Make the mines ungovernable - Malema
Malema told Aurora workers to make mines ungovernable until the Boers start to negotiate.
JOHANNESBURG - Former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema on Thursday told Aurora workers to make the mines ungovernable until the Boers start to negotiate properly.
He said miners should receive a monthly salary for R12,500 a month.
The East Rand mine stopped operations after it went into liquidation.
The company was headed President Jacob Zuma's nephew, Khulubuse Zuma, and former president Nelson Mandela's grandson, Zondwa Mandela.
Mineworkers told the controversial politician they were abandoned by mine management.
Malema told Aurora workers to make the mines ungovernable until the whites listen to them.
"We will make these mines ungovernable until the Boers come back to tell us the money workers earn is too little."
He also hit out at the country's current leadership, saying the country was losing confidence in government.
"Nobody is going to rescue you. Never trust what these people are saying."
Malema said contract employees, who usually work when miners go on strike, were being used like toilet paper.
"You are not a human being, you are toilet paper. You are going to be flushed by the Boers. They are using you."
"Boers have hijacked the revolution through the [political] leadership."
