Less than a week after his former lover dropped some files, Tito Mboweni has announced he will be changing the way he engages with social media.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Tito Mboweni announced on Twitter that he's changing his manner of interacting online.
The decision follows in the wake of a scandal concerning a love triangle between the minister, Gwede Mantashe and a 'slay queen'.
"After a long thought process, I have decided not to do any original tweets any more. I might, just might, retweet (not endorsements). I came to the conclusion that Twitter is no longer about its original purpose: ie to create a networked society. It is now an abusive platform."
We decided to hold a virtual memorial for the Finance Minister's original tweets by taking a look at five of his most memorable posts:
1. Mboweni's Twitter friendship with Juju
2. Finance minister defends Afrikaans as a medium of teaching
3. A tribute to "Princess" Sho Madjozi
4. Mboweni reacts to tweeps' jokes about him cooking with tinned fish
5. A lovely photo of Mboweni and his son
We're certainly going to miss the minister's witty posts on Twitter. Mboweni and Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe were caught in a scandal after a slay queen allegedly spilt the tea on a love triangle.
Briefly.co.za reported Lerato Makgatho has described her intimate experience with the married Mantashe, lauding him as a 'tiger in bed', in comparison to Mboweni, who allegedly wanted to switch off the lights and 'cover ourselves' when it came to doing the deed.
