My fellow South Africans…. meet the kids that call me dad

When he's not leading South Africa through a pandemic, the president of SA is also a father.

Two days ago SA President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation on the latest with regards to the coronavirus. In his address, he made reference to him also being a father.

As he spoke against the high rates of GB incidents that the country is dealing with Ramaphosa shared how, “As a man, as a husband and as a father, I am appalled at what is no less than a war being waged against the women and children of our country.”

The president is married to medical doctor Dr Tshepo Motsepe-Ramaphosa, and they have four children named Tumelo, Andile, Kiki and Mashudu. He also has a daughter named Tulisa (not shown below) that he had with his late first wife Nomazizi Mtshotshisana.

Here’s are the children that call Cyril Ramaphosa both president and dad:


Andile is the firstborn and is a businessman who owns a company called Blue Crane Capital and his wife Bridget Birungi is from Uganda and is the daughter of a former Ugandan Prime Minister.
