Mbuyiseni Ndlozi angered a lot of South Africans - including celebs like AKA - when he congratulated Siya Kolisi on the Springbok win while dismissing the rest of the team.

Ndlozi told the rest of the squad to go get their congratulations from Prince Harry and his comment did not sit well with social media users.

The People's Bae started trending on Twitter and with tweeps debating whether or not he was right.

EFF leader Julius Malema saw the party's national spokesperson trending online and he was soon to show his support, despite not knowing what's going on.

The EFF leader posted a GIF of Queen B whistling and wrote:

"I don't know why Mbuyiseni Ndlozi is trending but I agree with him. #Ndlozi"

The EFF leader blindly supporting Ndlozi divided social media users. Some felt it did not make sense for Juju to agree with something he doesn't even know about, while others shared Malema's sentiments.

Twitter user, @Rama58255872, commented:

"That makes the two of us Mr President."

Another tweep, @Sabe15496425, added:

"Now this is unity."

Ndlozi has since responded to the backlash his post gathered. The EFF spokesperson slammed an author who wrote that his attempt to rain on Mzansi and the Boks' parade failed.

Briefly.co.za reported Ndlozi slammed the "little white boy" who was trying to paint a picture that it was the EFF against Siya Kolisi.
