#MaskChallenge: Entire nation’s mood lifted as Ramaphosa struggles to put on face mask during nation address

You have to hand it to President Cyril Ramaphosa for being the most considerate president during these trying times. The past few weeks have been nothing but a rollercoaster of bad news, butterflies of anticipation & an altogether somber mood, yet he still managed to make the entire nation laugh with a simple silly mistake.

Being a South African comes with a little bit of humour and a dash of insanity. What was supposed to be a national address on a way forward amidst the lockdown, turned into a social media challenge when the president struggled to put on his facemask.

Ramaphosa took to the pulpit to address the nation, but found it difficult to put on his face mask, covering his eyes instead of the nose and mouth. South Africans didn’t spare him as they quickly turned that into a challenge and it is currently on Twitter’s trends list.

It took about a minute or so for the president to finally get it right and by the time he did, twitter users had already dragged him into the dungeons of meme island.

Check out some of the hilarious tweets below:

Pardon us Mr President, but we just couldn’t help ourselves LOL!
