This week I received the following offensive sms message on my phone:
Dear God: This year you took away my favourite singer – Michael Jackson, my favourite actress – Farah Fawcett, and my favourite actor – Patrick Swayze. Just thought I should let you know that Julius Malema is my favourite politician.
I was most offended by this message, because Michael Jackson is NOT my favourite singer and Julius Malema is NOT a politician. He’s a comedian!

Spokesman Zweli Mnisi said a threat analysis conducted by Crime Intelligence officers revealed that the ANC Youth League leader needed to be protected.

According to this source, it will cost taxpayers anything up to R300,000 a month to ensure no harm comes to Julius Malema.
