There's never a dull moment whenever Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula is involved.

There's never a dull moment whenever Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula is involved. Known for his opinionated nature, Mbalula took on sports presenter Robert Marawa following a reply on Twitter to which he said the minister is acting like Tarzan.  

The Twitter war was triggered by TMG sports editor Mninawa Ntloko, who had earlier tweeted that Mbalula had stated on Tuesday that Durban could lose the 2022 Commonwealth Games due to cost challenges.

This is when Marawa said “This we knew when they were busy acting like Tarzan!! “

The minister then responded to this and said: “Your gripe be honest you never believed in us hosting the Commonwealth games“. Marawa responded: “It’s my opinion... I can’t change it‚ facts checked & as for the ‘usual hot air’ that is usually ur department!!“ The legendary sports presenter then told Mbalula that he tried to get him fired on South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) radio station Metro FM to which the minister asked: “Y will I want you get fired? ‚You should have long been fired I defended you. Don't digress.”

Here's a look at the Twar, as it happened;
