If President Ramaphosa had expected a warm welcome waiting for him in KZN, he had a surprise when the crowds cheered for ex-president Jacob Zuma instead. Naturally, social media is in a frenzy over the situation
With African National Congress celebrations in full swing this week, the whole country is watching every move the ruling party makes. Unsurprisingly, social media is abuzz with comments on the situation.
Unfortunately for President Ramaphosa, he is the punchline to a lot of the humour doing the rounds.
KZN has given him the cold shoulder, especially if you compare it to the warm reception former president Jacob Zuma enjoyed.
People have naturally taken the oppurtunity to make fun of one of the most powerful men in the country.
Clement Manyathela, a reporter for EyeWitness News, posted this photo of a very disgruntled Ramaphosa and asked people to caption it.
@swanny19681 pointed out that the region was the area that supported the former president the most and that the reaction Ramaphosa had received was hardly surprising.
Lorenzo Adrian nailed his comment for the perplexed look on the President's face. Ramaphosa is probably wondering exactly that.
