Tito Mboweni took to Twitter to teach his followers how to cook chicken stew, all while the country was officially wrapping up its sixth national elections.

Mboweni, who was appointed finance minister in October 2018, is known for being outspoken on Twitter and for using the platform to share his lessons on farming. On Saturday evening, Mboweni posted a step-by-step process, with pictures included, of how to make a "simple" chicken stew.

Twitter users reacted to Mboweni's culinary skills, and more specifically to the timing he chose to make dinner - which happened to be when the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) was closing off the national elections.

The IEC on Saturday evening declared the results of the country's 6th democratic national and provincial elections to be free and fair, News24 reported. The ANC won the elections with a majority of 57.51% of votes. The DA has been declared by the IEC as the official opposition with 20.76% of votes. The EFF scooped 10.79% of votes.

Just before the IEC made its official announcements, Mboweni commented on the election outcomes on Twitter. "The people have spoken! Let us respect the will of the people! All power! To the people!" he tweeted.
