Twitter Reacts To This Picture Of Cyril

The African National Congress has dispatched its heavyweights to KwaZulu-Natal, where President Cyril Ramaphosa will lead a campaign from Saturday to Sunday ahead of the November elections.

The senior leaders' work comes months after the upheaval in the province in July, which erupted after former President Jacob Zuma was imprisoned for urging supporters to vote for the ANC in a video.

While Ramaphosa previously visited the province on a government mission to inspect the damage, he will kick off his campaign in Durban on Saturday with a walk-about and community meetings in Ward 95, which includes Folweni, KwaMakhutha, and uMbumbulu.

Ramaphosa will campaign in Umlazi, KwaNdengezi, and KwaMkhizwana on Sunday. This will happen while national chairperson Gwede Mantashe is in the Moses Mabhida region of uMshwati and iMpendle.

The visit of Ramaphosa and Mantsashe is preceded by that of Deputy President David Mabuza, who is in the kingdom on Friday to promote the government's vaccination social mobilization campaign at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The visit also comes as the DA is facing criticism over its posters: “The ANC called you racists” and “The DA calls you heroes” in Phoenix earlier this week. Other leaders of the ANC to campaign in KZN are Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma and Bheki Cele, who will be on the lower south coast.

Ramaphosa's visit to KwaNdengezi got many Twitter users on the wrong side. This is after the president posed for pictures with 'white' fellows. Here are some of the reactions;

Musa: And the white people had to be at the front, at KwaNdengezi, huh?

Happy: For as long as you still see colour in South African landscape, just know that you are the problem.

Elijah: We never seen him taking time n posing with other people who happen to be black on his campaign trail.

Mtshatshu: Did he take time ⏲️ to pose with people who attended the rally or with people who happened to be white at the rally???

Mpho: It is with shame most people were transported to such places to make good image and story, but that's news for another day but ANC has lost touch in many places and now bringing crowds to look good is the order of the day.
