On the eve of the local governmnet elections DA leader Mmusi Maimane breaks the internet for claiming he voted for Madiba. Addressing thousands at the party’s final rally held in Dobsonville Soweto, Maimane is quoted saying, . A quick google search shows that Maimane was born on the 6th of June 1980. So either Mmusi
- Young Mmusi 13 years old going on to 14 voted for Madiba in the ’94 elections
- Mmusi lied to the people
- Mmusi was quoted out of context by the media
- Maimane voted for the ANC in 1999 when Thabo Mbeki was running for election, voting for the spirit of Madiba
Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi tweeted that Maimane would have been too young to vote.
Radio personality Sakina Kamwendo ran a poll asking her followers if Mmusi used soccer age or told a ❝big fat lie❞
Twitaratis thought if Mmusi could vote for Madiba, then he could do anything, including dinning with Jesus at the last supper, to being the only man to have ever defeated Chuck Norris and having a Facebook account even before the social networks were an idea.
Even the City of Johannesburg joined in on the fray
Home Affairs spokesperson Mayihlome Tshwete also added his point saying Maimane must have organised the meeting between Mbeki and Malema.
NOT everyone was happy with #ThingsMmusiDid. DA spokeperson and member of parliament Phumzile van Damme was one of them
The DA has since said, they are NOT shaken by Mmusi’s comments.
