South African MP and Economic Freedom Fighters party leader Julius Malema has shaken the streets of Kenyan Twitter following his viral speech at the funeral of Winnie Mandela.
In the speech, Malema constantly refers to Winnie Mandela as ‘Mama’ and asks her to provide him with a signal on how to respond to certain issues or treat certain people.
“Those who sold you out to the regime are here, and what is funny Mama, is that they are crying the loudest more than all of us who cared for you… you never told me how we must treat them when they come here, I’m waiting for a signal Mama,” says Malema at one point in the now famous speech.
The speech has now become a favorite among Kenyans on Twitter who have come up with the hashtag #JuliusMalemaChallenge to address their own issues.
Below are some of the posts by various Twitter users;
Mama, even the youths who voted on October 26 for this regime are here and whining more than us that jobs are going for old people and age limit is being extended to keep such oldies on the job….give us a SIGNAL 😂 #JuliusMalemaChallenge
