“I love you too”: President Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign trail has him dropping the L word, Mzansi in stitches
Previously, Briefly News reported on another video of our President going viral. We know the campaign trail has our politicians doing some pretty questionable things to rally support for the elections. For President Cyril Ramaphosa, he took it to the next level by telling a young girl he wishes she was his daughter, saying, "I love you."
But even with all the campaigning, our President hasn't forgotten Covid-19 protocols and rejected the young girl's handshake. He instead opted for the more sanitary elbow-bump.
The elated young girl also took the opportunity to let Ramaphosa know her hopes and dreams, saying one day she wants to be a doctor and even take on the role of president.
