The hate files
Don’t get me wrong, I like Jacob Zuma’s presidency. He lead South Africa through the 2010 SWC with flying colours, and made me pretty proud. But before his career as President started, Zuma was probed extensively for his involvement in activities that ranged from corruption to fraud. A long-winded court case began, and during a 208 rally, Malema vowed to arm the youth against the country if he was not acquitted. Here is what he said: “Let us make it clear now: we are prepared to die for Zuma. Not only that, we are prepared to take up arms and kill for Zuma.”
I’m sorry, but if this statement didn’t scare the crap out of free thinkers, then I don’t know. This is where it began – let’s have a little peek at his career since then.
Malema vs Zille:
What started out as a bizzarely humorous war of the words between DA leader Helen Zille and Julius Malema began to reach uncomfortable preportions when he referred to her as “suffering from satanism”. Yes fine, politics is a dirty business – but we have to draw the line and vicious statements coming from the youth representative of the ruling party. Seriously! Then, he called her a cockroach: “You have put a cockroach in cabinet and we need to remove that cockroach by voting the ANC into power”. Sounds like a threat to me…
Our president Jacob Zuma was also accused, and subsequently acquitted, of rape a few years ago. The case went very quiet for a while, until weasel Malema opened his fat mouth and said that the woman in question “had a nice time”. “When a woman didn’t enjoy it, she leaves early in the morning. Those who had a nice time will wait until the sun comes out, request breakfast and ask for taxi money,” Malema said, sparking outrage from several women’s groups. He was taken to the Equality Court for this statement, and was then ordered to pay a R50 000 fine, which he is now refusing to pay. “I deliberately refuse to pay the R50 000 as a matter of principle. They can attach all my property,” he has claimed that it is a matter of principle, and he will not pay the fine. But you really have to question the man’s “principles” when he is making such slanderous statements in the first place. I feel so very sorry for that poor woman, and all the others out there who are blamed for what happens to them.
