Say what you will, but Julius knows how to dress for the occasion…
As most of us know, on Thursday/ Friday the ANC Youth League and lots of other people embarked on the Long Walk to Economic Freedom (or a practise run of the Comrades Marathon, as some would say… pun intended).
For that event, Julius ‘Juju’ Malema busted out his Freedom Fighter outfit: beret, revolutionary T-shirt (I myself don an Idi Amin tee when I’m feeling rather sociopolitical), cargos, boots. I was impressed. It wasn’t the first time Juju had gone all out in his Che Guevara/ MK vet kit. He’d worn it previously on the first day of his disciplinary hearing a few months back.
He was at war with the Mother Party at the time, and last week he was at war with the Capitalists. He had to wear something fitting (rather tightly, might I add).
Almost immediately after helping a few thousand youths make their demands heard to The Man, Juju then jetted off to sunny Mauritius, to party with the, er, Capitalists. But surely you didn’t expect him to wear his beret and boots, did you? How inappropriate would that have been?
The man had to keep in the theme of gaudiness and Capitalism. So, he showed up dressed like a pimp. All he needed was a pimp stick and a pimp cup. Like a true fashionista, Julius HAD to stand out.
I’m sure that purple suit, ugly as it was, cost the price of a second-hand car. So, if you’re a pedestrian, don’t hate. Julius could have bought you a car if he wanted. He just chose to get a purple suit instead. Here’s hoping he didn’t out-dress the bride. That would have been downright nasty.
Wow… lifestyles of the economically oppressed… I love it! If ever anybody needed evidence to prove Julius is a good role model… this suit would be it!
Now that’s one funky looking suit – at least now that Julius is out of the ANC for some time he’s already all kitted out to roam the streets Las Vegas, or more likely of Hillbrow for that matter.
Was this for a Halloween party last month?
