The Economic Freedom Fighter's Julius Malema is ready to defend Mdumiseni Zuma, an individual identified as an instigator in the July 2021 Unrest. Zuma, known for his involvement in calling for the destruction of Brookside Mall in Pietermaritzburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal, was handed a 12-year sentence. South Africans cried for Malema to help him as they felt an injustice was done.

Malema's tweet expressed that he did not think Zuma was properly legally represented. He added that he called on his KZN Provincial Chair to investigate the case and find a way to assist Zuma.

South Africans stan Malema
Netizens fawned over Malema and his decision to support Zuma.
“Malema, how I love you. Please change your policy about foreigners because we love you. We will vote for you. You are the future.”
“I will vote for you, but the thing is, I’m not quite convinced. As soon as you stop allowing illegal immigrants from looming around in your county, I will vote for you.”
“One day, as a society, we must have an honest discussion about our criminal justice system.”
“You have spoken as the true leader of the African people. This was an apartheid-style lynching using apartheid laws.”
Some were unhappy.
Gangster Whose Real Name is Clarence observed:
“Seems like you’re always supporting people on the wrong side of the law.”
Sparx was suspicious.
“Only now, at the sentencing stage, you want to assist.”
