- The EFF has once again found themselves in South Africa's dogbox on Twitter
- The hashtag #VoetsekEFF has been trending as many locals vented abut the party's shortcomings
- Many of them have expressed their views on the party's recent tweets about the Beitbridge border and Zimbabwean nationals issue
The EFF is once again on South Africa's bad side. This comes after some of the EFF members expressed certain views about the country's ongoing Zimbabwe nationals and Beitbridge border debacle.
Mbuyiseni Ndlzoi in particular called on South Africans to welcome the Zim nationals into the country in a controversial tweet on Tuesday this week. Many locals did not agree with his statement.
As they do, many South Africans took to social media to air out their frustrations about the party. We compiled a few of the interesting tweets that sum up what the upset is all about. Read them below:
"Any political party that doesn’t reject illegal immigration in SA must be rejected by voters. There is no value that SA get from illegal immigrants. #VoetsekEFF"
"#PutSouthAfricanFirst and #CloseBeitbridgeBorder. Please choose a suitable name for this guy ,from the following ; Snai ,Sthipa ,Mshishi ,Mpara ,Kgakgavan ,Bhari ,Mpatha ,kgashu #VoetsekEFF Ndlozi #VoetsekANC"
"We forgive you but we don't accept the same mistake in the upcoming elections , i also did the mistake but ill recrify it .#VoetsekEFF #Ndlozi_domkop_with_a_PHD."
"I may have so many uncertainties about this country, but one thing I'm certain of is that EFF will never rule this country, no matter how F**d up the ANC may ever be.#VoetsekEFF"
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mbuyiseni Ndlolzi has joined the ongoing debate around the thousands attempting to cross the Beitbridge border post. The Economic Freedom Fighters MP has warned that shutting the border between SA and Zimbabwe could cause a greater disaster than the Covid-19 pandemic itself:
“Our humanity is measured not by how we treat our friends and loved ones. Our humanity is measured by how we treat strangers/foreigners. The SA border crisis during this pandemic is the true test of our humanity. Don’t be inhuman. Open the borders. Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique are us.”
The debate over the popular crossing, known as a corridor to the rest of Africa, was sparked by the imagery of the post showing hundreds awaiting their turn to pass through.
