The controversial party leader, Julius Malema of the EFF has ordered his fighters and ground forces to attack Click stores on Monday. This comes after a Social Media user gained popularity on one of his Tweets where Clicks were accused of posting a racially insensitive Ad campaign.
NewsliteSA previously reported on the incident where we saw Clicks respond with an apology and removal of their Ad campaign.
Today Julius Malema has made noise on Twitter and threatened Clicks with “@Clicks_SA see you tomorrow. Fellow fighters and ground forces; ATTACK!!!”
@Clicks_SA see you tomorrow. Fellow fighters and ground forces; ATTACK!!!— Julius Sello Malema (@Julius_S_Malema) September 6, 2020
This week Julius Malema and the EFF party have sent out numerous Tweets with threats towards the company but have yet to show any responses from Clicks, they said they do not accept the apology from the company.
“Do the right thing and suspend all those who were involved in that racist project and terminate the contract of the company that agreed to commission it, if you know what is good for you. Won’t repeat myself…”
At this stage, it’s unclear what the EFF party is inciting when they use the words “ATTACK” but it cannot be anything good for Clicks.
What others are saying
Many Twitter users have responded with not so kind words and they do not believe that attacking the company is the way forward.

It seems as if you have lost all human conscience in you.
I hope these blind loyalists of yours ultimately get to see you for who you are.
These stores employ thousands of South Africans, mainly people of colour. It's sad AF that we're in a pandemic and Malema incites violence that threatens people's livelihoods. @GovernmentZA @PresidencyZA @Our_DA @HermanMashaba @SAPoliceService @A_C_D_P— Melania Frump ✨ (@Mel_NoGibs0n) September 6, 2020
EFF leaders like pushing their sheeps into trouble. They will get arrested, they will get shot, they will get criminal records. Also, other black south africans who work for clicks will lose a fraction of their salaries. Continue "fighters" , continue— 0nk3 (@0nk32) September 6, 2020
