Julius Malema intends becoming a farmer.

In an interview with a local newspaper, the suspended Youth League leader admitted that his political career was over.

According to Malema, it is clear that the ANC leadership wants to get rid of him.

But he won’t leave without “putting up a fight”. Farming is close to his heart and he already has 20 cattle of his own.

In addition, Zimbabwean Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono has given him a herd of cattle.

The controversial politician is appealing his five-year suspension from the ANC for sowing divisions and bringing the party into disrepute.

Malema says the Hawks’ investigation of corruption charges against him and another probe by the Public Protector into his business dealings will give him an opportunity to identify his enemies.
