(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – 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.
Before suffering the face mask mishap President Ramaphosa annouced that the nation would be easing some of their lockdown restrictions from next month.
He urged those leaving their homes to travel on public transport to wear face masks, and then attempted to give an instructive demonstration on how to wear a mask – which did not go to plan.
Leading by example the president stretches the fabric mask around one of his ears, but struggles to hook the other ear in the elastic.
A second later the mask rebels, pinging off his face before President Ramaphosa firmly places it back over his ears, this time leaving his eyes covered by the mask like a blindfold.
