Mmusi Maimane & Mzwanele Manyi Attacks Fikile Mbalula Following His Tweet

The Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula has been in the spotlight following his statement that his party have not lost the elections but only lost coalitions. Mbalula's statements saw him receiving a huge backlash from South Africans in general, it got so worse that well known political figures even weighed in; among a lot of them, we have Mzwanele Manyi and Mmusi Maimane.

"We didnt lose elections we lost to coalitions bcos of our failure to ganer outright majority to govern. #coalitions," He wrote.

In response to Malula's tweet, Maimane breathed fire as He accused the minister of transport of being in denial of the fact that his political party lost major metros for the first time. "Your party lost millions of votes. your party lost metros," Maimane said.

Manyi argued that losing elections and coalitions are just the same things they lead to one thing which is the ANC's failure in winning metros thus chances of being in charge. "Can someone please explain very slowly to Cde Mbaks that failure to garner outright majority to govern is the same as losing elections. So, Ramaphosa's ANC lost twice. It lost the elections and it also lost on coalitions. Sadly it's a double whammy," Mzwanele said.

Mbalula's statement of denial did a lot of damage than good as it made people question his general knowledge of politics. Others argued that if He does not know that losing metros or coalitions is the same as losing elections are the same then He is incapable of being a leader let alone a Minister of Transport.
