Minister of International Relations Maite Nkoana-Mashabane was on Thursday caught dozing off in parliament.

During President Jacob Zuma’s final oral reply to MPs’ questions for the year, IFP MP Mkhuleko Hlengwa tweeted a picture of the minister sleeping in the National Assembly.

This is not the first time Nkoana-Mashabane has been caught sleeping in the House. In April last year, EFF parliamentarian Mbuyiseni Ndlozi took jabs at the minister after he caught her sleeping.

And of course, who can forget President Jacob Zuma? While Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba delivered his first budget speech in parliament last week, the president was fast asleep.
