- Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane responded to allegations linking him to the disgraced former Steinhoff CEO Markus Jooste
- Maimane feels its all part of a smear campaign against him, led by "gutless" individuals
- Social media users reacted to the news by stating that karma has come back to bite Maimane
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the debacle surrounding Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane and his rented vehicle, which was funded by Steinhoff.
EFF leader Julius Malema then rubbed salt into the wound by suggesting to Maimane that the drama is good for the fans.
Maimane had earlier led a passionate defence via Twitter and his tweet has since gone viral.
Maimane labelled the allegations part of a smear campaign against him, led by "gutless" individuals.
Briefly.co.za surveyed the responses and it seems that many tweeps feel its appropriate for Maimane to get a taste of his own medicine.
Simon Grindrod (@SimonPGrindrod) responded, "Sir, you have demanded public investigations into financial activities of many politicians. You have also applauded the exposure of many dubious dealings. You preach about transparency - so publish your accounts and set the example you claim to represent."
Zwelihle Nyawo (@uKwenamaa) commented, "Once they give you a white woman. Khohlwa! Baqedile ngawe they done ka wena. You will never turn against them fight them or say anything that seeks to challenge them ,you will always turn against your own or you gone! Like it’s manifesting to you."
Mark Rountree (@mark__rountree) said, "You led a sustained smear campaign against Patricia de Lille & lost 3 consecutive court cases, with costs - wasted donations. The NPA’s investigations confirmed that the evidence against De Lille contradicted the allegations.Perhaps investigations will reveal the same for you."
Themba (@Themba67806152) added, "Now I believe! Karma has no expiry date."
