The Economic Freedom Fighter 's member of parliament Naledi Chirwa, caused a stir on social media when he called the president of the country Cyril Ramaphosa "a young boy". This did not go well with South Africans, who reprimanded Chirwa that she cannot insult the country 's president like that.
The tweets went as far as digging the nationality of Chirwa. After some digging, the pictures of Chirwa posting about his parents emerged. A tweet posted by Chirwa in March 2013 read thus " Dad from Malawi, mom from Zim, and l'm South Africa....But this was supposed to be picture perfect "
Despite her followers reminding her of the tweets, Chirwa tried by allmeans to brush the off. But since she was attacked for her nationality, the poor Chirwa has been quite for now on social media. Maybe she is still digesting the aftermath of calling president "a young boy" and the news of her nationality.
The big question one can ask is, did our previous leader liberate us from apartheid so we can call the very same leaders "small boys". Is this the democracy we where fighting for?
