In other news about Mboweni, Briefly News previously reported that the former finance minister shared a snap of a peculiar looking fish dish on Twitter and peeps were far from impressed.

Mboweni's post resulted in tons of questions as locals could not believe that a dish like this made its way out of a kitchen. While Mboweni did not say it was his dish, he simply asked a question about how fish meals should look.

Some peeps were hella confused and started pointing out that the pan it was cooked in does not look like one of Mboweni's. Other peeps just went straight for the kill as they roasted the politician like he roasts his chicken.
