A LARGE slice of South Africa lives in a kind of no-man’s land and this has had a large role in shaping our politics. Several million South Africans are upwardly mobile and have thus left the world of their parents. But they have not arrived in the middle class either.
JULIUS Malema has denied stealing from South Africans, saying there are no criminals in his family.
ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa, who is struggling to rid himself of the corporate suits in exchange for political boxing gloves, has predictably sparked controversy with his “boer” remark.
I CONFESS that in 2008 when Julius Malema became the ANC Youth League president, I renounced my stance as an active youth league member, became passive, then decided to join the ANC itself.
WHAT is it that makes the young generation of politicians prone to shady dealings and corrupt activities?
JULIUS Malema has been assigned a babysitter to ensure he doesn’t bring his party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), into disrepute.
IT’S maddening. First, wherever I went, I was asked what young Julius was really like in person. That was when he was slight.
Controversial businessman Kenny Kunene has not resigned from the Economic Freedom Fighters, the party said on Wednesday.
