South Africa is a nation that presents a unique set of challenges to our political leaders.

The recent global crisis resulting from the spread of Covid-19 has only added to the already complex challenge.
One woman empathised with Ramaphosa and penned a moving letter via social media on Sunday.

In light of these factors, she called on South Africans to put jokes aside and to rally behind the nation's leader.
She rounded off her message by saying:
"Instead of making fun of the man who is the deciding factor for our country, take a moment and TRY to understand what this man is currently going through. He has been making excellent decisions and for that I salute him. Pray for our President. Pray for our country."

"Damn right must be so hard. But we are south Africans we are tough crowd we can do this."
