ANCYL mum on Malema's condition

2011-10-05 17:13

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema was admitted to a private hospital in Polokwane on Wednesday, the league said in a statement.

It declined to give details on his condition.

"The ANC Youth League will not take media enquiries concerning his hospitalisation, as we strongly believe that his health is a private matter, and should be treated as such.

"Members of the media are therefore humbly requested to not make enquiries concerning this, nor pry into the privacy of the president's health, because doing so is unethical, immoral and despicable," the league said.

The SABC reported earlier that Malema was suffering from "flu symptoms".

It said he would not attend his African National Congress disciplinary hearing in Johannesburg on Thursday. Malema was facing charges of bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing division within party ranks.

He recently said the league would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change, as it believed the government there was "in full co-operation with imperialists" and undermining the "African agenda".

Charged with him are ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi.

    Doctors are sure it isn't a brain tumor, as you need a brain for it.

      @ZUMA... Dear Mr. President. My advice to you is to simply do what was done in save yourself cut a deal with that "CLEVER MAN" Mbeki and you must nominate Mbeki to be the next President. The Wolves are at your door and they are circling you for THE KILL. Think outside the box....maybe you can still retain the Deputy President role if you follow my THE WOLVES are scared of that "CLEVER MAN" and used you to get rid of him. In this way you will show THE WOLVES your little finger and that you do know how to play the survival game. This can be your "umshini wami".....that you can use on your political opponents.

      RonJ, AIDS is totally manageable nowadays. If it is properly treated, it goes into total "remission" and has minimal effect on the patient after getting it under control. No matter if you wish this on him, it wont make any difference, even if it turns out to be the case. - 2011-10-05 17:29

      yeah, they serve 'blue labels' for flew symptoms

      But why a stay in a private hospital? Isn't public care good enough for Comrade Malema?

      GetitRight - 2011-10-05 18:00

      My friend...I suggest you sit down with Mbeki and have a chat. Mbeki was f@cken intelligent and he played a much larger game in global politics. People with pea brains just will never understand his level of thinking. But Mr. Mbeki was schooledby the British and the Russians which led to his downfall....."stick 'em in the back or if they challenge you knife them....this is Africa not the UK nor Russia....people follow you because you have good leadership skills, charisma and not because you are intelligent". When the wolves are hunting need a good wolf at your door. I hope you now understand.

      grimbie1 - 2011-10-05 17:28

      polo go join him in his private hospital. Have a chat about how he finds it and why he isnt in a public hospital. Also please ask him where he gets the money to able to go into a private hospital. Who knows maybe your perception will change a bit.

      Poloyatonki - 2011-10-05 17:32

      RonJ... Malema has more right to be in Africa than you, as a visitor you must watch your mouth...

      Thor - 2011-10-05 17:40

      Poloyatonki who the hell do you think you are telling other people to watch their mouths. RonJ is no more a visitor than you. Remeber your ancestors walked here from the north. Mine came here by boat (much more advanced than yours at the time.) So you watch your mouth until you learn manners. PS I too dislike juju he is an aragant criminal for this reason much less right to be in africa than most. I do not whish him well at all

      Poloyatonki - 2011-10-05 17:50

      Thor.. You ask who the hell am I, let me tell you... I am the guy who is an original African my skin color proves me right.

      JohnInAus - 2011-10-05 17:50

      Poloyatonki... re: RonJ, Please read the constitution, listen to the national anthem, then tell me why Malema has more right!!! ... Then apology to RonJ would be good... Of course freedom of speech allows for his 'expression'

      Very very soon...only if you log in via FACEBOOK will you be able to post comments. Wanna know why?

So soon all these rascists comments and those that break the law are going to have to face the law.

      Thor - 2011-10-05 17:56

      Ok Poly in other words my points stand. As you only bring race into the equation. So I say again learn some manners. Then come back here. Until then keep YOUR mouth shut

      Reason - 2011-10-05 17:59

      Polio your black skin does not prove that you have more right than anybody else to be anywhere - you are just a racist and take ownership of a country you never helped build and have no right to - you are an ANC zombie through and through. As for Malema.....thia is most likely just another delay tactic to avoid facing the consequences of his actions - as usual he is a loud mouthed coward. Hopefully his "flu symptoms" are serious and God has stepped in and done what is right because the Party in government doesn't have the ability or the courage to do what is so obviously necessary. I know of people who have been struck down by a virus which presents as "flu symptoms" and the person goes from healthy to dead within days, heres hoping for the sake of us all, even those that are so blind and worship this idiot. If he's gone I'm sure they'll find somebody else to follow and worship and forget all about this clown in no time.

      Felix - 2011-10-05 18:44

      Black people don't belong in South Africa - The Koi San where here first and then the White people, and way after that the rejects from Africa (Xhosa etc etc) came down to South Africa. The only "visitors" to south Africa is creatures like Poloyatonki/Malema/ZUma etc etc

      crackerr - 2011-10-05 18:46

      Back to basics. Citizenship entitles you to all the same rights and obligations attached to all other citizens in this country. Citizenship is the culmination of ALL that went before. Citizenship on its own and/or in combination with the country's constitution represents a culmination of all our individual histories and even fabrications and lies. We are here where we are. Some by boat. Some by foot. At different stages they arrived with all their baggage and different reasons. We are here and not one single individual with citizenship has to justify under any circumstances his / her presence on South African soil - OUR soil. It is time that it be made an offence to imply that some citizens are more entitled than others to the rights and obligations in the Constitution. When the Constitution was agreed to it wiped out the differences and guilt obsessions about the past. And that is how it will remain.

This is a decease you would not wish to your worse enemy!!You all should be ashamed of yourself if you utter these words. If I have to be honest, we as whites are looking for trouble by continiously insulting and uttering vulgar words towards ANC members and goverment. Yes, we do not agree with a lot of things that is happening and not happy with current crime and a lot of othere things. But continue to speak all these utterly disgusting words towards the leaders of this country, and one day ,just one day, someone will have enough of our insults and then turn their backs on us and let things be. Be careful what you all say and all the insults that you speak, one day it will come back to haunt you.

      White, Orange, Blank, Pink, Yellow.... Didn't that go years ago??? One Nation, how people express their concerns normally relate to previous traditional experience i.e. Have a shower after sex and get rid of AIDS. Challenging party members SHOULD be the norm, otherwise have one party (Communism comes to mind.... how strange). No where (unless I missed it) did anyone challenge the government leaders... The youth league would not even have a say if any other Political Party was in place (How many seats do they currently hold in government... Sorry couldn't hear you... how many)

    Said once a young man called Malema, Doc, I've got a dilemma. Don't worry son, just show me your bum, all you need is an enema. No doc, I don't need to empty my bowel, It's just that with people, I've fallen foul. Though I've shut my big mouth, few friends I have found, despite walking upright, knuckles off the ground. O woe is you, whose feelings aren't blunt, don't be concerned, if they think you're a runt. Perhaps you should follow the path your boss goes, get multiple wives, and a bone through your nose. Oh doctor, please help me, I'm in it again ! I've opened Pandor-a's box, to my shame. I've said nasty things, despite upping my game, Pray, could it just be, that I don't have a brain? O dear, my child, you're in trouble for sure, for what you have, I'm afraid there's no cure. You see, anatomically what exits down south, seems to be spilling, straight out of your mouth. O wretched is me, who in everything I fail, when will there be an end to this tail? Nobody loves me - I'm no holy grail, what if I even, end up in jail? Don't worry kid, many friends you will see, wear a skirt for your boss, and how happy you'll be. Let him sing 'shini-wami', to his heart's glee, you won't need a taxi, and breakfast's for free.

    he is on a fact-finding mission, to see if the private hospitals are breaking the law by providing better service than the 'nationalised' state hospitals...u might say he is an under-cover bloody agent...

    Seems Shabir Shaik an Julius Malema had the same mentor or is this "being sick" in the ANC handbook.

      You have to go jail first, then pull a Shaik.

    Most probably foot in mouth disease.

    It is a bit excessive to go to the hospital for flu symptoms. Hopefully he made use of our lovely state facilities. Actually he should queue at his nearest clinic in Alex. Maybe he is pulling a Schaik.
