Cyril Ramaphosa has failed to keep the promise he made to South Africans regarding COVID-19 relief. OPINION

Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa is a South African businessman and politician who, since 2018, has served as the fifth democratically elected president of South Africa, as well as president of the African National Congress since 2017.


South African citizens are very much angry at their president, Cyril Ramaphosa, for promising them that he would make sure that the COVID-19 relief funds wouldn't be stolen. Cyril Ramaphosa delivered a speech in which he assured South Africans that these funds would not be looted. Previously, the South African government squandered R500 billion, which was meant to be used for the stimulus package and COVID-19 relief funds, but later was looted.


The theft of the COVID-19 relief funds made South African citizens lose trust in their president, Cyril Ramaphosa. Below are some of the comments that were made by South African citizens regarding the matter.


Remember how, during the first family, Cyril Ramaphosa promised the nation that the COVID relief funds would not be looted and that anyone accused of misappropriating or mismanaging the funds would be fired, yet Parliament just cleared Zweli Mkhize of benefiting from the Digital Vibes contract?


Seeing Cyril Ramaphosa laughing about the R22 million flag is pissing me off. The man that is always shocked by the reality of the living conditions of the majority of his citizens is making jokes about a flag that will cost the country twenty-two million Rands. I hate it here.


As long as the African National Congress is still in charge, South Africa will remain stuck in one place. The African National Congress is full of vultures who are hungry and will never think of anyone except themselves. I think it will be a good thing to do if we, as South African citizens, vote them out in the upcoming elections before they bring this country down with them.


Do you think Cyril Ramaphosa failed to keep his promises or that his cabinet members were the ones who betrayed him? Please leave your views in the comment section below.
