How Embarrassing, Mbalula Just Made Things Worse For Himself

With elections around the corner, politicians are campaigning for their political parties. However, they need to be careful not to respond to everything that is aimed a them. There are some politicians who seemingly find it too hard to just observe. 

The Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbalula is on it again there by Twitter. He is very active on Twitter, and usually gets to respond to Tweeps. He responded to a tweet of pictures that have been trending for a few days now. The tweet speaks of how the ANC is so useless, and this was after a picture of a child writing a homework in the evening, by the street, using a street light started trending.

Most South Africans are aware of this. The majority of South Africans in rural areas grew up without electricity, went to primary school, and even finished high school without it. When children get home from school in most of these rural communities, they have a long list of chores to complete. Some students are responsible for their younger siblings after school. It varies from family to family; some must ensure that their goats and livestock are safe at home. Schoolwork will be the last thing on your mind, and it will be the last thing you have to complete.

Some argue that the child should have completed his schoolwork throughout the day. These are those who see things from a different perspective, which is not incorrect. However, some argue that these individuals are missing the point, as it is not about when the youngster completes his or her schoolwork. People should pay attention to where he is doing his schoolwork and try to figure out why he is doing it there and at that time. Most people think he was playing throughout the day, which may or may not be accurate.

On ANC's defense, Mbalula has come out to say the pictures were taken in Kenya, and not in South Africa. This only made things worse, as people came out in numbers to throw in more pictures that show how useless they are. Some did so in a sarcastic manner.
