Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, member of the Economic Freedom Fighters, has taken to the social media platform Twitter to make a bold statement.
He tweeted that the ANC is a pandemic sweeping the country as Covid-19 wreaks havoc on people's lives.
"ANC is a Pandemic!"
"That’s the tweet!"
Naturally, this sparked a debate, with some people taking his side and agreeing with his statement while others hurled allegations back at him.
Here are some of the reactions from Twitter users to Ndlozi's spicy post:
"Dr Mbuyiseni Quintin Ndlozi is slowly killing his political party."
"It's better it's killed by the ones who formed it that spectators."
"And you the vaccine."
"2021 let it be the year for solutions. You politicians are the same. But I will take anyone seriously if they come with ideas for community development. Shouting and screaming from across the road won't take us anywhere."
"I'm convinced now that these people don't really hate you or your tweets otherwise they would have long blocked you. They indeed enjoy your tweets hence always camping here. They're getting bored when they don't hear from you, EFF official page, CIC, DP as well as top 6!"
