Hypocrite Malema jets off to R10m party with the rich after march against poverty
Malema couldn't get away from the masses fast enough. He was whisked away in a blue-light convoy to catch a business class flight to party it up at the five-star resort.
The wedding was that of his friend, Limpopo-based property developer David Mabilu, who booked out the entire Long Beach resort for 300 guests.
Yesterday Mabilu, 42, married his fiancée, Phala Mokgophi, 38, at a glamorous beach ceremony in front of about 300 guests. The couple had splashed out more than R10-million on the three-day ceremony, including flights and accommodation for their guests.
On Friday, once Malema was seated on board the Air Mauritius aircraft, the pilot announced: "Please welcome Mr Julius Malema, president of the ANC Youth League, on board." When the flight landed at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, Malema was picked up from the aircraft in a private vehicle and shuttled to the terminal. He later checked into the exclusive five-star Long Beach resort, where rates start at R4648 a night for a beach-facing room and go up to R14 784 for a suite.
At the couple's pre-wedding party at the resort, Malema, who had changed into a pale pink and white long-sleeved shirt and beige trousers, joined the celebrations at 1am.
Earlier on Friday, addressing his followers before sunrise in Pretoria, Malema said: "When they ask you why you are marching, you must say you are marching because you want to live like whites. Everything that whites have, we want it also." Outside the Union Buildings, placards carried by the crowd read: "Ninety percent of the economy is still in the hands of the minority" and "Down with white capital monopoly". (From TimesLive)
Only one word comes to mind... Hypocrite!
