South African political leader and businessman Julius Malema has been all over our timelines for the last week. This is due to the nationwide protest orchestrated by the EFF that will reportedly take place on Monday 20 March. During one of his speeches discussing the protest, Malema shared that load shedding — one of the reasons for the strike — is forcing people to eat from fast food restaurant KFC. He then added that he doesn’t even eat KFC and in fact, hates the smell.

His thoughts on the fast restaurant spread far and wide on social media causing a number of people to drag him.

He also added that he doesn’t like the fast food because “it smells bad”.

While Malema has a fair amount of supporters, he also had an equal amount of critics who don’t waste any time telling him where to get off whenever he says something they don’t agree with.

This was once again the case for the party leader who was dragged thoroughly online for his comments about KFC.
