WHAT HAP­PENED

IN YET AN­OTHER episode in the in­ter­minable soap opera that’s come to de­fine Julius Malema, the ANC Youth League fire­brand took a swipe at Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Naledi Pan­dor. Ac­cus­ing her of hav­ing a fake Amer­i­can ac­cent, Malema said Pan­dor had failed to re­solve se­ri­ous prob­lems af­fect­ing SA’s higher in­sti­tu­tions of learn­ing. THE SOWETAN said Malema was a dis­grace to SA’s youth. In the week lead­ing to his ver­bal at­tack against Pan­dor the news­pa­per said Malema had earned the wrath of IFP leader Man­go­suthu Buthelezi for liken­ing him to Zim­babwe’s Robert Mu­gabe. As SA pre­pares for the elec­tions in April this year The Times said the coun­try should also brace it­self for more Malema gaffes.
