A video of President Cyril Ramaphosa failing to contain his laughter while the leader of the red berets Julius Malema warned to nationalize private hospitals, has given South Africans reassurance.
The video was captured on Wednesday morning on a media briefing which followed a meeting between Ramaphosa and leaders of opposition parties.
At the meeting, the country’s lawmakers spoke about an action plan to stop the spread of coronavirus and raise consciousness in communities.
Leaders were given a chance to comment on the outcome of the meeting, the hospitals had to work with the government to avoid nationalization, Malema said.
Some made light of Ramaphosa’s reaction. Others felt Malema made a good point.
There are 116 cases of Coronavirus in South Africa.

A good wake up call though for the greedy and selfish private health care facilitates
They are so shrewd and will throw out anyone who is unable to pay upfront if they aren’t medical aid patients
