Police minister Fikile Mbalula took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to share how he spent International Nelson Mandela Day.
Mbalula, who took over the reigns in March following President Jacob Zuma's cabinet reshuffle, spent time with police officers at the station.
He also got to do some police work during the visit -- certifying documents for citizens who queued at the station's front desk for assistance.
"Working at Sunnyside Police Station today. "satisfying" (certifying), "eve davids" (affidavits) and all," Mbalula tweeted.

While playing police officer, Mbalula shared how his interaction with the people of Sunnyside went and in true Mbalula style, the citizens were not spared his touch of spice.

While we commend the minister for visiting his own officers, we are not sure if his visit counts as giving back to the community, which is what Mandela Day is about. He is police minister, after all...Suggest a correction
