#SouthAfricaIn3Words: SatAfrika is lit!

Yasmeen Osman | 10 April 2017

South Africa. Love it or hate it, it’s still your motherland.

There’s no doubt that South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

We have stunning beaches and peaceful mountains. We have gorgeous people and a rich culture. We have wildlife wonders and national treasures.

But we also have load-shedding, corruption, high crime rates, a bad credit rating and a president with more than a handful corruption charges against him.

South Africans have taken to Twitter to let everyone know what they thought of their beloved country using the hashtag #SouthAfricaIn3Words.

South Africans are doing exactly what the trend says. They are describing South Africa using only three words.

We don’t know how or why this trend started. But it might have something to do with the bad turn South Africa has taken recently. You know, because of Jacob Zuma.

We’ve managed to come up with a list of some of the best #SouthAfricaIn3Words tweets. We could all do with a laugh or two during these gloomy times.

1. The BEST country
