- The hashtag Julius Malema has been trending all night on South African Twitter streets
- He has been trending after many South Africans questioned his silence surrounding the Covid-19 vaccine that will be rolling out in SA soon
- All the talk around the vaccine comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that vaccine administering will be starting in SA soon
The hashtag #JuliusMalema has been trending since Tuesday this week. It started trending after many South Africans wondered why the EFF leader, who is usually vocal about everything, was quiet about the Covid-19 vaccine, which many South Africans will soon be taking.
After President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the country will be rolling out Covid-19 vaccines, the entire country has been buzzing. While many seemed sceptical about it, others were in full support.
Seem that a lot of them would appreciate Julius Malema's opinion on it as they've all flocked to Twitter to find out why he hasn't said anything about it yet. Read a few of their many comments below:
"So South Africans want the 10% party president to say something against this vaccine. What is so special about this man? Down pointing backhand index? #JuliusMalema"
"Julius Malema is trending for being quiet about the Covid-19 vaccine. #JuliusMalema"
"Khongolosing is not going very well and now they complain to EFF #JuliusMalema."
"People don't vote for #EFF but when they are in trouble they run to #EFF #JuliusMalema #Covid19InSA"
"South Africans are funny... When Julius Malema is quiet la bua hore why a thotse, when he raise a view le tlore o thomile moshabi. Guys, if le hopotse Juju, just be honest with him le re, “Juju Reo hopotse ebile reya o rata re le bo darkie ba afrika borwa” lol. #JuliusMalema"
In earlier Briefly.co.za reports, President Cyril Ramaphosa spoke about the rolling out of the Covid-19 vaccine in phases during the Nation's Address on Monday evening. South Africans are now discussing their stance on the vaccine online.
Many SAns are not keen on being vaccinated, stating that the production of the Covid-19 vaccine was "too fast" and that they, therefore, cannot trust it. South Africans are suggesting that the vaccine be "trialled" by government officials before being used on the general public.
#VaccineForSouthAfrica is trending once again on Twitter as tweeps discuss whether or not they want to receive the dose.
