South African president struggles to demo virus mask at coronavirus briefing
Hilarious video shows the President attempting to get the elastic around his ears but only managing to cover his face.
South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa struggled to put on a facemask on after delivering a speech on the importance of wearing them.
“We are calling on all South Africans to wear a face mask, whenever you leave home,” he exhorted the nation.
“Our clothing and textile industry, including small businesses, are gearing up to produce these masks on a mass scale. Let us continue staying safe.
“And thank you for what you have done and continue to do. May God continue to bless South Africa and continue to protect her people.”
But was meant to be a dramatic, leading-by-example putting on of a mask, instead ended comically as he went to put a one on.
After fumbling around for a few seconds the President managed to get one over his face and said “thank you”.
