- Former Minister of Sport Fikile Mbalula took aim at Cricket South Africa and criticised them for their policy on transformation
- He pointed to the current coaching panel and claimed that things have regressed
- Social media users slammed the minister for his verbal attack and urged him to focus on his current portfolio
Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula is no stranger to controversy and is very active on social media.
Mbaks shared another polarising tweet on Thursday as he slammed Cricket South Africa for their policy on transformation.
According to Mbalula, things have regressed at CSA and he cited the current coaching team as an example.
This was in response to a lighthearted tweet from CSA, which focused on Proteas legends Mark Boucher, Jacques Kallis and Charl Langeveldt.
The three former players have recently taken over the reigns and masterminded a brilliant victory over England during the first test match.
However, Mbaks was seemingly irked as he focused on the issue of transformation rather than results.
Briefly.co.za gathered that his approach did not sit well with the majority of social media users.
Many tweeps felt that Mbalula failed to drive transformation while he was in the hot seat and others insisted that he focus on his current portfolio.

"Mbalula is under the influence of something. Don't drink and drive. Remember one thing Minister we as South African does not take you serious anymore. Go ask Rasta to draw you a pic.Stay out of things that doesn't fit u. Boring guy."

"Remember you're the one who destroyed our beautiful game, Such legends with such a wealth of experience & knowledge, SA cricket is in good hands, Stay away from our Game."
DESI (@DesiganR) shared his disapproval:
"This comment right here shows how much you know about cricket as a sport. We been horrible for last few years and loosing players. We stop producing world class players and had a board that was run by corrupted administration."
