Malema defiant in Cape Town

2012-03-17 10:23

Cape Town - Embattled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema says while juniors should respect seniors, this must not dictate the policy of an organisation, according to a report on Saturday.

The Weekend Argus reported him as saying that they had been "judged without any consideration" from the African National Congress and had been treated as they had leprosy.

"In the 80s there was a time when the ANC was effectively dead, and many leaders won't admit to this. But it was the youth who got impatient with the older leaders, and this led to the creation of the youth league and the ANC was revived and fought the regime," he was quoted as saying.

Malema was addressing a cadre forum at the Khayelitsha Resource Centre in Cape Town on Friday night.

According to the report, hundreds of his supporters, wearing their trademark berets, waited hours for him to arrive.

A throng of police in body armour surrounded the building. A fracas broke out when ANC supporters arrived to taunt his supporters with banners bearing the messages "Free us from Juju" and "We stand by the NDC decision".

Malema said the ANC had charged youth league leaders before even meeting them.

"They don't know the youth league, or their role. The only time they get to know us is when they see us on TV," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

Malema is currently appealing against his expulsion from the ANC after its national disciplinary committee found him guilty of sowing divisions in the party and bringing it into disrepute.

    What a sad and vitriolic person this man (sorry idiot) has become. Every time he opens his mouth vile utterances come forth, first it was the farmers whole stole the land, then the whites in general for having built up business now his own senior people. Really all he is doing is spouting disharmony and not endearing himself to the good people in this country. Malema go farm with your cows and stop causing this country more harm.

      Shirley - 2012-03-17 11:18

      Thats bad news for the cows!

      Sharon - 2012-03-17 11:37

      If he is as good at milking cows as he is milking the system, he might turn out to be an excellent farmer.

      sandy.langenstrass - 2012-03-17 11:39

      I think maybe the poor cow's might even have a problem with Malema.

    What is this little cockroach doing in Cape Town? Shoo! Shoo! Away with you!

      Moyo - 2012-03-17 15:36

      Apartheid has put blinkers on your eyes! You are used to following that you cannot make your own analysis. This guy is not educated but he believes and he has the guts to stand up for it. Thats the main reason why business people and in particular most white people dont like him. He is one person who publicly sees and talks about the inequality in SA, which is a sad reality. Land and mines are a sensitive issue to most poor people and that cannot be ignored. The truth is that he is a big threat especially to most white people so they dont like him. Thats why the media tries so much to bring him down, they have created an impression that he is the biggest dummy on earth. If you really want to see that he is not, look for the bbc hardtalk video and the video he was engaging the DA lawyer on the "dubula ibhunu song court case". Grow up people and shake off racism, its toxic!!

      maseratifittipaldi - 2012-03-17 16:18

      Moyo : Race has nothing to do with inequality. Understand this. Is Malema Black? Is he poor? Are most of our politicians White? Are they rich? Are the black ones poor? Racism and politics is the problem. Malema and his followers are in the middle of this.

      Fika - 2012-03-18 07:42

      "cockroach"? Mmm...

      TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-19 10:48

      Moyo - One day you will realize that the very ppl you despise the most are the very same ppl that you could work with to solve your problems. We are ALL south africans some are just more race orientated than others.

  • steveroodt - 2012-03-17 11:17

    Malema took longer than usual to complete secondary school, graduating at the age of 21 from Mohlakaneng High School in Seshego, Limpopo; he failed most of his subjects.[12][13][14] In 2010, Malema completed a two-year diploma in youth development through University of South Africa (UNISA). He is currently enrolled at UNISA for a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications and African languages What are you trying to imply Mr Melema because you were born in 1981 March the third and the Ancyl was formed in the Eighty's the Ancyl belongs to you and it was your efforts that got the A.N.C into power. Most marbles have color in them. a few and may i say a small minority are full of emptiness Just an empty void and may i say if you were a marble you would unfortunately would be the latter

      Fika - 2012-03-18 07:47

      education should never be used as a yardstick of success. most of the "successful"people I know do not have diplomas, certificates and let alone degrees...Richrad Branson, in case you want to argue.

      Terry - 2012-03-18 10:55

      @Fika - I am sure that most of us don't see too many similarities between JuJu and Richard Bransons - so why don't you elaborate! Richard Branson is an enterpreneur and has created an empire - JuJu is a tenderpreneur and want's an empire ....... that's not the same thing!

      Brendon Robb - 2012-03-18 11:59

      Fika so what you are implying is that , I'm a passenger on a plane but the pilots are not qualified to fly it? So next time if you fly think about that! See how you gonna feel!

      TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-19 10:51

      Actually I agree with Fika. Education does not equate to success. Some of the most educated ppl are street cleaners, in fact just the other day I got served by a waitron with a degree in physics. The reality is though, that what you do want is the most capable candidate for the job and sadly I have not seen those types of qualities in Mr Malema.

      Merven - 2012-03-19 11:44

      Mentioning Branson, the guy is very intelligent, that is a what Malema can not claim.

  • Paul - 2012-03-17 11:22

      Hey thabo, get you sayings right, to much bacon this morning dear boy, the fat goes right to your head.

      maseratifittipaldi - 2012-03-17 17:47

      Shame, Thabo. Maybe you can tell us what this economic freedom is that the cockroach is squeaking about.

      John - 2012-03-18 04:24

      @Thabo, I've been reading some of your comments on your FB wall, you still don't know how to use the spell checker, but apart from that you are one seriously sick puppy.

      Merven - 2012-03-19 11:46

      @maseratifittipaldi : Thabo is too dumb to start his own business, and don't have the ANC contacts to get a AA deal, so now he waits for Malema's 'Economic Freedom' so that he can steal what he wants.

  • rory.short1 - 2012-03-17 11:33

    He clearly causes division in the ANC. This is plain for anybody to see even himself surely.

  • Zinhle - 2012-03-17 11:38

    I don't have time for Malema. Let's talk about anything else meaningful.

      Tsole Mokone - 2012-03-17 11:48

      cape town belongs to those who born from the root of african---with Malema we go where ever we want to...ANC is youth-like it or not,we will say what builded south africa in the past...

      David - 2012-03-17 12:13

      @TsoleMokone, i thinks youd musted goes backs to the SCHOOLS and asked for the refunds of yours money. Can you people please learn how to spell and put your sentence in the correct sayings.

      phillip.havenga - 2012-03-17 21:38

      Tsole hush you are only making yourself and this idiot Two Planks Malema look worse.

      TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-19 10:53

      Tsole - the entire human race is from the root of africa. whats your point?

      Merven - 2012-03-19 11:50

      @Tsole: maybe you should've paid more attention at school, then you wouldn't have to wait for 'Economic Freedom', you could've started your own business instead of stealing it from someone else.

  • Scouter - 2012-03-17 11:42

    If anybody came up with a degree course on 'Shooting Yourself in The Foot' Malema's antics would represent mandatory 101 reading.

  • Jacqui - 2012-03-17 11:45

      as long as you have a big mouth that has no limits you can claim your youthfulness till retirement i guess.

      I Agree... Economic Freedom in our lifetime"... but that depends on how quick you can get a meaningful education. Ever wondered why so many people that come into loads of money (like winning the lottery etc) soon end up bankrupt? They don't have the skills to manage it! You STILL need an education even if you want something for free..

      TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-19 10:56

      Thabo - With the ANC at the helm of this country the only way you will achieve economic freedom in your lifetime is if you live to 500.

      maseratifittipaldi - 2012-03-17 13:20

      Thabo : If you can tell us what you mean by economic freedom, perhaps we can support you.

      Karen - 2012-03-17 13:44

      maserati ... thabo means equal access to resources so everyone can share equally in the wealth of this country - due to the past and it's legacy, there is still no equality for a large part of our population. I dont like juju, but the issues that he raised (not the way in which he raised it), is very relevant and it is not going to dissappear with him - they are issues which will have to be addressed sooner rather than later, as the youth will become even more restless and later on even more militant as their frustrations grow, unfortunately a large part of juju's supporters are also uneducated and dont have the knowledge or means to help themselves out of the shackles of their situation - in stead of always pointing a finger, lets rather think about how life is for most people in south africa

      maseratifittipaldi - 2012-03-17 15:50

      Good. Karen, thanks for answering on behalf of thabo. I understand the emotions and the sentiment, but could we analyse the facts? You say : "equal access to resources so everyone can share equally in the wealth of this country" For me to understand better, we need to : (a) List the resources referred to and define "the wealth of this country" (b) Indicate how these resources are accessed by people on the basis of (i) Nationality (S. African or non S. African) (ii) Age group (iii) Qualification (iv) Financial transaction (v) Political influence. Examples: Should we make mining resources available to South Africans of the age group 10 to 20 with matric qualification free of charge? Should we distribute shares of KFC and Mc Donalds equally amoungst all South Africans? Should we allocate profits generated by Imperial Crown and Chancellor House to all South Africans over 60 years of age on an equal basis? Should we allocate all agricultural land to anyone belonging to or supporting the ANC irrespective of age, qualification or agricultural ability? It will be very nice if someone can actually define economic freedom and indicate clearly how anyone is excluded from economic activity other than through the so-called "affirmative" action and BEE policies.

      sandy.langenstrass - 2012-03-17 21:12

      Every time you ask a Malema supporter, to explain what they mean by economic freedom...none of them have an answer...WHY?.... because all they hear JM say is "economic" (this word they figure has something to do with money)...the truth is, they have not the faintest idea what he means.....THIS IS WHERE we have a concern...they will give Malema undying support but don't even know what his intentions are..SCARY....

      Merven - 2012-03-19 11:54

      @Karen, wake up girl, never had Malema said 'equal access', he only indicates them taking everything for free.

      maseratifittipaldi - 2012-03-17 23:23

      Samuel: Well then, just give us an example. "We want economic freedom like they have in...Zimbabwe, Zaire, DRC, Kenya, Somalia,Ethiopia, Malawi, Nigeria, Siera Leone..." or whatever. Then just tell us what is stopping you. Once we know, maybe we can help you.

      margaret.haslewood - 2012-03-18 13:34

      @ Samuel: So I gather you want a fabulous leader like Malema to give you a new car, a new HUGE house, a fabulous job that pays you big money, the lifestyle like colonialism gave white people. Are you ready to pay taxes on that huge salary to help buy Malema a new house, sorry palace and his new cars and lifestyle? Oh sorry, I forgot, help give the same as you "GOT" to the millions of people still in poverty? Oops, we also need to look after roads, hospitals, electricity and so on. Unfortunately the economic lesson that I received at a very young age was: Work hard at school and at home, respect your elders and work hard in the job that you have. Look after it like it is the most important job in the world. You WILL climb the corporate ladder but it takes time. Hard work = better living standard. The world is your oyster now, dont blow it on backing someone like Malema. He will look after himself first and you will get the dregs. He will stop educating the masses because NO education = blind followers

Further more, are you in line that his utterances are by any means racially inspired to serve his own personal agenda, at the expence of the poor masses, whom have not gained a single inch of grounds since his fame to riches commenced 4/5 years ago? Lastly, if the Western Cape Province does not welcome his presence, I think it best to give him some of his own medicine. Suck on this Juju, you and your blinded followers.

    @Simnikiwe Ntingi I see u are fighting an uphill but courageous battle on this forum. U are dealing with people who understand neither South African politics, nor the law in terms of a mere internal and perfectly assailable ANC NDC decision on one hand and on the other, a properly and very constitutionally-erected real court of law as per Chapter 8 of our National Constitution (and they in their miserable ignorant selves think it all amounts2the same thing) Indeed,my heart goes out2uSimnikiwe, as u are staring a burn-out in the eye4 your effort. Still, FIGHT ON, BROTHER! As a private laugh 'tween me and u now: I wonder what these racists/tribalists will do (maybe dig some holes and hide somewhere on Mother Earth?) if come December our Great Mother Organization, the inimitable ANC, uplifts nobody else but 31-year-old Julius Sello Malema2become the next president of not only the ANC, but the Republic of South Africa too, in the next few years! Wherever these tribalists/racists will go, at least their stomachs will be full of humble pie! Having been formed by Men and Women of God, Holy Kings of Africa from all around the subcontinent of Azania/Zion, da ANC is definitely not a private organization of one man called Jacob Zuma, and he is goin2go the way of Gaddafi (constitutionally-speaking but NOT THE VIOLENCE) unless he repents and changes his ignorant and reportedly scandalous ways

      God help us! The ANC is neither holy nor are they kings and this is definitely not Zion. If Malema really wants to show us what he is made of let him take his punishment, work on his weaknesses for a few years and come out at the other end a better person. We all have to do this at some time in our lives.

    "According to the report, hundreds of his supporters" - Bet it was less than 1000. If Malema really had support there would always have been - thousands of his supporters -. I always thought that when one reach the age of 21 one is "grown up" and can then no longer be considered to be part of the youth. Is he still struggling to get there? In SA current life expectancy for males is 50 - 55 years. When is he going to get old?

    Simnikiwe, not hating buddy, just saying its normally the empty drums that make the most noise. We need people with a few more mips that he has to lead South Africa. He seems to want to take us back to 'hating'. I thought we've learnt our lessons and are trying to learn respect for each other, build an integrated nation .. not spread feelings of murder, hate and denigration.

    Why did Cape Town let this mampara in? Get him out quick before he causes damage!!!

    What a ridiculous statement Simnikiwe. Sure if they spending millions of their own money paying lawyers, then sure, yes stand up for what you think is correct. The difference being that Malema is spending MILLIONS OF TAX payers money fighting and behaving like a silly little (spoilt) boy who cannot get his own way! He needs to be axed and silenced once and for all, axe him from the ANC.(without any more appeals).

    You have to wonder at the new ANC rhetoric. This double-speak is reminiscent of the speeches of Hitler where the regular folk swallowed this crap "hook line and sinker". This may seem amusing, but the next election will include those who were not alive during Apartheid and the don't remember the words of Nelson Mandela when he became president. 50% of them are unemployed. Who are they going to support? Someone who says work hard and study, or someone who says, "Take it from the whites because they stole it from us".

      An observer : You are quite correct. Hitler blamed the Jews. Malema blames the whites. Exactly the same thing. Both racist. One can take pity on the "leader" because of his derangement but one cannot exonerate the followers if they choose to follow folly out of free will.

      It always amuses me when the ANC/ANCYL is compared to the Nazis when it is a known fact that the aprtheid regime(voted into power for 44 years) openly and unashamedly sympathized with the Nazis.The similarity between the two was telling...

      Hugo, please place proof of you idiotic statement.

    Wow guys, such an archaic argument and it took less than 4 hours for it to become racial, almost a record. When will we learn racial labelling is not the answer to this country's problems. Fact is poverty is and the ANC is just as guilty at not delivering on their promises as Juju is at creating division within our beautiful country. Grow up and be adults!!!
