South African Twitter comes together to defend the Gautrain

Saffas will not take nonsense from anyone.

South African Twitter comes to

First things first, let’s start with the definition of high speed rail.

“While there is no single standard that applies worldwide, new lines in excess of 250 kilometres per hour and existing lines in excess of 200 kilometres per hour are widely considered to be high-speed.”

Now let’s move onto the Tweet that has South African Twitter freaking out.

Do you see what’s got people’s goat up? SA Twitter reckons Morocco isn’t the first African country to get a high-speed rail. Have a look.

And there’s more.

Fake news, sommer. Sjoe. Us Saffas love defending the things we’re proud of…but….and this is a big but… the Gautrain top speed is 160km/h.

Remember the definition of high speed rail? Well, that train in Morocco is gonna be going up to 320km/h.

Maybe not so fake…

But still, don’t tell Saffas we’re not good enough. We’ll defend our good bits tooth and nail.
