- South Africans have had divided reactions to Malema calling Naledi Chirwa out
- In a rant against some of the party supporters bowing down to him, Malema threw shade at Naledi
- Many felt that he was too harsh on her on a public platform
Mzansi has had mixed reactions after Malema lashed out at his own party member, Naledi Chirwa. This comes after Mzansi social media users expressed concern when a video was shared showing delegates bowing to him at the elective conference.
The leader of the Red Berets said that he is not to be worshipped and does not want people thinking he is running a cult. In his rant, he went on to throw shade at Naledi Chirwa. Chirwa is reported to have asked Bushiri to pray for her to get into Parliament.
Juju slammed idolising the pastor and bowing down to him. He threw a jab, indicating that Naledi's parliamentary days may be numbered. Social media users were divided in their reactions. Some were amused by his rant and echoed the sentiments that Naledi was a goner. Twitter user NMadzenga said:
"Naledi Chirwa's days are numbered. One of the few times where I agree with Juju."
"This is a revolutionary party, not some miracles stokvel."
"Once in a lifetime I agree with @Julius_S_Malema"
Others felt like Malema was bullying Naledi and should have rather called her out privately. Twitter user MissSteelo said:
"Aaaaah mara uJulius unjani. Him subbing Naledi was so unnecessary. I'm not a fan ka Naledi but this made me sad, it was unnecessary. This is one thing I don't like about Julius. His lack of respect for his subordinates. Yi bully lo."
"One of the things I deciphered when he had manifesto rally is, he is a dictator this one. And not far from a tribalist too. I voted for his party. He will never see my vote again, because once he comes to power seemingly he will decide for people what they should practice."
"I honestly feel he was too harsh with her. If he feels she made a mistake, don't embarrass her in public like that; don't make it so personal. He's leading young people, he has a responsibility to build and not destroy them like this. He fought her like an enemy, not fair."
