunately our view of the unbelievable destruction of standards of most of the important institutions [health; education; defence to name just a few], the crime & corruption without any accountability the by government members, is being touted by many in government and seen by many blacks as a racist agenda by whites against blacks. Not true....The vast majority wants this country to succeed but it cannot with this type of leadership.

  • vernon.samuel.7 - 2012-11-05 17:08

    No self-respecting political organisation should keep members who utter such degrading nonsense in public - let alone leaders. If no action is taken by Sasco over these utterances, then it should be assumed that that is Sasco's official stand. And hopefully all major political players distance themselves from Sasco. If youth organisations are allowed to spread such racial hatred, it is a bad sign for the future of racial harmony our country.
