Panyaza Lesufi took to social media to show the Springboks support and he even threw in an Afrikaans bit to prove he "did not hate" the language.
The Gauteng MEC of Education posted a photo of a Springboks jersey with his name on it on Twitter.
He captioned the post:
"Slaan hulle 'Die Bokke' (Hit them Boks) @Springboks as I prepare to go to Japan to support a truly South African Rugby Team #VictoryIsCertain @robertmarawa."
The post sparked quite the reaction and Mzansi had a lot to say about the MEC writing Afrikaans as well.
Malibongwe, @HK_Reigns, wrote: "Wow, where are those who are calling you racists or anti-Afrikaner. You are just a patriotic citizen."
Bernard Sithole, who goes by the Twitter handle @BernardMSithole, commented: "Jy praat mooi Afrikaans mei Oom."
Suzani Erasmus, @BenadeSuzani, added: "Baie trots Mnr. Gooi daai Afrikaans."
