Congress's Youth League (ANCYL) president, Julius
FOR all practical purposes, Julius
Malema, the President of the ANC Youth League is now a force to reckon
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.

Zimbabwe recently and the grandmaster of Zimbabwean politics anointed
Malema has already joined the likes of Professor Arthur Mutambara,
who use every occasion to sing praises of President Robert Mugabe.
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.
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
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
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”
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
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.
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!

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