- Ramaphosa addressed the media after the visit and it drew a strong public reaction
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the EFF’s visit to the family of the late Jabu Baloyi.
President Cyril Ramaphosa and Secretary General Ace Magashule have now followed suit as they also paid a visit to the family of the slain taxi driver.
Baloyi tragically lost his life recently as he allegedly took a stand against the sale of drugs in the Pretoria CBD.
At the briefing, Ramaphosa agreed that Baloyi’s death highlighted the scourge of drugs in the country.
The president pledged that his death would not be in vain as the government plans to take a strong stand by adopting an anti-drug masterplan.
The ANC shared the briefing video via Facebook on Friday and it invoked many strong responses from the public.
Some lauded Ramaphosa for his stance and action plan, while others deemed it to be mere lip service.
Thembi Elsie Mahlangu commented, “We are tired of these so called leaders for being paid with our taxes for doing absolutely nothing it's high time citizens take charge of their country and choose their leaders in their communities and civil society, it's high time we vote for independent candidate for President not this political parties cause their there to fill their stomachs not there to service the South African that's why it's easy for them to choose foreigners in our own country.”
Sello Magano added, “We are not surprised that's the ANC we know they are good at changing stories to suit them, they love these drug dealers because they know is funding their organization.”
Buhle Yengwa commented, “Visit then do nothing...........next.”
Livhuwani Ramuhovhi said, “Well said comrade he will be remembered drugs smugglers and those who are using our young girls as prostitutes are not welcome anymore in South Africa Thanks Honourable President.”
Rendani Ndou Ndou added, “I salute you my beloved president.”
