"Couldn't you just say Rest in peace Shona Ferguson and leave Milpark out of this Julius, I know you're a politician but there is no need for politics on Shonas passing hhayi!! man."

@AlastairMcA30 said:

"What an awful thing to say. HCW have worked tirelessly, while EFF have held superspreader events. It’s simply incorrect to blame a hospital because someone died of a terrible virus."

@Masterwigs00 said:

"He's not the first as many have died with the same covid complications, this useless underperforming hospital has failed decimally to save their lives."

@gillog said:

"Imagine medical staff who work tirelessly and feel the burn of every failure in a period of endless loss and now have to read this too. What a disgusting thing to say."

@ChrisExcel102 said:

"Public hospitals are underrated they've saved lives."

@MikeRamothwala said:

"We are all deeply hurt by Shona dearth as he was the epitome of what our nation needs but I find Malema comments on Milpark highly insensitive to the people who did there level best to save him and are currently hurting and still needs to get up and go to work #RIPShonaFerguson."

"Let me help you as a child of God or as a man who believes in God and in only god (Jesus) only, my brother first I say you need Jesus as a lifesaver, Connie and her husband were believers there was no way God would reveal her husband's death to you."

@nkaba_senne said:

"The problem here is when we as Africans undermine the gifts given to us by God and our ancestors."

@mavsipho said:

"Sounds like another level of witchcraft,u did not need her to prevent death if u could, shows the source of this power if there is any. If God reveals a situation to a child /Man of God, that individual has to pray for that person or situation, even if it takes fasting."

@Lekako3 said:

"What matters is that you conveyed the message. I know it's not easy for people who have gifts like you because sometimes people don't take you seriously."
