When Questioned About Ramaphosa, Malema Mentioned What We Should Ask Mbalula, See This

It may seem like there are times when the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema should be asked about certain things.

What we have always known is that, Malema has never held back when it comes to expressing how he feels about certain issues and there is a lot that has come up lately, which had to be brought to his attention.

On Thursday, this week, the EFF leader was in conversation with media personality Sizwe Dlomo on Kaya FM and one way to describe a lot that they got into is interesting.

We got to hear about a lot and you might wonder what the Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbalula's name has to do with all of this. Well, this is not really about Mbalula, certainly not about him being grilled by BBC host Stephen Sackur recently.

It would be interesting to know what Malema would have to say about Mbalula's interview with the BBC, a lot of people have been reacting to that. You can go to for more on that.

Now, this is about Malema explaining to us who he is closer to between president Cyril Ramaphosa and former president Jacob Zuma.

And this one must have been a shocker to a lot of people, who would have thought that Malema was closer to Ramaphosa than he is to Zuma? Now, there is clearly a lot that we do not know about, Malema even went as far as saying that he can have a chilled conversation with Ramaphosa.

In a way, this shows that, even though these people disagree a lot, they still talk and it is really bound to get to that point, these are adults, after all.

Like a lot of other South Africans, Sizwe Dlomo found it hard to believe that Malema is not as close to Zuma as he is to Ramaphosa.

Malema assured him, he told him that he can ask Mbalula to attest to what he was saying because it turns out that Mbalula is Malema's friend. We see the videos and pictures, but we can never really tell what is happening, simply because we are watching from afar.

If you have ever wondered what Malema's connection, in his personal capacity, is with other politicians, then now you know.

What do you think about this? Please share your thoughts. Go to to watch this.
