EFF leader Julius Malema says President Cyril Ramaphosa will be held personally liable for the loss of lives as a result of the coronavirus because he recklessly reopened the economy.
"We have warned Cyril Ramaphosa, who has constituted himself as an ally of white-monopoly capital and the coronavirus, that he will be held personally responsible for the loss of life that is going to happen as a result of his decisions," Malema said.
"To make matters worse, the President of the country has allowed the sale of alcohol in a country that has a history of high fatalities and hospitalisation due to alcohol-related inter-personal violence," Malema said.
Malema's lengthy address was dotted with attacks against Ramaphosa, as he used the occasion to cast aspersions on the president's struggle credentials.
This is not the first time Malema has questioned Ramaphosa's struggle credentials.
