“Ruperts captured Pravin” Malema’s flip-flop on Gordhan


By Pinky Khoabane

It wasn’t long ago that EFF’s Julius Malema was reportedly on Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan’s side in the spat between the minister and the Hakws. Just a couple of weeks ago, he said Gordhan had nothing to fear as he was not guilty.

At the time, he accused President Jacob Zuma of trying all means possible to get his hands on the Treasury. “But he will not get hold of it because if he tries anything stupid, this economy will collapse,” he said.

In the last week, UnCensored and BlackOpinion exposed the extent to which Treasury was captured by white capitalists and the numerous companies in which the finance minister held a stake.

In a series of columns, I warned about the seriousness of the threats made by former finance minister and now employee of the Rothchild banking group that the economy would collapse if Gordhan was arrested. A day or so later, Futuregrowth, a subsidiary of Old Mutual on whose board Manuel sits, pulled the plug on State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) declaring that it would no longer fund them. The travesty we exposed, was that Old Mutual and many other financial institutions are funded by the Public Investment Corporation (PIC) through Treasury.

A week is a long time in politics and a fortnight even longer.

Malema has definitely changed his tune:

Malema Quotes on Gordhan

 “Pravin has shares in all the companies you can think of…

“We don’t speak about how the Ruperts and they have captured Pravin and white monopoly capital has captured the Treasury.

On Manuel and another former finance minister, Nhlanhla Nene

“They’re all captured, they all working for white capital,”

“When you take over that office, you will want to check who the Ruperts want. If Rupert doesn’t want, then you cant appoint”.

“He thinks he’s the most powerful man. He is untouchable. If you touch him the markets will react”.

  2. I would like to stray a bit from the topic at hand… Pinky Khoabane (Ms), you are the brave & inspiring woman in our lifetime. Very inspiring & non-biased journalist I ever heard of!!!

    From K. M. (Durban, KZN, South Africa)

  3. Daily the plot thickens, as the worms come out of the woodwork. The Elite(Ruperts and Oppenheimers), just cannot get their agenda to take off. Every campaign was a miserable failure. From the “Zuma must Fall” to destroying Eskom. The gap left by Futuregrowth will now be filled by BRICS Bank. What a noble idea.(Eggs on the faces of Futuregrowth/Manuel/Pravin #Occupyluthulihouse” back-fired on White Monopoly Capital. The Ideas espoused by BLF and Others, are starting to make sense, and Malema , shrewd politician that he is, wants to “recapture”(pun intended) the spotlight! Too late, he sold out the masses, by forming a coalition with DA(No different from ANC liberal wing). Keep up the good work, Uncensored, we behind you, with your brilliant, incisive articles!!
