MY FELLOW South Africans, President Cyril Ramaphosa is due to address the country on Monday. In a tweet on Sunday, the Presidency confirmed that Ramaphosa will address the nation on October 30 at 8pm.

Ramaphosa travelled to France only days ago to support the Springboks, who won the Rugby World Cup final against the All Blacks, on Saturday.

The only thing on Mzansi’s mind right now is whether or not Ramaphosa will he declare a public holiday in light of the Boks’ win.

Ramaphosa’s spokesperson, Vincent Magwenya, said the president was inundated with messages from residents calling for a public holiday if the Boks defended their title and brought home the coveted Webb Ellis Cup.

Speaking to journalists, he said Ramaphosa was considering the request.

Speaking ahead of his flight to France, Ramaphosa said he was confident the team would bring it home!
