Where does all this money come from??
Julius Malema insists that he earns a little over R20 000 each month… so how, I ask with tears in my eyes, does the man afford a R78 000 holiday – which, by the way, he’s alleged to have paid in cash?
According to News24, a short while before his re-election as ANC Youth League president, he and a few friends took a little trip to a place next to theKrugerNational Parkand stayed in a luxury hotel called Royal Malewane. This five-star graded hotel is quoted to have a fee of around R11 000.
While Malema and his spokesman, Floyd Shivambu, deny the whole event, five sources confirm that this really happened, three of whom can attest that the deal was paid for in CASH. That’s a whole lot of SA Mint that went around there. What’s more, Malema seems to market himself as a “champion of the poor” – I wonder how many meals he could have bought for his youth league where approximately 20% (yes you read that right) young members of the youth go to bed hungry each night. Maybe the “champion” could go to sleep in his own bed and feed some of the starving children.
The funny thing about this whole situation is the level of denial that comes from the Youth League. Our friend Floyd took to swearing at a Journalist from Media24. see transcripts below:
* JD – Journalist
* FS – Floyd Shivambu
JD: So, why did you put the phone down?
JD: Why did you put the phone down?
FS: Hey man. You are doing a wild goose chase. I say that if you want to go ahead and write, go ahead and write because he won’t speak to you. It never happened, okay? He [Malema] doesn’t want to talk to you.
JD: Why will you not let me speak to Malema?
FS: I said he doesn’t want to. Why must he speak to you? He has no obligation to speak to you.
JD: Because he is a politician.
FS: Yes, but I said no. You cannot force people to speak to you.
JD: I don’t understand?
FS: He will not speak to you. You cannot force someone to speak to you if they do not want to speak to you. He does not want to speak to you. I have just spoken to him.
JD: How do you know he doesn’t want to speak to me?
FS: Because I just spoke to him now.
JD: How do you mean you have just spoken with him? I don’t understand.
FS: Fuck you.
JD: Say again?
FS: I said: “Fuck you”
JD: Are you swearing at me?
JD: Why are you doing that?
FS: What is your problem?
JD: I have no problem.
FS: Fuck you. Fuck off, ok.
JD: Oh, so you now said it for the fourth time?
JD: Can you please give me a contact number for Julius Malema?
FS: I don’t want.
JD. Ok. Thank-you. Goodbye.
Why deny it??
Let’s see what they get up to next. Never a dull moment where ANCYL and Mr Malema are concerned…
