Malema, Mbalula in Twitter war over Guptas


Sport Minister Fikile Mbalula and EFF leader Julius Malema went at it on Twitter on Tuesday.

JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema took another swipe at Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, urging him to come out publicly about the Gupta family&39;s role in his appointment.

The two previously engaged in a no-holds-holds-barred twar in 2014 when Malema retweeted Mbalula bragging about being on a cruise ship. Watch a video of that exchange in the gallery below.

The latest spat follows Deputy Minister Finance Minister Jonas Mcebisi&39;s confirmation on Tuesday that the Guptas offered him the position of Finance Minister to replace then minister Nhlanhla Nene.

Mbalula fired back, giving Malema some important history lessons.

And then there was the Oros saga...

Cassper Nyovest also gave his insight on the bitter &39;twar&39;.

Meanwhile comedian Loyiso Gola had some sound advice for curbing the country&39;s rising unemployment statistics.
