South Africans are still upset with the EFF and have accused them of being a self-serving political party with their own interests at heart rather than those of normal South Africans.
A new hashtag is trending online called #ILeftEFF which has resulted in a renewed outpouring of anger towards the opposition party.
This comes shortly after South African Twitter users took to the social networking site to express their disdain for the EFF. Tweeps have started the hashtag #VoetsekEFF and it was trending for a while as people have been listing reasons to not support the political party.
Here are some reactions by Twitter users as they say that #ILeftEFF.
However, there were some Twitter users who took the opportunity to defend and voice their support for the EFF.
This comes as the EFF has stepped up recruiting and are currently out in force to win hearts and minds.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that EFF leader Julius Malema took to social media with an alleged official ANC document which revealed that the party is having issues paying salaries. Julius feels that this is amusing as the president claims to have millions.
Taking to social media, Julius posted what looks to be an official ANC letter explaining that salaries will be paid late this month due to cash flow issues. Julius shared this with a comment about President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Julius has no faith in Ramaphosa and takes every opportunity that he can to expose the ANC.
“Imaginary Billionaire President @CyrilRamaphosa. Sies.”
In other news, Julius Malema has shared his thoughts about the recent arrest of former ANC MP Vincent Smith. The leader of the EFF believes that the arrest is a deflection because Smith was nowhere near as powerful as the other corrupt ministers.
Taking to Twitter, Malema posted:
"Former ANC MP Vincent Smith can’t be referred to as a senior politician; we need the arrest of real senior politicians in the #BOSASA matter. Current and former ministers, they are the ones who must be arrested and be referred to as senior politicians, not some deflection."
