The EFF's Julius Malema has been the talk of the town here in South African and judging by a new hashtag that has been trending from early this morning, all of Mzansi is not done talking as yet.
#IfWeAllSpokeLikeJulius has been used by many South Africans to reflect on how the country would be a whole different place to live if everyone was a straight talker like Julius Malema has time and time again proved to be.
While many joked about Malema's crass manner of approaching things, others thought it would do a lot of good if they mimicked the EFF leader. Briefly.co.za explores some of the tweets made using the hashtag.
Read a few of them below:
"#IfWeAllSpokeLikeJulius we would realise total Economic Freedom"
"#IfWeAllSpokeLikeJulius this country would have lawless"
"#IfWeAllSpokeLikeJulius Education would've been fashionable in the country, fees would've fallen just like Blade will fall #BladeMustFall."
"Just because it's the truth doesn't mean you're not an asshole, people speak out of turn, use the wrong disrespectful tone, add negative divisive elements that won't have any constructive/positive effect, and hide behind the banner of the truth. #IfWeAllSpokeLikeJulius"
Briefly.co.za also 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. He was very critical of Ramaphosa's association with wealthy white people.
