Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has left the country in stitches once again with another hilarious tweet. This time the minister channelled his inner Rakgadi as he posted about his chickens. In a post uploaded to Twitter, the minister showed off his gorgeous fowl.
Two images of the chickens were paired with an image of Rakgadi in her famous pose where she sticks out her hand. Making reference to Rakgadi's infamous speech, Tito even used the expression she made - "aah" - in his tweet.
Tito's tweet now has almost 2 000 likes and over 300 people are tweeting about his new-found meme usage. Some Mzansi tweeps trolled the minister about his garlic and others shared their own memes.
Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the top replies to Tito's tweet:
"I'm sure you can't wait to marinate them with garlic."
"I heard you only feed them garlic Mr Mboweni."
"Liar, thinking about roasting it nje Minister."
"Hahaha mara Uncle Tito, so true, even though you add your garlic and green pepper its still a chicken."
"Do you call one Piri and the other Piri, then you have chickens Piri-Piri?"
The minister recently made headlines when he asked Twitter who Rakgadi is, Briefly.co.za reported on the tweet and the hilarious replies from Mzansi tweeps. 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. The tweet replies section shows the creativity of Saffas as some tried to explain the phrase to the minister whilst others trolled him.
