Mbalula has been sharing photos and videos of his experience at the world's biggest football bonanza on his Twitter profile, Briefly.co.za learned.
In his latest post, he said the event is the "biggest party on the planet." He was attending the Brazil vs Switzerland match, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Earlier, Mbalula posted a photo of himself and Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, just before the match.
The popular former Minister is not only attending the prestigious event, he's also doing it in style. He posted an image of himself travelling from Moscow to Rostov in luxury.
Mbalula also noted that South Africa is held in high regard in Russia after successfully hosting the 2010 World Cup.
On 16 June, Mbalula attended the Argentina vs Iceland match in Moscow.
