- Nthapeleng believes that government employees are not "golden citizens" and used petrol attendants as a comparison to prove his point
A local man has shown incredible distaste and anger towards government employees who take their lunch breaks all at once. Nthapeleng (@Nthapeleng__) shared an image of two desks at a licensing office shutdown for their lunch break.
Nthapeleng tagged Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula in his tweet and asked Mbalula to "end this lunch nonsense." Nthapeleng suggested that different public workers go on lunch at different times.
He also said that government employees in South Africa are not "golden citizens." His frustration with the system quickly gained traction on Twitter and garnered various responses from Saffa tweeps.
Take a look at his tweet below:
There were tons of responses to Nthapeleng's tweet, Briefly.co.za compiled a few of the top tweets below:
"Isn't everyone ENTITLED to lunch break as per Basic Conditions of Employment and arent they (Gov Employees) pay taxes too?"
"These guys aren't accountable to anyone. They need to implement performance reviews for government employees."
"Even today... I still do not understand why they should all go at the same time. It's crazy."
"Ever qued for an hour and when the line isn't moving, decide to go ask if anything is wrong only to be told that the system is offline? Like, why isn't anyone telling us so we can decide if we are staying or coming back tomorrow???"
In other Twitter-related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Mmusi Maimane throwing shade at Angie Motshekga. It is unsurprising that the former DA leader once again took the opportunity to shade our country's current political leaders - the ANC party.
This time at the centre of Maimane's shade was South Africa's Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga. Maimane shared a picture of Motshekga and alongside it a report about R22 million spent on a school that looked like it was never touched, falling apart on all sides.
The post, which he captioned, "The minister. The work," received thousands of reactions. Many South Africans soon headed to the comment section where they expressed disdain at the country's leaders.
