Take a look at the post below:
South Africans were divided on the minister of finance's tweet - some were proud of Mboweni for getting a proper education while others threw some serious shade.
Khaya Ntuli, @KhayaNtuli3, commented:
"Nice one minister. Sadly most of the political appointees execs can’t even produce that simple graduation pictures just to clear any confusion around. Their arrogance at that time is on another level."
Another tweep, @ucplegacy, added:
"Hawu, Titus... didn't know that one..."
Politician Tony Yengeni threw some major shade at Mboweni with his comment:
"In the 80's we were in prison and we were very young. I'm sure London was nicer."
Taka Tina said:
"Was apartheid real? I mean you afforded to study overseas while other black kids could hardly move an inch from their compounds."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported Mboweni was roasted when an image of the suit worn during the 2020 Budget Speech went viral.
Many South Africans saw the funny side, but some applauded the minister for avoiding a flashy wardrobe.
