- As the country is still coming to terms with the incident at Lebogang Khitsane's memorial, National Rakgadi continues to trend
- Finance Minister Tito Mboweni took to Twitter to ask his followers what exactly a National Rakgadi is
- Saffa tweeps took the opportunity to troll the minister in the funniest ways possible
The word "Rakgadi" has been trending on various social media platforms since the incident at tombstone designer and manufacturer, Lebogang Khitsane's memorial. Rakgadi is a word that describes a paternal aunt (father's sister).
The word has been trending since this past weekend and now we have Finance Minister Tito Mboweni wanting in on the trend. In a recent tweet, the minister asked his followers what a "National Rakgadi" is.
The confusion and sternness in his tweet caused South African tweeps to answer the best way they know - by trolling the unsuspecting Tito. Take a look at his tweet below:
The tweet replies section shows the creativity of Saffas as some tried to explain the phrase to the minister whilst others trolled him.
"You are our National Cooking Rakgadi."
"Just like a Minister of Finance does NOT EXIST in South Africa but we have a Minister of Tinfish and Garlic."
"I think National Rakgadi needs to have a chat with you regarding your supposed cooking. I think its time Rakagdi gets a suitable partner-helper..."
"Yabonake Minister Man shrugging you are missing the point. A National Rakgadi is someone that's tired of either covering up, being complicit through their silence or participation in the corruption that's gone on & still going on in our country."
In other Rakgadi news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a photoshopped image of Juju as National Rakgadi. Rakgadi has taken social media by storm after she spilled the tea at her brother's memorial service. The mourning sister accused the late Lebogang Khitsane's wifey of being unfaithful on live television.
Since then, #Rakgadi and #RakgadiChallenge took over social media and the name has since become synonymous with outspoken people who are not afraid to drop the truth, no matter the situation.
