@TshwareloMat1_ said:

"How can poverty in Africa be eradicated should we continue giving occupations to the Cubans?! We get it that you like the former SG of that country, but think beyond!"

@nhlalisuthi0206 shared:

"The EFF and its Ndlozi HATE South Africans with a passion. Always looking to protect and put foreigners waaay ahead of South Africans. EFF never says put SA first. Always "remove borders", now "we are Cubans". South Africans are now showing EFF flames in by-elections!!"

@kendogsta tweeted:

"At least we know now that you guys accept selective corruption."

@gwele_zola asked:

"Sounds just about a perfect catchphrase to get everyone dizzy including opposition parties. How many SA engineers are employed currently? How will they be part of the enlisting in order to transfer skills sought? What happened after deployment of the army there?"
