Julius Malema has some undeniable beef with President Cyril Ramaphosa and it seems whatever caused it is still disturbing the Economic Freedom Fighter boss.

CBS News reported that New Zealand was removing the statue of a British navy commander accused of murdering indigenous people in the 19th century.

Without skipping a beat, Malema took aim at Ramaphosa over the notion of removing statues of past oppressors:

"Cyril Ramaphosa I don't expect much from you, but I thought I should share with you what your handlers are already doing. Perhaps you may have some courage."

Briefly.co.za reported that Malema had referred to the president as a 'b*stard' on multiple occasions in recent times.

The Economic Freedom Fighters have taken the stance that the ruling party is responsible for the continued oppression of black South Africans.

During his Black Lives Matter protest, Malema had accused Ramaphosa of selling out the nation years ago and it seems as if the EFF politician is sticking to his guns over this claim.

It had earned him a scathing clap back from the ANC Youth Leauge, who had accused Malema of smearing the president's name in an attempt to remain relevant.

As for the accusations that Ramaphosa was bowing to the wishes of his 'handlers', the ANCYL dismissed the claim as 'verbal diarrhoea' on Malema's side.
