The world is still coming to terms with the outcome of the recent US Elections which saw Joe Biden emerging as the nation's new leader.

EFF MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi evidently couldn't resist taking a jab at South African billionaire Patrice Motsepe over an embarrassing incident the businessman would probably rather forget.

Ndlozi took to social media to post a clip of Motsepe professing Africa's love for Donald Trump at a World Economic Forum dinner in Switzerland where the billionaire infamously said it.

As supporters of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris celebrate their victory in the US presidential elections, EFF MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has poked fun at businessman Patrice Motsepe.

“Africa loves America, Africa loves you and it's very important for America to do well."

In response to Trump's loss at the polls, Ndlozi jokingly asked if anyone had checked in on Motsepe:

"Has anyone checked on poor Patrice Motsepe... is he fine bandla (Africa Loves You)."

While Ndlozi had previously signalled his immense dislike for Trump, it doesn't seem as if he is totally satisfied with Biden's win. The EFF MP noted that Biden had served former president Barack Obama well, but nevertheless commented that:

"Biden actually served Obama with respect and humility. Not once did we ever thought he was the actual force and Obama was a front! It is an important point to make because a lot of white men struggle to recognise black authority! Of course, he remains a liberal pro-capitalist enemy!"

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Patrice Motsepe had drawn the ire of the EFF by speaking on behalf of the entire continent when he voiced this immense love for Trump. The public backlash had prompted Motsepe's apology with one of the nation's richest men commenting that:

"The debate also exposed me to the views of Africans who disagreed with my remarks. I have a duty to listen to these differing views and would like to apologise. I do not have the right to speak on behalf of anybody except myself.
"As a global philanthropist and business leader, I have for many decades, in South Africa and on the African continent, worked to bring together and unite people of different races, ethnic groups and members of different religious and faith-based organisations. I’ve worked with political, business, societal and other leaders whose views and policies I do not share and will continue to do so in Africa and globally."
