What's made news on social media?

Acumen Media has released its weekly round-up of the biggest stories making news on social media platforms in South Africa. At the top of everyone's minds was the Global Citizen Festival; while the Motsepe Foundation was praised for its donation, the South African Police Services was criticised for its poorly planned policing strategy.

Other stories coming to light include Eskom's dreaded return to regular load shedding; the death anniversary for former President Nelson Mandela; Johann Rupert's contentious appearance on PowerFM; President Cyril Ramaphosa's launch of the Atlantis SEZ; as well as Shamila Batohi's appointment as the new head of the National Prosecuting Authority.

That was not all, however, as state capture, land reform, and the EFF remain topical.
