Malema 'moered' with Moët - SMS

2012-07-22 17:30

Johannesburg - Julius Malema was left nursing his wounds after he was reportedly injured at a friend’s wedding earlier this month – by flying bottles of his favourite French bubbly.

An SMS was circulated after the wedding. It read, “Malema moered, nursing bruises suffered from last night’s beatings at wedding in Seshego.”

City Press understands that the former ANC Youth League president’s arms were cut and bruised after he was pelted with bottles of expensive Moët champagne at the wedding of his friend and business partner Collins Foromo.

A guest at the wedding, which was held at the Honeymoon Lodge in Seshego, Limpopo, said Malema was angered by the arrival of his archenemy Nigel Baloyi and a few of his friends.

Baloyi is the Youth League’s secretary in the ANC’s Peter Mokaba region.

“Malema sent bouncers to Baloyi to kick him out. Baloyi, who apparently had also been invited, went away and came back with more friends, including Boy Mamabolo, who is also a fierce enemy of Malema,” said the guest, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“Malema then went to the stage, grabbed the microphone and started shouting: ‘We are seeing criminals here! We are seeing hooligans!’” the guest said.


Malema apparently continued his taunts, saying: “Please go away as this is a private function. We don’t want to fight with you, but you are not invited. Please go away and leave us alone. If you want a fight we will give it to you. We are products of street fights.”

Baloyi and Mamabolo’s group, the guest said, then sprang into action and hurled cider and wine bottles at Malema – followed by bottles of Moët & Chandon.

“There was a bit of chaos with people running for cover. They called the police, who arrived promptly and restored peace. No one was arrested. The wedding moved to Giyani the following day and I saw Malema there. He had a bandage on his right arm,” the guest said.

Baloyi confirmed that Malema sent his bodyguards to him to kick him out of the wedding reception.

“Julius was sitting with [Limpopo youth league secretary] Jacob Lebogo, cousin Tshepo Malema, and close friend Jossie Buthane.

Jossie came with bodyguards and he told me that I was not wanted. They grabbed me by the hand and pulled me outside,” he said.

Baloyi also confirmed that he called Mamabolo, but he denied that his friends began pelting Malema with bottles.

“His bodyguards came and attacked us and we had to defend ourselves. I don’t know who injured him, but I saw his arm covered in a T-shirt, and full of blood,” said Baloyi.

Malema confirmed that he attended the wedding at the lodge owned by Limpopo’s MEC for sports, arts and culture Dipuo Litsatsi Duba, but said he never had a fight with anyone.

“By the time I left, nothing like that had happened. I was at the wedding, but I never saw the fight,” he said.

    Some people think they own South Africa because the happened to hold high leadership position within their political parties. Its very funny when they even speak about economical freedon when all they did was to grant themselves and their friends with a lot of economic freedom and the very same poor they talk about continues to remain in poverty.

      I would love to know how they pronounce Moet(dunno how to put the cuppies on the E) and Chandon..."Can I have one moat and chad"

  • martin.pearce.3762 - 2012-07-22 12:24

    Its a sad situation when everyone needs bodyguards. what are they scared of, if they are so popular? is this the new job creation?

    So these people are throwing Chaundon as missiles at their lavish weddings yet Limpompo is broke, they better keep in mind thatas soon as the hawks swoop in on them they'll be throwing bread crumbs in a jail cell. Oh I forgot in this country you get a little cough in prison and you get medical parole

      colin.langley - 2012-07-23 14:00

      LOL so true!

      alon.fisher.752 - 2012-07-23 15:41

      Where does Limpopo get money for moet? Yet kids do maths under the shadow of boababs,all without textbooks. Makes one think doesn't it?

  • glenda.mackay.18 - 2012-07-22 18:05

    'at the lodge owned by Limpopo’s MEC for sports, arts and culture Dipuo Litsatsi Duba'. What else do they own with our money!? What about the PEOPLE who voted you in, that still don't have jobs and food. We won't mention the Moët & Chandon! It's proof that money does not buy breeding and class.

  • bmntwaphi - 2012-07-22 18:08

    How I wish he was beaten until he was brain dead, not that he has any.

      devon.riley.52 - 2012-07-22 18:16

      That is a little hard to accomplish as he was born brain dead

    "Malema confirmed that he attended the wedding at the lodge owned by Limpopo’s MEC for sports, arts and culture Dipuo Litsatsi Duba, but said he never had a fight with anyone". If he was willing to lie about this, what else is he willing to lie about. You can dress them(ANCYL and ex'es) but you can't take them anywhere.

      joel.mafolo - 2012-07-23 09:53

      How do you know he is lying? Have you forgotten that old Afrikaans adage "hy lieg sooos 'n koerant"? Do not be gullible enough to believe everthing you read in newspapers. Eight out of ten times when newspapers report on events that I am close to, the story is either spiced or a total fabrication.

  • devon.riley.52 - 2012-07-22 18:15

    Yeah I am afraid money can buy the Moet but it can't buy class. Savages will remain savages, but dressed in expensive clothes and wearing Breitling watches

    the only people who can deal with malema are Limpopo youth watch the space this is the bgnng of more attack to come

      DrGonzoSA - 2012-07-23 08:38

      Anybody can deal with Malema. Just ignore him. He is a classic attention seeker

      alon.fisher.752 - 2012-07-23 09:50

      LOL was quiet entertaining Vadyamina and thanks for the laugh, but pleeeeeeeez next time, do it outside the reception and far away from the groom and guests, this was just rude and impolite. Yet dragging him into a dark corner to get business done and filming it can only do a load of good :-)

  • FerretGee - 2012-07-22 18:22

    Classy..... great wedding memories for the happy couple.

      arthur.hugh - 2012-07-23 08:57

      My thoughts exactly.

  • mike.clery - 2012-07-22 18:23

    So he thinks it's OK to order the removal of invited guests from a friend's wedding? And it's OK to grab the microphone and shout the odds? How civilised.

      martin.schoeman.33 - 2012-07-22 19:20

      Only trying to get rid of the bloody agents, I suppose.

  • nettie.potgieter.5 - 2012-07-22 18:34

    Juju created the missils himself as he can not remember being in this war. Alcohol memory loss?

      boltonbarry - 2012-07-22 18:39

      That makes absolutely no sense at all ??

      nettie.potgieter.5 - 2012-07-22 19:17

      Bolton Juju drank the bubbly called MOET. The empty bottels became flying objects(missils) word war is used instead off fight(sacastic) as Juju always want to make war with everbody. Do I need to tell you what alcohol memory loss is? Poor Brett I now have simpathy with you

      boltonbarry - 2012-07-22 23:45

      AHA now that's better

      boltonbarry - 2012-07-22 23:46

      Be careful for feeling sorry for Brett. You'll be in his bed as his next victim

      O no, I am not well known or a fool!

  • SARealist - 2012-07-22 18:37

    Ja No well fine, what a role model for the youth?

      gail.hayesbean - 2012-07-23 14:09

      I really think the Moet was empty and this is why Juju had the courage to make himself target of the empty bottles. Maybe a bottle did hit him on the head - must have a lekker babbelas after both imbibing and then being hit by an empty bottle of the stuff. No wonder he can't remember. It's just a matter of time before cirrhosis of the liver sets in and heart attacks and kidney failure and diabetes.

  • trevor.pietersen.3 - 2012-07-22 18:38
