Twitter users were left dumbfounded after they spotted Atul Gupta retweeted Julius Malema's tweet.
On Monday, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader made a tweet which indicated there might be a conspiracy in regard to the location of the State Capture Inquiry.
He wrote: "#StateCaptureInquiry is taking place at Tiso Blackstar building, interesting..."
The Citizen reported Juju has slammed the Tiso Blackstar media group several times in the past, dubbing them the mouth piece of white monopoly capital- a statement the controversial Gupta family and BLF agreed with.
And, it appeared the Guptas yet again agreed with Malema. Tweeps spotted Atul Gupta retweeted Juju's 'interesting' tweet about the location of the state capture inquiry.
Briefly.co.za gathered tweeps were left surprised since the Guptas and the EFF do not sit around the same fire and some even said they smelt a rat.
Riley, who goes by the Twitter handle @Riley93810091, commented: "Atul gupta is retweeing malema ,I smell a rat."
Another tweep, @GlennfromZA, wrote: "Atul loves Julius. Both of them favorite hobby is to steal from the taxpayers."
Journalist Ranjeni Munusamy called out Juju, asking him if it was not ironic that Atul retweeted him. Munusamy's question to Malema resulted in a Twitter battle between the two.
"It’s ironic that Atul Gupta is retweeting you. Looking for you for what?" Munusamy wrote.
