Mmusi Maimane, leader of the Democratic Alliance, claims that President Cyril Ramaphosa has chickened out of a pre-election debate. This sparked a debate in Mzansi, with people divided over the opposition party's stance.
President Cyril Ramaphosa is running scared from a debate with Mmusi Maimane according to the Democratic Alliance.
In a cheeky social media post, the DA leader suggested that chicken stock cubes go well with 'chickening' out of a political debate.
After a rebroadcast of the 1994 pre-election debate between Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk Mzansi had called for a similar debate between the heads of the ANC and DA parties.
Maimane was evidently eager to go toe-to-toe with his rival, but the ANC has distanced themselves from anything of the kind.
This has prompted Mzansi to voice their opinions on the matter, with some riled that Maimane seems to linger on the ANC's doings more than his own party's.
Others pointed out that the Democratic Alliance, as South Africa's opposition party, needed to keep the ANC on it's toes.
Some felt that a debate between Julius Malema and Maimane would be more fitting than one with a debate with the president himself.
Have a look at some of the responses to the matter:
