- A few days ago, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema shared a social media post in response to the easing of lockdown measures
- Former Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane has now quoted Juju and echoed those sentiments
- Maimane's tweet was in response to the news that two teachers tested positive for Covid-19 and the comment received a mixed reaction
Two days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that after President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation on Sunday, Julius Malema took to social media to share a photo.
The image shows a sign which reads: "It will end in tears" and the tweet quickly went viral.
They may have been foes in the past, but former Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane quoted Juju and echoed those sentiments.
Maimane did so via his Twitter handle as well on Wednesday and was in response to the news that two Western Cape teachers tested positive for Covid-19 on their first day back at school.
The fact that Maimane quoted the EFF CIC sparked a huge reaction as the two men have often criticised each other in the past.
Maimane's tweet can be viewed below:
Briefly.co.za noted that Maimane's tweet started trending as well and we've shared some of the reactions below.
Lala (@i_gugu) shared some concerning insight:
"Bhuti Mmusi, my mom is teacher in a quintile two school, in a poverty enriched area elokshini. She had to report for work today, the school is in shambles, there's a rat infestation and so far all they got was a box of surgical masks and sanitisers."

"The lethality of the virus has been vastly overestimated - by a factor of 50 to 85 times. We are needlessly destroying our economy."
Thapedi Ngwepe (@NimNgw) asked,
"The other time he also said you were a rented black, a coconut and and and was he right then?"
