This makes him 37 years old as of 2018. He is the youngest of five children born to his mother, who was a domestic worker, and his father, who was a police officer. Malema’s parents divorced when he was nine, and he was raised by his mother in the rural village of Seshego. He has three sisters and one brother.
Malema attended primary school in Seshego, and then went on to high school at Mphaphuli High School in Polokwane. After graduating, he studied at the University of Limpopo, where he obtained a National Diploma in Youth Development in 2001. He then went on to complete a bachelor’s degree in African Politics in 2005.
Malema became involved in politics at an early age. He joined the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) in 1993, when he was just 12 years old. He quickly rose through the ranks of the ANCYL, and was elected as the provincial chairperson of the Limpopo branch in 1998. In 2001, he was elected as the national president of the ANCYL, becoming the youngest person to ever hold that position.
As the leader of the ANCYL, Malema was a vocal critic of the government of South African President Jacob Zuma. In 2008, he was expelled from the ANC for bringing the party into disrepute. Undeterred, he formed his own political party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), in 2013. The EFF has become a major force in South African politics, and currently has 25 seats in the country’s parliament.
Malema remains a controversial figure, due to his often inflammatory rhetoric and his history of corruption. In 2016, he was found guilty of money laundering and given a suspended sentence. He is currently facing charges of fraud, tax evasion, and racketeering.
