Malema to visit Zimbabwe

2012-10-12 07:16

Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema will visit Zimbabwe on Friday, the Economic Freedom Fighters said.

Malema would meet "progressive forces in Zimbabwe" to discuss economic freedom, spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said in a statement on Thursday.

"During the visit, [Malema] will also attend the wedding of the deputy secretary general of the Pan African Youth Union and member of ZANU-PF Youth, Comrade Tendai Wenyika."

Malema would be accompanied by Shivambu and suspended ANCYL secretary general Sindiso Magaqa.

"Economic Freedom Fighters will forever associate with and interact with progressive forces across the country, the African continent and whole world and will never be ashamed," Shivambu said.

      1. How can he travel across International Borders while on Bail? 2. Does SA have an extradition treaty with Zim? 3. If Madbob does give him Political asylum, how will he survive? Wek?

      In reply to Leonardb1's last statement. Don't think feel Zimbabwe has suffered enough?

      heathway.master - 2012-10-13 12:11

      Malema probably feels he needs a bit of a holiday before he is locked up for good behind bars.

  • attie.gerber.1 - 2012-10-12 07:20

    maybe he is going their to get money from mugabe to pay back the money he stole in south africa including sars

      alf.pop - 2012-10-12 08:15

      Perhaps he is looking for a place to hbide from SARS. Which of his two cronies will act as his official date for the wedding and which will be the backstop?

      manny.dasilva.902 - 2012-10-12 09:19

      Sounds like a money-go-round??? Rob Peter to pay Paul to pay Bob to pay Juju? Problem is that Peter and Paul are SA taxpayers!

      KennySven - 2012-10-15 13:31

      JUJU = JUST UNEDUCATED JUST UNEDUCATED.Our little fat piggy won't be in Zim for long, Mugabe can't afford the fertilizer.

      bob.mcmillen.564 personaly I like frogs and so fell you are insulting the amphibians. Amphibians are useful, Mampara is not. I would rather refer to him as apiece of detritus lying on the bottom of the Marianas trench.

  • steveroodt - 2012-10-12 07:29

    Why was his passport not taken away he has charges pending is this not the norm.

      ansie.b.badenhorst - 2012-10-12 19:01

      At the moment he is running the country (into the ground) Of course he should get prefferential treatment!

      aristar.aristary - 2012-10-13 13:48

      Mainly because he can buy another passport on the street corner, so there is no point.

  • gary.doyle.520 - 2012-10-12 07:33

    Going to share a johnny walker with bobby. But when Mugabe sees malema becomes insignificant in SA he'll tell him to f**k off.

      ansie.b.badenhorst - 2012-10-12 19:07

      Getting his next lesson from Big Bad Bob....paying for it with tender fraud money....

  • nettie.potgieter.5 - 2012-10-12 07:34

    Shame he is visiting his grandpa Bobby!

      roiyen - 2012-10-12 07:47

      No it is visiting it's MAN. It needs cash and we all know what for. last option is for it to bend.

  • beverly.young3 - 2012-10-12 07:35

    Ha ha ha ha, read the article.......first the supposed reason for his visit, then: "oh by the way he is attending a wedding?" ha ha ha...@ wiimemv, I agreed.... The thing is, News24 like the attention our blogging brings to their pages. If you read the other papers, as I do .......sometimes this reporting is way behind. Doesnt matter really, we enjoy venting here, eases our frustrations. Ne?

    The old boere and the english should have let the africans jump on the band wagon many years ago. now look, everyone is running wild and there is no law. these africans have been moving money around since apartheid fell. now its just a matter of getting it back, using the back door structures created by the brilliant british monetary system. mooi ne...

  • johnwilliam.roberts - 2012-10-12 08:04

    please let him be killed in a car or plane crash or die of food poisoning at the wedding .

      gary.doyle.520 - 2012-10-12 08:40

      After some utter humiliation first, or is that possible with this moron??

  • - 2012-10-12 08:05

    The only people with economic freedom in zim are Mugabe and his generals. Malema's affiliation with them makes his intentions very clear.

  • danny.levin.351 - 2012-10-12 08:05

    How can a person who si out on bail be allowed to leave the country?? This scumbag should be in a cell, certainly not be allowed out of SA.

  • jurgen.eksteen - 2012-10-12 08:08

    He is trying to flee ... as far as I know part of bail condition is that you are not allowed to leave the country.

  • warren.carne.9 - 2012-10-12 08:09

    Economic Freedom Fighters? What a bunch of dickheads

  • danny.levin.351 - 2012-10-12 08:09

    @mrtinyiko.matsambu, Malema and his ilk are actually the worst nightmare of all South Africans. (He and all the other corrupt thieves) However, those that suffer the most are the poor because the money stolen could and should have been used for their benefit. Why do you think that Hospitals are a shambles, kids go without Schoolbooks for a year etc? it is because people like malema steal the money that is meant for these things. sadly, morons like you are too dumb to understand it and see it. you are easily fooled by these id1iots.

    Juluis and Bob! The new atheist regime in waiting.

      raymond.buis.3 - 2012-10-12 08:23

      Actually both bob and Julius are Christian .

      jennifer.d.martin.750 - 2012-10-12 08:30

      No Raymond they are not. Calling yourself a doctor because you visit a hospital once in a while does not make you one. They are Bosluise!

      patrick.buckley.712 - 2012-10-12 13:14

      Pure logic dictates that they are not atheist. Atheists are generally rather intelligent, unlike the: "because the bible tells me so" christian morons one finds. They are definitely christian!

      Dinesh - 2012-10-12 14:34

      You are delusioned. These 2 people are Christians, the last time I checked.

    What are this fools bail conditions? He is not allowed to travel outside SA? What a bloody circus. 1) Zim gets a HUGE loan from SA. 2) Zim buys a shutload of weapons and munitions.3) Malema goes to Zim. HKBGK!
