On Thursday, 25 May, former Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni posted a picture of himself on his timelines which resulted in Twitter users curious to know which lip gloss he was wearing.


Mboweni took to Twitter to celebrate Africa Day this year and showed off wearing a traditional printed shirt. According to the Parliament Republic of South Africa website, Africa Day is “aimed at celebrating and acknowledging the successes of the OAU since its inception. It symbolises Africa’s unity, commitment to peace, democracy, and economic development.”

It was reported that this year marked the “60th anniversary of the formation of this first establishment of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), the precursor to the African Union (AU).”

“Continuing with the AFRICA Day theme. The Thabo Mbeki AFRICA Day lecture will be in Conakry, Guinea. Great idea!

This is because, in the picture, Mboweni appeared to have moisturized his lips with a “glossy” application which left many Twitter users curious to know what brand of lip gloss he used.
