Former higher education deputy minister Mduduzi Manana issued a statement explaining the lockdown lunch photo that has caused a stir online.

Manana claims communications minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams was collecting masks and protective gear from his house before she sat down with his family for lunch.

"On hindsight [sic], it was irresponsible to post a picture without giving clear context and thereby creating the impression that it was a social lunch. For this, we profusely apologise", the statement reads.

Read the full statement below:

In an Instagram photo which has since been deleted, Ndabeni-Abrahams is seen visiting Manana's home and enjoying a meal.

The pair, who are both members of the ANC's national executive committee (NEC), are facing backlash for violating lockdown regulations.

President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier said he had summoned Ndabeni-Abrahams to discuss the lunch pic and the public outcry it has caused.

Duarte calls on ANC members to abide by lockdown regulations

At the same time, ANC deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte has urged members of the governing party’s NEC to lead by example during the lockdown.

She wrote a letter to members of the ANC NEC on Tuesday warning against "photos of opulent living and consumption of non-essential substances".
