- Tito Mboweni recently took to social media to lament the sad state of a small town that used to be thriving
- The Finance Minister had shared photos of buildings that had clearly fallen into disrepair
- Mzansi was not in the least impressed with the ANC politician's stance on the matter
Finance Minister Tito Mboweni recently took to social media to lament a situation that has earned him some backlash.
The politician had shared photos of a town, commenting on its current state of disrepair:
"This used to be the thriving Shilubana Swiss Mission centre near Tzaneen. There was a hospital, a school, a Cathedral and a beautiful residential space. What a sad story of affairs now."
After the post received unimpressed remarks from citizens who highlighted that the ANC is currently in power, Mboweni was prompted to post another comment on the matter:
"The church centre was not owned by the government! For the record! Read your history."
Take a look at just a few reactions to the post below:
@Unathi_Kwaza: "Unlike ANC RDP houses, it's still standing."
@ChristoConradi1- "Well done dude. With your revered leaders and two nice youngsters of the EFF. Africa is for Africans né Tito?"
@JamesLU11698782- "Please don't start have you seen public hospitals and schools in SA. I forgot you and your family don't use public hospitals and schools."
@whyintheworld8- "I feel your pain bro. It's terrible that we're so betrayed by the so-called government of the people. Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine so much destruction of our beautiful country. The so-called born free's have absolutely no idea how SA used be."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that Finance Minister Tito Mboweni recently took to social media to ask South Africans a crucial question.
SAA has been facing extreme financial difficulties and many have been less than impressed with continued bailouts.
Mboweni had given very little context as to why he was asking, saying simply that:
"Ok. What should we do on SAA?"
South Africans obliged the Minister with their answers but the incident saw Mboweni trending as citizens questioned why the politician had needed their input.
