South Africans were upset by President Ramaphosa's remark that there are no farm killings in the country. People were disappointed and called the president a liar for saying so. Ramaphosa was referring to a tweet by American President Donald Trump when he said there are no land grabs and no killing of farmers.
President Ramaphosa commented on a social media post by American president, Donald Trump, when he said there are no farm killings in South Africa.
He spoke to the United Nations about the now-famous tweet of Trump.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that this could have been an unexpected slip by the president, it caused an outcry among South Africans. In Ramaphosa's words, President Trump is misinformed and there is no killing of farmers in South Africa.
Here's what South Africans had to say on President Ramaphosa's claim:
@ARHWhitty - CR sounds like the government of the past that lived in denial about serious crime, racial crime, orchestrated campaigns of propaganda against some racial groups. Sorry Mr Billions CR you continue to loose credibility at almost every occasion. We hoped for a great nation builder!
@Skyewlkr - If he's lying to the world about this, he's lying to many others about many other things...true colors, but aligned to the ANC's policy of corruption at all levels
@Niren_ - Cyril speaks to please the audience no matter how many lies comes out of him. Very much like Trump.
@BbmblondeGene - you cannot trust a person who can lie with a straight face!
@DesireTablai - Nonsense! He didn't clarify that his utterance of 'no killing of farmers' was a reply on Trumps tweet.
@HyphenatedZuma - Even if he said it was a direct reply to Trump’s tweet that STILL doesn’t mean he can lie and say there are zero farm murders.
@Schoeman1964 - I mean he is such a great man and so good for this country but why would he lie about something like this?
