Julius Malema is one of South Africa’s most divisive political leaders. While he has many detractors, he also has nearly as many supporters. He also has a substantial bank account. Nhlanhla “Lux” Mohlauli, another prominent political leader, is best known for spearheading the Operation Dudula Movement, which was dedicated to removing foreigners from their homes in South Africa and demanding that they return to their home countries.
When he isn’t fighting foreigners, the Soweto-born activist lives a comfortable life with a sizable bank account.
MALEMA VS NHLANHLA LUX: WHO HAS MORE MOOLA
Julius Malema has built himself a reputation as one of South Africa’s most outspoken politicians.
The current Economic Freedom Fighter first rose to prominence in the political sphere as an ANC member and Jacob Zuma’s right-hand man.
These days he is less like a wingman and more like a frontline man leading his team of millions of supporters.
With fame came a whole lot of money and expensive clothes and cars — as one would expect.
But exactly how much does Malema have in the bank?
According to Zalebs, Malema is worth a cool R45 million.
HOW DOES THE OPPOSITION FAIR?
Nhlanha Lux had been an activist for years but only shot to prominence with his views on foreigners living in South Africa.
He quickly built a large group of followers who looked up to him and admire his rags-to-riches story having found considerable success within the aviation industry reportedly renting private jets and planes to high-end clients.
He is also a pilot and an esteemed businessman.
Indeed, things were not always looking up for Nhlanhla whose mother reportedly worked as a domestic cleaner.
Speaking about his childhood, Nhlanhla remembered having a lot less than most.
“I would see kids with boxes of lunches that were much bigger and healthier than what my family could eat,” he previously told Africa News.
Those days are long behind Nhlanhla who is worth an estimated R18 million – not bad but not quite the winner of this versus battle.
