Malema sparkles - Juju shows his talents on new TV channel

By Gugu Sibiya | Jul 16, 2010 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

JULIUS Malema is a man of many talents. This was evidenced on the newly launched DStv's Mzansi Magic on Channel 107.

Hosted by the charismatic Kaya FM's Thabo Mokwele, aka T-Bose, the programme is entitled The Best T in the City. The programme comes between 9am and noon and features prominent people to enable viewers to find out the other side of their personalities.

Interestingly, the programme takes place against the backdrop of the visitors' Top 10 songs. In this case it was Malema's revealing and fascinating repertoire.

A smiling, forthcoming and relaxed Malema responded to questions about his militancy. He said whoever became a youth leader would always have to be outgoing, assertive and take charge, articulating the minds of his comrades without compromising their standpoint.

He said while he appreciated polygamy, he did not subscribe to it. "If a man is allowed to marry seven women, then the woman should also be allowed to walk down the aisle with five men," he said.

Malema, who is affectionately known as Juju, said his philosophy was one man, one woman, using a condom.

He conceded that he had a three-year-old son. He said despite this, the boy's mother had never put pressure on him to get married.

In between his interesting Top 10 songs, Malema, among other things, said that no ANC man was invincible. He also said if the party wanted to redeploy a member for whatever reason, then they could do so at any time.

Malema insisted that the only people who were getting richer in South Africa were the white males, while black women were getting poorer. He said his hero was the late former ANC Youth League president and political activist Peter Mokaba.

"As an aspiring politician, there's no way I would look up to Karabo Moroka and motormouth Kenneth Mashaba, both of Generations."

Malema selected refreshing Top 10 hits that included house tracks by DJs MaHoota, Clock, BlackCoffee, Oskido and Nhlanhla Ncinza's Congo.

If things go the way they did on Wednesday on Mzansi Magic, I can just see myself locked up onChannel 107.
