Malema’s radical talk unsettles business (South Africa. ANC wants to nationalise mines)
Business Day ^ | 6-21-11 | MARIAM ISA

Posted on 06/30/2011 5:35:44 PM PDT by dynachrome

SA’s business community has been rattled by vociferous remarks on nationalisation and land expropriation by Julius Malema, the re-elected president of the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League .

Mr Malema’s calls for more radical measures to address inequality and poverty are being seen as harmful to investment in the country, as they fuel uncertainty over economic policy. There is also deep concern that his aggressive stance against the leadership within the ANC, coupled with his growing influence, will destabilise the country’s leadership.

"There has been a dramatic rise in uncertainty which may or may not translate into risk," said Iraj Abedian, MD of Pan African Investment and Research.

"Investors in the best of times don’t like uncertainty as it reduces their degree of freedom and ease of making decisions, especially long- term decisions that require huge capital to be committed for a long period of time."

Business executives said the most contentious issue was nationalisation, which Mr Malema insists will become ANC policy. He is calling for the nationalisation of both mines and banks in SA.

One of the malema leghumpers replies to the article at the site. Look for violence against whites to increase:

Aghast and vanysen, you both are confused demagoguesand buffonery lumpens. How dare you accuse Malema when he articulates resolutions of the ANCYL Conference? You seem to be confused and lost in translation because of your unguided and barbaric hatred of Malema. Stop fooling yourselves and prepare for the radical revolution of young people in South Africa. We are the Economic Freedom Fighters in our Lifetime! We are the future, no one can stop us! You ignore us, you do so at your own peril! We do not want investment that inpoverish the masses of our people whether be it local or foreign. We do not care about an economic growth that is failing to create jobs and fight poverty and unemployment. Nationalization of mines and banks among other key sectors of the economy are is inevitable! We are not confused by a few elites who masquerade on media forums of this nature as self imposed spokespersons of our downtrodden masses who live in cacophony and quagmire. Watch this space!

Looking good. I had an acquaintance from SA. He owned his own business and was shipping out the max in cash every year that he was allowed to. I believe that it was $10K a year per person. He utilized his entire family for that effort. That was back in 1995 or 6. I lost contact with him and have no idea what became of him, his family or his plan to leave SA.

Its already done, like Obama’s seeds.

The world is going to need bunch of round up!

Stupid south Africans have no idea what rights, freedom, liberty and democracy mean. NO idea.
The monkeys can do some of the actions, and they can parrot some of the words, but like monkeys, the project and its meaning will be lost.

Moodiela Mathobela:

“We do not care about an economic growth that is failing to create jobs and fight poverty and unemployment.”

You’re right, Moodiela. Much better to run whitey out of town and enjoy economic collapse. Maybe you can get Mugabe to loan out his finance minister to you. With your economic genius and his experience, imagine the depths to which South Africa can descend for the downtrodden!
