Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni often invokes a strong reaction after sharing posts via social media.
Tuesday proved no different, as Mboweni showcased another outfit via Twitter and included the following caption:
"A Masai warrior manager at Geitha AngloGoldAshanti gold mine in Tanzania gave me this outfit. I have treasured this over the years. Very handy in cold Makgobaskloof!"
Briefly.co.za noted the reaction, as South Africans seemed to see the funny side.
Some labelled the outfit a dress, despite the Maasai tribe being renowned for their brave warriors.
Eagle-eyed tweeps also spotted Mboweni's famous brown shoes and the lighthearted comments kept pouring in.

"If the whole of the country can have the "Loyalty" you have on your shoes.. We wouldn't have people cheating. You love your shoes Minister."
iVenda Lase Mlazi (@Oscar_T_Hamese) added,
"The Lucky Star colours had to be there."
Bra Tito (@fan_mboweni) said,
"The shoes are a matter of principle, a good economist knows how to use resources in the most efficient manner. No Gucci required."
Mbulawa Athini (@IsiKhokhelo) called for calm:
"The hate we have towards Tito Mboweni is just appalling. Even at times he just tweet something out of humor, you all attack him. Chill people, look how natural and down to earth this leadership is. Abanye could have their suits on for this pic cz we can't see their normal lives."
A few days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Mboweni said that if businesses want funding they need to be properly registered.
Mboweni also said that the National Treasury is in talks with the BRICS bank, International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
