Revolution at Malema's Wedding!

2014-12-28 19:13

The theme of Julius Malema’s two day wedding ceremony in Seshego was both charming and a revolution. It was a revolt against the present day and its torments of fancy. The wedding sourced its mood and theme from a vanished golden Eden of ancient historical Africa. The wedding echoed and expressed nature, African traditions, simpler themes, mystery and sentiments.

The wedding broadened the horizons of the modern Africans' appreciations of the golden age of Africa long ago. The wedding became like a historic poem, a kind of painting evoking nature, history and feeling.

The Bride Mantwa Matlala captured the moment by rebelling against the bulbous convoluted white wedding gown popular among modern African weddings. She appeared on the first day of the wedding with an exotic dab of cloisters of heroic pink, yellow and red Sepedi dress that expressed the pure depths of natural energy. She made the dresses she wore in both the two days not a way of feeling but an art for communicating the feeling. Such colors are marks of royalty among the oldest Africans.

  The dresses stirred mist of imagination and personal character and served as the great educational novel in the evolution of old Africa. Perhaps the most striking thing about this wedding that left many people wondering was the fact that while Julius Malema is an undisputed popular mass movement leader (his ears and heart tuned to the masses on the ground) the wedding was different: enthusiasm was excluded in the mix. The wedding was simply dedicated for the delights of the few with a bout of glow of African charm and tastes. The wedding was much like the elite weddings at the royal foot of Mapungubwe hills way back in 10th century during the great Mapungubwe Kingdom that was located at the confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo rivers. Such weddings in ancient old Africa were exclusive for royals and elite hunters.
