If President Cyril Ramaphosa had his way, he would tie young white South Africans to trees.
This was his tongue-in-cheek comment as he urged young white South Africans to not leave the country. The president’s campaign trail stopped in the Beyerskloof wine estate outside Stellenbosch on Tuesday afternoon.
Several of the assembled farmers and businessmen were allowed to ask Ramaphosa questions through Beyers Truter, farm co-owner and winemaker, who acted as an MC.
Ramaphosa, who mentioned more than once that he was a farmer himself, was well received.
Truter said he believed the lord anointed kings and presidents, and he believed God anointed Ramaphosa. Truter needs his head examined.
Grape farmer Chris Steenkamp said: “Everyone here likes you, everyone here trusts you.” Mr Steenkamp should follow Truter’s medical treatment.
He said they’ve known Ramaphosa since the days of Codesa and Ramaphosa
