Never surrender, says Julius Malema

2012-04-25 08:03

Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has left a voicemail message on his cellphone, saying he would never surrender.

"At the end of everything else, we will not remember the words uttered by the enemies against us but will remember the silence of our friends during these difficult times.

"Never surrender, never retreat, victory is certain," said the voicemail on Malema's phone, according to The Star newspaper on Wednesday.

He was expelled from the African National Congress on Tuesday evening, following an announcement by the National Disciplinary Committee of Appeal (NDCA).

Malema was originally suspended for five years for sowing division in the party and for bringing it into disrepute.

He was found to have done so by unfavourably comparing the leadership style of President Jacob Zuma to that of former president Thabo Mbeki, and for remarks on bringing about regime change in Botswana.

He unsuccessfully appealed, but was granted leave to present evidence in mitigation to the NDC. However, on February 29 the National Disciplinary Committee announced that the sanction against him had been changed to an expulsion.

He again appealed and it was this appeal that the NDCA dismissed on Tuesday.

    Juju is about to find out how much of a businessman he really is and I’m betting his financial status is about to go titanic on him and he knows it.

      Jacobus - 2012-04-25 08:18

      We should bail Maleme out of his financial woes... we need him more than we need the DA. HE is the ONE to tear the Cosatu/ANC/Pac from inside, and no-one else. We need Julius Malema. Think, people, think.

      Jacobus, only the corrupt money in your organization could bail him out, because there is PLENTY of it, and he's deep in the crap!

      Greg - 2012-04-25 09:04

      Tragic, he's now going to have to find a job like every other South African and live a normal life...I don't know how he's going to do it!!

      I haven't read the text of his expulsion, but I understand that poetic words like "bloody Angent", "Bastard", "Revolutionary party", "Guards take this thing out", etc, where not used. He was merely thrown out after being informed that, as a small boy who cannot behave in a revolutionary house, he was too 'tjatjarag' and was told not to come back there no more.

      Ja boet, flogging a dead horse is what you lot do best! Lardboy Malema is facing SARS, the Budgies(for what the Hawks are worth these days) the Public Protector and Zille for being as dumb as mud. The problem is, tribe-leader Zoomer removed his protection so he is screwed!

      @ Tsotsi from what I've picked up on your posts you sound like you worship Malema,hae you heard of God? He does not come in the form of Malema.

  • frans.visserdsb - 2012-04-25 08:19

    ok... this has now gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. how is the voicemail message of an expelled ANC member newsworthy? Slow news day? If his defiant attitude was not so sad, it would have been funny. JUJU, grow up. They don't want you. come clean with the dirty laundry - THAT would be news. For example, how did the Prez go from someone living on handouts from Shabby to building a R60million plus compound in Nkandla in a few short years? The Prez doesn't earn THAT much?

      Bless Boswell - 2012-04-25 08:32

      Fran's, that is a daft question. He's the prez, he can do as he pleases. He behaves as he pleases, screws whomever he pleases, marries whomever he pleases and upgrades whichever home he pleases. You can't expect him to account for money spent, he's the prez!

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-04-25 08:55

      @Bless - I really thought in my innocence that we are now living in a democracy, where people are accountable when they are in public office for spending public money...Then i woke up and realised that sadly we are just another Country in Africa being ruled by an inept kleptocracy, whose arrogance is such that they do not really care if people ask questions, because the masses will vote for them till the end of time.. I actually think the dumbing down of the education system is deliberate, very much like Verwoerd's apartheid education - keep the masses uneducated, and they will not know any better...Maybe the ANC expelling Julius is a good thing for the country, maybe he will come clean with all the corruption in the government out of spite. His followers may then realise that the ANC is not all they pretend to be...and his followers are the fanatical uneducated masses who will otherwise vote for the ANC until forever...

      Deon - 2012-04-25 09:32

    Well if he goes to court with the S.A.R.S thing he is going to play the poverty game and Legal Aid will be given to him and sad to say my friends we will be paying for this so he ends up winning again. Mr Malema wont' just go away. If convicted his reason to get out of jail will be he is diabetic and does not have long to live and needs to play golf and smoke Havana cigars .He has been selling off his possessions lately so the tax man cannot attach them and who knows where the proceeds have gone my guess is his trust account has been emptied too

      Eish Lerato... She did not call blacks from the EC refugees... she said refugees from the failed education system in the EC is flooding the WC education system. anyway, calling someone a refugee is not a racist term. please tell me if the education system in the EC has not failed.

      Schalk - 2012-04-25 09:00

      Rob - 2012-04-25 08:56

      Because educated people DO NOT respect uneducated would be politicians, who encourage racial hatred. The fact that so many blacks support him, means that you support what he stands for, which would set this country back even further. That makes his supporters white haters & racists too.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-04-25 09:01

      Its more like when comrade JZ was suspended,leaving the party was the last option, most wrote him off(as it is now).they probably tried to silence him, but the results were a complete opposite, that's how cope formed. Mangaung might form CopeYouthLeague....

      Deon - 2012-04-25 10:01

    The Malema fans must remember that the branches of the ANC do not owe them anything, unlike their corrupt freands, so voting will be based on who they thinkl can take the organisation forward, so its wishfull rhinking that Mangaung is a forgone conclusion.
