- President Cyril Ramaphosa threw shade at Mmusi Maimane for asking the same questions over and over again
- Ramaphosa called the DA leader a "broken record" while answering questions in Parliament
- The president's jab comes after Maimane asked him whether or not he supports the prescription of assets
President Ramaphosa said he did not want to be disrespectful towards a member of Parly but Mmusi Maimane sounded like a "broken record".
The Citizen reported the President threw shade at the DA leader after he asked him whether or not he supported the prescription of assets during a Q&A in Parliament on Thursday.
Maimane said the ANC that it was going to prescribe assets and that in simple terms, they will take the people's pensions.
“In the context where investment is down, growth is down and unemployment is at a record high time can you tell us, whether you do support the prescription of assets and the stealing, the nationalisation of pension funds for South Africans?” he asked.
Ramaphosa said that the ANC's stance on the issues have been discussed over and over again, yet Maimane continues to ask about it.
Briefly.co.za gathered Ramaphosa said the "whole of the investing world" is set to come to SA and Maimane should walk with him to hear what the investing world is saying about the country's policies.
The DA's Chief Whip, John Steenhuisen, was not impressed with the president's answer and said Ramaphosa sounded more like a loan shark than a head of state.
