Malema has no manners

Regarding this whole ANCYL, Jacob Zuma and President Thabo Mbeki saga, I strongly believe that whoever this Julius Malema thinks he is, he does not have the qualities of a leader.

If he is a youth leader and is behaving the way he does, where is he leading our youth to? What example is he setting for the already corrupt and marred youth of today?

We are all crying and praying for a better South Africa and he boldly makes such stupid and silly statements. Whether it is politics or not, respect is still expected from everybody, especially among us black people. I am not much into politics, but for heaven's sake, Thabo Mbeki is an elderly man. We have to respect for our elders. This young man, Malema, needs to be taught a lesson in humility.

If this is how our future leaders behave, then we are doomed.

Also, if Zuma does not call him to order, he must be careful because when the wheel turns, Malema will address the ANC president exactly the same way as he does Mbeki - with utter disrespect. Manners maketh a man, especially in this democratic South Africa.
