"Lock the door and don't open for anyone" Ramaphosa panics and warns his terrified sister

President Cyril Ramaphosa's family is in danger and the President is on a panic mode. Over the weekend, angry Sowetans went to his house and demanded that his sister, Ivy Ramaphosa, must phone Ramaphosa so they could tell him over the phone that they are going to burn his house down. When the terrified sister made the call, Ramaphosa panicked and told her to "Lock the door and don't open for anyone!"

Ramaphosa's sister, who lives in Chiawelo, had to watch through the window as residents protested outside her house over a recent electricity blackout. She says she fears for her life as the mob told her they will be back and if Ramaphosa doesn't bring back electricity to their area, all hell will break loose.

Speculation is rife that the angry mob is actually a rented group that is being paid by opposition political parties to further discredit the president and the governing party for the upcoming local government elections. Soweto residents have been experiencing ongoing electricity blackouts because of the problem they brought upon themselves. They owe Eskom and they know that. Why are they all of a sudden targeting Ramaphosa's family? It could be true that they are being paid to cause distraction.

These angry protestors say locking the door is not going to sort this mess Ramaphosa created.They further said that all ANC members should step aside. New government needed, they say. Do they believe their electricity issues will be solved by a new leadership? They must just own up to their irresponsible behavior and pay up!

Last week the angry residents disrespected Ramaphosa and tried to block him from entering the township. The community members are behaving like hooligans just because they know that Ramaphosa and the African National Congress are desperate for votes. They can do anything to calm their tantrums. But threatening Ramaphosa's innocent sister is way too much!
