- Photos of the president's first state visit have been shared
- Cyril Ramaphosa and his wife are currently in Tanzania
- Mzansi social media users had mixed reactions about the images
Photos of the country's president have been shared on social media. Cyril Ramaphosa and his wife, Dr. Tshepo Motsepe, are currently in Tanzania.
The official presidential Twitter account has shared beautiful photos of their arrival at the State House. The purpose of the visit is to allow the two leaders to discuss bilateral, continental and global issues.
This is the president's first state visit since he was elected in May 2019.
While most of the responses were positive and complimented the First Lady's beauty, others were more critical. Twitter user Tyrone Richards said:
"Mbeki was dethroned because he spent more time outside the country than inside. @CyrilRamaphosa seems to do the same. Rome is burning while he galavants. R2bn leaves country every day. Yes every day. Because of uncertainty. He must deal with the problems."
While Pietpip said:
"How about you visit your own country for change?"
"Go to public and daydream. Go to parliament and lie. Spend some time in court and go on vacation. Nice."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that the EFF released a public statement in which they reiterated their claim that Cyril Ramaphosa is acting on behalf of the "interests of white monopoly capital". As evidence, they cited the recent report which alleges that donors to Ramaphosa's CR17 campaign included several wealthy business figures, such as billionaire Nicky Oppenheimer and former ABSA CEO Maria Ramos.
