ANC hearings mean more disruptions - DA

2011-09-04 20:49

Johannesburg - Continuing to hold the ANC disciplinary hearings against its top youth league leaders at Luthuli House will lead to more "disruptive demonstrations" in Johannesburg, the Democratic Alliance said on Sunday.

"We can expect more mayhem that will disrupt businesses and threaten ordinary life in the inner city," DA Gauteng caucus leader Jack Bloom said in a statement.

"Last week two sittings of the Gauteng legislature were in danger of being cancelled because members had difficulty in accessing the building."

If the disruptions continued, it would be an "appalling victory for mob rule".

"Make no mistake, this type of violent street protest is a serious threat to democracy," said Bloom.

ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Masenogi are facing charges of misconduct.

Malema also faces individual charges of bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing divisions in ANC ranks.

    South africa is better off without this senseless ANCYL LEADERS ,why did it take such a long time for Zuma to realise that this boy malema is a threat to our democracy.South Africa is for both black and white. People must learn to live with each other regardless of color of their skin. Their is no difference between AWB and The top executive of ANCYL.We don't want to be drawn to the past, lets all stand up and fight this poisonous cancer creeping in our society which is spread by malema and his thugs.

      I am not pro ANC but I have to admit that Malema and his ANCYL makes the ANC look like an orderly, efficient run party. I have been pleasantly surprised by some of the comments and actions of the ANC with respect to the Malema dillema. Time will tell if they mean business for all citizens of South Africa, or if this scumbag spoilt brat racist Malema will lead South Africa into a very black - excuse the pun - future.

    Julius Malema vs Julius Caesar... same tactics make me wonder whether he could be a re-incarnate??!!

    The greedy and power hungry create the diversion called 'racism' whilst they continue to divide and conquer for their own gain. The people at the top are not divided by race. It has never truly been about race. It has always been about power and money. The poor need to join forces and stand up for their rights no matter black or white...

    Amazing how these IDIOTS have the "time" to go chant and protest in the streets, when they should be working. And if they dont have jobs, then why arent they out looking for jobs. Brainwashed fn idiots. Protest during the day, then at night, watch as the whole family starves because "daddy" and "mommy" were out on the streets participating in violent protests showing their "undying" support for an idiot with a peanut for a brain.....

      I think Dean, you'll find many of the protestors were young children who should have been in school, or young adolescents who haven't foudn jobs. Malema is popular with these 'hopeless' children because he is promising them jobs, or at least access to resources for for very little effort (nationalisations).

      Dean. Ok I'll forgive you. you are just thick. These people would be working if there were well paying jobs for them. By the way you write, I can see who has a peanut brain

    * The ANC should respect the wishes of citizens of our country who have a right to not have to put up with this type of behaviour. * If they don't, should there be any more destruction and monetary losses, the ruling party should be made to pay for the damages. * The Youth League should still be made to pay for the damage and destruction which happened last Tuesday - AND NOT WITH LOTTERY MONEY!

    But what is the DA doiing on ANC matters?????

      daaivark - 2011-09-05 11:17

      THINK. Their comment is on the effect these "procedings" that fail to proceed on the man in the street, which is NOT and ANC matter.

      Carl Muller - 2011-09-05 11:28

      This is a South African matter, and the ANCYL brought our whole country in disrepute.... When Malema sang Kill the Boer, kill the farmer before the world cup, 300000 people cancelled their airplane tickets to watch it here...... That cost us as a country millions and a lot a jobs.... It is more important for him to break down than to build up....
