#ProudlyBroughtByANC trending on SA Twitter

Billboards poking fun at the African National Congress (ANC) and the controversial e-tolling system have led to #ProudlyBroughtByANC trending across South Africa.

HumanIPO reported last week on the billboards, which state: “E-tolls. Proudly brought to you by the ANC”, with the the Democratic Alliance (DA) claiming responsibility for them yesterday (Monday).

The billboards were sighted along the N1 and N3 freeways in Johannesburg.

Dipuo Peters, South Africa’s transport minister, responded to this by calling those involved with the billboards “cowards… who don’t have the decency to actually acknowledge that the ANC led government has delivered in this country”.

The Twitter trend #ProudlyBroughtByANC moved to first position on South African trends by late afternoon yesterday.

This is what some Twitter users had to say using the above mentioned Twitter hashtag:
