When, in that moment of weakness, Bateman compared Julius Malema to women’s private parts, do we understand this to mean he has so much hatred for him, women’s body parts he referred to, Malema’s ilk (meaning politicians generally), or Malema’s race? Would he have thought the same after interviewing Jacob Zuma, for example? Would he feel Mmusi Maimane is a better body part (of a woman or man?) because his politics are different to Malema’s? What kind of a body part would our president Cyril Ramaphosa be? Chances are that we will never now.
