Johannesburg – Secretary general of the Congress of South African Students Khulekani Sikhosana on Saturday vowed to go after EFF leader, Julius Malema.

Speaking shortly after President Jacob Zuma delivered his keynote address on the second day of the ANC Youth League’s 25th National Congress in Midrand, Sikhosana said, “Julius, we are coming for you. Those red barrettes that you wear are nothing but cheap fabric from Japan and China. 

“We are not inspired by such nonsensical things. Julius Malema is a balloon of Heineken and he has said so himself,” he said to loud cheers and banging of tables.

He went on to say: “Julius Malema thinks that Heineken is a form of political education. We are not confused… as the youth league, we have a common itch in our butts [just like Malema] and we are going to scratch that itch.

“As Cosas [we] will make sure that we rectify and fix our factory faults. Sasco needs to make sure that Floyd Shivambu is also fixed because he is a problem.”

Sikhosana called on the youth league to be grateful to the ANC government.

“It is because of President Jacob Zuma’s government that 80% of public schools receive free education, in his leadership students no longer eat pap and milk for feeding schemes; we eat chicken and steak and vegetables.”

‘Photocopy Obama’

Sikhosana also took a jibe at Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane.

“To that fake photocopy Barack Obama who is called Mmusi Maimane, just because you can speak English, it does not mean we are inspired by you.

“Just because you can go to Ackermans and Mr Price and buy a suit, it does not mean we are inspired by you. Young people of South Africa want academic excellence, they want education, they are going to change their own lives and they do not have any expectations from Parliament to make themselves better.

“We will go to school… and take the lead,” said Sikhosana to loud cheers.

When contacted for comment Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema simply said, “I am not interested.”

DA leader Mmusi Maimane said, “I try and make it a habit not to respond to children. It is their congress, they can say whatever they want.”
