A screenshot of a satirically created WhatsApp group that has the likes of parliament speaker Baleka Mbete, EFF leader Julius Malema and his deputy Floyd Shivambu and DA leader ‘Meneer’ Mmusi Maimane has been widely circulated on Twitter, eliciting a barrage of laughs because of the chats featured on it.
While it isn’t authentic, the chats show a funny conversation between the country’s ‘top politicians’ who are making fun of Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’s cheating scandal that resurfaced after his wife, Norma, gave an interview to eNCA.
In the chat, ‘Mbete’ asks the comrades to play a game and mention their favourite song. Everyone proceeds to pick a tune that starts with ‘Norma’, but when ‘Buhle’ is added to the group, Gigaba leaves.
Twitter has been having a field day with Mkhize’s tweets, with one person mockingly calling it a PowerPoint presentation. The New York-based stylist has been firing off a barrage of tweets since Tuesday evening in retaliation to Norma who held her TV interview on Sunday morning.
Mkhize and Malusi were involved in an affair in 2014, which ended a few weeks into his marriage. Their affair was exposed at the end of that year, which led to Norma confirming that her hsuband had indeed slept with Mkhize.
