DUR­ING a sur­prise visit to Alexan­dra, Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa in­spected the SA So­cial Se­cu­rity Agency (Sassa) of­fices and AlexFM.

He said he was sat­is­fied with the level of ser­vice. So­cial me­dia users asked why the peo­ple did not tell him of their frus­tra­tions, while oth­ers ac­cused the pres­i­dent of po­lit­i­cally charm­ing the mostly fe­male clients at the Sassa of­fice.

@Ron­aldo94441375: Why is he vis­it­ing @sassa, are they friends? #Sassa.

@Governo41341687: Re­ally? We are tired of these pop­ulist stunts! I mean a sin­gle visit can’t change the state of things in the town­ships. We need cred­i­ble poli­cies that com­bat in­ef­fi­cient ser­vice.

Ramaphosa also picked up ba­bies to which @irish_za re­torted: Hold a cou­ple of ba­bies and things are fine? Maybe go to Joburg Gen then you’ll see what @MYANC is do­ing. #VoteThemOut.
