The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
The contradiction called Julius Malema is hard at work ahead of Saturday’s launch of his EFF’s election manifesto. While democrats would have been horrified to see his Al Jazeera interview last night, they would also cheer yesterday’s message to residents of the emerging middle class Midrand suburb of Ebony Park. Malema explained that without adherence to the Constitution, South Africa will end up a failed state where soldiers will be above the law and eventually SA citizens will move to other countries, much like a situation where African immigrants come here. That message will resonate a lot more strongly than anything else opposition parties have used to explain the danger inherent in President Jacob Zuma brushing off the scathing Constitutional Court judgement. Malema is erratic and he is a dangerous populist. But there’s no doubting his connection to the electorate, reflected in a talent to engage in language they understand. – Alec Hogg
