In his other lives, he is the southern hemisphere's only supporter of Cambridge United Football Club, and was once upon a time the South African National Spoofing Champion. He has played football at Wembley and cricket at Lord's within the same weekend, but troubled the scorer on neither occasion. Things could only go up from here.

ANC Youth League president Julius Malema failed to show up at a scheduled appearance in Alexandra to speak at the Southern African Music conference on Tuesday. ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu confirmed to journalists that Malema was at a meeting between the Youth League and the ANC's top six officials (this despite the fact that President Jacob Zuma was in Cape Town on Tuesday). Shivambu said it was a general meeting, and would not provide specifics of the agenda. Malema may reschedule his address to the Southern African music conference to Wednesday.
