Arthur also seemed to show support for EFF leader Julius Malema. “The Julius that I know is not gonna take any nonsense from any person that he donated his votes to, watch the space,” he tweeted.

Even Julius himself responded to Arthur’s comments seeming surprised.

In the wake of the backlash Arthur returned to social media making it clear that he is an ANC supporter.

“I am an ANC supporter. I take full responsibility of my successes and failures of my beloved party,” Arthur said.

Arthur went on to add that he was still behind the party.
