The DA has seen the video of President Cyril Ramaphosa addressing the Black Business Council where he chuckles as he jokingly gives details of how he told the Minister of Sports Arts, Culture, Nathi Mthethwa to "cancel" the R22 million giant flag project that has angered South Africans.
It was truly the President's Marie Antoinette moment.
The DA does not see the humorous side of this. What does the President find funny about his Cabinet approving this project?
