Twitter’s very own official “The Cleaner” account (@RealMrumaDrive) left peeps in chuckles after he shared a throwback photo that had he edited when he made former SA finance minister Tito Mboweni a white man.
The photo was reposted on Twitter on Monday, 24 January but was originally shared just over a year ago on 12 January, 2021.
Reflecting on his past editing skills @RealMrumaDrive captioned the post:
“I used to be too much.”

Ex-finance minister Tito Mboweni's apartheid comments cause stir online
Briefly News previously reported on former Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni who did not open a can of his seemingly favourite offering of Lucky Star pilchards but, instead, a can of worms on Twitter.
In a short but punchy post, the politician decidedly struck a chord with the politically conscious after his statement regarding the African National Congress' (ANC) fight against the racially oppressive apartheid system and not white people.
"We didn't fight against white people. We fought against the apartheid system. To build a non-racial, non-ethnic, non-sexist and democratic South Africa. Basic ANC principles!"
Mboweni's remarks follow the party's suspended member of the top six Ace Magashule's sentiments that the party had forgiven late former apartheid-era president FW de Klerk for his role in apartheid but had not yet excused him.
