South Africans on Friday made mockery of President Cyril Ramaphosa struggle to put on a face mask.

The South Africans took to Twitter and cracked jokes about the way the President put on the mask.

The South African leader was filmed trying to put on the mask at a forum in Johannesburg.

Some asked why he wore it on his eyes at first. But others defended him by sharing a video showing a health worker wearing it the same way.
