South Africans are not sure if it is April fools or not after the MMC for Economic Development and Spatial Planning was revealed.
What makes the situation funny is that his name is Bruce Lee and he is Asian, seeming like a bad stereotype.
Mzansi social media users started a trend with Bruce Lee and flooded Twitter with their reactions.
Here is the original tweet from the City of Tshwane:
Floyd Shivambu couldn't hold back and had to share the tweet:
Mzansi social media users started a trend with Bruce Lee and flooded Twitter with their reactions. With some of them pointing out that there are Chinese South Africans.
Some people really decided to take it further and bring in some other martial arts celebrities.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. With lockdown keeping people indoors and away from their usual past times, particularly on the weekend, some people have to find creative ways of doing their hobbies.
South Africans are really good at making people laugh when times are challenging and an innovative cyclist has shown that there is a silver lining, as long we look on the bright side of life.
Briefly.co.za caught wind of a video uploaded by @JnzBeats, a musician and photographer, shows him cycling through his house, and into the garden and back again. This is exactly the kind of thing we need to keep us laughing.
