Simphiwe Dana has shared her thoughts on President Cyril Ramaphosa's term in office. The singer is definitely not a fan of Ramaphosa's presidency.
The songstress took to Twitter on Sunday night, 25 April and told her followers that Ramphosa is the worst president Mzansi has ever had.
"I know we’re scared to say it. But Ramaphosa is the worst president we have had," said Simphiwe.
The star's post sparked a heated debate on her timeline. Some peeps agreed with her while others totally disagreed and alleged that someone paid her to post the negative tweet about Ramaphosa. Check out some of the reactions from tweeps below:
"Well, he's not worse than Zuma but he's certainly up there with him on the scale of incompetence."
"Paid for tweet from Duduzane Zuma and by extension from the looted money of hard working South Africans."
"So what was Jacob Zuma? You're better than this Simphiwe."
"What was the price of petrol during the Zuma years vs the prices of petrol now? I'm not fighting, let's talk facts now."
"That's a very flawed way to look at it don't you think... Judging a whole presidency on the fact that you, a freaking recording artist with sponsorships and recording deals, is upset that concerts are closed in the middle of a pandemic!!, while thousands are dying of hunger..."
"Never take a billionaire and make them a president... Trump and Ramaphosa - same heartless WhatsApp group."
In other entertainment news, Briefly News previously reported that Simphiwe Dana took to social media to claim that President Cyril Ramaphosa is treating South Africans like children after he introduced new lockdown regulations with immediate effect in December 2020.
The songstress has shared that Cyril Ramaphosa should have given Mzansi at least a week to prepare to go back to the stricter Level 3 Covid-19 lockdown. The singer took to Twitter on Tuesday, 29 December and wrote:
"Xa sitheth’ inyani our president is treating us like children. He could have given us a week to prepare ourselves for Level 3."
A tweep @Shoes0613 took to the star's comment section to disagree with her. @Shoes0613 asked Simphiwe:
"If I may ask,what do we need to be ready for Level 3?"
The artist shared that she wanted to do grocery shopping first before she could be ready for Level 3 lockdown. She replied to the tweep:
"Mainly grocery shopping. Also to travel to our homes were we visiting others, especially in different provinces."
