Mmusi Maimane has no chill. The former DA leader took a swipe at the ANC after Fikile Mbalula lauded the ruling party for making progress in SA.
#ANCFriday trended on Twitter and the minister of transport made a series of tweets in honour of his party.
In one of the posts, Mbalula said the ANC has come a long way over the past years. He wrote:
“We have come a long way, but the road ahead is long and challenging. If we are to succeed, we must redouble our efforts and not rest on our laurels. #ANCFriday.”
The post generated quite the reaction and only reply in particular caught our attention. Mmusi Maimane replied to Mbaweezy’s tweet by saying of the ANC moved forward, it was in the wrong direction.
“J Cole says ‘you came a long way, but you went the wrong way’.”
