President Cyril Ramaphosa used Twitter to announce that South Africa should be proud of the 1st Women's Economic Assembly. He claims that this will help the country achieve its constitutional goal of equality and will hasten the country's economic transition.
“The 1st Women's Economic Assembly is a landmark to be commemorated by all of us,” he remarked. It gets us closer to realizing our constitutional objective of equality, and it will be a critical tool for accelerating our economy's change for the benefit of all.”
This organization was founded to make it easier for women-owned enterprises to participate in South Africa's major economic sectors.
A Twitter user who commented to his message this morning noted that the president has been aware of the problem for nearly three decades and has done nothing to address it.
“You've been at this for nearly three decades, and what have you accomplished?” he asked in his tweet. niks, fokol, aiziko... just a bunch of "I'm sorry," "I didn't know" rich people getting richer by swindling your supporters' hard-earned money... wow!... Pathetic!! ”
