Cape Town - It didn't take South Africans long before they injected their particular brand of humour into the matter of Democratic Alliance (DA) Chief Whip John Steenhuisen's matric qualification. Besides giving their comments and analysis of the situation, many shared quips and memes over the matter.

It all started after a Sunday Times report revealed  Steenhuisen could lose his position as chief whip if a proposal that only a Member of Parliament with a university degree be considered for the position is adopted by the party's KwaZulu-Natal caucus to the Independent Commission for the Remuneration of Public Office Bearers.

Once news spread, John Steenhuisen became a trending topic on social media.
