Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is absolutely unimpressed with Johannesburg's CBD, calling it "filthy and embarrassing."

In contrast, he praises Rwanda's capital Kigali as "clean and beautiful." He took to Twitter earlier today to post a photo of Jozi shacks along with the caption:

Yesterday, December 26, 2018, I decided to drive around the Johannesburg CBD. It was filthy and embarrassing. I came across these shacks in the middle of our city. This morning I arrived to a clean and beautiful city of Kigali, Rwanda. What a contrast!

Mboweni's post sparked a debate among his Twitter followers. Some of them took the chance to throw jibes at ANC for failing society.

Some urged the minister to engage his fellow leaders instead of simply lamenting on Twitter.
