- Panyaza Lesufi has shown support for the Springboks on Twitter
- The Gauteng MEC told the Boks to "moer" the England side
- The post had social media users divided
After Panyaza Lesufi was dragged for wrongfully spotting the apartheid flag at the Springboks vs Wales match last weekend, the Gauteng MEC has shown the Boks support ahead of the #RWC2019 final on Saturday.
Taking to his Twitter account, Lesufi posted a snap of the Springbok squad for tomorrow's final 2019 Rugby World Cup match.
The politician accompanied the photo with an eyebrow-raising message of support.
"Bring it back home #StrongerTogether #Springboks. Moer hulle! South Africa sa wena!"
Social media users were divided by the MEC's message to the Boks. Some dragged Lesufi while others joined the politician in wishing the Springboks luck.
Thousands of South Africans, including the Mamelodi Sundowns soccer team, have shown support for the Springboks.
President Cyril Ramaphosa will be at the stadium in Yokohama, Japan, to support the boys in green.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier the South African president has flown to Japan to be there for the final #RWC2019.
The President was filmed sporting a Springbok T-shirt and a Boks flag.
