Fikile Mbalula called Carl Niehaus a 'crook' in a recent social media quarrel and called on the ANC to 'deal with' it.
On Tuesday, Carl Niehaus fired shots at Fikile Mbalula, calling him a coward who has no respect for his elders.
"Hmmm so this young chap, Mr. Fearfokkol , @MbalulaFikile, has gone & blocked me. He seems to fear much, especially engagement about his blatant opportunism, careerism & lack of repect for his seniors, such as the SG of the ANC, comrade @Magashule_Ace. Talk about real cowardice!" Niehaus wrote on Twitter.
The post sparked a response from Derek Hanekom, who called Niehaus out on allegedly 'stealing' money from the people.
"Carl, let's rather talk about the money you took from people with your story about having bone marrow cancer. A Deputy Minister even went to the funeral of your mother, only to discover that she was still alive," Hanekom fired back.
Briefly.co.za gathered Mbalula retweeted Hanekom's fiery clap-back and added his two cents' worth on Niehaus' tweet.
"What is he doing at Luthuli House? Employed to insult leaders of the ANC, masquerading as former mk when he is never being," Mbaks wrote.
Mbaweezy also directly replied to Niehaus' message, calling him a crook who has no place at Luthuli House.
"You are a crook, what the hell you doing at Luthuli House is still a mystery to us, now that we are done with elections we must deal with you," he wrote.
