The African National Congress (ANC) has been judged and criticised for years by many South Africans and @Ma_LoJ is the latest to share her thoughts on the party. @Ma_LoJ tweeted recently that the ruling party "needs a five-year break."
Her tweet quickly gained traction on the social networking site with many South Africans in full agreement with her statement. Her tweet was posted over the weekend and is almost on 2 000 likes.
While the majority of Saffa tweeps shared reasons why they agreed with her statement, there was a few who shared reasons why a lot of people would disagree. She unintentionally sparked a fierce debate with topics such as corruption and social grants being brought up.
Take a look at her original tweet below:
These are just a few of the responses to her tweet:
"You'll want it back in 5 months... Ask DA, governing is not pap and vleis... ANC just makes it look easy."
"Like... From this toxic and abusive relationship?"
"5 yrs only? After such monstrous destruction. They'd be back with a vengeance literally grounding everything."
In similar news, Briefly.co.za reported earlier on a man who shared his tax woes and frustration with the ANC. Sipho Mbanjwa shared that at one time he was working three jobs but all his extra cash went to SARS.
Sipho went on to say that the harder he worked the more money was taxed. He said people are taxed "only for the ANC to loot all that money." His tweet struck a nerve with many South African tweeps.
A lot of tweeps shared their stories about being taxed more the harder they work and blamed the ANC for alleged corruption. Sipho's tweet gained over 1 500 likes on the social networking site, which clearly shows how many Saffas are in agreement with him.
