The Minister of Transport has split Mzansi with his recent social media post. He was responding to a statement which claimed that 64% of South Africans are happy with President Cyril Ramaphosa. Mbalula agreed with the commentary, but it seems some citizens didn't quite concur.
Mbalula responded to the Khusela Diko's tweet by saying, "We are on track." A few social media users agreed with him, but a fair number were not amused. Twitter user HermanHG said:
"On track to destroying an entire country in 26 years!"
"They are showing us middle finger."
"This is a joke."
"This joker says this whilst South Africa has had 10 days of Stage 2 load-shedding non-stop. You are literally woke for pay. You are willing to sing anyone's praises as long as you remain employed. You are a joke and people see your desperation."
"We believe in CR, otherwise tell us who can do better than CR"
"Then why aren't those people voting for him so he can get above 60% of the votes?"
"The president is doing a great job. There is no perfection and I am happy that he is holding the fort. ANC leads the masses and it is not easy due to the dynamics of our country."
"The proportion of South Africans that have access to clean running water is lower now than in 1994..."
"If this is how you guys on track is then I wonder what will happen when you're not on track."
