The video footage shows an incident where Cyril Ramaphosa was giving a speech in some community in Soweto Gauteng province, and the community did not receive him very well - they proceeded to tell him that they do not care about the Covid-19 vaccine that the president of South Africa has promised them.
The people are not very friendly and this is only because of one thing, the fact that they do not have the electricity and this might be because Eskom might have cut off some of the communities, because of the huge debt that their communities owe Eskom.
A lot of people have not been receiving Cyril Ramaphosa very well in Soweto, especially because of this topic and Soweto is such a huge municipality and the ANC has to do something about it so that the people stop complaining that they do not have the electricity.
The president of this country has been on a political campaign to get votes for the African National Congress but has also taken the opportunity to promote vaccination from covid-19, so while he has taken these opportunities to do his activities and to pursue his own goals other people have also noted that this is a very good time to raise their concerns.
Instead of telling the woman calmly to await her turn in order for him to address some of other people's concerns, Cyril completely put her down and told her to keep quiet while he was talking. The woman was asking about what the president is going to do about the issues that they are having such as the electricity concerns, where they are paying a lot of money for electricity that is very small.
Cyril Ramaphosa has received a lot of criticism from the general public, firstly because the woman is right the electricity tariffs are really expensive and most people cannot even afford them.
It is very disheartening to see when you pay R1000 and receive about 450 kW that makes you feel like you're receiving less than even half of what you're paying for, and this is concerning because in other areas it is even worse - people allegedly received about 100 kilowatts for R1000.
