It appears Mboweni is learning to prepare tinned fish just a little better. The local delicacy is popular amongst South Africans so we're sure the Minister felt it necessary to brush up on his Pilchards cooking skills, especially when preparing for guests.

"I was there last week"


"Bathong papa na le ja ditamati di phela"


"Am I the only one who thinks Pilchards shouldn't be mixed with anything especially di beans..."

Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported fun-loving Minister Tito Mboweni recently headed to Twitter to share some photos of his spicy mopane stew and pap dish that left his forehead sweaty and his ears ringing.

He also shared a snap of himself looking all sorts of bothered after eating the hot stew.

"Too many chillies in the masonja mix. From our garden! Too hot!! Lesson learned," he hilariously captioned the array of photographs.

Minister Tito Mboweni seemingly never learns his lesson about preparing overly spicy food and then sharing the results with his followers, who almost always show him zero mercy but instead laugh at or criticise him.

Mzansi had this to say:

@Fikz_the_Cook said:

"Awusemuhle Minister uyi Chipi."

@_xidumu said:

"What is wrong with eating mopani worms, I don't think it affects his ability as a minister of finance. Unless you know something we don't know."

@brandon_theog said:

"See... like it when you tweet your masonja, not when you are pretending to give a damn about the common South Africans, no politician does. Ya'll all just securing your bags, am I lying?"
