EFF leaders and Mzansi had a field day at the expense of ANC campaign leader Fikile Mbalula after he mistakenly wrote “Vote EFF” on Twitter. The comedy-drama was enough to make Mbalula the 2021 elections joke of the weekend.


The embarrassing moemish was exposed by the EFF’s Floyd Shivambu who seemingly took a screenshot of Mbalula’s tweet to repost the bloop.

Right in the middle of a Sunday afternoon campaign, the poor Mbalula tweeted “The President is now in Ward 26 addressing the community in Turfloop. ANC in Polokwane. VOTE EFF BUILDING BETTER COMMUNITIES.”

Shivambu, who couldn’t believe his eyes, swiftly spotted the blunder while Mbalula was scrambling to delete it. He said Mbalula can hardly hide his ‘intentions.’

“This is no longer a mistake:- it’s a clarion call that all people of South Africa must #VoteEFF! #LandAndJobsManje! Namhlanje!” Shivambu said before sending the red party’s social media followers into ecstasy.

The tweet was also grabbed by EFF MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi who said “The ANC head of elections Fikile Mbalula has called on all South Africans to #VoteEFF,” said Ndlozi.

The controversial daughter of former president Jacob Zum, Duduzile Zuma-Sambundla, did not let the drama pass, she weighed in to say:

“Could it be that my good friend Mbalula is batting for the wrong team? I think the EFF promised him a position or something,” she wrote.


The blushing Minister of Roads and Transport later did what he could do by telling Shivambu the tweet was an autocorrect mistake.

“Hold it Mr Shivambu, not so fast. That Twitter hashtag [is an] autocorrect. I want you to #VoteANC,” Mbalula said.
