- Draya Michele, an American actress, is visiting South Africa according to her Twitter feed
- Police Minister, Fikile Mbalula decided to respond to her message with a request for her to take a seat
- His response has had South Africans up in arms, with many asking what he's busy with
Draya Michele announced on social media yesterday that she was in the country. Fikile Mbalula responded to the former ‘Basketball Wives LA’ cast member and urban model's tweet with one of his own.
The Police Minister told her "we're busy," and while the rest of the country were getting in on the joke, some of his followers didn't appreciate his efforts to be included in the humour.
His followers quickly reminded him of what they believe should be his priorities, reminding Mbalula that the excuse of being busy was what a large segment of the police force was known for.
Briefly.co.za gathered there were also quite a few people who had no idea who Draya is.
The 33-year-old is an American media personality, socialite, model, actress, and fashion designer who is most popularly known as a former ‘Basketball Wives LA’ cast member and one of Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriends.
Michele also had a cameo role of sorts in the 2016 film, ‘The Perfect Match’ starring Terrance J and Cassie.
South African humour also kicked in to welcome her to the country:
Michele didn't give a reason for her being in the country, but South African's mostly feel it wasn't to be told to take a seat by the Police Minister.
