As Briefly.co.za reported previously, Fikile Mbalula took a jab at Mmusi Maimane and former DA leader Helen Zille.

The former police minister's post led to Maimane using Atul Gupta to shut him down. And we thought it was the end of it.

Well, apparently not. After Maimane posted on Twitter about his breakfast with Tony Leon, former DA leader and son of an apartheid judge, he received some negative feedback from Mr fear nothing himself.

Maimane's post praised the late Ramon Leon, the judge who denied Solomon Mahlangu’s appeal before he was sentenced to death in 1979.

So, Fiks, as Helen Zille called him, decided he was going to set the DA leader straight.

Maimane was not going to just back off, so he brought Atul Gupta back into the conversation.

This time, Mbalula wanted to have the last word in, so he told Maimane getting off the point is not going to help him with this one.

"Pastor Dumelang you’re aren’t dealing with the assertions I made - that of rewriting history and praising apartheid judges but you deflect with the usual soliloquy", Mbalula replied.

Their spat ended there, with the DA leader failing to respond.
