Book Excerpt: An Inconvenient Youth: Julius Malema and the ‘New’ ANC by Fiona Forde

an inconvenient youth forde fiona

Reading Fiona Forde's political biography of Malema, it is hard to believe he has any consistent political perspective. And I do mean all of them. This inconclusive historical analysis leaves a void, which Forde fills with amateur shrinkery. This also applies to the text and photo originals attained from other sources for which the authors have secured the right to reproduce any material that has already been published or copyrighted elsewhere. If so, Forde would have done well to explain why, and why, despite this, these ideas have such a large uptake.

Fiona Forde “Unmuddles Malema” in An Inconvenient Youth

an inconvenient youth forde fiona

Do I care about Julius Malema? The danger of this is it can potentially result in him co-opting movements of struggle from below. I don't think politicians are different anywhere in the world.

Both are full of uneducated narcissists. Refusing delivery If you refuse to accept delivery of all or part of your order where the products or packaging do not appear to be damaged or defective you will be responsible for the postage charges. More than a ringleader, a rabble-rouser and a rebel who knows no bounds, Julius Malema is a new kind of cadre in South African political life, a radical product of 100 years of struggle politics. Probably the strongest part of Fiona Forde's political biography is her willingness to expose the corruption of Julius Malema, his economic ties to the bourgeoisie and South African capital, and his relentless ability to politically manoeuvre. This does not stop her confronting him with the series of kickbacks and freebies her sources agree companies gave Malema for Limpopo tenders. Julius Malema is an astute opportunist.

YPIA Fiona Forde Lecture on Julius Malema, the ANC and South Africa, 22 Feb 2012

an inconvenient youth forde fiona

As things stand, we will have to wait a while longer for a book which makes sense of the Malema phenomenon. Above all, it is fair to Malema in noting the personal strengths that made his rise so meteoric and controversial. They are self-indulgent, calculating creatures. Far from the Che Guevarian socialist radical Malema would like us to believe him to be, what Forde uncovers is an opportunist businessman who has mastered the art of using his access to political power to enrich himself and those close to him.

It is as though Forde had forgotten that Malema is, as well as a sinner, a politician.

I am grateful they are getting what they deserve. Youth politics passed him by entirely. There is definite context that will produce an historical monster and Forde's account tells us exactly why, where and how this man has emerged, what his life experiences and political mentors and influences were and why he has been so massively influential. Domestic Standard delivery takes approximately 2-5 business days from dispatch, while an International Standard delivery takes 5-14 business days from dispatch. She was born in Galway, Ireland.

Do I care about Julius Malema? So what caused the two to turn on each other? The delivery times and shipping prices vary depending on the retailer's location, the destination country and the selected delivery method. In both instances, please notify as soon as possible. Do I care about any of the other politicians in the book? Certain products purchased at Fruugo cannot be returned. Although it is true that he has twisted events to suit and shape himself, that his life and behaviour is one long tale of manipulation and demagoguery, but almost everything this man does or has done is in some way rooted in struggle history and populist sentiment. Do I care about any of the other politicians in the book? That is not, however, to say this is not a useful and interesting book. Also, authors are not charged for having their papers published in the journal. Malema has come to represent the radical edge of that tension, enabling him to gain some vocal hegemony over the wider struggles taking place in South Africa.

Review

Providing you are returning all the products from a specific retailer, we will refund the standard shipping costs you paid for the original delivery. Our customer care will send you specific instructions on how to ship the return package s to the retailer s. As leader of the Youth League he called for the renationalisation of mines and the seizure of white-owned farms. Whether you like him or not, it is no secret that Julius Malema is the most outspoken political leader in South Africa. It is an obvious indictment of the ruling party that it allowed a political opportunist to commit such mischief for so long and at such cost to itself and the country. A year later he ran again for the position of president of Cosas. Whether you love him or loathe him, he is undeniably one of the most controversial politicians of our time and yet he remains an enigma to most.

Review

an inconvenient youth forde fiona

One conclusion from the book that rings true is that Malema, or at least the Malema style and substance of politics in South Africa is not over, that if not himself, than others will tread the same path and that this will lead in directions that have probably only begun. Forde's book started out as an authorised bio but has become something far more interesting and the access granted by Malema himself and his associates--though they may regret that now--tells us much we may not have known about his rise and modus operandi. If the replacement can't be made, or if you wish to cancel the order, you will be refunded in full. That means all content is free and without charges available at journal webpages. Malema is making use of history, and remodelling himself after Mandela and his fight with the Communist Party many years ago - really. Please ensure you retain a proof of postage receipt so in the unlikely event your parcel goes missing, you will have proof you sent it.

Any customs or import duties charged on delivery are solely the responsibility of the customer. Forde analyses the sources of Malema's wealth, exploring his seamless approach to business and politics. Where a retailer has offered to collect the goods, you will be refunded within 14 days of cancelling your contract. Julius Malema has risen to prominence and power with meteoric speed. The sources of his wealth are befogged by speculation and mystery, but his appeal to the massed ranks of the township and village poor of his country is visible for all to see.
