DA: ‘Mboweni needs to get a grip’
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”.
