Julius Malema officially turned 40 on Wednesday, and the birthday messages came flooding in throughout the day. Indeed, anyone following the EFF’s official Twitter feed was treated to a propaganda barrage that could make a North Korean blush. Adulation has been heaped upon the firebrand politician – not least from the Red Berets who are based abroad.

What other countries do the EFF have parties in?

Depending on your political stance, the idea of ‘multiple EFF parties’ is either a delight or a terror. Undeniably, however, it is a genuine reality. At least six other nations have established political parties under the same ideological values presented by Julius Malema – and some of their MPs have even been elected to Parliaments outside of South Africa.

In a gushing statement published earlier in the day, our domestic branch of the EFF claimed that reaching 40 was an achievement in itself, given that a lot of ‘revolutionary leaders’ are assassinated before reaching this landmark age. High praise indeed, which is making us think twice about merely ‘phoning it in’ the next time we have to write a birthday card…
