'Where has this side of you been?' SA tweeps love post-DA Mmusi Maimane
These days, 'Moruti' - as Mmusi Maimane been nicknamed by Twitter users - tweets about everything from sport, music, prayers, current affairs and, of course, politics.
JOHANNESBURG - Another side of Mmusi Maimane has emerged on Twitter and has South Africans wondering where this cooler version has been all our lives.
The former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader has been more active than usual on Twitter since resigning from his post in October last year.
These days, 'Moruti' - as he's been nicknamed by Twitter users - tweets about everything from sport, music, prayers, current affairs and, of course, politics.
He's even become someone not to mess with as he claps back at some people who pass snide remarks.
Here are a few examples which have garnered positive responses lately.

I pray that we all walk on the path to our dreams with faith the size of a mustard seed. I read somewhere that it moves mountains.— Mmusi Maimane (@MmusiMaimane) February 25, 2020
I pray that we do not give in to the despondency of the status quo. We must rise beyond the hopelessness that surrounds us.

A challenge in our present schooling system is that government does not spend enough money on school maintenance and refurbishment.— Mmusi Maimane (@MmusiMaimane) February 21, 2020
This is why we are hearing about more and more incidents of students put in harms way by poorly maintained structures. https://t.co/eLbkSX5t1b

Real unity can not be built on lies. It is unfortunate that we even had to have this debate again 30 years after the release of Mandela. 26 years into the democratic project.
I fully agree with @CyrilRamaphosa as should we all as a nation. pic.twitter.com/ufNqD7nyOZ
I am disappointed with what I am seeing today in parliament.— Mmusi Maimane (@MmusiMaimane) February 18, 2020
This is not what the nation expects from its leaders.
The behavior today was totally unacceptable. Instead of debate we are witnessing childish behavior, insults and profanity. pic.twitter.com/BLcqnfKsHd
