The Controversial Julius Malema’s meeting with Uebert Angel
An old picture of Julius Malema, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in South Africa, wining and dining with Zimbabwe’s notorious plenipotentiary gold mafia kingpin, Prophet Uebert Angel, has caused controversy online. The photo was reportedly taken at a restaurant in Sandton, South Africa, at an unknown date and time.
In the photo, Malema and Angel are seen smiling and enjoying a meal together. The meeting has raised questions about Malema’s association with Angel, given the latter’s alleged involvement in illegal activities. Angel has been accused of being part of a gold smuggling mafia syndicate and was captured on video pledging to launder dirty money worth a billion into Zimbabwe.
Malema’s Controversial Political Standing
Malema has been a controversial figure in South African politics, known for his outspoken criticism of government corruption and his calls for economic and social justice. He has also been accused of using divisive language and inciting violence. Malema’s political party, the EFF, is a left-wing party that advocates for the nationalization of industries and the redistribution of land without compensation.
Reactions on Social Media
The picture of Julius Malema’s meal with Uebert Angel has sparked a range of reactions on social media, with many expressing disappointment in Malema’s apparent association with a man accused of illegal activities. Some have accused Malema of hypocrisy for dining with a man he has previously condemned.
Others, however, have defended Malema, arguing that there is nothing wrong with him having a meal with someone, even if that person has a controversial reputation. Malema has not commented on the meeting as of yet, but sources close to him have suggested that it was simply a social gathering and that Malema was not aware of Angel’s alleged criminal activities.
