Dear Jules …

His Excellency, the President
Messier JS Malema, Esq.
c/o ANC Youth League
Luthuli House, Sauer Street
Johannesburg, South Africa

Dear Jules

As you know I attempted, of my own volition, to save your political career at the end of August 2009, with the publication of a electronic booklet, called the Prosperity of Our Potential. Written in just four days, and released on or around the 20th September 2009, this e-book has been widely disseminated.

Without digressing from the thrust of my missive, it is important to note that the e-book, which is now called, Catalysing Opportunity Prosperity & Equality or COPE; makes the case for the various contentious positions of the ANC, and quells the attacks from the media and the opposition on the ANC, Zuma and Malema. In addition, the e-book has been crafted so as to serve as a life-skills reader from JZ to the youth of South Africa, so as to ensure that the e-book has educational value, in and by itself.

I recall that at some point after I had written this e-booklet, that the State President, His Excellency, JG Zuma, made certain comments in the media and in public, whereby he was able to protect you and to affirm your position as a young leader of the ANC, and a person in whom he saw the potential for future leadership of the ANC.

I also recall that immediately thereafter, the media began lambasting you again, on the basis that you seen to be overly protected and that you were making further statements which were misconstrued as being controversial. From then to now, not much has changed, and I have noted the steady decline of your standing in both the media and the ANC.

However, when recent revelations of your alleged role in the Limpopo regime change saga, and of your alleged role in state procurement surfaced, I could not believe it. In fact, having defended both you and the ANCYL in the midst of the Lembede scandal some three years ago, I find myself no longer certain that the ANCYL is being properly and effectively managed.

Indeed, this very week we have the SASCOvians on the streets demanding Free Higher Education, and while I am the first to point out that Free Higher Education was promised by the ANC, ANCYL, YCL and Sasco during the ANC’s campaign for the 2009 elections, it is also important for me to note that it was an ANC minister who declined to implement the election promise as made to the youth of South Africa.

Therefore, while the future leaders of the ANC chase their collective tails, trying to convince the ANC to implement its own policies, you will forgive me for making the observation — that there are moves afoot to overthrow the Malema regime — and that this is proved by three things, being:

  • Your multiple appearances on television recently to answer questions relating to the allegations against you, the fact that they are not protecting you from this should terrify you completely.
  • Your deployment of an attorney to remedy the situation thereafter
  • This article as it appeared in today’s newspaper.

In respect of this all I can suggest is that you choose one issue to campaign upon, such that, that issue (EDUCATION) must become the sole campaigning platform for Julius Malema, and should you need any help with this, please feel free to contact durbanfretus.com for more information.

Alternatively, Jules, you can continue upon your determined trajectory, and come next year’s elective conference, your political career will have you moving sideways, in terms of real power, rather than forward in policy and upward in power; as intended.

Kind regards and best wishes

Cde Avish

    ..and after that epic Creative Writing effort, your point is..?

  • avishkar

    if u cant figure that out for yourself… then on what basis do u call yourself one of us spinyangas?

    As I have said are we all really surprized by Jule’s latest misdemeanour? Did we really expect any better?

  • MLH

    Well, that type of tripe got Zuma to where he is. What hope is there that Malema won’t end up there too? As the ANC has learnt to its cost, when you breed sedition, it isn’t easy to stop it when it suits you (service delivery protests, public service strikes, etc.). Sadly, these brilliant students can only seem to get their heads around one thing at a time and that’s the word ‘free’. So, he planted the seed, it’s his turn to follow up. But he won’t, will he?

    @spindoctor
    The points are very clear but I won’t patronise you.Suffice to say none are so blind as those who won’t see not can’t see.I am really concerned about Malema’s claim about “the hit list” that SARS have apparently drawn up. Did Julius have to wait until he got into hot water before he made this list public. This confirms that Julius ” collects dirt on everyone and then uses it to hit out against his enemies.SA has proved fertile for this type of politics as people are racist, corrupt,deeply involved in criminal activities or are conspiring to unseat some political figure. So there is really no energy directed towards service
    delivery- small wonder then that the people are taking to the streets.

    And the President wants to investigate the list while Malemas bridges are falling all around him.

    I think that you are partly to blame -Spindoctor.

    One of the first requirements of getting government tenders is that the tenderer must have a tax reference number and must present a certificate from SARS stating that no taxes are outstanding. Malema’s companies provided neither so it is clear that the award was both illegal and fraudulant. The person who awarded the tender should be treied and sent to jail along with the co-cospirators, Malema and crew. I presume that this way of getting tenders is common where an ANC membership card and kick backs replace all the usual requirements

  • Paul Young

    When is someone going to inform the public of what the ANCYL has achieved since Malema’s election. What exactly are they supposed to do, what exactly have they done, and how are their achievements measured? Sure, Malema has mouthed off for all sorts of things, nationalisation of various industries, free education etc, but what have they achieved in accordance with their mandate. Like Zuma, all mouth, no action, do as I say and not as I do.
    Cde Avish, I also believe that the excellent speech writers Zuma had before and shortly after the ANC elections last year, and the general elections in April have been recalled by Luthuli House. This was most evident by that pathetic state of the nation address. There is much ado behind the scenes and something has to give soon.

    Funny Avish, that yes I am not convinced about Malema’s answers but when are you going to be vicious against Engineering,Civil and Mining Companies in South Africa same as you are doing now with JZ and Malema? Where is your patriotism?
    1. Our Steel went up when we needed it most. Our steel was 1000 cheaper when we buy it from overseas than local.
    2. Cement prices same were and still are very high
    3. Mining houses are destroying our environment and not meeting their Social Agreements ito their own Charter. Children are getting sick from Toxic exposures and are born with birth defects etc.

    When are you taking these things up as well?

    It will not help talking just Politics. Help the society too.

  • avishkar

    in respect of the mining, construction and steel/metal companies… we as the ancyl, are proposing to the alliance that we begin to solve this problem… by nationalising… everything :-)

    for varsity i am reading fanon’s wretched of the earth (the pitfalls of national consciousness)… i can now see why thabo mbeki is an intellectual midget who has plagiarised fanon’s logic to give us BBBEE and sector charters and all the other “mbekinomics” which were vaunted as being so sophisticated… “these former colonisers can’t handle the fact that we black people are running a diversified, sophisticated economy…”

    what a twit…
