Julius Malema – genesis of a racial war
African National Congress's Youth League (ANCYL) president, Julius Malema

FOR all practical purposes, Julius Malema, the President of the ANC Youth League is now a force to reckon with.

No amount of vilification or factual truth can stop him. He is now a machine, akin to an avalanche, which wipes out everything in its path, or a ravaging inferno sweeping across Southern Africa.

Malema has mastered the art of persuasion and his extremist demagoguery appeals to the youth, the poor and the downtrodden.

In South Africa, the ANC slogan Amandhla Ngawethu (Power is Ours) means nothing because of the reality on the ground where abject poverty and joblessness are the order of the day.

Malema’s radicalism is music in the ears of unemployed youths who view the affluence among whites as a negation of their revolutionary ideals.

Yet Malema is only whipping up racial tensions in order to ascend into the presidential seat.

Malema received his final initiation into the world of radicals when he visited Zimbabwe recently and the grandmaster of Zimbabwean politics anointed him.

Malema has already joined the likes of Professor Arthur Mutambara, who use every occasion to sing praises of President Robert Mugabe.

South African President Jacob Zuma, who trounced Thabo Mbeki, then President of the ANC, at the historic Polokwane Congress, used the likes of Julius Malema to drum up support and seized leadership of Africa’s oldest party.

The same congress saw the rise and rise of Julius Malema. Now it is pay back time. Malema wants the crown for himself and he has garnered sufficient influence and power to challenge Zuma.

The loose cannon and motor-mouth Malema even went further to label the MDC as a “Micky Mouse” party and vowed to follow Zimbabwe’s land reform and indigenization models.

The thinly-veiled rebuke of Malema by Zuma and other ANC leaders was drowned by the prevailing winds of change where Malema is widely popular.

Malema is now an unstoppable machine, which is like a smoldering volcano ready to erupt and engulf the whole of Southern Africa.

The murder of Eugene Terre’Blanche, a white supremacist and leader of the Afrikaner Weestandsbeweging (Afrikaner Resistance Movement) or AWB, at Ventersdorp (110km North-West of Johannesburg) is bringing racial tensions in South Africa to a climax.

The AWB claim Terre’Blanche was slain because of Julius Malema’s radical statements and defiance of a High Court order to stop chanting the controversial song Dubuli bunu (Shoot the Boer).

Remember all this is happening in South Africa, the Rainbow Nation of Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, both of whom have frozen their tongues as Malema’s veldfire rages on.

Only nostalgic memories of Nelson Mandela’s dream of racial tolerance and free society remain.

The following famous quote from Mandela calls to mind: “During my lifetime, I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to see it realized. But it is also an ideal for which I am prepared to die”

Whither Nelson Mandela! Sorry Madiba, the lightning racial war (blitzkrieg) is imminent. Battle lines have been drawn.

Soon after the FIFA World Cup 2010, it will escalate into a full scale war and even spill beyond the borders of South Africa.

For the militant Boers, history shows their ancestors humiliated the ever confident British at Majuba during the first Anglo-Boer War (1880 1881) when Boer commando units trounced the British hands down.

However, during the Second Boer War (1899 – 1902) the Boers were humiliated by the British, whose infamous “scotched earth” policy and concentration camps resulted in bloodshed never seen before.

Those ancient Boer Wars will look like pick nicks compared to the bloodbath as a result of a racial war of attrition that will see Malema victorious.

The 29 -year old Julius Malema seems determined to grab Zuma’s throne by any means. If Malema shoved Mbeki out of the way, surely he can do the same to Zuma. Power is an aphrodisiac!

Malema’s recent visit to Zimbabwe is being referred to as a State Visit among Zanu-PF Youths.

A short and sharp war against the whites will provide the impetus to make Malema’s dream come true.
