EFF leader Julius Malema hit the nail on the head with his prediction the country was moving to alert level 2 of the lockdown.

Ahead of the “family meeting” on Sunday, Malema dropped a cheeky prediction that SA was going to return lockdown level 2 as Covid-19 infections continue to rise in SA.

On Sunday night President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the country was moving to adjusted level 2 effective from Monday.

While alcohol sales are permitted, Ramaphosa announced the new curfew hours are from 11pm to 4am, with bars and restaurants having to close by 10pm.

Funerals cannot be attended by more than 100 people and social distancing must be observed. No night vigils and “after tears” parties are allowed.

This is not the first time Malema has predicted the country’s move to a different level under the Covid-19 lockdown.

Earlier this year, he tweeted that SA was going to be downgraded to level 1.

“I can smell level 1,” he said at the time.

His prediction had many in their feels, with rapper Cassper Nyovest calling on Malema to predict his future regarding becoming a billionaire.

Hai, nna kao tshepa (I trust you) from now on! Please tell me something: am I going to be a billionaire or not, grootman? Can you smell it?” asked Cassper.

On social media, the politician had tongues wagging after his latest successful prediction.

Here is a snapshot of some reactions:
