Seshego shuns Cyril Ramaphosa

ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa received a cold welcome on the streets of Julius Malema’s Limpopo neighbourhood.

Ramaphosa was jeered and one man refused to shake his hand as he walked the streets of Seshego as part of the ANC’s “voter-mobilisation programme” yesterday.

The trouble started when Ramaphosa and a team of ANC supporters arrived in Seshego.

Malema, the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, had been in the neighbourhood just hours earlier to check that his name was on the voters’ roll in Seshego’s Zone 1.

At the first house they visited, Ramaphosa was turned away by the home owner before he had even got through the gate.

“Go away, go away. You are not welcome here. This is my home. People are dying because of the ANC.”
