No trips abroad for Malema

2012-07-03 18:08

Johannesburg - Expats in London hoping to see expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema could be disappointed, as he’s been advised by friends not to leave South Africa for now.

According to a report on, a paper for expats in the UK, Malema is set to be a guest of honour at “an exclusive networking event” organised by CMG and Base Africa at London’s Commonwealth Club next Friday night.

The entry fee to the event would have been £20, (about R255), the average going rate in London for lectures or speaking events of this kind.

It was originally reported that he would be there this Friday evening, but couldn’t make it due to a “family emergency”.

But Anda Bici from Friends of the Youth League, which has been organising many of the events Malema has addressed in recent months, said this was untrue.

“He is not going anywhere out of the country. We have advised him to stay in the country and fight the battles here. No trips abroad,” he said.

Bici added that Malema will be in Limpopo on Saturday.

Malema was billed to talk about “his extraordinary life, provide insight into his experiences with the ANC and his thoughts on South Africa’s past, present and future”.

    No export permit for malema disrupt the London circus for the SA expats.

      fred.murgatroyd - 2012-07-03 18:24

      Are they serious ?????? There are idiots out there who would pay money to listen to Malema ????? Now I know the world is beyond help !!!!!

      Squeegee - 2012-07-03 18:40

      England not stupid. No Visa! Try Harare juju.

      al.chemist.7106 - 2012-07-03 18:57

      Damn, I was willing to pay the £20 just to throw a shoe at him

      wesley.nel.5 - 2012-07-03 19:03

      Malema, remember "your bloody agent", and " your capitalist tendencies". Take that sucker

      azande.futhi - 2012-07-03 19:08

      Malema undoubtedly has something unique that attracts the world. I wonder who the hell is stupid between the world and SA.

      His advisers probably realised that his bs would be transparent to the educated audience in the UK. More like the talking ape show and lots of amusing newspaper headlines to follow

      You guys are obsessed about Malema news. Everytime there is a story about him, it ends up as the most read or most commented.

      atholl.hay - 2012-07-04 16:45

      I used to be an avid News24 reader and then I started spending time on other far more interesting websites where the likes of Julius Malema don't even exist. I'm so happy I have made the move!

      piet.strydom - 2012-07-04 23:32

      The thing is, GBP20 is not all that much to Britons. Much less than R250 for a South African.... Probably 7 or 8 beers, compared to nearly 20 beers in JHB.

This is an opportunity to hear Malema’s take on the economic, political, and social future of South Africa and how that will impact on the rest of Africa. Date: Friday 13 July 2012 Venue: The Commonwealth Club, 25 Northumberland Avenue, London, WC2N 5AP Time: 6pm-9pm Tickets: £20 - Available in advance and very limited E-mail Lloyd Musara to buy tickets.

  • nigel.vanysendyk - 2012-07-03 18:24

    hahaha, no one bought tickets or the UK denied him a visa & he is trying to save face by lying, but that comes naturally to him, he lies all the time

      liana.loots - 2012-07-03 20:13

      they would have kept him 3 weeks in quarantine

      no, the agents from within SA will assassinate him.

      glyn.morgan.96 - 2012-07-03 19:25

      Is Malema a Scientologist?

  • fairness.iseverything - 2012-07-03 18:35

    And what was the real reason... Visa declined, no interest, a poor attempt to establish international interest. Only suceptable to cult cultures would take this clown serious

  • melt.olckers - 2012-07-03 18:35

  • Jellyarse - 2012-07-03 18:53

    1. No Visa at short notice 2. No Visa for Commie Bastards wanting to enter the UK 3. No friend of Mugabe will get into the UK in a hurry 4. No short fat illiterates are allowed into the UK 5. Zoom-zoom's plane hasn't been bought yet 6. Who the fu*k would pay to see this Moron speak? 7. If he does happen to get round all of these obstacles, there's plenty of Ex-pats here who will gladly take him out of existence. 8. The Uk doesn't consider Political Asylum for Arseh*les who want to get out of going to jail!

  • grace.andtruth.77 - 2012-07-03 19:02

    Amazing how 'ex pats' will PAY to see the fat boy lol... But they fled the country because of the likes of people like him! As a tax payer I vote we buy him a ONE way ticket to whichever country tickles his fat a$$. They can have him

      Lacrimose - 2012-07-03 19:22

      Ex-pats just want to remind themselves of what they are not missing

      glyn.morgan.96 - 2012-07-03 19:30

      I suggest that Malema is sent to Mongolia.

      lynn.syme.1 - 2012-07-03 19:32

      You're a fool Grace. Nobody was willing to pay and that's why it's cancelled. Fat Boy was going to see ass.

      grace.andtruth.77 - 2012-07-03 19:36

      And its amazing how many ex pats are ex anc too! They won't live here cos of the crime and corruption. But they'll support the slimey parasites they put in charge. I don't think they should be allowed to vote

      kenny.liebenberg - 2012-07-04 08:49

      @Grace - Beleive you me, people who left because of the new government WILL NEVER BUY THOSE TICKETS! People who buy these tickets are probably people from news companies, just to make the ANC and the governments name @SS! SA is already clasified as a joke in the UK and Europe!

      tolene - 2012-07-05 15:58

      @Grace... when the last elections took place in London - the majority who took the day off and trained in from all over the country (as it was only at SA house in London) made more of an effort than many white south africans to vote, because many of us want to return to South Africa - but we can't... we are trying to come home desperately because we miss SA, but neither of us will get a job and not for lack of trying... The majority of the voters that went out of their way to vote (filling in form after form to register) were DA, and other parties - the ANC delegates arrived there after 2pm, the DA delegates were ready and waiting for the first people when they arrived at 6am - smiling, happy and engaging with everyone... THE MAJORITY OF EXPATS would vote for anyone but the ANC!! don't generalise. many of us left SA to go travelling, but it is difficult to get back into SA, I would give my front teeth to move home to be with my family!!!

  • Lacrimose - 2012-07-03 19:05

    Visa speculations aside, I find it interesting that his advisors were very happy for him to visit every failed state on the planet not too long ago. Highly suspect that they don't want him going any place that does work. We all know how porous his brain is, they could be afraid, he returns with a new set of unwanted tendencies.

  • Adrian - 2012-07-03 19:06

    Malema was billed to talk about “his extraordinary life" It was going to be an hour long show about what it is like to be a babbling 30 year old yooths born with no brain.

  • pieriewaaier.zooms - 2012-07-03 19:10

    I just love it! Two scenarios (i) & the most likely is that the interest by expats in London for this event ON A FRIDAY EVENING was miniscule! Show me 2 SA expats in the UK who would want to listen to a baffoon as Mal-Enema and I eat my hat! So, the event would have been a 'non-event', few people turning up (more if there was free boooze, of course, which would not have been Jognny Walker Blue, I can gaurantee you)So, in the end they just couldn't afford it because he was certainly not paying for his flights (at least business class, I assume) and acommodations (The Ritz?) for himself & his entourage. So, it would have been a disasterous PR nightmare and he would not have gained any credibility, low as it is at the momement. (ii) He is not a VIP in the UK & not even important so would not be surpised if his visa was either refused or could not be obtained in time. But by all means, do dream on! Cuckoo Land awaits you....

Maybe he should think of passing Woodwork first. He bankrupted Limpopo government and the poor province can't even afford middle school textbooks, whereas Malema is filthy rich

      boltonbarry - 2012-07-04 00:09

      Magomarele it is a travesty that people don't realize that about this man. What greater gift can you bestow on any African than literacy and a proper education. I wonder if the Limpopo government wants to keep the youth in that province uneducated so that they can be groomed to be nothing more than hard laborours in the Nationalized mines JUJU has planned for South Africa
