Despite the country’s turmoil, South Africans maintain their sense of humour. Many people were paying attention to the president’s address on Sunday night, during which Cyril Ramaphosa moved the country from alert level 4 to alert level 3 of the lockdown, but many couldn’t help but notice his make-up.

The president donned a black pinstripe suit, a white shirt, and a tie with red, black, and white stripes, as well as a South African Coat of Arms brooch.

While it is customary for people to use make-up before appearing on television due to the flashing lights and bright cameras, Twitter users thought Ramaphosa’s make-up artist went a little overboard.  “Who did his makeup?” asked radio personality Sizwe Dhlomo.

Another Twitter user, @siyantsele commented: “Whoever did Cyril’s make-up is the same person who was supposed to keep the iPad safe.”

Some suggested that the make-up artist chose “violence”. “Cyril’s make-up artist chose violence. I now understand what the Minister of Defence meant when she said, ‘an insurrection needs to have a face’,” said @MrStemela.
