Yesterday thousands gathered at Orlando Stadium in Soweto to say their final goodbyes to the departed Mother of the Nation Mama Winnie Madikizeka- Mandela.
It was here that Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema left a lot of people shook after he gave what many have described as the best speech of his entire political career.
In his speech, Malema slammed those who had “humiliated” Mama Winnie while she was still alive, many of whom were present at her funeral crying louder than those who actually cared for her.
Even in times of mourning, South Africans are still able to find a lighter side and in true Twitter style, Malema’s speech has inspired a new Twitter challenge, the #JuliusMalemaChallenge.
Here are some of the best tweets.
