Malema ate sushi off naked women with me – Kenny Kunene

The Sushi King says he introduced the then ANC Youth League leader to the idea, and he claims Malema partook.

Self-confessed king of sushi Kenny Kunene on Tuesday revealed that Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema apparently used to enjoy eating sushi off naked women too.

The practice of eating the Japanese raw-fish delicacy off the bodies of women is called nyotaimori and was controversial in 2010 when Kunene made headlines for doing it at his ZAR nightclub on his 40th birthday.

Malema, during his ANC Youth League days, used to be a regular at ZAR in Sandton on the roof of the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel.

Kunene said that, after eating his dish off naked, beautiful models, the “economic freedom fighter” would wash it down with 18-year-old Johnnie Walker.

The businessman tweeted a bit of a throwback picture of himself with the “CIC”, both of them in white suits, as Kunene reminisced about his first “sushi party”.

Kunene, who used to be friends with Malema (they have since fallen out very publicly), says that while the “son of the soil” was devouring sushi off naked women, he also treated himself to expensive “Ace of Spades” Champagne.

Kunene was a founder member of the EFF, along with Malema and Floyd Shivambu, in 2013. In 2014, the Sushi King threw an expensive party after he decided to turn his back on politics completely. The party at Taboo nighclub was called Nyotaimori, and involved hundreds of people hovering over tables where Kunene’s models lay with only pieces of sushi covering their private parts.

Kunene, who described it as “an experience of a lifetime”, told The Citizen “nyotaimori is done all the time in Japan and in many other countries”.
