Not only has the CIC lost a few kilos but he has also inspired some his followers to choose a healthier lifestyle.

In case you haven’t noticed, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has lost weight and left many wondering how he did it.

His weight loss has earned him body-shaming comments from none other than Minister of Social Development Bathabile Dlamini. Responding to his murmurs in parliament, Dlamini said: “Okay … shut up, you slender for nonsense.”

She later denied body-shaming him, saying she was just happy he lost weight.

Now, one of his Twitter followers, Ramatlama, has shared how he was inspired by Malema’s weight loss. “Because of you I managed to lose weight, December 2016 I was at 96.56kg but today I’m at 85.43kg . Note I’m 29 years,” he tweeted Malema.

Malema shared the tweet with his followers, who in turn asked him for weight-loss tips.

Last year, EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi responded to comments on Malema’s weight loss and said the CIC was on a diet. He had reportedly exchanged “cooldrinks for cauliflower”.

Even sports scientist and controversial nutritionist Tim Noakes “weighed in” on the matter, saying that if the commander in chief was interested, he would give him a “real-meal revolution” that came with lots of butter to match Malema’s “real revolution” that comes with loads of berets.
