Whether you love him or hate him though, there's no denying that his speeches are charismatic and powerful, and designed to make you think about the issues he's fighting for.

Briefly.co.za takes a look at five intense statements that JuJu made at his rally in George on Friday, that cannot be denied by anyone, no matter what race they are.

1. Our children must know the history of South Africa

Talking about the events that happened in South Africa on the 6th April, Malema discussed Jan Van Riebeeck's arrival in 1652, and Solomon Mahlangu's death in 1979, he said that our children need to be educated about the history of South Africa.

2. People respect others who are seen as successful

Malema said that if anyone meets a hobo on the street, they will automatically disrespect them, but the same cannot be said if it's a person who is seen to be successful but is met on the street.

3. White Supremacists doesn't mean all whites

Malema's speeches are often viewed as anti-white, and it's unclear how he really feels about them as a group, but addressing the rally in George, he said that "white supremacists doesn't mean all whites", only those who think they are better than other races because they're white.

He also said that white people born in South Africa have as much right to land as black people born here, but that the ownership of land needs to be fairly distributed among the population.

4. There are no public hospitals you can be proud of

Bringing up the state of public health care, Malema said that people, white or black, are dying in public hospitals, with inadequate facilities and buildings collapsing around them.

He said that 23 years into democracy, the ANC has destroyed the public healthcare system and there are no public hospitals we can be proud of.

5. Education is supposed to be the first thing for government to get right

Malema said the education system has collapsed, and that children are unable to count or remember what they're taught in schools.

He added that education is a permanent solution to poverty and unemployment, and would be necessary for people who wanted to own, work on and protect their land.
