As the #PutSouthAfricanFirst movement gains momentum, there has been mixed emotions in the street. On the other hand, the EFF has found themselves on the wrong side of things and it does not look very good as this might as well be the end of EFF.
South Africans are angry and want their needs to be put first. They want jobs and a clean country. Leaders such as Gayton Mckenzie have hit the streets of Johannesburg in search of foreign nationals employed instead of South Africans. The EFF and its leader Julius Malema are in the streets visiting restuarants to check the employment ratio between foreign nationals and local citizens.
The EFFs gesture could be a good thing but the people do not want this and have been expressing that Malema is a sell out and he is doing damage control under the hashtag #VoetsekEFF. The EFF believes that 60% of South Africans should be employed while only 40% of foreign nationals are also employed. South Africans are not in support of this and want 100% of employment for theirselves.
The #VoetsekEFF implies that the EFF should not get any votes anymore. The worst part is that the #PutSouthAfricanFirst movement will be one of the reasons for voting in 2024 and parties who find theirselves in the wrong side will obviously suffer. In this case it is obviously the EFF.
This could simply mean the EFF has come to the end of the road unless they change their road. However, this might not work as it would be hard for the EFF and Malema to be trusted ever again. Malema will therefore regret ever coming up with their foreign policy. As one guy tweeted that Malema killed the EFF by going against South Africans.
As a politician, you should be able to listen to what South Africans what and put those needs first. Do you think the EFF will ever recover from this? Share your thoughts down below.
