'Oh dear': Tito Mboweni on 'worn-out' shoe jokes
Finance minister Tito Mboweni has reacted to jokes about his shoes, using his popular phrase, “Oh dear”.
Mboweni's “worn-out” shoes saw the minister making the top trending list on Twitter on Thursday, as social media users took to the platform to poke fun at them.
Some offered to buy him shoe polish, while others suggested he buy a decent pair — he is the minister of finance, after all.
Defending himself, Mboweni paid dust to the jokes, saying, “Oh dear!!”.
The finance minister uses the phrase often, even dismissing EFF deputy leader Floyd Shivambu with it.
Oh dear! Not this please. We are in trouble here. I have never seen a COSATU Congress like this since 1985. Unite, close ranks!— Tito Mboweni (@tito_mboweni) July 13, 2015
There are many memorable moments with good Oldman Madiba. “ Tito, did you make up your bed this morning?”. No. Housekeeping will do that. “No, you must always fix your bed”. He banna! This oldman. He always made his bed. Oh dear! We miss you Tata! pic.twitter.com/rCnsgmwfcg— Tito Mboweni (@tito_mboweni) August 26, 2018
