Senekal last week had nothing to do with solutions. It was all about politicians’ testosterone. It was all about politicians’ egos. What useful idea came out of all that heat and noise generated by all those politicians in Senekal last week? There is nothing. Nothing that makes SA a better place. Nothing that leads us to a better understanding of race relations in SA after 1994. Nothing that is a solution to farm murders – many of whose victims are poorly paid, desperate black people – or a solution to the incredibly horrendous murder and crime problem in this country.
I, Julius Malema, apologise to the president of the ANC and the Republic, comrade Jacob Zuma, and to the membership of the ANC and the public in general for the statements and utterances that I made… implying that the ANC Youth League has taken a position against the president of the ANC. I accept that these statements had the effect of undermining the stature of the president of the ANC and of the Republic. It further may have had the effect of undermining the confidence of our people in the leadership of the ANC and of creating serious divisions and breakdown of unity in the organisation. – Apology by Julius Malema after disciplinary hearing.BACK TO TOP
