- Mboweni also added that he knew he would get into trouble for saying so
Tito Mboweni recently criticised "Black Twitter", especially the younger people. The former South African Reserve Bank governor said they are illiterate and uninformed.
According to a report by The Citizen, Mboweni threw these insults at the black cultural community during a Power FM show.
Mboweni was addressing accusations that the ANC did not do much for South Africans, defending the ruling party.
As he was arguing for the ANC, he said Black Twitter is uninformed and mostly illiterate.
Mboweni knew he was going to get attention for his comment because he added: "I’m going to get into trouble for that."
Mboweni also said Black Twitter is emotional doesn't really have any content but is "just throwing things at people all the time”.
According to him, the ANC achieved a lot for the country in its time as ruling party.
As of yet, Black Twitter hasn't really responded to Mboweni's comments, but it can be expected that things could get hot.
