Malema envisions white domestic workers

2012-01-06 22:08

Thaba'Nchu - Suspended ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema wants to see white domestic workers in South Africa in the next 10 years.

Currently whites controlled everything from the means of production and mines to banks and labour, he told a crowd in Thaba'Nchu in the Free State.

"That must change. We want to find in the next 10 years white domestic workers," he said to deafening applause from locals who packed the hall of Moroka High School.

He said the youth league's call for "economic freedom" should not be viewed as a way of excluding whites.

"We never said they must be sent to sea. We just want to share the cake."

He said he was in politics because of the poor, particularly domestic workers.

Malema spoke of black people's struggles, some of whom converted their kitchens into bedrooms at night, shack dwellers who never celebrated when it rained because the structures leaked, and those who barely had anything to eat at home.

Malema, who bought a house in Sandton, Johannesburg, for R3m, and was rebuilding it for R8.5m, said he didn't have to stay in a squatter camp to know the struggles people there faced.

"I am a child of a domestic worker."

He said the history of the ANC was to fight for "economic freedom" and that President Jacob Zuma should, in his January 8 address, speak about providing houses, water and sanitation.

"I am not in the struggle for a position. That is why we don't care whether we are suspended or not," he said.

Malema and five other top ANCYL officials were suspended from the party in November last year for bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing division in its ranks.

      I dont blame Juju but the top brass in position for not pushing hard with different forms of educating our people(young & old) so to diferentiate between idiotic and sensible leaders. After all they accept 30yrs+ person having children to caused deeper hatredness amongst South Africans by 'feeding/preying' on the illiterates using the title YOUTH.

      Irene - 2012-01-06 23:24

      Steen ~ We're not obsessed with him. We just find him absolutely hilarious and love to laugh at his stupidity. Don't confuse that with obsession boy.

      Sean - 2012-01-07 00:59

      @Steen- Not obsessed , just worried about the future , not only whites , but all South Africans !! Imagine a white politician had to make similar remarks against black people..... do I need to say more!! This bloody idiot is causing more damage to S.A`s image than one can imagine.

      Juan - 2012-01-07 03:33

      @Steen he may have a much fatter bank account than most of us have, but we sacrificed and I WORKED for what we have. We didn't steal it through underhanded tender projects. In my eyes he will never have class and always be a glorified garden boy, no matter how much he manages to sipher off the taxpayer

      Donovan - 2012-01-07 06:04

      That's how Africa works - you must become the lowest common denominator. Over here in NZ, there are lots of white domestic workers, we happily do our own housework and gardens. What the economic brilliance that is Malema does not understand, is that if everyone did their own housework in SA, there would be even more starving people as there would instantly be about 4 million fewer jobs (that's just a guesstimate made up on the spot, but you get the idea).

      Burtfred - 2012-01-07 06:45

      It sounds like a good idea. Maybe then I won't have so much sugar, tea, soap, light bulbs, toilet rolls and matches, etc pilfered from my house.

      With the believe tht ther shall economic freedom for blacks soon.blacks need good quality education & free education.blacks should be forced to do maths & science.

  • - 2012-01-06 22:22

    I think Malema watched the TV show called "Coconuts".

      charmaine.rowlands - 2012-01-07 00:10

      @Sinudiety, there aren't 35 million whites in SA!!??

      Sinudeity - 2012-01-07 03:24

      That is the point. There are not 35 million white people in South Africa to take care of. Malema's vision escapes this fact.

  • Merkwaardig - 2012-01-06 22:25

  • Francois - 2012-01-06 22:26

    Dear Julius, my maternal grandmother was a domestic worker just post WWII and had to look after 4 children after my paternal grandfather passed away when he was 43. She was a white domestic worker - thus what you are proposing is nothing new and I think it will also solve the problem of increasing white poverty. Then just a mistake or two that slipped through, whites do not control labour - Cosatu does and unless Vavi has turned white recently, I think it is a mistake and then banks does not produce anything, it is not an economic production facility, rather an economic production necessity and if you feel strongly about it, open you own bank, nothing stops you. It is not like mines where you need to have an ore deposit which are all nationalised ANYWAY. You can open a bank from your Sandton home. If you want me to, I will show you. I think if you are so desperate to own economic production, don't buy an expensive house, buy a controlling share in a small company, but that will not rhyme with your rhetoric. Then two quick last things, it is a better idea to also want to make the cake bigger as well, you do that by investing and not begging and not threatening and if have not guessed it by now, I am white and I am Afrikaans - that means according to Zuma, I am part of Africa's only white tribe - let us work out how we can make the cake bigger faster than the appetite than those eating from it. Good night our guardian!

      viv.hamman - 2012-01-06 23:36

      Fantastically stated Franco! Im just wondering? Should this twit open a bank from HOME, who would be his clientèle? Would he lower the interest rates charged on transactions to protect his fellow young intellectually incompetent supporters? Would he provide home loans to the lower income groups? or even better still, support young matriculants/university graduates to be entrepreneurs creating white only domestic cleaning companies. I am sure about one thing, there wont be any strikes if that happens.

      Margaret - 2012-01-07 03:15

      Even in these times I know of whites who are currently working as domestic workers and cleaners simply because they are not able to get any other work and still prepared to work for an income to survive. There is no shame in doing domestic work, and if Malema doesn't know this then he is out of touch with what is happening in South Africa

  • Geronimo - 2012-01-06 22:28

    What better proof that this man is a disgusting racist? He sees everything in black and white, his brain is poisoned by race and hate. Why can't he see every citizen of this nation as "South Africans" and work towards creating a better future for all? If anything, Malema should wish to see every poor person black or otherwise alleviated from poverty. Instead he talks of thrusting white people into poverty and destitution. Build, not break, Mr Malema.

      Piet - 2012-01-07 06:20

      Spot On Geronimo. He will "brain-overheat" if he attempts to think constructively.

  • echowles - 2012-01-06 22:28

    Most people in domestic worker positions provide very little, if not minimum, wage amounts. Most of the time people are working in that type of job because they are uneducated or lack proper skills training. Majority of white people are educated and have access to better jobs so why would they choose to work one that is more labour intensive and pays less? Stop trying to lower white racial standing and focus on empowering previously disadvantaged.

    Is that the only wish you can tell the youth? How will white domestic workers benefit young S. Africans? Instead of encouraging matric graduates to work hard after passing matric that you still have to pass to work hard at institutions of higher education, you are talking whites domestic workers.

    Tell you what Juliearse, why don't the ALL the whites just stop employing your mothers? Then you'll see poverty like you've never seen it before boy. Be careful of biting the hand that feeds cretin.

      Do you really think domestic employment is a poverty alleviation strategy.. seriously,.. Johan Kotze where are you ? come get this Lunatic..

  • Haveyoursay - 2012-01-06 22:51

    There we go again. Shooting his mouth off and the media lapping it up. When Malema and co run the country they will make Mugabe look like a Sunday school teacher. There will be no whites left in the country to blame for everything.

  • Debbie - 2012-01-06 22:57

    There are some. I own a domestic agency, and there are white, coloured and indian domestic workers out there.

  • Ruth - 2012-01-06 23:02

    He implies that being a domestic worker is a "low" job. These ladies work darn hard... whether a black, white, indian or purple domestic worker, these ladies should be appreciated. We leave our homes and children in their care daily. Why make their profession seem insignificant? They are doing a sterling position, and deserve recognition for what they do! I personally think that every domestic worker should protest against him, he just insulted them... twit!

      Blip - 2012-01-07 04:57

      It's an noble and honest day's wage. Something he's never done.

    I have a white friend whose husband is medically unable to work. They receive after deductions to cover medical costs, R1600/month- hubby has spinal cancer. This friend works as a domestic worker now Julius. They have two children. 2months of the year they do not receive income due to the assessment period of the medical case. Today I spoke to a friend (a young black man) whose wife is potentially suffering from breast cancer. The pain she experiences is quite severe. He works for a company that installs built in cupboards and he is really talented. He thanked me for the pain killers I gave his wife last year as they helped. He was in town so I told him to meet me at the Pharmacy, where I gave him a new box of pain killers (Ibuprofen + paracetamol) which the govt hospital did not bother to do. I also warned him about the treatment duration etc. in case anyone is worried about liver issues and radiation treatment.... Why do I tell you this- Julius is so stuck in his racist ways he has lost the plot completely. He is so focused on what is in it for him, believing that white people need to experience the same evils that were inflicted in the past, that he is like a cancer in our society. Sorry, people like him need to be expunged from South Africa as they retard the progress of this rainbow nation.

      Shawn - 2012-01-07 05:27

      Exactly! Evil people foment hatred amongst fellow countrymen. He would have fitted in well into the Hitler Youth Brigade, if he had enough brains to get in, in the first place.

    Overseas any nationality become domestic workers, no one looks down on them, its good honest work, better than sitting around waiting for handouts

      Irene - 2012-01-06 23:09

      Overseas the garbage collectors are white as well. The difference though is that they do their job with a smile on their face because it's all they're qualified to do and they're grateful to have a job. Pity black South Africans always have a victim mentality.

      Blip - 2012-01-07 05:02

      Many people do work they're "not happy" with. It pays the bills. Nurses have to clear away bedpans. Cops have to wrestle with violent drunks. Teachers have to deal with swearing, abusive teenagers. Builders have to work in the cold and the rain, or in the scorching heat. It's LIFE!

      Garth - 2012-01-07 06:14

      @Blip - teachers did not have to deal with swearing, abusive teenagers until schools were stripped of the means to discipline the louts. `Spare the rod, spoil the child.' Yeah, you really do `spoil' the child. And Irene - no one smiles about clearing away other peoples' garbage, think about it . . .

  • Renier - 2012-01-06 23:08

    Malema is on his own mission and makes statements like these in order to retain support. He would say anything to stay in a position of some sort. How else is he going to ensure the inflow of money into his "accounts"? He is a true racist and an excellent manipulator of people. A real modern day Hitler.

      Shawn - 2012-01-07 05:22

      Absolutely. How does someone like this get into politics in the first place and then grow a bank account so fast is what I would like to know! Corruption breeds contempt, and rightly so. Does someone who breeds such hatred amongst fellow countryman deserve anything, beside a still jail sentence. But then they call you a racist. In the end justice will be done, mark the words. The wheel always turns.

      John - 2012-01-07 07:15

      Exactly Renier, he's like a spoilt child throwing it's toys out of the cot. He's pi$$ed because his own cANCer cronies sidelined him. Shawn is right the wheel turns, I am waiting to see what the cANCer hierarchy have to say about his antics after the bash and the bash has only just started. I think JuJu is now being wound up by his supporters and the more he gives them to feed on the more his bank account swells.

  • rickvcooper - 2012-01-06 23:08

    Juju - after your political castration you just might end up being JZ's tea girl. Every time I read of, or hear, your ant-white rambling I have to remind myself not to fall into the racism trap. Fortunately, not only am I intelligent and educated, but, I am also acquainted with so many fantastic friends, employees and clients of colour, that I know that racism, no matter what the excuse (including affirmative action), is for stupid people. If you learn anything in this lifetime, I hope it will be respect: respect for others, and for what others build - it is far easier to tear down, plunder, pilfer, and destroy, than it is to build.

  • SergeD69 - 2012-01-06 23:11

Looking at the rest of "dark" Africa, it seems you and your masses don't have that ability. The only way you can obtain wealth is to take from others. Creating your own is impossible for you it seems.

      Johan - 2012-01-07 04:10

      Matthew, that's about right my friend. Jimmy, whether they came here with out without a cake, they still ended up baking their own. What they DID come with was lots of potential, drive and vision. That, is what is completely lacking from the "natives". I'm still to find a black CEO that "did it for himself", someone that started a company from the bottom up all by himself without ANY white assitance. The black CEO's you see today my friend, were stuck in right at the top of WHITE companies due to government pressure and not for any other noble reason. It seems the best they come up with is selling coat hangers and cellphone chargers at stop streets... Come, argue? There are plenty of ingredients around to build cakes with. The most important though is the ABILITY to use those ingredients. That's what's lacking on your side of the fence. Look at shops in townships that were started up by other Africans, eg Zimbabweans, Somalians, etc. Our LOCAL blacks go off and burn their shops down and beat them because "they're stealing our business". But alas, our locals don't go and have the inniative to open their own shops? Um, wtf?

If that doesn’t work, I will poison your food and make sure you attend the pearly gates. (Since you are an ANC card holder, then the heavens will be waiting for you with open arms.)

(In case you do not understand the phrase, we will become the domestic workers.) Would you kindly find employ for Zelna at your earliest convience since she will be without income except for the R24,000 severance pay we will be giving her.

      Frogs are an essential part of the environment. Malema? Methinks not!

    First way to combat domestic crime, hire a white worker

      Now we have something. Good idea, lets hide the grenades in the teapots.

    I give up.

      Ag shame, too difficult for you to grasp what is happening. Do some quick reading. Marxism for Idiots is a good start!

    In and around the 1990's white young (18yrs old) and senior (50-60yrs) were working for a cleaning aeroplanes, working as tea ladies and office cleaners and there were a number of young white males working as labourers cleaning windows of office blocks..Some of those working cleaning aeroplanes were educated teachers who had no jobs. So dear Mister Malema, when you have a need to express (see below meaning**)verbal Diarrhea, either do this to entertain us (beware Mark Banks)...get your facts right...or rather just SHUT UP. **Diarrhea is loose, watery stools. Having diarrhea means passing loose stools three or more times a day. Acute diarrhea is a common problem that usually lasts 1 or 2 days and goes away on its own. Diarrhea lasting more than 2 days may be a sign of a more serious problem. Chronic diarrhea that lasts at least 4 weeks—may be a symptom of a chronic disease. Chronic diarrhea symptoms may be continual or they may come and go. In your case Malema its become contaminated.

    I have been a domestic workwr most of my life and I am white. I do it for without pay as I would rather do it myself than be stolen blind and have to support an entire family. But people say I am selfish and uncaring for not providing employment ..... How will affirmative action work when all domestics are white?? A££hole......

      Shawn - 2012-01-07 04:46

      Ag shame you poor thing and noggal for no pay, you say. Bully for you, Bigboy! Now go wash those dishes for Juju before he fires you.

    Juju, you idiot, where are you going with this? No brains in that head of yours at all? They are looking at your banking accounts as we speak. You know you are in big trouble with fallen bridges and contract scams. We all know you can't hide, so you attack the whites. Your hatred will find you out and will turn on you real quick. By the way, Zuma is not in love with you any more, so watch your step boy.
