- Mzansi was left furious after snaps of ANC officials unveiling a tape in the Eastern Cape surfaced online

- Even Mmusi Maimane couldn't help but feel that the situation was more than a little cringe
Service delivery has for the longest time been an issue in South Africa, with reports of corruption and mismanagement plaguing the nation.
Now, images of ANC officials proudly gathering around a lone tap in the Eastern Cape province has set off numerous citizens.
The photos were posted by an individual named Zwanga Mukhutu, whose post quickly went viral and it was hardly to thank the ruling party for its hard work.
Even OneSA Movement leader Mmusi Maimane was left feeling unimpressed with the matter, commenting:
"This is very embarrazzzing. Are they not embarazzzed?"
Take a look at just a few reactions below:
@daniel_peters11- "ANC leaders are rascals - how could they gather around a tap of water as if they're changing the world? The citizens deserve that tap because it's their right to have it, since they pay tax!"
@MphahleleSilas- "I hope your lying. And, that those people are just washing their hands, after a ceremony unrelated to that tap."
@XolaniNgcobo167- "This pic kills me, they are having big smiles as if they've unveiled something really worth Billions that they've looted."
@shroompopsicle- "Exactly. With all the Billions they looted they could have built proper housing with plumbing! Instead the tax money is with the Guptas."
@Inenekazi_- "Sad part is that it doesn't mean water is going to come out of that tap..."
@Pali_Sebati- "This fools even locked the tap but i can just conect a pipe here and get water for free when ever i want even to my house."
@JamesLU11698782- "Imagine the suite cost more then the whole tape project."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the government in the province had come under fire after unveiling a project to convert scooters into ambulances.
This had come into the spotlight after Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize had viewed the bikes during a visit to the province.
The project would later be labelled a failure and a probe into the matter is currently underway.
