In the first place, a social media user, palesa majongile, with the handle @palesamajongile got it all wrong about Malema’s real age. But Juju was fast enough to remind him his real age.
While South Africans are yet to soak up the devastating death of gospel legend Lundi Tyamara, a Twitter user on Friday, wished South Africa’s Julius Malema and EFF chief fighter would die in his 30s as well.
A meme uploaded by palesa majongile read: “Mandoza died at age 38, Sfiso Ncwane at age 38, Lundi dies at 38. Malema is 37 this year, ‘My Lord make no mistake’ … Amen.”

No doubt, Palesa Majongile’s upload clearly shows that she is not a fan of the tireless fighter.
However, Malema reacted to the tweet by telling her that he would be turning 36 and not 37.
He also got a lot of support from his fans, who prayed to God to grant him long life – longer than that of Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe.
Others threw shades at Palesa Majongile, assuring her that Juju isn’t dying now:

Wiseman from pe @PeWiseman Feb 2
@julius_s_malema @palesamajongile i wish you were born earlier i wish you were there during negotiations zo tata mandela.
A blunt follower, however, said if anyone should die at 38, it should ANC Youth League president, Collen Maine.

I think OROS is the one who’s turning 38. #DealWithHimLord.
South Africa began the new year with the devastating death of Gospel singer Lundi Tyamara in the early hours of Friday, January 27, 2017. He died at 38.
Tyamara died precisely at 12.40am at Edenvale Hospital; where was treated for tuberculosis of the stomach and a liver condition. He is survived by two sisters and a brother. Tyamara’s mother died in 2006, and his stepfather passed on shortly after.
He was diagnosed as having abdominal tuberculosis (TB) and a liver condition the same year. His health took a turn for the worse on Monday, 23, January 2017 and he was moved to ICU and put on life support. He later died on January 27 – a day after a night vigil was held at Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg CBD to pray for his recovery.
Another renowned musician who died at 38 was Kwaito legend Mandoza. He died after losing a battle to cancer. His death came just eight days after putting up a good show at the Thank You SABC concert on September 10 2016.
Next on the row was Gospel singer Sfiso Ncwane. He died in Johannesburg on December 5 as a result of kidney failure.
Well, like myself, many EFF fans believe Palesa Majongile actually made a blunder because the last time we checked, Malema is a politician, not a musician.
