- EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu and DA federal executive chair Athol Trollip had a war of words
- The pair were feuding after Trollip accused Julius Malema of flip-flopping on debating Helen Zille
- This prompted Shivambu to clap back at the 'racist' former mayor who is still 'hurt' over his ejection from his position
Floyd Shivambu and Athol Trollip had a heated exchange on social media over Helen Zille's recent invitation to Julius Malema.
Briefly.co.za reported that Zille had invited the EFF leader to have some tea and a 'no-holds-barred' debate on SA's future.
Malema had snubbed the invitation but since then a 2011 clip of the Red Beret emerged where he vowed to take Zille on.
This evoked a jab at the EFF and its leader from DA federal executive chair Athol Trollip who had commented:
"Always flip-flopping! That's all the EFF and its leader are really good at."
This provoked the party's deputy Floyd Shivambu, who clapped back with this response:
"The EFF is also good at ejecting racist mayors who are still hurt and will use every little opportunity to hit back. We are proud that we have cut the throat of whiteness and that's not flip-flopping: it's REAL."
Trollip had been removed as the Executive Mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality after a motion of no confidence.
The opposition member had recently divulged the Democratic Alliance had received donations from the infamous Steinhoff company, although he didn't detail exact amounts.
This comes as Mmusi Maimane is accused of holding onto a Fortuner rented by the company despite warnings from fellow party members.
