A demagogue in the cold

The recent article by the City Press Newspaper about the former ANC youth league leader, Julius Malema touched something inside of me. He cast a lonely figure. No more cameras flashing following him as if he is some form of a pop icon. How the mighty fall! His friends had abandoned him in droves. That's not a good way to live. You know the thing about Malema is that he is a a born leader who somehow needed to be properly guided. A rough diamond that needed polishing. Malema made politics interesting and had the knack of saying the most bizarre things many of us afraid to voice. I bet South Africa will miss him...vulgar or not. He was the talking point....
