Tito Mboweni's undesirable cooking had netizens playing matchmaker.

Mboweni boils chicken

The former finance minister posted images of a whole chicken he boiled until the meat fell off the bone- and not in a good way.

The images showed how the uncooked chicken looked before the "infamous Tito Mboweni magic" as well as the cooked aftermath.

According to Mboweni, the meal turned out well, but many of his online companions would beg to differ.

Taking to X, the retired South African politician-turned-chef shared posts of his cooking progress as he prepared an unconventional meal of masonja (mopane worms) drowned in a tomato and garlic stew as well as some spaghetti.

Mopane worms are a staple source of protein and nutrients for many Southern African rural communities, a Limpopo delicacy. To many, however, Tito's version left a lot to be desired.
