Early life[edit] Floyd Shivambu was born in the rural village of Mahonisi, Malamulele region of Limpopo province South Africa and was one of seven children. Due to rural poverty he grew up in a house without running water or electricity. His parents earned a living as informal traders selling hand made duvets and pillowcases in nearby towns. Shivambu graduated from the Mphambo High School in Malamulele in 2001, and went on to study at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg initially intending to study to become a technician.[1] He changed academic focus and instead earned a bachelor's degree as well as an Honours Degree in Political Studies and International Relations.[2][3][4][5] Shivambu went on to graduated with a master's degree, with distinction, in political studies in 2014.[6] In his third year at the University of the Witwatersrand Shivambu was elected president of the university's Student Representative Body and joined the African National Congress Youth League.[1] Political career[edit]

He co-edited a book about Malema, titled The Coming Revolution. Controversies[edit] In 2011, Shivambu was ousted from his position as ANC Youth League spokesman by an ANC disciplinary hearing, after he swore at a journalist, and after making comments about helping to bring about regime change in Botswana.[7][8] On 20 March 2018, Shivambu was filmed attacking a journalist outside Parliament.[9] References[edit]
