Mmusi Maimane and Julius Malema recently exchange virtual blows after Maimane high threw shade at South Africa's various political parties. While no specific names were mentioned, it was easy to tell that the party that "fuels anger" was Malema's party, the EFF, and Malema knew this too.

"The political parties are the biggest impediment to our progress. One party needs to stop looting, one needs to go to school, one needs to stop fuelling anger. The people need good governance and delivery. In this article I provide a solution," Maimane wrote in his tweet.

"Have courage," Malema responded to the tweet, which prompted this response from Maimane:

"Izapha Julius. This country cannot be led merely by the angry. We need people who want to truly return power to the people and not to take power from the ANC and then give it to themselves. That’s why direct elections are important. They empower the community. Not the party."

Many highly entertained South Africans had this to say about the two politicians' little exchange:

@Lesige_ said:

"If you really care about black people, donate all your salary to the poor for a year."

@afirikanman said:

"But Mmusi if he is not angry as a black person in this country, he has a serious problem. No one is fuelling anger, we're just angry."

@ThaboMofuli87 said:

"But Mmusi didn't say anything about individuals. He's talking about the political parties. Motho o leqhoko eo."

Malema is a Member of the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) and has alleged that one of the Constitutional Court judge candidates, Pillay, is “nothing but a political activist” whilst also questioning the judge candidate’s morals.

The outspoken EFF Commander in Chief questioned the judge whether the fact that she sat on a matter involving Standard Bank while owning shares in Nedbank might have implications on her morals and job or not.
