- Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula decided to hit the block button and distance himself from Mmusi Maimane on social media
- The OneSA Movement leader, Maimane, has expressed shock at Mbalula’s decision as he struggles to find the reason behind the blocking
- Mzansi followers have shared humorous reactions to Mbalula’s move while many have called for Maimane to apologise for whatever he's done
Former Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane has just discovered that his African National Congress counterpart, Fikile Mbalula, has clicked on the block button on him.
The Mzansi Minister of Transport seems to have had enough of having a friend on the opposing bench and decided to distance himself from the OneSA Movement leader.
Mbalula’s move has caught the attention of Mzansi's social networkers and many have called the man, also known as ‘Mr Fix It’, "childish".
As this is a trending topic, Briefly News went to select a few comments and reactions from the minister’s timeline.
“A whole transport minister acting as a child on Twitter while they try force e-tolls on us, PRASA is a mess, there is almost no decent public transport, potholes, and road deaths are one of the highest in the world.”
“I love comrade Mbalula. They must learn to mind their One Movement and leave the ANC alone!!!”
“The ANC can't be left alone, it's governing the country and it's not doing that well except in ransacking state coffers.”
“The best minister there ever was.”
“Mmusi must just write an apology letter.”
Taking a look at previous stories covered by Briefly News, it was reported that Mbalula recently told Parliament that he was working on fixing the Passenger Rail Agency of SA.
According to Fikile, he was already working on some "ambitious" projects to help the agency get back on its feet.
Meanwhile, South Africans seemingly had no faith in Mbalula's promises and @ScanaRostova have had this to say:
"I think given that this transport caters for the poor and those who are working, Min Mbalula must give us time frame... we have heard this before... Mr Fix, when are our trains coming back... let's talk time frame."
