ANC leaders not in control

I still don't understand how the ANC could let Julius Malema get away with such an irresponsible statement.

I still don't understand how the ANC could let Julius Malema get away with such an irresponsible statement.

I am now convinced that he is not leadership material. As a member of the ANCYL, I will never take up any arms for anybody except the ANC and my beloved country so many comrades died for.

Malema is clearly attacking our democracy, which the Lembedes and Hanis fought and died for. These great leaders must be turning in their graves.

The National Prosecuting Authority and our courts can never be held to ransom or be intimidated. The ANC is slowly losing the respect it once commanded and next year's election will prove that.

Not a single member of the NEC, SACP or Cosatu has called him to order. How can we allow him to mislead our already frustrated youth like this? Sometimes it is necessary to be radical - but be radical and responsible, not radical and stupid!

His June 16 statement is in total contrast to what the ANC president is preaching all over the world. The ANC should do some soul-searching because our leaders are not in control.

Malema, our security forces are ready to defend the legacy and democracy left behind by freedom fighters.

We are tired of people like you who encourage fights against African brothers, sisters and freedom fighters.
