We’ve seen many sides to Julius Malema over the years – he’s a firebrand in the political sphere and a family man in his personal life. But Juju showed he could still kick it with the lads this weekend after he enjoyed all the pleasures the Durban July event had to offer.
The EFF leader kicked back with dozens of drunken revellers and partied long into the early hours of the morning. But his advice to fellow party guests may have just stolen the show – and put a few investigative journalists on high alert to carry out another “trash run”…
What “sex advice” did Julius Malema give?
While on the mic alongside an MC for the evening, Julius Malema kept things… light, shall we say? There was no political lecture or trademark rally, and the 39-year-old was most definitely off the clock at this hour.
He encouraged the partygoers to “get down to business”. Okay, we’ll stop with the euphemisms now: Malema told the crowd that it was time to “go and have sex”, before ribbing those who had not yet gone to their rooms. Speaking in Northern Sotho (otherwise known as Sepedi, or just Pedi), he basically told them it was time to get EFF-ing…
“Go to your rooms and have sex, take your booze with you. Your women are waiting for you, stop sleeping here. You [are] scared of women, you are all packed up here!”
The love doctor?
Needless to say, the throwaway comments raised a few chuckles. But they were also caught on camera. After the footage was uploaded on Monday, the clip has enjoyed viral status. Julius Malema declined to comment.
There was definitely a thinly-veiled dig towards Marianne Thamm in there, too. The reporter caused a storm last Wednesday when her “dumpster-diving” expose, which literally picked through the trash of EFF members staying in Camps Bay during June’s SONA. It divided South Africans in their droves.
Check the bins
H&M receipts, expensive booze and several flight tickets were dug out of the dustbins – on the pretence that the private lives of the red berets’ high-flyers clashes with their socialist values. Naturally, the EFF were irked by the entire incident, and strongly denounced the piece – which also felt the need to detail how many used condoms were found.
For the sake of Julius Malema’s personal liability, we can only hope that condoms were used again this weekend!
