"I have Not been this Heartbroken in a very longtime. My heart is Bleeding. @CyrilRamaphosa @MYANC this Can’t be Right. This is Not the ANC I Voted for. How do you explain this. I am ever so SAD @tumisole @CountryDutyZA I’m willing to make a substantial donation," the post was captioned.

"Magogo like my own magogo is a beneficiary of a comprehensive social security policy implemented by the anc govt since 1994," Mbalula said.
"Lebo there's an RDP house there magogo was seating in the veranda in this case the veranda is built of shacks. Is the Tshirt an issue or the veranda ?" he added.
