Malema ridicules Zuma as 'shower man'

Johannesburg - Suspended ANC Youth League president Julius Malema joined in songs that ridiculed President Jacob Zuma at the ANC's Limpopo conference - labelling him the "shower man" in reference to his 2006 rape trial, according to the Sunday Times.

Supporters of Malema ally, premier Cassel Mathale, fighting to retain his position as the party's provincial chairman, sang "showara wa re sokodisa" (the shower man is giving us a hard time).

Malema sat on stage and "fervently joined in the singing, holding his hand over his head to symbolise a shower head" the newspaper reported.

The song was in reference to Zuma's 2006 rape trial in which he told the Johannesburg high court that he had a shower after having unprotected sex with his HIV-positive accuser. Zuma was found not guilty.

The shower image was created by cartoonist Zapiro who is being sued by Zuma for R5m after he depicted Zuma with a shower growing out of his head during and after the trial.

Malema is currently appealing a five-year suspension from the youth league after he was found to have brought the party into disrepute.

Um...was he not the man that said he would "mobilise" the ANCYL to stand and defend their PRESIDENT and was he not the one that said the woman remained over night with Zuma so, she must have enjoyed a complete 180...Julius is just a spoilt brat that is burning his bridges as he goes along....and intelligence is DEFINITELY NOT his strong point...being an idiot is....

LOL. Where are our staunch ANC supporters, the one's that say "Don't call him showerhead, he is your president"? Good heavens Julius, you really don't know when to stop, do you?

A party that is divided within itself. How much longer will they be the ruling party.

Malema is a joke. Zuma was his man, claiming that he would "kill for Zuma" and now because Zuma is trying to reign him in, Zuma is the enemy. The ANC is to blame for this mess, Malema was their tool in ousting Mbeki. They created this monster and now are struggling to control him. I mean, isn't he meant to be suspended. Yet he continues to defy them and shows up at ANC rallies. As soon as the president doesn't tow the line, he must be kicked out. Wouldn't be surprised if Zuma gets recalled before finishing his term. Malema was given far too much power and now he can do whatever, whenever with no consequences. He has no respect for anyone. I shudder to think where South Africa will end up with Malema as president.

Crazy that in the centre of South African politics is a shower head, it is laughable, but is it funny? The actions of many ANC members are just totally out of line and it is furthering a child like disobedience. Tasteless and smacking of anarchy. It serves to allow the gat way for hoodlums to continue to rule the corridors of government by people bent on pillaging South Africa into bankruptcy. The issue here is the influence that our most Northern province has via the Mugabe instutute, and the influx of cross border tribal connections begin to filter unknowingly into South African politics. Let South Africa be wary of the anarchy growing in our Limpopo province and best we nip it in the bud. If Malema was suspended why was he there, should his supporters not also be suspended. Seems as if the ANC is out of control, thanks to Malema, they have become a joke, all good for the opposition though.
