Although Julius Malema has yet to respond to a recent investigative article about him its pretty clear what he thinks of the person who wrote it.

The EFF leader retweeted a screenshot highlighting that journalist Pauli Van Wyk supposedly considers Satan her hero.

A Q&A with the Daily Maverick “ 20 Questions We Ask Everyone” Van Wyk took part in revealed that Satan is her hero because “he puts up with more than I am willing to.” She also went on to say that Satan was the last person she texted.

When asked what the reason would be if she would be put to death she stated that it would be for building “ Satan a highway”; Van Wyk added that the worst job she had ever had was “ Designing the highway to hell. Trigonometry never really was my strength.”

Obviously meant to be satirical answers the journalist lists being a “space traveller” as one of her special skills, joking that she would “get you anyway”. She also said that hell was a parallel universe and that corrupt people ( such as former SARS head Tom Moyane) had been living in a parallel universe too.

Continuing her tongue-in-cheek interview she said that she had “used lyrics from 8 songs in this questionnaire, and you haven’t spotted them all. It’s okay. You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you may find you get what you need,” yet another song reference.

The interview had been criticised by EFF Twitter warrior @Sentletse, who spends his time marketing furniture and interior designing when he isn’t promoting the EFF or launching attacks on their critics.

And, thanks to Van Vyks article, the list of the EFF’s critics is growing rapidly. The information claimed that at least R1.8 Million had reached Malema and deputy Floyd Shivambu from the liquidated VBS Mutual Bank.

The journalist described the money as the “proceeds of crime” and saying that both men would have been aware of this while participating in the alleged scheme, involving family members of both Malema and Shivambu through a network of front companies.

Sentletse likened Van Wyk to “Josephine” Goebbels, the modern father of political propaganda Joseph Goebbels. He accused her of “trash journalism”.

Whilst no sensible person could take the womans interview seriously it is very rare for people to be prosecuted for liking Satan. Corruption, however, is an entirely different matter.

More people were calling for a proper investigation into the EFF’s alleged involvement and for prosecution for any wrongdoing on their part.

The journalist shared a Tweet saying Malema wanted her to share her “notes” with him on why she was connecting them to the VBS looting, no doubt in anticipation of more stories.
