- COPE leader, Mosiuoa “Terror” Lekota, made a statement recently in which he compared EFF leader, Julius Malema, to a “little fly” who has been dropped “in milk”
- Lekota went on to say that South Africa has become too distracted by this “little fly”
- In his address to the press, Lekota also mentioned his skepticism when it comes to Cyril Ramaphosa, the current South African president
Mosiuoa “Terror” Lekota, leader of the COPE political party, recently made his views on Julius Malema very clear in an address at the Cape Town Press Club.
According to News24, Lekota described the weekly schedules of South Africans, saying that citizens go to work, to church and have fun with free time and sport, but all the while they are disturbed by a “little fly” who has flown into “milk”.
This little fly, explained Lekota, is EFF leader, Julius Malema.
“They don't see the milk anymore, they only see the fly,” Lekota continued.
As vague as this analogy may seem, Lekota also blatantly asked:
“Why is Malema important?”
And, while he did not supply any answers to this question, Lekota went on to criticize the EFF for not being involved in what’s happening in the country, at ground-level
“I hear a lot of talk about the EFF. South Africa is a place where... South Africans they live in this country but it seems to me they never know what happens in this country.”
While it seems that the COPE leader had a lot to say about the red berets, Briefly.co.za saw that Lakota also made mention of SA’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa.
The head of COPE admitted, “people are optimistic about Cyril,” but mysteriously added, "I know one Cyril, people know another."
Relying on another analogy, Lekota told the press that he saw Ramaphosa as “a man standing in the deep of a river surrounded by crocodiles,” who will only be able to stay alive by throwing chunks of meat at the scaly beasts.
While Lekota has given South Africa a lot to think about with his interesting metaphors, only time will tell who the public will put their trust in for these 2019 elections.
