CAPE TOWN – President Cyril Ramaphosa is under special scrutiny in the National Assembly on Thursday afternoon.
Trevor Noah, the South African comedian and host of top American satirical news programme The Daily Show is in the House.
Noah was welcomed by Ramaphosa in Parliament: “Honourable Speaker, it’s a real pleasure and joy to welcome Trevor Noah amongst us.”
Ramaphosa, who is answering questions on Thursday, told MPs that Noah – currently on a break from the United States – recently set up a foundation that will focus on education.
Ramaphosa said: “So we applaud him for ploughing back to the country once again. But he is also here for another purpose, to come and look at me, and all of you – and make fun of me. He has promised he is going to make fun of me.”
