Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula has been accused of many things, but to label him a people's politician would probably be a fair assessment.
Mbaks was recently praised for his fun-loving approach after he shared a lighthearted video via Twitter on Monday.
The minister included a comical caption:
"iCrush yoMama Benu - I told y’all, look at them unable to can."
Briefly.co.za previously reported on Mbaks' humorous tweets where he referred to himself as Mzansi's number one crush.
However, his recent video seemed to cement his theory as the group of women went wild for the minister.
The footage revealed how the ladies clamoured to take photos and selfies with Mbaks.
The post garnered a strong reaction, as many lavished praise on Mbalula for his demeanour, but others were quick to highlight his shortcomings.
Mohale Mpho (@_mphomohale) shared his admiration:
"The way you interact with ordinary citizens is amazing."
Makhosonke (@Makhosonke16) didn't mince his words:
"Naa our mothers know better,they can't crush on a politician who has zero principles,who go with the flow,an opportunist of note..a stomach politician.respect our mothers!"
Tebogo Mahlangu (@TebogosMahlangu) lauded the minister:
"Great one Mr Mbaks.. the love u showing to our people.. thank you."
