EFF firebrand leader Julius Malema is mulling over retirement from politics. Briefly.co.za learned that Juju as he is popularly known desired to enjoy a life outside politics without having to worry about the stresses involved in it. Juju made these sentiments in a televised interview with JJ Tabane on SABC.
Malema made these remarks as he once again attacked African leaders who do not want to relinquish power. While congratulating newly elected Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Juju was quick to point out that he should only serve one term and pave way for younger leadership.
Despite his sentiments to retire, Malema's ambitions to be President were apparent as he stated his party wants to govern and the 2019 elections could return any possible outcome. In an interview with Al Jazeera in April 2016 Malema said he had no Presidential ambitions. His true nature will be revealed as the clock winds down towards the 2019 elections.
