We are often disgusted by Africans who do not respect their position or who take us for granted in their call of duty. So when South Africa’s Minister of Home-Affairs saw the following video making the rounds on Twitter of an employee in his area of responsibility this morning, he reacted with the following statement.
I was this morning informed about the video circulating on social media platforms, and have asked the Department of @HomeAffairsSA to investigate this matter and take swift action against the official. pic.twitter.com/ZwllSemEyZ

However, the Minister’s reaction was met with mixed responses.
Fair enough but the president must also take action against you for playing candy crush on duty the official is motivated by you pic.twitter.com/wJrulfYDI5

Now you know the things we have to deal with. Mind you the queue could be as long as the Nile river.

Don’t fire this lady, reprimand her for using her phone or impose any sanction equal to departmental policy on such acts. Don’t let social media run government.

Some thought the lady should be fired, others thought otherwise. If you were in the Minister’s position, what would you do? Take our poll below and share your thoughts.
