Keeping up with Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is not a hard task, considering he tweets daily about his activities. Most recently, Mboweni tweeted about his travels to an area near St Julian in Argentina when he was still chairman of Anglo Gold Ashanti.
The minister wrote that he has always dreamt of catching a Patagonian toothfish (a species of notothen generally found in deep cold waters). However, the minister travelled in what he referred to as the "wrong fishing season."
He was met with icy conditions and "amazing" glaciers. He shared the throwback picture of himself standing in front of the built-up snow in the area. Clad in a large jacket and sunglasses, the minister had a lot of responses from many South African Twitter users who didn't realise it was a throwback.
Take a look at the minister's tweet below:
Here are some of the responses to the minister's tweet:
"I’m calling Hawks, where did you get the money to travel there?"
"Rama should've made you the minister of aquarium and fisheries man."
In other Mboweni news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on the minister after he tweeted about newly-crowned Miss SA, Shudufhadzo Musida. Mboweni recently took to the app - not to share another picture of his infamous homemade meals but to congratulate the young lady who just earned herself the prestigious title of Miss SA.
While a few South Africans called the minister out for specifying that the young lady was from Limpopo, many of them simply took the opportunity to share their congratulatory messages with Shudu, as she is now affectionately called by her adoring fans.
"Felicitations! Miss South Africa! Take a bow Limpopo, South Africa! Limpopo Queen. Halala," wrote Mboweni in his Twitter post.
