- A local news publication has been following and covering ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule around Soweto
- The publication shared an image of Magashule and his entourage giving an elderly lady money that left a bad taste in the EFF's Julius Malema's mouth
- Malema saw the post and immediately responded with "Sies," he did not elaborate on his reaction
A local news publication has been following and covering ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule's by-election campaign trial in Soweto ward 130 today. From Magashule addressing supporters to him and his entourage giving an elderly lady money.
Leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters Julius Malema was not at all impressed by Magashule and responded to the publication's tweets with "Sies". At first glance, it appears that Malema was responding to the thread of tweets.
On closer inspection, it was made evident that the EFF leader was responding in specific to the handing over of money to the elderly resident by Magashule's entourage.
Take a look at the Twitter thread below:
This was Malema's response:
Take a look at some of the reactions to Malema's response below:
"Ace always give out money during elections... Mara ANC."
@MtutuFromMzansi asked for clarification:
"Why sies? What's wrong?"
During a 'special visit' to Pharmacy Direct, Malema said global democracy is in question if first world nations are concerned about alleged electoral fraud and vote-rigging.
“If they are robbing each other it is good. They are tasting what we have been tasting here in Africa. They must know what the rigging is about, but Trump is a crybaby, he must accept defeat. If he is defeated he must accept. The same with [Joe] Biden."
Malema insisted that the nation should have the most elite electoral system, not complaints:
“They are a first-world (country). They cannot be speaking about the rigging of elections because they are supposed to have the most sophisticated electoral system ... and if we third world (countries) are still complaining about rigging and the first world is also complaining, then democracy is in danger.”
