- The EFF's CIC Julius Malema recently sparked various interesting reactions on Twitter
- It all started after Malema basically endorsed the Sputnik vaccine when a tweep tweeted about it
- Many South Africans quickly headed to the comment section to share various reactions to Malema's tweet about the Russian vaccine
There has been a lot of talks around Covid-19 vaccines and having a celebrity or prominent figure endorse or show favour to a certain vaccine certain gets a lot of people talking. Julius Malema recently had people talking after he basically gave the Russian vaccine, Sputnik, a thumbs-up.
"Are you ready for the @sputnikvaccine," tweeted, @Sophie_Mokoena.
To which Malema responded:
"We want that one!"
Very soon many locals were taking to the comment section to share their thoughts about Malema and his thoughts about the Sputnik vaccine. Read a few of their interesting and insightful comments below:
"The safest vaccine in the about 56th country in the world has approved it."
"Best vaccine ever,effective against all Covid-19 variants."
"Sanity now prevails! Yes with #SputnikV @sputnikvaccine for South Africa the poor, elderly, students, and exploited proletariat."
@raboiyane hilariously commented:
"News headlines tomorrow: Malema wants Russian vaccine."
"Mara nawe Grootman. Why ubu quiet mabathenga lo Johnson Johnson wakhona?"
"CIC let @SAHPRA1 deal with all the checks and we will deal with facts, not hearsay and biases of mainstream media."
"Little Madiba said it, we're getting that one. Wena Sello o gate gabotse re boutela wena bjale. @Julius_S_Malema."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Julius Malema has weighed in on the Covid-19 vaccination as the nation prepares to kick off inoculation drives. The Economic Freedom Fighters leader expressed his disdain at those spreading conspiracy theories over the vaccine:
“Vaccinations have played an important role in eradicating viruses in the history of humanity. Polio and malaria have caused havoc in societies and it was through vaccines that human lives have been spared from death. Vaccines are a necessary and inevitable intervention in defeating Covid-19."
Malema condemned 'unscientific and nonsensical conspiracy theories' seeking to suggest the vaccines are part of a sinister plot to control the population.
