The internet trolls have already started, and unfortunately, Gigaba is the target.

South Africans on the internet are really not taking Pravin Gordhan’s sacking well, especially now that he has been replaced with Malusi Gigaba. Since there is nothing they can do about him being our next finance minister, they decided to focus on what they could change.

Shortly after President Jacob Zuma’s announcement, the keyboard warriors rushed to Wikipedia and changed Gigaba’s name, though it has been corrected.

A screenshot of the page has been circulating on social media, showing that his name had been changed to “Ignorance Malusi Nkanyezi Gigaga”, from Knowledge Malusi Nkanyezi Gigaba.

Check out the hilarious change below:



Not to worry if you’re not pleased with the Cabinet reshuffle, apparently the president miscalculated the dates and was only meant to announce the the reshuffle tomorrow on April Fool’s Day.
