President Ramaphosa disapproves of the social media spat between Premier David Makhura and Minister Tito Mboweni that has been going on over e-tolls. Ramaphosa wants proposals from them by the end of August.
President Ramaphosa is not happy with the way his members have been conducting themselves on social media - Gauteng Premier David Makhura and Finance Minister Tito Mboweni have been at each other's throats on Twitter over e-tolls.
Briefly.co.za reported that things got heated recently between the high-up government officials.
The two had it out over the subject of e-tolls, which Makhura told the public he was committed to removing, in his recent State of the Province Address.
Mboweni disagreed with the scrapping of e-tolls and took to social media to vent. The Minister of Finance told the public that e-tolls would only be affecting middle-class South Africans and those concerned by the impact should be using public transport.
eNCA reports that the president condemned this public fight and said such exchanges on social media are unfortunate and regrettable.
The president urged Mboweni and Makhura to table proposals to the Cabinet on e-tolls by the end of August.
