Why the word Poes trended for 2 days
I could not believe that the word , `poes’ trended for 2 days on twitter. At one stage, it was the highest trend in South Africa, position 1:
A journalist was interviewing Julius Malema. Towards the end of the interview, the journalist, mouthed something and people started assuming what the word was.
Julius Malema is seen here addressing the media outside the Hawks offices in Pretoria, after he was summoned over allegations that he fired a rifle in public. You can hear Barry Bateman call Julius a 'Poes' at the end. That 'PINK' must have shook every racist bone in his body.😳 pic.twitter.com/TREpm6GkrR

Malema calls a journalist Marete there was absolutely no outrage but people laughed. When a journalist calls Malema a #poes there is all of a suddenly an outcry? This is a poes of hypocrisy.
