Gigaba Apologetic For Finger Gesture In Parliament
Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has since apologised on social media for the pinkie finger gesture he made in Parliament Tuesday November 6 during President Cyril Ramaphosa’s question and answer session.
Gigaba made that gesture toward Mbuyiseni Ndlozi EFF MP, who took a swipe at Gigaba by suggesting that the cabinet members should be provided with cellphones without cameras that cannot be hacked.
This was some sort of ‘jibe’ towards Malusi Gigaba in reference to the leaked sex tape which went viral on social media.
The opposition leader said Ramaphosa may start ordering old Nokia phones for Cabinet members to save them from embarrassing activities.
Gigaba’s gesture was referring to the size of Ndlozi’s manhood.
In his tweet, Gigaba added that the stress of the past 10 days has taken a toll on him but the gesture was inexcusable.
The minister has since taken to Twitter to apologise for his gesture and added that the stress of the past 10 days has taken a toll on him but the gesture was inexcusable,which he said was provoked by “petty taunts”.
I apologise, unreservedly, for this gesture. The petty taunts that provoked it and the strain I have been taking, over the past 10 days, are no excuse for my indiscretion.

However, there have been some mixed emotions about his apology on social media. Others are calling for his resignation while others were just unconvinced by his apology.
Too many apologies….
Do the country a favour… RESIGN.

Chief resign and go sort yourself out. You will try to make a political comeback in years to come, but for now go morena.
