- Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula called out former president Jacob Zuma in a subtle way
- Mbalula shared a video of Zuma urging everyone to comply with the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture
- Soon a video of Mbalula trash-talking the commission made its way to social media as a 'this you' response
Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula shared an old clip of former president Jacob Zuma to Twitter recently. In the video, Zuma urges everyone to cooperate with the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture. He continues:
"I trust that we will all respect the process and place no impediment to prevent the commission from doing its work. I thank you."
The 24-second clip was shared on Wednesday evening and has already gained over 46 000 views on the social networking site. Some SAns enjoyed the subtle savagery shown by Mbalula but many called him out.
Below are just a few of the responses Mbalula's tweet received:
"The Commission stories started by Madonsela and she was endorsed by our disgraced Courts. President Zuma was forced to appoint this useless Zondo. And I'm warning you comrade Mbaks don't make jokes with peoples president. Because president Zuma belongs to South African Citizens."
"You're disappointing, President Jacob Zuma doesn't mind giving his side of the story but only if Zondo is not chairing the Commission because he feels he is not treated the same. You've never made so much noise when Brian Molefe & Koko was giving testimony. Siyanibuka nje."
"Rest bhonyongo rest. You will still be a minister even if Cyril goes."
Briefly.co.za recently reported on Mbalula after he jumped in to defend the African National Congress (ANC) from former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane. Mbalula shared another clever retort with Maimane after Maimane tweeted:
“We are going to create jobs for the youth.” An #ANCProverb,' wrote Maimane, to which Mbalula responded:
"What did you say when you were a very energetic leader of the DA?"
Soon many locals were in the comment section sharing their thoughts on the exchange. While many people bashed Mbalula and the ANC, others joked about a blunder Maimane made during one of his speeches.
