DA: ‘Mboweni needs to get a grip’

Daily Dispatch - - News - LINDA ENSOR

Fi­nance min­is­ter Tito Mboweni‚ who has taken to Twit­ter to de­clare war on the me­dia, has been ad­vised by the DA to de­sist from the prac­tice.

In much the same way that US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump ex­presses his views on Twit­ter‚ Mboweni on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day tweeted that “wars start in dif­fer­ent ways. Spears and shields‚ gun pow­der‚ bul­lets and now through me­dia: printed and elec­tronic (eg trade wars by a su­per power Pres­i­dent) and then so­cial me­dia!! Well the SA Ed­i­tors must be Ed­i­tors!! If needs be we will be forced into the fight‚ WAR!” He has promised a live Twit­ter ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion on Mon­day at 11am on SA’s econ­omy.

Com­ment­ing on his Twit­ter out­burst, DA fi­nance spokesper­son David Maynier said “Tito Mboweni needs to get a grip and start act­ing like a fi­nance min­is­ter who is ac­tu­ally ca­pa­ble of deal­ing with the eco­nomic cri­sis in SA”.
