- A woman recently shared the names and pictures of all African leaders currently in office
- She did it after the recent blunder by a US journalist who could not identify President Ramaphosa
- Social media users appreciated her work
A woman has taken to social media to educate people about the names of African leaders. This comes after the White House reporter for the Associated Press listed President Cyril Ramaphosa as an "unidentified leader" at the recent G7 Summit.
South Africans were left 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.
Many others were outraged by how she didn't know an international head of state to begin with, including Twitter user RefilweAfrica.
She took it upon herself to educate Superville and many others like her. She tweeted the name and image of every African state leader currently in office with the caption:
"To help our struggling journalists worldwide, here are ALL African Heads of State in Pictures."
The post went viral on social media and many appreciated the effort she put in educating others.
Briefly.co.za gathered that after the large amount of backlash from South Africans, Superville quietly tried to tag the SA head of state in an attempt to rectify her mistake but it was too little too late.
