Born on 3rd March 1981 in Seshego, Limpopo, Malema was looked after by his mother only who worked as a domestic worker. He fared quite poorly in academics and joined politics at a very early age. By the time he reached fourteen, he became the chairperson of ANCYL branch of Seshego as well as the regional chairperson in 1997.
Known for his controversial statements, Malema has frequently been targeted for lampooning.
