The post sparked quite the reaction and Mzansi was left with mixed feelings - some congratulated Dlamini-Zuma while others said she's too old for the position.

Bokang Mokgaga, who goes by the Twitter handle‏ @MbMokgaga, commented: "Ebuhn, this gogo is old though. Why not appoint someone younger? Money circulating between few old grannies."

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported Dlamini-Zuma has set her sights on another position - deputy president of South Africa.

Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says that she is ready to serve the government in any capacity should the ANC retain power, including being deputy-president.

South Africans were left wondering if she might be elected as the vice president after David Mabuza postponed being sworn in this week.
