As reported by Times Live, the former ANC treasurer-general was describing a phone call he allegedly had with former Constitutional Court judge, Zak Yacoob.
Here’s what we got from the video:
“A call came in when I was at home at 6.50pm, a very unexpected, unknown number to me. I picked it up and here is the voice of someone, who I couldn’t hear who he said he was, saying that why did we, in the committee which I served … write such a s**t opinion?” said Phosa.
Cue the first laugh.
“I said, ‘Wait a minute, who are you?’ He said, ‘It’s me, your old friend.’ … I couldn’t even hear who he said he was and I said, ‘You know what, I don’t want to engage in this type of discussion outside the structures of the ANC.
“Before we dropped the call he said, ‘Just listen to me, f*** you! F*** you, f*** yourself!”
And there it is. Mngambi’s hysterical facial expressions has us cackling away.
Phosa allegedly contacted Hawks’ “Colonel Mhlanga” to trace the unknown number, which was said to circle back to Yacoob. It was reported that Yacoob has since apologised to Phosa after admitting that the conversation did get heated.
Naturally, social media has taken off, adding a couple more layers of laughter to the situation.

What in the Samuel L. Jackson did I just watch? Someone pinch me, this can’t be real. Our politics is really bottom of the barrel stuff innit? https://t.co/OpXcXzggK3
