8 moments Fikile Mbalula shut down Twitter as he hits the 1 million mark

South Africa's Police Minister has on several occasions lit up Twitter—and we've captured some of those moments

South Africa’s Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula has a way of winning hearts of social media users and more so those on Twitter.

The Minister is without doubt one of the coolest government officials in Africa seeing that he has mastered his “social media public relations strategy” gauging from his entertaining, life-giving and laugh-inducing tweets.

His fluency in popular culture and understanding of the unwritten social media rules make him invincible against trolls, entertaining and fun.

Over the weekend, Mbalula celebrated his 1 million follower on Twitter becoming the first South African minister to reach the million mark. He celebrated the glorious moment in style with hilarious memes.

And as the minister celebrates the glorious feat, Business Insider SSA looks at some of the moments he shut down Twitter with his witty and savage tweets:

When South Africa beat Wales 23-19 in the Rugby World Cup 2015 Quarter finals.

Again, when South Africa thrashed USA 64-0 in the Rugby World Cup 2015.

Bruh....

He even did the 'Nae Nae' dance.

Remember the Drake and Meek Mill beef back in 2015, yeah, Mbalule had to chip in...

...and he went savage on him

Now a Twitter user started a meme using Mbalule's photo...

The meme went viral especially when the hashtag #AfricanParentsInAMeme began trending....

But Mbalule was visibly not excited by the use of the photo in the hashtag

Over the weekend, Trump withdrew an invitation to NBA basketball player Steph Curry after stating that he 'hesitated to honour the invitation'. Mbalula saw the drama on Twitter and decided to extend his invitation to Curry, since he could not secure Beyonce’s performance during the 2010 World Cup. He offered him an invitation to Luthuli House, the HQ of Africa National Congress(ANC) party.
