Briefly.co.za recently reported on the furore involving financial planner Richard Muller and EFF leader Julius Malema.
Muller shared a tweet which seemingly threw shade at South Africans as he and his family are leaving the Rainbow Nation to build a new life in New Zealand.
He seemingly could't resist adding that R400 000 would be lost in income tax as a result of their departure.
The tweet drew a strong reaction and Juju shared an emphatic response:
"Don’t make noise, quiet please. Ssshhh, bloody fool."
Now, it's the turn of Former Democratic Alliance parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko to have her say.

Jhua-nine (@Jnini9) questioned Mazibuko:
"Fact is that this country is losing entrepreneurs and doctors that we really can't afford to lose. We shouldn't be wishing people well when they leave, we should be fighting the government that makes them leave. The government that makes EVERYONE suffer."
Graeme (@Bunterwp) added,
"For an educated person, this is a very misguided response to the uncertainties which the youth & minorities face in this country. We need understanding & solutions to our problems which it’s hoped that Harvard graduates would relate & contribute to."
Intombi kaBafo (@Cecilia_Mthwane) heaped praise on Mazibuko:
"You just gained a Follower. HermanMashaba, please invite sis Lindiwe for a tea, this is the kind of leadership we have been longing for."
