Since the lockdown commenced here in South Africa we knew that entertainment content would be scarce as the entertainers aren’t allowed out.
Well politicians are allowed out and it seems they have decided to provide us with that entertainment we are sorely missing. Now of course politicians are only allowed out for essential matters of course and not lunches.
Minister Jackson Mthembu is the latest politician to get the country laughing while he was interviewed on Newzroom Afrika on Sunday. The minister mistakenly said “vibrators” instead of “ventilators” when he was detailing the equipment needed by hospital for those in ICU.
The minister has since apologised profusely to getting his words mixed up.
We are human after all and we are bound to make mistakes. At least the minister did provide us with some comic relief during this time.
