South Africa has slipped into a deeper and scarier fear of the coronavirus. With this comes panic and of course condemnation to anyone who still behaves recklessly during these times - someone like the EFF's Julius Malema.
The red berets leader has been widely criticised for partying while maskless at a local Mzansi groove. Since the clip was shared by Twitter user @Goolammv, Juju has been trending on the popular app.
Many South Africans have used the hashtag #JuliusMalema to speak about their disappoint and disgust toward the leader who should be leading by example and not going around and behaving recklessly. A lot of staunch EFF supporters also used the hashtag to defend their leader.
Read a few of their tweets below.
"Those who are trying to find any little fault in Malema because they can't beat him politically #JuliusMalema."
"#juliusmalema lol, this video's funny though, man can't dance just like me. Let them roast him. It will either pass of destroy him. Oksalayo, he can't dance"
"This is the same hypocrite Julius Malema who told us alcohol is bad, yet was filmed being drunk at a party.#JuliusMalema"
Yesterday Briefly.co.za reported that a video clip showing the EFF's leader Julius Malema dancing and having a jol at an unknown groove has been shared online. In the clip, Juju can be seen completely unconcerned about being in a crowded place with no mask.
In the clip that was uploaded by a Twitter user, @Goolammv, Malema dances as if he has not a single worry in the world while many stand around him and egg him on. Only one person can be seen wearing a mask in the clip.
"Disgraceful scenes of Julius Malema partying up a storm with no mask on. The video was posted on Malema’s IG 4 days ago, the disgraceful and hypocritical EFF cult leader has since deleted this video. The area Julius was partying in is declared a hotspot," Goolamm captioned the post.
