Mpumalanga residents must demand that President Jacob Zuma make good on his promise to build a university in Nelspruit, ANC Youth League president Julius Malema said at the weekend.

He told a gathering in Bushbuckridge,in Mpumalanga, that African National Congress leaders had to be held to their commitments, The Times newspaper reported on Monday.

"Anybody who promised you the university and never acted must never be a friend of the people of Mpumalanga because he promised you lies. He only wanted votes," Malema reportedly said.

"And now 2014 is coming and we'll be having another round of elections and there is no university," he said.
In his state of the nation address, Zuma said R300 million would be allocated to build universities in Mpumalanga and the Northern Cape.

Malema also told the crowd to invade Nelspruit and demand that the university be built.

Referring to his possible suspension, Malema said former president Nelson Mandela and his generation had also been regarded as disrespectful.

"They were impatient and wanted change now... Even if some of us can be expelled from the organisation, do not be afraid," he said.

So the hooligans vandalizing all the other universities in the last few months isn't enough? Malema is initiating mini civil wars and he should rot in jail for the rest of his life and no one should post anything he says on the internet, nor should it be on the news.

Sure Juju goes about things in a unorthodox manner and raises questions only when it suites his own agenda but a promise is a promise. We want that university

In some respects it could be said that Mal-ema is instigating mutiny.

And all this while his political life line in the party is being decided on. :rolleyes:
