Earlier Briefly.co.za reported South Africans were shocked over Nene's state capture testimony and the finance minister has since begged for the country's forgiveness.

However, South Africans took to social media to reject his apology, adding Nene was a liar who could not be trusted.

The EFF's deputy head, Floyd Shivambu, took to Twitter to give his two cents about Nene's apology.

"The apology is rejected. We will only accept the apology if he steps down as Minister of Finance because he is a Liar! Liars can’t politically oversee the country’s finances," he wrote on Twitter.

Shivambu was not the only one who was not impressed by Nene's apology. So, Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at other responses Nene's apology statement received.

Author and columnist, Max du Preez, wrote: "How many politicians in SA have done this, ever?"
Social media user @MadamSpeakerZA wrote, "Should we also forgive Duduzane, Jimmy n Gigaba? We don't have energy n capacity for selective forgiveness."
Mmirwa, who goes by the Twitter handle @IK_Mothemane, wrote: "I don't buy it, being under oath coerced you to not lie. Remember the @eNCA interview you did and denied ever meeting them?Don't play games with our emotions. Do the honourable thing nd step aside. Had it not been this commission would you deem it moral to come out and be honest?"
