Today, Athol Trollip, the provincial leader of the South African political party Action SA, took to his official Twitter account to post a picture of himself and an Action SA supporter. The picture shows Athol Trollip giving the supporter a pair of shoes.
"Three weeks ago, this man's shoes broke while he was out canvassing in East London. I promised him a new pair of shoes. #ActionSA does what it says it will do." In a tweet, Athol Trollip wrote:
A lot of people in South Africa were not happy with Athol Trollip's post. Some thought Trollip was using the supporter for publicity, and others were unhappy with the quality of the shoes. This picture shows how some people reacted after seeing it.
"Athol! Bro, just delete this thing. If you didn't post it, we'll just pretend that you didn't do that."
"It took three weeks for them to get a pair of shoes that were worn out, and they are happy. You and I don't have to say anything to each other"
People don't show off with good deeds, but if it's for politics, Athol can't show off with shoes.
