Julius Malema will let JSomething keep his land in an EFF-led South Africa

Thanks to Julius Malema, JSomething and Micasa are trending on Twitter in South Africa today.

Also thanks to Julius Malema, JSomething will get to keep his land “under the EFF government” after a light-hearted tweet took a different approach to his usually firm land expropriation views.

The musician, who is of Portuguese descent — was given special mention by the EFF leader on Wednesday morning, stating that the “micasa guy” is totally welcome in South Africa if the EFF came to power.

“That micasa guy called Jsomething will keep land under the @EFFSouthAfrica government,” Malema tweeted, gaining 1500 likes and 300 retweets in a few hours.

Others on Twitter believed that other South Africans should be eligible too, including this tiny PSL fan…

…and Christo Thurston, a popular Instagrammer known for his videos filmed in Sesotho.

Malema seemingly liked this idea too, replying with an “obvious” when asked if Thurston’s land would be spared too.

Thurston replied.

And in case you’re wondering, no, JSomething has yet to respond to Malema’s kindness.
