Tough talking South African revolutionist Julius Malema has accused Kenya of not being able to liberate its self from the White’s man rule fully.

Malema’s comments come immediately after President Uhuru Kenyatta made a trip to the United States of America where he met his counterpart President Donald Trump and had discussion that revolved around, trade, security and bilateral relations between the two states.

The Economic Freedom Fighters leader went to the extent of calling for the withdrawal of South Africa from the Commonwealth.

Without mincing his words, Malema took a jibe at the Kenyan and Zimbabwean Judiciary for donning the white wig which he compared to the white man’s hair citing that it’s a symbol of colonialism.

“Does it mean you can only think when you wear a wig that looks like the hair of white people? You’re actually wearing white brains. The reason you don’t think properly is because of that wig according to colonialism,” he said. 

The firebrand revolutionist lashed out at the two former British colonies for not getting rid of the wigs citing Kenya in itself has been tied by America’s interests in the country.
“Revolutionists allow that to continue in Zimbabwe, they allow that to continue in Kenya..well Kenya, of course, is something different.

I don’t think there is total independence there. America has got huge interest in that arrangement of Kenya,” added Malema.
Kenya’s former self-styled Chief Justice Will Mutunga brought huge changes in the Judiciary by advocating for the abolishment of the use of the white wig worn by judges. In Kenya’s top court since its inception, judges have not been donning the head gear when sitting on the bench.

Malema did not hold back his sentiments as accused he also accused academics and lawyers who still wear the wig.
“And including some scholars who are lawyers they are still wearing those things and come and lecture us about decolonization wearing a wig,” wondered Malema.
