Julius Malema is once again in a place from which he cannot lose. Once again, he is in a situation where it looks as if his back is against the wall, where he is being condemned by all “right-thinking” people. Once again, he has managed to dominate the news agenda, and, far more importantly, frame the question. How pleased he must be right now.
On Tuesday the nation was treated once again to the spectacle of people led by Julius Malema trying to break into a place where they were not welcome. The scene this time was the Gauteng Legislature. The protest started at Park Station (a few blocks away from the more traditional starting ground of Mary Fitzgerald Square) and made its way to the Legislature building. Once there, somehow, those in red were able to overcome those in blue, and forced their way in. Chaos, pandaemonium, the usual Malema companions, ensued.
The official point of this protest was to mark the fact that the legislature was once again in session, but that those who represented the EFF within it were not allowed inside. This goes back to an earlier ruling by Gauteng Speaker Ntombi Mekgwe….
