* EFF leader Julius Malema dismissed those who have questioned the content he chooses to share on Twitter through retweets with the insult ‘mesunery’, only to have his spelling questioned by a man who is definitely familiar with the term – DJ Fresh. Usually spelt ‘msunery’, the word is an adaptation of the profanity ‘ms*nu’, which refers to female genitals. While DJ Fresh is certainly qualified to voice his opinion on the word, as it’s the one that got him fired from his job hosting the breakfast show on Metro FM, Malema responded saying that rather than misspelling the word, ‘mesunery’ is simply the way the word would be spelt in Sepedi, as opposed to Zulu.
