You can all calm down now, President Cyril Ramaphosa also thinks his mask mishap was funny!


Johannesburg, South Africa (24 April 2020) – President Cyril Ramaphosa is also laughing with the nation about his little mask mishap.

On Thursday night the President addressed the nation about how from the 1st of May 2020, the government will implement a risk-adjusted strategy aimed at easing the current lockdown restrictions. The decision was taken during a National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) meeting on Thursday.

But he also inspired hundreds of jokes and memes on social media when he failed to put on his cloth mask properly, hooking it over his eyes and nose, instead of his mouth. This as he left the podium from the Union Buildings, where he had been addressing millions of South Africans.

But the President has taken it in his stride and laughed off the “mask mishap” during an on a site visit to COVID-19 facilities in Gauteng.

“For those that were laughing at me yesterday, now, let me tell you something… I am going to open a TV channel where I am going to teach people to put on a mask.”
