Mkhize and Mbete attack Malema

By Sapa | Apr 02, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 39 ]

KwaZulu-Natal ANC chairman Zweli Mkhize launched a scathing attack on unruly youth in the party, calling for an end to the use of derogatory language directed at the ANC and its leadership.

Mkhize was addressing a rally at Osizweni outside Newcastle in northern KZN for the arrival of the centenary torch in the province on Sunday.

His comments came two days after Malema criticised ANC president Jacob Zuma of dictatorship during a lecture at Wits University on Friday.

Mkhize told supporters that while the party accepted diverse views, the use of foul language and an attack on the party was unacceptable and would not be tolerated.  

He also warned about the party running out of patience over bad behaviour.

“We hope that people can behave themselves before it gets to a point where the ANC gets fed up with unruly behaviour,” said Mkhize.

“The ANC has enough might to expel anyone who displays unacceptable behaviour inside the party.”

He emphasised that the ruling party was bigger than any individual and had in the past 100 years survived challenges by individuals who failed to follow party discipline.

Party national chairwoman Baleka Mbete echoed Mkhize’s sentiments of a party that needs disciplined young people who will lead the party in the future.

While not mentioning Malema by name, she said the party wouldl eventually run out of patience with unruly individuals.

The arrival of the torch marked the beginning of a host of activities by the ruling party in KwaZulu-Natal and will see the torch circulating around the province.

Among the key activities in April would be a lecture on former party president Josiah Gumede to be delivered by president Zuma in Durban later this month.

So where was all this concern about respect and decency when you were sitting smiling during the attacks on Mbeki?

I too dislike the tone of the current rhetoric but it was the current bunch who encouraged it.

What's surprising is that only Zuma "yes people" are disliking the desrespect Malema is unleashing whereas they too were disrespectful during cde Mbeki's ousting. If discipline is meant for all ANC members, why is Mkhize and the MKVA in KZN not brought before the DC for their pronouncement regarding the ourcome of the ANCYL DC hearing?

All Zuma "yes men" can protect him to a certain point and truth at the end will prevail regarding showerman's dictatorship.

@Nwanawamukalaha...What is it that Zuma did wrong? I think he did very well in his first term. He also has a very good plan for his second term (infrastructure development program).

Will she be buying it like she bought her drivers licence or will she be getting her travelgate travelagent to book it on her behalf?

FYI, the infrastructure development program he mentoined in his speech is the same sector that lost billions countrywide in the name of corruption. What methodology do you think he's gonna implement to make the pronounced plan work?

His speech's 'look and sound good' promises are so at face value and only 35% of each will be achieved. While he enjoys making stupid silly jokes during speeches, the man can't give a directive which will be in the masses' interest and not for his tribal and cronies' interest.

Well, world cup infrastructure was a good test of what this country can achieve. A lot of people also doubted us for world cup preparations. Now, we have some of the most beautiful stadiums and airports in the world. We also completed a Gautrain project, which is now up and running. People must stop thinking emotionally, think with cool heads.

The world cup infrastructure was something FIFA requested to be done while they were monitoring. This was never an idea of ANC or Zuma but that which comes with every soccer world cup event.

How many squatter camps do we have in South Africa? Alexandre is one of the oldest but Zuma and his kul1 friend Pravin decide to budget R5b for something which is not a requirement in e-tolling. With similar flats built and handed-over to Jabavu residents by Tokyo Sexwale @ R28m, how many more were gonna be built with the R5b forced out of us tax payers?

Most developed countries have a plan to enrich themselves by promising leaders from developing countries like South Africa with luxurious deals which will the citizens of those coutries poorer while the leading man and his followers are getting richer.

Yes, but is was a good test of Zuma-led government can do.

Didn't we have squatter camps under Mandela-Mbeki era? Have they just appeared under Zuma leadership? Look government has an RDP program and it will take time for squatter camps to completely removed.

When your child is disrepecting other people older than him in your presence, you do not sit back and watch just because those people have something you desperately need. Tomorrow they will turn around and disrespect you and you can't exactly start telling them it is wrong not to respect older people.Before Polokwane conference, there was a lot of disrespect that happened and the same people who were supposed to say something kept quiet. I hope they find a better way of dealing with this otherwise the damage will be too much.
