Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula has called out a media broadcasting outlet after they made a blunder with his name. While interviewing him, the broadcaster referred to him as FF+ leader Pieter Groenewald in the tagline. Social media users were, of course, in stitches.
Mbalula posted a screenshot of the interview, showing the blunder. Social media users found it funny and couldn't help but tease him about it. Twitter user hlubolwami said:
"Oga they changed your name ooo."
"They're reading your mind and your political position on the land issue."
"Irrespective of your disguise, we will still be expropriating the land Pieter."
"Hello Oga Peter."
"Confused by the attire."
"Results of defending FW de Klerk."
"I actually DON'T see a problem here.... actually that's your new name..."
"Awe Peter awe! #SONA #SONA2020"
"No lies detected."
"Might as well call him that."
"Baas Pieter, hoe gaan dit?"
