Good riddance to foreign investors: ANCYL

2012-06-08 15:50

Durban - South Africa would welcome the flight of foreign investors scared off by nationalisation and expropriation, ANC Youth League deputy president Ronald Lamola said on Friday.

"We are told that investors are going to be scared away when we speak about the economy. Good riddance. South Africans will take over."

Lamola made the comments as he addressed the ninth national congress of the National Union of Metal Workers of SA (Numsa).

Land invasions

Lamola came under fire over comments he made on Tuesday that if white South Africans did not hand land over to poor blacks, there could be land invasions like those that took place in Zimbabwe.

He reiterated his call for section 25 of the Constitution to be amended, saying it was an impediment to the nationalisation of mines and the expropriation of land.

The call to nationalise was no different to the British government's 2008 acquisition of the majority of the shares of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group.

To thunderous applause Lamola told the delegates that the SA Constitution "was ours" and that "we brought it here".

Doesn't scare people

"The ANC must never apologise for wanting to amend the Constitution. We brought the Constitution to South Africa. It's ours. If there is an impediment, we must amend it."

A constitution that was praised around the world was no good if the majority of South Africans were living in squalor.

He said detractors' comments that ANCYL nationalisation and land expropriation calls would result in a Zimbabwe-like situation was not something that scared people who were living in extreme poverty in townships like Alexandra.

Referring to metal workers, he said that their professions were being controlled by whites.

"All the professions are controlled by the white man. This must come to an end. The state must intervene."

He said blacks had been admitted to the professions "for the sake of compliance", which was "a cosmetic exercise".

    It's like ANCYL was set up to produce idiots.

      Christelle - 2012-06-08 15:57

      OMG - we are going back to living in kraals. Dont these idiots realise money does not grow on trees. We need foreign investors!!!!!

      Adam - 2012-06-08 15:59

      The tail is wagging the dog again, the anc is too weak and divided to do anything.

      CharlesDumbwin - 2012-06-08 16:02

      HAHA, exactly right Twain. The ANCYL is the place where retards are put through retard school to enter ANC politics. What a bunch of absolute IDIOTS !!!

      Inkunzi - 2012-06-08 16:04

      I agree, is the ANCYL of the Idiots production firm? Nx...these people are going an extra mile to mess up the country our lost leaders fought so hard for...if the ANC doesn't do something about its youth wing, I foresee disaster after the NEXT ELECTIONS...ANC please JUST CLOSE THIS WING, it has FAILED both you and the SA youth, especial us the BLACK youth of this country.

      Its one thing to be stupid, but to announce it publcally is .. well, stupid!

      John - 2012-06-08 16:16

      They've perfected a production line of idiots. Meet Malema's understudy demonstrating how to speak out of your arse... There are intelligent (some) leaders in the ANC top stucture - surely even they can see how stupid ANCYL are. And if they say ANCYL are the ANC future leaders - OMG!!! They keep dropping IQ points.. ANC has Ancyl just to bring in the votes of the ignorant masses.

      Klippies - 2012-06-08 16:38

      pushka.vladovic - 2012-06-08 18:12

      Ag stop panicking people, this tit is just trying to see if he can be as controversial as that other tit Malema. They have no clue that what they are saying is damaging the country and the economy, the only criteria they use is "is it going to p*ss off the white man? if the answer is yes then they spew forth the biggest load of tripe that they can think of. Ignore the idiots just like you would immature children for that is exactly what they are, even at age 30 plus.

      Oistar - 2012-06-08 18:16

      Christelle - 2012-06-08 19:00

      Just to reiterate our point that some of our countrymen just do not grasp: under the business section of News24 their is an article - Zuma:-Business in townships needed. And what does he say...... The government would also use relationships with key partners in the world to take forward their support to small business to achieve economic growth. But we don't need foreign investors do we

      Benn - 2012-06-08 19:29

      Just a quick reminder that Julius Malema was not the only problem. Where did the ANCYL get this "brilliant" mind? There are thousands of them.They should use their heads as bricks- the only purpose they can serve.

      Benn - 2012-06-08 19:38

      Emonaija- I am still waiting for your explanation as to why Africans from all over the continent, including the corrupt military dictatorship of Nigeria,tried so hard to gain entry INTO SA under apartheid?Were they escaping conditions now being created by the racist, corrupt ANC regime? Europe in a mess? Indeed they are, but Africa is there as well and IN ADDITION Africa faces social challenges unsurpassed elsewhere. What is keeping the corrupt going in Nigeria? Oil and cocaine!

      darren.peach - 2012-06-08 20:00

      Man, Couldnt agree more. This makes my blood boil. Idiots..Idiots and did I forget to mention, IDIOTS !

      darren.peach - 2012-06-08 20:02

      I am so sick of these morons playing the Race Card. We are all in the same boat and we need each other to survive. IDIOTS.

      darren.peach - 2012-06-08 20:07

      The ANCYL is ordained by a higher power to be stupid ! I thought the yanks had it bad with the Republicans but the Youth League are a whole new kind of stupid....

      And they are so good at it!

      aristar.aristary - 2012-06-09 04:46

      If there is actually a brain controlling the ANCYL it is probably the same size and shape as Mr Zuma's dignity. The spokesman of the ANCYL is told what to say but doesn't have clue as to what he said. The government is like a Punch and Judy show, full of misdirection and prestidigitation. What are the politicians in the ANC actually doing while we get all hot under the collar about the idiot, noisy, misbehaving children of the ANCYL?

      Smell - 2012-06-09 05:27

      Is it me or does Lamola look exactly like Ben Johnson - the steroid dupe from Canada who had to give back his Olympic Gold medal? What are the "qualities" looked for in the ANCYL leadership nowadays. At least the DA does not have a youth wing brimming with AWB retards. Why are the senior leadership of the ANC not grooming educated and smart leaders for the future? Where are the young Mandelas and Tambos (lawyers)? Where are the Bikos (Medical Student)? How come the youth wing of our governing party is run by a succession of the mentally challenged?

      Andzon - 2012-06-09 07:19

      Wow, he thought that through - no Toyota's, no VW's, no BMW's, no Merc's - And thats just one industry group and the jobs created by it. Even the worlds superpowers belive in foreign investors - Calling him an idiot is an insult to true idiots, I'm suprised he remembers to stand & breath at the same time!

      Mark - 2012-06-09 10:02

      WOW... going from bad to worse.... these guys are a bunch of F@$&ing retards!!

      Kyle - 2012-06-09 11:43

      I'm convinced the ANCYL does everything in its power to get attention. It is a breeding ground for radicals who want civil unrest! PS. ANCYL - If you hit a girl because you like her like we use to do in primary school, it is not the appropriate method of getting her to like you back. Please stop an think about the words that come out of your mouth and the consequences thereof. Why are there never any consequences?

      Edward - 2012-06-09 13:31

      @martin.gardner.923 Your's is the attitude that fuels the Malema's and the Lamola's of the ANCYL. You come across as condescending and superior. It's this attitude that will cause them to say the "hell with the whites" let's take the country for ourselves because whitey doesn't think we can do run things. Yes Lamola's ideas will ruin SA's economy, yes there will be white and foreign flight from the country, and yes they don't care because they represent a group of people (those living in the townships) that are in extreme poverty. It would be great if white SA would show some creativity to addressing that poverty instead of insulting those people. I have a vested interest. Am married to a South African we have a house in Pretoria would love to come back for part of each year in retirement but that is a number of years away and don't want the country to go to hell before we get to do that. So, it would be a good first step for the DA to come up with a comprehensive land program. Maybe something like 1. Commercial farming mentoring program in conjunction with Universities. 2. Farmers who's children don't want to continue to farm take on a young farmer for say 5 years the Government and the young farmer pay the farmer for his farm over a period of years land now in the hands of a black South African who knows how to be a commercial farmer. 3. Create new farms by building desalination plants along the coast and pumping water inland. SA is a nuclear power continued

      Pushka, the trouble is uneducated youngsters listen and believe these twits. By keeping quiet the ANC is allowing a stinking sore to fester, and I hope they get flooded when it brakes open.

      johan.lombard.33 - 2012-06-09 15:43

      OMW! i am absolutely stunned at their ignorance! This is probably the dumnbest thing they have ever said! I thought Malema is an idiot, but it seems Lamola is even worse!

      I wouldn't say BIGGEST. But it's right up there amongst the top 10. Especially "He said blacks had been admitted to the professions "for the sake of compliance", which was "a cosmetic exercise"." This says more about the failings of BEE than anything else.

      Ryno, I'm convinced that the anc WANTS things stirred up in order to divert attention from its own shortcomings and if a few whites get taken out - well they were DA voters anyway.

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 13:54

      The ANC will do nothing. The ANCYL is the mouthpiece of the ANC and used when ever they want to take people's minds off their failures. Cele, Mduli, no jobs, no houses, no drinking water, no education, no schoolbooks, no schools, no toilets, lots of corruption, jobs for pals, etc, etc. So expect much more crap from the teenage crap swingers. They are here to stay.

They think owning land makes you rich, it s the hard work that makes you rich! Or in their government's case, stealing from everyone!

      anton.dubiel - 2012-06-10 14:14

      What i find remarkable is the widespread assumption that because of the end of soviet state capitalism , the only game in town has to be according to the rules of the neo- liberals, and anybody who dissents is automatically labelled as stupid. Does it thereby follow that the person doing the labelling is intelligent? Or merely an unconscious puppet of interests he has been brainwashed into believing are his own? Why should the majority of the people not determine the distribution of their own land, as is not done in Zimbabwe? As far as i can tell, South Africans are not Zimbabweans, and have a different situation and different conditions.In whose interests is it to always predict the worst, which has in fact not happened? Was it the personal intervention of the brave foreign investors between the opposing forces that prevented insane civil war? Or was it the spirit of a people that values life and humanity , even that of the despicable swine who lorded it over them so brutally and for so long?

      hadebe. i feel for you, you have been brainwashed by marxist ideology. the term " we demand economic freedom" should rather be " we demand everything for free"

      pravda.che - 2012-06-08 16:39

      at hadebe. you seriously got no clue what you taliking about. if you take away the international investors then you will end up worse than pre '94 south africa. no BMW, no mercedes benz, no audi, no ABSA, yes, absa is mostly owned by Barcleys of england. no more ATM's no vodacom, again mostly owned by a UK company, no fuel. you think the fuel companies are south african? so you will be buying your grocaries from a shack on the side of the street, becouse Spar is also foreign. wake up. we are in the 21st century maybe you have never heard of globalisation.

      Mitch - 2012-06-08 17:51

      @ Tamaranui. You have passed many "economic" comments so, please detail your so called "economics" experience. Where did you graduate? (Further, suggest you check your facts re tax in Australia before passing comment). I look forward to reading how you and your economic theory can explain to us how well TransHex (that state owned diamond mine)is doing!!

      Kent - 2012-06-08 17:52

      @ Tamaranui. We can not compare to Australia. It is like comparing apples with pears.

      Riaan - 2012-06-08 18:25

      Tiramisu Stanford!? LMAO You're just a troll with a superiority complex.

      Irene - 2012-06-08 18:42

      Tamaranui ~ Hamba! Voetsek!

      Irene - 2012-06-08 19:47

      Tamaranui ~ Shoot down an opinion? What a joke you are. Have you looked at how many people have given your comments the thumbs down and you want to shoot down somebody else's opinion. Arrogant prat! FOAD and do the world a favour.

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 14:04

      Tamaranui studied at Stanford New Zealand, it is a huge sheep station and he sat on the hill counting sheep all day. Ignore the idiot.

      Clive - 2012-06-10 11:58

      @Mitch: Trans Hex is not state-owned, the perennial loss-maker Alexkor is.

  • David - 2012-06-08 16:06

    Such a fool and also the people that applauded him that they don't even know when hatespeech is hatespeech. A fool like that brings divisions amongst societies. If wants to leave the country I would not hold him back. SA can do with less talkers and more doers.

  • Deon - 2012-06-08 16:08

    Were are the days that ANCYL leaders were mostly university graduates? These lot will even fail being sheep herders.

      CharlesDumbwin - 2012-06-08 16:09

      it's because the old guard valued their own education and had pride in themselves. these new ANCYL tsotsis are too lazy to even study. they will probably be demanding their degrees next too

      Retlaw - 2012-06-08 16:16

      University of Venda! Now you know Deon, put that in your pipe and smoke it!!

      JohncarlosBiza - 2012-06-08 16:17

      Lol university of Venda has the lowest quality of education in SA. Some of their degrees are not even accredited. I bet he took 7 years to complete his undergrad

      Jannie - 2012-06-08 16:24

      makatu, you made a funny! a degree from the university of venda... LOL

      Nyiks11 - 2012-06-08 16:25

      @Mpfanisto That explains everything then

      Michael - 2012-06-08 16:26

      @mpfanisto. What's your point? if he has a degree, you're not helping this moron - all this means is he has EVEN LESS excuse for the dung spilling from his mouth. He has a degree and STILL utters this crap? In that case, this man should be removed from society.

      pravda.che - 2012-06-08 16:41

      at makatu, university of Venda, is it a recognised university, or do they have vending machines for the degrees. BOY.

      nigel.burgess.52 - 2012-06-08 16:44

      The University of Venda? LMAO - well, explanation accepted then.

      Irene - 2012-06-08 18:43

      @mpfanisto ~ A degree from the university of Venda!! ROTFLAMO! What country is this so-called degree recognised in? Oh man, but you're funny, boy!

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 14:14

      Don't knock the Univeristy of Venda, while you are sitting in the sun, colouring pictures in your colouring book, someone is printing your diplomas in a back room. It is called ready while you wait.

    Goedige donner!!! Wie die hel dink die ancyl is hulle???? Hulle gaan aan asof hulle die heersende party is en nie die anc self nie. Die feit dat mens nie met hulle kan redeneer nie, want hulle 2 breinselle dink nie verder as vandag nie laat my bloed kwik! UUUUUUUUUURRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!

      Nicolaas - 2012-06-08 20:39

      @JP, die probleem is hulle het nie breinselle nie, wat nog te se van twee! My honde, jammer ( Sussie en Milo)dis nou my honde dat ek die skuim van die aarde in dieselfde asem moet gebruik, het meer intelligensie as die ANCYL saam!

  • Retlaw - 2012-06-08 16:10

    This is ignorance in it's finest form!

      Irene - 2012-06-08 18:45

      For sure. Every country in the world cries out for foreign investment but old bright spark Lamola wants to chase it away. Go figure!

  • Dax - 2012-06-08 16:10

    Me thinks all this nut job is trying to do is be more inciteful and radical then his brain dead predecessor, the original jelly totsi. He's trying to steal some of the limelight as he thinks it will propel him into some position of influence. He's no different to any troll we deal with on News24.

  • stanton.clarke - 2012-06-08 16:10

    This idiot again. While the west is so eager to attract foreign investors to their countries with the hope of adressing their "high unemployment rates", +- 12-14%, this moron wishes them away!

  • jason.mcdonahugh - 2012-06-08 16:10

    What scares me is not this idiots speeches and so forth, I find it very scary the number of people that agree with him and have no idea of the economic implications if these investors pull their money from the country so they just agree with him like mindless cattle.

      Jolly - 2012-06-08 16:13

      Keep your fridge full of cheese wena!!!!

      jason.mcdonahugh - 2012-06-08 16:19

      surely someone who makes a comment as stupid as that is not reading an article based around investment and economics.

      Irene - 2012-06-08 18:46

      Jolly ~ Hey wena, I've for a fridge full of cheese, filthy, mouldy, rotten cheese, just waiting for you ! When are you coming to get it?

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 14:17

      Irene, like usual you have forgotten to rinse your mouth.

  • gary.hope1 - 2012-06-08 16:11

    waaahaaa, frightening stuff! That's it, beyond any doubt, I now understand why the African Continent is a dust pit. God save SA! I must add that for years i was fooled into believing that the ANC has SA best interest at heart, but for the last couple of years I have begun to realise that it just cannot work, we will not be the exception on the continent, we will just follow suit over time. What a waste, we have the potential, resources and people to be greatest Country in the world but we have chosen mediocrity at best, and we cannot even pull that off. At least it's Friday, cold weekend, good sport on the telly, i will switch off and pretend that our country is not being gang raped whilst we watch on~

  • Erna - 2012-06-08 16:12

    How stupid can you be? Keep it up and you'll be suspended/expelled too!

  • Fanie - 2012-06-08 16:12

    It is just unbelievable, where do they find these uninformed, most likely uneducated self appointed stupid unreasoning people? It is like a National Lapoons movie without ending. The pride of the ANC? Most likely.

      Jacqui - 2012-06-09 14:19

      Fanie, can you really see an educated, well mannered individual feeling at home between this lot of losers?. Thus we are stuck with this lot, or rather the ANC is stuck with them. Small mercies, let's be thankful.

    if he understood how the global economy works, and realised that foreign investment is key to sustainable development, he would rather shut his trap, instead of canvassing votes by promising a free lunch to all the leeches.

  • yannis.verkes - 2012-06-08 16:15

    Yes... Damnit...dont we all hate foreign investors giving our country money?? haha ...ANCYL I would like to thank for our weekly dose of stupid....

    You are such an idiot, wonder what you will say to all these people who hang on your every word, when and not if, "when" they all starve of hunger as they listened to such an idiot like you, you should not be allowed to speak as brains elude you...
