- Hundreds of South Africans have shared their thoughts on the EFF's Julius Malema's response to Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address

After reading an article compiled by Briefly.co.za, South Africans have shared their many thoughts on EFF leader Julius Malema's comments on President Cyril Ramaphosa's latest State of the Nation Address.
After reading about what Julius had to say about the president's speech, many locals expressed that they felt like Malema was speaking more out of anger than from a justified political view. Not all locals however thought this as many of them agreed with Malema's statements.
Briefly.co.za has taken a look at some of the various interesting comments found in the comment section of the article that were made by South Africans who either side with Malema or Ramaphosa.
Read their comments below:
Ika Bhala said:
"Malema's words are fuelled by anger, bitterness, and irrationality, all he opposed about CR is unfounded and uncalled-for. Ramaphosa's good works speak louder for him, all the public against Malema's empty words can attest to that. CR's good actions speak louder than words!"
Ferriss Blessed said:
"He called Zuma worse names but today he's having "tea" with him, and somehow people take him seriously... Poor souls, or should I say confused souls..."
Mamza Lesoro said:
"Okusalayo Malema stated facts. Let us not run away from the truth. He is raising the same issues that ordinary people have been debating."
Thabiso Motloung said:
"Politics is a mind game! In public they act as if they are fighting, behind closed doors they are friends and looting together! If you want peace, leave politicians alone because they are actors as well!"
An earlier Briefly.co.za article reported that Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, replied to President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the Nation address and called him incompetent, incapacitated and unreliable.
Malema did not mince his words or hold back as he criticised the president on a number of issues. He said the only thing Ramaphosa had accomplished in his three years in office was to remove the Gupta family and replace them with white capitalists.
Malema named the Ruperts, Oppenheimers, Steven Koshoff, the Mennels and all other white people who played a part in Ramaphosa's election.
