No new party for Malema

2012-05-14 12:46

Johannesburg - Julius Malema will never start his own political party despite being kicked out of the ANC, the expelled ANC Youth League president said in Johannesburg on Monday.

"It has never crossed my mind. I will never do that," Malema said at his first press conference following his ousting last month by the party's national disciplinary appeals committee.

"My blood is black, green and gold. I will die in the ANC. I will stay and sleep here, outside the gate of the ANC. My umbilical cord was buried here in the ANC," he said, wearing a white ANC open necked shirt and a mini-beret.

"This is my home and nobody is going to chase me away from my home. Even if I am pushed by my parent who refuses to take responsibility."

Denies dictator comment

He denied calling President Jacob Zuma a dictator, saying he was discussing leadership styles in the party, and was not criticising Zuma as an individual.

Instead, the media had escalated his comments until they found their way onto his disciplinary charge sheet.

"I was analysing leadership styles in the ANC since 1912," said Malema.

"I said there were issues handled in a manner not so democratic. So I was not declaring an individual as a dictator but I was actually analysing the present material condition in the African National Congress."

He continued: "But... people played the man instead of the ball. Evaluating does not only mean I must only speak good about you... and then I got a letter... summarily suspended."

Malema accused the ANC leadership of taking decisions based on editorial comments, saying "five or six" charges against him were based on what newspapers had written.

Survived on handouts

But on studying video footage, three were withdrawn and he was expelled on the grounds of two charges.

"That's the logic of discipline in the ANC."

Malema denied receiving any money from businessman and Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale.

"I have not received his money, Tokyo. If he had given me I would not be ashamed. I would not be receiving money with blood... But I will not refuse money."

If Sexwale offered him money to pay his gardener he would take it.

"Let me tell you I have survived on handouts," he said, speaking of his days with the Congress of SA Students.

He would not discuss reports that he owed the taxman R10m, considering this private.

Malema was flanked by suspended secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and spokesperson Floyd Shivambu.

During introductions, Shivambu introduced them all by their youth league titles.

The three were sanctioned because they were found to have violated ANC rules of conduct over comments on Botswana, on Zuma and language directed at a journalist.

    You know when Malema says that, then tomorrow's headline will be "Malema formed a new Party!". Called the "I love to Party, Party!"

      ....."I have not received his money, Tokyo. If he had given me I would not be ashamed. I would not be receiving money with blood... But I will not refuse money." So is true that Tokyo Sexwhale has blood on his hand with Cash-In-Transit-Heist that killed many people including security staff and got people's poet Mbuli into prison when Tokyo was Gauteng Premier?. Is that why Mbeki removed Tokyo from office that time?. hmmmmmm............. Malema realy has A BIG MOUTH!!!!!

      siyadyosiba - 2012-05-14 14:32

      @Lungani, Mouth diarrhoea that's what Malema is suffering. Every time he opens his mouth, he drops insinuations the public must chew about someone.

      Foc - 2012-05-14 15:05

      Wow Lungani .... some interesting comments there .... sadly this is not the first that has been heard in the same line of speak .... add drugs to that list and it could get really interesting ... ANC funding came from 'somewhere' .... say no more

  • Werner - 2012-05-14 12:58

    He also stated end of last year that he was done with politics and would apply himself fully to cattle farming.

      Sharon - 2012-05-14 13:10

      yup, milking is something he found that he is really good at! Ask Tokyo...

      rbphiri - 2012-05-14 13:44

      In the news tonight: Tokyo Sex-a-whale says he will be running against president Jacob Zuma for president. Tokyo starred in the movie Free Willy as a perverted, little boy fascinated by the prospect of having sexual intercourse with a killer whale - critics labelled the young star, Sex-a-whale. The name remained tatooed thru out his political career.

      Alan - 2012-05-14 13:48

      eish - I thought he wanted to suppy Labola Cattle to JZ .. big market there....

  • WhiteNut - 2012-05-14 13:01

    Living on 'hand-outs' , apparently the hand-outs are worth hundreds of millions, hence an outstanding tax bill of R27millions. On your new would nt survive a day

      dewaldmontgomery - 2012-05-14 14:21

      Let him take to the sky. I'd love to see his political plane crashing down. (Metaphorically speaking, before the cronies come after me like they did to that poor Advocate on the Arms Scandal Commission).

  • Christo - 2012-05-14 13:02

    Ya like stating that you will subject yourself and adhere to the outcome of the hearing against you, dont trust a word out of his mouth.

  • rbphiri - 2012-05-14 13:03

    Where is he going to obtain funds to start a party if he already owes R15 million. "It has never crossed my mind. I will never do that," Malema said - first of all what mind is he referring to? his cranium is an oasis of ambitious imaginations. It's suprising to see that his still able to make public speeches even though he has been dismissed from his position. What is even more suprising is that there are still people who support an over weight man in a purple barney the dinosaur suit.

      Farmworker - 2012-05-14 13:29

      Talking about over weight, I think you should have watched Lindiwe(AKA Kolobe) same thing to me.

      Tsotsi-Baby - 2012-05-14 13:50

      Hes a successful Businessperson.He still makes public speeches because South Africa needs his exceptional natural intellect.The weight comment was it supposed to be a joke? #Power to the people

      Alan - 2012-05-14 13:56

      er Tsotsi - do you then imply that to be successful you have to be corrupt? As for intellect ... I would agree that it is exceptional, but probably not in the way you are thinking. whaaahaa

      Alan - 2012-05-14 13:57

      Whaahaa @ Tsotsi - a Businessperson (who owes SARS R15 mil) hmmmmm.

      Marion - 2012-05-14 14:06

      @Tsotsi-Baby - 'successful businessperson' 'exceptional natural intellect'????

      Tsotsi ... have you been drinking??

      dewaldmontgomery - 2012-05-14 14:24

      Bwahahaha. Successful? Uhm, no, accepting bribes for tenders and personal gain is everything but successful. Registering a trust in your child's name to bypass tax is hardly successful - it's theft from his very own people, plain and simple. Plus, his construction company's bridges and roads flushed away first time the rains came - that's even less successful, but it does reflect his reality: boldly tumbling down.

      dewaldmontgomery - 2012-05-14 14:26

      Yes, he'll be back, but with his own political party. Remember, he once said he'd kill for Zuma...

    Will he start a new party? Don't think so, it is way too complicated, and sounds too much like hard work.

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-05-14 13:38

      Why should JM start a new party?? He just needs a little patience, and Tokyo Sexwale, will put him where he wants too be, in the next government!!! And than most of us wished, ,we rather should have looked at the broader picture, instead of some silly hatred for JZ !!!!!

      Marion - 2012-05-14 13:57

      @Anthony - I hope you're not saying that Tokyo will be the next president of SA. A man who was too weak to make a decision between two finalists in The Apprentice is a scary prospect as president.

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-05-14 14:13

      Marion, Sure, very very likely ! And than we will understand the expression: -----------------"A wolf in sheep's clothing"------------------- It will mean the end of our democracy !!!!!

      dewaldmontgomery - 2012-05-14 14:28

      That's why it will fail. But it will attract the ignorant masses away from the ANC, and perhaps then they can focus on running this country. Although I doubt they will ever get that right.

      Marion - 2012-05-14 14:29

      @Anthony - That man displayed such weakness in my opinion. Imagine if he has to make a decision of any consequence if president of the country! God help us all.

    Thank goodness. After the mess of Cope's breakaway from the ANC, breakup within the organisation and subsequent breakfast for the press, it would be more of the same should Juju have decided to go solo. On the other hand, perhaps he is waiting till after the Mangaung conference before he strikes out alone. As long as there is hope that his buddies in the ANC may vote for his return at the conference, he cannot be seen to be a traitor to the organisation. Young Juju is a lot cleverer than many of us perceive him to be.

Change presidents every five years and drag the country deeper into the quagmire. I was very happy to note that Kgalema Motlanthe has the measure of turncoats in the ANC.

    Mouth diarrhoea that's what Malema is suffering. Before he knows he will say something that contradicts what he said last week. Eish, this young man is just not very smart. Can he just bow down, swallow his pride and do proper calculations to pave way for a bright future. He still has many people supporting him, he should just keep quiet now and work silently on a strategy that will allow him to come back strongly. I’m sure his enemies are happy every time he opens his mouth because he is exposing that he isn’t having any threatening plan in mind other than begging for pardon.

  • tumelo.theka - 2012-05-14 14:28

    with the support that you have from the ANCYL I see no valid reason for not to form a new political party, so many divorced cdes did the same, the last divorce happened in the year 2007 in Limpopo conference which Dr Mbeki lost the elections, his supporters resigned from ANC and others were hoping that maybe Dr Mbeki will form his Political Party so that they could join and he did not do such, Mr Lekota as one of his favorate formed his new party(Cope) and many people were interested to join, the party struggled a lot towards the elections due to complications in the party but my point is that you stands a good chance of forming you own political party.

      Alan - 2012-05-14 14:39

      Yeah - but the 'tender' money has dried up for Juju, and there is also the little mater of the reported R15 Million he owes SARS. All I can see in my Crystal Ball is Juju in an Orange Overall. The Pride of Limpopo whaahaa

  • Dipstix Dup - 2012-05-14 14:38

    Is a youth league within a political party not just another effort by the party to draw the youth to them. The youth that otherwise would have been apathetic to politics can thus be manipulated in favour of the party. The Malema saga is just another good example of what can happen if a dog turns on its master, and then later realizes that you should not bite the hand that feeds you. Well done ANC, you are so successful in showing the control (or lack of it) of your underlings. The youth league and its leaders will backfire on you every time. This is just the beginning!
