- Julius Malema in his usual crass manner told the DA to "voetsek" after they questioned him about his Nkandla tea party with former president Jacob Zuma
- The DA demanded to know who paid the bill for Malema's trip to Nkandla after he reportedly arrived there in a helicopter
- Soon many locals were weighing in both the DA's request and Malema's voetsek response
The EFF's Julius Malema recently had almost all of Mzansi talking after he requested a "tea party" with the former president of SA, Jacob Zuma. Mzansi was buzzing even more when Zuma accepted and Malema set off by helicopter to have "tea" with Zuma.
The DA was one of the many entities left wondering what exactly the tea would be about but their biggest worry seemed to be who was paying for Malema's pricey travels to Zuma's luxury Nkandla estate.
The DA revealed that they were looking into how Malema's trip was funded, adding that they have written to the Speaker of the National Assembly Thandi Modise, asking her to instruct the various parliamentary staff members who oversee the payment of entitlements to members of parliament.
The Registrar of Member’s Interests, who oversees all gifts, hospitality and travel benefits, has also been requested to investigate in full exactly how and who paid for the extravagant trip by Julius Malema.
The tweet was greeted by a simple "voetsek" by Julius Malema, who has never been known for biting his tongue - not even on a public platform such as Twitter, on which the entire exchange took place.
Meanwhile, South Africans could not let the tweets slide without sharing their thoughts, a few of which you can read below:
"So this guy is a leader? South Africa, please wake up."
"To think I once voted for this rude guy. NEVER again."
"On his behalf I reiterate, Voetsek."
"Bathong! DA mara, can't a black man use his own money in peace?! The level of undermining us is unacceptable!"
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has clapped back at former Wits University vice-chancellor Prof Adam Habib after he compared his tea date with Jacob Zuma to a Nazi meeting.
Specifically, Habib made reference to 1939 alliance between foreign minister of Nazi Germany, Joachim von Ribbentrop, and his Soviet counterpart, Vyacheslav Molotov (known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop, Hitler-Stalin or Nazi-Soviet pact). Habib added that the meeting was a 'devil's pact'.
Malema wasted no time in responding, referring to President Cyril Ramaphosa when he said 'your favourite':
"The pact happened at Mangaung when your favourite became his deputy, or you conveniently forgot about it because it is working for you?”
