Taking to social media on Thursday, the EFF shared a statement made by its president, Julius Malema.

According to Juju, white people were not the enemy of the revolution. However, he did explain white monopoly capital stood in the way of the economic liberation of black people.

"Malema: The enemy of our revolution is not white people, the enemy is white monopoly capital. What is white monopoly capital? Owners of means of productions. What are the means of production? The Banks, mines, land and any other thing that is strategic sector in our economy." the EFF's post read.

Briefly.co.za saw South Africans soon weighed in on Malema's statement, and it's evident the remark left Twitter divided.

While EFF supporters agreed with their party's leader, some people felt neither white people nor white monopoly capital was the issue.

"State ownership was tried in USSR and failed. Venezuela tried it recently and failed. The problem is man, our leadership not capital. Controllers of monopoly capital offered likes of Ramaphosa shares in their companies so they can betray the struggle and continue exploitation," social media user @CommissarNyang commented.
