As Briefly.co.za reported earlier, Mmusi Maimane made headlines when he compared himself to the father of the nation, the late Nelson Mandela.

In a video that went viral on social media, Maimane is heard saying that people often refer to him as "mini-Mandela."

"He said: I want to ask you — which party would Nelson Mandela have dreamt of? People phone me. They are on Twitter, they are on Facebook. They say Mmusi Maimane, you are a mini-Mandela.", he was heard saying in the video.

Juju took a dig at the DA leader in response to an article by the Sunday Times, where an anonymous Hogarth accused Maimane of not having his own political identity.

Maimane has been called a mini-Obama for his impersonation of the former American president, and tweeps now dubbed him a second Julius Malema after the video of him referring to himself as a Mini-Madiba went viral, in which he sounds like Juju.

It prompted the EFF leader to take a jab at Maimane, tagging him in a post by Richard Branson.

The post read: "You were born an original. Don't die a copy."

Tweeps quickly picked up on Juju's dig, and they weighed in. But, the EFF leader was not planning on taking his roast of Maimane any further, so he just did not respond.
