- Julius Malema has made news headlines thanks to his mouth many, many times
- Briefly took a look at some of his most noted remarks and comments and put 5 of them together for those that missed it
- From failing to shade president Ramaphosa to saying most Indians are racist, Malema has said some interesting things this year
Julius Malema - or Juju as he is also known - has said some controversial things over the years.
The EFF leader's tongue has gotten him into very hot water quite a few times this year.
Briefly.co.za decided to highlight just 5 of Juju's comments or statements that got him into trouble or had him making headlines this year.
The majority of Indians are racist
This was Malema's latest attention-grabbing remark and it got him into some serious headlines. As Briefly.co.za reported, Malema also alleged that Indians had it better during apartheid than black people. This was said during a Youth Day speech at Matlosana Stadium in Klerksdorp in the North West.
Whites are the safest people in South Africa
The EFF leader stated in a recent interview that the white people of South Africa are the safest. Of course, this angered many South Africans who were quick to point out the farm murders in the country. According to a report by Briefly.co.za, He added that there is no real white genocide - it does not exist
I have not called for the slaughter of white people - 'at least for now'
This was probably the remark that got the most attention. Malema made headlines again as he is quoted saying he does not call for the slaughter of white people, at least for now
However, Briefly.co.za reported that a video has been shared that put Malema's words into context - he stated that under his leadership there will not be a call for the slaughter of white people. South Africa's response to the initial video with the out-of-context words were very heated.
Malema vowed to continue his and his party’s fight against white privilege
Malema said white people hated anyone who spoke out against the issue and noted the backlash Mmusi Maimane faced from within the DA.
This angered and upset many South Africans.
According to this report by Briefly.co.za, the EFF leader said white privilege and whiteness created unnecessary fear in South Africa.
The failed shade attempt
Julius Malema took to social media to throw shade at Ramaphosa and someone who is influencing him- however, it completely backfired, and he might just have given the ANC a plan to win.
Briefly.co.za reported that the EFF leader posted a tweet on Saturday, which suggested the head of state was being influenced into making “stupid decisions” in an attempt to win the elections.
“If @CyrilRamaphosa is not careful, the man will make him do stupid things including convincing him to invite #Beyonce in the name of winning elections.”, Juju’s tweet read.
Now, we are not sure how Malema thought social media users would take his post, but instead of agreeing with him, tweeps pointed out it was a great idea and Ramaphosa would 100% get their backing if he managed to bring Queen B to SA.
Those are 5 of the most famous remarks or comments made by Julius Malema. But the year is far from over, so watch this space!
