The president said he’d have had second thoughts about the job if his predecessor had told him how tough it is.
In a tweet on Friday night, President Cyril Ramaphosa appeared to joke about his reflections on his first 100 days in office.
He said his predecessor, Jacob Zuma, had never warned him the job would bring with it so much work.
Ramaphosa wrote: “If there is one thing that Former President Zuma never told me about the job of President is that kusetyenzwa way-waya! Had I known, Nxamalala, perhaps I would have changed my mind.”
The jokey, respectful nature of the tweet towards Zuma (Nxamalala is a title/name for Zuma signifying respect), with whom Ramaphosa was sharing space with last night at an event honouring struggle stalwart Sophie de Bruyn for her 80th birthday, caused EFF leader Julius Malema to shake his head in disbelief.
Others shared Malema’s misgivings, though there were those who advised him to lighten up.
