- After a phone call, Tito Mboweni and Julius Malema have put their differences aside and have reconciled
- According to Mboweni, the conversation was a crucial step in the two of them working together to "grow South Africa"
- The phone call came after Julius Malema went for tea with Jacob Zuma at his Nkandla homestead
EFF leader Julius Malema shocked most of South Africa when he asked Jacob Zuma to have tea, but afterwards it seems as though it was a good idea after all. Following Malema's "tea party" with Zuma, Tito Mboweni has decided to bury the hatchet.
The Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni is a favourite on Twitter with all his kitchen escapades and hot takes. This time he took to social media to let South Africans know that he's making peace with Juju.
"Julius Malema called. Good conversation. No issues anymore. Spears down now. Let's grow South Africa together," said Mboweni.
Malema replied to Mboweni's tweet by simply saying "indeed". It really seemed as though the two politicians have put their issues aside for the greater good of the country.
Julius Malema and former president Jacob Zuma met for tea at the Nkandla homestead last week Friday, 5 February 2021.
According to those who were also in attendance, the tea was quite "hot" and delicious.
It is not yet known what was discussed between Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema. However, since Juju decided to make peace with Mboweni, it might have been all about making peace with each other to make the country a better place.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Zuma's refusal to testify at the State Capture Commission could have serious repercussions for South Africa.
The South Africa Council of Churches (SACC) has issued a statement which warns that former president Jacob Zuma's refusal to appear before the Zondo commission could have serious consequences for South Africa.
SACC is concerned that Zuma's refusal to cooperate might result in potential violence as the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture has lodged an urgent application to force Zuma to testify.
SACC’s Khuthalani Khumalo hopes that Zuma will reconsider for the sake of South Africa according to the SABC.
