Shoot the boer changed to shoot Zuma at Malema vigil

2012-09-25 20:49

Polokwane - Supporters attending a night vigil for Julius Malema, who is to appear in a Polokwane court on charges of fraud and money laundering, have changed the lyrics of the controversial shoot the boer to shoot Zuma, according to several twitter posts.

The embattled former ANC Youth League leader will on Wednesday be charged with alleged money laundering totalling R4.58m.

By 20:00 only a small group of young people, some wearing ANC regalia, had begun arriving at the Nirvana community hall.

Limpopo African National Congress Youth League spokesperson Klaas Mabunda earlier had told reporters that 15 000 people were expected to attend the vigil.

Ten buses were expected from each sub-region in the province.

Mabunda said the supporters would sing and dance until daybreak and would proceed from the hall to the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday morning.

Later on Tuesday night, when supporters had arrived in substantial numbers, Malema would be called to address them, he said.

Yusuf Omar of eNCA tweeted that Malema was expected at 22:00.

On Wednesday at 08:15 Malema would hand himself over to police before his court appearance, Mabunda added.

Mabunda said Malema was expected to make speeches both before and after appearing on charges related to his Ratanang Family Trust.

Security around the Polokwane Magistrate's Court was beefed up on Tuesday and several roads are to be closed.

"Tight control will be enforced by members of the private security company at the court, as well as members of the SAPS,"  police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said in a statement.

"No lawlessness will be tolerated and those who break the law will be arrested immediately," he said, adding that dangerous weapons like firearms, knives, pangas and sticks were banned.

Mulaudzi said police were expecting "throngs and throngs of people".

    Hate speech.

      christelle.james.7 - 2012-09-25 21:04

      Ben I agree. This is not acceptable! And honestly, it is not funny anymore either. We cannot tolerate any of this type of speech any more!

      Xavier7034 - 2012-09-25 22:30

      Many people, including myself, do not support either Malema's or Zuma's views - but what Malema is slowly but surely doing, is to subtly, and always slyly, undermine our PRIDE in being South Africans. We all need to stand up to what these scumbags are doing - otherwise, what WILL we have left? Zuma, Malema and the whole coterie of ANC cohorts are making this country BLEED....both emotionally and financially. Soon.....what will have left? Even the African Vulture will not be able to pick the flesh from our scarified souls.

      ian.dejongh.562 - 2012-09-26 08:07

      Please dont spill a drink on president Zuma because you will likely end up in jail, but singing and chanting to "SHOOT" the president of South Africa is OK? Is it just me or is there something wrong with this picture? I think it is much more than hate speach. You can not threaten to "KILL" the president of a country!!!!

  • charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-09-25 20:56

    BAWAHAHAHA, shoot Zuma. Zuma the boer. This is beautiful! Where are the Marikana cops when we need them?

      Cameron - 2012-09-25 21:42

      What are you talking about dmcze? You do know what story you commenting right? hahahaha

      crracker.crackerr - 2012-09-25 22:16

      @ Charles Dumbwin I was hoping that I would never have to say this but I think it is opportune and only fair to state it now. I will of course post the link to this page in future all over News24. You asked for it. Your absolute two-facedness forces you to. I don't like Julius Malema at all. But being a non-believer it is not a big issue. I don't have to pretend I am in some higher spiritual bracket than others. I do not claim some spirit infusion or spiritual motivation. I also do not rely on such in attempts to validate the source material for my belief system. No lovey dovey claims from my or other unbelievers. No claims of some love-filled hearts because god or his word works inside us. Just plain honesty. But you claim some spiritual speciality/insight/experience? Why do you hate Julius Malema? The bible is supposed to advise you to follow a different set of principles than your comments here and on some other threads continue to highlight. Be assured that your comment here will with my comment here be reproduced quite often on this forum in the near future. As I said, I don't hold respect or love for Malema but I don't have to pretend. You on the other hand MUST pretend otherwise because of your claimed spirituality. Or why waste your time and energy on your belief system? Or are you wasting your time trying to promote that which you clearly do not possess but insist the rest of us should have?

      Yup - the lowest common denominator - trouble is they just don't get it.

  • raymond.buis.3 - 2012-09-25 20:58

      Well said! The sooner all those who shout "viva Malema" realise that Malema is a corrupts capitalist who cares for the poor except to enrich himself, the better off the country would be.

  • numerofigo - 2012-09-26 01:07

    Lol they tend to like them at an early stage, but it resolves after they see their true colours... 4rm Friend 2 Foe...

  • raymonddube - 2012-09-26 01:47

    what do yu col this now

  • lynne.barker.7 - 2012-09-26 05:32

    These people turn on people they once supported at the drop of a hat regardless whether the new person they are supporting is an idiot or not? Difficult to understand how their minds work?

  • Vickela Mumby - 2012-09-26 05:35

    Juju power!

  • douglas.reid.921 - 2012-09-26 06:00

    Try this in Zim, you will get arrested, beaten, etc etc. Zuma is going to bite, its a matter of when and how hard. Seems like some people need to learn some lessons the hard way, starting with respect.....

  • bheki.ndlovu.5055 - 2012-09-26 06:24

    Now mr malema is telling his supporters to sing the \shoot zuma\ not the \boer\? Mr malema faces cherges of corruption at same time. He went to marikana knowing that fraud charges had been laid against him, he is fooling the people so that they think he is charged after marikana. No he is wrong

  • gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-09-26 06:27

    I like the thought.

  • steven.m.armour - 2012-09-26 06:30

    Welcome to the zoo

  • dejagers - 2012-09-26 06:37

    I suggest a 'murder - suicide' by either Malema or Zuma.

  • zaks2217 - 2012-09-26 07:00

    I'm just interested to know the findings of this investigation. If this is true, which is very possible, then it puts a hole in everything he preaches and will legally expose him as a con artist who is doing this for the power and money.

  • trevor.bush.9655 - 2012-09-26 07:10

    How QUICK they turn on their leaders, just goes to show, in South Africa, stability is no longer possible and we just like any other African State, just a matter of time.

  • ken.koen - 2012-09-26 07:21

    All the worlds a circus, and Africa provides the clowns. The sad reality though, is that stupid people dont know they're stupid

    Give this idiot enough rope ...

  • simon.mwando - 2012-09-26 07:44

    Someone is calling for president to be shot! Lay treason charges also.

  • DrGonzoSA - 2012-09-26 07:59

    Nothing better to do

  • gloria.mathebula.9 - 2012-09-26 08:15

    We are not scared the economic freedom fighters will conquer, Viva Economic Freedom Fighters Viva!!!

      LanfearM - 2012-09-26 10:37

      Oh gloria.mathebula, you are SO ignorant! No economic freedom [whatever that is according to you] has EVER been won with a war. Any armed conflicts in this country, including the terrible murder/crime figures, are just impacting the economy and making things worse. For everyone.

  • darryl.maze1 - 2012-09-26 08:56

    Just put Julius with all his brainless ANCYL on one side and Zuma with all his brainless ANC members on the other side and let them have a good old fashion shoot out.

  • ricki.sorrell - 2012-09-26 09:13

    Judging by the articles image, the ANCYL supporters all seem to have the palsy.

  • - 2012-09-26 09:16

    Can the Youth LEague make up their minds on whether they will fight and die FOR Zuma, or not please?! Also, Malema is by all accounts a private citizen now, why the hoo haa on his court case now and the night vigil (that wont change the facts in the case anyway) . . . Beter idea, can someone get these protestors some jobs to keep them busy and out of trouble ?

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-09-26 09:41

    Well maybe the poor farmers will get a break for now.

  • marileigh.pienaar - 2012-09-26 11:40

    It's a pity that one little joke of a so-called politician can change the "proudly South African" slogan into "sadly South African". Maybe Malema believes that there's no such thing as bad publicity, but unfortunately he had to make South Africa the laughing stock of the world. Can't we make him an outcast of some sort - he is dragging our country's name through the mud!

  • Cuteandbronzed - 2012-09-27 06:28

    I hate Nelson Madela all this is is on his head, he knows he sold us out!. His liar and were getting ready to fight!

  • george.outremer - 2012-09-27 09:21

    The surprising thing about all of this is that Zuma continues to hide behind the ANC apron (sic). He should exercise leadership by stepping forward and making public statements that this behaviour is unacceptable; will not be tolerated; and will be subject to legal action. It is this lack of leadership that will ensure he is not re-elected.

  • siyabonga.dlamini.5494 - 2012-11-01 14:35

    I dream of a south africa with objective and princpled youth. If there are alligation against a person, wat is the idea behind gathering and wasting energy all the day and night. Is that gonna charge the validity of the alligation or what. Is it correct to get public funds in an indirect way for your personal gains to satisfy your personal needs. I wish our youth can understand that going to school, studying and hard work will open them opportunities not supporting people who are thought to have done things wrongly. Let the law take its cause. One desires more to know where this country is going to with the kind od youth mentality that prevails today. Let us not struggle when there si no need for struggle. Let us not use popularity and moab mentality to justfy what is not right.
