Social Media users in South Africa are all asking Winnie for a signal thanks to the new Julius Malema Challenge.


The #JuliusMalemaChallenge started on Saturday afternoon following the Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) speech at Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s funeral at Orlando stadium in Soweto.

Several presidents and former presidents from both South Africa and different parts of the continent attended the event, where Madikizela-Mandela’s daughters delivered a fiery tribute to the fallen hero, however the tribute from the EFF’s commander in chief Julius Malema drew significant applause from the crowd.

During his speech, Malema said those who betrayed Madikizela-Mandela while she was still alive were at her funeral. He then asked for her to send a signal on what should be done to deal with the critics now that she’s gone.

Since then Twitter has exploded with people asking Winnie for a signal, most more funny than serious cause if there is one thing we have learnt about South Africans, it is that we know how to make light of a situation.
