Julius Malema: The Monk who bought his Ferrari by Lesego Setou

I used to think taxi drivers can get one mad, until Jacob Zuma became President and Julius Malema started talking to the respectable Thabo Mbeki like he is talking to a man who is stealing his girlfriend. I have respect for Jacob Zuma as a person but I don’t respect him as a leader but it’s not JZ I want to tackle today its Juju.

Julius Malema is a disrespectful, emotionally unintelligent man with an ego the size of Asia and amnesia the size Jupiter. I really at times think I missed my calling because I really would have done a master’s thesis on the psychology of someone who votes for the ANC in the 21st century and a doctorate on the psychology of someone who votes for a party like the EFF.

I have been observing the barbaric behaviour displayed by EFF in many forms and in my mind, thought, if the EFF are saying they are representing the so called blue collar workers, wearing overalls as a way of identifying with this category which for me is demeaning in its own right, does EFF think blue collar workers are barbaric. For me wearing overalls to identify with me is as demeaning as the time Tokyo Sexwale made a publicity stunt by sleeping in a shack as a way to get a feel for the situation, really, like he grew up in Houghton or as rotten as having a black maid and thinking you care for black people, it’s a twisted condescending way of identifying with people.

These barbaric acts by EFF have sure got me hot under the collar but I seem not to be able to get over Julius saying pay back the money. When I listened to him say this, I thought he is either on a serious concoction of nyaope and cocaine or he has a type A chronic amnesia. I mean Julius stole everything from Limpopo, the Province from which he originates, what he did in Limpopo is as good as stealing from your relatives; and now he has the strength and guts to say JZ must pay back the money.

Can the lid of a pot go around calling the  pot black, I said. Julius and Jacob should both make payments arrangements to pay back our money, they are both corrupt, with no integrity and none honestly qualifies to talk bad about another. And while we are on the Julius Malema subject why does he only feel the need to wear overalls in parliament, if he is a serious overall ambassador he should wear overalls all the time and give his designer clothes to charity.

It is indeed a sad day in politics and truly a looming recession in leadership when people start thinking of EFF as party of choice and Julius Malema as leader respectively. I don’t know how South Africans think, we vote for a corrupt President and expect a corruption free government, now we have elected a barbaric embezzler and get surprised when people act barbaric when they protest.

I will never be swayed by anything Julius says, authenticity is key for any leader and Julius’s words and actions are in a serious misalignment.
