"You've got no sense of self-contradiction," Gungubele said, according to The Citizen. "A leader who does not have a sense of self-contradiction is a very dangerous leader."

Gungubele was referring to the fact that the EFF used to defend Pravin Gordhan back when Gordhan still served as finance minister, has gathered. Now, in recent weeks the EFF has been highly critical Gordhan, even going so far as to disrupt his speeches and call for him to step aside. 

Gungubele added that he was "shocked" by the EFF's drastic change in their stance toward Gordhan, as well as toward the Public Protector.

"I don't know what you stand for," Gungubele said to Malema.

Gungubele did not stop there, however. He continued to fire salvo after salvo at the Red Berets. He dismissed them as a "cult" and that their political positions were determined by whoever "puts money in your pocket". 

Malema also traded insults with Gungubele, at one point calling him "intellectually challenged".
