- Mmusi Maimane has shared what he really thinks of John Steenhuisen's recent unprofessional interview
- After a very strange interview on SABC recently, Steenhuisen has been the subject of criticism online
- Maimane said that it boiled down to respect, hinting that Steenhuisen had none
Mmusi Maimane has shaded DA leader John Steenhuisen after his recent disastrous SABC interview. Maimane hinted that Steenhuisen lacked respect and that's what may have derailed his dialogue with the interviewing journalist, Flo Letoaba.
He then reached out to the journalist to interview him instead. His shady tweet read:
"You see I think the key is respect. Ubuntu. That’s all that we need. Journalists have a job to do, we must respect that and be professional in how we respond, i-straight lendaba"
Letoaba interviewed Steenhuisen recently and things got heated really quickly. Steenhuisen had said that South Africans were complaining about the lockdown when Letoaba repeatedly asked him who the "South Africans" are. Steenhuisen took a jab at her and she chuckled before ending the interview.
Social media users were amused by Maimane's uncharacteristically shady side and weighed in. Twitter user kanjani_sonto said:
"Carry your Bible cos kzoshuba."
Maimane lightheartedly responded:
"I will carry my Bible and my list."
"Wow, Mmusi is out of order."
"He is too spicy, he was soooo lemon and herb when he was in that party."
"Don’t you love this Maimane?"
"Mfundisi pls pray for our @Flo_Letoaba. Very soon the establishment will be attacking her, that Grade 11 graduate was very angry."
