Malawian: EFF MP who insulted Ramaphosa scotched for being born by a Malawian father

Naledi Chirwa, a member of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) trended on Twitter after she called President Cyril Ramaphosa a ‘weak little boy’. President tweeted a message yesterday condemning corruption and defending the constitution.



However, the insult didn't fly well with many South Africans calling for Naledi to apologize for disrespecting the office of the presidency. Many also called her a hypocrite as she has in the past shown respect to controversial Malawian pastor, Shepherd Bushiri who has been accused of [email protected] and fraud.

Here are some responses to her insults:

@Ruraltarain: What Naledi Chirwa is doing is Unacceptable & Wrong, a foreigner insulting our State President has nothing to do with ANC Factions / how many times she has done it to uMsholozi, she will never Insult Lazarus Chakwera / Zim father president Ed Mnangagwa.

@TheRealPro: Xenophobia is for those lacking in intelligence. Naledi was a star ( guys I'm good *in Pep's voice) when she was disrespecting Pres Zuma, the EFF was revolutionary when it was insulting Pres Zuma but now that Bafanas has been fingered, Naledi becomes an ungrateful Malawian.

@Thaanewalesele: People who are calling @NalediChirwa a Malawian must firstly tell us about half of the people living in Limpopo, Ficksburg, Qwa Qwa, Sterkspruit, Mafikeng, Springboro, and Mpumalanga were do they come from.

@ProSouthAfrican: I'm not a fan of Ramaphosa. However, he is still my president and I will not standby while he attacked by an outsider. Foreigners are getting too comfortable in SA and drastic action is needed. This Malawian needs to go ASAP, Naledi voetsek is back in Malawi.

@azania: Imagine a South African saying this to a Nigerian President in Nigeria. A Malawian calls our president a “weak little boy” and we are okay with it? Naledi’s father is a Malawian and her mother is a Mozambican, she’s, therefore, a foreigner.
