Everyday I see Malema shouting on television I admire his energy and convictions. Everyday I hear him talk about the EFF and the vision or democratized economic prosperity I chuckle with pride.
I saw him deliver that oratory at Winnie’s funeral. I heard him call names. I was touched by his delivery. But I did’t know why I even thought he could shock me, and throw a dart at Dali Mpofu for me.
Dali Mpofu was a young ANC lawyer. He was half Winnie Mandela’s age at some point. The allegations were rife then. He was suspected of repeated open adultery with Winnie. Reports reached Mandela, he didnt curse him as many expected.
When Mandela came home from prison many thought they would stop. But the liaison between Winnie and Dali Mpofu continued, apparently. Winnie strenuously denied the open secret. But her love letters to the impudent adulterer were later exposed.
Mpofu is innocent, yes he denied all the allegations.
In one letter Winnie wrote Dali Mpofu :
“…….. you have no time for me……….you are running around f…… girls at every emotional excuse……. ….Tata has not spoken to me for 5 months because of you….. yet you have no time for me……I tell you the situation is deteriorating at home for me but you are not bothered , you are satisfying yourself every night with a woman…..I wont be your bloody fool Dali…..Tata is investigating my accounts…….
Tata (Mandela) divorced Winnie for unrelenting infidelity.
Dali Mpofu and Winnie were investigated by the ANC for embezzlement of funds belonging to Social Development Dept which they both ran. Dali Mpofu was sacked. Winnie Mandela resigned .
That same Dali has become the chairman of EFF, one of the there major parties in South Africa.
Malema is the founder, mouth piece and president of the party. He sees and talks about the sin of everyone, past and present. But on Dali Mpofu and that sacrilege, he is deaf blind and dumb.
Malema. Typically, African.
