- South Africans have taken the time out to poke some fun at Finance Minister Tito Mboweni
- Mboweni had a lot to say about Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema's tea date on Friday, 5 February
- Someone has now photoshopped an image of Mboweni into one of the pics of the Nkandla tea date
After Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema asked to have tea with former President Jacob Zuma, who happily obliged, South Africans have had a lot to say. Finance Minister Tito Mboweni did not exclude himself from this.
Mboweni shared a few tweets referencing the tea at Nkandla that happened last week Friday, calling it a 'strange political alliance' before bringing up the lack of masks and social distancing.
Most recently, a picture of Mboweni photoshopped into the tea date has been making its rounds on Twitter and Mboweni shared it himself.
Take a look at Tito's tweets about the meeting below:
The photoshopped image of Mboweni created quite a stir on Twitter. Take a look at the image and some responses below:
"I just want to remind you that the food you post is nonsense, that’s why you were crying for Zuma’s tea."
"A Minister of Finance who is a professional with experience in both government and private sector who never posts economic-related topics so we can have a discussion and engage each other as citizens but rather act like a Tweleb. Your obsession with Zuma is boring now!"
"Just be glad the person who did this didn't put unnecessary extra garlic with tin fish! Eyy that would've been a disaster."
"Corruption is real. Where is your cup of tea minister?"
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Mboweni and Malema had made peace. Mboweni took to social media to let South Africans know that he's making peace with Juju.
"Julius Malema called. Good conversation. No issues any more. Spears down now. Let's grow South Africa together," said Mboweni.
Malema replied to Mboweni's tweet by simply saying "Indeed". It really seemed as though the two politicians have put their issues aside for the greater good of the country.
Julius Malema and former president Jacob Zuma met for tea at the Nkandla homestead last week Friday, 5 February 2021. According to those who were also in attendance, the tea was quite "hot" and delicious.
