"Mantash" or "Mantashed" - what this means and how to use it correctly
African National Congress (ANC) Secretary General Gwede Mantashe won’t be let out the wood’s just yet after changing his tune around the cabinet reshuffle last week.
Mantashe has been criticized for the most part, for pronouncing his disapproval with President Jacob Zuma’s new cabinet in an interview with 702’s Xolani Gwala, and then changing his tune in an ANC national working committee briefing.
This is not the first time he had a change of heart.
Social media users have now coined the term 'Mantash' , a verb meaning 'to change your mind abruptly'.
I had to Mantash myself out of a commitment last night. I was tired.— Babalo (@BabaloNdenze) April 8, 2017
702's Eusebius McKaiser has himself taken a liking to the word.
Here is how his followers have used it.
