Spy Claims Against Julius Malema: A “Hired Voice” Paid to “Generate Revolts”

Still an Inconvenient YouthJulius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters and subject of Still an Inconvenient Youth: Julius Malema Carries On, is among the high-profile political figures who are being investigated following dubious spy claims.

Allegations of spying were made against Malema, Thuli Madonsela, Lindiwe Mazibuko and Joseph Mathunjwa, on a website riddled with affectedly provocative language, grammatical nonsense and claims about the CIA’s efforts to destabilise Africa. Despite the amateur and undeniably overblown nature of the claims, the State Security Agency (SSA) has decided to treat them as a matter of utmost seriousness.

In an article for The Times, Madonsela, who is Public Protector and not in President Jacob Zuma’s good books, was quoted as saying it is “interesting” that this surfaced just before Zuma is due to answer tough questions in parliament.

Malema also weighed in on the conversation.

Read the article:

Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema said: “I have never heard such madness in my life… Those people are clowns. Our biggest problem is that our ‘intelligence’ is not intelligent.”

The series of blog posts accusing Malema, Madonsela, Mazibuko and Mathunjwa were filed by the “Board of Editors”, and hardly inspire credulity.

Read the post about Malema:

Since Julius Sello Malema was a child, he was an activist of the ruling African National Congress and with a rising political career he became the hired voice to deal with these plans and generate the revolts

Thanks to evidence found trough investigations, it has been proved that Malema is a person of doubtful reputation due to his implications with the mob, money laundry, corruption and the wrong use of influences.
