Cyril Ramaphosa is just like us, only human

08 September 2017, 12:46

A lot has been said, he has been called all sort of names but he is still standing strong. Mr Cyril Ramaphosa who the media claims had an affair with eight different women, of which among them there are also women who are still in University. Surely this has been a hectic week for him as he had to deal with a lot of criticism from the public.

As a matter of fact I really don’t understand what the fuss is about. Ramaphosa is human just like you and me, so why is it a problem if it’s him who has marital affairs? He admitted that he had an affair once with a lady who was his medical doctor and it ended eight years ago.

The way I look at this issue, I think this is basically a strategy to try convince the citizens of South Africa to not vote for Ramaphosa in the 2018 elections as he might be the next president after Mr Jacob Zuma. This is just a way of bringing him by ruining his image. I thought South Africa is a free country, where each individual has freedom to do whatever they like anytime. For a person like Ramaphosa who is Vice President of this country it wasn’t really necessary for the media to expose his personal life in such a manner. Ramaphosa is now expected to address the members of parliament in a day or two, regarding his personal issues.

Should he really address his colleagues regarding his personal matters and why does his personal life have to interfere with his work? What happens at home should stay there, it mustn’t interfere with his work. To think that all that has been said about Ramaphosa were only rumours that made up a “fake story”, using it to get into the minds of people so that they’ll see him, as a bad person who can’t manage his personal issues and who is not worth voting for.

This has shown who is and who’s not against Ramaphosa. Not that I am encouraging people to have affairs and cheat on their partners but maybe it’s time we as the public learn to focus on ourselves and not other people’s business. We all have choices to make, if you want to have an affair go ahead it’s your choice. Let us not criticize other people and the choices they make.
