The BBC’s Jonah Fisher was booted out of an ANC Youth League press conference by the movement’s president, Julius Malema. Reporting back from his trip to Zimbabwe, Malema criticised the Zimbabwean opposition MDC for making statements from its “air-conditioned” Sandton offices in Johannesburg.
From further back in the room, Fisher pointed out that Malema also lived in Sandton. And so, a torrent of abuse was unleashed in which Malema called security, labelled the journalist a “bastard” and “bloody agent” and accused him of displaying a “white tendency”.
Watch Malema’s mesmerising performance, filmed by the Sowetan, here.
