Julius Malema is probably the most controversial politician in South Africa. his speech at Winnie Mandela’s funeral will surely add to this reputation.
The former leader of the ANC youth league has been a radical in S.A politics with his language seen as both dangerous and hate-filled, while his supporters see him as a visionary who speaks the truth.
This past weekend while speaking at the burial of Winnie Mandela, the man went out and out to shame the individuals who had been stumbling blocks in her life while she was alive.
It was a no-holds-barred speech. He said the individuals who had oppressed her where unashamedly at her funeral.
The speech is below:
This speech by Julius Malema will be remembered for generations to come.

Kenyans were inspired by the speech and some suggested that our very own Kennneth Matiba who died on Sunday deserved his very own Malema at his speech.
