Julius Malema held his second online Q&A today answering a variety of questions. He basically answered exactly what the party wrote in its manifesto, but two things that stood out were that the EFF doesn't regard rhino poaching as important, and that Julius is quiet on any children or love he might have in his life. Also during the chat he said doesn't hate white people.

Bantu Holomisa is making a lot of noise about Pansy Tlakula not responding after calls for her resignation. The IFP officially announced that they do not support this action, and that she must stay for the sake of the election.

That's today's election wrap.
