Hai but Tito Mboweni really do be sharing some peculiar meals. The former finance minister was preparing a chicken stew for dinner when loadshedding hit, but Mzansi is not completely convinced that he was unable to cook.
Many Saffas are under the impression that 'Chef Tito' either has a gas stove hidden somewhere or that he owns a generator. The numbers on his stove staying red - with a power outage - also confused a few tweeps.
Moving on to the stew itself, the ingredients were very 'Tito-esque'. Lots of onions, peppers and some bland chicken.

"Next time please @tito_mboweni, let the chicken cook first before you add the peppers; by the time the meat is cooked, those peppers (and carrots) will be over-cooked and lose all nutrients. Please consider this advice."

"You have a gas cooker, we've seen it before."
"Even Eskom can't stand your cooking any more sir..."
"I've never hated chicken like this after seeing your chicken."

The post has also attracted the Jacob Zuma Foundation’s spokesman, Mzanele Manyi. Tito wrote on Twitter:
“Could some Good Samaritan take me through the steps of how one prepares chicken like this. Samblief...”
