Mpumalanga Cosas backs Malema

2011-04-02 19:34

Johannesburg - The Congress of SA Students (Cosas) in Mpumalanga said on Saturday that it was behind the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) president Julius Malema serving a second term.

"Comrade Julius Malema is adequate to the generation of Walter Sisulu, Nelson Mandela and other compatriot comrades who where concerned about economical transformation," provincial chairperson Tefo Radebe said in a statement.

This came after Cosas' national leadership said Malema was giving the ANCYL a bad name and it would not back him for a second term.

Cosas president Bongani Mani said the congress would rather support the league's Gauteng chairman Lebogang Maile, who is also the province's MEC for sport, culture, arts and recreation.

However Radebe denounced the claims made by the national leadership saying it was never discussed at national executive committee level.

"We join our comrades in Gauteng and the Free State in supporting Julius Malema and his collective for the youth league congress," Radebe said.

      The story merely demonstrates the stupidity of the Mpumalanga branch of Cosas, despite the measure of good common-sense shown by their national leadership.

    Because he pledges quick fix solutions that will never work in the long run, like nationalisation.

    "comrades ... concerned about economical transformation," Tefo Radebe: Please tell us what economical transformation is.

      Azurite - 2011-04-02 22:36

      Economical does NOT equal economics!

    Mamparalanga would of course do just this.

    being in the educational system in sa ("the students of mpumalanga and their leadership"), therefore being educated, does not provide you with much common sense.

    Julius speak out of fear of intimidation and favouritism and he bodly pronouce on all of things that confront south african with the intention of advancing them. for that reason i support mpumalanga, free state and gauteng for supporting Julius for a second term at the helm of youth league in south africa.
