Questions for the Post Malema Era

25 April 2012, 11:31

Millions of South Africans must surely feel a sense of relief after the ANC finally passed judgment on the future of Julius Malema within the ANC. With that being said one really needs to look at the bigger picture here and ask very important questions.

Even with the verdict passed and the dust settling there seems to be tens of thousands of people within the ANC that completely disagree with the verdict. Most of these people are young South Africans that never saw a day of oppression in their lives yet they are still rallying behind Malema and his message.

How, in a modern South Africa, did Malema last this long? How did he get away with 90% of the things he said? How did he garner so much support from people who were born in a South Africa that provided for all? How does a seemingly uneducated person with so much hate become the leader of the Youth division of his political party?

These are just some of the questions that won’t be answered. You can blame education but then I would counter that argument by saying how thousands of educated university students rallied behind him on his campus visits from 2010 to 2011 and even went so far as to sing the “Kill the Boer” song even after it was banned.

Dare I ask whether his replacement will be any better? Will he be more educated? Will he have better leader qualities than Julius Malema? Are those qualities even needed for him to become popular or should he simply follow in the footsteps of his predecessor and only focus on race and the wrongs of the past?

These questions are surely on the minds of most South Africans as we focus on the future of South Africa after the destruction Julius Malema left.  Only time will tell I suppose…
