On Monday, reported that South Africans were fuming after a US reporter, Darlene Superville, called President Cyril Ramaphosa an "unidentified leader."

The reporter posted a photo of several world leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Canada's Head of State Justin Trudeau and Ramaphosa.

Superville could not identify Ramaphosa so she called him "one unidentified leader".

However, she has now quietly tried to tag the SA head of state in an attempt to rectify her mistake following intense scrutiny from Mzansi tweeps.

However, South Africans were still not happy with Superville and they demanded an apology to Ramaphosa.

A Twitter user, @iothaiii, commented: "You have to do better. As a #Blackman, I make it my business to know as many African leaders and their positions as possible. I would suggest you do the same."
Felix Ngasama, who goes by the Twitter handle @NgasamaFelix, added: "You've quietly made correction without an apology to South Africans for disrespecting their president in your earlier twaddle. But then again, apology is a foreign language to a person inflated with ignorance & its conjoined twin arrogance."
