Not only does Helen Zille look like an apartheid spy, her dance moves also show that she misses apartheid. This was said by Julius Malema, the outspoken president of the ANC Youth League who was campaigning in Durban on Thursday.

Addressing workers at Toyota in Prospecton and students of Mangosuthu Technikon, Malema launched a verbal attack on the DA leader calling her a fake. "She is not original but is plastic and cannot stand in the heat. But when you look at her pictures before the makeover, she looks like an apartheid spy," said Malema.

Zille recently admitted that she had Botox cosmetic surgery to enhance her looks.

Still on the verbal warpath Malema labelled UDM leader Bantu Holomisa an "apartheid general" who was shown the door by the ANC because he could not work in a collective.

"He now runs a one man show. The UDM is an empty house and Holomisa is running up and down alone in that house."

Turning his attention to the IFP and its leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi, Malema said the IFP was not a political party, but a cultural organisation.

"They are a one-street party and their president is as good as a chairman of a street committee. They need to leave politics alone and focus on cultural issues."

Malema, who has constantly come under fire for his comments, was unapologetic saying he represented the voice of the youth.

"We say things that Zuma cannot say because he is a politician. We are not politicians, we are activists. It is our job to say to Helen Zille: 'shut up, you racist' when she starts attacking Zuma."

Meanwhile police had to use stun grenades to disperse a crowd of IFP-aligned students who blockaded the entrance at Mangosuthu Technikon as Malema and his entourage were leaving the institution.
