- Finance Minister Tito Mboweni took to Twitter to share his wonderful dinner last night
- Minister Mboweni served himself some mielies, still wrapped in the leaves - the most delicious way
- Tweeps asked Mboweni if he had added garlic for flavour while others asked if that had been the whole meal
Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is back with another meal post. This time he served himself some mielies. 'Chef Mboweni' shared an image of devoured mielie on a plate and cooked in the leaves.
Although there weren't any typical mielie spices such as salt or Aromat visible in the image, many tweeps believe that Mboweni had added his special ingredient - garlic - for flavour. Minister Mboweni shared the picture of his dinner to Twitter last night.
His post already gained over 1 500 likes on the social networking site and once again, the replies section is full of hilarious jokes.
Take a look at Mboweni's post below:
Here are some of the responses to his tweet:
"Wena Minister, kanti who do you stay with?"
"Garlic is missing there minister."
@AneliNogemane also asked:
"No garlic butter tata??"
"Awu Minister, you didn't sprinkle a little garlic there? You must be having a bad day."
@LuckyEvansCeo quote tweeted:
"We only recognise tin fish and garlic."
"At least the garlic got a much-needed break."
In similar news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a local man who made a Mboweni-inspired dish. Popular Twitter user Daniel Marven shared his own version of a dish by Finance Minister Tito Mboweni using Lucky Star fish, potatoes, onion and green pepper.
While his dish turned out pretty well, he forgot the garlic. Marven shared a video to his Twitter account describing the dish and calling it "Tito Mboweni".
Marven later shared images of the process of cooking the 'soup' dish accompanied with a final product image. His hilarious video gained over 15 000 views on the social networking site but tweeps really want to know why he didn't use any garlic.
@Amanda40759968 said in response to Marvin's tweets:
"Garlic is missing in the recipe."
