Three cheers for Juju

Julius Malema, Juju, is good for South Africa. Many people fear him due to his threats to privatise the mines. Maybe that’s a valid fear. But he isn’t going to get a parliamentary majority any time soon so can’t implement any of his own policies without the assistance of others. But he’s good for South Africa because he is shaking up politics and making people a little uneasy about their comfy roles. The ANC is too comfy helping its cronies rather than driving change across the entire country. The DA never thought any other party would represent the opposition. But Juju’s EFF has them on their toes. His party is asking the right question – why are the poor no better off than twenty years ago? His swearing in ceremony in the parliament was a master stroke – EFF members dressing in the work clothes of the poor. He’s got people talking, and he’s getting younger people engaged in politics. Good on him.

You only dare think it – we dare say it
