- Tito Mboweni recently took to his Twitter to share some political books from his library
- In the post, he explained that he was using the book to draw inspiration for his next political move as Finance Minister
- Unimpressed citizens quickly took to the comment section to let him know his books weren't helping
South African Finance Minister Tito Mboweni was once again dragged by Twitter users, except this time it was not for his questionable cooking techniques. He recently took to his page to share a picture of a few political books.
In his short Twitter post, he explains how he had decided to head upstairs to his personal library and pick out a few political books for himself to re-read in order to draw some inspiration from them.
"At times when things are difficult, I go upstairs to my library and re-read political books. I stay here for hours trying to answer the question: “ What is to be done?” What is expected now from a reasonable human being?" he wrote.
Twitter users and fed up locals wasted no time in taking to the comment section to share their thoughts with Tito over his choice of books as well as his decision to look in dated books for current economic solutions.
Here are some of their comments.
"Your books don’t seem to be the best a library should have."
"And you find these answers in your books? I tried the same thing when raising my infant in the 70's, one size does NOT fit all."
"1) these books won’t help you 2) the solution ain’t political 3) rather think back on all the mistakes the ANC has made and continues to make, say sorry, and FFS don’t repeat them."
Briefly.co.za also reported, Jacob Zuma has exposed an imposter online. Taking to his Twitter account, uBaba shared a statement about @PresJacobGZuma - which he dubbed a fake account. In the statement, the Jacob Zuma Foundation said:
"The Jacob Zuma Foundation has been alerted to a pseudo account which has been posting controversial tweets. The foundation would like to alert the public and denounce anything that has been posted by this fake account '@PresJacobGZuma'."
Many South Africans, however, did not really take the message seriously and some had hilarious reactions, calling on the "Twitter Hawks" to investigate the pseudo account holder. Meanwhile, others advised Zuma to verify his account.
