‘Superman’ bays for Malema’s blood

2011-11-11 11:01

A KwaZulu-Natal man dressed in a Superman cape had to be sedated at a shopping centre this week after jumping on car bonnets and shouting “I am looking for Julius Malema”, The Citizen reported today.

The man, wearing short pants and no shoes, threw shopping trolleys around the supermarket on Wednesday before jumping on car bonnets and kicking a truck, according to the report.

Police had to escort the man to a nearby police station.

He told a local journalist from the police van that he was a Superman from the clouds, sent by a guru to kill someone whose name started with the letter J.

He then said this person was axed ANC Youth League president Julius Malema.

“This is my mission – to kill him,” he said.

The man was taken to Dundee hospital to be sedated.

He could face charges of malicious damage to property.

The ANC’s national disciplinary committee suspended Malema from the party for five years yesterday and ordered him to vacate his position.

He was found guilty of provoking division within the ANC and of bringing the organisation into disrepute.

This was after Malema said earlier this year that the ANC Youth League would send a team to Botswana to consolidate local opposition parties and help bring about regime change there.
