South African actor Fana Mokoena has fired shots at the ruling party's manifesto launch ahead of the local government elections. Mokoena took to Twitter where he brought up the financial issues being faced by the African National Congress.
On Monday, 27 September, the ANC held its manifesto launch in Pretoria and made numerous promises to citizens; given they are re-elected. Although the drama and pazazz were missing, the ANC managed to grapple a large stage and screens across Church Square.

Although it did not gain too much traction on the microblogging app, South Africans still had some strong and wordy opinions to share. Read some of them below:
"I’m tempted to respond & I am. Indeed it’s the kind of choice YOU would make as likely you aren’t a business person & as a result short-sighted. A business mind would erect the stage, give an impression & attract to remain in power & get back to paying & employing more..."
"It might have been a donation until you have fact(s) of your alleged expensive stage it’s better to hold his view or commend or horses. It’s NOT always about money."
"How do ANC employees expect to get paid since it’s a non-profit organization?"
"Just focus on resuscitating your acting career papa."
