Not only does it put you in touch with ordinary S Africans but sends a clear message that days of wasteful and unecessary govt expenditure are over.— Adv. Martin Williams (@Adv_MJWIlliams) March 20, 2018 Good example to the rest of African presidents who shy away from their own national carriers.— Charles Mwabili (@CMwabili) March 20, 2018 I thought that access to the cockpit is no longer allowed??.

I'm glad you realized that flying the national carrier is far better than being in a private jet owned by questionable characters. Let's not just accept nice things just because someone else can be scapegoated if things blow up in our faces.— Izwe Lethu (@UnmovedLee) March 20, 2018Much better than flying in the Moti jet Sir. ??— Tess Turvey (@TessTurvey) March 20, 2018 Others wished the president a safe flight.Was the pilot or copilot busy or ignoring to take a pic with u ?????????? , if he was ignoring u we wish u a safe flight— V Paps Khumalo (@vongani2) March 20, 2018 The theme of this year's AU Summit is "Winning the Fight against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa's Transformation".
