Julius Malema, the leader of the EFF, continues to be a political force to reckon with, proving that he’s a mastermind in the run-up to the 2024 elections.
Malema has a knack for rallying support, and he’s not about to change a winning formula. He recently showcased his political finesse by sharing a video on his Twitter page featuring ZCC members in harmony, captioned with Kgotsong, which means may peace be upon you. While it might seem like an innocent appreciation of their singing skills, history shows Malema’s strategic intentions.
Throughout the years leading up to national elections, Malema has consistently aligned himself with influential churches, leveraging their large followings to boost his chances. From figures like Zibaah to Moboro, and now the Zion Christian Churches, this strategy has consistently paid off, as evident by the EFF’s strong presence in parliament.
The success raises questions about the ethical implications and whether Malema only seeks the church’s support when he has ulterior motives. Many ZCC churchgoers have rallied behind him, including coach Pitso Mosimane, pledging their support for the 2024 elections, feeling acknowledged by his outreach.
Julius Malema’s political maneuvering keeps him a formidable contender, ensuring he remains a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming 2024 elections.
