[Disclosure: This is NOT an April Fool’s joke and sources are all from 31 March, 2012]

It is now clearer than ever that there are no bounds when it comes to Julius Malema and his ability to surprise. I made sure I checked my sources and the dates of the reports to ensure I wasn’t the victim of an April Fools joke – when a friend SMSd me about Malema’s new white protégé (one Jonathan Ovadia), who he has unveiled in an attempt to prove he is not racist against whites. I was busy digesting this awesome development, when it occured to me that Julius had, at the same event, labeled Zuma and the ANC a ‘dictatorship.’ He really and truly knows no bounds, young Julius.
This, from the Mail&Guardian:
Malema told a crowd of more than a thousand supporters at the University of the Witwatersrand, to roars of approval.
“It is under President Zuma that we have seen a critical voice of the voiceless being suppressed … We have seen under President Zuma democracy being replaced with dictatorship. We have seen an intolerance, people becoming impatient with the youth. We have seen under President Zuma people who do not appreciate new opinions. They actually suppress new ideas and new ideas, I don’t know, maybe they serve as a threat to the current leadership of the ANC.”
He went on to introduce his apprentice/understudy/protégé:
But despite the vitriol directed at Zuma, it was other issues that showed a new, polished and theatrical side of Malema as an orator. He brought out a young white protégé he said he was mentoring in radical politics as proof that he had nothing against white people — while still demanding that white people hand over stolen land without compensation.
Absolutely brilliant! That Newsmaker of the year award has really pushed him to the next level.
Julius has obviously realised that we are getting bored of the nationalisation threats and the needs for props has come. And it works brilliantly – you’ve got my attention, Jules. That white kid came totally out of leftfield, and I think it’s going to be great to watch. Thank you and looking forward to the next episode.
Make him dance for us, Julius!
