The ruling party’s ongoing efforts to persuade President Jacob Zuma to step down has spawned a rather unflattering nickname for the country’s deputy president – Ramapostponer.
While the NEC was locked behind closed doors during its marathon 13-hour meeting‚ Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema was tweeting updates.
Ramapostponer‚ he tweeted‚ had been mandated to convey a message to the “delinquent” to resign or be recalled. And with that he wished his followers goodnight.
The outcome of the NEC meeting left the nation hanging on tenterhooks. Was Zuma going to step down or fight back? All of the speculation elicited hundreds‚ thousands‚ maybe tens of thousands of reactions and memes on social media.
And here are nine that caught our eye.
Advocate Dali Mpofu appeared to agree that there were too many delays and too little progress in the Zexit negotiations.
Malema retweeted a video by Tumi Sole that mocked efforts by Ramaphosa and ANC NEC members who were trying to present a “united front”.
While negotiations about the so-called “transition” dragged on‚ one thing became apparent. Just as Robert Mugabe was not persuaded to go quickly in Zimbabwe‚ neither would Zuma’s exit be a fast and furious one. Mosima Matosa hit the nail on the head with this tweet.
