Briefly.co.za saw the video sparked quite the reaction on social media. So, we decided to take a look at some of the best responses.

Social media user @MoDriekop commented: "History. I also like the fact that President Matamela Ramaphosa got President Thabo Mbeki his seat next to President Mandela back after Mama Sisulu decided to occupy it unaware that TM didn’t have a seat."
David Khasebe II, who goes by the Twitter handle @FMevangelist, added: "This is romantic. Fact is that’s where the celebrations ended for Africans. We then saw one own goal after another. What’s my point - stop celebrating alone as politicians and smell widespread poverty and underdevelopment."
