- Tito Mboweni recently shared that he is "legally" growing his own marijuana
- Social media users roasted the Minister of Finance once again for his social media posts, assuming them to be the result of partaking in his own 'dagga' crop
- A number of users jokingly said that this made sense in light of the things Minister Mboweni has been posting, which to some may sound like a person partaking in ganja
South African Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is at it again on social media. He posted a few pictures in his latest endeavour - "legally" growing weed. The minister posted snaps of marijuana plants growing in a garden.
Mboweni has been getting roasted a lot on social media lately about the things that he posts, from his kitchen adventures to gifts he has been receiving.
As per usual, social media users had a lot to say about his latest posts. Some even went as far as saying that his growing of weed probably explains all the things he has been posting lately.

@KaConfessor replied: "Is that what you take in preparation for your cooking?"
EFF member Floyd Shivambu also had something to say about it.
He quoted the tweet and said: "Oh!! Now it makes sense!"
Other users were not opposed to the idea of the minister growing weed.
@nickhedley said: "We do have a cool finance minister."
@kevin_andile1 commented: "Weed is not a drug, to those Twitter doctors. Weed is God's plant all the way from Heaven."
The Minister of Finance simply cannot get enough and it is now a regular occurrence that he posts something on social media that stirs a few people up or causes social media users to question him.
Even though weed is technically legal in South Africa and many other countries, it may still rub some people up the wrong way.
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday on Tito Mboweni's post about receiving a chequebook from ABSA bank. South African Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni recently posted a picture that rubbed quite a number of people the wrong way. Over the weekend, Mboweni shared a picture of his new chequebook that he received from ABSA bank.
Back in June, Tito Mboweni tweeted that he is one of the few people who still insist on using chequebooks.
He captioned the post: "You can't get rid of us. Sorry!"
