Malema delivers stinging message

2011-02-27 18:31

Rustenburg - Those in power must not abuse their office to benefit their friends and immediate family, ANC Youth League president Julius Malema said on Sunday.

"This democracy is not a democracy of families, this is a democracy of the people of this country... We cannot sit back while families enrich themselves in the name of freedom," Malema said at the launch of the ANCs 2011 election manifesto at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg.

Reports have surfaced recently about lucrative mining deals entered into by President Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane and the Gupta family, from India.

Malema said nobody should abuse the country's minerals because they belonged to the people.

"This is our minerals... We must fight for them," he said, reiterating the ANCYL's support for nationalising the country's mines.

Malema also urged ANC members to vote for the party irrespective of whether they approved of the councillor it selected.

"Whether you like the face or not (of the councillor)... as long as next to that face is the emblem of the ANC, you must vote for that face," he said.

"We are failed by individuals, not by our organisation, the ANC."

Malema said people wanted councillors who would work for them.

"We don't want councillors that use surnames to hire people. We don't want councillors who use surnames to give RDP houses," he said.

    lol....just stating the obvious there, Malema?

      Hans-Erik Iken - 2011-02-27 23:39

      I'm sorry, I cannot stop laughing at this rant of his. It is just too funny. When will the hypocrisy end?

      Kevin Rack - 2011-02-28 03:55

      Funny considering ANCYL backers are failed mining entrepreneurs who are hoping nationalisation of mines can help them recoup their losses on their bad investments. Go talk rubbish some where laaitjie Malemna

      Hardtail - 2011-02-28 07:54

      LMAO....says the 'Tenderpreneur"...

      Maki - 2011-02-28 08:55

      I think we can now clearly see why Comrade Malema will soon be president of SA. He has such clear vision and tells the people what they need to hear. We are going to see many great things from this great person.

      Spyker - 2011-02-28 09:36

      Maki, Is Middle Earth is the home of the troll..? - 2011-02-28 09:53

      Maki the only vission Malema Boy has is becoming God in Africa there is nothing great about him but a spoilt child who want every thing his way or else. I think he is upset as this last business tranaction he was left out and that pisses him of totaly. SA does not need another ja brooe or dictator but a true man who puts the people first and stops corruption to use that growth in the right areas not someones pocket.

      Podgette - 2011-02-28 10:02

      Maki, are you for real? I actually think you make these comments just to stir up peoples ire.... That is about the only thing Malema has ever said that people with a brain could maybe agree with and how strange is his timing.

      Maki - 2011-02-28 10:26

      Podgette, what you fail to see is that Julius Malema has courage. He stands up and says what he wants to say. He does not hide behind a spokesperson. She doesnt draft comment under a handle. She is very brave and sticks his neck out. It makes him an easy target. I am proud to defend him on these forums. I doubt that one person who condemns her on this site will have the courage to utter one word of the drivel below to his face.

      Maki you tosser!! I beg you, please stop writing and/or responding, you are embarrassing yourself by showing what a stupid ignoramus you are! You are clearly as ignorant and gullible as a two year old!

      buka001 - 2011-02-28 12:40

      There you go again Maki! Talking about stuff which you do not fully understand. Maki, please detail how nationalising the mines will be benificial to the economy of South Africa. If malema becomes president, this will be his main agenda, he would definitely push this through. Please include any hstorical data from other countries that have introduced nationalisation and the effects thereof. Thank you

      The Patriot - 2011-02-28 12:41

      Maki, you rock man. I haven't seen such blind support for idiots since the heydays of the Nats. Blind subservient followers with no logic or brains. They taught you well.

      Dan - 2011-02-28 12:56

      @ Maki. You are almost right there my friend. All ANC and AWB supporters are trolls

      Janaman - 2011-02-28 13:03

      Maki South Africa already has billions of tax payers money at their disposal... and what has improved? Giving them more 'disposable' income will ONLY benefit the elite! the way things work in this country is as follows... Steal from the rich and give to the greedy, very greedy!!! you will only realise your lack of vission when its too late!

      Foxx - 2011-02-28 13:05

      @Maki.This is Africa, alot different to those countries. You know what difference is, the people that run those countries do not have hidden agenda's. The ANC government has not been able to succesfully run it's own affairs. Most muncipalities are a mess, corruption fraud etc. How own earth do you think they can make a succes of nationalizing the mines. Thw first thing they will do is get rid of the people that run it now, then political appointments to run them. The minimum requirement for the position will be Black/BEE and an ANC supporter, you don,t have to have any experience to do the job. That's why it will fail

      Shadoz - 2011-02-28 13:37

      Maki i just don't have the time or energy to waste on u and ur one way thinking. All i can say is one day i will stand over you and laugh and say.... we all told you so.

      Spyker - 2011-02-28 13:47

      Maki-saki, I indeed have a lot to learn about maturity. You on the other hand seem to show the traits of the ‘Grand Master’ of maturity. I am (inter alia) impressed with your maturity in making rational inferences, viz “40 000 000” - ANC supporters. If it was not for your evident lack basic maths skills (we shall regally excuse you, as you are the product of the same system that created the hoodwink, you are following over the cliff) augmented by a statistical fallacy of a magnitude that can only be equated by your lack of cognitive faculties – as such though there are no Pedi words to articulate the latter, so it will pass like the voice of the ancestors, in the fading dusk... “1000 AWB” – the relevance to what I said, will of course be evident, to anyone with a lineage from the “red zone” (on the map given in the link below). For the rest us – with a lineage ranging from blue- to the purple patch... ...well, go figure. I shall not entertain you with the history of a certain section of the SAcan population against an overwhelming foe – in lieu of your- and your kind’s overt constraints (in my bestowed immaturity I can make such sweeping statements). Shall I however remind you of a little event called Rorke's Drift. As such validating the reason why 40 000 donkeys would never be one race horse. Enjoy the view of the world below... ja, well, no, fine, any offers..??

      Pink_Polony - 2011-02-28 14:00

      Hey Maki-any-sensi, A question to you and your obtuse ANC nationalisation apologists, You are the ones who honestly believe that stuff will be cheaper when companies do not make a profit... Who is your economics lecturer – the Jelly Tsotsi who failed woodwork or perhaps the cattle-herder with a std 3 and a shower-head? What the dense primates cannot figure out is that the only way prices go down is with COMPETITION. Competition is driven by EFFICIENCY and PRODUCTIVITY. I understand there are no such words in Pedi, Zulu and Xhosa, but friends, such is life – accept it or go the Zim way – back to mud huts, skins and sticks. Why do you think that every centralised economy has failed, not just failed marginally, no brothers and sisters, it failed catastrophically! Take Cuba as an example – people are literally swimming across the ocean to the USA. If the USA is such a horrible place that exploits its people sooooo badly, then why are USA citizens not flooding across to Cuba? No, Cubans are flooding across to the USA – why, why, why??? Please explain that to me – I beg you!?! I am waiting patiently for an answer...

      Maki - 2011-02-28 14:13

      Spyker, it is axiomatic to assume that the high prevalance of words outside of the norms of common english are meant to intimidate me. So you are also a lawyer, may I ask what your point is? It will displease you to remeber that, in spite of your long winded counter argument, you opened with a salvo of juvenile name calling. My stats were illustrative rather an empirical display of mathematical genius.

      WhiteEagle - 2011-02-28 14:17

      Maki, you brainless sheep, its the only sensible assesment of you.

      Pink_Polony - 2011-02-28 14:31

      In the mean time let’s look at some of the pre-primary school reasoning you have bestowed upon the world... Firstly, please explain: Alexkor's (the other state owned mining co) annual report tabled in Parliament during the last few weeks, shows it has shed jobs for the fifth successive year, while accumulated losses now stand at R275 million. I choose not to hold my breath – if you don’t mind... “...Countries where this works - China, Iran, Venezuela...” Venezuela, Iran, China, Anybody who thinks China does not have one of the purist CAPITALIST economic systems ever, probably also believes the Jelly Tsotsi... Hence, the Chins face the same future as some others – the difference, the “others” are getting through it...

      Spyker - 2011-02-28 14:46

      Maki, You are a case-in-point of the ANC’s habitual red herrings. As for axioms - you offer the world nothing other than your blackness – that is my point. Get it..?

      Realist - 2011-02-28 22:20

      Maki, the 66% who vote for the ANC are the illiterate, unemployed who rely on the the rest mainly non supporting ANC to give them grants, free healthcare, free education, etc. What do they know about mine nationalization, its effects and economics 101? I truly believe that you are naive, and cannot see Malema the rest of the WORLD sees him, you guys carry on with the Julius flag in your little corner. One of these days, the economy that carries those illiterate, ignorant fools like Malema and his followers, is surely going to collapse! - 2011-03-01 11:30

      VOTE "DA" that,s all.

      johanduv - 2011-03-01 14:05

      Maki - "She doesnt draft comment under a handle." Oh hell so what you are actually saying is that Malema is a woman? Well, that's news...

  • liezelb - 2011-02-27 18:40

    On that very obvious observation which we, as the public, have been witness to over the past few years, I must agree....South Africa did not employ all the families that came with the presidential election. We only employed the president. Should my compensation cover my parents, sisters, aunts uncles, elders etc as Zuma/many other politically motivated individuals do? A totally unnecessary entourage.

      John Wilderness - 2011-02-28 03:44

    We have a hard fought democracy. Lets use it as intended - to show what we think of our leaders. The danger to South Africa is not Jacob Zuma but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a Zuma presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Zuma, who is a mere symptom of what ails South Africa. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Jacob Zuma, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President.

ONCE AGAIN-One CANNOT believe that a pompous, arrogant, self-enriching, filled with sheer HATE for people, even HAS a following and a platform to spread his dangerous spouting forth!!! Just the thought that malema is, SADLY, the future of this country is enough to make one seek safer shores, both black and white...

      Win14 - 2011-02-28 09:17

      Yes, we need to do something with our next vote. It's just so obvious that most blacks are full of undigested thoughts and hopes. There you say that you are not happy with the performance of your very own ANC - so: many of you will take revenge by not voting at all next time ... because you certainly won't vote for the DA, i.e. "the white man's party". Meanwhile, from the ANC's angle, a non-vote obviously is worth half a DA vote. So why not go the whole hog and vote DA!? You'd be doing yourself and the country a great favour. It's all very nice to say we don't want the DA, we want OUR party (ANC) to finally get it right with service delivery and virtually everything else - so: we will punish them by not voting. Do yourselves a favour and ask the question: where in SA are things actually working?? Well?? only in the Western Cape. So what is your great fear of the white man/woman? Apartheid is dead, morsdood, and cannot possibly return in any form to hurt you, and the "white man" today has to be particularly careful to over-satisfy blacks and their demands. So, if we all vote DA, it's a Win-Win situation for ALL OF US. Voting ANC is a triple-lose situation (just look at the gemors, crime and corruption that has been engulfing us all). Furthermore, it is quite incorrect to call the DA a white man's party, with so many black officials on board. Just give them a chance and you'll never look back again. Don't waste your precious vote on the ANC again. Forget Madlema.

      BOY30 - 2011-02-28 11:19

      @Win14. I hear you my fellow citizen. Black people are not that convinced with the DA. DA was an opposition party in the NP lead government. I dont remember them fight to stop apartheid. Maybe is because i was too young that time. If you can proof it to me that they actually foght for us black people i will then vote for them. This are the sentiments of most black people i engage with. If there could be another strong opposition party other than DA i will vote for it.

      The Patriot - 2011-02-28 13:01

      @BOY30, A thinker, well done. Zilla was a member of "Black Sash" , an anti apartheid activist movement. She was also a reporter that exposed the atrocities committed against Steve Biko. The DA evolved from the United Party that was the opposition party to the Nats in the 60's under Dr van Zyl Slabbert and Helen Suzman, illegally had talks with the ANC in exile. They became later known as the Progressive Federal Party, Democratic Party and now the DA. Same people, same fight same belief. The ANC propaganda machine has convinced the majority that they are only a white or privileged party. If so, why did the NATS merge with the ANC? They have faught for human rights and equality for over 50 years. Your call.

      Ekenechukwu - 2011-02-28 13:44

      @BUSI,your comment makes me to ask you this question, HOW DO YOU LEAD THE PEOPLE UNDER YOUR AUTHORITY? Because everybody is leader!!!! Do your checklist in every aspect and see if you are better than Mr. Zuma.

      Win14 - 2011-02-28 14:17

      @BOY30 -- I wasn't referring to the past, I mean 2010/2011. You want things to be great right NOW, BECAUSE of the past (=crime and corruption galore). Fighting against Apartheid? That was the job of previous generations. Today, we are fighting against corruption and decay, and may the leaders with the best expertise and qualifications rule the waves.

      FD - 2011-02-28 14:55

      @Busi - Why are people so scared of Malema being our next Presidency??? He is just doing a wonderful job - i can imagine RSA without people like Malema, opposition will be so relaxed, right now they all on their toes and they have shifted their focus to Nationalisation which might not happen at all. Go Malema, go! Keep their nerves high maybe they can begin to respect the intelligence and capabilities of a Darkie

      FD - 2011-02-28 15:09

      @Win14 - I like your descent way of cheap politics - but i must say well done for trying to sell your favourite party. To be honest with you - having suffered so much under a discriminatory White government, there is no way i can trust a white man in power again. we still see their greediness in Top positions where they literal refuse to appoint Blacks into management and just wanna hold on to power. Thats a similar model of government. I get you in there you start your discrimination sh#t - reserve certain positions for certain skin colours not merit. My personal opnion - i will rather have my own Brother mercy it up and stick to my principles of Africa for Africans. So, to HELL with any 'WHITE or White Influenced Party'. Indeed scared of the return of Apartheid Part 2.

      Simondi, there is no more white party in SA and there can never be one again simply because a vast majority of the white south Africans have left the country and those that are left are too few and do not have that power any more... I sincerely do not know what they (the current government) blame their incompetency's now on...? Whites are now only a 7.9% of the current 49 million population of SA...

  • Law Abiding - 2011-02-27 18:57

    Describing a child's development, doesn't the following ring true for Malema? "Period of Concrete Operations (7-12 years) Characteristic Behavior: Evidence for organized, logical thought. There is the ability to perform multiple classification tasks, order objects in a logical sequence, and comprehend the principle of conservation. thinking becomes less transductive and less egocentric. The child is capable of concrete problem-solving. Some reversibility now possible (quantities moved can be restored such as in arithmetic: 3+4 = 7 and 7-4 = 3, etc.)" The people in power must mature drastically. Speeches like this achieves nada nix zip nil nothing. His favourite song is much more effective, but then Malema is singing some one else's words.

  • Jabu - 2011-02-27 19:11

Malema, whether you like it or not, will always tell the truth, unlike some even in the cabinet who would not lift a finger when they see things going wrong!

      Petro50 - 2011-02-28 22:34

      Malema is just a puppet. He says what Zuma needs him to say, but cannot say himself. I am sure he does not do it for free. He gets rewarded and in future, he will surely get an even bigger reward. Maybe a mine or two!

      You 100% right Jabu - Malema always says it as is. I have never seen a man with such big balls. Iam sure his bravery comes from these huge BALLS. See, he condemns even Blacks meaning he is not so much of a racist. One of his truths - He called Zille a Racist girl isnt that true?? He said Luthuli house is a ..... and the white jerno an Agent (meaning he represented the West - true hey)And lastly he is correct if he says some people are greedy in RSA obviously including himself but unfortunately no-one has ever pointed a finger to themselves

      IF you do some research you will notice that Malema shares similar ideals to vervoed, botha, hitler and mugabe. If you like him you are anti mandela as, if you have read mandela's speeches and watched his interviews you would see that malema is the antithesis to mandela, juju stands for everything mandela fought against. Have you noticed how, once again race has become a major issue since malema started speaking up? Can you really back a man who agrees with the ideals of Mugabe?

      When will you realise that Malema does not have any clue whatsoever as to what he is doing. You going to follow him into a fire? Then you are just dumb. I suggest you finish highschool first, maybe look at what it takes to build an empire. If you think any idiot can be in charge, i wish you luck with the future Malema does the opposite of what he says

    at least it's good to see that themes like corruption and accountability are being more openly discussed within the ANC.

      vdmerweas - 2011-02-28 08:37

      wow! glad they discuss it more openly now that they managed to figure out how to wipe their bum.

      DW - 2011-02-28 09:18

      They discuss it...and then they carry on with it. There is NO accountability. And Malema is as guilty as the rest. Easy to get worked up when you are not the beneficiary, but when he is the one making money out of deals which he should not be involved in, then he gets VERY worked up when anyone else points a finger.

  • 106106sa - 2011-02-27 19:22

    Let's not ignore this fellow..Malema....we do so at 'our' peril!He'll be around for YEARS to come,as the ANC will be around for many years to come.SA's only hope to REAL democracy and an intelligent voting public is education and a massive middle class.Both 'items' are pipe dreams in Africa and certainly will also be in SA!!!

  • Macho Mike - 2011-02-27 19:23

    Black Kettle Pot or Pot Black Kettle or Kettle Pot Black It does not matter which way you look at it Malema, you are in not fit state to say that families and friends of those in power should not enrich themselves. Many questions remain unanswered about your perceived wealth. Such drivle talk is akin to shooting yourself in the foot. But eish, you have shot yourself in the foot so many times in the past your feet must look like a sieve. I guess the real reason is this - if those in power do not enrich themselves, their families and their friends, then i guess there is more money left for you to enrich yourself.Your glass house is mighty fragile Malema. Or as your maker would say, and i think the quote is apt since you have a PhD in Woodwork - "And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?"

      If you think Zuma is clever enough to take on the Indians in business and come out profitable then you are mistaken, those Indians will clean him out of the mines before he even dries himself off from his shower! Good luck Zuma cause you dealing with Indians that eat business for breakfast and you with your business savy wont last a day!!

      But the ANC wants the Indians to move all over the country or lose their jobs (the demographics in Durban dont work for them). I wonder if this includes the Guptas and their family? Obviously not.

      Max - 2011-02-28 10:16

    Dear Juju (or JZ which ever one of you two it was cause heaven forbid all your convoys look the same apparently). I would like to thank you for the heart attack you almost gave me this afternoon as your black BMW sped over the red light infront of me on the corner of Oliver Thambo and Beyers Naude Drive in Rustenburg flanked by a dozen screaming and flashing flashy cars. I did wave but you were obviously in too much of a hurry to worry about winning the vote of the common white girl on the street. I would like to propose to you a different strategy for the coming elections. How about before thinking twice about electing "influencual individuals" (That Oxford dictionary I send you for Christmas last year, Flo Shivambo, might come handy now. You will find these words 6 letters after "canoe") you start nearer to home and ACTUALLY HIRE PEOPLE THAT GIVES A DAMN ABOUT THEIR FELLOW ROAD USERS!!! Tell your mother I send my love and tell her that I see that she hasn't come around to using that rottang (You will need a HAT for that one, Flo) I sent her for your birthday. Kind regards, Annie Calico

  • molefeP - 2011-02-27 19:58

    I am reminded of the bad old days, in the Soviet Republics. Where one was allowed to point out only those faults of specific persons. But as soon as you critisized the System you went to "Farm Trees" in Siberia. Just like we are failed not by the ANC, but by individuals. The whole of the ANC has become a bloated, corrupt parasite. It is like with all revelutions, once the Lions are gone the Fat Cats move in. And there goes the hopes of the people whose blood payed for the revolution.

      John Wilderness - 2011-02-28 03:53

      honky - 2011-02-28 08:49

      Yes, this is exactly what was used by the Soviets. Citicising individuals tends to take the sting out and pacifies people, as long as you don't criticise the system itself.

      Ok, so he is uneducated, stupid, has absolutely no business knowledge, cant add 2 numbers together, cant even do woodwork, but is a multi millionaire. Please tell me Tlou, are you able to see anything strange here? Not? I guess that is why you will continue to vote for these idiots. You are as stupid as they are - except that they are so good at pulling the wool over your blind eyes. I will spell it out. Malema has used his contacts and friends to make his money. He does not have the ability to make it on his own without his contacts. Do you still think he is a hero? I thought you would. Enough said.

  • - 2011-02-27 22:01

    Malema also urged ANC members to vote for the party irrespective of whether they approved of the councillor it selected. What is it with Malema – you don’t understand. ANC members are not voting for the party because they know the wrongdoings of the councillors because this democracy became one of families. If the minerals belong to the people then why is it that reports have surfaced about lucrative mining deals entered into by Zuma’s son Duduzane and the Gupta family, from India. The minerals belong to those of the connected and immediate families and friends. So, to whom did you pitch your talk?
