- Lesego Semenya recently suggested that someone should buy Tito Mboweni new shoes for Christmas
- The Finance Minister found the idea rather amusing and agreed that this would be a welcome gift
- This comes after Mboweni's shoes served as a major source of amusement for Mzansi this year
A person can't help but appreciate Tito Mboweni's old school, frugal ways especially when it comes to footwear.
The Finance Minister's worn-out old shoes often got Mzansi buzzing throughout the course of the past year.
The politician's questionable kicks got Lesego Semenya calling for someone to put a new pair of their shopping list for the Minister's Christmas gift:
"Hope someone bought new shoes as a Christmas gift in Magoebaskloof for a certain person."
The usually good-natured Minister seems open to the idea, sharing that the gift would be a welcome one:
"New shoes are most welcome. Will declare in Parliament. But they have to be English Clarks ones. Size 8.5/9."
Mboweni insisted that this brand and this brand only would suffice, explaining why online:
"Nothing less! I need strong and comfortable shoes as we walk together to rebuild our economy."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that SA Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni recently is a source of endless laughter and top-notch entertainment.
The minister once again took to Twitter to share a post that left Mzansi falling out of their seats from laughter.
This time Tito was once again posting about pilchards - this time ones that were so hot and spicy, that they left the minister with a face full of sweat.
In the caption of the hilarious post, Tito explained how the spicy meal had left him gasping for air because he added way too many chillies in it.
"The consequences of too many hot chillies in the Pilchards!! Hot!! Tjoooo!," Tito hilariously captioned the Twitter post.
Mzansi was once again left laughing until their bellies ached. Many of them took to the comment section to share their thoughts. Some of which you can read below.

@Kevinkgoete said: "If these fish make you sweat, mos the other woman fish will kill you grootman."
@kevan_logic "Imagine, if this clown posted as much about what he is doing to recover the economy as he did about food. Most of what he posts about the country is basically asking people what should be done. This is the one who controls the country's purse and the most he does is cook"
