I was watching the news and they did a translation on what Julius Malema was saying when he addressed the the miners.
He was saying that the GOVERNMENT was pigs and that it eats it's own people.
I was shocked at how he was allowed and still allowed to say and act in such terrorism against our government and president and also our people.
I always believed it was permuted to speak out against our government, our leaders.
It got me going back and googling something bizarre, which of course i would get a result - thanks to my internet guru GOOGLE.

We as South African's have all fought so hard for democracy - freedom of speech and to have one man namely JuJu who clearly needs some training on diversity an change and maybe as a bonus to throw in some life skills and people management training.
It would be great for him to experience the life of our people. The hard work gone into agriculture and farming, the hardhip and hardwork of the miners. He should NOT be allowed to exploit people and abuse the media to his advantage for political brownie points.
Here we making waves on better education and lower inflation.
All he is interested in, is making sure he has the power to control people and create chaos along the way.
I am surprised he has not jumped on the Woolworths BandWagon just for a joy ride.
No-one should be a puppet. So much has happend in history marking this day. We should take today and everyday as a very important one and make our own history, our own change. Stop the racial and political power. Stop the Hurt! Stop the Hate!
