A hilarious parody of some of Mzansi’s most notable politicians has gone viral via social media.
The comical cartoon features the likes of political heavyweights such as Fikile Mbalula, and it was the Minister of Transport himself who shared the image via his Twitter account.
Briefly.co.za noted the popular reaction as the post went viral, attracting more than 100 comments in the process.
Gauteng Premier David Makhura, Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni and Mbalula all feature in the cartoon, but are made to look like school students.
The cartoonist’s creative drawing illustrates the debate surrounding the controversial e-toll system.
It portrays Mboweni as the schoolyard bully, who is a strong advocate for the payment system.
Mbaks seems to be the voice of reason in the colourful caricature, but an unnamed character is seen minding his own business in the background.
However, most tweeps shared the opinion that the mystery man could be none other than President Cyril Ramaphosa.
