Malema speech: Send us early signals, Kenyans tell Matiba

Firebrand South African politician had no mercy for those he said betrayed Winnie Mandela to the apartheid regime and even disowned her and yet were crying the loudest following her death



South African Economic Freedom Fighters party leader Julius Malema’s powerful speech at Winnie Mandela’s funeral on Sunday has become an internet sensation with people from across the continent borrowing his bare-knuckled criticism of hypocrites to relate their own situations.

Malema had no mercy for those he said betrayed Nelson Mandela’s first wife to the apartheid regime and even disowned her and yet were crying the loudest following her death. He, however, said he did not know how to deal with them since she never told him how, adding he was waiting for a signal.

Kenyans on Twitter are among those participating in the #JuliusMalemaChallenge with some suggesting a similar speech should be delivered during liberation hero Kenneth Matiba’s funeral. Others urged the veteran politician, who died on Sunday as a result of complications he suffered while in prison, to send them early signals on how to deal with those who persecuted him.

Here are some of the posts:

Julius Malema unknowingly under 10 minutes restructured and changed how Africans will be mourning their heroes. We will call out all the hypocrites & betrayors in beautiful suits.#JuliusMalemaChallenge is by being truthful. #RIPMATIBA send us early signals how to deal with them

So much hypocrisy on the Death of Matiba. I think we need our Julius Malema to deconstruct them on the spot. And only Dr. @migunamiguna can currently carry the mantle with honour. #RIPKennethMatiba

@orengo_james was the original Malema. Watch how those who tortured Matiba (Moi), sat by as his businesses were auctioned (Kibaki), and refused to process the payment of Matiba’s court award for the torture (Uhuru) now send eloquent messages of condolence. #FakeTears#RIPMatiba
