“You should not compete over material things. Just because you own a leather jacket you think you have arrived or just because you own a Carvella (Italian shoes). We should compete about how many qualifications do you have,” Julius Malema proclaimed to a crowd of poverty stricken black supporters from the back of an old truck which was being used a stage, the silver buckle of his Louis Vuitton shoes gleaming in the African sunshine.
Those were words we found in a local newsletter being circulated around an affluent area of Gauteng this past month.
Since then the EKP research team has been burrowing holes across the world wide web to elucidate some lesser known examples of millionaire Julius Juju Malema’s blatant hypocrisy, to our audience.
There’s his well-reported love of luxury cars, fine wine, Italian designer shoes and bright orange.
The man sports a $20,000 Breittling watch, frequents high priced gentleman’s clubs, has said he “would move to Hollywood to meet women and chill with Jay-Z” if the opportunity arose – and engages in vacuous antics the likes of Kanye West would embrace.
But how deep does his love of the gangsta lifestyle run?
And how far-reaching is the hypocrisy?
Last month we reported that race profiteer Julius Malema had been caught racing around Johannesburg in a Range Rover Vogue SUV worth more than 1 million Rand/£60k – he was gifted by his Limpopo sugar daddy and MPPJ Property Development boss, Matome Hlabioa.
The gangster admitted that the Range Rover wasn’t the first car he’d gifted the Marxist swine. In fact he boasted that “he had given the high-living youth league leader other fancy cars before.”
It appears Malema in fact owns three Range Rovers-one garaged at his summer home, one in Jo’burg and a third kept by his driver. According to public tax records Malema also owns a Mercedes-C63-AMG, a luxury home in the capital, a glorious summer home in Limpopo and frequently travels by private jet.
(For Malema’s shocking speech to the “heroic” Marxist/Zionist Jewish Student union please see here.)
Then there’s the trust fund and endowment his family controls worth tens of millions of dollars, detailed later in the story.
Our friends at African Mansions BlogSpot write that “Malema’s lavish lifestyle – from his luxury homes, Gucci suits, Breitling watches and parties where his guests are served R700 bottles of whisky and Moët & Chandon champagne – flies in the face of a politician who claims to earn a “middle income” salary.”
Doesn’t it just!
Although some liberals are idealistic in nature, Marxists like Malema and Nadine Gordimer – whose husband ran South Africa’s Sotheby auction house, are little more than power mad parasites, with a love for fine living often unmatched by the 1% they so despise.
Unlike the 1% – societies’ job and wealth creators, these vermin live off the backs of the impoverished people they exploit via class warfare rhetoric. Their lust for power and wealth, and the ostentatious grandeur in which they display it, would make Marie Antoinette blush.
Their love for wealth and glamour is only surpassed by their abject hatred for and envy of all things Afrikaner, Anglo and Western European. Oddly, Malema told a liberal reporter last year – who’d mentioned she’d studied art at university, that he had dreams of buying up all of ‘Europe’s finest art'”
But none of this should surprise people that understand the nature of vile people behind Marxist movements.
Like Marxist Gordimer, Malema grew up in a decent home, studied at a university paid for by the state, and was the definition of affirmative action privilege – a term we’ve coined to counter so-called non existent white privilege.
Like the Marxists before him Malema uses his position, to divide people and incite animosity, by selectively attacking society’s most productive citizens and preying upon the misguided sensibilities of both the black and white populations.
Of all the examples we found, Malema’s most egregious example of Marxist hypocrisy is his decision to place his son in a nearly all-white private school, as Marxists across the globe do quite frequently – a story we are working on and hope to get to you later in the week. Although facts surrounding his son’s enrolment are on the net, the details of the school, what it’s costing Malema and the sort of things the kid’s gotten up to at the posh prep school, are not…. as of yet.
Although examples of Malema’s abuses are upsetting, they’re nothing in comparison to what we will be reporting if this evil man attains power.

HOW JULIUS MALEMA BECAME A MILLIONAIRE, ACCORDING TO CITY PRESS
Piet Rampedi and Adriaan Basson
Johannesburg – A company partly owned by ANC Youth League president Julius Malema’s family trust benefits directly from multimillion-rand tenders it helps to award.
Limpopo outsourced essential government functions to the company, which means it is engaged in the privatisation of state functions. Malema promotes nationalisation.
City Press can reveal that On-Point Engineers (Pty) Ltd – a private company headed by Malema’s former business partner, Lesiba Gwangwa, in which Malema’s Ratanang Family Trust owns a stake – cashes in on Limpopo road tenders it is supposed to manage.
On-Point was awarded a R51m tender by the Limpopo roads and transport department in 2009 to design, manage and implement road projects in the province through an outfit called the “project management unit”. This is outsourcing, a form of privatisation.
As part of the tender, On-Point’s duties include supporting the department with the adjudication and awarding of road tenders.
A document in the possession of City Press reveals that On-Point’s involvement in state tenders doesn’t stop there. The company also signs confidential “back-to-back” agreements with successful contractors, giving it a share of between 50% and 90% of the profits of tenders it helped to award.
The details of these back-to-back agreements are contained in confidential memorandums of understanding, signed between On-Point and contractors to the department. City Press has a pro forma memorandum that is used.
The parties are barred from sharing any information about the agreements with third parties.
“Any information shared by the service provider with the National Treasury will be shared on a statistical basis and no names will be made known unless the express written consent has been obtained from the person whose name is to be made known,” reads one of the clauses.
A National Treasury employee said that government could not outsource functions like this and it appeared that this clause violated constitutional provisions of transparency. Both this person and a businessman who understands the tender system said the back-to-back contracts were illegal and On-Point was conflicted as it could not be both tender referee and beneficiary.
Malema admits owning shares
Two company insiders, three youth league leaders, four business people, two senior civil servants and a provincial ANC leader told City Press that the confidential contract with On-Point was a requirement for any firm that wanted to benefit from projects overseen by the project management unit that the company manages.
On Friday, the Mail & Guardian reported that Malema admitted to owning shares in On-Point through the Ratanang Family Trust, of which he is a co-trustee. The other trustee is his grandmother, Sarah.
“Yes, we are close to On-Point. We are shareholders as a family,” Malema told the paper, declining to elaborate on the extent of the trust’s shareholding. He said he had not influenced any of On-Point’s tenders, adding: “I just queue when the dividends are due.”
According to the firm’s website, On-Point and, by extension, Malema’s family trust have benefited from at least eight other government tenders, excluding the project management unit contract.
This includes the construction of a high school, the upgrading of roads from gravel to tar and sewer reticulation in the Mopani District Municipality.
City Press can reveal that On-Point is a growing enterprise. It was recently appointed by the provincial local government and housing department (run by Clifford Motsepe, a close Malema ally) as consulting engineers on a low-cost housing project near Seshego.
In September 2009, City Press reported that Limpopo roads and transport MEC Pinky Kekana had suspended R300m worth of roads tenders and frozen Roads Agency Limpopo’s R1.2bn budget before firing the agency’s board.
Kekana later transferred the R500m maintenance budget of Roads Agency Limpopo (the provincial parastatal overseeing Limpopo’s road network) to a project management unit that is run by On-Point.
A National Treasury source said this might be illegal.
Malema’s admission of shareholding in On-Point again raises questions about the true purpose and administration of the Ratanang Family Trust, whose sole purpose is to look after the interests of Malema’s 5-year-old son.
