@manumaboko said:

“Dr Tumi is fulfilling his mandate. To preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost EFF. There’s nothing wrong if he mix himself with the EFF. Well done Dr Tumi...”

@mkaykekana said:

“Timing is wrong for Dr Tumi to be addressing the crowds, it encourages distrust in light of recent charges that he is yet to be exonerated for. #EFFFreedomDay”

@mathlarliB said:

“Featuring an fraud & corruption accused suspect to lead a prayer session? Your jokes never run out I tell you then even have the nerve to talk about fighting against corruption.”

Meanwhile, Briefly News had previously reported that the EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has stepped up and shown his support for South African gospel star Dr Tumi after he and his wife were released from jail on bail after they handed themselves in to the police following allegations of fraud.

In his post, the EFF member shared a Bible verse as well as a photo of Dr Tumi. The caption of the post suggests that Ndlozi believes that the gospel singer is innocent and that his innocence will be proven soon.

While many people loved seeing Ndlozi showing some support for Dr Tumi, not all comments were positive as many were still in disbelief around the fraud scandal. Read a few of their comments below:

@BlackCulture_HM said:

"We all know he is innocent."

@just_vibesjeh said:

"So Zuma must be arrested but when it comes to Dr Tumi, it's 'No weapon formed against him shall prosper.' Interesting."

@ODWAkaTIME joked:

"Life is hard. Dr Tumi sells music and he's a medical doctor. But still commits fraud. So who am I? I haven't even bought new underwear in a year. It is time I started stealing too."
