South African president Ramaphosa, struggling to wear his face mask on live TV
South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa was captured struggling to get his facemask on after delivering a speech on the importance of wearing them, in a blunder livestreamed yesterday.
President Ramaphosa announced that the nation would be easing some of their lockdown restrictions from next month.
Adding that non-essential trips should not be made and those leaving the house to take public transport are asked to wear masks.
In a now viral video posted on Twitter, President Ramaphosa struggled for a full minute to hook the tribal motif mask to his face.
In one attempt, the mask was covering his eyes and nose while in another attempt, it almost ended up on his throat.
As the president attempted to hook the mask to his ears and pull it to cover his nose and mouth as required, a sign-language interpreter looked on, confused by the seemingly complicated but otherwise mundane task.
