ANCYL set to raise Malema issue

2012-12-19 10:43

Bloemfontein - The ANC Youth League is on Wednesday expected to pull the last card to try to convince the ANC to reinstall its former president, Julius Malema.

League national executive committee member Abner Mosaase confirmed on Wednesday that the league will raise the issue from the floor during a plenary session of the ANC’s national conference in Mangaung.

“We haven’t identified anyone to speak yet, but we will raise it,” he said.

Last hope

The conference is Malema’s last hope for reinstatement, but after the overwhelming re-election of President Jacob Zuma, Malema’s arch-enemy, the chances of sympathy from the delegates are slim.

Malema and suspended league spokesperson Floyd Shivambu wrote a letter to conference this week asking to be reinstated and hinted at court action if this didn’t happen.

Mosaase said if the league’s appeal to the ANC’s conference was unsuccessful they would elect new leaders. This would require a special conference.

A league leader said it was unlikely that the ANC would disband the league as had been threatened in the past. “We have a good understanding now,” the leader said.

When Malema was expelled the league said it would defy the ANC and not appoint an acting president, but a few weeks ago ANCYL deputy president Ronald Lamola had a public fall-out with Malema.

Lamola has since labelled himself acting league president.

      These men are not boys and they are all criminals coz they stealing from the people

  • mmoledis - 2012-12-19 10:55

    What goes arround comes arround,he was the man behind removal of former president Thabo Mbeki so he is too removed let him drink his own medicine,ANC should not allow that man back to the party because he is a wolf in sheep cloathing,he is a chameleon if can be allowed he will again show more his colours again like he did before and then,how can he be allowed to his post as ANC youth league president,he can not work with a president whom he said he can not write so he must go to a party where there are presidents who can write. Allowing Malema back to ANC will be like puting an undetonated bomb in a house or weapon case again and is dangerous as it can explode any time and cause more harm and injuries to all those who will be next to it by then,which will be ANC if they will allow Malema in the party again.

      annalene.nel - 2012-12-19 11:39

      Mmoledis, how is it possible that you realise how dangerous Malema is and so many others think he is God's gift to the poor. I am pleased that Zuma was re-elected for only one reason : he will make sure that Malema is not coming back for at least the next 5 years - he is a dangerous man which SA can not afford to have in any influencial position, hope he rots in jail.... bastard !

      thabang.bonang.7 - 2012-12-19 12:41

      What did Malema do so wrong that He should be thrown into the wilderness by the movement that has been His life? If all members in the ANC were clean maybe I would understand.

      thabang.bonang.7 - 2012-12-19 14:05

      @fed up taxpayer, my reply - - Mbeki was recalled by the new leadership of ANC elected in Polokwane. - Quote where He called for blood. If you are referring to freedom songs, even Zuma during His presidency sang songs that relate to chasing whites away. E,g. Before one of His speeches He sang "Ma bauyeke umhlaba wethu. Lyrics, We blacks cry for our land which was stolen by whites, let them leave our country. The same song was sang in Mangaung during 100th celebration - He has not been found guilty of any corruption, innocent until proven guilty. - If you have to speak of His good lifestyle then you have to do the same for all other people including Zille, Zuma, etc. All politicians will have to all hand in their riches as they all claim to fight for the poor. - Show me proof that He wants to come back because He wants to avoid court case.

      prudencemantu.thulo - 2012-12-19 18:44

      I would agree wit u more, malema is a danger to the ANC nd the country, I dispice exp the youth who follows him, his incompited to lead the youth nd is a deadly poison to the future of children

  • osmaseko - 2012-12-19 10:56

    This is the end of Malema, unfortunately he dragged down many people with him I.e. Tokyo, Mbalula, Phosa and the former deputy President Mothlanthe. They were too blind to see it.

      sandy.langenstrass - 2012-12-19 11:25

      @osmaseko....YES, you hit it right on the button...pity we lost Mothlanthe, he was silly to show support for a man who has disgraced himself, like Malema glad osmaseko, that you my friend are wise to recognize this.

      cathy.paul.1447 - 2012-12-19 12:03

      Yaah! you are right, the wind just blew them off and right now just wondering around and hope will be a lesson to other people

      sexyfancyface - 2012-12-20 06:55

      True it is his end. The problem with Malema he had too many false sympathisers. You can't fight with JZ and win. Malema is a small boy. The likes of Zuma were in intelligence for many years and they know all the right strategies brainless as they are according to Malema. I mean Zuma let him rip the finances of Limpopo and he was still ungrateful and his strategy was to recall Zuma and then have Mbaks as SG and then somewhere after 2019 he was to become president of the country. In politics every move you make should be calculated. You cannot afford to be careless like he did. I mean he could be enjoying his billions if he had been careful not to bite JZ's hand.I love how things turned out it proves JZs'words that no one is above the ANC and this elephant called the ANC will trample you if you are tjatjarag and a bloody agent.Malema committed too many crimes infact he made himself the president of the country thinking Zuma was stupid and he never inquired about Zuma.Those who know him will tell you that he is a nice man very nice but he is a smooth operator.But how many times did Zuma say I don't bother myself about that one and we thought ohhh Zuma must be careful.The bible says in all yenza sengathi abanye bakhulu kunawe meaning humble yourself.Malema thought he was Mr everything,he doesnot know one single thing about intelligence.Mbalula forced Malema on the Youth League his rise to power was fraudulent in the first place and oh oh it boom boomeranged!

  • marilyn.docherty.9 - 2012-12-19 10:57

    Surely Juju should be more worried about his up coming court case, or is he planning to head a criminal branch of the ANC from behind bars??

      george.frangs - 2012-12-19 12:33

      Thats why he's begging to be let back into the ANC, so these charges can just magically dissappear.

      graham.horn.505 - 2012-12-19 12:11

      How can you talk about democracy when you are clearly undemocratic? In case you don't know, democracy means that people vote for whoever they want to. Ever heard of a multiparty democracy? Without multiple parties, the word "democracy" has no relevance. You are obviously just a black racist.

      heinrich.etsebeth - 2012-12-19 14:08

      By healing the wounds and being united you will destroy the factions within the ANC. That however leaves one issue for the ANC. They will not exist any more.

      smangaliso.nkosi.35 - 2012-12-19 14:53

      Oom George, it's evident you got the message across...even with my spelling mistakes. I am taken seriously (believe me) by people who understand that learning and education is not just getting the english grammar 100%. I did 4 languages up to matric...Siswati, Mathematics (yes it's a language!), English and Afrikaans. I continued with the Mathematics up to 2nd year university beacause I value it as one language we should strive to get it right if we want to move beyond information age. We have other languages demanding our special attention other than English... I'm certain you will never get Siswati grammar correct but I will not undermine you based on that.

      george.frangs - 2012-12-20 10:36

      Thats great Smangaliso, I'm very happy for you. You fight for those other languages, and I'll continue the fight for correct English.

      mduduzi.nkosi.733 - 2012-12-31 15:00

      Mbuso I can understand yo concern the enemy is not ANC bt few corrupt elements within,the solution is vote DA 4 westrn cape,UDM 4 eastern cape,COPE4 free state,NFP4 kzn then you see south rising.

  • carl.debeer.52 - 2012-12-19 11:00

      moses.m.masilela - 2012-12-19 11:28

      @francois, South african politics sucks without Malema and you know it. No one understands the poverty of africans like Malema does, that's why he has won the hearts of the poor people in this country and he gives them the hope to live and a hope of a better future by calling on the mines to be nationalized and for lands to be shared equally. Malema is always there when he's needed. He defends the ANC

      asdhasgd - 2012-12-19 11:36

      FOR WHAT??

      clive.toerien - 2012-12-19 11:52

    Ja,ja Mbuso dream on. Electing Zuma for another term was another mistake by the ANC they are driving members to join the DA leaving behind your beloved ANC. Surely Malema is a bit old to be considered youth league potential or is this his last pathetic author at finding support somewhere.. Malema is no match for the DA, he is just another washed out petty thief. Find yourself a new comrade for your never ending struggle!

      helen.watermelon.16 - 2012-12-19 12:24

    Malema must get a life. we tired of this clown and his friends who think they are special. We cant have a member who has a capacity to insult the president in public platforms to gain symphathy.Malema is a product of his decisions akaphile nawo
