TODAY| Ramaphosa met residents with anger, here is why

In Ga-Rankuwa, ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa was met with anger. Residents demanded that their grievances be met. The crowd kept disrupting the president while he was speaking.


An ANC campaign rally in Ga-Rankuwa, Tshwane, temporarily descended into chaos on Friday when angry residents demanded their grievances be addressed.


"You. Put your placards down. I have seen them, "said party president Cyril Ramaphosa, pointing his finger at the group of placard-carrying residents.


Ramaphosa greeted the crowd and began his campaign speech. However, not long after he started speaking, he was interrupted by screaming residents who hurled insults at the local councillor.


Ramaphosa said sternly: "Keep quiet. You are drunk." "When it is this hot and you drink alcohol, it ferments inside you and drives you crazy."


"A party that has been in power for 27 years is not even supposed to be campaigning, and making the same old promises it has been making in the past 27 years. Had it been a shining example of good governance and the delivery of services to the people, in times like these, the leaders would just be going around the country launching new community projects or expanding on the work already started by their municipalities. That alone would have sufficed for opposition parties to campaign and gloat.But the main focus has been on corruption, self-serving, and looting, "said a Facebook follower.
