Ben Trovato Writes a Letter to Julius Malema
Ben Trovato has written a typically amusing and cutting letter to Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema.
Trovato, whose true identity was revealed for the first time recently as Mark Verbaan in Incognito: The Memoirs of Ben Trovato, congratulates Malema on securing a job in parliament, although he suggests his sartorial decisions may be slightly misguided:
Dear Honourable Comrade Commander-in-Chief,
Congratulations on landing once again with your bum firmly in the butter.
If sheltered employment is what you’re looking for, you could do a lot worse than parliament. Hell, for a million rand a year, I’d also dress up in a fire engine red onesie and shiny plastic hat.
To be honest, I’m not sure red is your best colour. Sure, it brings out your eyes. But it makes you look … how can I put this sensitively? It makes you look fat. Enormous. If you were a Teletubby, even Tinky Winky would suggest you go on a diet.
