Zuma 'blowing hot air' in speech - Malema

2014-06-18 07:08

Cape Town - African National Congress members were clapping for mediocrity during President Jacob Zuma's State of the Nation address in Parliament on Tuesday, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema said.

"There is nothing exciting except a blowing of hot air and a repetition of the things that we have heard before," Malema said after the address in which Zuma said the minister of labour was investigating minimum wages.

"Sometimes [Zuma is] playing the gallery and not really meaning what he is saying."

During his address Zuma spoke about improving the housing and living conditions of miners, but Malema said that was what was written in the mining charter.

Malema said Zuma was "plagiarising" the mining charter.

"And the ANC people clap hands to mediocrity. He is plagiarising the mining charter," he said.

The mining industry, including government, had failed the mining charter, he said.

    Get those overalls dirty julius , don't think you even know how to operate a pick or a shovel

      RabbleRouser - 2014-06-18 07:22

      And look at the shiny boots. It looks just like the ones that the Nazi's wore. He probably got the maid to polish them.

      tess.boltar - 2014-06-18 07:35

      I remember Julius saying that politics is all he knows. He has never been a garden boy etc. don't expect anything resembling work from him.

      Lolo James - 2014-06-18 08:18

      @rabbie. Very close resemblance. The nazis also took advantage of the economic woes of Germans caused by the 1st world war and promised people jobs and food

      Jon Low - 2014-06-18 09:03

      And the Nazis delivered on those promises. (However, they then went a lot further and delivered a whole lot more in things nowhere as benign.)

  • Grizzlybear - 2014-06-18 07:14

    Not "killing for Zuma" anymore, are we Julius?

      Jon Low - 2014-06-18 09:04

      Replace "for" with "of".

      Takie Van der Proes - 2014-06-18 09:04

      Obviously not, I do not understand why we are finding it difficult that Julius could see things the way we do, If there is any hope that the SAcan masses can change their mindset, Julius represents that..but I guess it is more important to remind him of his mistakes the same way we will remind all who used to vote anc how stupid they were. Woody has a point this time, lets focus on that.

      Eric Moneyvalu - 2014-06-18 12:58

      Well said Takie. lets remove the plank from our eyes before we complain about the spec in JujUs eyes. let he without sin cast the first stone.

  • Zahir - 2014-06-18 07:18

    Zooma has no interest in economy or jobs he is there to improve his finances he knows his time is limit and he must grab all big deals

  • jacques.potgieter.313 - 2014-06-18 07:19

    His kit is clean. Get down and dirty and do something productive.

  • Reerie May - 2014-06-18 07:28

    Won't be suprise if this is the biggest play between Zooms and Malema and taking the nation for a ride.No response frm Anc when the toddler Malema slaps JZ and things is going to well wid his corruption charges looks like things is wrking out as planned

  • Oageng Gaofengwe - 2014-06-18 07:28

    malema,are you still wishing for President Zuma to suffer,I believe that you're the one who is suffering?You are the minority and you'll suffer because the ANC will keep clapping hands.Suffer in silence.

  • Tholakele Mngadi - 2014-06-18 07:29

    @Juju you are yet to explain to us how you managed to pay R5500 a month medical aid, how you took your son to a private school where you pay R13000 a month, how you managed to buy a Range Rover Evoque(R650000), how you afforderd to demolish a R4 Million house and where you would have got the R16 million to build a new one. Should I continue? How you afforded to buy a R250000 Rolex watch?

      RabbleRouser - 2014-06-18 07:40

      It is a Breitling, not a Rolex. So that makes it even worse.

      Tholakele Mngadi - 2014-06-18 07:57

      @Rabble thank you for that correction. And all this he acquired whilst he was getting paid R25K a month by the ancyl.

      Thingahangwi Nengovhela - 2014-06-18 07:57

      Tholakele, right on point! My sentiments.

      Naas Du Plessis - 2014-06-18 08:28

      Cause he is a thief just like zuma.

      Jon Low - 2014-06-18 09:05

      He earns R1m a year.

      Revelgen - 2014-06-18 09:12

      True, Tholakele. Hitler did just the same: telling people exactly what they wanted to hear, and promising a 'Thousand Year Reich.' It actually lasted only 6 years. Hopefully, Julius's 'Reich' will be even shorter. He is an absolute conman, right up there with the best of our crooks.

  • tess.boltar - 2014-06-18 07:33

    I remember juli

  • Seale Collen Mothogoane - 2014-06-18 07:33

    If he was still a member of the ANC, he was also going to clap hands for this mediocrity and insult anyone who gives zumas speech a thumbs down.

  • Donovan Dunn - 2014-06-18 07:39

    mmmm...R150 overall to parliament but R5000 suit to talk to miners at Marikana?

      Phetogo Morake - 2014-06-18 08:51

      Relevance? Or is that what last night's speech was about? Come on dude, don't prove your stupidity on this site.

      Jon Low - 2014-06-18 09:07

      He wears political costumes, not clothes. And everyone notices, so it clearly works for him.

      Donovan Dunn - 2014-06-18 10:59

      the relevance you clown, is that he pretends to be one for the people by showing his gob in parliament wearing daft overalls and showing both contempt and disrespect to the institution, but when actually addressing workers, he wears his R5000 suit and R250k watch. FYI the mining charter says nothing about striking for 5 months for unrealistic wages nor does it say the mines must be nationalised. So his tripe is as nonsense as Zuma's is. So congrats, not only have you shown your sutpidity on here, but also your irrelevance to any meaningful contribution

  • richard.browne.9862 - 2014-06-18 07:43

    He's no fool this guy, people listen, you all did? Scary.

      Craig Thom - 2014-06-18 10:29

      He plays to the tune of the lowest denominator and there are many in SA?I agree he is not a fool but the people follow are!

    @Malema we people who voted Eff we salute you brother don't worry about other who are only good on critisizing other instead coming with a solution they will talk till they give up or be tired of talking

      Kedibone Wageng - 2014-06-18 08:30

      u'r leader must go to initiation school to learn more about manhood

      jason.hepple.5 - 2014-06-18 08:52

      He only has solutions for what the EFF wants not the people of SA....

  • James Maswoba - 2014-06-18 07:57

    ANC knows that they have ignored the mining charter. freedom charter. Everything they stood for before 1994. now that EEF is preaching viva mining charter. minimum wages. wealth Redistribution now Zuma is copying. we are fighting we are no longer peaceful

      Jovial Vuysile - 2014-06-18 08:17

      President Zuma still making us loose the hope of he will consider the place of Mr Mdingi at Makhwantini because he talk of Limpompo improvement of education even though is better if is something will happen that point of educational improvement rather than that promise of Makhwantini at Madiba location who where promise to go back after braved of an Icon Mr Mdingi who was suffered during Apatheid era but his family didn't benefit anything of services delivery

      Jovial Vuysile - 2014-06-18 08:31

      The speech of President Jecob Zuma was suitable for those people who benefit but for us as the yought of South Africa more especial at Madiba Location is like DDT that used to kill the Ox liys since we are struggling with everything interms educational improvement, we passed Matric than we go to Sugarcane hunters because we benefit nothing to developement

    O how I miss the days of apartheid. At least then we knew where we stood. Our leaders never got a chance to expose their stupidity in front of the whole world. Zuma must just go back to school, it's never too late to start afresh to earn some wisdom.

      Jabulani Samuel - 2014-06-18 09:35

      @Phetogo Morake: u need to come out of ur narrow mindedness shell and see the light! U miss apartheid? Do u know what it really mean?u would not even be allowed to use the word stupid towards the state president,eugen de kock would have dealt with u very swift!

  • Van Chez - 2014-06-18 08:46

    Everyone knows the ANC is mediocre, we can just stand and look at the rubbish they come up with, from corruption to a screwed economy! we will be a zimbabwe soon enough! being burned by Zuma has really triggered mr malema, sour grapes lol

    True that my boy

  • France Ntuli - 2014-06-18 08:49

    There is no act of plagiarism by the President as erroneously asserted by Julius Malema. What I detected during the State of the Nation Adresss were disrespectful and lunatic gestures by the infante terrible of our modern politics. However, what Malema must take into cognisance is that his streetwise gestures belong to children devoid of proper upbringing and he must not import them into official state functions. The ANC-led government emerged with Broadbased Black Economic Empowerment and all its instruments that include, but not limited to the Mining Charter. What plagiarism is Malema alluding to? This signals that Malema is highly educational and philosophical deficient and bankrupt. When he was president of the ANC Youth League he was clapping hands to the utterances of our President as if there was a clapping hands competition. These are double standards as well as probating and reprobating escapades by Malema. May the Almight bless South Africa and the ANC!

      jason.hepple.5 - 2014-06-18 09:03

      France... Why don't you just say it in plain English?? We all get the general idea of what you're saying, but try simple language... At the very least people with limited English skills would still know what you're saying...!! Don't say things for the sake of 'sounding' intellectual as, that's all the politicians do... Use flowery language to impress others while in reality, saying nothing at all!!

  • Denton Estment - 2014-06-18 08:50

    Hope Julius is going to wash his overalls after every days hard work in parliament. Or will he realise he is earning a fat cat salary as an MP and can return to his Gucci suits etc.

  • Winifred Watson - 2014-06-18 09:32

    I am not a Malema fan but it true what is says. Also Zuma keeps promising the same old same old and hardly anything materializes. The ANC are a an expensive family to keep in power and we all know that leopards never change the spots. The only thing the ANC changes is the words.

  • Joao Duarte - 2014-06-18 09:50

    Rather the devil you know than the one don't. If the EFF toke power the country will be in tatters in a matter of weeks, the fact is the leader of the EFF has zero qualification to base his views and important decisions on, for him this is all a big show. The ANC for all it's faults does have intellectuals behind the scenes driving policy, or at least limiting the damage of irrational ideas becoming policy. There should be some form of education require for an MP, which also means the President would also not qualify to be there.

      Thabang Skulito Gaogopolwe - 2014-06-18 09:59

      mxm you do not need to have a qualification to see that Zuma is lying maaaan.this is almost a replica of the last speech he gave he is just buying face because he knows there are people like you.....Zuma is not educated and what ever the master minds behind the scene decide Zuma is the one with the final say hence he broke many laws and he is still at the helm of the presidency

      Amos Zwiipi - 2014-06-18 10:07

      those qualifications you talk about,lead to corruption.
