- Herman Mashaba took to Twitter to share images of Khayelithsa after his visit but he decided to add a little spice to his tweet
- Mashaba seemingly came for the ruling party in his tweet but minister Fikile Mbalula was having none of it
- Mbalula clapped back at Mashaba and South African tweeps are now weighing in on the disagreement
Former Mayor of Johannesburg Herman Mashaba shared a tweet which slyly judged the ruling party. Mashaba shared images of Khaylitsha, with part of his tweet reading: "If this is 'good governance', we don't have an understanding of what 'good' actually means."
It wasn't long before Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula saw Mashaba's tweet and hit back at him. Mbalula said: "Mention the party name sir, don't generalise. Who is governing the w cape? Your party democratic alliance."
Many South African tweeps were not very impressed with Mbalula's response and clapped back at him in the replies section.
Take a look at Mashaba's tweet below:
This was Mbalula's response:
Here are some of the responses to Mbalula's tweet:
@kaliduku1 said to Mbalula:
"You are governing nationally Jola. This reflects on your government about how your own people have been treated for years."
"Are you minister of all other parts but Western Cape? Don't be daft and give people ideas of breaking off from South Africa."
Staying with politics, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Tito Mboweni dining with Floyd Shivambu. The finance minister recently shared a picture of himself and Governor Kganyago having what he explained to be a small dinner at an unknown restaurant.
In his post, he goes on to explain that the EFF's Floyd Shivambu decided to gatecrash the little gathering. Watching an EFF leader and an ANC leader dine together is certainly not a sight South Africans get to see every day, especially since both parties have enough beef to open a well-sized butchery.
Even more surprising is that Mboweni called Shivambu a "good young man." Taken-aback Twitter users quickly headed to the comment section. A lot of them questioned Mboweni on his decision to describe Shivambu as a "good man" while others criticised the political leaders for current problems the country is facing.
