After referring to the world’s wealthiest man as a “mad man with money,” EFF leader Julius Malema has taken another swipe at Elon Musk.

This time, the controversial politician alluded that the Pretoria-born businessman was not an African.

Musk and Malema have been embroiled in a heated war of words this week following a viral video of the latter performing the controversial struggle song Kill The Boer.

Elon – born in Pretoria, SA – emigrated to Canada and later the US as a young teen.
