Num: Malema is a 'dangerous fellow'

2012-09-14 17:38

Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema was a "dangerous fellow", the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said on Friday.

Malema has never worked anywhere in his life and has failed to unite the ANCYL, said deputy president Piet Matosa.

"He only wants to see people suffering and without jobs... hence we continue to warn miners against this dangerous fellow."

Malema has been visiting miners since the Lonmin [JSE:LON] Marikana strike commenced last month.

Last week, he told striking miners at Gold Fields [JSE:GFI] near Carletonville not go back to work until their demands were met.

He also called on a national strike to take place once a week every month.

Matosa said Malema did not contribute a cent to starving Aurora mineworkers who went for months without receiving their wages.

"Instead, he decided to demolish a R3m house and build an R18m mansion during that time. He is not a good leader."

He said NUM was getting close to finding out who funded Malema.

"Malema can't be pulling this by himself. He is too young for that... we are getting close to finding out who his funders are."

    Then when you find the funders what are gonna to to them? Arrest them? You have found malema why need the funders?

      maybe malema is eating out of zumas hand. We do not know. Why is zuma so quiet.Malema is being protected by him. Maybe he is goverment funded to make the gap smaller between rich and poor. Or maybe he is busy doing what the goverment wants to do but they do not have the balls. Malema is in control of zuma.(What does malema know?) This code will only be broken once they have brought the country to its knees.

      If Julius cares so much why doesn't he sell his 18M mansion and fund these poor miners. Don't those miners that follow him wonder where he gets his cash from?

  • lesetjavictor.maloka - 2012-09-14 18:14

    he is young and brave, not forgetting he messed up in the passed, but he's shaping up to be a great leader, watch the space..

      boom.afridi.56 - 2012-09-14 18:24

      I'm scared...

      roger.kaputnick.90 - 2012-09-14 18:37

      No Dude, he IS dangerous and it's not for the reasons you are thinking but because he is stupid & physco.

      I know africans for many years and once they turn they turn en masse. There will be no place for fatboy to hide. The tide is turning fast on the idiot.

  • peter.mokoena.31 - 2012-09-14 18:21

    I do not understand how organised labour should be part of the tripatriate alliance. They should also be more dangerous for eyeing cushy position within the government. Who is fooling who?

      siphom.mnguni - 2012-09-14 18:59

      Thank you, Peter, for your comment you've hit the nail on the head. You know what when I raised an objection in 1994 about mixing organised labour with politics I was villified by the shortsighted imbeciles. I was very much involved in the unions then and I then lost interest. If unions were concentrating on labour issues not ANC succession battles we wouldn't have this situation now.

      peter.mokoena.31 - 2012-09-14 19:52

      You did an honourable thing. There is a lot of conflict of interest between Mangaung and the interest of the workers. The case is point is Aurora. Now the workers has been bundled to vote for the ruling party via the alliance. Shouldn't Ramaphosa be having a clearer understanding. Or they also want to be the richer Jay Naidoos?

  • lacrimose.wolf - 2012-09-14 18:29

    We told you all this YEARS ago - and you laughed and said "it cannot be", "we encourage radicalism in our youth". Now the genie's out of the bottle, you're all madly scrambling to try and CYA. JM, LonMin etc are all the symptom not the cause. The Alliance are liable for where things are now. JM is your creation and your downfall.

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-09-14 21:39

      @tshililo.siobo - I think that the whole concept of collectivist thinking and culture of eternal patronage, never allowed for the possibility that someone like JM would ever take them on.

  • khselolo - 2012-09-14 18:31

    why should NUM be interest on Malema's funder. Ur real interest should be on workers. I guess NUM is the jerk of all trade, starting from investigation officer, Property business, Investers... NUM cannot be trusted, it is an organised union with a goal to strip workers' money

      krish.reddy.104 - 2012-09-16 14:12

      Julius Malema cannot be trusted. He is a rogue and should be locked up for good before he rapes our poor country.

  • patrick.nkosi.39 - 2012-09-14 18:32

    dis young man is runnig out or idias mr malema pls keep quiet so dat our coutry can b save

  • juicecard.tshaka - 2012-09-14 18:38

    Stupid comment from the deputy president of NUM.These workers subscribe to this useless union and how he expects funding from Malema defies logic.They are the ones who should be looking at the welfare of the workers

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-09-14 18:50

      At this stage of the game, all we will hear is stupid comments because there's nothing left to say and too much left undone

      mawetu.janda - 2012-09-15 07:34

      Are you aware that your comment makes YOU very much stupid either.please put your mind to whatever you comment on. The stricking miners are working and have nothing yet Malema is not working and has millions.He is selfish He Can't even feed the starving mtricking miners He claims to support.They are only fed by Gift of the Givers.

  • jacoists - 2012-09-14 18:40

    There is a saying \I think therefor I'm dangerous. How can this idiot think hence he doesn't realize what his incitements does to the economy. I'm employed as a Law Enforcer at a mining town and let me tell you that most of these striking mine workers are also uneducated and not intelligent enough to see that Malema has a negative influence on their financial positions and obligations. NUM please revise your statement that he\s dangerous and replace it with some word that describes his stupidity and incapabilities. You make him feel important by telling people he is dangerous

  • hsebolelo - 2012-09-14 18:42

    NUM must use the billions to feed the Aurora, Malema is not deductin any percent from the Workers' Money

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-09-14 18:55

      Thank you hsebolelo - Aurora has been going on for TWO YEARS and not a squeak out of govt or the unions. Because one of their own is behind that appalling human rights & fiscal travesty, no-one has anything to say. Hypocrites.

      krish.reddy.104 - 2012-09-16 14:18

      How sure are you of that ? He is capable of stealing from the dead.

  • jake.ko.71 - 2012-09-14 18:46

    Exactly no person in South Africa...even if you were born rich, NO ONE have so much money at the age of 30 like Malema does.. which is R18 million He is probably the only 30 year old in South African History to have R18 million at the age of 30...and he never done any labour work in his life like 99% of the us in South Africa have done and must do. .....he talks about all these white people that are rich....None of them have R18 million at the age of 30.... The biggest fraudster in South African History = Malema!!!! Feeding poison into poor people’s minds .... they believe him and do what ever he say they must do, even if it makes them loose there jobs. Tonight those same poor people go back to their poor communities eating soup and pap next to the little fire, not knowing if they will have a job tomorrow ....while he goes and live in his newly build R18 million mansion ...having a wild party with the elite!!! The biggest fraudster in South African History = Malema!!!! No wonder the Hawks are after him :)

  • Bongiwe Bongie Mabongz Dlutu - 2012-09-14 18:47

    \Malema never work anywhere in his life\....he lack job experiance just like me...I wonder who is funding him and influencing him to do such things...he like using \poor people\ 4 his benefits yet he never help a single 1...

    We,South Africans, will be very much happy to know who finances this vampire Pig(Malema) to feeds HIMSELF with blood of our poor brothers who died in Marikana.He is cheating on them. .They are living in shacks and He has demolished a R3m house to build a R18m could he claim to be fighting for miners to be well paid yet He could't even pay His garden Boy well and in time.He is just a Dummy!

  • msaka.lekhosi - 2012-09-14 19:13

    Did he, Piet Matosa, contribute something from his pocket? And let's see if president Jacob Zuma will be able to unite the ANC.

  • glen.e.huysamer - 2012-09-14 19:14

    I can't recall NUM ever supporting their own members at Aurora. Num is lying again as per usual.

  • Phil.Kleynhans - 2012-09-14 19:32

    Malema is busy digging a grave for himself. He is dangerous but how far can you go. ANC is sleeping and is busy falling out of a Boeing

  • nkosinathi.g.malindi - 2012-09-14 19:43

    You forgot to mention who funds NUM. (BloodSuckers)

  • siphom.mnguni - 2012-09-14 19:47

    \Malema is a 'dangerous fellow', really? Really? The last time I checked he was insulting the former President the silence was deafening. At one stage we were once told that he was a young man with radical ideas who need proper guidance and we were told that he had a potential to be this country leader. Since when is he a 'dangerous fellow'. Desperate times call for desperate measures, isn't it?

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-09-14 21:47

      He's dangerous because despite all the careful coaching and feeding and trying to turn him into the poster boy of what a success The Struggle was, it wasn't. And this is what happens when you pin your entire "renaissance" strategy on one person instead of getting on with the work you swore you would do.

  • donovan.gabriel.77 - 2012-09-14 20:51

    When he opens his mouth,\r\nPeople wanna run south.\r\nHe's so dumb, he just can't see,\r\nA leader of this country, he,ll never be.\r\nSo stay in ur mansion, or build a new one,\r\nAnd be king of ur castle, or forever remain,\r\nA rat, an idiot, a low down rascal.

  • nananatakemehome - 2012-09-15 01:30

    NUM intellectuals like Piet Matosa, who play the man and not the ball leave me NUMb! All I can say is 'ja, nee wat?'

  • dentamokhabz - 2012-09-15 06:57

    It is clear Num has failed workers. Malema should not be blamed for the cry of the workers. Num should stop certifying Anc but certify workers who are its constituency.

      svee.svee.7 - 2012-09-16 07:53

      NUM has failed us a lot in the mining industries we are done. So is time 4 change what surprised me is Malema never volunteered but called because NUM said workers are rebels. How can u lead some1 yet u failed 2 take a mandate 4rm him/her who do u represent actually? That's a question left unanswered in workers' minds. What NUM has done was a clear indication that it serves its interest on behalf of workers. So stop accusing Malema 4 nothing instead he opened us eyes. Your biggest challenge now as the workers' organization is to make sure those workers get what they deserve, cos by so doing, workers believe en faith in NUM as their organization will be retained.

  • jimi.harrison.7 - 2012-09-15 07:31

    mal emma \was\ supposed to be the president for the \YOUTH\. Not president of SA! Should be more worried about the education of the youth in limpopo than try and stop minerrs from working!!!!!! He wouldn't have been expelled today

      limpopo.mobiletv - 2012-09-17 08:38

      Malema is not dangerous.dangerous are those fights against,you expect him to sit and watch the sa ship drown deep into the sea,that he wont allow he's a combrade who fights for the nation,we natured him,he will never back down.just like rambo he's well trained.mark my words he will be a president the papers everyday

  • limpopo.mobiletv - 2012-09-17 08:47

    what a joke,you they say Malema has ppl who funds him.that's so lame,what do they think he was earning in anc.let him enjoy his cash.why cant they investigate their corrupt

  • gramoitheki - 2012-09-17 18:19

  • mlungisi.mlu.568 - 2012-09-18 10:16

    Piet Mantosa is talking poppycock. How can Malema be dangerous, for Miners to get paid is NUM's responsibility and they are failing. Even if Malema is corrupt, So is the ANC top hirachy, led by the its Chief Commander Zuma, who still has a corruption hanging over his head.

  • mlungisi.mlu.568 - 2012-09-18 10:20

    ANC and its affiliates are not playing the ball(politics)but playing the man(Malema).Clearly, politically Malema will beat them hands-down,if they were politcally powerful, they would nt have a problem with Malema adressing any gathering.

  • mzondistanley - 2012-10-10 18:37

    It's True Malema belongs to secret forces which group themselves under the cover of darkness to fuel descent against any Government that he is not part of!!! and not agaist President Zuma!! It's a lie to say that he is a Friend of Motlanthe!!
