It's not a secret that Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader is one of the most controversial figures in politics. From calling for Zuma to resign to walking the EFF out of Parliament, Malema has shaken South African politics.


The EFF leader was once again in the news after Malema publicly showed support to those who illegally connect electricity.



"EFF leader Julius Malema has expressed his fondness for izinyoka-nyoka (people who connect electricity illegally), whom he regards as leaders who should not be arrested. | @City_Press


https://t.co/Xy5dtzXGuT" - @News24 tweeted.


His comment caused a lot of debate on social media with some saying he is encouraging lawlessness.



"Problem with Malema is that he sometimes advocate for lawlessness and impunity. Otherwise he has fire in his belly which could be well channeled if he worked within the bounds of the law. - @lacoste3017 commented.


Another Twitter user came to Malema's defence and tried to explain what he meant by his comment.


"This what he meant ““I love the izinyoka-nyoka because they connect electricity in squatter camps, so no one can say electricity can’t be connected there when they’ve already led and proved that it’s indeed possible that electricity can be brought there, He said. Correct your twt" - @makitimela87 added.
