South Africans are getting social media whiplash, one-week tweeps are demanding that the EFF must fall and this week the hashtag #ThankYouEFF was trending.
Social media users flooded Twitter with posts thanking the EFF for fighting for the rights of black people in South Africa and calling out racism and inequality.
Julius Malema is being hailed as a hero who is standing up for South Africans and restoring black dignity.
Earlier the hashtag was trending online called #ILeftEFF which 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.
Now the sentiments seem to have shifted in favour of the EFF.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that political party Freedom Front (FF) Plus has placed a complaint with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) against the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). The complaint was lodged for the EFF singing a song called "Kill the Boer" during protests in Senekal, Free State on Friday.
EFF members were protesting in a street in Senekal just before 7 AM, where two suspects in the murder of farm manager Brendin Horner appeared for the second time at the Senekal Magistrate's Court.
In the video footage, EFF can be heard singing the song as they protested against the dismantling of state property by "white arrogance", according to leader Julius Malema.
In other news, The Economic Freedom Fighters have already ensured that their presence is Senekal is known ahead of the trial on Friday.
Vehicle's blaring party views on the matter can be seen circling the Senekal Magistrate's Court, where the first protest against farm murders saw the community turning on law enforcement.
Party leader Julius Malema had earlier called upon 'ground forces' to mobilise and help to protect the court from a repeat, slamming the police officials involved for their 'cowardice' after a vehicle was set alight during the protest.
