South Africa’s billionaire President Ramaphosa flies economy class, causes a stir (PHOTOS)

South Africa's new president, billionaire businessman and politician Cyril Ramaphosa, is saving taxpayers a lot of money by flying economy class.

He was spotted flying Safair to Durban a few weeks after being pictured on a SAA plane.

His co-passengers snapped pictures with the president and shared on Twitter.

Ramaphosa is well known as a businessman. His estimated net worth is over R6.4 billion ($550 million) as of 2018, with 31 properties and previously-held notable ownership in companies such as McDonald's South Africa, chair of the board for MTN and member of the board for Lonmin.

Many South Africans were impressed by his decision while others were not.
