Many people were not happy with Mbalula, and said that they suspected he might have been guilty of involvement in corruption.
Many people demanded that Mbalula answer for himself at the Commission, especially after Trevor Manuel told the Inquiry that Atul Gupta knew about Mbalula's appointment as sports minister before Mbalula did.
"Mr big mouth must come and answer like he always talk too much," wrote one user, Bhekah Koza.
Another, Mandy Kuenene, said, "[Mbalula] mocked Agrizzi but actually Agrizzi is a much more mature man then he could ever be."
"No one is above the law including Mbalula," added Ditiru Seerane.
Some, however, defended Mbalula. One users wrote, "He's busy with election campaign so give him space please," while another said that Mbalula did not have to appear unless a warrant was issued against him.
