Malema furore based on rumours - ANC

2011-03-29 12:08

Johannesburg - The ANC on Tuesday questioned why it should take disciplinary action against youth leader Julius Malema, based on "rumours".

"Why would we be taking disciplinary action on the basis of allegations that are made? We don't act on rumours," African National Congress spokesperson Jackson Mthembu told Sapa.

He was reacting to a report in The Star newspaper on Tuesday that Malema had criticised President Jacob Zuma at a weekend conference in Limpopo, a move that could land him in hot water with the ruling party.

"All we are saying is, even if we were to take disciplinary action, we won't tell you," added Mthembu.

Disciplinary committee

Last May, Malema had to make a public apology to Zuma after criticising him in public.

An ANC disciplinary committee also warned him that, should he be found guilty of contravening rule 25.5 (i) of the ANC constitution within the next two years, his membership would be summarily suspended.

ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu questioned the accuracy of Tuesday's newspaper report.

But The Star newspaper said it stood by its story, which quoted Malema as saying, referring to the situation in Libya: "South Africa voted in favour of imperialists, and we cannot smile about that.

"The ANC of Nelson Mandela would never have voted for the killing of fellow Africans imposed by our former masters.

"Since he got into power, comrade Zuma has been surrounded by bad advisers. I'm dismayed and shocked at the way our country makes its decisions. How can they vote for the interests of the UN and the United States of America, a country which clearly wants control over oil reserves?"

Shivambu said Malema had criticised the government's move for supporting a United Nations no-fly zone resolution in Libya, where leader Muammar Gaddafi's rule was under attack.

But he said Malema did not personally attack Zuma.

"He [Malema] never said that. He never said anything about all those things," Shivambu told Sapa, claiming that The Star reporter was not at the conference.

No mention of Zuma

In a statement issued later on Tuesday morning, Shivambu said: "The ANC Youth League is in possession of an unedited video footage of the address by ANCYL president and it shows that there was no mention of President Jacob Zuma on the address."

But the English daily said three journalists had worked on the story and one of them had attended the conference and had made notes of Malema's comments.

Malema's disciplinary action last May came after several incidents, including the youth leader chasing a BCC reporter out of a press conference after calling him a "bastard" and a "bloody agent". He also expressed support for Zimbabwe's Zanu-FP while Zuma was trying to finalise a political settlement between them and Movement for Democratic Change formations; and Malema complained about being publicly rebuked by Zuma.

He also sang the words "shoot the boer" in public after it was banned by a high court.

The youth leader was ordered to make a public apology to Zuma, attend a course at the ANC's political school and pay a R10 000 fine to a youth development project.

"I make this apology unconditionally as I accept that as a leader of the ANC and of the ANC Youth League my conduct and public utterances should at all times reflect respect and restraint," he said in his statement of apology last May.

    HAHAHA !!! Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu OWN the ANC predidency !!! The ANC has not more power left. HAHAHA, how brilliant !!!

      Steen - 2011-03-29 12:17

      i think if there is evidence they will Discipline him.

      Martin du Plessis - 2011-03-29 12:21

      oh, yes. They'll make him drink Red Lable instead of his ususal Blue Lable. OH THE HORROR!

      OuWitBooi - 2011-03-29 13:33

      I don't think it a case of "the ANC has no power left" but rather "Zuma has no power left". As much as I think Malema is stupid and dishonest, we cannot deny that he is shrewd and knows which side his bread is buttered on. For a while I have seen the signs of Zuma's loss of power in the ANC hierarchy, and after the dismal showing we can expect by the ANC on 18 May we will see Zuma being "recalled" by the puppet masters. Malema is simply re-aligning himself from the man he said he would kill for, to the new powers who will pay his salary and keep him in his position.

      G.du Plessis - 2011-03-29 13:57

      Malema is too divisive within his own party to ever become president. COSATU would not wear it, and they control 3.5 million voters. Even within the broader ANC, he is hated by many. He will go head to head with SHabangu over nationalisation shortly!

    A man who is groomed to be a future President,a man who doesnt respect the principles and values of our movement and a man who always put the name of our organization at disrespute and once again he had done what he always do best and the ANC does deffend him like always.People musnt forget that it is the will of people that put leaders into power and if the ANC doesnt get their house into order,something huge is coming

      Lets hope you are right.

      DW - 2011-03-29 12:54

      I am certainly no fan of the ANC but what would make you think that they are grooming Malema to be a future president? The youth who are hangers on and hoping that some of the bling will rub off or that they might crack an invite to one of the sushi parties support him. I actually think that the majority of the "old school" ANC see this idiot for what he is. If I remember correctly, he was accused of "stealing" the election where he became president of the ANCYL in the first place, so he doesnt even have the support of all the youth in the ANC. He will be booted out in the next elections (unless they rig the vote again...)

      Lawence - 2011-03-29 15:55

      DW, if only it worked like that. Once in power (Ask Brother Leader)you manipulate the system that brings power and use money and tenders to get yes men around you. Then you are there for as long as you want

      Its you lot that are filled with bitterness and hatred. You are just too brainwashed to realise it. The real enemy of the average black South African is not the white man, its the ANC.

      Viva ANC se moer. Funny how in times of a crisis i.e. floods, famine, war etc the West are asked for aid, money, resources etc. It's not an issue with the ANC per say, it's an issue with their lack of accountability and responsibility. Ever noticed how the poor in SA are getting poorer. Time for many of you to take your blinkers off, and see the real world Zama.

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-29 12:40

      who is the oppressor stop this nonsense and start to use your brains.Anyone who critizises black people is a racist.What about black people who do that are they oppressors.Wakeup this is 2011 not 1958

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-29 12:53

      @ Sam One of the issues is that Malema has no idea of what an imperialist is. If he represents the youth then they are as stupid as him because Gaddafi is the epitome of an imperialist.

      Scoopy - 2011-03-29 13:01

      zama, you are right with one thing, the ANC should ALL get life (sentences) for their continued RDP (rape, destroy and pillage) policy that is turning this country into a s--thole. Apartheid died 20 years ago, the only ones perpetuating it and filled with bitterness and hatred are the likes of you. Maybe you should move to Zim or Libya and see what oppression really is.

      Nigro - 2011-03-29 13:28

      @zama,viva ANC VIVA.They continue to say we are brain washed by the ANC,Do they ever think that maybe and just maybe they are the ones obsessed by criticising the ANC.Maybe they are the ones that are brainwashed by the DA.To them the ANC has never done anything right.Its their national party that was good,so they think.

The question is should we use selective freedom of speech. Kom nou smart one, your disappointing me here. If someone criticize Zuma they are automatically in hot water..? what are u encouraging here Vuyo?

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-29 14:31

      @Sam I dont care who criticizes Zuma, he is a dumb goat herder. I am criticizing Malema, not because he criticized Zuma, but because he is siding with the murderous dictatoe Gaddafi. Do you get it now?

      Sam - 2011-03-29 15:08

      @VuyosWors.... Are u aware that this is the 1st time you said something relevant to the issue in hand... ncanca... The real enemy of the black... etc mumbo jumbo. Vuyo piece of advice. Try to get your point clearly across when u speak. That way at least we get to understand why are u saying thing that you saying. 2nd Vuyo have u ever seen Sadam's weapons of mass distraction? I am not a Ju-ice fan. But I don't get why is NATO and the USA leading in this war. Even when the United Nations called cease fire they continued to bom anyway. The United nations should be leading not france destabilizing that country or state. The sad reality is that the western like it when Africans fight among themselves because they get a chance to rob us naked. If you read your history u don't even have to look far back just this year. Egyptian president was killing his people did france rush there no, Tunisia no. But because in Libya there is oil it is everybodies business and they cause more damage than help. So in future my man look beyond the obvious, we are not kids, being lied to like this is not ayoba. To a certain extend Juju is right. but note thats my opinion it doesn't mean I am right.

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-29 15:21

      @Sam piece of advice. Dont vote for the ANC. They cant do anything for you. If you enjoy western technology like cars etc vote for the white led parties. You will be able to buy a car and get petrol for it. The ANC will take you back to living in a hut and riding a donkey.

      Sam - 2011-03-29 15:30

      @VuyosWors.... Vuyo the white guy you can't even reason logically and u want me to vote for u. For me it is not really about color. I bought a German car this year and I didn't vote for a white guy.... ai Vuyo.. I will just let it go for now, reasoning with you is hopeless.. bye

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-29 15:53

      @Sam the reason you were able to buy a German car is because you have a BEE position in a white-owned company. Like I said the white man provides for you not the ANC.

      JackMeoff - 2011-03-29 16:12

      @ZAMA.MBHELE - You ignorant little racist. Your lot are the biggest oppressors of your own kind., but you are too uneducated to see that ! Down with the oppressors from the ANC regime..racists !

      21Albatross - 2011-03-29 17:26

      The only reason the us get involved in the middle east is oil they have no other reason. Besides the yanks have only won oine war and that was their civil war.

      Markusman - 2011-03-29 17:28

      @vuyo and Sam, please get off this stupid race issue. saying "vote for a white party and get a fancy car" is completely backwards. there are millions of voters in this country who will do the exact opposite just because of the wording. how about "vote for a party dedicated to the future of SA" you see im not saying vote DA, just dont vote ANC because their mindset is running the country into the ground. I dont care who runs the country as long as they do it properly

    Let me get this, U guys wan't everyone in ANC, to be a yes man, no opinion nothing. Just yes to Zuma all the way...? Malema's critics are worse than I thought....

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-29 12:38

      No we just want a competent and accountable government. Do you understand these concepts?

      Moi1980 - 2011-03-29 12:50

      I don't have an issue with him voicing his opinion with regards to Zuma. The issue is that it then gets denied by the ANC and the ANCYL. Who exactly is it then that he reports to? Or is he a law unto himself?

      tokolosxi - 2011-03-29 13:12 would you define a competent and accountable government???? Your answer would probably be the USA......but if you could open your eyes you would realise that they are the most corrupt of all.......if its not the USA please give us an example!!!!????

      OB1 - 2011-03-29 13:38

      tokolosxi - Why must an example from another country be given...we must set our own example, a competent accountable govt is exactly what it says: one that achieves the goals it promises at election time, one that provides the services required by our constitution, and funded by the tax payer, one that does not steal that money, one that is transaparent in its dealings, one that is not racist, doesn't sow division amongst the people of this country, one that takes action when its members act improperly and holds its ministers, councillors, civil servants and members accountable when they fail in their duty. A govt that works for the people, not themselves. The ANC is none of this.

      Sam - 2011-03-29 13:41

      So u show this by acting as stupid as possible....? interesting... . [Vuyo let me give you a tip my friend. If you want Malema out of the office. U don't have to critisize him even if he is right. Example we are all[I mean critical thinkers and other people who can see beyond the obvious] aware that LYBIA may have domestic problems but NATO and USA are not addressing them the right way. They are only interested in OIL]

      Digit - 2011-03-29 13:46

      @tokolosxi ..... Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, New Zealand, Australia ... enough examples for you ??

      ANC-FTL - 2011-03-29 13:53

      tokolosxi - to answer your question... exactly the opposite of what the ANC are doing. These are ANC policies: Promote racism and crime, destroy health and education, make it as hard as possible to start a company to create jobs, scare away as many skilled people away as possible, take the Western Cape from the DA and enrich themselves as much as possible at the expense of the country and its people. A Competent and Accountable Government: Fight corruption and crime, Improve people’s health and education; stimulate the private sector to create more jobs - we don’t need to reply on government to prove jobs, incentivise skilled labour, help strengthen the democracy and provide good service delivery and infrastructure that is well maintained. Now if you look at the above the top clearly describes greedy selfish people and the bottom people who would just like to live comfortably without being robbed dry by the ANC. That 1million Rand Zuma needs for his one wives new car which doesn’t help anyone except her is holding back this country – it could go some way towards building a school to help the youth of this country. Instead they listen to rants from Juliaaas that really won’t help them get anywhere in life. Anarchy Nepotism Corruption

      tsotsi420 - 2011-03-29 14:04

      No Sam, but Malema displays his utter lack of intelligence and knowledge of world affairs when ever he opens his mouth. The people of Libya wanted change. Gaddafi was using heavy weaponry on them. Malema condemns the West for supporting the will of the people, who in fact asked for a no fly zone to be imposed ??! In this vain would Malema have supported the Apartheid government against the 'Imperialist' sanctions of the USA, UK and the West ? The problem is that leaders often represent general intelligence of the majority of the population - hence they appeal to them and get their votes. The majority of South Africans are unfortunately poorly educated and hence people like Malema are affored the opportunity to get on the podium of politics. This is exactly why South Africa is performing way below it's potential. This is not a racist comment. I love all my fellow South Africans. I just expect more.

The Egptian president killed people right...? it went on for a long period, they finally mananged to get what they want. Lybia Fnance and USA literally ran there... why? Even when there is a no fly zone and other rules France just breaks them, and goes ahead bombing... they don't want a peacefull settlement they are competing for oil with the United state they just want to have an upper hand during negotiations time. United nations should be in the lead not France or USA, illiterate or not illiterate we have seen enough in the past few year that we know when something is dodgy.

      BN2010 - 2011-03-30 01:36

      Hi Sam, I think the problem is not with JuJu's criticism, but rather with: 1. His support of a leader who is killing his own people 2. Floyd Shivambu's denial of such criticism ever having taken place These 2 things highlight the most people's concerns with both the ANC in general and Julius in particular. 1. Willingness to support murderers, tyrants and despots who place their own power above the well being of the people & show an utter disregard for human life...for the simple reason that they are part of some "liberation club" that supported the struggle back in the day. That is no reason to support these people (Mugabe, Ghaddafi, etc). They have proven themselves time & again to be evil murderers who kill their OWN people just to hang on to power. So, everyone worries what kind of man Malema is if he supports these guys? Will he kill his own people too to stay in power? 2. If JuJu did make criticising comments (which you are defending) that's fine, but he must stick by them. He mustn't lie and deny he ever made those comments for fear of disciplinary action. You see, if he is a liar and a coward,then there's an even greater chance that he will become an evil, murdering despot willing to do whatever it takes to hang on to power. Surely you can see why people are concerned. We all know the US & western powers are in it for the oil & that they are greedy evil empires. But WE should not be defending evil men, JUST to oppose the will of the West. WE are better than that!

      BN2010 - 2011-03-30 01:47

      When I say WE are better than that. I mean South African's are better than that. This should not be about choosing sides. Either you are supporting the Tyrants OR you are supporting the West. That's total BS & EXACTLY what the EVIL people on BOTH sides want you to think. Why can't we be on SOUTH AFRICA'S side? Why can't we be on our OWN side? African Leaders or Western leaders is a false choice! It's a LIE! Just like Black or White is a false choice and a LIE! It's what evil people make you think so they can control you. It's what Hitler did to the Germans. He made them think the Jews were the cause of all their problems. He sowed division among his people so they were distracted & he could grab power. Look what happened to Germany. 8 years in a long drawn out war, destroyed economy, destroyed country ruled half by the West and half by the Soviets. Millions of people dead and suffering. Is that what you want for South Africa? Is that what you want for your wife and children and grandchildren? Until you start to see past this false choice: White OR Black, ANC OR DA, Tyrants OR the West, then that is the path that this country is on. As a people, we need to redefine our goals, our ambition, and our hopes for the future & REALIZE that the current leadership does not concern itself with the future of SA, only the future of their pockets. We need leadership that looks to the future, THAT is where our loyalty should lie. NOT ANC OR DA, NOT Black OR White,Blue,Green, whatever!

If they do find any evidence do you really think they will stick to their ruling of suspending him this close to elections - he has too much support and the ANC will lose too many votes. As they say, " even if we were to take disciplinary action, we won't tell you"

    A clear case of the tail wagging the dog.

    A friend of mine was looking a male marmoset monkey to mate with her female monkey. Nah, not even Julius meets the requirements.

  • HowardX - 2011-03-29 13:05

    Malema stood up and made a speech at a conference. Surely there were many people present who can confirm or deny what he said. Are they implying that the ANC is unable to establish what was said by one of their own leaders at a public conference? What nonsense. If he really did not say these things then there should be dozens of people to back it up and not "rumours".

    RUSSIA:- we are the first to go to space USA:- we are the first to land on the moon Zuma:- we will be the first to land on the sun USA:- the sun is too hot, you can not land on it Malema:- we are not stoopid, we will go at night

      Eishhh Green Oaks, you've just spoilt it....never try to improve on a joke, leave it to the comedians..

      JackMeoff - 2011-03-29 16:29

      CLASSIC ! And not too far from the truth.

  • OB1 - 2011-03-29 13:15

    All we are saying is, even if we were to take disciplinary action, we won't tell you," added Mthembu. Well that just sums up the attitude of the ANC toward the public. They think they don't need to tell us what they're doing, they owe us nothing, and what they do is their business and has nothing to do with the citizens of SA...jesus is coming!

  • chileaan - 2011-03-29 13:16

    Julius Malema speaks the truth half the time, he is right black people cannot suffer while Imperialists make millions out of South Africa resources ..... At the same time Malema supports Mugabe and the likes of Gaddafi, I don't think he is aware but both those leaders have killed thousand and Thousand of their own people just to cling to power .....

      DW - 2011-03-29 14:23

      Chileaan Malema doesn't want to know what Mugabe and Gaddafi are doing. He would do exactly the same if he somehow became president because he definitely does not care one iota for the suffering of anyone, black or white. He only cares about how many millions he can rake in as fast as possible for himself so that he can continue to live his current lifestyle. Please tell me ONE thing that this man has actually DONE to assist anyone. He stands and makes speeches, mostly making a total fool of himself in the process, and he lives in a mansion and drives a fancy car for it. In case you are not aware of it, the white imperialists no longer run this country's government. Virtually any large deal done nowadays with these large companies (which you claim make millions out of SA resources) has a huge BEE component - and those that benefit are the ones who are currently sitting in government. Nothing goes to the poor black people who are suffering. Look at your OWN government for redistribution of wealth. Stop being so blind

    If an allegation has been made, surely, given the serious nature of the allegation, an internal investigation into the veracity of the allegation should be made. The alleged statement was not made behind closed doors, it can't be all that hard to ascertain whether the statement was made or not. This Malema is a joke!

      HowardX - 2011-03-29 13:22

      Exactly - surely there were many people at the conference, it shouldn't be a matter for conjecture... unless nobody was paying attention.

      paulf - 2011-03-29 13:24

      Thye were all sleeping and did not pay attention of what was said LOL

  • braamc - 2011-03-29 13:27

    He fits the profile, filthy thieving politician!

  • Roberto Falconer - 2011-03-29 13:29

    Where's the accountability and responsibility? It's always "that was taken out of context" or "he never said anything about that stuff".... And that line about "we don't act on rumours", Jackson are you retarded? That's ALL the ANC acts on...

      JackMeoff - 2011-03-29 16:31

      HEAR HEAR ! Funny how Jackson and his racists gooks remember every single thing if a white person makes a statement they don't like ! Selective, racist ears too !

  • braamc - 2011-03-29 13:31

    Who cares about a filthy thieving Julius

  • clifford.pike1 - 2011-03-29 13:31

    When you owe too many people favours on your road to the presidency, you are unable to take action as and when you normally would. Zuma called in too many favours to be the ANC's presidential candidate - now he can't rein in his rabid Dobermanns. His dirty laundry has got him cornered without options. He's the president, for Pete's sake! If Zuma wanted to, he could squash bugs like Shivambu and Malema without batting an eyelid, but they have him muzzled and leashed with the dirt they have on him. Government commentary is random, contradictory and self absorbed. And now, Manyi's newspaper flop waiting to happen (Vuk'uzenzele) is preparing to impress disgruntled voters with puff pieces about government's many unreported triumphs. Who audits government if not the free press? What a circus!

      DW - 2011-03-29 14:27

      clifford it is not so much the dirt that they have on him, but the fact that the ANC will lose massive support in the elections if they hold these idiots accountable. It is far to close for comfort. The ANC alliance is holding on by a mere thread and any boats being rocked now will cost them even more votes in the upcoming elections. They wont do a thing except sput rhetoric.

  • mev - 2011-03-29 13:35

    Why should he get into 'hot water' for simple words and ol JZ and the rest of the comrades get away with ALLEGED rape, murder, corruption etc etc etc etc etc

  • Other Justin - 2011-03-29 13:38

    LOL! - Please don't take action, you will make most of South Africa srop dead from a heart attack from surprise if you actually do something. Let me guess.......I know....He was taken out of context? LMAO! What a bunch of common crooks.

  • Farzanak145 - 2011-03-29 13:43

    If Malema ever becomes president, ill go on a crazy rampage and leave this country far far behind.

  • Khanyiswa - 2011-03-29 14:05

    com,on guys lets be realistic, ANC are nothing but bunch of thugs,liars and they like to give us stories then hide their tales,how can zuma fire malema wen he knows every little ding dong zuma ever did, they takin us for fulls playing with our taxis and our voices and our minds, dis gorvernment is corrupt quote me on dat! and yhaa I realy fill sorry for my country.

  • El Cid - 2011-03-29 14:07

    Mal Emma and ZoomAh are but two clowns in a rather large circus of clowns. They are so transparent it is scary. Al gee jy hom a goue ring, bly hy nog steeds a lelike (en dom) ding!!! Divide and conquer my fellow whites.

  • etemhoff - 2011-03-29 14:08


  • meatusx - 2011-03-29 15:20

    The weird thing is that the ANC relied on white countries to help them take back South Africa...If you can remember that South Africa was sanctioned due to the apartheid regime...South Africa was basically told to hand over by same countries who represent UN today...

  • Hopeforall - 2011-03-29 15:25

    Well done, comrade Jackson, for telling us the truth about the innocence of our future leader. We are indeed honoured to have one such as you, to discount the cunning lies perpetrated by a rampantly unscrupulous media, and filter the real truth through to us. We thank you and our brother Floyd, and we don't believe the imperialist propaganda of our enemies who say that you think we are stupid, therefore you can say anything to us, and we will believe it. We do not feel insulted, when you do this noble thing for us. Long live the truth ! Long live our ANC fathers, who only speak the truth !

      mosali - 2011-03-29 15:45

      hey wena - are you mad? when your kids are starving you can tell them it is because you could not remove your head our of your rectum to see the truth - or are you part of the political elite?

      VuyosWors - 2011-03-29 15:55

      Sorry but if you support the ANC you are indeed stupid.

  • Julius - 2011-03-29 16:17

    Quite an honest bunch, this ANC !!! How the masses vote for them makes you wonder

      JOHNNYBRAVO - 2011-04-09 14:08

We are being broken down day by day just get it over and done. Why keep on mocking everybody just get it over. VOTE JULIAS FOR PRESIDENT AND LET GO TO WAR !!!!!!!

  • Innocent - 2011-04-09 16:33

    Unfortunately those who expect Malema to change will have to waiting for a long long time. The guy is simply ignorant and dull. So has no wisdom or intelligence to change, just as much as he can not tell between right and wrong. The guy thinks it is fine when Mugabe, Gaddafi and any other African dictator uses the country's military to kill unarmed citizens who are simply demanded their rights to live a decent life or to be ruled by a party of their choice. Shame on you Malema!I think its high time the Honourable Nelson Mandela reminded this confused 'Mr Super-African'guy to stop evoking his honourable name in vain.
