Malema ready for land backlash

2013-09-26 17:13

Pretoria - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema said on Thursday he realised his supporters would be severely punished if they took land without compensation.

"We know once we take this land forcefully, they will use the economy to fight us," he said in Pretoria.

Malema was speaking outside the Theo van Wijk building at the University of SA (Unisa) after management denied him and his supporters access to the hall.

He told the large crowd which had gathered to listen to him that Africa was rich, while its occupants were poor.

He said the Europeans on the continent were richer than the natives.

"That has to change. If you take the land, you take everything that comes with it. You take the seed. It won't be the Indian Ocean in Africa, it will be the African ocean," he said.

He told followers to tell those who said they were punishing the wrong people that a wound did not rot in Sesotho.

He sought to assure white people that genocide would not be committed to get the land back, and said they were brothers who had a right to live in the country.

"No white men must leave their land because they are forced. You're our brothers, but we can't have greedy brothers. We want a peaceful process. Those who have taken our land must not be arrogant," he said.

He encouraged whites to agree to land distribution without compensation, and not to listen to the African National Congress as it could not guarantee their safety.

Anger boiling

The safety of whites was in the hands of the black majority.

"Anger is boiling inside. One day, people will rise and claim the land and it will not be controllable," he said.

He said the question of what the people would do with the land should not be an issue, as Africans had worked the land long before being colonised.

Whites had only brought ways of working the land faster.

"We were also mining in Mapungubwe and trading with Asians long before," he said.

Malema criticised the university's management for denying him entry into the hall, and said he was one of its registered students and had a right to be there.

He was not scared of anyone and if the university believed he was there illegally, he should be thrown out.

"There is no one in this campus who can stop me. I will never be scared to stand up for what I believe in. They must tell people the truth if I'm lying and not threaten me with death because I will never retreat."

He said the actions of university management were irresponsible.

The cancellation was due to threats by members of the SA Students' Congress to disrupt proceedings.

Manhandle them

Members of the two organisations insulted one another, and a scuffle resulted in Sasco members being injured. Malema encouraged his supporters to protect meetings.

"You must manhandle them if there is a need. Never behave like cowards. Protect meetings, do whatever it takes to ensure [the] meeting goes ahead," he said, speaking through a loud-hailer.

National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu) Unisa chair Ntsako Nombelani accused the EFF of provoking members of Nehawu and Sasco.

He said he did not understand how the meeting had gone ahead following communication with Unisa management about the cancellation.

"We were told yesterday [Wednesday] that the event was cancelled because the people who invited them no longer met the bargaining threshold," he said.

Nombelani said charges would be laid against the EFF.

Unisa SRC president Brian Mphahlele accused Malema of destabilising education and of not having the best interests of students at heart.

Sasco's Unisa chair Solly Nkuna said earlier only registered students would be allowed into the ZK Matthews Hall, where Malema had been expected to speak.

"We have vowed to disrupt any talk given by Malema," said Nkuna.

"We took a position that non-students are not going to enter or participate. We will destabilise everything until such a point that students are the only ones left inside [the hall]."

Not another Zimbabwe

He accused university management of turning Unisa into a platform for unhappy former African National Congress members.

Malema, the ANC Youth League's former leader, was expelled from the party in 2012.

Nkuna said Sasco had a duty to protect the "rainbow nation" and would not support an organisation that wanted to forcefully grab land.

"The issue must be addressed accordingly. We can't allow our country to become like Zimbabwe," he said.

"We won't support Malema as he talks about grabbing land from the whites."

EFF supporters sang: "One Zuma, one idiot", while holding their hands above their heads to represent a showerhead.

"Malema is coming" and "Julius sent us because we are not afraid", they sang.

      The fact that the EFF is even considering trying a landgrab shows they are young because they have no idea of what they will face when they meet war vet's and well trained opposition in a battle scenario. The should maybe do research first about what happened in the bush war. Numbers means nothing, but go ahead, maybe they need to be taught a lesson.

      Beckie Knight - 2013-09-27 06:39

      If someone, somewhere, somehow, could please tell us "white" thives, who actually stole the land he's talking about? I've gone back in history, thousands of years (not ANC history - just plain, history) and nowhere can I find that black people actually OWNED any land in SA? I mean, HOW did they get it? Did they buy it from someone? Did they develop anything on any land? Do they have any Title Deeds to prove anything? Do they have any written documentation? I know that Hottentots and Bushmen were at the Cape when the Dromedaris docked. So, I don't know exactly how the nine different tribal languages came about? As far back as I've gone in history I see that black folk ALL came from East, West and North Africa and then, spotting and smelling the wealth in the South, descended upon the South of Africa by the thousands which became millions. So, "Malemmer" (mad bucket) where and how do YOU prove that the land was stolen? You know, as they say in the classics... "prove it, beyond reasonable doubt..." Kolobe, Kolobe - yes, please, prove it.

      Central Intelligence Agency US The ANC will take over South Africa without a single shot, but within 20 years, like it always is in Africa, there will be a revolution in South Africa. The Boers will, like they always do, fight with the Bible in the one hand, and a rifle in the other, and once again change the history of that country.

      The facts mean nothing to these people. Trying to prove a idiot that hes wrong is like trying to teach a fish to ride a bicycle. Never going to happen. Julius is promising thieves someone else's wealth and they cannot wait to start looting, that is why his rhetoric is so popular. Noone cares about injustices of land. But these people can never ever create wealth on their own. They can only steal someone elses fortune, and by the next morning they will be hungry and poor again. That's the reality.

      Jacques De Villiers - 2013-09-27 09:45

      We whites want to live in peace, but if you make us your enemy, we have money, we will buy a whole army to fight you...so try whatever you want.

      Billy Bob - 2013-09-27 10:33

      how about; white people will leave Africa, when ALL black people leave the rest of the world and move back to Africa. give back your cellphones and your soccer balls. get back in your mud hut and go back to drinking spit beer. give back all western medicine, so you can die of TB and malaria again. there's your EFF. free of economy, because there will be none. then you can fight each other for scraps of food. OR, you can stop whining like a child and join the rest of the world. WORK FOR WHAT YOU WANT.

      Thabo, They have proven that blacks came from northern Africa by means of DNA testing....and we all know that the bones never lie. Plus African slavery was started in Northern Africa by the Arabs. Hence most of Northern Africa has a strong Muslim presence. The blacks moved away to prevent being attacked by the slave traders!! Blacks in those days had spears and were no match against the guns used by the Arab slave traders, and any sane person would leave a area to preserve ones own life The history that we refer to was written down hundreds of years ago. In many cases the original documents are still available. Same as the Arabs had written language. What written history do you have from say 300 to 400 years ago??? As far as I am aware your history was passed down from generation to generation via verbal folklore. And verbal folklore can very easily be changed by the person telling it to embellish their or their clan's status!!

      Drommedaris Voortrekker - 2013-09-27 12:40

      Thabo Tman - 2013-09-27 12:48

      @Silvia Van Eck thanks for the "facts" but here is what I am saying. AFRICANS, be they from East, West, North or South are exactly that..... AFRICANS. They are of African origin. Europeans are not or African origins. Whether you say the other 9 tribes come from elsewhere in Africa is meaningless, they are AFRICANS and people of European origin are not. THAT IS MY FACT. Anyway, I really don't have issues against white people... I have said this before. White people are not the problem. The problem is the system which promotes the status quo.

    The day malema and his followers start forcefully taking land is the day whites and afrikaners will become militirized and organized...and when that happens this country will explode into all out civil war...land owners are peacefull because they want this country to work...forcefully take their land and possesions and you risk stirring a new generation of "bittereinders"

      @Mouteng. Neither are we but who is always threatening who? The guys here are trying to warn you what will happen, If whites started to say they wanted more land and black peoples stuff, and that they will take it by force, are you going to keep quiet? be honest. It does not matter what happened in the past, you are threatening people now, in the present, and nobody likes to be threatened. We deal with it the way we know how and were trained to do, would you be saying these things if you numbered the same as whites? I don't think so, does it not worry you that even though we are outnumbered we are not scared? I am not talking about every white, but trust me those that have been trained are waiting to prove a point. I am just stating a fact, no use hiding the truth, these things need to be brought out in these forums or else how are we to gauge each others feelings and sentiment. Once the people here understand what war will bring they might come to their senses.

      I agree with you fully Dylan, im very happy to see people commentin like and what I was sayin was that what ian is sayin is gonna cause war and they are so many lazy people out there who will welcome this opportunity....look at what happened to the somalians at eastern cape,all their shops were empty after some lazy people looted their shops

    EFF talks to people's emotions, but despite past hostilities, we can't suddenly deny fellow citizens their rights simply because they happen to be white. The land issue is valid and needs to be addressed, and it is tha ANC's chaotic handling of this issue that gives rise to prophets of anarchy. This country needs healing more than more violence,

      Jonathan Woods - 2013-09-26 19:12

      Themba, thank god there are still sensible people like you who look at the issue in a rational way. And I think most would agree that the anc have failed badly on this issue like so many others, where they have made promises that they have failed to follow through on. I am sure if wise methods are used it will benefit all the people of this country. It would be a disaster for land to be ruined for the wrong reasons. People who genuinely want to farm must get the relevant education so that they can succeed. It does not matter to me who owns the land as long as I can still get food.

Malema and his cronies will get 99% of all the good land and everyone else will get a block in the desert somewhere. He should be fighting for better education, healthcare, less crime, less poverty, the important stuff. America stopped us from producing our own HIV medication on the cheap that could have saved the lives of hundreds of thousands each year, why isn't he angry about that?

      If I for one second believed that he was a sincere, honest, honourable man, I would listen to what he has to say. But he is a common crook, a proven tax evader (which in my mind is just robbing the country) who likes the fame and attention that comes with his position. I do believe that we need to rebalance the terrible inequality in this country, I do believe that everybody has the right to a future full of possibility and I truly believe that the way to do this is to make sure that every single child is given a world class education. As the saying goes: Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, TEACH a man how to fish, you feed him for life!!! What good is land if you don't know how to use it?

    'He sought to assure white people that genocide would not be committed to get the land back'...... sounds like a veiled threat. Already farmers are being murdered at an alarming rate. This man is the biggest threat to S A stability, his supporters are the people seeking quick riches because they feel entitled, if they cant get rich innovately, honestly, they just steal it,( just like their leader did in Limpopo), because they feel entitled. True, SA has a huge disparity between the poor and the rich, but you can not empower the poor by disempowering the rich, and the inequitable distribution of land is an emotive issue, but the ANC is in the process of addressing this problem..... Threatening to go ZIMBOBWE will not enrich the majority or encourage investment that will reduce poverty. The average poor SA would rather be employed than toil the soil for subsistence.

  • Jeremy Vanderwant - 2013-09-26 19:00

    Only in SA are there so many people who don't know why you have to pay to get things. These are not political supporters, these are simply thieves. They think the answer is to take things without paying. If you were trying to create a profitable company together instead of a dishonest political campaign, maybe you would acquire enough money to buy land. There are after all no longer any legal obstacles to Africans owning land and doing business. There haven't been for twenty odd years. Be honest and recognise that making farms profitable is never really going to happen, especially if you intend to raise one goat and a jug of beer for every fifty hectares (go have a look at say, the land in between Ugie and Umtata. One or two farmers who work hard, but most lack the know how and even the inclination.) Realise also that you do not want land. You want revenge because white people make more money than you do. As I said, there is nothing stopping you from trying to create a business instead of following this mindless hippo around. He just wants to be the boss. He doesn't have any policy other than to inflame racial intolerance and try to create hatred. He learned how to profit by bullying people long ago and it is all he has ever done. Anyone who would like life coaching and training in the art and science of creating your own small business is most welcome to contact me via my facebook profile. You will just have to figure out what to click in order to get there.

  • Ali Motaung - 2013-09-26 19:01

    Not sure how this land-grab is gonna work! Have the EFF guys done some research on land ownership ie which land is in Govt, private ownership and/or which is un-accounted for?

    see if you can reclaim your rotten cabbage farm from SARS before you talk about the other farms :/

      Wish Masilela - 2013-09-26 21:25

      that land is not owned by sars, a white south african bought it 4rm sars. So he will be forced to share it

  • MJS1234 - 2013-09-26 19:41

    What I find so funny about this whole issue is that most of the "land" that people are demanding is not actually owned by the occupants but by the banks. Anybody tried to get credit or a bond lately? You honestly think that the banks are just going to hand over the land? Study hard, work hard and enjoy the rewards, now thats economic freedom!!!

  • Monica Clark - 2013-09-26 19:44

    There are around 15000 commercial farms in South Africa. Even if all of this farms will be taken forcefully it will please 15 thousand people. What about the other millions of south Africans people? The most important issues is for the millions of south Africans to have food on the tables no matter what colour the farmers is.

  • Adam Kruger - 2013-09-26 19:45

    How wil the redistribution work? Will only eff supporters be entitled to land? Do they need to be a party member? Or can any person just claim to have voted eff and be entitled? Who will be benificaries of the more affluent areas? Who is going to produce food for our nation to eat? Malema had his hand at farming and that did not work? Any other policies and sollutions to problems appart from nationalisation and land grabs? Having a house does not put food on your table, you need to work for that?

      Khomotso Sithole - 2013-09-26 22:20

      who works in those farms on a daily basis?the answer is black ppl dnt act as if black knw nothing abt farming cauz ur wrong

      Roland Frost - 2013-09-26 22:54

      Eish Adam, so many questions for Julius to answer? Do you honestly think he is capable of answering them?

      Thembekile Ngamlane - 2013-09-27 11:11

      which system did the apartheid use boy?

  • Andre Du Rand - 2013-09-26 19:48

    Tsebo, think quick, o sorry u cant, lets just say there is the land for all those 'skwattas' as u say, then what bro......?

      Tsebo Ke Maatla Mokoena - 2013-09-26 19:57

      My point exactly, why there are only Blacks @ 'skwatta' camp, the ANC has betrayed us big time. Andre your time is over bro also think quick.

      Roger Harrison - 2013-09-26 21:51

      @Wish. That's a very big "IF"

  • Paul Gaydon - 2013-09-26 19:57

    Dont try it! We will fight like all hell.

  • Mosupi Gabriel Rabothata - 2013-09-26 20:06

    Lets not fight about this issue again. A deal was made way back in 1993, that land will remain in the hands of those who owned it. Lets make peace with it n pay our bonds. Peace!

      Sammy Manamela - 2013-09-26 21:40

      n who a those owners if i may ask buda?

      Hester Ferrezuelo - 2013-09-27 12:17

      This in response to Sammy. Sammy it belongs to those who have worked for it and who are paying bonds, water and lights, rates and taxes and keeping the economy of the country going. You are all so filled with greed!!! Do you honestly believe that every white person who owns a home is bond free? Or has not paid thousands for that home? C'mon now, even Juju cannot be that naive!!!

  • Phumutso Madinane - 2013-09-26 20:33

    We need a different approach.... Our people want the land and whatever pain that comes with demanding the land, we must be ready for that pain or else there will never be any method to deliver this land

      Marc Thomas - 2013-09-27 12:04

      not at the expense of other people .. dont come take stuff that does not belong to you ..there is enough free land ...people need to start from the bottom to be able to reep the benefits and not just take off ..doesnt work like that ..

      Hester Ferrezuelo - 2013-09-27 12:19

      and then Phumutso??? those who are left still without land?? Will it be fine for them then to come and take from you??

  • Bee Dee Kay - 2013-09-26 20:40

    malema, mate, accept it, you're irrelevant, stop trying to change this you desperate fool. You just makin an idiot of y'self. Go farm or make tables with your woodwork skills man! lol!

  • Thembani Tshabalala - 2013-09-26 20:46

    Malema is a ticking time bomb and if not appraised carefully. He willl cause chaos if undermined. His target market is people that have nothing to lose. This is ANC fault with its partiethc leadership. This is the time people need to sober up and put an end to what might end as a disaster. Your vote is your voice and this time it is crucial.

  • Deon K. Alexander - 2013-09-26 21:01

    Is this Julius normal...and does he have an IQ...

      Pateng Elias - 2013-09-26 22:34

      U must start by asking your mother whether verwoed was sane before asking this stupid question u idiot

      Bruno Rech - 2013-09-27 00:26

      At least his mother passed wood work. Ha ha. Idiot

      Hester Ferrezuelo - 2013-09-27 12:22

      Well Pateng, you brought this up. In contrast to either Juju or Zuma, In 1925, Verwoerd obtained a doctorate at Stellenbosch University (the pass rate was then much more than 30%) and then went to America and Europe, where he did post-graduate studies at a number of universities, including Hamburg and Berlin. So, he did have a little more than Grade 3.

  • Bertus Pretorius - 2013-09-26 21:29

    Yes, Phumutso, grab your shovel and hoe and let's produce food. Who needs to worry about input capital? I mean, diesel and fertilizer just falls from the sky. Tractors, ploughs and planters just repairs themselves. And who needs to worry about the rains after putting thousands of rands into a crop? The countless nights of nights trying to get the necessary done before the summer is over will pay for itself. Who needs to get the seeds in the ground and see to the nurturing therof? They grow themselves, dont they? Hurrah for food security! !!

  • Bertus Pretorius - 2013-09-26 21:33

    All these happy chaps calling for land. Do you even know how to produce a successful crop? Do you know about the capital input to get the crop started? Diesel, maintenance and other costs? No? Then STFU about calling for land

  • Tshepo Joseph Masooa - 2013-09-26 21:58

    we just need our land back

      Wish Masilela - 2013-09-26 23:38

      we'll take them forcefully if they're not willing to share

  • Isaac Thokwana - 2013-09-26 22:06

    The white people make me laugh always by saying the land belongs to San and Khoi as if this people are europeans , guys these people are Africans like sotho and nguni . And sotho groups acknowledge them as Barwa(people of the south) stop reminding us what we know ,its like saying nothing .

      Hartmut Balzer - 2013-09-26 22:40

      Isaac, sit down and learn if you can. In any school is HISTORYa subject.

      Bruno Rech - 2013-09-27 00:36

      This hole argument is futile and stupid. We all came from africa. Millions and millions of years ago. At what point did white peoples lose entitlement to the land..??

      Pete Mears - 2013-09-27 08:21

      It's nobody's land. We just happen to stay here...
