Malema: Down with Helen Zille

2011-04-29 16:24

Cape Town - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema on Friday encouraged supporters outside the Western Cape High Court to "bring down Helen Zille" and vote the ANC into power in the city.

"Down with Helen Zille. Away with Helen Zille. Viva ANC, Viva.

"Spread the message. We are here today to bring down Helen Zille. Convince everybody here to vote for the ANC," Malema said.

He was addressing some 70 people shortly after judgment was handed down in the so-called open-toilet saga in Khayelitsha.

The court ruled that the City of Cape Town had violated the dignity of residents there and ordered the city to enclose 1 000 toilets in Makhaza, Khayelitsha.

Malema: ANC must win

Judge Nathan Erasmus also found that police failed to comply with a court order to investigate vandalism of open air toilets.

Malema said the judgment indicated that the ANC had won.

He said the people of Cape Town must enclose the toilets because "Helen Zille and Cape Town will not adhere to the judgment".

Voting for the ANC and ensuring that party candidate Tony Ehrenreich became mayor would ensure that the people of Cape Town had their dignity restored, he said.

The people who had gathered outside the court since 10:30 awaiting the judgment, danced and cheered as Malema addressed them.

Wearing "Vote ANC" t-shirts bearing President Jacob Zuma's face, the protesters did not want to speak to media, except to say they were from Khayelitsha.

One of them carried a placard saying: "Helen Zille go to hell, rest in shit", referring to the leader of the Democratic Alliance.

Others carried small portable toilets. One woman lifted her skirt up and sat on the toilet posing for photographs.

Complaint lodged with SAHRC

Curious tourists gathered around, taking photographs.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula was also at the court.

The DA-led City of Cape Town was accused of violating residents' right to human dignity after 51 toilets were erected without enclosures in Makhaza, Khayelitsha in December 2009.

The ANCYL, on behalf of community members, lodged a complaint about the open toilets with the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) in January last year.

The SAHRC recommended to the City that it reinstall the 51 toilets, but the city appealed against the SAHRC finding.

This was when the ANCYL decided to launch a court application on behalf of the residents.

      Julius was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when he turned to her and said, 'Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.' The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the him, 'What would you like to talk about?' 'Oh, I don't know,'Julius said. 'How about nuclear power?' and he smiles. OK, ' she said. 'That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass - . Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?' Julius, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, 'Yu haikona wena, I have no idea....' To which the little girl replies, 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know sh1t?

      Yep - Juju gives a complete new meaning to the word "Toilet Humour"...

      ZAR Minority X - 2011-04-29 18:33

      How many ANCYL members does it take to count 51 toilets? ...51.

      - Laughable really - This hypocrite Malema believes this is a victory. Can't wait for the mass protests when the people all round the country demand en - suite toilets. I wonder if we will witness any more Tutane massacres ?

      Larissa - 2011-04-29 20:17

      On a recent trip to the United States , Julius Malema, President of the African National Congress Youth League, addressed a major gathering of Red Indians. He spoke for almost an hour on his plans for South Africa. At the conclusion of his speech, the crowd presented him with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - Walking Eagle. A very chuffed Malema then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds. A news reporter later asked one of the Indians how they came to select the new name given to Malema. They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of sh1t that it can no longer fly.

      yo mal mal, talk is cheap brother...if u have a better offer than zille in capetown, and any other city for that matter, lets see it? the ANC may win the national ballot, but each town now must decide for themselves between following historical blind party voting or give change a chance....why not go for change?, if u dont like the switch to the DA, u are free to vote them out next time round...simple

  • FerretGee - 2011-04-29 16:37

    Sad that the ANC's election campaign in the Western Cape seems to hinge soley on the fact that toilets were built without walls! It is highly unlikely that the Western Cape will fall back into the hands of the ANC and if the toilet saga is the "biggest" mistake the DA has made during it's tenure, it pales into insignificance against the multitude of cock-ups the ANC has made in every other province with it's non-delivery of services and it's plundering of municipal coffers>.

      multicon - 2011-04-29 16:44

      It wasn't a mistake, it was an agreement that the residents didn't uphold. Typical.

      freedom - 2011-04-29 16:47

      not only municipal coffers but state coffers too wherever they can take they will grab

      FerretGee - 2011-04-29 16:50

      @multicon, agreed - hence my use of inverted commas.

      FerretGee - 2011-04-29 16:52

      @Multicon, my words should have said "biggest mistake" (It's late on a Friday, the old brain is in weekend mode)

  • multicon - 2011-04-29 16:46

    Clearly propaganda, don't even know why they bother with toilets, as they defecate in front of my house, and urinate along the roads facing the traffic.

      freedom - 2011-04-29 16:52

      my point exactly no shame but toilet doors become an issue, it merely election propoganda. Its amazing how much of a threat Zille is to Malema.

      Larissa - 2011-04-29 22:31

      Yup, a cross the road the neighbor's tree is always used as the toilet, although the garage is just 10 meters away...Why?

  • goodson - 2011-04-29 16:52

    Why don't the ANC make such a big scandal about the other townships/informal settlements in municipalities controlled by them? Surely 51 open toilets pale in comparison to the hundreds of thousands of people that don't even have water? The city of Cape Town at least tried to give something to the community and now it seems as if the ANCYL are the best thing since sliced bread. Come on ANC! Put this kind of effort into fighting corruption and delivering services.

      Ogre - 2011-04-30 13:17

      I think that the ANC have just kicked themselves in the nuts. By lodging and winning this case, a president has been set for any body else, not just the DA, to register a complaint against the ANC held municipalities for lack of services. Let all of us show the ANC voters that we care and flock to the SAHRC en masse to register our cases.

      Martin du Plessis - 2011-04-30 13:25

      I HOPE the other people in this country will follow suit and start lodging similar cases against the ANC.

  • grinchSA - 2011-04-29 16:53

    I wonder how many toilets that dumbwit malema has used in the western cape?

  • Gatvol - 2011-04-29 16:59

    This Malema is un f@#king believable. The DA delivered the enclosed toilets as per regulations. In addition to the standard, the DA gave more toilets than were required, under agreement with the community that they would construct the enclosures themselves for the additional toilets. They failed to do so. Now comes the ANCYL thugs and destroys the toilets and the enclosures that the DA tried to build after the ANCYL complained about the open air toilets. This was a low, below the belt blow to the DA to try and score votes. ANC can go and screw up the rest of the country, they will never rule here again.

  • multicon - 2011-04-29 17:00

    Malema will go all the way to Cape Town(At whose expense?)to score political points on poor delivery of services by the DA.In the rest of the country run by the ANC there is not poor delivery of service but no service at all and sewage is running through the streets.Why not going to these towns like Ficksburg with some definite action plans to prove to everybody that they are doing something.They prefer to critsize and make false promises they can't keep and in the process stir up emotions.

The court is not a TV set, there's absolutely no reason for broadcasting rulings. And it's not a circus also - why all the clowns and all the show off? What i fail to understand is why are the good judges of this country allowing this kind of nonsense to happen in the court houses? Why should Malema or anyone else be allowed to present at court, with supporters? A court session is neither a rugby game, nor a political rally... so why the cheerleading? When are we going to see South Africa become a real country with a real democracy with real electors that really participate in public decisions?

      I think you don't realize that people are demanding things for free, and taking what they had for granted by breaking the toilets that were built in a community leader's agreement that the citizens of those communities would be accountable for providing enclosures for those toilets. Clearly you can't think, thus, you shouldn't speak.

      farmworker - 2011-04-29 17:46

      So you also thinks black people are so cheap and deserve the treatment, and at the same time you try brainwash brothers to cross floors. Damn u so predictable.

      farmworker - 2011-04-29 18:00

      An just to make it clearly even those toilets were built by black people while the DA pocketed paychecks. Everything that needs manpower was built by Black Man and the situation will remain. Some people are too lazy to do physical work.

    Mr Malema’s obsession with gutter politics especially when it comes to the DA exposes the deep seated fear the ANC has for the educated population who will not swallow the continual policy of “broken promises” emulating from the Ruling Party. The ANC continues to show its arrogance and disregard for the “voice” of the people. The people have given the ANC an ultimatum reinforced by the often violent protests and marches against “service delivery”, and the best the ANC can do is windup the “clockwork puppet” and let him lose to spew the ANC sewerage in the hope of keeping their highly paid jobs as “leaders” of the country. If Mr Melema could convert his “motor-mouth” into a productive work ethic, the ANC may have less to fear from the opersitiom political movement.

    Haha, "open-toilet-Helen" .. it'll stick to her forever. It reminds of "John the goat-fu*ker". Remember HIM?? A multi-millionaire who had built most of Cape Town and the Waterfront and the Harbour .. but no-one called him John the Great Builder. But just f*ck a goat once, haha. At least we are ALL clever enough these days to see a little glitch for what it actually was. I hope.
