South Africa’s infamous middle-aged lion and president of the ANCYL, Julius Malema, snatched back the media limelight recently. He made a bold statement calling on black women to make more babies, claiming that having babies is a revolutionary thing.
Wonkie, unlike those in traditional media, believes that Mr Malema’s comments should be taken in context. After all, clearly some context must exist that would make his comments appropriate and sensible. Wonkie brought together some of the best brains in South Africa to fathom, debate and discuss Julius’s somewhat controversial strategy. The following are some of the key points Wonkie’s think tank came up with:
1. Judging by the ongoing North African revolutions, there is an argument to be made that revolution is ultimately a numbers game. For example, had the rebels in Libya shared Malema’s vision and reproduced more, they would not be getting beaten down as easily by Colonel Gaddafi’s forces now.
2. Some of the major religions in the world have established their dominance by adopting a similar reproductive strategy. Think the Vatican and Catholic family planning, as but one example.
3. Nationalisation and protectionism of any sort, has internationally proven to increase overall system inefficiencies. If South Africa moves down the nationalisation route as the ANCYL advocates, then there will likely be much potential for introducing inefficiency through labour. Wonkie was initially thinking something in the order of at least 15%, but if Mr Malema’s vision is more aggressive, South Africa may well need to double its population within the next decade.
4. According to Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation address in February, currently just over 30% of the total South African population benefits from some state-provided social grant. Unconfirmed sources have suggested that Julius could well be setting a stretch target to increase this figure to 45% by 2016.
“We need to ensure, that as much tax money as is set aside in the government budget for social grants, be allocated to previously disadvantaged South Africans. What better way to ensure that, than by reproducing like mad to create more previously disadvantaged South Africans… it’s just logical.”

5. Finally, economic freedom fighting is not a destination – it’s a journey. So people should go on and enjoy the ride – so to speak. Who on earth said that revolutions can’t be fun?
Go forth, and procreate.
