“Many of them came from poverty stricken backgrounds, many of them have never experienced a good Christmas,” he said.
“We thought it was important that we celebrate with the poor of the poorest. Make it a Christmas to remember,” said Malema
He encouraged his guests to focus on their education, and cautioned them against the use of drugs.
“Take education seriously, and respect your parents and educators,” was his message to children.
