- Mmusi Maimane and Panyazi Lesufi exchanged jokes on Twitter after someone dropped a video of Lesufi making fun of Kaizer Chiefs
- Lesufi commented that he's quite sorry that everyone keeps bringing this example up when talking about the Chiefs
- Maimane demanded that Lesufi gives all Amakhosi fans a proper apology and then retract his statement
Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi and former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane had a little laugh on the Twitter timeline today. This was following a video that was posted by Mzwanele Manyi, who is the Head of Policy at the African Transformation Movement.
In the video, Lesufi is talking about the importance of having online passwords that are difficult for people to guess. As a reference, Lesufi said that if your password was "Kaizer Chiefs", it would be very easy for anyone to gain access to your information.
With this example, Lesufi was insinuating that it's easy for things to go through Kaizer Chiefs, making fun of their recent form in their last few competitive games.
Lesufi commented on the video and apologised to Kaizer Chiefs fans:
"Askies my cadre, I wonder why people enjoy recycling this unfortunate example. Sincere apologies to the Khosi Nation," he said.
Mmusi Maimane joined in on the fun as he is a loyal Khosi fan:
"I believe it would be proper to issue an apology to all @KaizerChiefs fans and then retract the statement," said Mmusi.
He also added "Go Boima!" to his statement, meaning "It's hard." It really has been a tough time for all Kaizer Chiefs fans because the Soweto team has been performing below par lately.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mmusi Maimane said "emotional investment is too much" about Chiefs' recent loss. Mmusi Maimane recently took to Facebook to share a sad post about how disappointed he is in his favourite team, Kaizer Chiefs for losing the match against Swallows FC at the Dobsonville stadium.
"The emotional investment is too much. @KaizerChiefs iyisafani," wrote Maimane who also included a picture of himself wearing his Kaizer Chiefs jersey.
"As the people of Dobsonville we demand answers re what took place tonight at the stadium," he continued.
