how old is malema


Malema was born on 3 March 1981 in Seshego, Limpopo. He is the youngest of six children born to mother, Matshepo Malema, and father, Keketso Malema. His father died when he was only nine years old, and his mother worked as a domestic worker to support the family. Malema attended primary school at Seshego No. 2 and completed his matric at Mphephu High School.

Malema has been active in politics from a young age. He joined the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) in 1995, and was elected as its Provincial Secretary for Education in 1999. In 2001, he was elected as the National Spokesperson of the ANCYL, and in 2005 he was elected as its President.

Under Malema’s leadership, the ANCYL became increasingly critical of the ANC government, and he was a vocal supporter of Jacob Zuma in the run-up to the 2009 ANC Presidential election. After Zuma was elected as President, Malema was appointed as the head of the National Youth Development Agency.

However, relations between Malema and Zuma deteriorated, and in 2011 Malema was expelled from the ANC. He then formed his own political party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), which has become one of the most popular opposition parties in South Africa.

Malema remains a controversial figure, and is often accused of inciting violence. However, he remains popular with many South Africans, particularly young people, who see him as a bold and fearless leader.

So, how old is Malema? He is currently 38 years old.

Malema is 37 years old.
