Julius Malema began studying towards his diploma and then his degree when he was still part of the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC,) and facing disciplinary charges as the leader of that party’s  youth league.

In November 2011 Julius Malema was unable to be present when the verdict to his disciplinary hearing because he was writing his exams. That verdict would eventually lead to his expulsion in April 2012 after he lost the appeal and subsequently founded the political party that took him to parliament, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

While studying towards his degree Julius Malema founded the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), ran the election campaign which saw that party go to the national assembly, got married all the while facing corruption charges and fighting off SARS. “So it’s EFF, elections, it’s courts, it’s marriage… the guy is really strong like that,” Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said.

“The completion of this BA qualification amidst all other demands on him as a leader places him amongst the struggle heroes and heroines who never compromised to lead our people in the liberation struggle without academic qualifications,” Mbuyiseni Ndlozi was quoted.
