The leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, Julius Malema, has declined an invite from the previous Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille. The former Democratic Alliance leader called the Economic Freedom fighters leader on her discussion podcast ‘Tea with Helen’ to talk about the nation’s prospects. It all began on Tuesday when the previous Democratic Alliance leader had poll asking her follower who they would like to be the next guest for her show.
The choices were between the previous leader of the African National Congress, Thabo Mbeki, and the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters Julius Malema. Most of her followers decided on having the Economic Freedom Fighters leader. Helen Zille went on to invite Julius Malema to be part of her show, giving him the chance to choose the place, time and day whereby they will start their discussion. “Hi there [Julius Malema]. I would like to invite you as a guest on my podcast [Tea With Helen] for a no-holds-barred discussion on SA’s future prospects. My diary is quite flexible, so you name the date, time and place. I’ll serve the tea. Looking forward to your response,” said Helen Zille on Monday.
However, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters declined the invite with a bit of a clap. Julius Malema asked her if she could possibly be lost and asked her whether she was looking for the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) offices. The Economic Freedom Fighters leader said: “I think you are lost, are you not looking for #SASSA offices?” The previous Democratic Alliance leader said he was ducking out of the debate with a “lame joke”. Helen Zille said: “Are you seriously ducking out of the debate with a lame “joke”? Let’s discuss the future of our country on a platform where we can go beyond 280c and get beneath the surface slogans.”
