JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighter's second-in-command, Floyd Shivambu, has taken to social media to throw some political jabs at President Cyril Ramaphosa and the African National Congress.
Heading to Twitter, Shivambu stated that it is quite clear that the ANC and Ramaphosa have not listened to South African voters.
Shivambu insinuated that the ANC and Ramaphosa calling for a re-run of elections is the same as a boxer who has been knocked out but still tries to get up and to continue fighting. He went on to say that even with a re-run of elections, the ANC will no longer be part of the 'political surface'.

South African's have mixed reactions to Shivambu's tweet
Social media users had quite a number of reactions to Shivambu's jabs at the ANC and Ramaphosa.
EFF supporters rallied behind Shivambu's call for a re-run of elections to beat the ANC while others pointed out that the EFF was unable to win a single municipality in the local government elections.
Here are some of their responses:
"Lead us, Floyd, lead us to a SA that has strict border control."
"You don’t have even one municipality and think you will improve, think again you Double Exposure 10% party. You have reached your ceiling now is the time for your downward trend"
"EFF is an ANC youth league on steroids. We will like every comment by EFF but we will vote for ANC or not vote. Viva ANC EFF viva"
"The aim is not to re-run elections, he wants to finish the ANC, cause he knows very well that people who voted for ANC last week, are too angry now. They won't vote for ANC again never, their children are writing exams with electricity and water "
"Ramaphosa is declaring another election before 2024 when they are limping like that, let them bring it on, we are super ready!!!"
"Electric cars, what else": EFF's Floyd Shivambu pokes fun at Ramaphosa's plans for SA
Briefly News previously reported that Floyd Shivambu, the Economic Freedom Fighter's second-in-command, is not convinced that President Cyril Ramaphosa's plans to produce electric cars in South Africa will ever become a reality.
Shivambu is of the opinion that Ramaphosa's recent declaration to locally manufacture eco-friendly vehicles is merely a "hallucination".
Taking to social media, Shivambu quoted a tweet by News24 that highlighted Ramaphosa's plans for electric cars and stated that only fools think that the President will actually deliver on this promise.
