In an interview with Trending SA's panel of presenters, former police minister Fikile Mbalula threw some shade at other South African minister, including those who hold his previous positions.
As TimesLIVE reported, Mbalula is not called the Minister of Twitter for nothing. Mbaweezy is not shy about his opinions, even if it shades other politicians.
So, Briefly.co.za gathered three of his quotes where he jabbed at the current ministers holding those positions.
1. Minister of Sport and Recreation- Tokozile Xasa
Mbalula said one needed to be fit for the position, adding you can't go through an "old age crisis".
"When I was in sports, it was sports and recreation, and so, it was not an old age home. You can't come into sport and sleep, it won't work. You must resonate with the mass of sport. Because sports is about feeding the nation's happiness."
2. Minister of Water and Sanitation- Nomvula Mokonyane
According to Mbalula, the minister of water and sanitation is not popular. Ouch!
"If you are the minister of water and sanitation, except if there is drought, then you won't be popular. Unlike a minister of police."
3. Finally, Mbalula shaded all minister he said depended on a crisis to be popular, including agriculture, forestry and fisheries and environmental affairs.
"Forestry we only think about you when we talking about fish quotas. We start to think, 'Oh, who's the minister of that thing?' Then energy, 'Oh there's nuclear, hai we don't want nuclear.' Then you start asking 'who is the minister of energy?
He concluded by saying other portfolios such as the police minster, who had more direct contact with citizens, would attract more attention.
"Unlike a minister of police, I mean, who doesn't know Bheki Cele?' he asked.
