As the public venting of anger over the passing of the Protection Of Information Bill [POIB] by the majority ANC-led Parliament spills over into Day 2, it’s become necessary to spit out some of the bitterness that’s clogged up in our mouths.
And so I pondered the curious case of former poster boy for the ANC, one Julius Malema, freshly expelled from the party for certain indiscretions, and now plotting his vengeance from the sidelines. This bozo who enjoyed telling the world he would die and kill for the President, now finds himself at odds with his former idol, and is screaming blue murder.
He refuses to vacate the position of leader of the ANC Youth League that he’s been fired from, and still goes around acting like he’s in charge. And the ANC bigwigs seem powerless to do anything about it.
Which left me wondering how these same morons intend to silence an entire nation with the POIB, while they are so easily held to ransom by one of their own fallen comrades. Herein lies the secret to defying or defeating this insidious piece of legislation, after all legal and peaceful means fails. I think you all know what I’m getting at, and it does not involve marching like idiots to the Union Buildings.
Incidently, Malema may not have an ANC membership card anymore, but he still has that ace up his sleeve – the race card.
