Malema makes Time magazine list

2010-05-03 13:11
Cape Town - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has been listed in Time Magazine's Least Influential People of 2010.

The magazine says: "Malema is just like Joe Biden - if instead of innocuous, silly slipups, Biden delivered violent, racist, misogynist rants. It got so bad, he's been censured by his party and convicted of hate speech. So he just said violent things about the party."

Malema is to face disciplinary action after a statement by the leadership of the ANC stated it had presented the youth league president with complaints regarding his "deviant behaviour", reported Beeld.

Others included in the list Russian president Dmitry Medvedev; Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray; Oprah Winfrey's fiancé Stedman Graham; Balloon Boy's mother, Mayumi Heene; and the president of the US Metric Association, Lorelle Young.

The list was released at the same time as the annual Time 100 issue which includes former Mozambican first lady Graça Machel, US President Barack Obama, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, sports stars Didier Drogba and Sachin Tendulkar, and South African director Neill Blomkamp.
