President Cyril Ramaphosa has stirred up some mixed reactions from social media users after heading online to reaffirm the African National Congress's commitment to fixing Mzansi.
It seems his campaign speech hit the wrong mark with many young South Africans who have become disillusioned with the ANC.
Heading to his official Twitter account, @CyrilRamaphosa shared a clip of the lengthy speech he gave to a small crowd.
"The ANC is a big organisation, things can take time. But once it gets into top gear, you will see. Kuzosukamaphepha kusal’amazambane," he captioned the post.

"You think people of South Africa are fools, we are tired of empty promises Mr president, unemployment is very high now you telling us kuzosukamaphepha kusal' amazambane. That's true kuzobanjalo ANC must on the bench now, we are tired of your empty promises."
"It gets into top gear, makes false promises then goes back to its normal self once elections are over. Predictable..."
"27 years to get into top gear? Aowa guys. Rest for 5 years. Go strategise and come play when you are serious. At this rate and pace, you are creating an unstable environment for all."
"Ba tlhomola pelo nou. They wanna remain in POWER so that they can continue making our lives a living hell. They eat alone, they kill us, they starve us n then burn the food we desperately need. They take our jobs, make ish more and more expensive."
"We are not your puppets."
"Contradicting yourself, a big organisation shouldn’t be struggling to deliver basic needs to the people. 27 years later people still don’t have access to clean water, no roads, overcrowded schools and no access to tertiary education. I don’t even want to talk about jobs."
