In an epic rant, Julius Malema used his Economic Freedom Fighters’ fourth anniversary speech on Saturday to hurl insults at, among others, President Jacob Zuma, former president Thabo Mbeki, whites and KwaZulu-Natal Indians.

Speaking to a crowd of about 7000 people at Curries Fountain in Durban, the EFF leader said President Jacob Zuma behaved like an “adolescent”, Higher Education and Training Minister and South African Communist Party general secretary Blade Nzimande was a coward who had spoken “under the influence of alcohol”, Mbeki was getting “old” and had lost touch with reality, and the province’s Indians treated blacks as if they were “sub-human”.
