- The hashtag #RIPEFF has been trending on Twitter since early this Friday morning

A new hashtag has been born that South Africans have been using to express their discontent with the EFF - #RIPEFF. The hashtag has already been used hundreds of times by South Africans who don't want to see the EFF in power.
Some of the reasons cited by many of the locals for the new hashtag is that prominent EFF leaders had encouraged SAcans to welcome Zim nationals into the country, they also mentioned the VBS looting scandal that the EFF was embroiled in, among other reasons.
Briefly.co.za has compiled some of the most interesting tweets made by locals under the #RipEFF hashtag. Read a few of the below:
"Am sorry but to say this but Eff must be laid to rest at this rate, we can’t have an organization that want to gamble with the future of this country by putting African people first in South Africa Flag of South Africa #RIPEFF."
"I don't know the name of Herman Mashaba's political party but I will definitely know by the next elections. I thought Julius Malema was the man for the job bhuu naaa. #PutSouthAfricanFirst #VoetsekEFF#RIPEFF."
"The death of the EFF was inevitable after stealing the VBS money of those grannies who worked hard to get that money , Hamba kahle EFF . #RIPEFF"
"Julius Malema wants all illegal immigrants to come unchecked, even worse during the Scamdemic. But they want elections to be postponed and Schooling to be postponed because of the pandemic.#RIPEFF"
Briefly.co.za previously reported that 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.
