- On Sunday, thousands of South Africans participated in the National Day of Prayer
- Julius Malema and Mmusi Maimane were photographed together at an event
- The EFF announced their CIC and Maimane united to pray against anti-black racism
On Sunday, thousands of South Africans gathered at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg to pray for the country. Issues like gender-based violence and crimes against children took centre stage on the National Day of Prayer.
Amongst those who attended were Julius Malema and Mmusi Maimane. The EFF leader made a u-turn in his feelings towards Maimane after the latter stepped down as the DA leader.
Juju and the former DA leader posed for a photo together and the EFF posted it on Twitter.
The EFF captioned the photo:
"CIC @Julius_S_Malema takes a pic with @MmusiMaimane at #nationaldayofprayer. Leadership of South Africa is all here to join in prayer for our country and the world. Our prayer request is the end of anti-black racism in the country and the world."
Needless to say, the image sparked quite the reaction. Briefly.co.za gathered many wanted to know why the politicians were only praying for the end of anti-black racism and not all racism.
However, others only focussed on Juju, who appears to be gaining a bit of weight.
