Malema doesn't deserve platform: iLIVE
South Africa has a very serious problem ("High alert", yesterday). I ask:
- How can an ordinary South Africa n citizen be allowed access to a military base to talk to the soldiers?
- What qualifies Julius Malema to hear their grievances and discuss them?
- Soldiers are the property of the state and should be addressed en masse only if the state has authorised it.
- If Malema says anything against our government or its members, it can be construed as inciting insurrection and violence and committing treason.
We have Boeremag members who are in jail for those reasons.
- Malema is not representing any political party. He is speaking and acting on his own behalf and for his own benefit. - Jason Fivaz, by e-mail
I WAS one of the people who voted for Julius Malema to be re-elected as president of the ANC Youth League. I soon regretted it.
I apologise for putting this ill-disciplined fellow in a position of responsibility in our movement, the movement that people like Walter Sisulu, Anton Lembede and Peter Mokaba led with dignity.
Malema now wants to destroy the National Union of Mineworkers. For him to walk in the blood trails of Marikana and call for a new union is counter-revolutionary.
If Malema read Mao Tse Tung's writings on discipline and understood them, he would still be a key leader of our movement.
Malema is just an ill-disciplined populist and a stand-up comedian.
