Media ignores Malema's achievements

By unknown | Mar 20, 2009 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

Julius Malema has achieved a lot as ANC Youth League president and it is a shame that some sections of the media choose to deliberately ignore these achievements.

In a Sowetan article on March 12, it became evident that he is not "disrespectful" to the elderly and that he has a passion for people.

He visited an area in Mpumalanga and promised the people that he will return with Jacob Zuma so that the bucket system is eradicated. True to his word, he returned with Zuma and proper toilets are being constructed there.

Lately, he gave shoes to poor school kids in various parts of the country. His offer to help Mbhazima Shilowa's son with his studies was well reported, but interpreted as an election ploy by some.

In the same article, he acknowledged that he is notmature enough for a government post. He also said that he respects everybody and fears no one. We need to instil that in our youth. Respect does not mean one should be naïve, stupid and submissive. Malema should be understood in that context.

He understands ANC policies. He knows the president and ministers are deployed by the ruling party and as such are not bigger than the ANC. When he was the first to say that Thabo Mbeki would be recalled, the media protested because they do not understand ANC policies. But Malema knew that people in government are its agents
