Fikile Mbalula has made it clear that his account was hacked.
The Minister of Sport and Recreation had to explain this after a picture of a woman was posted on his Twitter page on Thursday evening.
The woman in the pic was wearing a panty and bra and her legs were, uhm, wide open. This sounds unbelievable, right? It really happened. We censored the pic, you can see the original version here.
The snap caused major drama on the social network.

Passwords changed - this is the third time this is done. Amagqwirha will not win... And I won't deactivate— RSA Min of Sport (@MbalulaFikile) January 28, 2016
Sizwe Dhlomo to the rescue
Some people were not buying Mbalula's story about being hacked. However, some might have changed their minds after radio and TV personality Sizwe Dhlomo stepped in.
So now, I was supposed to let a man get crucified for an internet pic? 😂 We had a good laugh but he didn’t take that pic.— Sizwe Dhlomo (@SizweDhlomo) January 28, 2016
This whole nude drama hasn't dampened Mbalula's mood at all. We all know that the Minister has a sense of humour. He had some funny reactions to the saga.
