FULL THREAD: “Folly Of Making Populist Statements,” Mliswa Speaks As Malema Praises Grace Mugabe

Norton legislator (independent), Temba Mliswa has criticised Julius Malema, leader of South Africa opposition party, Economic Freedom Fighters for praising former first lady, Grace Mugabe. Malema who was paying his last respects to the late founding leader of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe at the Blue Roof, Mugabe family’s residence, had described Grace as a strong woman.

The praises did not auger well with Mliswa who was reportedly barred from seeing Grace at the same time Malema was at the Blue Roof. Posting on microblogging site, Twitter, Mliswa said:

1/ youtu.be/57DR92aG-4I @Julius_S_Malema I was interested to understand your definition of tormentors…. Oh & by the way, is this strong lady you refer to the same one who displayed such strength beating up a young SA girl, strange you didn’t seem to comment on that….

2/ youtu.be/eNyNo1haB1E for one who was so vocal against the corruption of @PresJGZuma & talks of opportunism you’re strangely quiet about the 5 Norton farms this “strong woman” has or of the money allegedly stolen by @ProfJNMoyo in Zim & SA..

3/ Interesting to note was the “G40” presence that greeted your arrival. Was there any particular reason this visit was made in the absence of @edmnangagwa & that respects were not paid to either himself or his office as protocol dictates?

4/ No small surprise the presence of a certain group of Zimbabweans at the service for the late RGM at @OrlandoStadium recently.

5/ The folly of making populist statements is 1. They must appeal to the majority & 2. They mustn’t allow you to lose credibility from those whose popularity you seek.

6/ The strong woman’s strength was in the abuse of people & making their lives miserable. The empty National Sports stadium bares testimony to her unpopularity

7/ As my brother & comrade @Julius_S_Malema I celebrate & encourage your successes but where you cross the line I must be blunt.
8/ Our history indicates the way true comrades & heroes were demeaned upon passing by RGM. Maybe you’re not familiar with stories of Nkomo being forced to flee the country in a dress & other incidents

  1. Go on Temba go. …..the list of folly is endless. While I applaud him on xenophobia stance he better focus his energy on helping address the state capture effects brought bout by the Guptas. What interests has he in attending or consoling the Mugabes in the absence of our president.? Grace is so cunning..wait until she pulls another one on Obasanjo the same way Graca did on our Mandela.
