Mzansi social media users have had mixed reactions to a picture of Julius Malema's wife posted by an EFF communications manager on social media.
Sixo Gcilishe posted the picture and captioned it: "A Fighter with the incoming First Lady of the Republic of South Africa." This has sparked some controversy on the Twitter streets.
Some reactions were very positive, with Twitter user kabeloWaka2 saying:
"This one, she's a lady! SA has had first grandmas calling them first ladies."
Another social media user, Gennoto13, said:
"So lovely too see the Incoming First Lady of the Republic of South Africa Mrs Mantwa Matlala-Malema. We are led indeed. That's why I'm voting @EFFSouthAfrica in making sure the intellectual Cic @Julius_S_Malema becomes our State President to liberate us Africans from poverty."
Other reactions, however, were not so welcoming to the statement. Themba said:
"No point even saying ‘dream on’; incoming 1st lady? Pipe dream!"
While Vuyiswa Mhlongo said:
"Lol that's impossible though"
