President Cyril Ramaphosa has really been a pillar of strength in South Africa during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Not only has the head of state encouraged South Africans during these difficult times but he has managed to make us laugh as well.
During his last national address on the coronavirus, Ramaphosa struggled to put his mask on and it went viral.
Soon, the #CyrilMaskChallenge started but Ramaphosa managed to respond to the blooper with a great sense of humour.
However, on Monday, the head of state trolled South Africans with a hilarious gesture at the ending of his Freedom Day speech.
After encouraging Mzansi, the president used his SA flag scarf to cover his face and before letting it drop and showing his amusement.
Social media user, @RavenfromTTGo, shared a clip of Ramaphosa's joke online and captioned it:
"We think we’re trolling Cyril? Naaah man's trolling us."
