Minister of transport Fikile Mbalula's words of “inspiration” over the weekend have left many concerned, and others in stitches.

Mbalula was delivering the keynote address during International Civil Aviation Day at Polokwane International Airport. However, it was his interview with SABC that raised eyebrows after he said his job as transport minister was to “inspire.”

“I didn't come here because I am a master of transport, but I came to inspire,” said Mbalula.

Taking to social media, many slammed Mbalula for being a “comedian” instead of doing his job. Others said Mbalula was just being himself, the “funny guy”.
