- Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is known for his questionable cooking skills that he shares online
- The minister recently shared an adorable gift he received when he returned to Johannesburg
- Someone gifted "Chef Tito" his own white chef's jacket to allow him to take on his cooking escapades head on
Finance Minister Tito Mboweni surprisingly received an early Christmas present. The home cook shared an image of his brand new chef's jacket to Twitter recently. Mboweni has definitely made his mark in the cooking world since lockdown as he shares every meal he makes.
Chef Mboweni managed to create a die-hard following on Twitter as tweeps eagerly await his next home-cooked meal. Above the chef's pocket is "Tito Mboweni" which has been beautifully embroidered in black.
South Africans took Mboweni's gift as their opportunity to slyly roast the minister for his excessive garlic use as well as his love for Lucky Star's tinned fish.
Take a look at Mboweni's tweet below:
SAns had some creative and hilarious responses to Mboweni's new chef's jacket:
"@GordonRamsay needs to come taste."
"You must use it to take karate lessons or something because you and being a chef are like Chiefs and winning. You can’t cook."
"And we all know that deep down this is all you ever wanted to be welcomed by fellow chefs... I'm happy for you Chef Tito, now go publish a book that will be relevant to most South Africans and sell more than that one on Somizi..."
"I guess like an honorary doctor, in case of emergency they call a real doctor an honorary chef will need to call a real chef when it's time to cook."
In other Mboweni news, Briefly.co.za recently reported that his shoes were roasted online, again. The Finance Minister recently took to his Twitter page to share some heartfelt pictures of himself and his guests who he explained in the caption, were visiting him at his Makgobaskloof home in Limpopo.
While the pictures showed people having fun while in each others company - something quite heartwarming especially regarding the time of the year, many didn't pay any attention to that, but rather to the Minister's shoes.
Read a few of their hilarious comments below.
"These shoes are strong."
"And you had to wear special shoes."
