The EFF and its leader Julius Malema strongly wants the public to believe that the party associates itself with the poor, even trying to “resemble” them by dressing like construction workers and domestic workers, but they are living a lavish lifestyle behind the scenes.
Julius Malema has recently proved that he does not practice what he preaches as he was pictured sitting in the luxury of business class during a domestic flight. He was also accused of taking in a few sips of Moet, a rich brand of champagne when this picture was posted on social media.

Flying in business class goes with the job of being a high-ranking politician but not when you’re the leader of the hard-left socialist movement, enjoying the finer things in life when the economy is at it lowest while millions of people you claim to be fighting for fail to put food on the table is not a sign that you fighting for equality. Is this not a definite sign of hypocrisy?
This is definitely not the first nor the last time that the EFF members will throw their lavish lifestyle in the faces of the poor and oppressed South Africans.
EFF members were previously being accused of wearing “Gucci overalls”. A couple of months ago, members of the party were chastised for staying in expensive Camps Bay accommodation ahead of SONA 2019. A dive through their bins – ethical or not – also revealed first-class flight tickets and vast receipts from H&M.
Daily Maverick published an article looking into the contents of trash allegedly left out by EFF members. Heaps of expensive bottles of liquor were found, in total 37 bottles. The fighters allegedly spent at least R25,000 on French champagne brands such as Veuve Clicquot and Moët & Chandon. A bottle of Veuve Clicquot retails for about R600 and Moët Nectar Imperial will set you back around R700. Bottles of Glenfiddich whiskey (special edition at R1,500 a bottle) were also found.
What a champagne capitalist leaving the poor poorer whilst the rich EFF leaders lavish themselves in style and comfort. Well, this is simple hypocrisy and the EFF followers have been enticed by empty promises not to see this.
No one is saying Malema mustn’t enjoy his money but he must stop being a hypocrite. He preaches about socialism but fails to live up to that system which he Advocates & rather opted to paddle with capitalism.
