EFF leader Julius Malema has managed to make the most out of his exodus from the ANC, but #MalemaReturnsToANC has been trending in SA nonetheless.
Thousands of citizens reacted to the claim that the Red Beret boss had chosen to forsake his party, which has enjoyed immense success in a short space of time, to return to his original political home.
Former party spokesperson and EFF member Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has set the record straight, commenting that:
"Those promoting this hashtag #MalemaReturnsToANC are promoting fake news! There is no CIC Julius Malema who is returning to the ANC."

While the EFF leader himself has yet to respond to the viral trend, his last social media post provides some insight into his views of the ANC:
"This hopeless leadership cannot even inspire confidence at a time when we need it the most. Our loved ones are falling by the wayside! We are fast headed to a dark spirited period of depression and hopelessness. Sad day indeed."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that the EFF had slammed President Cyril Ramaphosa as SA's 'absent father'.
The Red Berets has issued a scathing statement, condemning the ANC leader's handling of the Covid-19 pandemic:
"The EFF has watched with disdain the lack of decisiveness, consistency and leadership since the beginning of the spread of Covid-19 in SA. The response to Covid-19 by SA has been characterised by refusal of guidance, lack of foresight and a deliberate prioritisation of profits over human life. Leading the incompetence has been one Cyril Ramaphosa."
