People in SOWETO are fed up with President Ramaphosa, look what they are doing now

Look at what the people of SOWETO are doing today—they have had enough of President Ramaphosa.

South West Township, or SOWETO as it is more widely known, is where current South African President and African National Congress leader Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa spent his childhood.

In his presidential campaign, he pledged, among other things, to abolish load shedding. And he said he would fix a lot of other broken parts of society, too.

People in Soweto have taken to the streets to vent their anger with President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa.

There was a devastating loss of life yesterday, it has been stated, when someone's home was destroyed. Due to the lack of electricity, they had to make do with a candle. People say they can't afford to live there any longer, especially in this area. Little electricity is available, and nearly all purchases are prohibitively expensive.

People of SOWETO are heard on the film claiming that they voted for Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa to become president, but that he is now taking advantage of them.
