- The EFF has slammed Roland Schoeman's suggestion that he become sports minister
- Social media users slammed the political party for their views after the EFF called Schoeman a 'doper' and a 'racist'
- Roland Schoeman suggested that he would make a good sports minister for South Africa
Earlier this month Roland Schoeman suggested that he should become sports minister. A lot of people thought it was a great idea, however, some people didn't think so.
Among those is the EFF who have slammed Schoman and accused him of being a 'racist' and a 'doper'.
South Africans took to social media to ridicule the EFF and criticise their condemnation of Schoeman.
The EFF condemn Schoeman for sports minister bid
The EFF issued a statement on its social media platforms condemning Schoeman for his suggestion.
Social media users took to the internet to react to the EFF's statement.
"The @EFFSouthAfrica hatred towards white people is detrimental to the development of our country. There is good and bad in all people. People of all races and backgrounds should be allowed to participate in the enhancement of our country."
"Racist Roland Schoeman"
"(I do not support Roland's offer, but this is silly EFF)."
"Party of statements this one, they issue statements on letters written in tongue and cheeks. EFF is running out of ideas, they are now worried about ANC internal politics. Or is it a matter of any chance to insult Ramaphosa? But this is what happens when one man's feelings dictate all."
"Not all whites are bad and not all Africans are good. Nathi Mthethwa failed dismally. What I read in @roelandschoeman is that Nathi Mthethwa failed and has to be replaced by someone capable like him. But if there is an alternative, put the alternative in. Nathi FAILED! Period!"
