In a heated debate on the Eusebius McKaiser Show, callers debate how those who fought in the liberation of South Africa became rich after 1994.
Zooming in of President Cyril Ramaphosa, Skhumbuzo says he doesn't understand how the head of state became a billionaire.
He adds that it makes him sad that these rich people use their money to be in positions of power while many South Africans live in poverty.
Yesterday I listened with sadness as Advocate Ngcukaitobi was reciting the money that the current President Cyril Ramaphsoa put into his campaign. It started with R200,000 and ended somewhere around R32 million. What is sad is that in the face of so much poverty people have so much money to put in a campaign so they can be in a position of power.— Skhumbuzo, Caller
These are people who fought for our freedom and 20 years later they are super-rich. It bothers me that Ramaphosa is rich. We got freedom in 1994 and 25 years later you get people like Ramaphosa who are super-rich, where was he where did he make all this money.— Skhumbuzo, Caller
In Ramaphosa's defence, Jack says people must not be jealous of rich people instead they must work hard to become rich as well.
The fact that somebody is rich shouldn't be a concern to other people. If you want to get rich you should work hard that is all. This thing of entitlement is getting annoying. Ramaphosa invested in mines and he has companies.— Jack, Caller
@Eusebius I find it hilarious that the guy defending Ramaphosa likens him to winning the lotto.— Bantse Mathule (@Bantse1Bantse) February 5, 2020
