Winnie calls for land reform

2011-06-19 15:37

Johannesburg - ANC veteran Winnie Madikizela-Mandela called for a revision of South Africa's land reform policies after making a surprise appearance at the youth league conference in Johannesburg on Sunday.

"It (land reform) has failed and needs to be revisited," she told delegates, referring to the willing buyer, willing seller land policy.

The African National Congress Youth League was expected to pass a resolution on land reform on Sunday, the fourth and last day of its 24th conference at Gallagher Estate in Midrand.

The league wants to push for land expropriation without compensation.

Madikizela-Mandela addressed the delegates after making an unannounced visit.

"I came here to congratulate my children," she said.

Madikizela-Mandela likened youth leader Julius Malema, who was re-elected on Friday, and Gauteng sports MEC and league chairperson Lebogang Maile to ANC icons Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo.

Maile declined a nomination to challenge Malema after he failed to secure enough support.

Madikizela-Mandela, who heaped praise on the youth leaders, said she hoped Malema and Maile would maintain the friendship they had displayed at the conference.

"You have proved the prophets of doom wrong who predicted a chaotic congress," she said.

    In 2003, she was found guilty on 43 counts of fraud and 25 of theft. WMM intimate relationship the overt criminal Hazel Crane is no secret. Are we surprised then that SA is today in the sate it is – if indeed the country is (unofficially) under the control WMM. The ANCYL is simply an extension of the Mandela United Football Club – a youth militia that serves the repulsively HATE agenda of WMM - hence, the re-election of Malema, is one of the darkest days in the history of SA.

    LETS REFORM THE LAND POLICY- HOW DOES A CRIMINAL STILL GET QUOTED. I HAVE A GREAT POLICY THAT WORKS EVERY TIME WORLD WIDE. IT GOES LIKE THIS. IF YOU WANT LAND , SAVE ,SELECT AND PAY FOR IT.ANYTHING ELSE MAKES YOU THE SAME AS THE COMMON CRIMINAL QUOTED IN THIS ARTICLE. .

    Winnie is just another criminal (like Malema) allowed to make the headlines. Easy as that. The problem this criminals don't understand is that crime pays in the short term. In the long term it comes back to you. Here they rule and everyone listens. Overseas they are the joke of the centuary and are seen as the criminals they are. When they have chased all the white people out of S.A. they will feel what it means to be poor. They will be hated by their own nation which will, hopefully, came to realise they are just common thieves and racists set to enrich themselves. They will also realise the ANCYL and ANC does not even care about the black person in the street as well, except for elections. Funnily, if the white people leave the ANC won't stay the controlling party since the only reason for them being there was specifically to help the blacks overcome poverty by stealing from the whites. No whites, no one to steal from except each other, no more ANC.
