Malema is not my boy - Mbalula

2012-09-30 10:43

Johannesburg - Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula has denied that expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema was his political ally, the Sunday Times reported.

"Our detractors want people to believe that we are made by Malema and without Malema we are politically doomed," he said.

He was aware that under Malema's leadership, the league had called for Mbalula to become secretary-general.

Mbalula said that while he supported President Jacob Zuma at the last African National Congress conference in Polokwane, he did not become "a Zuma boy".

"I have led the youth league that said Zuma must become president, but I have never become a Zuma boy. Why should today it be that Julius is my boy? I think it is just scrapyard mentality."

He would not say whether he was planning to stand for the position of secretary-general.

He condemned ANC leaders who attacked those who wanted Zuma removed, but did not take action against the president's supporters.

"Whenever people do the sign of change, they say those are people who must be butchered," he said.

    Sure Buddy. Tell us another story.

      Joe I Agree .What is he then actually trying to say or project? The rhetoric of all these clowns is mind boggling and just exposes them all to the manifestation of an moral and directional lost government and nation.

      Sure he is not your boy, he is your puppet!

      What were you doing in London together recently?

      vasa.sana - 2012-09-30 12:04

      Agree totally. Hes trying to play it safe. Who has been urging the ANC to handle the youth league with kid gloves? Who has been saying it was wrong to expel Malema? Who has been saying......indeed! We know you Fikile.....you thought you had it all planned? Zuma one term dump him...then Motlhante one term and dump him too.Then you and Malema walk into Union Buildings? No sir these madalas saw through you are and they will stop you. Sorry unless Mothlante has fallen for it!

      edward.radingoana.1 - 2012-09-30 12:42

      Mbalula is a confused man. Maybe is threatened by the so called "rise of Zuma Supporters". He could be suffering from another Malema syndrome.

      Chaapo - 2012-09-30 13:50

      Him of the sex scandals? Can any thinking person believe what comes out of his mouth? They are as thick as thieves literally and figuratively.

      claudia.meads - 2012-09-30 15:47

      Now that circuses have lost their erstwhile luster - the ANC certainly seems to offer a bright future for clowns and WOW, have all the village idiots flocked to Luthuli House in numbers (at least three of the jesters-supreme named in the article above).., in fact, have clowns ever been so generously rewarded in the human race's history..?

    They're all the same. Checking which way the wind blows, then declaring themselves in favour of the popular candidate. Just like Malema did not so long ago.

    Economic Freedom In Our Lifetime is a program of the Youth League of the Africa National Congress. The distractors always had something to say, now even worse. Personal attacks vs constructive criticism is their current mode of action. Foward with the struggle for the total emancipation of the descendants of unkosi Bambatha and other matures of the struggle. Amandla

      boltonbarry - 2012-09-30 11:32

      Luks. Go down to your local library. if it still has any literature. Then, if they have a dictionary there go do some research on the words "Economic freedom" and then compare it to "corruption" "nepotism" "bribery" "incompetence" and see if you can link those words. If not then here is where I am going with this. You cant have economic freedom of any form if you have corruption, nepotism etc in the government. But I am getting the feeling that "economic freedom" for a lot of people in this country means "corrupt activities" with out the fear of being prosecuted and being taken to task for corrupt activities

  • sj.fourie.56 - 2012-09-30 11:12

    Lol what struggle? Struggle for money for kfc :) ur struggle ended in 1994. So people coming n saying they struggling u know nothing lol

  • Rhulani Coleman Mkhwanazi - 2012-09-30 11:12

    Put some education in their head and let them talk. They ain't winning this scam. I can't wait to see Zuma shocking the whole world by going to Jail after his turn.

      boltonbarry - 2012-09-30 11:38

      we can only hope Rhulani that every corrupt official ends up in jail

  • sj.fourie.56 - 2012-09-30 11:13

      kim.buren - 2012-09-30 11:19

      What Leader? Leader of corruption and fraud perhaps

      boltonbarry - 2012-09-30 12:13

      He is the leader of the hopless. He is the leader of a people who has been betrayed by their government. Hopeless people will follow any one who use them to champion their own selfish cause.

      alwyn.vantonder - 2012-09-30 14:37

      ..you're an idiot Moses! "Independant polititian"? Juju started out as corrupt Winnie's little boy, until he started scamming his way under Zuma's wing.. He's always been a cockroach, lurking around, trying to enrich himself, supporting the scum of this country.. He's NOT independant! He's relying on the dumb ANC youths!

  • humphrey.s.mbothwe - 2012-09-30 11:28

    There's no scrapyard mentality in the ANC. How can you seek to be an ANC leader but at the same time you discredit ANC like this. Are you in the ANC for the people or for yourself Mr Beyonce Malema boy.

  • sthembiso.jali.58 - 2012-09-30 11:28

    Mr Mbalula must stop playing mind games, we need 2 kno what he stand for. The nomination process has started.

    "OUR detractors want people to believe that WE are made by Malema and without Malema WE are politically doomed," Where did this royal "we" tendency come from? It's irritating from European royalty (who're basically saying they're speaking for God), and even more irritating from politicians. Mbalula and Malema must Google "Majestic plural".

  • rude.awakning - 2012-09-30 13:19

    Malema is so politally promiscious! Does he even know who's boy he is? Just ask him neh ''who your daddy?'' expect any answer from madiba, tutu, boesak or holimisa! Its anyones guess who he might support next!

Never mind bishop Tutu praying I now have to go to my GOD, Who is a covenant God and make a new covenant to restore things in this country.
