ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa was in Chatsworth, Durban, to engage with community members over the weekend.
However, it was a little girl named Karusha Govender who stole the limelight. She had penned a letter to Ramaphosa, which he proceeded to read to the gathering while carrying her.
Karusha wrote, "Hello, Mr President. Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika. I love you; you are the best president."
Karusha wasn't quite done yet and indicated that she wished to speak. When she was handed the microphone, she said:
Hello President Cyril Ramaphosa, how are you today? My name is Karusha Govender. I saw you on TV and that you like to walk. Please come and walk with me while I ride my bicycle?
She urged the president to "make South Africa the best country in the whole wide world."
Karusha warmed the hearts of community members at the gathering as well as South Africans on social media.
The ANC shared the video on Twitter, where it has racked up close to 500 likes so far, Briefly.co.za gathered. Tweeps called the moment "cute" and "sweet."
