A caller who identified himself only as Muzi took to PowerFM to call Julius Malema a traitor and claimed he deserved apartheid-era punishment.
Malema's interview with Power FM's Aldrin Sampear took an ugly turn when a caller said that Malema deserved to be necklaced. Muzi expressed his anger about the EFF's choice to work with the DA in 2016 .
“We are not stupid. South Africans are not stupid. You’ve failed the African child!”
He went on to say that Malema failed people in townships and was a sell-out.
"If it was back in the days of the struggle, you were supposed to get the tyre.”
Malema was quick to respond and shut the man down.
“I would have put two tyres on you before you would have put one. I’m not scared of any of the nonsense you said here. I’ll put four on you and any of your relatives before you do anything.”
Aldrin Sampear had to intervene before Malema concluded the topic by saying:
"Anyone who feels aggrieved, the 8th of May gives you an option to choose more wisely than you did.”
He addressed other controversial issues like his fallout with with journalist Karima Brown, his recent fight with Papa Penny and the VBS scandal .
He said he would not apologise to Papa Penny because he says his utterances were political speech.
Malema did extend an apology to Karima, however.
“I apologise for putting her number but I do not apologise that she is an ANC mole.”
