South Africa right now is fragile. As each day passes people are reminded of COVID-19, citizens have lost their jobs, starvation in the suburbs is on the incline due to lack of grants from corruption.
Alongside these troubles, citizens are now threatened by “division” of the rainbow nation. The EFF is the party that thrives on keeping citizens divided and incites violence for political gains.
The party has millions of followers behind them and having a glance on Social Media the followers brand themselves as “fighters”. It is these fighters that comment saying “We are ready to fight” or “Shall we loot Clicks?”.
Over the years the party has managed to create it’s narrative in such a way that its followers have become increasingly racist towards anyone that is not black.
The party pushes out media statements like it’s nothing, but many of these statements do not hold a solution that doesn’t involve controversy or something of a civilized manner. Going from the comments on these statements they do nothing more than injecting “anger” into their already brainwashed followers.
The parties’ very own Julius Malema has played a major part of this division, while he incites his followers to “Shoot the Boer” and offering some form of the “revolution” while he sips high priced champagne and rides on expensive yachts.
While being on these yachts many of his followers are suffering from extreme poverty and lack of education. The only solution the party leader has offered to fix this is to end “white monopoly”, another form of division brainwashed into the followers.
Countries around the world would have shut down this extremist party long ago, but it continues to push the narrative of division which in the end will see the destruction of a once prosperous South Africa.
Our vision is definitely NOT to put South Africans First. NO! We put Black People First! SA First narrative seeks to divert a confrontation of white domination, so that you think problems of SA are foreigners. NO! Do not be fooled: our problem is White Domination. #EFFMustRise— Mbuyiseni Ndlozi (@MbuyiseniNdlozi) September 6, 2020
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi pushed a Tweet this morning to attempt to create further division, the majority of his Tweets come under “hate speech” but the party members are somewhat excluded from this. Tweets like these pose a real threat, they are backed with no facts and merely an opinion which is used to increase the division we continue to speak about in this article.
Blacks have been murdered in farms for many years; chopped & fed to animals or buried in unidentifiable graves. These were NOT called farm murders. The idea of farm murder is a more recent phenomenon in which whites try to privilege white death: it must be dismissed as racist.— Mbuyiseni Ndlozi (@MbuyiseniNdlozi) September 6, 2020
Another fiasco pushed by the party is to “shutdown” clicks, they have sent threats to the company over the past few days over an alleged “racially insensitive” ad campaign.
Shutting down a company is not a solution, Many workers will be jobless and this will further affect the already fragile economy of South Africa. The party sees this as a solution but it comes across as further destruction to the country by using “cancel culture”.

As previously stated in this article, the followers see themselves as “fighters” and this can be seen by many of their followers speaking of “mobilizing” members to shut down clicks. With another member asking if it’s time to “loot” the company.
The party will deny the claims, but they are very much aware of what they are doing – Even if they take no action against clicks they know their “fighters” are already fueled with rage that they will take the matters into their own hands.
We are mobilizing our members over the night to prepare shutdown #clicksmustfall— RODNEY LEKWADU (@RLEKWADU) September 6, 2020
Guysssss hear me out!!!!!! EFF IS THE TRUTH!!!!!!!! #clicksmustfall— Babalwa Mneno (@barbiliscious) September 4, 2020
In a civilized country, these political tactics would be forbidden. The company should be taken to court and the matter to be investigated, It is then in the hands of the courts to decide if the Ad campaign by Clicks was intentionally pushed on the grounds of being racially insensitive. If found guilty the company should then be met with a fine and those who made the campaign be placed under disciplinary or suspension.
The EFF’s Ndlozi also Tweeted this morning with further division and speculating that white’s are blaming black people for farm murders that are happening in the country. This is another bold and dangerous statement to make with no facts to back it up.
When a white farmer is killed, whites assume its blacks who did it. But a closer look reveals that these farm murders are also white on white violence. Whites who know each other, live with each other & are often intimate with each other. It’s no different to murder anywhere else— Mbuyiseni Ndlozi (@MbuyiseniNdlozi) September 6, 2020
In the past, many political parties like the EFF have denied that farm attacks exist and said they are just a part of an existing crime problem within the country. However, Julius Malema was recorded telling his followers to “occupy the land without fear” – This is the type of language one would use if they were at war and rallying their troops.
The EFF party has diverted their attention and admits that farm murders exist now but they have twisted the narrative to say that whites are blaming blacks which allows them to continue to push the division. The marches that took place in South Africa against Farm murders over the past month clearly demonstrate that this is false, among the marches were people of all different races and religions – They made it clear that the march is about food security and not to do with race.
