- Julius Malema tweeted a screenshot purportedly of an AfriForum bulk SMS
- In the SMS, AfriForum calls for donations to help their legal cases against Malema
- In response to the SMS, Malema poked fun at the lobby group
EFF leader Julius Malema shared a screenshot on Twitter of a bulk SMS, which appears to have been sent by Afrikaans lobby group AfriForum.
"Malema must pay. AfriForum and Gerri Nel will continue putting pressure and following up privately. Your contributions and membership makes this possible. Join by answering with YES," the SMS reads.
This comes after AfriForum held a press conference in which they announced that they would be privately prosecuting Malema on charges relating to alleged tender fraud.
AfriForum will also be prosecuting Malema regarding the EFF leader's alleged assault of police officer, as well as his alleged firing of an assault rifle at one of his birthday celebrations, according to The Citizen.
In response to the AfriForum screenshot, Malema wrote, "The Boers are busy guys…".
This is not the first time that Malema and AfriForum have criticised one another on social media. Just this week, Malema posted a video on Twitter making fun of AfriForum. This appeared to be in response to AfriForum displaying a banner at their press conference which read: "Is Malema going to jail soon?"
AfriForum's Ernst Roets replied to Malema's tweet, saying, "Julius, it's not personal. It's only because of your inclination to criminality."
Malema then hit back, writing, "You are a small boy and everything about you and your team is small."
