Twitter, one of several social media handle was yesterday lit on fire when a journalist from the US, who also happen to be a White House correspondent for the Associated Press Darlene Superville referred to President Ramaphosa as an Unidentified Leader.
In her tweet, she identified some of the world leaders at the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France, but failed to identify the nations president.

She tagged Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, and Narendra Modi, the prime minister of India, but somehow could not identify Ramaphosa.
President Ramaphosa arrived at the summit on Sunday and aims to market South Africa as an investment destination and trade partner during the summit.
The presidency had released a statement earlier regarding the summit – “The working visit will provide a platform for President Ramaphosa and members of Cabinet to invite global partners to experience South Africa as an investment destination and trade partner, and to participate in the country’s efforts to secure faster, sustainable and inclusive economic growth and reduce unemployment.”
The tweet has since generated alot of reactions from south Africans; some of them below:
