JULIUS Malema, how about implementing a political character and physical switch-around?
In some ways you are a "brave heart", willing to take on the "Goliaths" fearlessly. You have the gift of the gab and no-one falls asleep when you're in full verbal flight. You are a quick thinker and you have a following of young and not-so-young black people who look up to you for wise and worthwhile leadership.
You must be sick and tired of grabbing the headlines for all the wrong reasons and providing cartoonists with subject matter for the most ridiculous and humiliating cartoons.
Those who particularly dislike you compare you to monsters such as Idi Amin, Adolf Hitler and Robert Mugabe. You surround yourself with bodyguards because you believe, quite rightly, that your life is in danger because some crackpot might have a go at you.
Some even tip you as South Africa's next president. Over whose dead body or bodies?
You are in danger of being relegated to the political wilderness and out of the spotlight that you enjoy so much. Become a man of wisdom. There are many who would be more than willing to teach you.
And go on diet and exercise so you can look like a warrior while acting like a diplomat.
