Johannesburg - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema can add another name to his list of supporters: Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe, the leader of Zanu-PF, according to City Press.

A columnist in Zimbabwe’s state-run paper The Herald, Nathaniel Manheru, this week waxed lyrical about Malema’s stance on land reform and the threat he poses to the ANC.

Manheru is widely accepted to be the pseudonym of Mugabe’s spokesperson George Charamba.

In his column at the weekend, Manheru offered a glowing review of Malema’s future.

Malema was recently quoted in media reports saying that Zimbabwe will be the only country in 20 years’ time where Africans own their land.

Malema has previously endeared himself to Mugabe by publicly saying that his party would embrace any form of support from Zanu-PF.

Zimbabwean political commentator Zama Mkhwananzi said the party will not openly come out in support of Malema because of the regional liberation movement tag it shares with the ANC.
