Businessman Patrice Motsepe has sparked a debate on social media after telling US President Donald Trump that Africa loves him.
Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser share their thoughts on the issue.
I was so surprised when Motsepe was nodding to everything Trump was saying and even before Trump said anything Motsepe was nodding. Since [Cyril] Ramaphosa became president Motsepe has become bizarre.— Sindile, Caller
I think Motsepe is trying to sell himself and his businesses. This was a strategic move by Motsepe.— Nikile, Caller
You cannot be too rich to sell down your country and your continent.— Thembi, Caller

What Motsepe did was uncalled for; you can't go anywhere in the world and speak on half of an entire continent. Every country has its own President & international relations representatives that can speak for themselves— Sphithiphithi Evaluator (@_AfricanSoil) January 24, 2020
His utterances are dangerous and very irresponsible pic.twitter.com/wHTyPJirg6

Don’t know context but there’s no such thing as Africa loving Trump. Whether it was PR/impressing investors it has no factual basis. Even Americans hardly express love for Trump excerpt extreme rightwing elements.Trump sorry it was expressed in error we withdraw the statement https://t.co/HbyFut7dHE— somadodafikeni (@somadodafikeni) January 24, 2020

We don’t love Trump.
If you love Trump - say it with your chest. Don’t include us.
