Malema takes on Zuma's ANC in Mangaung
EXPELLED ANC Youth League president Julius Malema last night called for ANC members to "disrupt" all gatherings hosted by Free State premier Ace Magashule.
Malema, accompanied by suspended youth league secretary general Sandiso Magaqa and ANCYL provincial leadership was addressing the packed hall in Mangaung under the auspices of the Friends of the Youth League.
". our leaders are destroying the ANC of Nelson Mandela. From now onwards, wherever they [provincial ANC] meet we must go there. They must not get peace until they give us what we want. Where the ANC goes in this province, you must hire buses and organise a nice party for them and tell them in their faces that they are bloody corrupt," he said.
Malema said the youth of Free State must be as "fearless" as the youth of Limpopo who clashed with President Jacob Zuma's supporters in Venda on Tuesday.
"Youth of Limpopo were never intimidated by soldiers, police and vigilantes wearing uMkhonto we Sizwe uniform. We must never be scared of these cowards because they are scared of us."
He said Zuma was afraid of addressing rallies in stadia and was now focusing on addressing controlled crowds in halls because he feared "Julius Malema".
"Who is Zuma to tell us about corruption, if he is not corrupt he must go to court and prove his innocence. He is not a disciplined member as he claims, how do you sleep with children of your friends. I can't sleep with Magaqa's sister, let alone his daughter," he said.
"Zuma has damaged the image of the ANC. Today we are expelled from the ANC for speaking politics. We were never charged with rape and corruption. We were charged for speaking nationalisation, politics, issue of land and that Botswana is a sell-out."
Malema said Zuma sings a song that "our land was taken by the boers from our people" at ANC gatherings.
"I said the same thing about land and was fired because I did not speak it in Zulu. We will never form a political party, we are sitting outside the gates of the ANC waiting to come back. "
Turning on the premier, Malema said it was undemocratic for him to lead for 20 years.
"Magashule has turned this province into his own kitchen, where he decides who he dishes to and not. Only those who come from his home town Parys must benefit, he has turned this province into 'Parys Paradise'. Sixteen members of the provincial executive are from his region. Leadership should represent the geographic spread of the area."
ANC provincial secretary William Bulwane said they were not going to respond to Malema because he was no longer an ANC member.
"His utterances are strange. Magashule did not elect himself, he was elected by the branches of the ANC. Anybody with a problem must go to the branches and start campaigning from there."
