In The News South Africa

Twitter reacts to #SaveSA – not much fence-sitting as users either endorse or slam Pityana

As Sipho Pityana of the Save South Africa movement delivered his “alternative” State of the Nation address in Cape Town yesterday, twitter responded with vigour. While there were retweets and votes of confidence, there was also very harsh criticism.

President Jacob Zuma is scheduled to deliver his 10th State of The Nation address in Parliament tomorrow, and the Save South Africa movement has used that as a mechanism for publicity to highlight what they call the biggest problem facing South Africa: Zuma.

However, while many were vocally in support of what was being said at the address, others accused Pityana of being part of desperate establishment attempting to maintain white domination of the South African economy.

Below are just some of the tweets that were shared.

Sipho Pityana is an ANC member by the way. He’s one of the very few swimming against the tide of corruption #SaveSA
