Is the DA dying?

Has the DA lost touch of the grassroots or have they ever understood it? One can see that their voices are now divided and in-fighting is leaving them no longer a strong opposition. The EFF, is very close behind them awaiting their position. So whilst they sleep walk through the wilderness as a lost voice, other parties are aspiring to take their place. Organisations like IVOTESA are being warmly welcomed as the hope and integrity of the common South African – not just minorities.

Does the DA actually have a chance? One after another the leadership are dropping like flies. Have they come to the end of their journey? There is no longer a Zuma to blame or the pointing of incompetency, for they themselves have shown to be equally inadequate.

The DA was referred, during the leadership of Musi, to be a White party… and indeed it has shown its true colours. Once social reform at its herald cry to now LBGTI rights and minority issues. The people don’t have water, electricity, education and on it goes, but it’s new leader has decided that they would pursue lobbying for the minority issues – ignoring the plight of the many. Is it because they no longer are able to see or reach those in townships? Or could it be true that they are a White party?

So are we waiting for the gravediggers to collect the DA or can we not watch the spiraling of the vultures encircle its carcass? The DA is dying and a few words of obituary and a moment of silence would be required for they did fight a good fight.

The ANC has opened a case of treason against Malema 

During an episode of Talk To Al Jazeera last week, Malema told Jonah Hull that if the ruling ANC continued to respond violently to peaceful protests, “we will run out of patience very soon and we will remove this government through the barrel of a gun”.

“The ANC has just opened a case of high treason against EFF and its leader Julius Malema in his personal capacity with Hillbrow police station,” national spokesperson Ziti Kodwa told News24.

“The threat to remove a lawfully, democratically-elected leader through an undemocratic process is against the law and the Constitution.”We call on SAPS to investigate a charge of high treason,” he said.

This was after Malema told Al Jazeera that his party would “remove this government through the barrel of a gun”.

During an episode of Talk To Al Jazeera last week, Malema told Jonah Hull that if the ruling ANC continued to respond violently to peaceful protests, “we will run out of patience very soon and we will remove this government through the barrel of a gun”.

Malema was asked what this meant and if he was literally saying people should take up arms against the government. We are not going to have a government that disrespects us.

Will the EFF make South Africa a “BASKET CASE”?

According to the EFF founding manifesto The state should, through its legislative capacity, transfer all land to the state, which will administer and use land for sustainable development purposes.

The manifesto says those intending to use land under state control will apply for a land-use licence .

The licence would be valid for 25 years and could be renewed based on whether the land was being used as planned.

EFF leader Julius Malema says he is not aiming to be president of South Africa, but is focusing on his party becoming the government by 2019.

The party was open to working with any party who represents clean governance, anyone who wants to restore the dignity of black people , but would reject those who wanted to bring white dominance through the back door .

When asked whether the EFF policies would turn South Africa into an economic basket case with ratings agencies already breathing down the country’s neck, Malema said South Africa was at a point where alternative policies could be introduced.

We need to go to the court and stretch that constitutional clause, Malema replied, adding that the court should issue a declaratory order over whether compensation is necessary.

He wants the EFF to become the government, just not under his leadership.

“I don’t have ambition to become a president, I have an ambition of making the EFF the government of South Africa,” he said in an interview with Al Jazeera on Sunday night.

“I am not in this thing for myself.”

According to Malema’s math, the 6% his party got in the 2014 elections should increase to a point where the EFF is a serious contender in 2019… he’s obviously not paid that much attention to the Cope ‘fairytale’.

“We want to take this country by 2019,” he told Jonah Hull. ”And if we don’t take this country by 2019 we must be an official opposition with a clear direction of taking over power. Because we said, from the beginning, we are government in waiting.”

He added that the EFF is open to collaborating with any other political party “who represents clean governance, anyone who wants to restore the dignity of black people”, but not those who intend to bring back white dominance “through the back door”.

“We want a party that is ready to empower a black nation.”

Malema was then asked whether his party’s – insane – policies would turn SA into an economic “basket case,” but he simply said that SA is ready for alternative policies.

“We will remove this government through the barrel of a gun,” says Malema

EFF leader Julius Malema said during a televised interview that if the ANC continues to respond violently to peaceful protests “we will remove this government through the barrel of a gun”.

During an episode of Talk To Al Jazeera, Malema told Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull that if the ruling ANC continues to respond violently to peaceful protests: “We will run out of patience very soon and we will remove this government through the barrel of a gun.”

At the beginning of the interview Hull asked Malema how far he was willing to go in his “war” against President Jacob Zuma and reminded him of his 2014 threat to make the entire Gauteng province ungovernable.
“‘We will fight,’ you said. ‘We have the capability to mobilise our people and fight physically,” Hull said. “That’s not befitting of a government in waiting, is it?”
“We know for a fact that Gauteng ANC rigged elections here,” 

Malema replied.
“We know for a fact that they lost Johannesburg and they lost Gauteng. But we still accepted it. But they must know that we are not going to do that this year. We are not going to accept. Part of the revolutionary duty is to fight and we are not ashamed if the need arise for us to take up arms and fight. We will fight.
“This regime must respond peacefully to our demands, must respond constitutionally to our demands. And if they are going to respond violently – like they did in the township of Alexandra, just outside Johannesburg, when people said these results do not reflect the outcome of our votes, they sent the army to go and intimidate our people – we are not going to stand back. Zuma is not going to use the army to intimidate us. We are not scared of the army. We are not scared to fight. We will fight.”
Hull asked Malema to clarify this. “When you say you are willing to take up arms, that’s what you mean?”
“Literally. Against the government?”
Malema responded: “Yeah, literally. I mean it literally. We are not scared. We are not going to have a government that disrespects us.”
Hull: “And on what basis, under which circumstances? If they respond violently to our peaceful protest.”

Malema said: “We are a very peaceful organisation. We fight our battles through peaceful means, through the courts, through parliament, through mass moblisation. We do that peacefully. But at times, government gets tempted to respond to such with violence. They beat us up in parliament and they send soldiers to places like Alexandra where people are protesting. We will run out of patience very soon and we will remove this government through the barrel of a gun.”
Earlier, Malema had denied that Zuma was his primary concern.
“We are not waged in a war against Zuma and the ANC. We are waging a war against white monopoly capital. Zuma is not our enemy. The ANC is not our enemy. They are standing in our way to crushing white monopoly capital, which has stolen our land, which controls the wealth of our country. As we are in the process of crushing the white monopoly capital, there will be some of those irritations that we have to deal with. Zuma represents such an irritation; the ANC represents such an irritation.”

Malema’s Solution for South Africa: “Have more babies!”

“Give birth and expand because if we do not make children we are going to disappear as a Black nation. To make children is a revolutionary duty‚ because children represents reproduction of society. And when you reproduce yourself you reproduce your ideas and legacy. White people do not want us to give birth because they know we are more than them. So that they can be more than us and the day they are more than us they will take over our land‚”

Given that all discussions with the Economic Freedom Fighters center around a racialistic driven motivation, therefore I’m certain that no matter the context of discussion if it is contrary to the “Commander and Chief” then you are labelled as a racist. Those who are non-blacks appear not to be qualified to engage in any form of disagreement with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) least they be marked a racist.

I can understand that the media hopes to build the party of the EFF so they become the thorn in the flesh to the African National Congress (ANC). However, the problem with this strategy is that people believe what they read. It appears of recent that reports of the EFF party have been favourable and positive, however I find that just as the western countries meddling with the Middle-East believing that setting another extremist group to eradicate the other will result with the same or greater problem.

In a recent speech delivered in Soweto, Mr Julius Malema stated:

“Give birth and expand because if we do not make children we are going to disappear as a Black nation. To make children is a revolutionary duty‚ because children represents reproduction of society. And when you reproduce yourself you reproduce your ideas and legacy. White people do not want us to give birth because they know we are more than them. So that they can be more than us and the day they are more than us they will take over our land.”

I won’t intend to become scientific in this blog – only to highlight that such rhetoric is irresponsible and foolish. As Malema intends to build his cult-followers of non-thinkers we see that his message is filled with apartheid rhetoric. The poverty rate in South Africa is almost on par with the unemployment and yet this “Commander and Chief” advises his followers to – HAVE MORE BABIES!

It is clear that the EFF have no regard or concerns for people’s welfare instead their sole hope is that they get more mindless followers believing that an ideology of hate is the way forward. It’s always about inciting hatred between blacks and whites, it’s always about taking that which is not belonging to them.

Malema indicates the motivation of making more children would be, “when you reproduce yourself you reproduce your ideas and legacy”. The reason for needing primary uneducated, unemployed and poverty stricken black people to have babies because the ideology of the EFF is so far-fetched that no rational person with a brain would want to live in a world of constant war with each other. Voting for the EFF and supporting Malema is to accept his battle-cry to war against the races once again – just as their name indicates, Economic Freedom Fighters.

The media must impede to promote this organisation as it clearly provide direction to those who got nothing and nothing to do but have babies to soon compulsory enlist you to this “revolutionary ideology”. Take note how many times the supporters of the Economic Freedom Fighters would use the word, “revolutionary” – this is because they intend to do which is beyond common rational sense opposed to that which is for the betterment of our country.

 

 

Is Civil War Brewing in South Africa?

Inevitably, frictions between the ANC & EFF are ever increasing with opposing views, and each one attempting to take control of the spoils. Could this be the brewing of civil war in South Africa?

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) led by Commander and Chief Julius Malema has in recent years dominated the political stage of South Africa. Despite eefthe leadership change of the Democratic Party, the main opposition party to the government, they have still been overshadowed by the EFF.

In contrast, and no matter how corrupt the African National Congress (ANC) has become they are still being seen as the undisputed “heavy weight champion” political party of South Africa.

The EFF are not shy to controversy, proudly wearing berets and red overalls, not mentioning the many disruptions to Parliamentary proceedings and opposing to a non-compliance of any rule or protocol even with their own leader recently suspended for openly accusing an h0nourable peer as a murderer. The EFF continues to grow and samobilize attracting its followers with a better life of taking it by force from those who have “plenty”.

Meanwhile the ANC are observing and are clearly struggling to deal with the Prodigal son, Malema. It’s been so long that anyone so radical as JuJu (Malema)- who has shaken up the years of complacency and security that no party would be able to challenge their right to the throne. So confident that even President Jacob Zuma even once mentioned that “the ANC will be in power even when Jesus comes”.

Inevitably, frictions between the ANC & EFF are ever increasing with opposing views, and each one attempting to take control of the spoils. Could this be the brewing of civil war in South Africa?

EEF is willing to ask the difficult questions whilst others sing silent night!

It appears that the EEF despite how how radical their views, they do have the courage to challenge the government. This video will show how the presiding chair lost control and requested a Minister of Parliament to withdraw a fact without reason.

Don’t Incite Hatred to our Youth on this Youth Day!

I have recently come to realise that this notion is true and that some parents, teachers, political influencers and leaders in our communities are irresponsible by teaching our youths to hate and continue the struggle.

EFF and Zuma’s Cabinet are contributors to this ideology and a need to grow-up. The EFF are wearing red overalls and berets yet driving the latest German engineering (Grow up!). It is not anyone’s time, it is our country and it’s our time to act responsibly. Stop those in authority preaching their political prejudices by brainwashing our youths!

It’s clear that the wounds of apartheid are still raw in some of our people. Some can’t let go of the pains and anger, which have cost them great sacrifices so that this new South Africa can be formed – as one nation despite colour. However, the novelty of South Africa’s newness is slowly wearing-out and true emotions of hurt are yet again beginning to fester. The colours black and white are becoming more visible due to some of the unfair Policies Mr Zuma’s cabinet imposing on our nation to distinguish colour.

auMany of the young people who have not experienced injustice have taken it upon their stride to seek retribution. There is anger and hatred towards the oppressors of the past. Zuma’s administration has demonstrated that Madiba’s and Tutu’s philosophy of forgiveness and reconciliation showed weakness as opposed to the dominating of South Africa – so that the Whites, Indians, Asians and Coloureds all know that South Africa is not their land.

Being African is a current trend and we all want to show that we are – but the term, “African” can be ambiguous. It has subtly the connotation of the exclusivity towards the “native descendants of the Bantu”.

Future President of South Africa? – Don’t misjudge Julius Malema for a fool

Many people make jokes about Mr Malema and his incoherent rhetoric, his educational background and obliviousness nature in dealing with allegations. People laugh at his uniform and protests. However I’m afraid that Mr Malema would soon have the last laugh.

Many people make jokes about Mr Malema and his incoherent rhetoric, his educational background and obliviousness nature in dealing with allegations. People laugh at his uniform and protests. However I’m afraid that Mr Malema would soon have the last laugh.

Peruse through his curriculum vitae below and see that this is not your “garden-boy”. He is ambitious and his ideologies are controversial. He deliberately captures and spins the media to his bidding. He has been strategic and cautious in choosing his battles- given that 2013 may have not been the best year for him. This morning’s news article mentions: “The opposition Economic Freedom Fighters, which has contested very few by-elections since its launch as a political party, will take part in by-elections in KwaZulu-Natal for the first time on Wednesday.” If Mr Malema is such a fool then how is it that he appears to be recently the voice of reason. The voice which is speaking the people’s language, this may well be the people spokesmen! He has some seriously controversial policies, which can be liken to the leaders of Zimbabwe, Kenya and Uganda, and to that just may result in the South African economy being destroyed. But is that a bad thing? Should monetary gain be the greater importance in comparison to an entire nation? Should not the mines and commodities of South Africa belong to the people of South Africa? Or the land of the homeless to reclaim property to which had been plundered? At present everyone is mentioning the symptoms of a bad managed government however Mr Malema is brave enough to express his radical ideas for change. The politicians in their lovely suits and entourage are too busy being pampered while Mr Malema is in his overall working hard to be the President of South Africa. Given that the GDP & GNP may decline, that inflation may increase and that food scarcity and foreign aid may diminish. Given that foreigners may have to leave and that Indians, Whites, and Coloured may fall at the hands of a radical for who needs skill when equality and justice means more than money?
