- Shivambu, who is a Amakhosi fan, said the Bucs lost because "Mjekejeke" supported them
- The Orlando Pirates suffered an 1-0 loss against the Amakhosi side
EFF Deputy president Floyd Shivambu took jabs at ANC MP Jackson Mthembu after the Orlando Pirates suffered an 1-0 loss against the Kaizer Chiefs.
Shivambu - who appears to support the Amakhosi side - shared a tweet of Mthembu where he showed the Bucs support.
The Minister wrote ahead of the derby:
"May the best people’s team @orlandopirates win this afternoon #SowetoDerby .#OrlandoPirates."
The EFF deputy accused Mthembu of being the reason why the Pirates lost:
"This is why @orlandopirates lost. Supported by Mjekejeke???"
South Africans found Shivambu's dig funny and they gave their two cents' worth on the matter in the comments.
Twitter user, @matshbz, commented:
"Mjekejeke must call for the coach to be disappointed."
Thabiso Chuene, who goes by the Twitter handle @thabzchuene, added:
"That's why Pirates was disappointed today, Mjekejeke must be appointed as a head coach "
Luckily, it appears Mthembu is not a bad loser and he congratulated the Amakhosi side on their win.
"Our @orlandopirates players did their best on the field of play , unfortunately it was not our day . Congratulations to @KaiserChiefs," he wrote.
