- After President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation on Sunday, Julius Malema took to social media to share a photo
- The image shows a sign which reads: "It will end in tears"
- Juju and his party are not in support of the relaxed lockdown regulations
Julius Malema has been vocal about his opposition to relaxed lockdown regulations ever since the country moved to lockdown Level 4.
The EFF leader took to Twitter on Sunday night to voice his opinion after President Cyril Ramaphosa revealed plans to downgrade the lockdown to Level 3 from 1 June.
Juju did not write anything, he simply shared a shrugging emoji and posted a photo that reads:
"It will end in tears."
Take a look at his post below:
Social media users were divided on his post, some agreed with Malema that relaxing lockdown restrictions would be catastrophic while others expressed their relief over Lockdown Level 3.
Twitter user, @Moose_Moosely, commented:
"It seems like Mr President is given up on us!"
Another, @Sabelo_waka_God, added:
"I agree. The numbers keep growing yet we want things to get back to normal. It's winter time yet we want to ignore that fact."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported EFF has come out in fierce opposition to the current Covid-19 national lockdown being lifted in South Africa to Level 3.
In a scathing statement issued by the party in response to Ramaphosa's speech on Sunday evening, the party commented that:
"The EFF rejects, with deep sadness, what is effectively the ending of the Covid-19 lockdown. The announcement by Ramaphosa must be read as a resignation speech from fighting Covid-19 and saving lives, especially black lives."
