Malema not selling clothes - ANCYL

2011-12-11 22:42

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League distanced itself from a Sunday newspaper report claiming its president Julius Malema would be selling clothing featuring his name at the party's centenary celebrations.

Spokesperson Floyd Shivambu called the Sunday Sun's report "untrue, disingenuous and grossly misleading".

"President Julius Malema will not be selling any clothing item at the centenary celebrations of the ANC as suggested by the Sunday Sun," he said.

The paper published an article on what it called "the launch of Julius Malema's latest project - A fashion label".

The launch of the label - apparently featuring berets, T-shirts, sunglasses, watches, and children's items - was confirmed to the paper by designer Obakeng Ramabodu.

All the items made under the fashion label would apparently bear the "Juju" designer logo, the paper reported.

Shivambu said the newspaper was aware that "[Malema] is not associated with any clothing label and has never given approval of his name 'Julius Malema' to be a name of any clothing brand."

He said the ANCYL would demand a full retraction from the paper, which they want to be published on the front page.

    Damn! And here I was dreaming about owning a Julius Malema Original Suit.

      Alfred - 2011-12-11 23:16

      Each to their own but I was just looking forward to having something to wash my car with on weekends and wear on Halloween.

      Squeegee - 2011-12-12 07:57

      We demand that Malema be retracted - from the human race.

      Burtfred - 2011-12-12 08:10

      Helmut - 2011-12-12 09:00

      He specialises in wetsuits, because they expand as his weight increases.

    Aggg please... Aren't all these guys supposed to be suspended..? So sick off seeing those a**holes names in the news!!

      Thozi - 2011-12-12 08:58

      Felt the same , but wonder what the little dumpie is up to if I don't see his name in the papers over some 24hrs, eg has he changed the colour of his suit, etc.

  • brett.macdonald1 - 2011-12-11 23:09

    Why should the YL dismiss this? It's the first honest buck the guy was about to make in his life!!

  • TheWatcher - 2011-12-11 23:57

    I want an orange jumpsuit with 'Juju' on it!

      Spyker - 2011-12-12 02:07

      I want an orange jumpsuit with 'Juju' IN it - specifically that one with the broken ripcord...

  • Geronimo - 2011-12-12 00:14

    Can someone please remind Shivambu that it's "Ex-president Malema" and not "president Malema". Thank you.

      Geronimo - 2011-12-12 00:56

      Tebz you must be living in some parallel universe or something. Either that or you missed the big hoo-ha when the fraudulent Fatboy was fired.

      Azande - 2011-12-12 01:43

      They remain in their positions until the disciplinary process is concluded and the outcome is adverse to them.

      George - 2011-12-12 12:10

      Ex Disgraced president PLEASE

  • Azande - 2011-12-12 02:17

    Juju is quiet these days. I miss his "comedy source" behaviour.

  • Anton - 2011-12-12 03:39

    Haha, can already see the 'fakes/copies' being made in Thailand: "JuJu Marema Itinatinal".

      Jamesson - 2011-12-12 09:39

  • braamc - 2011-12-12 06:54

    Suspended from ANCYL, move on, start your fashion house for you can do with a total make over, not sure if it will help.

  • maniza.ahoua - 2011-12-12 07:30

    whatever, i wouldn't be seen wearing anything with that idoit name

      Albert - 2011-12-12 07:48

      He should sell perfume for all the stink he caused.

  • Niki - 2011-12-12 09:15

  • Leon - 2011-12-12 09:23

    @Bret.mac. Honest buck???? I don't think he's going to reveal the income from these sales to the receiver!!

  • Jacqui - 2011-12-12 09:25

    I thought we were not suppose to hear from the likes of Shivambu and Malema for a couple of years. Here they are doing business as usual.

  • Jamesson - 2011-12-12 09:36

    I should get me that "Beret", rock it to a couple of parties this festive... that should help me do well with the ladies.

  • makesuthink - 2011-12-12 10:10

    News 24 It is SUSPENDED spokesman therefore he cannot be spokesmam for ANCYL But he is correct when he says that no lables will have Julius Malema on them because the label is JUJU To F123up Floyd I ma glad that you called the designer of the clothes a liar and you cannot demand anything on behalf of ANCYL. Lets see what Mr Ramabodu has to say about your bulls12t

  • wayne.alexander1 - 2011-12-12 10:36

    What no purple suit?

  • Msholozi - 2011-12-12 10:39

    leave president JM alone he is resting before returning for the next elections to run the ANC

      George - 2011-12-12 12:13

      .....into the ground aswell.....

      George - 2011-12-13 16:06

      JM logo will also feature in children's nappies.

  • Helmut - 2011-12-12 10:50

    Maybe it is a misunderstanding and he is selling cloth lines? Or he has given up on the idea of having his own label because he couldn't get a stall at Bruma Flea Market?

  • damonsb - 2011-12-12 11:04

    Hi...i`m selling JuJu carp at 2 rand ,any buyers

      George - 2011-12-12 12:25

  • Blade - 2011-12-12 11:32

    Juju just keeps on popping a turd that just wont flush.

      George - 2011-12-12 12:13

  • Eric - 2011-12-12 11:39

    Is it not weird. many commenters saying they sick of reading etc. about Julius but yet they make comments everyday on News 24 about Julius and many other people. So is it ok to blab off ones opinions but it is not ok for people like Julius to do this.

  • Travis - 2011-12-12 12:00

    The Devil wears JuJu!

  • hosia.modiga - 2011-12-12 12:17

    "President Julius Malema"I think you made a mistake comrade he's no longer the president of the youth leaque.

  • George - 2011-12-12 12:24

    Overalls that wont work and sleeves that work only after a backhand

  • Lionel - 2011-12-12 14:59

    Wanna have a laugh at Juju's expense? Do so here: Enjoy and share!

  • George - 2011-12-13 16:02

    I would kill for a juju beret. tough it has been canned.

  • Celtis - 2011-12-13 16:15

    Dear Mister Malema, can I please use your name for my new product to be launched shortly. Your brand will be perfect for our new toilet paper.

  • Archie - 2011-12-13 16:26

    Imagine Julius Malema toilet paper!what satisfaction when you wipe your butt and flush it down the looooooooooo!Full face prints will sell the best

      Celtis - 2011-12-13 16:39

      Archie, please note the Malema toilet paper takes no s#t from the boere so best use the John Wayne toilet paper unless you’re an American Indian.

  • Kobus - 2011-12-13 16:51

    I would hang his tshirt in my gardeners toilet to keep the flies away....
