South Africans all have their own opinions regarding the political health of the country and many take to social media to express their views. One man has sent a message out to President Ramaphosa: Get dirty.
President Ramaphosa is currently making headlines after Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane found that he 'deliberately misled' Parliament (and South Africa) when he responded to a question about a R500 000 donation to his 2017 ANC presidential campaign.
Support for him may waver because of this, but the president still has loyal followers who believe in him and a 'new dawn'.
One such avid supporter of Ramaphosa took to Twitter to tell his president to stop being such a nice guy and start playing dirty.
Part of his message directed at the ANC leader read:
"You are too nice. Way too nice. And you're up against the dirtiest, no-holds barred scoundrels known to mankind. Get dirty."
A number of fellow tweeps echoed the man's sentiments and agreed that 'this is war'.
@mavestarcebisa5 - Yep! The gloves mist come off now
@BbmblondeGene - It's true! We cannot be left with these scoundrels running the Country into the ground.
@ArnoldVermaak - We have a fight for the soul of our country. Ramaphosa vs the Looters. Take them on Mr President. Defeat these vile forces of evil. Let’s get back to building our country. A New Dawn.
@RandyMoche - He needs to be ruthless and fight dirty too. He needs to be unforgiving to his enemies. They will never let him breathe. No unity here. It is war!!!
However, Briefly.co.za noticed that not everyone is in Ramaphosa's corner:
@Mkabayi11 - What status quo are you talking about?
@PhaahlaPhahlam2 - Didnt he lie to parliament?
@ndu_34184 - Get dirty how when he is already dirty himself? They wouldn't have anything on him if he actually was doing what he always preaches about. No one is above the law, all must comply to rules, no one is immune.
@TrevyTrev777 - Who's 'they'? Who are the 'dirtiest'? The President repeatedly lied to Parliament about the funds for his campaign and you want to blame other people for it?
