Slightly amusing yet rather disturbing Twitter exchange between an angry member of the public and the South African National Roads Agency Limited’s (SANRAL) account. From past tweets and the bio, it appears that the @realSANRAL account is genuine and belongs to the company of which the SA government is the sole shareholder.
Andrew Elia sent the account a message saying that SANRAL should be ashamed of themselves because Atlas Road and the N12 is a mess and that nobody was fixing it.
SANRAL’s response…he should be ashamed of his haircut.
Yoh!, not exactly the response one is looking for from a government company that is represented by the Minister of Transport now is it.
But then again this is the SA government we’re talking about so is it surprising?
What do you make of this and what should be done?
Assuming this is indeed the official account of SANRAL.
UPDATE: @realSANRAL have just deleted the tweet that says Andrew Elia should be ashamed of his haircut. Too late chaps…it’s right there in the screenshot.
