Malema misses Mangaung deadline

By Sapa | Dec 19, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 81 ]

Axed ANC Youth League president Julius Malema’s plight will not be discussed in Mangaung, party secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said.

A letter by Malema asking for his job back was too late for the programme of the ANC’s national conference, Mantashe told reporters in Bloemfontein.

He said the letter surfaced on December 16, on the first day of the ANC’s national elective conference, and after the programme was adopted.

Ousted ANCYL spokesman Floyd Shivambu said on Monday he, along with Malema and former ANCYL secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa, submitted the letter on Sunday to ask the party to “reverse the outcomes... that culminated in our suspensions and expulsion from the ANC”.

The three said they were willing to behave appropriately in future.

“We remain loyal supporters and members of the ANC willing to be corrected and guided under its principles.”  The trio said they had not gone to court because they believed the national conference should take another look at the disciplinary process that led to their expulsion.

  Mantashe said the Malema matter had been “handled and was done” by the party’s disciplinary structures.

“It was exhausted and finished.”  He acknowledged it could have been handled at the conference, but the letter had arrived too late.

He joined the ANC when he was 9 - long time to be there and not learn how far he can push the leaders. Genuinely believed he can just say something and it is true. Eish bra - too much tenders can make you believe your own story.

JuJu is a man without a future - that is unless he can find a place in Zimbobwe - but then again there are no pensions in Zim.

Maybe just maybe the three musketeers believe that because they were members of the "youth" league, they should then be treated as such & all should be forgotten because they behaved just like any other rebellious youth out there...........Well guess what bafowethu ha e spane daai ding.......Julle is groot adults and every outburst, insult, disrepectful comments towards your elders was no sudden incident & you confirmed that by repeating such statements over and over on public platforms nogal........

So the way I see it & what you should learn from this is that invincibility is just another poor(mental capacity) man's fable....and yes karma is a bi*#^h!!!!!

I have always maintain that Juju wasand is still a political toddler while Mbalula is at his juvenile stage, even if Zuma can leave top anc position, there are still season cadres like Joel, Trevor, Pallo Jordan and including but not limited to Kgalema himself who need to be considered first before they can think of their razmatazz, I am surprise they even managed to fool Mashatile that he is ripe to lead the anc at its highest position in its structures, the saying which goes like "When a snail tries to speak like a tortoise it can only break its shell with the sound of its voice" hold true to Malema, I might not be a Zuma fan but it serves Malema right what is currently happening.

Tjo malema weee
u are wet mouthed and have no full stop, never been taught respect i assume.
u insulted mr Pres like he as ur junior taliking rubish like u were thee person ova everybody else.
humility pays at times even if u dont agree with people add respect of coz, bcz nobody knows the future. in Zulu they say ikhotheyikhothayo engayikhothi iyayikhahlela.

u knew mr pres way back of what he is capable of and the mistake u made was to think u were the full force behind him and ignoring the God given wisdom in him to twist things around.
he might have used u for his way up. but u must have not left ur respect behind and go gun blazing on him.

I guess bab' Motlanthe assumed u can b of help to him too , but any ways he walked out like a gentleman at his age compared to u

@ThirdEye

"Ja but the NEC can always handle the letter, so if Gwede is not playing dirty politics, he will take it to the first NEC meeting".

ThirdEye, you are very wrong my friend, the conference was the last resort for Malema. Let me remind you that he appealed his expulsion with the Appeals Committee chaired by Ramaphosa and he failed, he took his appeal to the NEC where it was rejected, now this conference was the last stage of his appeal. Malema misled himself and others by thinking that he had more support in the ANC than Zuma and Mantashe, and i hope the issue of who the king maker is in the ANC must be laid to rest, deligates have proven beyond any reasonable doubt that they are the true king makers, not the ANCYL.
