"Being involved in business compromises the independence of the ANCYL because every time you open your mouth you must check if business will be happy or not," Malema said.
Inspiring the youth:
"I'm not corrupt… I must restore the faith of South Africa's youth by entering the business world."
On his finances:
The ANCYL said that Malema was "willing to clarify anything that will be brought to him within the country's laws".
Okay, what about the government tenders?
"What gives you the power to ask me that question? Let me tell you, I do not owe you any answer, to be honest. I am not accountable to you... I am accountable to the ANCYL and ANC." Malema went on to say "there is no law that says politicians can't be businessmen".
On his Mercedes-Benz (which costs R814 000):
"This car I own is nothing compared to the cars of white kids, sports cars they play with in Sandton every Sunday… There's no corruption because they are white, if they are to be driven by any African child all of them will be investigated, all of them would be front pages. You don't want a black diamond to shine... you'll never succeed with us."
"I didn't join the struggle to become a rich man. I must change the lives of my people, and nobody will stop me."
…Which is why Julius drinks Moët
"I'm still living in poverty today, because as long as a neighbour of mine is struggling, I, too, am struggling," Malema told the elderly crowd, shortly before popping the cork of a bottle of Moët et Chandon Rosé which costs R703 a bottle, according to Caroline's Fine Wines.
On getting preferential treatment by police:
"Who do you think you are? Don't you know that I am Julius, president of the ANCYL?" Malema apparently said to the traffic officers, after being stopped for using a blue light.
On women and rape:
"When a woman didn't enjoy it, she leaves early in the morning. Those who had a nice time will wait until the sun comes out, request breakfast and ask for taxi money."
On racism at UFS:
"There is an evil spirit at the UFS. The evil spirit must be confronted, that evil spirit is deep-rooted at the university and that is racism," he said.
On keepin' it real:
"She must use her fake accent to address our problems," Malema said about Education Minister Naledi Pandor.
