A South African social media user, Tsietsi has said that those who are complaining about the government and yet keep voting for the ANC must keep quiet because they are responsible for what is happening in the country. He was reacting to news published by the Daily Maverick where it was reported that paediatricians in the country were using phone torchlight to operate on children while the country intends to donate to Cuba. Many people consider it a misplaced priority because there are many burning issues in the country now that require finance. Tsietsi wrote on Twitter in visible anger and frustration, “The majority of Black people deserves what's happening to them. It's painful, but it's the brutal truth. They can't keep on voting for the ANC and then cry foul”. Some people believe that the government hate the people they are leading, else, they would not think of such.
Madi Boity who posted the story said that the country is already becoming a failed state because of the level things have degenerated to. Boity observed that the hospitals in the country are in deployable condition, yet the government intends to donate to Cuba. He wrote, “South Africa is officially a failed state. If you are still in denial, then just read this heartbreaking account of a paediatrician, and how unnecessary deaths happen in our hospitals”. Numerous people also used the medium to voice out their frustration against the government, saying that they never believed that a time will come when things will get worse to this extent. One lady observed hospitals ought to be exempted from Load shedding. She added, “I fail to understand why hospitals are not on the list of exempted places/businesses from load shedding? Why would you exempt mines as an example but not exempt hospitals where people’s lives sometimes depend on machines?”.
