Lol, ‘Malema’ graces the cover of ‘True Love’

Citizen reporter

Perhaps the CIC should consider just getting a weave to see if these photoshopped photos of him will stop.

EFF leader Julius Malema is pictured addressing a press briefing at the party’s head office in Braamfontein, Johannesburg 14 February 2017.

Being a politician must be the toughest job in the world, especially in Mzansi, where there is absolutely no chill. Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema is often the victim of fake news and hack job Photoshop makeovers, but this one takes the trophy.

There is now a photoshopped picture on the cover of True Love magazine, with Malema’s face replacing that of Lerato Kganyago. The result leaves the CIC with a weave in a green dress showing the sort of cleavage that does not scream politics.

The picture was shared by a Twitter user who was not impressed with home affairs spokesperson Mayihlome Tshwete confirming that an earlier story about Malema had been fake.

“@MTshwete Must u really take the  fun away ke ngok from this, besides Mamgobhozi derives his joy from these kind of stories,” they said.

The CIC has been a victim of Photoshop before. In a different picture, he was given a weave and lipstick. Take a look below.
