Carl Niehaus caused a stir on social media after he said this about Ramaphosa.

After the Local government elections results were released Ramaphosa has been the centre of attention as people were blaming me for decline of votes. For the first time the ANC went below 50% in national elections. So due to the poor performance of the ANC in this year's local government elections people had called for Ramaphosa to step down and one of those people is Carl Niehaus.

When Ramaphosa won the elective conference of the ANC in 2017 at Nasrec, it opened a way within the organisation to be a faction called the RET forces which is against the leadership of President Cyril Ramaphosa. The same RET forces is led by Carl Niehaus, who's a friend of Jacob Zuma. 

Since Carl Niehaus is against Ramaphosa, last night he caused a huge stir on Twitter after he tweeted that Ramaphosa must step down. “Save our ANC, Ramaphosa must go” he tweeted. He also indicated that he's not just against the vote decline but he's also against forced vaccination. See 2 of tweets below:

However it seems like Niehaus caused a huge problem for himself because everyone who commented on his tweet was against him. People went to accuse him for destroying the ANC with Zuma and his RET forces. Others were trolling him for dating young girls, saying that he's childish no wonder he's beefing Ramaphosa. 

It seems like there were some couple of people who were standing with Niehues, calling for Ramaphosa to step down but the majority wasn't on his side. People went on to troll Niehaus telling him that he's full of nonsense, it was a huge stir since other people were defending Ramaphosa and others defending Niehaus and Zuma. 

See how people reacted to this tweet:

It seems like Niehaus is forgetting that The ANC started to decline votes, when his ally, Jacob Zuma' was still in charge of the ANC. It was because of Zuma who looted money with the Guptas, who caused the destruction of the ANC but still Niehaus is blaming Ramaphosa. 


I think that Niehaus just hates Ramaphosa for no reason, because day in and day out, he will be in Ramaphosa's case beefing him without any concrete proof. I think Niehaus hates Ramaphosa because he replaced Jacob Zuma from the Presidency. 

What's your view about this matter? Do you think Ramaphosa must step down like how Niehaus wants it? Don't forget to leave your thoughts in the comment section.
