Fikile Mbalula shared a video of a new ANC supporter, Peter Mac from Benoni. In the video, Mac says he is voting ANC because he believes the party’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa, will facilitate positive change and will bring the money back to South Africa.
I’m voting ANC because Mr Ramaphosa is combating crime and corruption and he’s bringing people to justice.He’s bringing the money back to South Africa,” says Mac.
Mzansi reacted to the video, which was shared on social media.
Many users were excited about ANC’s ‘new dawn’ and a potentially multiracial ruling party and consequently, country, Briefly.co.za found.
Some users, on the other hand, were sceptical, and felt that Mac’s support of the ANC was simply because of Ramaphosa’s likelihood of protecting white interest in capital. Others criticised Mbalula and the ANC for flaunting white supporters as though they were more meaningful than the support of the rest of the country.
Others simply failed to see any change in the new ANC cabinet.
