- A publication wrote an editorial on the EFF's apology to Mrs Thandeka Gqubule-Mbeki and Mr Anton Harber
- The author called the court ordered apology "half-hearted" and Juju was quick to give his two cents' worth on the article
- Malema told the publication to "voetsek" and it sparked a massive reaction online
After losing a defamation case against two journalists, the EFF has issued what has to be the shortest apology possible, Briefly.co.za reported previously.
Thandeka Gqubule-Mbeki and Anton Harber recently won their case against the Red Berets. In addition to this short and not-so-sweet apology, the EFF has been ordered to pay each R40 000 and cover the journalists' legal costs.
Sowetan LIVE published an editorial about the EFF's short apology, dubbing it "half-hearted", and it prompted a Twitter response from Julius Malema.
"You can voetsek" - the EFF leader simply commented.
The EFF leader's comment quickly generated heated commentary and Mzansi's views were across the board.
Danielia Burger, who goes by the Twitter handle @SArealchange, commented:
"Spoken like a real commander in chief! Any idea how childish you sound? You seriously have no self value and respect! Such baggage!"
Xabiso Mtwana, @MtwanaXabiso, added:
"CIC is already here."
