“Keep Quiet, You’re Drunk” President Ramaphosa Tells Unruly Gan-Rankuwa Resident in Viral Video

President Cyril Ramaphosa addresses a crowd in Tshwane on Friday, where he at one point took aim at unruly residents.

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

At around noon, shortly after a door-to- door crusade at an informal agreement, Ramaphosa made his way to a small sports ground hard. When he arrived, some locals cheered for him while others expressed their rage at the manner in which the seeker councillors’ process had been handled. 

At themini-rally, Ramaphosa saluted the crowd and began his crusade speech. Still, not long after he started speaking, he was intruded by screaming residers who hurled cuts at the original councillor. 

With a smile on his face, Ramaphosa said brutally “Keep quiet, You're drunk.” 

He also jokingly added “When it's this hot and you drink alcohol, it's stirring inside you and drives you crazy.” 

We all know the feeling when you’re talking and someone starts acting crazy just to obstruct you and confuse you. The anger you unleash at that moment is quite uncontrollable and you could say something horrible which would affect the person or the crowd around you.

When President Ramaphosa said all that, the crowd was brought under control and Ramaphosa continued with his crusade communication. 

The question is what he said, is it right for a President to say so during campaign?
