Ramaphosa is always 'shocked' at what is happening in the country - caller
CapeTalk listeners weighed in on President Cyril Ramaphosa's response to events in the country.
Listeners say that Ramaphosa seems to be out of touch with what the citizens are going through.
This follows Ramaphosa's response that he was shocked and livid over Eskom's power cuts and again shocked over Metrorail's disrupted operations in Gauteng.
The president is also being accused of remaining mum on ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule's allegations of corruption during his nine-year tenure as Free State premier.
Someone was asking where is the president in this Magashule saga. I tell you where he is, he is somewhere in his palace shocked. He was shocked about being stranded on the train, he was shocked about Eskom being plundered, shocked about Sars, he is shocked about everything.Marvin, Caller
The president can't answer everything but where Ace Magashule is concerned he needs to address the nation, he is his second in command.Gilbert, Caller
Ramaphosa has been seating back as corruption thrives over the years. We were naive to expect anything different now.Caller
