- Businessman Sentletse Diakanyo has been dragged on social media after he tweeted a pic of himself wearing a leather mask
- Sentletse said he used leftover leather to make the mask
- Peeps were not impressed with the mask but were more concerned about his breathing under the thick material
Since the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world, many peeps have designed their own face masks to protect themselves from the disease while others are selling them.
Some masks have been trending on social media platforms for their hilarious designs.
Businessman and former EFF chief of staff Sentletse Diakanyo has been dragged on social media for his leather face mask.
The leather furniture maker tweeted a pic of himself modelling his design and boasted that he used leftover leather to make himself a mask.
Tweeps - including Mzansi celebs - were not impressed. They were more concerned about Sentletse breathing under the leather.
Mmusi Maimane tweeted:
"And the breathing? Do you just do it all in advance?"
Fistaz Mixwell asked:
"Fighter o hema byang nou (How do you breathe now)?"
Rapper Stogie T said:
"Through the wound."
Rami Chuene said:
"I can't breathe."
"How do you breathe?"
"Please don't suffocate in there."
"You’re struggling to breathe I can tell."
Sentletse explained that the breathing part was not an issue. He claimed he was breathing the same way he does when wearing a surgical mask.
"The breathing is not an issue. It's getting a design right that's an issue. You shouldn't be able to blow air through a mask. If you can, you can equally blow droplets through it.
When Stogie T later asked if he could order the mask, Sentletse said:
"Not yet. Still refining it."
Briefly.co.za reported that Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga has finally addressed Mzansi on the plan to open schools as the nation continued to fight the coronavirus pandemic. The minister announced that schools would still be reopening on 1 June.
