Malema may be the next Mandela

The media and South Africans are wrong about Julius Malema. And I'm not saying this because I am a devoted and loyal member of the ANC.

Malema always speaks the truth. I'm convinced that the controversial youth league president might grow up as great as Madiba because he's not afraid to speak his mind.

Recently, he handed over a bursary to Marvin Shilowa, Cope deputy president Mbhazima Shilowa's son. And on his 28th birthday, he distributed groceries and blankets to 200 flood-hit families. This shows he cares a lot about people. Let's give him the support he deserves.
