Poking fun at staunch ANC supporter and Kwaito artist Arthur Mafokate as well as Afro Pop singer Kelly Khumalo‚ Malema labelled their songs as “expired”.

“We have seen [the ANC] spend a billion rand on fake celebrities‚ extremely fake celebrities who can’t succeed in their own right‚” said Malema.

“As I speak‚ I’m trying to think what is Kelly Khumalo’s hit… what is she known for? But she is pocketing between ten thousand and fifteen thousand rands for every appearance she makes at an ANC event‚” said Malema.

Malema’s attacks come after ANC head of elections Nomvula Mokonyane was recently heard stating on record‚ that the ANC has spent over a billion rand in the 2016 local government election campaign‚ although this was subsequently denied by the party’s treasurer general Zweli Mkhize.

The EFF leader said some artists even took to Twitter to brag that they make more when they have their own shows than they receive from the ANC.

“The ANC spends thousands of rands on useless‚ expired artists such as Arthur Mafokate to perform and sing songs that aren’t even trending in this day and age – but he gets ten thousand for expired songs‚” added Malema.

He accused the ANC of prioritising artists over people’s needs. He said instead of giving people basic needs such as proper houses and sanitary toilets‚ they spend it on unnecessary things.

Malema was conducting a few community meetings in Tshwane on Thursday.
