The Provisional Minister (MEC) for the education department in Cape Town took to social media to throw some shade at President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Debbie Schafer complained that Ramaphosa’s brigade, consisting of nine cars, pushed her vehicle of the road.
Some users were quick to ask if she was certain it was the head of state. One tweep even sarcastically said it was impressive how she could tell it was Ramaphosa through tinted windows while the cars were passing at high speeds.
Schafer was quick to defend herself, saying she has protectors in her “one car”, who could tell it was the president.
But, Twitter users continued to make fun of the MEC’s annoyance about Ramaphosa’s convoy.
“Easy Debbie. He’s the President of the country. You expect one car?”, one person commented.
Another joked and said Schafer probably thought Ramaphosa would drive passed her with a white Renault Clio and wave at her.
It was not long before the race card stepped in, with many suggesting Schafer’s complains were not about the many cars, but because of a racial issue.
