Gigs shows fin­ger to the na­tion

Re­sponse to EFF gag goes vi­ral

Sowetan - - Front Page - By Silusapho Nyanda

Em­bat­tled politi­cian Malusi Gi­gaba is a gifted man and he knows it.

Gi­gaba told EFF MP Mbuyiseni Nd­lozi as much in par­lia­ment, on na­tional TV. The home af­fairs min­is­ter, whose now in­fa­mous sex video is the world’s big­gest porn site, wagged the pinky at Nd­lozi. The EFF MP, who started the gag by sug­gest­ing the min­is­ter get a phone that can­not be hacked, got more than he bar­gained for.

The pinky wag­ging was Gi­gaba telling Nd­lozi that he was not as gifted as the min­is­ter. Gi­gaba’s ego has been boosted by praises of the size of his es­teemed mem­ber that was widely shared on the in­ter­net. Dur­ing the par­lia­men­tary ques­tion-and-an­swer ses­sion by Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa, the EFF spokesper­son took a jibe at Gi­gaba by sug­gest­ing that the pres­i­dent start order­ing low-tech cell­phones that have no cam­eras or can not be hacked. “Honourable pres­i­dent, you know this phone doesn’t have a cam­era. You might want to start order­ing it for cab­i­net mem­bers be­cause it will save us a lot from some of the em­bar­rass­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

“It doesn’t have a cam­era. It can’t even be hacked, this phone. Can I come and give it to you so that you have a model of what phones might be crit­i­cal for honourable mem­bers,” said the Peo­ple’s Bae while bran­dish­ing a blue old-school phone.

The video now widely shared on so­cial me­dia then cuts to Gi­gaba, who is seen show­ing Nd­lozi the pinky fin­ger.

The act is in­ter­preted to sug­gest that Nd­lozi is not as gifted as Gi­ga­byte.

The video has sent Twit­ter into a frenzy once again. @Ti­mo_An­dreas tweeted: “I blame ladies who took the mo­ment to praise Gi­gaba’s gun, now he as­sumes his is big­ger than ev­ery­one else.” @Sdu­phun­ga_Dave came to Gi­gaba’s de­fence, say­ing: “Nd­lozi took it there so Gi­ga­byte is right to push back.” Mean­while, @Ki­zobantu was not amused. “A whole min­is­ter mak­ing ges­tures like that in the Na­tional Assem­bly ... he must hang his head in shame but alas, he has no honor,” the tweet said. @Molek_Emp tweeted: “Malusi Gi­gaba’s come­back was bril­liant.”

Malusi Gi­gaba gives EFF MP Mbuyiseni Nd­lozi the lit­tle fin­ger in par­lia­ment yes­ter­day in a video that has gone vi­ral.
