South African Twitter users have taken to the social networking site to express their disdain for the EFF. Tweeps have started the hashtag #VoetsekEFF and it has been trending for a while now as people have been listing reasons to not support the political party.
Many Saffa tweeps are talking about the EFF's lack of awareness on subjects such as GBV and human trafficking. Other tweeps believe that the EFF is concerning themselves more with issues relating to foreign nationals in SA.
EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi took to his Twitter to speak about the borders in SA. He said:
"Why take our attention to the border and away from our oppressors? The border didn't oppress us, whites did, today with ANC's permission."
Take a look at Ndlozi's full tweet below:
Here's what some Saffa tweeps had to say to the EFF:
"EFF has chosen foreigners over South Africans, let's not forget this next year in local elections #VoetsekEFF."
"Young people who are supporting EFF are a disgrace to our country, I mean your heads are not functioning properly, shame #VoetsekEFF."
In similar news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on South Africans dragging Juju as #VoetsekMalema trended on social media. After this weekend's incident with Clicks South Africa, EFF leader Julius Malema called for action in the form of a tweet.
Juju protested the fact that Clicks posted an ad for a haircare company in which it displays various types of hair. In the ad, the hair of a woman of African descent is portrayed as "dry and damaged".
Clicks has since released an apology. This did not stop Juju from asking EFF supporters to "attack" the store in a tweet. This has caused many social media users to start the hashtag #VoetsekMalema. Twitter users have voiced many concerns through this hashtag and it has been trending since this morning with more people constantly joining in.
