National spokesperson of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Mbuyiseni Ndlozi did not take comments made by Minister of Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula lightly.
This after the minister said that “2016 has been like some party in parliament, disruptive, disrespectful and always on its worst behaviour. We lacked bouncers to chuck it out.”
Although Mbalula did not specifically mention the EFF, his words seem not to have sat well with Ndlozi.
He took to Twitter to lambaste the minister in a series of tweets, also calling him “moemish”.
“No age in our politics has been more haunted by sheer moemishness than our own! If politics is sound argument – how do we argue with moesh?” asked Ndlozi on Twitter.

The EFF man ridiculed the minister for “celebrating” the use of bouncers in parliament.
Since the EFF took to parliament, the House has become a scene for fighting between EFF members and security personnel. The personnel have often been called in to remove EFF MPs who allegedly have not complied with the rules of parliament.
“This minister celebrates usage of bouncers in parly all in protection of a moemish regime: from weekend special to state of capture report?
“The audacity of his tweet is itself no better evidence of his zombification by the moemish he fought so hard against in the past.
“If Trump & Schwarzenegger could move from entertainment to politics; perhaps they left an open-door 4 this minister to make d opposite move.
“Isn’t it true that he’ll be remembered as ‘razzmatazz’ – meaning that he could turn a good moemish moment into plenty ones?”
Chief whip of the Democratic Alliance (DA) John Steenhuisen also weighed in on Ndlozi’s series of tweets. He criticised the minister for having bunked parliament.
