yip - Julius malema seems much thinner these days. So there is element of truth that he is better at dieting than majority of South africans. There is always something good to be found in everyone/everything.

Hmmm at the point about the Boipatong massacre stuff (2nd part), I would have got up and left if I was FW de Klerk. This interviewer was looking to get specific answers, rather than just conducting a good interview with a very important man in the history of this country.

I think some would say if you were black too
For many blacks certainly. The apartheid government actually built hospitals for black areas and made sure they were run properly for a start. There are actually fewer government run medical departments in PE now than before 1994 and they are mostly very poorly run.
