A Twar broke out between EFF MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi and Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula whose towel meme battle went viral. It all started when a photoshopped picture of “Mr Fix” Mbalula in a towel did the rounds on social media, coming to Mbuyiseni’s attention.
Naturally, it meant Mbalula had to clap back and he, in turn, shared Mbuyiseni’s photoshopped picture. “They did not leave you alone nawe,” Mbalula tweeted at Mbuyiseni in the ultimate meme battle.

The pictures were a viral hit with many South Africans sharing the politicians’ meme battle across various social media platforms.
It can’t be easy being in the public eye and having your disputes in front of an audience, here’s how South Africans viewed this epic meme battle, some even roping in CIC of the EFF into the Twar:
