Even former finance minister Tito Mboweni can't avoid the curse of load-shedding, with Eskom apparently ruining his dinner recently.

The Nation's Chef has kept us all entertained with dishes, which he shares snaps of on social media, but Mboweni took to Twitter this week to share that load-shedding had rolled in to put an end to his chicken stew.

Just as I was preparing my chicken stew, boom, power off! Jeso, we shall overcome,” he said of the incident.

It led to some hilarious reactions, including some users “wishing strength to the chicken to come to life and run out of the pot before generators kick in”.

It didn't take long for Mboweni to learn his lesson and prepare dinner a little earlier, so that he could be done before darkness returned.

Here are some of the hilarious reactions to Tito's 'ruined' dinner:
