On Monday, Fikile Mbalula held a press conference to explain the reopening of the aviation sector. The Minister of Transport revealed that the aviation sector would operate at 100% capacity thanks to the use of high-efficiency air-filters.
However, during his speech Mbaks used a funny statement to explain how these air filtration systems work.
Mbalula was quoted saying:
"People ask why we are operating at 100% capacity on flights. It’s because planes can absorb disease. Planes are fitted with High-Efficiency Particulate Air-Filters (HEPA). The plane is not a taxi. You fly for, say, two hours and you are compressed. The filter can eat any form of virus, including Covid-19."
Max Hurrell - the man who remixed Dlamini-Zuma's "when people zol" statement - saw another opportunity to release a song.
The muso promised Mzansi another parly remix in July and he delivered.

In just a couple of hours, the video received over 1 000 views and South Africans gave their two cents' worth on the remix.
Anita Thomas, who goes by the Twitter handle @AnitaThomas321, commented:
"No guys we in trouble, our ministers."
