Malema to oppose bankruptcy application

2013-02-01 09:28

Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League president leader Julius Malema will oppose an SA Revenue Services (Sars) application for his sequestration, his lawyer said on Friday.

"I can confirm that we have been instructed to oppose the application," said Nicqui Galaktiou.

According to papers filed in the South Gauteng High Court in Pretoria this week, Malema owes Sars R16m and is "factually insolvent and in no position to make payment of his indebtedness to Sars".

Sars reportedly said in the paper that discrepancies in Malema's representation of his net assets were not conducive to concluding that he had made a full and frank disclosure, and supported its contention that "it would be to the benefit of Malema's creditors to sequestrate his estate".

If the application succeeded, all Malema's properties - including his house in Sandton, and his house, smallholding and farm in Limpopo - would be placed under curatorship and auctioned to cover his debts.

The hearing is scheduled for February 27.

    When is Zuma going to be sequestrated for his failure to pay taxes?

    Eish, this poephol wants to go down in flames. Good, but take some people with you please.

    Shame the man is definitely a born fool. He should pay SARS with the sale of his flashy vehicles, designer clothes, lavish residences, etc. and move on. Yes he might feel like a leper but he must start his own party soon[not that I will vote for him at anytime]that way he can assist in weakening the ANC power come next elections. Waiting at the door of the ANC is stupid cause for him it will never open. Give the man his due though, he is an excellent orator and people with that ability should be contained. Hitler too was an excellent orator and look at what he did to the Jews.

      Ah, the problem come in, where in fact, all the cars and houses are bonded/owned by a finance house - so selling them, will not raise capital for Juju, merely pay off a debt. The receiver has found that juju's liabilities (debt) exceeds his assets, and thus, Juju has WAY bigger problems than trying to sell off a car or two.

      isabel.w.stokes - 2013-02-01 19:46

      I agree with everything you say except that he is a good orator. He can barely string two words together. However he has enriched the English language with the phrase: "Bloody agent!"

    hope they take everything from him. screw everything else he done, he deserves this just for ruining the settlement in Mamelodi which was instated to replace the one damaged by the burst waterpipe, all looked great until he stopped the project & walked away, now it is a shambles!

  • mike.shaw.35513800 - 2013-02-01 10:18

    So he has money to pay SARS?

  • hamilton.tspoon - 2013-02-01 10:19

    Watch out Juju, in two years you will be looking for a job. I smell you driving taxi bro. Not only because of SARS but your lawyers will have finished all your savings if you don't look out.

      PB - 2013-02-01 10:25

      I think his lawyer is still dreaming that loverboy will somehow get all his magical powers back and send powerful PAYING customers her way.... Nicqui babe, I won't hold my breath if I were you.

      SnowHonkey - 2013-02-01 10:31

      That is if he's not in jail by then

      joanie.nagy - 2013-02-02 07:12

      I wonder if he has a valid drivers license? Always been driven around in big fancy 4x4's and blue light brigades!! Very smart indeed.

  • raymond.khwela - 2013-02-01 10:28

    I don't feel sorry for Malema he got what he deserve he tink he was powerful n untourchable n insulting elderly like no body business..look at him now.

      markjack.deppe - 2013-02-01 18:25

      Yes Malema made mistakes big time, Trust me I am not a fan of this guy. I just argue that as much as he deserves to be tried, so do our President and many others in the ANC. But because that is not happening it is definitely sending out mixed messages.

  • gcj.wood - 2013-02-01 10:31

    Judge - Mr Malema, do you have any money? JuJu - Err no, Judge - Then you're bankrupt? JuJu - Ja, no, Eish!

  • sifiso.sosibo.10 - 2013-02-01 10:36

    It doesn't rain it pours in Jujuland!

  • mike.matshaba.7 - 2013-02-01 10:39

    Doesnt he have an account in switzerland just like the many of them(anc Top Dogz)? The guy is falling apart bit by bit and his misfortunes are piling up by the day. By the way each Dog got its Day.

      markjack.deppe - 2013-02-01 18:27

      I don't think Malema is as stupid as what he would want us to believe. I most certainly believe he has a Swiss Bank Account, By the way, how is he paying his legal fees ??

  • thizatouch - 2013-02-01 10:53

    Through it all and and he still doesn't know when to stop digging himself a grave..dig on JuJu, your stupidity knows no bounds

  • kg.mashile.37 - 2013-02-01 11:47

    Nothing rong with Juju opposing bankruptcy application, It's his constitutional right to do so!stop making noise like township dogs u stupids coz u dnt hv balls!

      malopesandhislebeloane.matlala - 2013-02-02 07:44

      U upset me mr mara ur also stupid like malema this is mzanzi u ediot we need education

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2013-02-01 11:59

    Strange how they want to kill the Boer but always run to white lawyers. Don't they trust their brothers competence?. Besides where does he get the money from for high flying lawyers?.

      xolanit.ntuli.9 - 2013-02-01 16:39

      My man there is connotation of race in your words, besides lawyers are bought remember they don't serve for mahhala. However it is not raining but pouring heavy storm in Malema,s world, no pity from me.

  • devin.corney - 2013-02-01 12:37

    *CRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACKKKK* That's the thin ice breaking up under your feet, FAT BOY!

  • mapepaki - 2013-02-01 13:02

    Bye bye, join the poor people you and the rest were supposed to serve and give a better life to. Seeing that R90m has been given to Mali pehaps the SARS can earmark this for poor housing.

  • don.mug.3 - 2013-02-01 13:13

    Juju RIP!!

  • thami.khulu - 2013-02-01 13:41

    But Malema is still richer and more relevant than a lot of people who are celebrating this article.

      tshireletso.khunou.5 - 2013-02-01 21:37

      malema might have made mistakes,bt he is stil a human being.dnt judge hm

  • johann.vanvuuren.73 - 2013-02-01 14:06

    So my question would be, how is he going to pay his legal fees when he ” factually insolvent and in no position to make payment of his indebtedness to Sars".

  • MoshKaDeph - 2013-02-01 15:14

    First i don't like Mr Malema. But if he owes SARS R16m in 3/4years, it mean in that period of time he made a lot of wealth for him self. Is either he has more money somewhere or all this SARS thing is politically influenced.

  • taryn.wilhelm.5 - 2013-02-01 15:16

    As is he should be in jail?!!!!

      cazzie.dejager - 2013-02-01 22:34

      Taryn, I totally agree but I doubt we will ever see the day he is placed behind bars. Problem is he knows too much dirt to the rest of the government for then to risk putting him away. Just like Sheik, Selebe the inside of a prison cell will never see the likes of these people. New Mac Maharaj is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Are any of them NOT corrupt-i don't think so.

  • oliver.lankes.3 - 2013-02-01 15:55

    JA Juju, the gloves are off

  • jeffrey.masemene - 2013-02-01 18:14

    Mfana wa sedladleni, I watched you with interest when you grew in South African politics.But now, I am watching with disbelieve and fear when I see how you are torn apart. I wish I could help, but I am afraid mfana wa semzini. Sorry, I am afraid.Take it like a man like you always did.

  • Johnson - 2013-02-01 19:42

    after his legal fees to fight SARS he might just as well concede now that he has less friend willing to give up their wealth to bail him out as there will be no return for their efforts. You have many friends when they can get something out of dealing with you - his role is no longer one that can make things happen - so its will get ever more difficult for him to throw money after his pursuers with farming income from cash crops

  • makgabo.morris - 2013-02-01 19:45

    I think this thing of sars is a political influence.

      cazzie.dejager - 2013-02-01 22:28

      This has nothing to do with politics. If you owe SARS you pay SARS, cos they make sure they get what is due to them regardless. If they must auction off you property that is what they will do.

  • sizwempho.sithole - 2013-02-01 20:11

    malema is becaming a robary why mara

      louis.scholtz1 - 2013-02-01 21:18

      Hahahaha you idiot! You are the true example of an illiterate git. If you can't speak English keep your hole shut!

  • saidor.rhatinga - 2013-02-01 23:43

    malema mst pay n de others mst py too

  • younghova.hova - 2013-02-02 09:38

    malema is nt the only person in sa who owe's SARS, every1 owes sars,i also owe sars bcoz at work i'm nt registered so they dnt tax my salary!

  • vivian.harris.73 - 2013-02-03 01:23

    What I can't understand is how he owes SARS millions and yet he is walking around freely. If that was me or any other person, I'd be doing time for tax evasion.
