Top Economic Freedom Fighters officials have voiced their condemnation over the way the Covid-19 pandemic has been handled.
Dr TK Lekalakala took to social media to share her views on the dire situation in SA hospitals, pointing out that the virus wasn't the only pressure:
"I was listening to 702 and this surgeon was discussing how not only do they need ICU beds for Covid-19 patients, but because of the spike in violence due to the reselling of alcohol. They need ICU beds for trauma patients. It's such a mess."
EFF leader Julius Malema shared this post, adamant that the party had warned the government over unbanning liquor:
"We warned you Cyril Ramaphosa. It will end in tears!"

Former spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has also weighed in with his less-than-optimistic opinion on the situation:
"In July healthcare systems will collapse due to Covid-19 numbers. Quarantine zones will be futile as they don’t have ventilators and enough medical staff. The economy will fall on its knees, not due to lockdown, but it will simply be impossible to operate anything amidst mass death."
Ndlozi insists that the situation has exposed the government as having no solid plan to deal with the situation:
"The story of Covid-19 exposes a simple truth: the government has no plan. But there is no plan that can ever work to fight Covid-19 based on the logic of capitalist market uncertainty. We had to plan everything if we wanted to avoid mass death: including food production and supply!"
Briefly.co.za reported that the EFF had strongly condemned the reopening of the economy and the unbanning of liquor sales, adamant that the government would be responsible for countless deaths in favour of chasing coin.
