Maimane and Malema debate on X

The debate between Malema and Maimane started when @MmusiMaimane replied to a video in which Julius Malema said that the party supports rugby but does not support "Rugby ya maburu", translated as "Boer rugby". This is a reference to statements Julius Malema made when he called for the Springbok name to be cancelled because of its connection to apartheid South Africa.

Maimane called Malema out and said that policy should focus on finding out why Bafana Bafana are not performing the same way as the Proteas and Springboks are performing. View the tweet here.
