- Dali Mpofu recently threw a wad of shade at the DA's new leader, John Steenhuisen
- The EFF leader recently congratulated Mmusi Maimane on the arrival of his new baby while at the same time shaded Steenhuisen about his lack of post-matric qualifications
- Twitter users shared their thoughts on the tweet in the comment section
EFF leaders seemingly never get tired of reminding John Steenhuisen about his lack of matric qualifications. Seizing and sometimes even making opportunities to poke some fun at the new DA leader.
Recently, EFF member, Dali Mpofu headed to Twitter and quite clearly shaded Steenhuisen in a tweet that was supposedly meant to congratulated ex-DA leader, Mmusi Maimane on the birth of his baby girl.
"May I take this opportunity once again to congratulate Moruti @MmusiMaimane on the birth of his daughter. And...Good Luck to the Leader of the Official Opposition @jsteenhuisen in the Matric exams...If you are writing, please watch out for Economics & History," he wrote in the snarky Twitter post.
Meanwhile, followers of the opposing parties took to the comment section to share their thoughts on the shady tweet. Read a few of them below.
"Academic snobbery. How many EFF supporters have matric? Because you're mocking them too."
"We are seeing that in Ndlozi and others that education do not make u a wise person. Including yourself...if u were that wise u will have known and basically win all cases you were putting to court. Be educated do not translate into wisdom."
In similar Briefly.co.za news, former Mayor of Johannesburg Herman Mashaba shared a tweet which slyly judged the ruling party. Mashaba shared images of Khaylitsha, with part of his tweet reading: "If this is 'good governance', we don't have an understanding of what 'good' actually means."
It wasn't long before Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula saw Mashaba's tweet and hit back at him. Mbalula said: "Mention the party name sir, don't generalise. Who is governing the w cape? Your party democratic alliance."
Many South African tweeps were not very impressed with Mbalula's response and clapped back at him in the replies section. @kaliduku1 said to Mbalula: "You are governing nationally Jola. This reflects on your government about how your own people have been treated for years."
