Malema did nothing wrong, supporters insist

2012-09-26 09:49

Polokwane - Supporters of expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema said he had done nothing wrong, ahead of his appearance in the Polokwane Regional Court on Wednesday.

"There is nothing wrong [with what]... our leader did. If he did anything wrong why [is this case happening] now?" asked a supporter.

"It is because we are going to Mangaung. This is just a plan to sabotage our leader."

Thulani Motsepe, 23, from Germiston said he took a taxi to Polokwane on Tuesday because he felt he needed to show the world that Malema was innocent.

Malema's supporters believed their presence would have an impact on the charges against him.

"I came all the way from the inner city branch in Johannesburg, just to prove that there is no case against my leader," said 27-year-old Xolelwa Ngele.

'Hands off our leader'

A placard carried by supporters read: "hands-off our leader, he did nothing wrong".

When Malema arrived at the court, some of his supporters ran towards the court fence, jostling to get a glimpse of him.

Malema is accused of money-laundering. The charge sheet lists him as accused number 10.

On Tuesday, four of his co-accused appeared in court and were granted bail of R40 000 each.

They are accused of fraud, corruption and money-laundering, relating to a R52m tender awarded to On-Point Engineers. Four companies were also charged.

Malema handed himself over to the Polokwane police on Wednesday morning, before his court appearance, reported SABC.

Roads leading to the court were closed on Wednesday and police were monitoring the situation.

There was barbed wire outside the court and police Nyalas were positioned in various places surrounding the court.

Hundreds of Malema supporters sang and danced outside the courthouse. The crowd was expected to swell as the day progressed.

Others sat on the pavement, and leaned against the walls after participating in a night vigil for Malema on Tuesday.

    He Stole your money! if you consider that "nothing" you deserve to have your money stolen

      In their eyes killing is no problem, so why would corruption and theft be a problem?

      susan.paul.330 - 2012-09-26 10:05

      He stole your money, he drives fancy cars, he lives in luxury, his supporters have nothing, what has he done for them? "nothing" if his suppoters are happy with this, then they deserve to have nothing...

      Yeah right he did nothing wrong!!!! He enriched himself at the expense of others.Wrote chqs to his family trust.Did not pay nearly R16mil in taxes.So why oh why again has he been charged? So what you are protesting for, who you are supporting and the way you go about the situation makes absolutely no logical sense. Grow up and take responsibility for your own lives,Malema cares very little for you,only enjoys being on your little pedestal. Go back to work or go back to school you fools.You have no purpose in this country's economy,you have no future in this country if you keep up with your caveman mentality. Malema is a criminal fullstop.He swindled millions upon millions,lives in a mansion,drives his million Rand car,eats the best food money can buy.And you? You so valiantly and blindly defend your leader,when your "leader" leaves you to rot in your pathetic shack dwellings without running water,living by candlelight like a neanderthal. The lucky few who received a FREE house,you have the collective government,and years of hard work and sacrifice to thank for that.When is the "Youth" going to wake up and realize that Malema has no interest in them,their family,their poverty,their unemployment or their dreams and hopes. He only cares about two things:His money and his political career,if you can call corruption,intimidation and enticement to violence a "career".

      "I came all the way from the inner city branch in Johannesburg, just to prove that there is no case against my leader," said 27-year-old Xolelwa Ngele." So the judge will call him forward and acquit JM because he travelled from the inner city branch, thus proving JM's innocence of theft?? The reasoning and logic of a 27 year old who was 7 years old when Mandela walked out of jail? And looking at the media reports and these idiots dancing around, there are a lot like him!!! The youth who are supposed to be 50% of the population? Perhaps it is too late in the day to save SA. Don't know, but despair and a cold hand clamps my heart.......

      amico.amico.5 - 2012-09-26 10:55

      Do you know where you are wrong? The people he stole from are at work as we speak. Most of the people who are there with him are unemployed otherwise they'll be sleeping waiting for night shift or they'll at work boosting SA's economy and waiting to be ripped of their hard earned money at month end.

      maureen.churchill.9 - 2012-09-26 13:28

      He laundered your money, and that does not mean he washed and ironed it, it means he stole it. BUT, we must accept the findings of the court at this point. Does it not bother you guys that he wears the best clothes, eats in the best restaurants, will soon be living in a mansion, wears the most expensive watch, not to say he hasn't the best shoes. REALLY! can you honestly accept that. Nobody must poke him in the boep he will go brrrrrrrrr all the way to the ceiling.

      It's the general mentality of Malema's followers which mirrors that of their idol, so why get into a frenzy. The more publicity the idiot gets the more vote swings there will be towards the DA and hopefully this will be a huge advantage at the next elections. So, let him and his supporters carry on!

    They will continue to back him up even if he is convicted. Malema is promising them financial freedom and free land without them having to earn anything, they are lazy (for a lack of a better word) and want things given to them for nothing, they don't know what its like to be educated and to work or provide a service in return for wealth.(imo) Its much easier to blindly follow a politician that makes promises. I just wish they would wake up and realize they are being manipulated and used just to get him into power, just like Zuma did when he gave his supporters free chicken and T shirts.

      jurie.nel.3 - 2012-09-26 10:28

      Kgalema, what you are asking for is a return to values, for a return to the rule of law. I don't see that happening in Showerman's time, for if he steps down he exposes himself to the risk of being prosecuted on some 700+ charges - unless, of course, he "emigrates" to Zimbabwe first.

    They are all corrupt and therefore ever so outraged when their corruption is pointed out by equally corrupt opponents. Having accepted this as a part of life, even much of the electorate seems to be unconcerned about the actual thievery or their candidates "innocence" but rather with the hypocrisy of the opponent. It appears the best these ANCYL drones can hope for in life is to one day be in the pillaging of public coffers or at the very least scrounge some of the crumbs. That's very sad.

    This is all a conspiracy because Mr Malema is the advocate for the real citizens of this country who have been betrayed by the old leaders who have corruption running through their veins. And the colonial regime just looks just as bad, because their hatred for Mr. Malema which is fueled 90% by racism is blocking from realizing the truth.

      jurie.nel.3 - 2012-09-26 10:33

      Jaffea, if you really believe what you have posted, I feel very sorry for you. You are in for the rudest of awakenings when you find out that Malema is as corrupt as the most corrupt in the ANC - the difference is just that Malema has been shouldered away from the feeding trough, and is sore about it. In the meantime, brave hero Jaffea, sleep in peace.

      jurie.nel.3 - 2012-09-26 11:11

      Daniel, the government is not there to "support its people". Anyway - where does the government's money come from? From taxpayers, if you did not know. And it is there to provide services like defence, policing, roads and other infrastructure and TEMPORARY assistance for those in dire need. But what happens to R30bn (thirty thousand million Rands) per annum, which is over R119m per working day? It gets stolen or misspent by ANC cadres, according to the NPA.

      @Trust: If not paying tax, and using influence as an ANC official for financial gain in tenders and business constitutes innocence, then it is crystal clear why Zuma became president despite enquiries into his affairs. You know Zuma? Yes the one who could do no wrong, that Juju was willing to 'kill for', and 100% for? So defend him by all means, but PLEASE, when things go belly up again, do not blame the white man, the justice system, or the weather for defending those who put their own interests above those of South Africa's people.

    "Malema did nothing wrong".....How stupid are some people!! STUPID STUPID!!!! jUST AS STUPID AS YOUR DUMB LEADER TO!!!

  • mike.clery - 2012-09-26 10:37

    Nothing wrong? Innocent? Apart from this case, he didn't even contest that he'd evaded tax. Malema did not oppose the application by Sars. Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay confirmed the judgment against Malema for R16-million had been obtained. He told the newspaper the amount included unpaid taxes, penalties and interest.

    And the Malema road show rolls on....................

  • andrew.nkuna - 2012-09-26 10:38

    It will be very difficult for the state to find Malema & co. guilty of all the corruption charges against them. For starters, in as much as we all know Malema had an influence in all these tenders (the company) won but there's no proof at all. As a share holder (not under administration), he is entitled to all his dividends hence these payments he received. Just like Cyril Ramaphosa, Mathews Phosa....the list is endless, who are also shareholders in major companies. By now, you can rest assured that proper invoices have been prepared to account on all the payments made to his family trust. All they need to prove is whether he's directly involved or not..

      Did u understand the charges brougth againts juju(money laundaring)

      kswanepoel - 2012-09-26 11:08

      Once SARS is on your case, you have reason to worry! A warrant is issued when the NPA have all facts on hand! Malema obviously got back-hand deals and cash deposits into his various trust funds he started on behalf of his mother and son! How can he owe SARS so much money in taxes, build a house of millions and still drive a Range Rover and wear a Breitling on a mere R20,000 salary (from the ANCYL)? Face it, the whole Africa has shown once the Rebels are in power, they simply forget the masses and steal to enrich themselves, their friends and family! From Malema to the Unions all get huge amounts, but don't share it - yet they stand on rooftops, tell people to strike and cause havoc in our economy! People on the street should ask themselves "how have I ever benefited financially by supporting Julius or the Unions for that matter?"

      Andrew, you are probably going to be a very surprised man when the court makes its ruling.

  • Eric Mdudus Shaku - 2012-09-26 10:39

    The way i understand this supporter they say malema stole this money but why him alone taken to court,also they say he is right to steal because They suspect Zuma sons also commit corruption,if it is that so malema supporters do u think its good for bank robbers to rob because malema steal also?

      jurie.nel.3 - 2012-09-26 11:17

      Okay, Eric, I think I understand your point, but Malema is accused no. 10 in this case. The person occupying the position of president in this country can, by law, not be prosecuted. Once he is no longer president, he can be. This, I should imagine, is why Zuma so badly wants a second term.

  • lvhukeya1 - 2012-09-26 10:40

    i also knw dat pres MALEMA has done nothing wrong,,,,,,, i hate dat big headed headed thing we call a pres.

      jurie.nel.3 - 2012-09-26 11:19

      You may hate him all you like, but that does not give you the right to refer to Malema as president.

  • will.glibbery - 2012-09-26 10:41

    I'm sincerely sad to hear that Malemas supporters survived birth control.

  • sphala - 2012-09-26 10:42

    I repeat apparently....their is no power in this charge either evidence.

      jurie.nel.3 - 2012-09-26 11:20

      There are none so blind as those who WILL not see.

  • beki.khumalo - 2012-09-26 10:42

    It is interesting to note that Malema has only been charged with a schedule 1 offence: Money Laundering. In comparison to his business associates, it seems the HAWKS are not as confident with Malema's case. Money laundering also carries an up to 15 year jail sentence. Do I question the arrest? Yes! Do I necessarily think he's not guilty? NO!

      nhlakzile - 2012-09-26 10:56

      Thanks for such a beautiful comment! Sometimes I wonder when people start saying someone is not guilty, as if they really think he didn't do anything! But what you just said is a fact I also question the arrest which doesn't necessarily mean the man is not guilty! Well I guess it's one of those things! But people need to know that these type of battles won't ever stop! It's kind of sad that it involves money(a lot of money) well let the court rule, I really don't care what the outcome is because if they did it for Zuma then they might as well do it for themselves now! So it doesn't matter what we think anymore! Let's wait and see! Peace!

  • ivan.goodman.77 - 2012-09-26 10:43

    I would not celebrate so soon, this case is far from over, remember accuse no 1 is now our MR President and the scorpions are history. So watch the space.......!
