Cape Town – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) member of parliament (MP) Naledi Chirwa got tongues wagging on Monday when she branded President Ramaphosa as “a weak little boy”.
This came following Ramaphosa’s weekly letter, in which he urged South Africans to “protect our Constitution, our democratic state and the electoral process from anyone who wants to weaken our democracy and deny the South African people of their hard-won freedom.”
Responding to the letter was Chirwa who uttered vicious words towards the president, saying that he was “a toothless boy”.
“You’re such a weak little boy. All your fellow stooges u sent to collapse Lindiwe were collapsed themselves. It won’t be surprising if u do what little boys do when overpowered by women. Throw the tantrum we are expecting it. You’ll forever remain a toothless boy. Mfana ke mfana,” Chirwa wrote in a Twitter post.

Chirwa’s post divided Twitter, with some claiming she was exercising her freedom of speech, while others found her statement repugnant.
Take a look at some of the Twitter reactions below:
When you read Naledi Chirwa’s insults to President Cyril Ramaphosa, please bear in mind that Naledi is 28 years old and the President is 69 years old.
Forget that he is the President but that is no way to talk to an adult. Naledi a ka se bolele le papage that way.
