Do you want to occupy a spot in the heart of South Africa’s most radical politician? Do you want to earn his respect and have him like you the more? Then, you have just one thing to do – a simple task, though.
Outside the political enclave, Julius Malema barely talks about individuals who impressive him, except his wife, who he has severally praised for being an outstanding woman and a woman that commands his respect anytime, any day.
Drawing inspiration from Lebohang Mabuya, a South African woman who made headlines on Sunday for standing up against a white man at Texamo Spur in The Glen Shopping Centre in Joburg, Malema shared what is takes to earn his respect in a video footage that has since gone viral.
According to the chief fighter, only people who are not ‘scared’ of white people earn his respect.
In the video he said: “… and I find you standing up to a white man, I’ll go around talking about you. People who are not scared of white people, I respect them. You don’t have to stand up to them because they’re white, you stand up to them because they want to display white supremacy.”

Apparently, Malema was making reference to the Spur video that has got many people slamming the white man for grabbing Mabuya’s child in an aggressive and disrespectful manner.
The video also showed the aggressive white male threatening Mabuya with children around the table, with the woman standing up and firing back with expletives.
Spur has since apologized to the woman after reviewing the video footage.
In a statement, it said: “We have reviewed our CCTV footage of the incident and can confirm that Ms. Mabuya’s version of events is accurate.
We affirm our decision to ban the male customer from our stores. Physical aggression towards our customers‚ particularly against women and children, will not be tolerated.
We acknowledge that the staff and management of the store did not sufficiently assist Ms. Mabuya. We have addressed this with the store management and we are reviewing our internal procedures to ensure that restaurant staff members are better equipped to manage an incident such as this.”
Apparently, for Malema, you don’t have to hate white people to earn his respect, you only have to stand up to them.
Watch the video between Mubya and the aggressive white man.
On several occasions, Julius Malema had bravely stood up against whites, alleging that they are responsible for the plights of the black people, including their landlessness and inability to access other things in the country.
