- Democratic Alliance MP Natasha Mazzone has called the Economic Freedom Fighters' Floyd Shivambu out
- Mazzone posted a screenshot of an old Twitter post shared by Shivambu about Busisiwe Mkhwebane
- The tweet gained a ton of responses from South Africans who either joined Mazzone or defended Shivambu
Democratic Alliance's (DA) Natasha Mazzone has reshared a Twitter post by the Economic Freedom Fighters' (EFF) Floyd Shivambu. The 2018 tweet by Shivambu refers to Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane as a 'non-protector'.
In a follow-up tweet, Mazzone shared her thoughts on Shivambu's current opinions about Mkhwebane. Shivambu stated that the "white minority always controls the ANC" and shared a picture of Mazzone with John Steenhuisen.
Mazzone called Shivambu out in one of her posts where she asked her followers if they 'see the game' that is being played.
Take a look at Mazzone's first tweet with a few reactions below:
"At least he has got an education and he is very smart, we can't say the same about you Natasha and your Baas Steinhuisen. Grade 12s..."
"I think he comfort eats to hide the hurt and disappointment."
"Wait till the PP investigates them, then you will hear them making noise at the top of their voices."
"They thought she was going to go after them, when they realised she was not, that's when they started singing praise songs for her. I hope SAns are seeing through these people. The only people they care about are themselves and no one else."
"Thank you DA for consistently raising issues of national interest and playing a vigorous oversight role. Don't be distracted by the demagoguery."
"It's a matter of time before the EFF oppose the NPA's appeal of the Bongo ruling."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that on Mkhwebane after Gwede Mantashe reportedly wanted ANC MPs to vote in favour of the inquiry into her. Reports say there was an emergency meeting held with the ANC caucus on Tuesday, 16 March to discuss this.
Mkhwebane could be impeached following a review by an independent panel. DA Chief Whip Natasha Mazzone revealed the news in a statement, where she supported the findings by the independent review panel.
The findings suggest that there is a prima facie case (a case accepted as correct until proven otherwise) for Parliament to institute the removal proceedings against Mkhwebane in terms of misconduct.
Mazzone added that they are pleased with the findings and further urged Parliament to institute the removal proceedings without delay.
