Malema and Zuma, Back Together Again

Jacon Zuma (L) and Julius Malema

After months of tension, South African president Jacob Zuma and ANCYL leader Julius Malema appeared together at a rally Saturday to celebrate the 66th birthday of the youth league.

Malema took the stage first, targeting political rivals, Helen Zille and Zwelinzima Vavi.

“We have no respect for Helen Zille. Why are we asked to respect a person who built open toilets? Helen Zille is a representative of apartheid,” Malema said of the DA leader and Western Cape Premier. “If Zille had her way, she would declare the Western Cape an independent republic. You have put a cockroach in Cabinet and we need to remove that cockroach by voting the ANC into power.”

Malema then said Vavi “must be put where he belongs,” and “The workers have no interest in whether a young man throws a party or not. They’re working in mines underground in difficult conditions.”

Vavi, who is General-Secretary of COSATU, earlier said he had been “sickened” at news of a lavish birthday party for business tycoon Kenny Kunene that Malema had attended, where sushi was served on scantily-clad women.

“We will never stop partying,” Malema said. “We are young. It is our responsibility. We will never apologize for it.”

Malema also told the audience that Whites still control 80-percent of the country’s economic power.

Zuma came to the stage next, saying that the country needed a media tribunal and called on the audience to return the ANC to power in the Western Cape.

Malema then joined Zuma to sing Umshini Wam, or Get Me My Machine Gun, and the two cut a large birthday cake on stage.

  • Old Showerhead-rapist-arms-scandal-Zuma and Malema "I got an E for my home language at school and an F for Woodwork" are thick as thieves.

    I've said before that Showerhead's constant meetings with Boers in Orania and other minority groups are just a smokescreen. Blow away the crap and you have the same old mud hut mentality which brought South Africa from a country doing the world's first heart transplant to one where raw sewage is flowing down streets in the suburbs, because the corruption and plundering by mud hutters are so rife that the infrastructure is literally falling apart.

    But call Dave Steward from the FW de Klerk foundation and he will tell you what wonderful progress has been made in South Africa.

  • Which one can give the other a hair transplant?

  • Now the term “ laughing hyenas” has true meaning.

  • NELSON MANELA SAID RECONCILIATION IS THE KEY! LOVE YOU NEIGHBOR LIKE U LOVE YOURSELF BUT DONT FORGET THAT AN INGERY TO ONE IS AN INGERY TO ALL WHO SUFFERED UNDER THE PRIMITIVE APARTHEID SYSTEM. Vote for SWAPO vote for Unity Liberty And Freedom for all citizenship so GOD BLESS SWAPO & ANC Party! Nghoshi ya Mbulunganga Shikoko
