Malema must be put in his rightful place

2009-12-18 13:47

JULIUS Malema tasted his own medicine when he was booed by the SACP delegates.

He wallowed under the impression that he was the master of all trades and that he may demand a platform wherever he goes even if the issues under discussion are ­beyond his level of understanding.

It is high time other institutions follow suit and place him where he belongs. One hardly ever hears Malema addressing issues that affect the youth. Instead he meddles in foreign terrain to appease his masters within the ANC.

I am not surprised by Frene Ginwala’s sentiment that Malema was supposed to have been reined in a long time ago when he insulted our liberation icons such as Thabo Mbeki and Zola Skweyiya.

Children must be taught respect and morals from a young age. P
