On Tuesday, Briefly.co.za reported earlier that AfriForum and Ernst Roets have been found not guilty after the latter posted the old SA flag on social media.
Taking to social media, Julius Malema reacted to the ruling by sharing a throwback post he wrote at the time of Roets' apartheid flag tweet.
"They should have allocated that case of the apartheid flag to a white Judge, wanted to see something," he wrote at the time.
Reacting to the ruling, the EFF leader commented on the post with an "I told you so" type of message.
"Remember what I said," he commented.
The post sparked a massive reaction and tweeps gave their two cents' worth on the EFF leader's comment.
Mandla Mtshweni, who goes by the Twitter handle @MandlaMtshweni2, commented:
"Judiciary was captured long ago and now it's going to be worse since there's a fight against WCM, we need to boycott the courts and fight African style."
Social media user, @MmuiWabatho, wrote:
"You never lie to us. The captured judiciary and its apartheid tendencies."
Another tweep, @MxolisiY, added:
"Some of us are not interested in your racism inhibit. A respect for the judiciary system is mandatory for the man of your calibre."
