Malema’s populist politics: everyone must fall!

    sello must go

    Economic Freedom Fighters commander in chief Julius Malema seems to specialise in pointing his finger at others. He’s long called for the downfall of President Jacob Zuma (conveniently forgetting that he was one of JZ’s biggest supporters in Polokwane in 2008) and has now hopped on the #RhodesMustFall bandwagon. However, as Malema knows full well due to his fall from grace in the ANCYL: it’s all-too-easy to get caught up in populist calls to replace leaders or tear down statues – and his own place in history isn’t set in stone.
