Malema sounds Mangaung warning

2012-03-18 22:57

Kimberley - Suspended ANC Youth League president Julius Malema on Sunday sounded a thinly-veiled warning to the present ANC leaders that they could be unseated at the ANC's elective conference in Mangaung.

He said some leaders have become arrogant on power given to them by the masses and warned against another Polokwane elective conference, which led to the recall of the country's former president, Thabo Mbeki.

“Never be ahead of the masses,” said Malema to a cheering crowd of youths in Kimberley.

Malema told the gathering the ANC was formed for economic freedom due to land grabs by settlers.

“The rest [voting rights] came afterwards, but fundamentally it was about economic freedom and unity of Africans.”

Before Malema addressed the crowd, Northern Cape ANCYL chair Shadrack Tlhaole saluted Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe as leader, and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula as secretary general of the ANC.

    It's that guy again... what's his name? Someone the ANC used to know...

  • Brendan Cluley - 2012-03-18 23:57

    start worrying about the masses and actually do somthing constructive you little boy!

    Fascinating how these political parties function. So different to most organizational structures and norms. I know that when a pupil is expelled from a school, they aren't usually welcome at the Matric dance and have no say in who the principal must be. (although my understanding is that even those who attend the school have no say in this- don't like, find another school) as with businesses, fired employees don't attend the Christmas party and have no say in who the boss should be. As for threatening those in charge, this is definite no no! Never mind the reaction to racial slurs and public mocking of those in charge... Politics hey?

    He's been cast into the wilderness - keeps on coming back, perhaps he should forfeit the 4x4.

      Cracker - 2012-03-19 00:08

      He must share his wealth. Watch him in a sly move to invite the have-nots to share his farm(s). Hah! Imagine the propaganda. Luckily some can almost predict his next moves. But whatever he decides to do, the ANC and those with ambitions within the organization will not allow someone as unpredictable and volatile like Malema and his substance habits to have any authority within the ANC. Too dangerous and risky.

  • Dave Prinsloo - 2012-03-19 01:17

    it's funny when a guy so drunk he pissed his pants calls someone else a drunk

  • Timothy - 2012-03-19 03:41

    And what gives you the right to talk Mr. Malema, weren't you doing the same thing as these so called power hungry politicians? Is it comedy hour again in South Africa? Although I guess with you around every hour is comedy hour in South Africa LOL.

      @ KGALEMA PHOGOLE.. If Timothy is drunk, he will at least be sobre tomorrow but then you will still be too dumb to spell or read properly.

  • Digger - 2012-03-19 04:15

    His approach is sound. Tell the uneducated masses how done in they are and how they will be given everything for free. They are too stupid to see through him. If he was in power, would be the biggest dictator and corrupt leader thus far. He is playing the masses like little puppets and knows they will follow anyone who promises the world for nothing.

      - 2012-03-25 22:13

      The argument of the "stupid, uneducated masses" is quite unsound. What does "uneducated" mean? Does it mean "no degree" or "no education at all"? While South Africa's education system needs to be improved radically, the majority of South Africans has been inside a class room. The majority, I stress. It is quite lazy to throw around a blanket "they are stupid" argument, when faced with a complex situation requiring that one must do a bit of digging and thinking in order to understand all the issues.

    For once, he's right. But he's also preaching to a mirror.

  • Shingi Nhari - 2012-03-19 06:16

    he is undoubtedly going to play an instrumental role in the future of south africa specifically the ever changing political dynamic with emotive issues becoming more apparent from the masses as the disparity between rich and poor continues to grow

      TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-19 07:42

      Actually Shingi, latest data indicates that disparity is shrinking not growing.

      Bibi - 2012-03-19 08:20

      Shingi - All the current and top ex ANC politicians talked the same talk as Malema but like him haven't and won't walk the walk. Telling them what they want to hear and doing it for votes are very diffirent to actually meaning it. He is already a fat cat with all the bling.

      hadedah - 2012-03-19 17:18

      He is very good at sowing the seeds of disparity, in the meantime where did his wealth come from? who is behing him, that we know nothing about? Perhaps he has links with the very far northeast bretheren, who are intent on dominating the world?

      Dennis - 2012-03-19 20:31

      Shingi, no he is undoubtedly going to play an instrumental role in destroying South Aftica. If his policies were carried out it would result in massive immigration of the wealthy, educated (doctors, dentists, engineers, professors....)and any other productive person that can obtain a visa for another country. Then all foreign investment will pull out, food production disappear, unemployment will go through the roof like never before, international sanctions will follow and the poor will be worst off then they have ever imagined. Then of course will come the tribal fighting and war, because at that stage the constitution would have been thrown out and a dictator in power. The bottom line is there will always be rich and poor, the only thing we can do is try provide opportunities to those that have the drive and will to succeed. For the rest we need a stable economy and at least provide them with jobs, so they can provide for themselves. Malema’s way we will all lose in the end.

  • Chris - 2012-03-19 06:36

    The anc must really worry as their present leader is a skelm, their future leader is a dumb skelm and they have absolutely nobody that the educated electorate can look up to and respect. What a desperate position to be in, although the uneducated will always keep them in power. Such a sad case for a GREAT country.

  • pws69 - 2012-03-19 06:44

    Malema has a lot of support with the young generation. I saw that at the COSATU etolling rally. I think his supporters have a lotto mentality with him. They like what he says, yet they subconsciously know that they have a 1:13,8 million chance of getting it, but support it anyway "just in case".

      Art - 2012-03-19 20:49

      COSATU eTROLLING raaly...

      alansmartSnr - 2012-03-30 23:51

      I agree but this is one time that we should all support a common cause in so far as resisting the e-tolling system. I am anti strike and anti toi toi but this is one issue as well as the "secret information" bill which we should all oppose.

    Malemas brothers and sisters got into my veggie patch again last night.They made an awful mess of my cucumbers.

  • Grant - 2012-03-19 07:01

    Malema is popular in SA because there is so much poverty and unemployment amongst the uneducated youth. The ANC government have failed the youth whilst enriching themselves for the last 18 years. If Malema was to die today, someone would replace him tomorrow. All it takes is to be a rabble rouser who promises hope for the future without explaining what needs to be done.

      schalkjburger - 2012-03-19 08:07

      The ANC did not 'fail the youth'! Do you really think this government WANTS the massses educated? Are you NUTS!? With a educated mayority, they are quite well aware that they would not be able to hang on to power. The more the people are educated and uplifted, the more they will see the ANC for what it is. Do not for one moment think that the ANC will educate or uplift. It's not good for their 'business'. The ANC cadre's have tasted the good life...and the more they help the masses,the less of it there will be for them. As long s they can blame the previous regimes for all their troubles, they will...and the masses will keep struggling. Its time for people to wake up to the new struggle. The struggle against financial oppression and the new corruption of our state. Our leaders do not serve the people ...they are self entitled and greedy and only in it for what they can get out of it.

      Piet - 2012-03-19 11:02

      @schalkjburger - you have hit the nail squarely on the head. IMHO you need a medal :-)

      Jacqui - 2012-03-19 12:19

      Grant if you send Father Christmas into these areas everyone is running around cheering the old guy. Does that mean he is very popular or are they just naturally enthusiastic. After all it's not every day a sleigh or a million rand car makes its appearance in Dustville is it?.

      Bambanani - 2012-03-19 12:40

      sure,but surely he is a clown,we need clown we cant be always serous,people like him are needed in society to make us laugh and to warn children not to be like that.

      Phomolo Senye - 2012-03-20 10:18

      Schalk the truth are so spot on..nice because you are not mincing say it exactly like it is..dont know how long it will take the masses to realize and know that!!! without confusing the whole thing with race..

  • Trevor - 2012-03-19 07:03

    LMAO...this has all been predicted by the "Intellectual Afrikaaners" over 30-40 years ago, something the NP said would NEVER happen because the Africans will NEVER rule SA, they not able to...the Intellectuals predicted that the ANC would take control of SA, Apartheid would fail as it has in every other country in history, you are NOT able to suppress a section of the population HOWEVER,what will happen is that the ANC itself will emplode and be torn apart by internal factions who are hungry for control and it has NOTHING to do with the "White Man". So far these ou ballies have hit the nail right on the head with their predictions. Even here in Europe, the latest news coming this way is showing SA to be going down EXACTLY the same road as Zimbabwe, in fact as EVERY OTHER African state on the continent, Fraud and corruption they say is RIFE in South Africa, oh how the mighty have fallen.

      TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-19 07:44

      Yeah. Keep running dude.

      Jason - 2012-03-19 08:13

      "intellectual Afrikaaner" I heard about that guy "joking". South Africa will become another Zimbabwe, We hear all these silly theory's all the time it goes back toe swaart gewaar mentality, yes we have our problems but what nation doesn't corruption and political scandal's. Its hardly a African only problem. If you think that maybe its time to broaden so horizons.

      Jacqui - 2012-03-19 12:21

      Trevor,enjoy your life where ever you are. The mighty here had clay feet from the beginning and I can't wait for it to turn to dust.

      Jacqui - 2012-03-19 12:23

      Jason, some broadening of your horizons won't be a bad thing either.

      roguewrecker - 2012-03-20 15:07

      Unfortuanately, this is a reality not to be taken lightly. Whereas in Zimbabwe, the whites were physically oppressed, removed from their property and discriminated against, the ANC has taken a much shrewder approach to oppressing the whites. This is the economic approach (BEE), using legislation. On physical oppression, I believe that the criminals are doing a good job of culling the whites, and installing fear into them. They (statassists) relate crime to unemployment, but this is utter nonsense as I am an unemployed white male, and the thought of murdering someone, hijacking, or breaking into someone’s house is not an option which has crossed my mind. These same criminals are also given the privilege to vote!?

    Keep it up JuJu, think at the end of the day we are going to owe you a massive "Thank You" for being the tool - and I use the phrase advisedly - that tears apart the ANC. Much nicer to hear you whinging on & complaining about how your "parents" have mistreated you than your demands for farms, mines, factories etc to satisfy your ego. With T-Bone now also climbing in on the act we may just get a break here, if you know what I mean.

    Hopes he keeps on threatening the leadership of ANC, they will have to get rid of him before that. JZ surely realizes that, as he did it to Mbeki.

  • Ntokozo V Zwane - 2012-03-19 08:54

    \charity starts at home\ someone please enlighten JMalema that the fact that Limpopo hates him proves alot about the type of person he is, this dude has support (that i cant deny) and i blame education, lack thereof, of the youth for this. Im stil waiting for this mans avid supporters to explain to me what he has done for the youth since taking office except running his mouth saying nonsense that will induce cheers from my peers.. Didnt Zuma outline why mines wont be nationalised already? Or does this guy just not have anything else to blind the youth with? Funny how he never brings up the most important topic in regards to the youth which is EDUCATION.

      Wesley Trollope - 2012-03-19 14:15

      You are clearly an educated man and I wish it was intellect like your that we had taking care of things for us. But sadly unless our leaders step up and take care of this clown we are in trouble. And u are 100 % right education is very much lacking. We can only hope that the powers that be see this before it is to late. They speak of economy ha ha ha !!! You give a wise man money and he will make the money work for him and make it grow but give a stupid man money and watch it disappear. Anyway respect to your out looks man

      sandy.langenstrass - 2012-03-20 15:12

      Ntokozo, you're so right...He will not have any supporters if they get enlightened person would follow his foolishness.Therefore it's the last thing Malema will be urging his young fans( I say his fans because he is one big act ).

  • sandy.langenstrass - 2012-03-19 09:30

    "Some leaders have become arrogant"..WHAT!..THE MOST ARROGANT IS MALEMA. Why is Malema concerning himself with Mangaung, he should be safely tucked away behind bars by then...

      alansmartSnr - 2012-03-31 00:14

      @ Sandra.. I agree - He probably will get screwed by SARS and the Hawks sooner or later, but so will Zuma unless he can get the Constitution ammended. I see a dark moon rising for both these morons and even some other Fat Cats. Me thinks the D.A. will bring them both down.. eventually.

    Expulsion of Malema will be welcomed by most whites and blacks who wish to be white and it is understandable. But what remains is that until the economic situation is addressed, the Malemas will not be stopped. Sorry to those blacks who do not want economic equality for all.

      Jacqui - 2012-03-19 12:29

Hopefully the ANC's top brass has seen the nature of this rabid animal. It would be self destructive to the ANC to carry on nurturing this idiot and could end only in one outcome - Full Dictatorship! If that happens all the ignorant masses that have supported him will no longer even have the privilege of his rhetoric, they will just be beaten into submission!
