Fikile Mbalula switched from tweeting about sports to crime the day he was appointed as police minister, and by the look of things, the transition has been smooth. Since then, he has been tweeting about reported crimes and the work police have been doing all over South Africa with the hashtag #WanyaTsotsi.
But it seems he has been overdoing it, according to one follower, who told the minister to tone it down, asking him if he was going to tweet every time he did his job. It’s going to be a long way, they said.
“Hesana are you gonna tweet every time usenza umsebenzi wakho na? Uwoah kisezobakdala I’m telling you,”
However, the minister was not going to allow any negative comments on his timeline, as he hit back at the critic, painfully so.
“Which part of the body ekuqaqambelayo xa sisazisa uluntu ngomsebenzi wamagosa omthetho? Uva buhlungu phi? (Which part of your body aches when we tell people about the work police are doing? Where does it hurt?)”
Another one thought it would be good idea to tweet about her relative who had just been released after serving time for robbery. She further said the relative was now spoiling people with the money they stole before going to prison.
“Good morning Mandisa, which side of the country is going through such a rainy season ? Please turn on your location.”
She failed to follow Mbalula’s instruction, as she deleted her tweet.
