@maminxym shared:

"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."

@Dazeenho wrote:

"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"

@rhoozradiante tweeted:

"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."
