The South African president has been exposed as hypocritical following reports that President Cyril Ramaphosa got a letter of credence from the State of Israel's Ambassador. This would have been an usual celebration except that Miss SA Lalela Mswane received blowback from the president earlier in the year 2021.
When Lalela was crowned Miss SA 2021 and it was subsequently reported that she would be competing in the well-known international pageant, Miss Universe, which was held in Israel, she was urged not to compete. Lalela has been cautioned that she would not receive SA backing just because Israel has an apartheid regime.
News said that if she participates, it will show that she supports what the government of Israel is doing and SA is against apartheid. Lalela, despite all odds, took part and came out as the second runner up of the competition.
SA now demands that the presidency apologize to Lalela because all along they have been in business with Israel.
