Tito Mboweni has once again rubbed South Africans up the wrong way. The Finance minister took to his Twitter – an activity he finds himself doing too frequently for some locals – to tweet something that many found completely irrelevant.
Mboweni wrote in the tweet that irked South African citizen, that they may not be happy with the current government or the way it’s running the country but that future generations will be grateful for all the decisions that were made now.
“Leadership will not always be popular! The people will thank you in years to come! Maybe not tomorrow.”
Twitter users and frustrated South Africans spared no time taking to the comment section to give Mboweni a piece of their minds. Many of them called the minister arrogant, comparing him to earlier well-known politicians who were famous for their dictatorship.
Read their comments below.
“The minister’s response is full of arrogance. Those who don’t forget will remind him of his words in years to come.”
“We will never thank you for hiring those implicated in corruption in Treasury. Treasury is supposed to lead by example, in protecting our money. We don’t trust Ranjeni, she must clear her name. She was implicated at #StateCaptureInquiry, why would you decide to hire her?”
Yesterday Briefly.co.za reported that Finance Minister Tito Mboweni recently received a plethora of backlash after he shared a picture on his Twitter of the people he would be working with while drafting the South African budget speech.
Among the faces on the screenshot of the virtual meeting is that of Ranjeni Munusamy, the former Tiso Blackstar journalist who has been accused by a Hawks officer Kobus Roelofse of receiving money during an alleged corruption scandal.
Munusamy has not been cleared of any of the allegations and refused to attend the Zondo Commission to defend herself after the allegation about the money she received was made at the commission in 2019.
