Is it our fault? R250 Billion Went Missing Under Zuma, now R500 Billion Under Ramaphosa.

source: Twitter

Twitter users are having a difficult time disputing the corruption in both the previous and current administrations.

They were assessing the R250 billion believed to have gone stolen during ex-president Jacob Zuma's government in the infamous state capture scandal. "I hope during the prayers today there will be a call for the return of the first family The Guptas and the R250 billion lost to state capture under Jacob Zuma's leadership," a white lady stated to those arranging Jacob Zuma prayers.

People loyal to Jacob Zuma, on the other hand, have taken up the gauntlet, claiming that the R500 billion PPE fund, which was allegedly plundered during President Cyril Ramaphosa's administration, must be accounted for. According to some, the true state capture is currently taking place. 

Another Twitter user explained why his town, as well as others, had rejected the ANC and barred it from campaigning. Of course, the fact that many areas rejected the ANC is no longer news. The incident is said to have started in Soweto and expanded to other parts of the country. The young man claimed that something caused the ANC's rejection, and that unless it is addressed, the same thing will happen again. "It's not just him who has been rejected by many communities, especially in the townships, but the ANC in its entirety," he said on Twitter. The looting of R500 billion, President Zuma's detention, and the ludicrous charges leveled against SG Magashule by the factional NPA are all part of the antagonism." People are accusing President Cyril Ramaphosa of being too quiet when it comes to prosecuting corrupt politicians, especially when the cases are clear. People who were implicated in the infamous PPE saga are still free to move about, while only factional RET ANC members are facing various criminal trials. People believe that justice is being selectively applied under the current administration. 

A South African kid has stated that he will no longer believe anything spoken by the government or the ANC. He also alluded to all of the false promises made throughout campaigns and how the same politicians keep repeating them in order to win voters' hearts. “Do you really believe the government cares about us?” he bemoaned once more. 

So much money has been donated, but not a single hospital has been built, and yet we are stated to be in a crisis, with no facilities to care for the sick, while R500 billion that was supposed to alleviate poverty in these difficult times has vanished.”
