... warns jobless youths 'not to trust the rich politicians'...
Oct 22 2011 - SAPA: Diepsloot township, Johannesburg. Filthy-rich ANC Youth League president Julius Malema left many township residents hopeful for the future in a speech at Diepsloot on Saturday. He promised them all jobs and an end of poverty for all.
"I hope Malema's visit will soon lead to job creation and end of poverty in this area, resident Johanna Rabure said. Rabure, 30, was one of about 5,000 people who cheered the youth league leader when he arrived and left the Diepsloot recreation centre. Many people jumped for opportunities to see and take pictures of Malema with their cellphones.
His visit was an effort to drum up support for ANCYL marches from Johannesburg, to Sandton and Pretoria - on October 27 and 28. His march is also supported by the co-ruling Cosatu trade union movement. He got permission for the march by the Johannesburg metro-police department, but won't be allowed to take it on the major highways, Sapa noted.
Peter Letsoalo, 25, showed support for Malema's call to the residents to fully take part in the march. "I will definitely participate because I've been unemployed for the past four years despite being a college graduate," he said. "We rely on the ANCYL to fight for our rights as the youth, and this is a chance to play a role as well in addressing our needs."
"The youth league would not enjoy freedom as long as there was poverty in the country", Malema said in his address. "We are here for everyone of you. We will not rest until you stop worrying about where your next meal will come from," he said. "We will restore the land to the people and I will go to jail to fight for the poor. Every time we sing or speak for our freedom, other people take us to court," he said. "When Nelson Mandela fought for land, they took him to prison just like us. This means there is no freedom in this country."
He also claimed that "the nationalisation of the mines would create jobs and fight poverty in Diepsloot and other impoverished areas: Diepsloot children are exposed to dirty water running down the streets and when they fall sick, their parents can't afford to take them to private hospitals because they are poor", Malema said.
He lambasted ANC-cabinet ministers for "discouraging poor people from marching against poverty. Do not listen to them [ministers] because their lives are always surrounded by luxuries while you live in poverty."
(Of course Malema does not shun a luxurious life-style himself: in fact he's filthy rich yet nobody knows where his wealth comes from. (details below).
Malema said he was proud of the ANC-led government, but he would always pressure it to deliver its pre-election promises of a better life for all. He also took a swipe at the media over its coverage of his recent slander of Indians in Thembelihle in Lenasia earlier in the week. He claims his use of the word 'makula' did not mean 'coolie' and was an error in translation. "Certain journalists did not know African languages well enough and often translate things "wrongfully".
The league's Economic Freedom Youth Mass Action will take place on October 27 and 28. The march starts in Johannesburg: from Beyers Naude Square, to the Chamber of Mines in Johannesburg, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in Sandton and then they will place the Union Buildings in Pretoria under siege that night and the next day. He was scheduled to also speak at Ivory Park near Midrand later on Saturday and will also drum up support for the march in Heidelberg, Meyerton, Sebokeng and Everton.
Meanwhile the Star newspaper reported that Ancyl has dropped its plans to march to Pretoria on the N1 freeway after talks with traffic authorities. They were granted permission for the march but, said metropolitan-police official Edna Mamonyane, "it won't be happening on any of the city's highways.' She would release the march-route only two days before it would start. SAPA http://www.sapa.org.za/public/browse.cfm
This report in The Star newspaper claims that the ruling African National Congress youth league leader Julius Malema owns a R3,6m house in Sandown and a R1m mansion in Polokwane, both of which he paid cash.
- Two houses: R4,6million
- Cars: R1,2million’s worth of vehicles; …
- Breitling watch: R250 000; at least one Gucci suit;
- Monthly salary: R20, 000 …
This disclosure, which adds to questions surrounding how the youth league president affords his lavish lifestyle, comes just a day after Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan announced that targeted lifestyle audits would be conducted this year. The Star has discovered that Malema bought his three-bedroom home in Sandown for R3,6-million in December last year.
And, according to the Deeds Office, he owns two houses. The other is a mansion he bought in Pietersburg/Polokwane in his Limpopo 'homeland' in 2007 for R1m. The house in Sandown is in Silvela Road and the Deeds Office indicates that he bought it for R36-million. However the previous owner indicated that the house was sold for R3,6m. The Sandown house has been described as luxurious, with three bedrooms, an office, a TV room, a lounge, a pool and a large garden. It is the same house in which Malema held a controversial house-warming party in September last year.
A police reservist said at the time that he was assaulted by the youth league leader. Neighbours complained about the noise and mess that Malema's party had caused. It was a sophisticated bash. YFM DJ Oskido provided the music, and guests were treated to R700-a-bottle Johnnie Walker Gold Label whisky and Moët et Chandon French Champagne. When asked how he could afford to buy a R3.6m house cash, Malema reacted angrily.
"You and your husband and your family - that's who you need to write about. You go away, just go away," he said before slamming down the phone.
ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu said The Star was being nonsensical. "I think you need to rethink what you are doing. What business is this of yours? How dare you call me and ask for comment on this?" It's not the first time questions surrounding the scale of Malema's lifestyle have emerged.
Sources in the youth league have said he earns R20, 000 a month. At the same time that the transfer of the Sandown house went through, Malema attended a press conference in a Gucci suit, and sported a Breitling watch worth about R250 000. The 28-year-old politician also owns a black Mercedes-Benz AMG, which retails at R734 000, and reportedly drives an Aston Martin and a red Range Rover Sport, too. Last night he went to a lecture at Wits University in a brand-new white Range Rover - with no number plates - which sells for R1,2m.
Malema is the director of four companies: 101 Junjus Trading CC, Blue Nightingale Trading 61, Ever Roaring Investment and SGL Engineering Projects.
Democratic Alliance opposition party youth league leader Khume Ramulifho said he “had heard that Malema earned a lot more than the R20 000 he claims. It is said that he earns as much as a Minister, and that is why he will not go to Parliament or take up any other office," said Ramulifho, who owns one car - an Audi A4 - and a house in Riverlea. http://www.thestar.co.za/index.php?fSectionId=2500&fDate=2010-02-19&fEdition=2
2011-10-22 source: Die Burger journalist Carryn-Ann Nel - The voices of the two black males charged with the torture-murders of Stilbaai Afrikaner shopkeepers Jan and Elizabeth-Ann Smith were accidentially recorded by a video-camera which was unknowingly switched on by the murderers during the attack. The Cape Town court was played some clips yesterday as evidence against suspects Eric Vakela, 33 and Mahlomhlo Mosito, 38. They deny two charges of murder, housebreaking, armed robbery and rape. The deeply religious Afrikaner couple had moved to Stilbaai from Ohrigstad in Mpumalanga to start the little shop 'because it was safer there'.
According to the court-records, the suspects had removed a video-camera from its bag so that they can pack stolen items into the pack. As they took out the camera, they switched it on and a video-recording was made on Wednesday 13 October 2010 at 01:26 when the couple were attacked.
Parts of the discussion between the two men went as follows: '
Mosito: “Take the money. The police will come. They have a shop. You must know that we share. We tied up the woman.”
Vakele: “I agree."
Mosito: “The coins are going to make us suspect. The woman looked at me damn it'.
Vakele: “The woman even said to you; 'I am sorry'. We killed them."
Mosito: “What? It's not us who killed them. They have the money as if they own a shop'. link
Background: the Afrikaner smallholders Jan and Elizabeth Smitwere tortured to death in ‘safe’ Stilbaai, SC; the Boer-genocide: then and now: farming is not for sissies says actor in Afrikaans farming-movie; ANC-regime is rotten to its core;
“The deeply-religious couple had moved from Lydenburg to find peace at Stilbaai, where they could be safe…’
15 Oct 2010 04:45 An Afrikaner couple, Jan and Elizabeth Smit, were found tortured to death – the wife was impaled on a garden fork – on their farm near Jongensfontein outside the retirement town of Stilbaai in the Southern Cape.
A family friend found the bodies of 62-year-old Jan Smit and his 57-year-old wife Elizabeth on Thursday. The traumatised friend spotted the woman's body impaled on a garden fork when she peered through their lounge window. Police spokespman Malcom Pojie said both bodies also were “heavily bruised and bound with rope”. A man has been questioned.
"As the investigation unfolded, they took a man in for questioning late last night. He is from Riversdale and is currently being question by the organised crime investigation unit," he added. Autopsies are set to be carried out on the couple to determine the exact cause of death: this might take a while: there is a severe shortage of forensic-experts in SA.
The couple used to own a coffee shop in Stilbaai and had moved to the ‘peaceful area’ from Lydenburg in Mpumalanga a number of years ago. Dominee Willie Gouws of the NG congregation in Stilbaai said he had known the man and woman well.
"They weren't registered members of the NG Church but they were very religious people." Another Stilbaai resident, Philip Claasen, said the people of the town were shocked. "It is totally unheard-of in Stilbaai. And totally unacceptable. Keep in mind that 60% of the residents of Stilbaai are older than 60. It is a retirement town and the residents here are very exposed."There has definitely been an increase in crime recently. There are several elderly residents who live on smallholdings here," said Claassen. He described the deceased as good, friendly people.
Rozanne Meyer writes that many hundreds of Afrikaners made emotional tributes on Sunday October 10 2010 to the many tens-of-thousands of their forebears who died for their freedom and for justice 111 years ago. The organisation was arranged by Solidarity Helping Hand ‘s charity organisation and the Heritage Foundation of Centurion.
“In 1902, some 23,000 Boer children and 4,000 Boer women had lost their lives during the British government’s scorched-earth campaign against the independent Boer nation – dying miserable deaths in the inhuman Boer concentration camps which the British had erected across southern Africa after burning down their farms and marching off the women and children at gunpoint... At the outset of the Second Freedom War against the British in 1899, the total Boer-population was about 322,000. Nearly one out of every 10 Afrikaners died in these British tented hellcamps within just a few months. Click here for pictures
Rozanne Meyer writes: “Now we are faced with the same horror once again: there are more than 800,000 unemployed, homeless Afrikaners living in dismal squatter camps and slowly starving to death because they are denied all access to the job-market and even denied food-aid from the ANC-regime; nearly 4,000 Afrikaner farmers have been murdered – and more than 30,000 Afrikaner-whites have died in violence in the cities in the ‘New South Africa’ under the ANC-regime. There are 3-million Afrikaners today. Per capita of the entire population, Afrikaner whites are being murdered more than any other population group in the country.
South African actor David Rees, who just completed his role as a sheep-farmer in the Afrikaans movie, “Susanna van Biljon, live your dream’.. said ‘farming is not for sissies in South Africa’: they understand that they are actually caring for every South African.’ http://www.landbou.com/boereblogs/susanna-van-biljon-n-lekker-sa-storie
He has been an actor for the past 22 years and is best-known to the general public in South Africa for his role as Nick in the soapie Egoli. He has already made tracks in the streets of Hollywood and Chicago, but wants to stay in South Africa to continue his acting career’ he said.
He said acting the role of Dirk, the sheepfarmer, in movie producer Karl Marx’s latest Afrikaans film, Susanna van Biljon, leef jou droom. made him realise ‘that farmers are cultured and stylish.” http://www.landbou.com/multimedia/videos/susanna-van-biljon-voorprent
Referring to the huge number of Afrikaner farmers being murdered on their homesteads under the ANC-regime, he could not understand ‘why the government does not look after its farmers better. They are supposed to take care of all South Africans,’ he said. “Farmers often themselves were raised on farms and they have a close affinity and knowledge of the production- and marketing side of the business. The government should create a cooperative with farmers because it will be to everybody’s advantage,’ he said.
Susanna van Biljon
David says the movie was filmed on various farms in the Uniondale region – but he himself also was raised on a smallholding in the Honeydew/Muldersdrift region, and his dad planted maize and had some cattle. “I had to help hold the animals during slaughter, and so he developed a natural knack which he was able to apply in his role, he said.
He had a message for those farmers who feel hopeless and powerless in their present dire situation: “I have as an actor always remembered my dreams, and many people dream of owning a farm and to farm. It’s a great privilege.’

Maryna Louw skryf: 2011-10-19 23:23 - JOHANNESBURG. – Die ANC-jeugliga en sy ondersteuners beplan maksimum ontwrigting in Pretoria en Johannesburg met sy massa-optog volgende week.
Hulle sal verkeer ontwrig en by die Uniegebou in Pretoria slaap totdat die regering aan hul eise voldoen, het mnr. Julius Malema, ANC-jeugleier, gister te midde van luide toejuiging in Thembelihle in Lenasia gesê.
Hy het inwoners van die township, waar daar verlede maand gewelddadige diensleweringsbetogings was, op ’n blitsbesoek vir die jeugliga se massa-optog gemobiliseer.Die jeugliga gaan Donderdag by die Beyers Naudé-plein in Johannesburg bymekaarkom en na die Kamer van Mynwese, die JSE en die Uniegebou in Pretoria opruk om die nasionalisering van myne en die herverdeling van die land se rykdom te eis.’n Nagwaak sal Donderdagaand by die Uniegebou gehou word.Hulle dring aan op onder meer gratis onderrig, werk vir die jeug en ekonomiese bevryding.“Ons moet swart mense weer waardigheid gee.“Solank ons in die donker is, sonder water en elektrisiteit moet klaarkom en in plakkershutte woon, is ons nie vry nie,” het Malema, geklee in ’n kleurige Karibiese hemp en Ché Guevara-baret, gesê.“Nie net julle raadslede nie, maar die hele wêreld, selfs Amerika, moet weet van die probleme hier en die omstandighede waarin julle woon.”Hy het gesê die ANC-jeugliga gaan busse na Thembelihle stuur om die inwoners na die optog aan te ry.Die optog gaan nie in agterstraatjies plaasvind nie, maar op groot paaie soos die N1 sodat die verkeer ontwrig kan word en almal van die optog bewus kan wees, het Malema gesê.Intussen het die National Union of Metalworkers (Numsa) gister sy steun toegesê aan die jeugliga se veldtog om ekonomiese bevryding.Mnr. Castro Ngobese, nasionale woordvoerder, het gesê Numsa ondersteun die jeugliga se massa-optog heelhartig.Volksblad http://www.volksblad.com
