"Some are working hard on these streets trying to perpetuate the lie that there is a difference between Ramaphosa and Zuma and that there are two ANCs: one good, the other bad.
"NO! They are all the same: nepotistic greedy come-Tsotsi and comprador bourgeoisie ANC and it won’t change!"
The post gained huge traction, attracting more than 2 000 likes and close to 400 comments. It sparked a torrent of debate among social media users, who did not hesitate to air their views on the heated topic.
Ndlozi tweet causes social media uproar
Briefly News took a sneak peek at some of the most interesting views to come from the post.
"You can't criticise Cyril without dragging Zuma's name uyanyanyisa."
"I guess Malema and Shivambu will never change too. These are former ANCYL leadership."
"Chief, the problem is SA voters are voting for this party. Check our performance at Bi election."
"I'm sure you've got enough on your plate to be meddling in ANC internal business!"
"Remind people that we don't have a Ramaphosa or Zuma problem in this country, we have an ANC problem."
EFF’s Ndlozi shades Ramaphosa over ‘crusty’ complexion, Mzansi left in stitches
In another controversial story, Briefly News previously reported that Ndlozi, unable to help himself from throwing some shade, made a wry comment on Ramaphosa's dry complexion.
The shady EFF leader humorously remarked that Mr President might be using too much baby powder in his skincare regime.
Heading online, @MbuyiseniNdlozi shared the cheeky statement:
"Ranko has taken this thing of Johnson & Johnson too far! Baby power [sic] for what now?" he captioned the misspelt post.
While some social media users found the tweet absolutely hilarious, others felt it was super wrong to make fun of an elder. Still, others had a little advice to share with Ndlozi on the difference between 'powder' and his incorrectly spelt 'power'.
