- The BLF has threatened to take away land owned by Micasa’s J’Something
- Malema sparked the debate when he jokingly tweeted that the musician would be fine if the EFF came into power
- J’Something had not taunted the EFF leader nor had he participated in the squabble in any way, shape or form
J’Something landed up in the middle of a debate between the BLF and EFF over whether or not the Micasa frontman should be able to keep his property if either one of the party’s should win the upcoming election.
J’something was minding his own business, possibly cooking or playing some music, when he unknowingly became the central point of a heated debate between Malema and Mngxitama over Twitter.
While there has always been bad blood between the two parties and their leaders, no one is truly sure about why the musician was dragged into it.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Malema has been outspoken about the EEF’s plan, if they are elected, is to seize every bit of land and then rent it out to South Africans, however after his tweet, many of the party’s followers and critics are wondering how serious he is about his policy.
The EFF’s land policy has been under scrutiny since it was announced, but South Africans have been calling Malema out for some of the terms, for example, if all land is expropriated, what happens to the land that is given to tribal authorities.
The Citizen reports that after seeing his tweet, Malema came under fire for sparing some white land owners such as J’Something and Christo Thurston, while others saw the lighter side and played along with his remark.
Andile Mngxitama was riled up by Malema’s tweet and threatened to go out of their way to take away the singer’s land first if he ever got into power as he believes that no white people should have the rights to land.
