In the 1990s, South African television aired a 12-part series called 'Funigalore'. In it, Evita Bezuidenhout, a colourful character created and performed by the satirist Pieter Dirk Uys, interviewed the new democratic government’s leaders, including Cyril Ramaphosa. A Facebook post shared nearly 3,000 times claims the interview took place on Ramaphosa’s farm in 1993 -- implying that the now president enjoyed not only affluence but close ties with prominent white personalities before the end of apartheid. Black South Africans do not know the “real” Ramaphosa, it suggests. In fact, the interview took place in 1994 -- after South Africa became democratic -- and was filmed at a farm that was not owned by Ramaphosa.
