Julie Gichuru joins the #JuliusMalemaChallenge as she honors Winnie Mandela
Julie Gichuru has also jumped on the funny yet insightful #JuliusMalemaChallenge hashtag that has taken over Africans the past two days after leader of South Africa’s leftist party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema, attacked fellow Africans who betrayed Winnie Nomzamon Mandela.
Gichuru posted a section of a speech showing that women pay dearly for things men easily get away with. She was speaking in honor of Winnie who was buried two days ago.
“Yes, our mothers slog & strive then are blamed, accused, abused & abandoned when they are no longer needed, when they have already set a foundation. Men get away with everything but women are held accountable for anything. No one is perfect. No one. But women are held to a different standard,” Gichuru posted.
“As a mother of many sons I could not be more proud of Malema. I think Mama Nomzamo must be smiling. “Mama, you never told me how we must treat them when they come here. I am waiting for a signal Ma… Mama. Nomzamo.
They are here, in the funeral of a person they wanted to humiliate in front of the whole world.
They are here Mama… Ma,
I’m waiting for a signal on how we should treat them.”
