Democratic Alliance (DA) Chief Whip John Steenhuisen was pushed into the spotlight after it emerged his highest education level was matric.
Steenhuisen became the butt of all jokes on social media after it was revealed he had no post matric qualifications.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier the revelation followed the DA proposing that a university degree should be compulsory for the position of Chief Whip.
Since the news broke, South Africans took to social media to share their two cents on his lack of qualifications and soon #SteenhuisenGoToSchool started to trend on Twitter.
Needless to say, the EFF, who prides themselves on being educated, took the lead on throwing shade at the DA's chief whip.
EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu wrote: "So @jsteenhuisen doesn’t have a degree or diploma or certificate in anything? His shallowness explains the whole thing."
The People's Bae also took shots at Steenhuisen on several occasion on Sunday. While referring to a 53-year-old gogo, who recently passed matric, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi told the DA chief whip it is never too late.
"#Steenhuisen can do well to see that it’s never, ever too late @jsteenhuisen #SteenhuisenGoToSchool," Ndlozi wrote after he retweeted an article about the grandma.
Soon, there was a full-blown Twitter roasting of John Steenhuisen and Briefly.co.za decided to gather some of the best tweets.
