- Over the weekend, Lindiwe Sisulu had some fun in the sun with her family at home

- While many enjoyed a glimpse into Sisulu's family life others had a lot to say about her luxury home
Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu, had a chilled weekend at home with her family.
Sisulu shared a video of herself playing soccer, in heels, with her family. She posted the clip on her Twitter page and captioned it:
"It’s match day at our house too. Please don’t mind the heels, I did say drip is forever."
The video gathered over 201 700 views and South Africans had different reactions. While many commented on the family fun others could not help but notice her luxury backyard.

"Living in luxury while the people who vote for you live below the poverty line with no clean running water while your swimming pool is clean."
Another tweep, @africanscribe, added:
"Wow, Lindiwe! Imagine how many water tankers could be filled from that swimming pool."
Randy Watson, who goes by the Twitter handle @kgoatlapa, said:
"Glad to see your pool is filled to the brim. I haven't had running water for basic needs in 5-and-a-half months during a raging pandemic. Thank you and @JHBWater..."

"So this is your house but you have the nerve and audacity to build shacks and give them to your voters and call those shacks home/house? Ukhohlakele mntaka Walter no Albertina."
Meanwhile, in other news, Briefly.co.za reported earlier this week KFC was at the centre of criticism after they made an inappropriate joke about Tsonga culture. The fast-food company shared a picture of some Tsonga ladies dressed up in their usual colourful clothes.
The caption of the post read: "When you don't know what colour to wear so you wear them all." While KFC meant the tweet as a joke, it quickly went sideways with tweeps calling it culturally offensive and insensitive.
Soon thereafter, #KFCMustFall was trending with over 4 000 tweets about the saga. View KFC's tweet below.
