“She was seating with them, and she proudly took to the podium in front of them to read a insulting story at a funeral and called president Cyril Ramaphosa ‘this lawyer’. What level of nonsense is this? ” A social critic was send furiously typing.

The comrade who died was a long time friend of Lindiwe Sisulu. She said even though he experienced difficult times, he was a person who hardly complained about anything.

“Billy experienced a lot of bad times in our hands, but you would never complain to him, he would just go on,” she said.

Amid criticism, there are however, those who came out to defend her saying she did nothing wrong by making that joke at the funeral about Ramaphosa.


“Lindiwe did apologise for using the inappropriate word to describe Cyril, but because she was telling a true story, she had to tell it like it happened. She was aware that some words are sensitive hence she apologised,” they said.
