Tito Mboweni shares riddle about himself, Mzansi guesses answer for 50 marks

Briefly News previously reported that former finance minister and newly-appointed Twitter celeb, Tito Mboweni, has once again got netizens in stitches after he shared a meme about his infamous shoes.

The riddle was originally posted on Facebook by Isaac Mangena where he asked Saffas a 50-mark question about the owner of a pair of dodgy shoes. The hint was that the person who owned the brown footwear had resigned.

Chef Mboweni was not only roasted for his choice of shoes by Mangena but also for his cooking abilities, or lack thereof. Magena offered a clue to the question which stated that the owner of the footwear was not very kind to tinned fish.
