People wearing ANC t-shirts, who decided to appear at a recent EFF rally in the Renosterberg Local Municipality in Northern Cape, were not spared by Julius Malema's sharp tongue.

Malema's visit to the area on Monday, 18 October, came just two weeks before the local general elections on 1 November.

"CIC, @Julius_S_Malema, welcoming yellow t-shirts wearing people who attended our meeting. We understand that people are hungry for leadership, and only the EFF has leadership in this entire country. #LandAndJobsManje #VoteEFF."

The former ANC Youth League leader is heard saying the party is happy to see supporters of the opposing party in attendance as "they know where to find true leadership."

Malema added that they saw the need to show up because an ANC leader in their ward went MIA which, as a result, leaves them missing a leader.

“How can EFF people wear EFF t-shirts and go to an ANC rally? We would never do that because we are proper upstairs. We have our own leaders.”

Mzansi social media users had plenty to say, with others, too, grabbing the opportunity to level shots at Malema.

"I was among those people who were in yellow t-shirts. We heard you're giving RDP houses away in Sandton, we came for ours."

@LindaManamela1 added:

"This is true. There is no normal EFF member who could put on EFF T-shirt and go to attend ANC rally or community meeting. This is a SIGN OF LACK. They lack something HUGE in their head."

"The ANC has collapsed municipalities, collapsed infrastructure, collapsed governance, collapsed SOEs, and collapsed the ANC."

Mzansi political observers who hold a bias towards the ANC did not take kindly to Mokoena's comment and made sure to make this known by tearing into him.

The tweet attracted nearly 300 likes and a handful of zapping comments. Briefly News jumped in to bring readers the reactions.
