- Julius Malema has been trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons
- The EFF leader and his party were slammed for standing against unity in SA
- Juju's post about Burna Boy pushed South Africans over the edge and he was dragged online
On Thursday, Briefly.co.za reported Julius Malema took to Twitter to share his excitement about Burna Boy coming to perform in his "home", South Africa.
The post immediately sparked outrage on social media and South Africans were not impressed. The EFF leader's tweet followed several SA musos, including rapper AKA, demanding an apology from the Nigerian performer for past comments he made about Mzansi.
Earlier that day, Juju also criticised the Springboks for meeting with Johann Rupert. The EFF has been vocal about its stance against the Boks - which they claim to be a symbol of apartheid.
EFF national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has been criticised over his remarks on the national rugby team winning the #RWC2019 from the start. However, it did not stop him from calling for the fall of the Springboks in Parly.
The rest of the EFF shares Ndlozi's sentiments on the Boks and Malema boldly showed the People's Bae support on social media without knowing what the fuss was about at the time.
However, Juju's Burna Boy post was the last straw for Mzansi and the EFF leader and his party have now come under fire.
Malema trended on social media on Friday and South Africans held nothing back as they slammed the EFF for having an "agenda against unity".
Some went as far as to apologise for voting for the EFF in the previous national elections.
Twitter user, @Philanthropistz, commented:
"I want to apologise to all South Africans for voting @EFFSouthAfrica. I almost threw the country to the dogs, never again #Malema."
