Winnie praises Julius Malema

2012-07-19 10:10

Johannesburg - Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has praised expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema for his effort to bring about economic freedom, the Sowetan reported on Thursday.

The ex-wife of Nelson Mandela told Malema in Nqgeleni in the Eastern Cape that his efforts to economically liberate the country had been noticed.

She was accompanied by Malema, suspended ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu, the league's suspended secretary general Sandiso Magaqa, as well as her daughter Zinzdi.

They were at the official opening of a block of rooms at the Mzontsha Child Care Centre, as part of celebrating former president Nelson Mandela's birthday. The home was donated by the Mandela family.

Madikizela-Mandela referred to Malema as her grandson.

"Thank you very much for making us see in our lifetime that it is possible to liberate our people economically and better their lives.

"Thank you very much for leading that campaign because it is as a result of your emphasis, the youth league's emphasis on the role we should be playing as freedom fighters."

She said the country was in deep trouble as promises were made and not fulfilled.

"The children [here] are lucky we made promises and promises have been kept. We see our people today in the streets demonstrating against us... it is one of the most painful things to observe that 18 years down the line we still have people who say we have failed them."

The family later join Mandela for his birthday lunch at his home in Qunu. The Sowetan could not establish if Malema joined the family.

      Toxic birds of a feather. Wonder if any of Stompie's family were there listening to this convicted criminal speaking?

      Come on News24, stop calling him "expelled ANC Youth League President", we know who and what he is: Julius Malema, or Juliaaaas will do. I've got a few other names for him as well if you're interested, but I have to warn you, it gets a bit rude after this.

      George - 2012-07-19 11:13

      I like the way people go on and on about what she did in the past, how ANC killed people. And make it seem like our previous gov is holly and it never killed any one. Hypocrisy at best. Bason, Botha and everyone else must be forgiven except the Winnie and the ANC members who were fighting back, interesting indeed... I have lots of respect for you Mama-Winnie, AWB, Boeremag and every other hypocrite can never erase what you did for SA and its people, respect

      George - 2012-07-19 11:31

      Every time I read News 24 comments, I realize how important it is that Black people Unite. We can have our little fights internally, maybe at Mangaung. But when we go to the election we must just all vote ANC period. Even if they are useless it doesn't matter... ANC must stay in Parliament until they get it right. Our history books shows it is not only Stompie who was killed in our fight for liberation. There is a lot of people who died and it is really unfair to only look at the one's that were killed by the ANC. She may have killed 1 but how many did the whites kill and if you compare the figures u realize that complaining about Winnie is pathetic. @Paul, how much did Boeremag, AWB, AfriForum,Afrkaneer bond and all this other racist parties pay you?

      lerato.kay.3 - 2012-07-19 11:58

      In as much as I at times disagree with Winnie I am with her 200% on this one, political freedom is useless with economic emancipation. SA will never be stable until ownership of capital represents our true demographics. We can’t have a situation where the minority owns 80% of the wealth and the majority scrambling for the remainder. I am tired of the lame excuse that whites are rich because they are smart, educated and natural managers. How can all whites be smart? Why are there no white taxi drivers, cleaners, street sweepers, labourers, maids, security guards? If SA is fair and equality prevails to all citizens we must see 10% whites in these professions. Payscales according to race still exists; most managers are occupying their positions with matric certificates (if they have any) just because they are the right race. If SA was a truly fair society we wouldn’t need affirmative action as the market will have cleared itself but for now the government must draft laws that outlaw the promotion of apartheid legacy where one race is controlling everything including the political arena! Look at how Afriforum and DA are running the country via courts only to protect their own, I am sure if gang wars were in Camps Bay or Constantia DA could have already approach the courts to force Zuma to unleash the army.

      sean.bagley.50 - 2012-07-19 12:00

      Both Winnie and fat a**se Malema have s**t for brains.Still using the divide and conquer "our people" rhetoric instead of focussing on all of South Africans that wants to make our lives better than it currently is.Why only is it your people that's always worse off than any other South African?For once can you be kind enough,Winnie,and include South Africans as a whole nation and just the toi-toi numbnuts you see on these pages?

      edward.patterson.923 - 2012-07-19 13:29

      @all; Am almost convinced that I will change retirement plans. Was going to spend 4 months in SA. But over the past years of reading the comments here, both white and black I greatly fear SA will implode. The level of hatred is appalling, both white to black and black to white. On another note; Julius Malema's policies of nationalization will destroy the nation, this from an outsider. 1. If as the black SAans are saying on this site that the whites have all this wealth, it's ALREADY LEAVING SA. I meet more and more white SAans in the US. Most have great skills and education. Who will they be replaced with. 2. DIVISION of wealth doesn't equate to CREATION wealth. Last time I checked there were 45 million black SAans and 4 million white SAans. Do the maths there isn't enough right now to go around, create MORE. This doesn't count the 4 million Zims. who have come to SA because the country has collapsed, and oh yes it got there how? By a policy of nationalization. 3. To all the WHITES who are hating on this site, why attack Winnie's character why not point out the lunacy of her ideas. 4. To all who think nationalization will work. I promise you, the very wealthy whites already have a PLAN B. They have large portions of their wealth either out of the country or ready to go. And when it goes they go and with them many jobs. 5. Nationalization will also scare away foreign investment except for Chinese investment continued

      edward.patterson.923 - 2012-07-19 13:40

      Continued: And if you think they are coming to Africa out of the goodness of their hearts you've got another thing coming. Just look at how they treat their own people, how do you think they will treat SAans? 6. Your hatred (all of you, white and black ) that is expressed on this site will have some unintended consequences. One will be slowly eroding of the tourist industry. The crime in SA is a big enough deterrent and if you ad in the open hostility I read on this site it won't be long that SA isn't a prime tourist spot. Remember the west fought it's own battle with race decades ago and they don't want to come to a place where it's happening now. The cities where the riots occurred in the 60's civil rights movement weren't great tourist destinations. 7. A little math. When I visit SA I pay over R3400 in taxes just on the flight. When I'm in SA I spend tens of thousands of rand on hotels, car hire, meals, VAT ect. ect. This is all OUTSIDE MONEY. 8. Are there really so many internal jobs (not foreign or tourist related) jobs held by the white man that your nation can risk driving away foreign investment and tourist with the anger and hatred I see so evidenced here. My plans were...not sure anymore, was to spend 4 months a year with my SAan wife in SA in retirement. Your hate filled comments on this site have made me seriously doubt whether SA will be able to avoid being just another African nation. You know the kind, where rich Americans go (Angelina Joli

      edward.patterson.923 - 2012-07-19 13:44

      continued: Angelina Joli go to adopt kids, or Roger Federer goes to start schools, or western powers throw a couple of million euro's, pounds, dollars to alleviate some crisis. Mandela had it right Malema and all like him have it wrong. But if getting your "pound of flesh" is worth destroying something that was supported by the whole world HAVE AT IT. There are lots of places in the world that I could spend those 4 months. But what a climate.

      George - 2012-07-19 14:18

      @Edward, Change your retirement plan so that you can leave 2morow. SA needs patriotism at this point in time. And the song Mr Foreign inverstor may leave any time from today... yeeah they have been singing that song since the sixties. And if we gonna spend our whole lives living under thread that Mr Foreign is leaving then we f**ked. Every 1st world country had to make drastic changes to change their situation. We should be able to implement policies that benefit South Africans the most without this foreign investor thread. So if foreign investors are here to make sure that we live in fear forever, them I am sorry. So like I say, all those who are planning and thinking of jumping ship please do so and stop threatening us. Since 1994 I have been hearing this I am going to Australia song. Maybe SA is not perfect, but throw this mess and people voicing their opinions and pulling left and right I am certain that we will be able to identify our problems and best solutions. So please, please stop with threats and just leave. Because it is poinless if you claim that you know how to solve SA problem, but you just don't wanna take part in solving them. Nobody is stopping everybody else from joining ANC or DA and actually implementing the positive changes that you talk about. Trevor Manuel is a ANC member and a lot of other white guys. So SA is not black against white. Sad but true ANC allows every one to voice their opinion. "MALEMA's OPINIONS are exactly that HIS"

      George - 2012-07-19 14:24

      Whether you like his opinions or not that's another story. But you can also join the ANC and push your own agendas, no body is stopping you. Thanks for Changing you retirement plan, please leave sooner. But this AWB members going on and on about Winnie is really irritating now, and it has to stop

      edward.patterson.923 - 2012-07-19 14:36

      @georgedinta; Perhaps you didn't notice, I'm an outsider, was thinking of COMING to SA not leaving it. Yes foreign investment isn't the be-all-to-end-all, but to consider policies that take no consideration of their effect on that investment would be foolish. Also I didn't say that the investment would go away I speculated that it would change to chinese investment and their record on caring for both the native people and the environment is abysmal. But again am not a SAan. However, with regards to tourism, did you know that New York city's economy is over 10% tourism and this is the financial capital of the world, nothing to sneeze at. My concern stated here is about the hatred that seems to dominate this site. Mr. Mandela's birthday was yesterday and here in the west (unless we were completely deluded) his vision for SA was very different than what seems to be posted on this site, both white and black.

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-07-19 14:38

      @ Edward: “why attack Winnie's character why not point out the lunacy of her ideas” – If you were in any way familiar with her ‘character’ you would understand. The “lunacy of her ideas” stems from her volatile and evil nature. “Your hate filled comments on this site have made me seriously doubt whether SA will be able to avoid being just another African nation” – It is a given I’m afraid that through the greed and corruption of the ANC, SA will become another failed African country. I trust this removes the doubt factor.

      george.dinta - 2012-07-19 15:00

      @Edward, since your not in SA, and you probably not even contributing towards the growth of SA, I don't see how can you have an opinion on what we should and shouldn't do. You sound like a person who doesn't wanna contribute towards booze that we are planning to buy. But once we contributed u wanna tell us which booze to but what do you prefer really now. Focus on the Euro-zone crisis. U have problems of your own focus on them and stop this moral yard stick business. New York is better fine, and we are happy for them. @BigChiefPlumbPudding, we are another African country, get map or something + a little bit of education. And stop looking down at our brothers and sistas. We are all Africans. We get u win, Europe is better + Holly whateva. And to all South Africans on this page: Here is you home work for Today suckers: If you hate Winnie or the ANC. Write down all your reason and read them out loud and ask yourself if you being reason. Winnie was being attacked harassed and her family torn apart. Did she had a right to be angry and react? And if you still have that apartheid mentality that native don't have feeling then there is no way we can help you. We will just pray that you die sooner so that we are only left with people who are willing to take SA forward. People have been forgiven for the roles that they took in apartheid and the fight against apartheid and Winnie deserves the same. And if you hate the ANC and believe something has to change ANC membership is R12.00

      edward.patterson.923 - 2012-07-19 16:15

      @george.dinta; As I said before I'm married to a SAan and thinking of moving to SA for part of the year, but from your comments I don't think that I would you would make me feel very welcome. Sad because it's a beautiful country with fantastic climate. Always admired Mandela and his vision.

      George - 2012-07-19 16:55

      @Edward, cool. But we are done selling out our people to please foreigners. The only way forward is to do what's best for South Africans. Even Americans do what's best for American's we are the only ones who are forced to do what's best for everyone except our people... naah... we nid change. Wrong or right, we need to try this things and take a little bit of risk here and there (and we should be able to talk about this things without bein made feel like your being racist).

      @Edward Thank you for sharing your opinion your comment was refreshing and insightful I just wish all these morons could actually understand the point that you are trying to get across. You hit the nail on the head and what you said pretty much sums up the current situation in SA. It is clear to a foreigner just a shame Safricans can not see it. I am a 23 year old Safrican. Ive been living abroad for the past 4years not a day goes by where I do not miss my country but I just cant persuade myself to go back because of fools like Mallema and Winnie. SA has so so much potential I mean we could be a world superpower but because of an incompetent government greed corruption and racism from both sides SA will turn into just another failed african country, and it wont take long either at the rate things are going now.

      edward.patterson.923 - 2012-07-20 13:46

      @george.dinta" Yes SA should be for all SAans and yes many are still in poverty. But ask yourself one question; "will the things that Malema work?" You say that "we have to try these things," why, if they won't work? In my first comment yesterday that's what I was trying to say. The history of not just Africa but the world says that Nationalization won't work. The closest it has come to working is Saudi Arabia. But in that country there is still great poverty among a large % of the population, the difference is that they throw massive amounts of government money at the poor to keep them content. But in every other example I can think of nationalization has been a disaster. Oh, maybe not in year one or two but certainly in the long term. My "selfish" goal for SA is that it would be a successful country in the long term. It's selfish because I would like to come and live there in the future. You say that you shouldn't sell out your people to keep foreigners happy. Remember when I come, even for a visit, I do it with money that never was in SA. It was earned in another country, saved in another country, grew in value in another country. Now I come and spend it in SA and I help create jobs. No, I think it would be good for SA keep foreigners happy and how is this "selling out your people?"

      @tumisang - I applaud you for making a success, unfortunately you are still percentage wise a minority between your people. Emancipation is a term used when talking about things like gender equality, not economics. To have economic power a larger proportion of the population needs skills and education. I will repost a reply on a different article below this comment.

      louwc - 2012-07-19 11:03

      1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealth out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take away from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them: and when the other half gets the idea that is does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation. (Not my own 5 points, but very valid) So we agree there is inequality, most visibly, economical. Less visible, but much more important are skills and education. Unfortunate as the situation might be for the Previously Disadvantaged (PD), transfer of the economic power, without first correcting skills and education, will destroy the very economic power you are so hungry for. Yes the PD’s will have fun for a year or two, then the money will be spent and point 5 above will come to play with all in South Africa. This is exactly what happened in Zimbabwe when Economic and Political power was handed over at the same time. And remember, the poor uneducated masses becomes like riding on the back of a hungry tiger, one that Mugabe has become very afraid of falling off from!

      You're right. I wouldn't know what it is like for someone else to do my work for me. I don't have the mentality of I want, want, want or I'll take, take, take - whether or not it belongs to me! I actually worked and studied for what I wanted and therefore I can write, grammartise and spell for myself. I don't need anyone else to do it for me.

      silvia.vaneck2 - 2012-07-20 01:38

      Tumisang, Well guess what?? You have proven to everyone that you are already economically free! Maybe Malema should try his hand at growing the economy so that more people can have a slice of the pie. Or maybe he should just start farming and leave economic things up to those that understand how the economy ticks!!

      robin.mcdee.73 - 2012-07-20 06:45

      @Tumisang - you don't have a clue what you are talking about. You don't know the difference between redistributing existing wealth and creating new wealth. If you want to earn the type of money that the CEO of Shoprite earns - you are free to start your own "Shoprite" and if the worker that earns R3000 a month is not content with his salary he is free to start his own business and earn double or tripple that amount. Don't try and camouflage your own incompetence behind lofty ideals of equality for all. Don't become dependant on fish handouts - rather learn how to catch fish yourself !!!

      rob.bayliss.94 - 2012-07-19 10:58

      pdby: But what is economic freedom? You are correct, conceptually I do not grasp the concept. Maybe my problem is having lived in a period that determines your economic status by checking your potential value and contribution. Based on that Mr Bank Manager may give me a loan....but it is not a gift, it has to be paid back. What then are you advocating? Unsecured loans to people that are unlikely to be able to repay. Jobs and wages based on social determinants rather that capability and value to the economy? It is dead easy to focus on the massive differences between ordinary workers and some high flyers in both commerce and government. Most people are not in that category and struggle to maintain what the developed world would consider tolerable life-styles. So, cap the big earners, including government....but what else?

  • williamthemba.matlala - 2012-07-19 10:41

    I cant believe the statement....WHAT HAS COME OF WINNIE MANDELA-.HAS SHE GONE CRAZY. Show me one effort or ECONOMIC plan that has ever been produced by the ANCYL or articulated by MALEMA...Nationalisation rhetoric is not a plan...What has National Youth Empowerment done to help our youth accept providing girlfriends and close buddies with loans on non existing projects. What has ANCYL done to address the issues of pregnancy among the youth....I mean concret and tangible solution not rhetoric. What has ANCYL done to address the unemployable youth, helping with old age homes, advising school leavers on correct courses to take especially artisan training, fighting poverty by advising on self sufficiency.....ALL OF THE ABOVE THE ANSWER IS NO. However economic empowerment by MALEMA Standard means looting tenders in Limpopo, driving, dining on expensive cars and wine.....LASTLY WINNIE HOW DID MALEMA MANAGE TO HAVE 53 MILLION RANDS WITHIN 3 YEARS WITHOUT SWEATING A DROP OR RUNNING BUSINESS

      Fedix - 2012-07-20 06:55

      Winnie is right although she just used a person who does not practice what he preaches. Julius Malema is telling the truth but for very selfish reasons. The government must empower people through education and not tenders. They must encourage small businesses by providing a platform where blacks can learn to run businesses and help them with funding and support. I can tell you over 90% of those who want Malema back in the ANC are thinking about getting tenders from the government.

  • robin.mcdee.73 - 2012-07-19 10:44

    winnie and Malema - obviously you can't distinguish between redistribution of wealth and creating wealth - or - giving your people a fish to eat and teaching them how to catch fish ! Maybe it is because you have never acquired the skill yourselves and you and the top brass of the ANC have inherited a huge deepfreeze full of fish anyway !!!

SA politics are very tricky...we are being exploited from all directions whites and blacks r exploiting the poor.

      Such a Man would be Johann Rupert, who with the assistance of his father Dr. Anton Rupert had built various organisations with which to preserve many objects for future citizens of this World, other than their commercial entities, too many to mention which many are not even aware of, however he will be a man seem to be fair in all spheres of and in dealings but don't expect the current scenario of BEE etc. which is quite the opposite of what the ANC said they have fought for, we are not a democratic country, but racist yes, since the ANC had tipped the scale instead of creating a balance and in having kept the whites in their positions that they were in due to years of effort, unfortunately they shot themselves in the foot by ridding organisations and the government of professional knowledgeable intelligent educated employees hard to come by as an individual is built in years not just a day. The ANC is rather weak and took the easy way out, they just didn't have the Balls to accept the past and also changed our History such as street names etc. which we had fought for and built up over decades! If you, ANC, have Balls, you should come to the Party and align your strategy, because the Crystal Ball has for some or other reason shown us a different picture you might not want to see!

      edward.patterson.923 - 2012-07-19 16:13

      @previouslydisadvantaged; But will the policies of Mr. Malema equate with economic freedom. Show me one place in the world where nationalization has benefited the nation (and yes the poor) for the long term. It may give a short term boast to the poor but what if it destroys the economy like in places like Zim. where 4 million of their poor are in SA because there are no jobs. Yes, economic freedom for all. But are you sure that what Mr. Malema proposes will work?

      kobus.oosthuizen.58 - 2012-07-19 16:29

      no one that i know opposes economic freedom for all, but the way juliarse wants to do it will only lead to greater poverty in the long term. you cant make the masses rich by taking away from those that have created wealth for themselves - there simply isn't enough wealth to divide amongst the people. the only way people will be economically free is if they are educated and use their education to get wealthy. let me explain this to you in a way that you might understand: how do you feed a bunch of people? do you take away a bowl of pap from one person and divide it between the rest, or do you make a big pot full of pap that is enough to feed everyone? taking away the one bowl of pap is much easier than making a big pot full, but it is a short term solution that wont leave anyone better off.
