#TheLordOfTheMedia, @samkelemaseko, has shared some screenshots on Twitter allegedly made by an ANC politician making fun of how small RDP houses are.
In a series of messages, the alleged ANC politician Reegan Booysens pokes fun at the low-cost housing comparing it to the size of his bar.
The post gathered quite a bit of attention from Twitter users who took to the comments section to react.
"All starts in youth league .... Then graduate to VBS."
"Reegan Booysens is Ace Magashule’s, right-hand man."
"This is what most politicians say to us daily moes, remember dirty Votes from Nomvula, politicians are there for themselves, Voters must just wake up and stop defending these people, they all the same."
"Making fun of RDP housing, disgusting. Don't they know most of their voters, the people they claim to represent, the poorest of the poor, live in RDPs. Omg. How ignorant and cruel are these people?"
"One thing I noted here is this is "comrades" having a quarrel amongst themselves, but I ask myself if they are like this to one another what do they think of the man on the street. The lack of Ubuntu in his utterance."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that when the African National Congress (ANC) won the first democratic elections in 1994, topmost of its promises was the provision of proper houses for the scores of destitute South Africans.
This was viewed as a turning point in many peoples’ lives, who saw the ANC as the answer to their prayers for a better life.
The ANC took over the government and the globally-revered Nelson Mandela was catapulted to the Union Building, making history as the first black president to lead South Africa.
Mandela, together with his Cabinet, introduced a department that was called the Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP). This department was going to address the litany of socio-economic issues that plagued the poor, mostly blacks.
