- Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has definitely made the responsible move, getting his coronavirus vaccine in his hometown of Limpopo this week
- Health MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba personally administered the Ministers vaccine
- Mzansi took to the comments section, sharing their reactions to the post
Mzansi's favourite Finance Minister is definitely living by example, taking to a hospital in his hometown of Tzaneen to finally get his coronavirus vaccine. A very sensible Tito Mboweni was personally vaccinated by Health MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba.
The Limpopo Health Department shared snaps of the procedure on their official Facebook page. Mboweni was definitely cool, calm and collected as the MEC administered the jab.
While some social media users commended the politician for being so responsible, others were more interested in the Minister's humble footwear. Their silly reactions are definitely worth reading.

Janine Scorer said:
"Good job Phatudi hospital every one says you very efficient."
Patrick Mashishi asked:
"So, every Minister get vaccinated at his home constituency?"
Muiva Thambu-Junior Ṋangammbi said:
"Vaccinate his shoes also"
Lefiso Komane said:
"He is such a simple man, never mind his shoes. We are waiting for that vaccine at Ga Molepo"
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has clapped back at EFF party leaders after they interrupted his swearing-in at Parliament this week. The Minister has insisted he will never be late for official business again.
Taking to his Twitter account, Mboweni shared he had definitely been taught a hard lesson about punctuality, insisting he'd never be late to work at the risk of being cut off by the EFF.
"The day the Chief Justice taught me a lesson! Never be late for your allocated time. You will end up sworn in with the reds...." he captioned the cheeky post.
While some social media users sympathised with the Minister, others believed a larger more sinister agenda was at work, with Mboweni solidifying ties with the EFF. Check out some of the comments below:
"A terrible things to go thru am sure."
"It was God's timing so that u can be sworn with the future leader."
"Isn't being late a cultural thing? After all, time keeping is just so yesterday."
"... and the red tie??? Couldn't get a red overall in time or to fit??? Thousands might believe you, I don't!!"
"Thieves had already been sworn in Mr lucky star."
