A video was shared on social media which showed Fikile Mbalula praising Julius Malema for his straight forwardness. The former SAPS minister went on to talk about their friendship while both were in the ANC Youth League.
Julius Malema is a lot of things, but he is not a fake - at least that's what Fikile Mbalula was heard saying in a video on Monday.
Twitter parody account Man's Not Barry Roux shared a video of Mbaks talking about Juju and how he always speak the truth - even when people do not want to hear it.
Mbalula said Malema tells him things he does not want to hear, even though they are 'good buddies' and 'tight like nobody's business.'
Briefly.co.za saw the video sparked quite the reaction and tweeps gave their two cents' worth in the comment section.
Twitter user @kgotsoaubrey commented: "Nice....This is what constructive criticism aims to do...@MbalulaFikile Thanks. mara Come may 8 Asijiki #EFF ALL THE WAY."
Siphelo "Peli" Tywabi, @Peli_Peli07, added: "That's what we like about him, hence we are voting EFF!!"
Tilda Wale Sandawana, who goes by the Twitter handle @tildahorns, commented: "Juju is that guy that we all need in our lives who tells you things you don't wanna hear,who builds you by telling you your mistakes love him or hate him ke Juju Son of the soil."
