The real Malema.


HYPOCRISY, SQUARED
Revolutionary trash sometimes requires trash journalism, literally
By Marianne Thamm• 3 July 2019
Daily Maverick

“An EFF entourage that travelled to Cape Town for SONA and the subsequent parliamentary debates booked into a four-bedroom luxury Camps Bay villa priced at between R7,100 and R25,000 a night. When the Fighters checked out at 10am on Thursday 27 June 2019 they had run up a bill of about R60,000 for eight nights, most if it going to be pocketed by the foreign owner. They also left their trash out in the street. So we went through it….

"…..The booking for the fighters at the Camps Bay villa with its panoramic sea views had been made for 2pm on June 19, a day before President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address. The reservation was made by Larry Mavunda, CIC Julius Malema’s bodyguard. Mavunda seldom leaves the CIC’s side.

And while the EFF manifesto may call for “The Illegalisation of Alcohol Advertisement Bill, which will end the celebration and promotion of alcohol consumption in South Africa” the fighters spent at least R25,000, at a conservative estimate, much of it on the French champagne brands Veuve Clicquot, Veuve Clicquot Rich and Moët et Chandon.

(A bottle of Veuve Clicquot sells for about R600 and the silver Veuve Clicquot Rich goes for R900. Moët Nectar Imperial will set you back around R700.)

Among the 37 bottles retrieved from seven out of at least 14 bags of trash the fighters left behind and that had been put out in the street, were empty bottles of Meerlust Rubicon (R425 a bottle), Glenfiddich whisky (special edition at R1,500 a bottle) and Tanqueray gin which retails at around R289 a bottle…..”"

"…..So, sometimes, going through Revolutionary Trash is about policing hypocrisy.

Because if these Economic Freedom Fighters want to create special economic zones in South Africa to stimulate local economies, then there are any number of “township” bed and breakfasts that could have done with the recirculation of the R60,000 they spent on their own luxury accommodation. Restaurants too in Langa and Khayelitsha could have benefited from the clearly healthy appetites and thirst of the young revolutionaries.

If the EFF wants to ban foreign ownership they should not support a foreign-owned business in South Africa. If they did not know the villa was foreign-owned they could have asked. Camps Bay is crawling with wealthy Europeans cashing in on our weak rand…."

Who funds the "EFF graduate program"?

What is the EFF promising to their "sponsors" when investing in this program?

Congratulations to this dude but political parties shouldn't be involved in "graduate programs"

Businesses should have very little to do with political parties in this country.

I am tired of politicians " tenderpreneuring" their way to becoming millionaires, at the cost of the economy & literally stealing futures away from the vulnerable.

It doesn't matter what you think, a disadvantaged young person's life has been changed for the better. May Malema continue transforming more lives.

Lol. One swallow doesn't make summer. I love how you pro ANC dudes think. Just think how many disadvantaged young people they could have helped if they didn't steal all the money.. But like you say... the previous government did it..
