I’ve not bothered watching the local South African news on television lately, because to be honest, I’m quite sick of all the depressing news and savagery going on in this country. However, last night when I heard the 7 o’clock news on SABC2 kicking off with the sounds of gunfire and scenes of black-on-black punch-ups in the streets of Malema’s hometown, I couldn’t help but give the ol’ telly my undivided attention.
To be quite honest the whole business of Julius Malema's expulsion bores me to death. However, his reckless arrogance and his noticeable knack of inciting rebellion wherever he happens to journey, had me thinking why this man has not been placed behind bars yet.
If the media reports are truthful and the ANCYL are in the process of finalising a defiance campaign against the ANC, who ‘unfortunately’ happen to be the democratically elected organ of State, then surely their actions amount, at the bare minimum, to the crime of SEDITION?!?
What then is the difference between the security threat posed by the ANCYL gangsters and the security threat posed by the Boeremag members who were arrested during 2002, and who are still awaiting trail?
(Readers who are not familiar with members of the Boeremag’s earlier threat to South Africa’s internal security may find the online detailed report by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), compiled by Martin Schönteich and Henri Boshoff, most informative.)
If the shooting that took place yesterday in Malema’s hometown, Seshego, was carried out by the so-called “White Right” you can be sure they’d all be arrested by now, their firearms confiscated, and their homes ransacked. Yet, despite the fact that some people were injured last night and that the scene was well documented by various reporters, the police have 'no idea' who fired the shots.
As I’ve stated before... I have a very bad feeling about the long-term outcome of the Malema dilemma. Besides the flagrant hypocrisy at play here, the Marxist-Communists are up to something else! Only time will reveal what exactly this “something” entails. In the meantime we normal law-abiding folk have no option but to stay put inside our gated communities, and hope these hooligans never learn to shoot straight.
ANCYL TALKS WAR

Supporters of expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema - in an outright show of anger - are finalising a defiance campaign against the ANC.

They have gone so far as threatening to "take up arms" to overturn the ANC's decision to expel him.
Barely 24 hours after Malema was given the boot for bringing the ANC into disrepute and sowing divisions within its ranks, thousands of his supporters are gathering against the mother body in a full show of force... Click here for the full news report.
