One thing we as South Africans have come to expect, is members of the EFF criticising members of the ANC and particularly the president of the current leading party, President Cyril Ramaphosa. Julius Malema recently proved this after he headed online to drag Ramaphosa.
Malema makes accusations of hypnotism
In his tweet, Malema accused Ramaphosa of using the name of Nelson Mandela to try and hypnotise South Africans. He also said that Ramaphosa is "killing" the country's people.
"When they want to hypnotise us, they use Mandela name. #RamaphosaIsKillingUs," he wrote.
South Africans share their thoughts on Malema's tweet
"Can we hear what he says?He is the president. Your time will come."
"Relax juju relax we need our nation to live please wait!"
"I am very disappointed with President Ramaphosa, I was expecting him to announce your appointment as Minister of Health."
"#EFFIsKillingUs with super spreader events like marches."
The country goes right back into level 4
Briefly News earlier reported that President Cyril Ramaphosa warned the country that we face another grave challenge with hospital admissions were rising and Covid-19 infections were getting worse with the peak of this wave being higher than the previous two.
As a result, new restrictions will be put into place as South Africa moves to Alert Level 4. A massive resurgence of infections is being experienced in South Africa as the third wave of infections sweeps across the country with more than 11 400 people currently hospitalised with Covid-19 with private and government facilities buckling under the pressure with ICU beds in short supply.
The only way to combat the virus is to reduce the person to person contact which was the best way to flatten the rate of infection during the first and second waves.
