The flurry of ANC MP resignations barely a week after President Cyril Ramaphosa’s cabinet announcement has sent the Twitterrati into overdrive.
It also comes just days before Ramaphosa delivers his second State of the Nation Address (SONA 2019), where he will outline the vision and plans for the country.
Some are tweeting that this latest round of resignations should serve as a worrying trend for Ramaphosa.
Others are saying there are other, perhaps, more sinister motives at work.
Then there are those who believe that the resignations are all about serving, or is it safeguarding their own self-interests.
Then there are cries of double standards.
And, with challenges comes opportunity!
