When Cyril Ramaphosa was elected president of South Africa, the country had hope- he's an established businessman who had the ability to restore the deteriorating economy.

Add the fact that his administration promised to implement land expropriation without compensation, South Africans were hit hard by Ramaphoria.

But, since he took over from the controversial Jacob Zuma, VAT has gone up to 15%, petrol prices keep on rising and thus far many South Africans remain without land.

Some social media users have started to doubt Ramaphosa's understanding of building the economy after he stated expropriation without compensation would contribute to growth.

A lot of people fear land reform would turn South Africa into a second Zimbabwe, and AfriForum's Ernst Roets is one person who questions whether Ramaphosa knows what he is doing.

Briefly.co.za saw by the reaction his post received, he is not the only one who feels Ramaphosa might not be such a great thing for the economy.

Social media user @kidgeblog commented, "Ramaposa is not a self made man. He is the result of mining houses smoothing the way for him. This has backfired and he now would rather sink us than loose the election."
