There are no permanent enemies in politics. The leader of the EFF tweeted out the invitation and asked the ex-president if they could meet urgently over tea. The Twitter interaction caught many by surprise with many South Africans asking themselves what the meeting was about.
The media won’t be allowed to broadcast or attend the private conversation between the two, This comes after a Twitter user asked the EFF leader Julius Malema.
Malema further said the meeting was “in the best interest of our country”.
Former president Jacob Zuma has come under massive scrutiny in the past few days following his defiance of the Constitutional Court ruling compelling him to appear before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
Zuma in a statement intimated that the judiciary was biased against him, following a ruling by the Constitutional Court that he should appear before the state capture inquiry and answer questions put to him.
The EFF on Monday said that Zuma’s decision to defy the Constitutional Court was misguided, and called on him and his lawyers to reconsider the “ill-advised decision”.
On Twitter, Malema said he would speak to “your young man”, Ekurhuleni mayor Mzwandile Masina, for the final details of the meeting.
Malema, who was then leader of the ANC Youth League, was expelled from the party because of ill-discipline and for misbehaving according to Zuma.
