The #JuliusMalemaChallenge has been trending on Twitter ever since firebrand South African politician, Julius Malema made an impassioned speech in which he called out all the people he felt were shading crocodile tears for the late liberation war icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
Zimbabweans also took up the challenge and here are some of the more interesting tweets:
