Julius Malema has seemingly been exposed this week – after video clips of the EFF leader getting in the festive spirit were uploaded on Wednesday.
In two separate outdoor events, Juju can be seen dancing, mingling with others, and ultimately disregarding the advice on gatherings dished out by the government in December.
In the videos, social distancing is largely ignored, very few masks are in sight, and Malema even gets involved in a conga during one of the clips.
Despite the damning videos, the EFF, and Malema himself, have been defiant in the face of criticism.
Another viral video of Malema dancing among a crowd of people with a glass in his hand caught the attention of social media users.
Disgraceful scenes of Julius Malema partying up a storm With no mask on. Video was posted on Malema’s IG 4 days ago, the disgraceful and hypocritical EFF cult leader has since deleted this video. The area Julius was partying in, is declared a hotspot. pic.twitter.com/a9r8g6a7UT— Goolam (@goolammv) December 30, 2020
The EFF issued a short statement on Wednesday, claiming that Malema attended the gatherings with 'immediate family' – and they even argue that the CIC didn’t break any rules that applied during Level 1 of lockdown.
Looks like it's not just Julius Malema doing things that he told the public not to do and making rules for people that don't apply to him. Even other EFF leaders are doing things they told the public not to do. #EFF#Malema #COVID19#Coronavirus pic.twitter.com/OMconAc6CF— Toko Masemola (@TokoMasemola) December 30, 2020
Both beautiful events of Black Love were of immediate family, attended by the nine children of Koko Sarah Malema and all of her grandchildren.— Economic Freedom Fighters (@EFFSouthAfrica) December 30, 2020
