Tim Modise took to social media to share his concerns about the current state of the country- and tweeps agreed with him.
It is no secret things are not great in the country at the moment- unemployment is high, fuel hikes have reached record heights, VAT is up and not to mention the corruption that crippled the ruling party.
Responding to news that students walked out of an exam because it was too difficult, Modise shared his concerns about South Africa.
He wrote, "Exams difficult, schools burnt for roads, fire stations destroyed for councilor’s non appearance, etc. I can’t believe we fought for freedom in order to lose our sense of purpose like this. It feels like we are in trouble or have I lost perspective?"
And he was not the only one who felt that way, Briefly.co.za gathered tweeps shared his concerns, some adding South Africa is doomed.
Palesa Morudu commented, "Ethiopia, which for many years was a face of African poverty is on the up. Rwanda, 24years after a genocide is also flying high. South Africa, 24years after the end apartheid is a site of an orgy of xenophobic violence and mad and senseless politics."
