Show Malema some mercy - Sexwale

2011-10-11 08:30

Johannesburg - Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale has appealed for mercy for ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, according to a report on Tuesday.

“When you are young you go wrong - we fix you and you go wrong again and we fix you, not to destroy you. You cannot destroy a league. So, when they are wrong, just correct them,” Sexwale said in Tsolo in the Eastern Cape at the weekend, according to the Daily Dispatch.

“This young man called Malema sometimes does things and speaks a lot. He sometimes lands himself in trouble. Thereafter [he] cries to us to retrieve him from the trouble he puts himself in... We should not destroy him [Malema]... Please don’t throw them away, they are too young.”

Sexwale said that Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, a former ANC Youth League president, had grown in stature in the past five years.


"You can now see where Mbaks [Mbalula] is going. Yet it was not long ago, just five years ago - wow, Jola [Mbalula’s clan name] was spitting fire. Each time he spoke, we had to douse the fire and fix him and take him to task, but we never destroyed him.

"Look at him now. He made many mistakes as a youth. What would have happened had we destroyed him? We make a mistake and people say ‘let us destroy the individual’. No, no! It is not the way it should be," Sexwale reportedly told a crowd at a heritage celebration.

Sexwale was expected to testify in Malema's defence at his disciplinary hearing, where he faces charges of bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing division within party ranks.

Malema said the ANCYL would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change. Charged with him are ANCYL spokesman Floyd Shivambu, deputy president Ronald Lamola, treasurer general Pule Mabe, secretary general Sindiso Magaqa and deputy secretary general Kenetswe Mosenogi.

The hearing is expected to resume on October 15.

    Get rid of him

      KayGEEEEE - 2011-10-11 08:40

      Getting rid of Malema wont solve your fears of him, another Malema will come up. Bu what we need is a solution that will take our country forward for all races. The gap between the rich and the poor presents a bigger problem than Malema.

      Time will prove that this upstart, who has abused the gift of attraction that he has been blessed with, is nothing more than a greedy self absorbed individual that is spurred on to even greater folly by those that are using him to foster a climate of dissent amongst the 'leadership' of a now defunct political party. That Lady Justice will again be raped to suit a political agenda is almost a foregone conclusion and is an extremely sad indictment for a potentially great country. It appears that even standing over a dead victim with a smoking gun and with blood spattered all over you is not enough to call you an evil person, that you should be given another chance. We have fast tracked ourselves to chaos and anarchy, all in the name of human rights that are designed for a normal society...which we are patently and unquestionably not!!

      @ Makgowaaraci - your reply is full of assumptions about who South Africans are and what they want. Most South Africans are beginning to see that selling out our resources to China who will NOT invest in local jobs or infrastructure is only going to benefit a handful of the current regime. Our people are not stupid - they've been giving the current regime plenty of time to pull itself together and all they are getting is words and intimidation. It's not good enough for anyone and it shouldn't be good enough for you. SA is worth better leadership than this.

      @Makgowaaraci, do you like mosquitoes? Because that's what you appear to be, a very irritating mosquito. And what do people do with mosquitoes? Do they present their veins so the mosquito can feed, or do they try to kill it? Be careful, you might end up close enough to a mosquito to be seen as a real nuisance, one can only guess what happens next.

Quick to point out the faults of others and accuse them of stupidity when it seems you've been been beaten silly with the stupid stick. Classic. Classically stupid that is.

      heh, i read.. "show malema no mercy"

      Jes Willy - 2011-10-12 08:38

      Not our Juju, we can cause chaos at luthuli House and leave malema alone. Youth league has many malemas and I am also 1 of them is me, The ANC( i.e Zuma and company) will jst need to ban whole youth league.

      Chloe - 2011-10-12 10:28

      I have to wonder what is going on with mr. Sexwale. He's making weird utterances for a guy the country, I supposed, saw as a moderate. He made a fortune from post apartheid SA and now? What's eating Gilbert Grape?

      My Father - 2011-10-12 15:31

      Yes, get rid of him!! Tokyo Sexwal must took money from Fat Boy JUJU.

      @moreso, you and your statistics don't mean a thing to me fact is in South Africa today everyone has a right to vote for Verwoed, De Klerk and Communists, whether it result in a favourable situation for me and you it neither here nor there, actually what are you trying to prove with your statistics?

      Stool - 2011-10-11 15:07

      @mak he is trying to prove that the cANCer F****D up this country

      moreso - 2011-10-11 16:01

      @Makgowaaraci, so then facts are only useful when they further your corrupt agenda? Yea, you have a 'right' to vote for anyone you like. Why do you then CHOOSE to vote for a blatantly criminal and racist organisation whom is bleeding the country dry? The only logical explanation is that you agree with their views, which makes you a racist. I don't blame you, because I don't think you know what you are doing, shame. You said: "whether it result in a favourable situation for me and you it neither here nor there", so it would be safe to assume that you do not put much thought into the outcome, you simply vote along racial lines, like a racist would.

      pitbull - 2011-10-12 05:45

      I think I should write a pantomime for Christmas, call it "The Annoying Naughty corps(e)". The ANC government has all the right characters for it. - the good (Nkosazana Clarice Dlamini-Zuma (debatable)) the bad (Winnie or take your pick) and the downright ugly (take your pick). Peter-Dirk Uys said it years ago, he couldn't imagine this stuff. the government gives him all the material he need."

  • Gavin Mannion - 2011-10-11 08:36

    Loving how the Malema hearing is showing us who is and isn't an idiot in government... At least I know which side to drop Tokyo on now. While he may have a point Malema is really hurting this country and should be stopped

      Pencilgraffiti - 2011-10-11 09:12

      This is scary... i always assumed Tokyo was a relatively intelligent person. I understand and agree with the idea of what he is saying but fact is Julius Malema is not "young". He is my age and when i make mistakes i pay for them. That is one of life's fundamental lessons. Also he holds influence. You can't have that kind of influence and then assume no responsibility. I think Afrika needs to relook at the "African way" of not holding people responsible... Same thing as what Zuma said about Gaddafi and what Thabo said about Mugabe. It can't run it's course, action needs to be taken because lives are at stake

      zelda britz - 2011-10-11 09:30

      Remember the disprin adverts from some years ago where the dog is barking. A person desloves the disprin in wanter and the dog desolves aswell? Wouldnt it be nice if the same could happen to that thing. Oh and a few others aswell

      makenzo99 - 2011-10-11 09:45

      @Pencilgraffiti - NO NO NO! Tokyo has never been intelligent. I don't know why most people are of that opinion though.It could be that because he married a white woman so he must be intelligent, since in South Africa there is a perception that whites hold a monopoly on intellect.

      Mikus - 2011-10-11 09:45

      At least Sex-Wally is a consistent knob - he has just reconfirmed that his sole purpose in life is to be an ever better opportunist. Wow, the ANC wheels are really scared of the Melenoma contagion!

      No No No Makenzo that perception is all wrong. Judy just proves that when you go Black you never go back. Ask Heidi Klum. And on the issue of intelligence, it appears you have the stupidity market cornered. Now that's a monopoly no one wants. And it's not the board game I'm talking about.

      In SA law you are deemed to be legally competent from the age of 14, or is this also only applicable to whites, Tokyo. Has the past also affected the the moral, legal and social competency of a certain sector of the SA citizens. The way Tokyo talks about Juju is the way a person would talk about a weak minded family member. Perhaps this is exactly what Malema is.

      Sagebrush - 2011-10-12 10:28

      Because Sexwale needs Malema as he is going to run for the Presidency.

  • crocoros - 2011-10-11 08:36

    Does the idiot show mercy for singing songs which contain ugly lyrics, does he have mercy when he uses money that is not his own, does he show mercy when he insults and degrade senior members of the ANC. I say crucify him, we don't need leaders like him who causes chaos in an already troubled ANC camp.

  • LarchStrober - 2011-10-11 08:37

    Only a person that cannot understand the damage Malema has done would ask mercy on his behalf, or maybe it is a clever way to prevent alienation of Malema followers...

      DW - 2011-10-11 13:17

      Agreed, Larch. And if Tokyo lacks that level of understanding, we definitely dont need him for our future president (if that is what he is pursuing).

      makenzo99 - 2011-10-11 16:51

      @DW - What makes you think that Tokyo is Pres. material? What qualifications does he have(honouraries don't count)? why do you think he is better that Zuma or Malema?

  • letsee - 2011-10-11 08:37

      WCD - 2011-10-11 10:00

      Tokyo wont run for the presidency, because he has to declare all his ventures and business involvements, and as we all know the president only earns 2.5 million a year (yeah right), which is peanuts for a crime mogul like Sexwale. He is to happy instigating hatred and dismay in South Africa

      Leoster - 2011-10-11 10:19

      I remember not so long ago, our first TV personality politician was running for president hoping to be the compromise between President Mbeki and Jacob Zuma. The next day reality dawned on him and he was dancing by Jacob's side. I admire his skill for political survival. I want him to be my mentor. If you can't be president, be friends with him.

      Makgowaaraci - all I can truly tell you is that racism is not a sustainable policy - history will tell you that. Therefore your apparent hatred of whites is the beginning of your downfall. You can change it any time you like - just stand in front of the mirror and tell yourself: I am only human, white people are only human - we all laugh, cry, bleed the same. Practise - believe me when I tell you that it will save your mind and save your life. There is no future or happiness in racism - you think that it will bring you riches, but riches without humanity is just pointless.

    That is the problem. He persists in blatantly doing the incorrect thing. 3 strikes and you're out, and Malema has well exceeded that quota. He is not young, at 30 years old he should be more than settled into the role of adulthood, with which comes the responsibility of action and speech. Continuing to 'fix him' is a lost cause which promotes the idea that incompetence and mediocrity can be tolerated! And that is, amongst other things, what has catalyzed the status quo (No, not Apartheid...get over it!)

    A 30 year old young man...haaikhona...he is not 03 years old. If you go around correcting 30 year old men, who is going to run around correcting their +/-4 years old babies?

    This once great country is being destroyed by a bunch of clowns, who not even 400 years ago, did not have a written language, the wheel, maths or science, need i say anymore?

      Nor subjected to racism. If I recall a famous Frenchman (White as they come) by the name of Rossouw was not very flattering about "civilisation". Too true, if you are a product.

    He is NOT young! 30 is an adult and not even a young adult. As soon as you are old enough to make illegitimate child(ren), drink, vote, drive and wreck a are no longer young. What has he got on you Tokyo?

  • Dayat Atime - 2011-10-11 09:05

    He isn't so young anymore and as you so eloquently put it "When you are young you go wrong - we fix you and you go wrong again and we fix you..." and "Thereafter [he] cries to us to retrieve him from the trouble he puts himself in...". If you are not learning from your mistakes and sorting out your own problems from the age of 25 then you you should not expect much sympathy. Shows you that money and power mean nothing with a lack of upbringing and education. Cut him off

      And how is it that a so called young man who needs constant correcting is a leader? Makes one wonder how much correcting the followers need.

    Say that in front of the family of the murdered farmers, twat!
