Will Malema say sorry?

From News @ iAfrica:

2662-6436-0-0_1755032 ANC Youth League president Julius Malema is expected to appear in the Equality Court in Johannesburg on Friday over a statement he made about a woman who laid a rape charge against President Jacob Zuma.

In his defence on Thursday, his lawyer said the comment was directed specifically at the woman who made the charge, and that it was based on comments made by the judge who acquitted Zuma.

The Sonke Gender Justice Network laid a complaint of hate speech, discrimination and harassment against Malema, saying the comments perpetuated myths and stereotypes on rape.

They want a full apology and R50 000 in damages to be paid to a shelter for abused women.

In January this year, Malema reportedly told students at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology that President Jacob Zuma's rape accuser would not have stayed for breakfast if she had not enjoyed the sex.

"Those who had a nice time will wait until the sun comes out, request breakfast and ask for taxi money. In the morning, that lady requested breakfast and taxi money," Malema said.

I can only conclude that Malema is a glutton for punishment.  Apart from being a total moron…
