The idiot we all love to hate, Malema, is back at it again. He just has to give his two cents worth to the current issue of the media tribunal which will soon come into effect in ZA. What this poor retard does not understand of course, is that the media is in fact not "above the law"...South Africa has a long standing judicial system in place, and for any party that has a grievance, there is ample recourse to the Courts to sue for defamation or damages. Why do you need a media tribunal?
Another thing this retard cannot understand is that a free media is an insurance policy for any healthy democracy and you stifle it at your peril. We easily dismiss Malema's ham fisted style and say he is a nobody in the political atmosphere of South Africa right now, but this rabid black racist will no doubt be moving up the ranks in the next few years...
The proposed Media Tribunal wanted by the ANC will not be a debate because it is a Polokwane resolution, ANC Youth League President Julius Malema said on Saturday.
"We have already decided. We want Parliament to appoint a tribunal, make it law."
Malema said the media must be regulated because "they think they are untouchable."
The ANCYL president was addressing some 500 delegates at the Free State ANCYL conference in Bloemfontein.
Malema said the Press Ombudsman cannot be a player and referee at the same time.
"These people are dangerous," he told the delegates. He said: "They write gossip and present it as facts."
Malema said the media have put him and his family's lives in danger after the death of AWB leader Eugene Terreblanche by suggesting in questions to the opposition that "Malema's songs had contributed" to the murder incident.
He said the media "on a rumour" also nearly destroyed the political life of ANC treasurer general Mathews Phosa.
Referring to the Free State youth league leadership elections at the conference, Malema urge the members to "respect" the decision of the conference.
He said anybody who disrupts any further youth league conferences would be expelled from the ANC.
"You win your battles at conference not in the newspapers. The ANCYL is not run by editors."
The youth leader urged nominated leaders who fail to make it at conferences to respect the decision of the organisation even when it "takes an unfair decision".
Malema also urged the country's Magistrate's and Judge's to discourage political battles in court.
"Send party's back to their organisations to work it out," he said.
Lately various court cases have been brought against the ANCYL in leadership struggles.
A court order prevented the league's congress in the Eastern Cape.
Limpopo provincial chairman Lehlogonolo Masoga also went to court to force the ANCYL to drop disciplinary action against him. - Sapa
