Briefly News scoured Twitter to compile a few of the other posts using #RamaphosaMustGo:
"This #RamaphosaMustGo campaign misses the point; it's the same elderly group of seniors who've been neutralised by greed, corruption and ineptitude over time. How will rotating faces from the same sunken place lift SA any higher? Explain this to me as you would to a 4-year-old."
"To think that the ANC in 2006 won the LGEs by 80% and now we are fighting for 46% it's scary. Ramaphosa must go otherwise in 2024 we will find ourselves fighting for 30%. #ramaphosamustgo"
"Shoutout to President Zuma for hosting a successful world cup in 2010, initiating Gautrain, building power stations, free education, our current president is a pandemic manager. #ramaphosamustgo."

"I remember when we were told Ramaphosa will do well and business owners like him. Our economy is going to do good and lot of employment. Hehehe hai no. We have to be honest. He is the worst president ever. #RamaphosaMustGo."
"We need a leader, not a businessman. Ramaphosa is a businessman, I repeat, he is a businessman. #RamaphosaMustGo."
"This hashtag #RamaphosaMustGo will remain pointless until REAL action is taken from the ground!"
