Malema, fearing arrest, cancels mine speech

2012-09-27 15:54

Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema will no longer address Implats workers in Rustenburg on Thursday, for fear of being arrested, the Friends of the Youth League said.

"It has come to our attention that members of the SA [Police Service] were instructed by a politician to arrest us, since the mineworkers and event organisers were refused a permit to hold the meeting," the FYL said in a short statement.

Malema said on Wednesday that he would address the mineworkers at Impala Platinum's mine in the North West on Thursday to encourage them to demand higher salaries.

He made his declaration following his court appearance in Polokwane on Wednesday.

Last week, Malema was prevented from entering a stadium in Marikana filled with striking Lonmin mineworkers.

Police said this was because he was not a worker involved in the labour dispute that the mineworkers had gathered to discuss it.

      Yes Jellyarse. My comment "I dare you Julius" was also removed. News24's moderators are a bunch of c*nts. The best is not to comment at all on anything that happens on this piggy back site.

    Julius Malema is afraid. Well then, you don't hear that every day....

      BulletProof. - 2012-09-27 18:41

      Well,I will be afraid too. Is coming, time to pay,Moody's agency rate is down in SA and one of factors that contribute was malema and is Dady's ZoooMa!!!

  • nigel.vanysendyk - 2012-09-27 16:13

    now who is scared, I thought he said they can arrest him, now he changes his tune again, everyday he contradicts himself, just like he will change his tune 180 degrees if he ever gets his hands on power, he will turn into a dictator overnight.

  • talana.malherbe - 2012-09-27 16:17

    You who are going to jail because you steal poor people's money want to go and speak to people who suffer???? Imagine how the nearly R4m could have changed some people's lives!!! You are so twisted and two faced fat boy!

  • charlesmakgale.radingoane - 2012-09-27 16:19

    live Malema alone nextweek he will be on the news again

  • Spiral - 2012-09-27 16:19

    Malema needs to keep his nose out of everything that doesnt concern him... do us all a favour & take a long walk off a short pier!

  • jacques.smit - 2012-09-27 16:20

    Come one Malema, sure there will be KFC and sushi for you! You can do it... Go talk to you comrades.. We urge you to! :)

  • Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-09-27 16:22

    Julius Malema could pop a zit and News24 would report it. Nxa, sikhathele manje.

      jacques.smit - 2012-09-27 16:24

      I think its good to know how stupid he is... just shows more and more people how idiotic and irratic he is. He changes his mind more than his underware...

  • classwar.trotsky - 2012-09-27 16:23

    Stop using workers for your own ends. The Lumpenproletariat is a breeding ground for supporters of fascists and demagogues, just like Malema. The true socialists and communists can recognise this capitalist in sheep's clothing a mile away. Aluta Continua

  • henk.tredoux.7 - 2012-09-27 16:24

    No no no! He is not fearing arrest! He is acting on instructions of his lawyer! Trust an educated lady to point him in the right direction!!! I hope she does it for free? I wouldn't trust the money he is paying with!!!

      Erna - 2012-09-27 16:36

      Someone may want the money back!

  • bobo.jane.1 - 2012-09-27 16:26

    I once cought a big fat cat fish in a dam on my banana farm....Looking at this picture on N24 I can not help to notice some striking similarity..I eventually felt sorry for it and threw it back..Thinking there is your "Freedumb" but you will forever remain a slime eating fish.Nothing more nothing less...

  • mpho.c.moreki - 2012-09-27 16:27

    Malema's story is similar to that of Adolf Hitler,just under two years before he became German evil dectator.could he be our next South African dictator?watch the space.

      jacques.smit - 2012-09-27 16:30

      Here he will be taken out before that ever happens.. :)

  • charmaine.rowlands - 2012-09-27 16:29

    i can't stand this boy anymore.... someone freaking THROW him in jail and let's get it over with!!!

  • mike.down.5492 - 2012-09-27 16:33

  • Eric Mdudus Shaku - 2012-09-27 16:41

  • foxiloxi - 2012-09-27 16:48

    I have not even bothered to read this article, this is more to beg News24 to please please stop publishing everything that comes out of this twat's mouth!?!?! Please !!!!!! I am quite sure i am not alone in this sentiment!! Surely there are some intelligent journalists out there that can find real news because this codswallop that you all keep printing about julius is just that!!!!

      sagin.verity - 2012-09-27 23:57

      His white lawyer. Typical. he spews hatred about whites but when the s*** hits the fan he gets a competent white lawyer to do his bidding. Why? You dumb black fools

  • mawonga.mose - 2012-09-27 16:57

    Why juju didnt address the miners today!

  • joe.mangena.1 - 2012-09-27 16:57

    Those murdurers in Blue uniform need to be tolerated sometimes, because some of them want to be famous by killing our leader,\r\nOur leader simply avoided argueing with those menkillers.

  • B.b. - 2012-09-27 18:53

    No, Malema's appearance was irrelevant bcoz he was not going to tell the employees about how far they have gone as far as the negotiations to get higher is concerned, he was only going there to tell them that Zuma must be removed as President of which that's beyond the miners' scope of work lol lol lol he is not representing any union or commission...

  • michelle.h.koekemoer - 2012-09-28 08:18

    TYPICAL!! Self preservation, self enrichment, self propaganda before all else ~ wish these supporters would realise he is only in it for himself. If he was a real struggle hero he would go to jail or even die for his cause. In reality he is a big buffoon ~ all mouth and no heart!

  • glen.e.huysamer - 2012-09-28 08:22

    Malema should hire a stadium and invite the miners to his show, the ANC/Alliance not so great, fearing the power of one..... as the 'Lone -wolf' Malema bites at the ankles of the ANC beast this guy is doing more to bring down the entire house of corruption than all the opposition parties pasted together, while all those who bemoan him, can't actually see that this is what they were all once hoping for a hero that is doing exactly what Malema is achieving. As much as he is not liked by all the moaning 'mini me's', as much as we all should like what he is doing.... Viva Malema whose got the Bolls a straight spear which he uses to jab into that fat limp ANC beast slicing open holes so that the world can see the color of the demons corrupt cANCer riddled blood which is so fat it has to send out the soldiers in order to protect it's exposed back side from which the diarrhetic sh*t has begun to flow.
