The reason why I say that Malema is what we (South Africa) needed is:
(1)..He is brave enough to actually get out there and expose all the leaders that are not doing their jobs for ie, the Marikana incident. I mean, someone had to attend to those miners and show them some sympathy or a glimpse of hope atleast, considering what had happened to their late colleagues. We might sometimes not like the manner in which he does what he does yet, all this at the end of the day serves as an eye-opener towards the fact that we haven't leaders in this country. If there was no Malema, we wouldn't actually see that our country is in such a bad state in terms of leadership.
(2)..There is truth in everything he says about anything in this country, and all we should be doing instead of attacking him as the 'bad guy' is to actually start asking ourselves whether we have the right people leading South Africa, and why.
(3)..Julius Malema has highlighted that most of our leaders have scandals (including himself) and I think those are the issues we as South Africa should be discussing and actually focusing on, don't you think?
Well I think that it would be a way forward as opposed to us focusing on what his bank balance is and how many girlfriends he might have.
Let us shift our focus and fix this country instead of making a joke out of it.
