On a recent trip to the United States , Julius Malema, President of the African National Congress Youth League, addressed a major gathering of Red Indians. He spoke for almost an hour on his plans for South Africa . At the conclusion of his speech, the crowd presented him with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - Walking Eagle. A very chuffed Malema then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds. A news reporter later asked one of the Indians how they came to select the new name given to Malema. They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of sheet that it can no longer fly.
