Journalist Stephen Letoo has extended a cordial invitation to Julius Malema, the leader of South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters, for a housewarming event scheduled for October in Kilgoris, Narok County.
In the formal invitation, Letoo, a political correspondent, revealed that the occasion would also serve as his thanksgiving ceremony .
“I Stephen Letoo, political affairs journalist at Citizen TV would like to invite you Julius Sello Malema C.I.C, Economic Freedom Fighters South Africa for my thanksgiving ceremony and housewarming event that will take place in Enooretet Village in Kilgoris, Narok, on October 13, 10 am,” the invite reads in part.
Renowned for his impassioned and eloquent speeches, Malema has left a significant impact with his candid demeanor.
“Welcome to Kilgoris, Malema,” Letoo warmly expressed in a social media caption accompanying the invitation.
His entry into the national political scene began as the president of the African National Congress Youth League from 2008 to 2012, a tenure that ended in his expulsion.
In 2014, Malema secured a position as a Member of Parliament in the National Assembly. This came a year after he assumed leadership of the Economic Freedom Fighters, a progressive political party he played a pivotal role in launching back in 2013.
Letoo has been in the media for slightly over a decade and his knowledge of current affairs is impressive.
Most notable is his coverage of politicians traversing the country ahead of the August 9 polls.
Speaking at an interview, the RMS journalist recalled that moment a good friend helped him secure an opportunity at Citizen TV.
He revealed that the friend was a former classmate who was a news director at the time and secured for him a position as an intern, as he continued with his education at the University of Nairobi (UoN).
“One of my classmates was a news director and he saw that I had a passion for journalism. He made plans for me to enroll at RMS. After four months, I perfected my craft.” he told
“I would utilise my opportunity by arriving early enough to handle morning tasks before other journalists arrived. They would look for someone to do the assignment and since others were not in the office, I would be the one selected,” Letoo added.
