Now that Cyril Ramaphosa has officially been sworn in as the new South African president everyone seems to be talking about who they think he should remove from the cabinet. In a recent article on News24 columnist Adriaan Basson listed the minister of police, Fikile Mbalula, as one of those who should go.

Seemingly aware of an upcoming cabinet reshuffle the outspoken Mr FearFokkol, as he refers to himself on Twitter, urged the new president to make his decision while also mentioning that he opposed Jacob Zuma in the elective conference last year.

“I opposed President Zuma in Mangaung he didn't reshuffle ME, Dont ask me Why? Cde President Ramaphosa must choose his team and move on. We need to focus on winning the election,” Mbalula posted on Twitter.

Twitter users found this funny, with many saying they believe president Ramaphosa should remove Mbalula as the minister of police.
