It seems the raised profile of SA's politicians goes hand in hand with raised paranoia.
We have all come to expect a Julius sideshow at any political event that garners TV coverage with the annual SONA address being a prime example. This year; CR neatly sidestepped any potential heckling from the EFF thug brigade by addressing Juju directly and publicly and forcing him to chuckle on camera. But this publicity hog wouldn't be outdone; a quick "assassination attempt on EFF's CiC"(sic) was hatched and the thug mentality was let loose to assault male and female security staff.
to Juju's immense credit he decided on gender equality and he assaulted a woman.
