It was a bad day for transport minister Fikile Mbalula when on Sunday, news reports alleged that he received a R50 000 payment from the now infamous CR17 campaign despite publicly supporting Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.
Mbalula was allegedly paid by the campaign of Cyril Ramaphosa together with Zizi Kodwa and others. He was then accused of being a “sellout” by some Twitter users with his name on the second spot on the Twitter’s South African trend list.
A Twitter user, Riccardo_Elle ™ (@Landless_Native) said what Mbalula allegedly did was not surprising at all.
I'm not surprised at all, by nature Mbalula doesn't have a backbone remember this is the same guy who went to Saxonworld for organic curry an quickly switched to Stellenbosch for potjiekos. He's self serving playing games of politricks but who isn't #CR17BankStatements pic.twitter.com/au0eLTM6vv— Riccardo_Elle ™ (@Landless_Native) August 18, 2019
