South Africans slammed President Cyril Ramaphosa over a statement he made about the ANC and the mistakes it made over the past couple of years.
On Tuesday, Fikile Mbalula posted a quote the South African head of state made recently and it was met with backlash on social media:
"“We have made mistakes - we have learned from them. We must never ever repeat them. We are here to serve the people of South Africa and that is how we would like the nation to see in us - through action we are working to regain our people’s trust,” Comrade @CyrilRamaphosa."
South Africans were left outraged and they added the ANC had 25 years to learn from its mistakes.
