ANC head of elections Fikile Mbalula took to social media today to throw shade at Minister of Mineral Resources Gwede Mantashe over the oversized grey suit he was once captured wearing. Old pictures of Mantashe in a grey suit had been circulating on social media, with most wondering what could have happened for then ANC SG Mantashe to end up in an oversized suit.

Though none of his colleagues commented on the suit at the time, Mbalula has now commented following Mantashe’s improvement after attending President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Sona in a black suit that was a perfect fit. A picture of the minister stretching his arms has been circulating, and Mbalula said he was showing off his well-fitting suit.

“Jonga, iyandilingana [look, it fits me],” said Mbalula as he made fun of Mantashe.
