South Africans are far from impressed by the return of Nomvula Mokonyane to parliament.

Her appointment as Parliament's chair of chairpersons has resulted in people calling out President Cyril Ramaphosa for "rewarding" her.

MPs who make up South Africa's sixth parliament were sworn in on May 22 2019. The ANC claimed 230 seats while main opposition parties the DA and EFF claimed 84 and 44 seats respectively.

Mokonyane has been implicated in allegations of  state capture by Angelo Agrizzi, former COO of African Global Operations, formerly Bosasa.  

 Her new position will involve overseeing National Assembly committees, approving trips and presiding over plenary sessions of the assembly.

The appointment resulted in Mokonyane jumping straight to the Twitter trends list.
