Malema slams Lamola

By Sapa | 2012-11-28 09:03:30.0 | COMMENTS [ 88 ]

Former ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has criticised his successor, Ronald Lamola, calling him a “traitor” and ”sellout”

“He is compromised. He is gone. He has sold out...[With] his sellout tendencies he will never the lead the youth league,” Malema told The Star newspaper.

Malema criticised a statement by Lamola that the youth league would support the outcome of the ANC national elective conference in Mangaung regardless of whether their endorsed candidates won.

“Without being asked a question, he just said we will accept the results even if [Jacob] Zuma wins. Even among the forces of change, Lamola is not anybody to be listened to. He is a traitor, he is not going to carry that mandate to its logical conclusion,” Malema said.

Malema said he was shocked to see Lamola at his court hearings and said he did not need “Lamola in my life”.

“I do not need him. I was never made by Lamola. He does not know where I come from. I don’t need Lamola in my life in the same way I have never needed Lamola in my political career.” 

Lamola declined to comment to the paper, saying he had to "consult with comrades" before offering a response to Malema’s criticisms.

Malema forgets that we fought for democratic right to expression. Why is Malema still wearing ANCYL colours? when he's been disgraced and kicked our of the organisation? This reptile is not fit to run a creche, let alone a YL that is steeped in liberation struggle hisory. Lamola has a right to support who he chooses, especially in Mangaung, that is why the Mother body (ANC) MUST DISBAND THE YOUTH LEAGUE, before it inflicts irrepairable damage. Besides, the YL is surplus to requirements now

The one sure thing about the dictatorial mind is that it cannot tolerate opposition or ambiguity and will always turn to aggression in the face of opposition because the only way to sustain its integrity is to shut out everything and all thoughts that do not feed its singular bias. Given this, Malema is clearly a dictatorial mind and Lamola is an opportunist that will lean in the direction of the stongest wind. Sadly, for the ANC, neither can lead the party anywhere and the supporters that gaze on can grasp hold of nothing because there is nothing to hold on to.
