Johannesburg - Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula in the early hours of Friday morning claimed that his Twitter account had been hacked, after an image of a half-naked woman with her legs spread were posted on his social media account.
The image, which was posted on Thursday night, immediately went viral with Twitter questioning the minister about the inappropriate picture.
He took to the social media platform to insist that he had been hacked, explaining that it had happened before and that he was taking measures to ensure that his password was safe.
Twitter, meanwhile, has been unforgiving with both Fikile and Mbalula still dominating the trends list.
