Bantu Holomisa goes viral after “technical” difficulties [video]


Bantu Holomisa

The UDM’s Bantu Holomisa stepped up to the plate on As It Happens on Thursday night. The teleprompter screen gave him a proper klap. The internet only made it hilariously worse a few hours later.

For the entirety of this working week, eNCA has handed over half an hour of prime time for political leaders to try their hand at live news presenting.

On Monday, the EFF’s Mbuyiseni Ndlozi smashed it out the park, the ANC’s Pule Mabe stepped up on Tuesday and the DA’s “bulldog” Natasha Mazzone divided opinions on Wednesday.

While almost all of the shows so far had their “awkward” moments, Holomisa was the first politician to really experience “technical” difficulties while live.

When we say “technical” difficulties, we mean that the general seemingly lost his place while reading the teleprompter.

If you watched the show live, it was more awkward than funny.

As we South Africans know, though, Twitter can turn anything into a laugh fest in a matter of minutes.

Twitter user Nonke Mabizela was so captivated by “mistake” that he recorded that part of Holomisa’s monologue. His constant laugh in the background has taken the clip to another level.

But shame man, losing his place couldn’t have come at a worse time for the UDM leader. He was attempting to make that old ” Give a poor man a fish vs teach him to fish” analogy.

The general was a good sport though, even after a host of other big-time politicians took to Twitter to jokingly take a jab at him.

On Friday, you can catch the IFP’s Liezl Van Der Merwe in the hot seat at 20:00. Will she have any tongue twisting analogies up her sleeve?
