South African Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has been quite active on his personal Twitter page lately.
Once again taking to the app, Minister Tito said that all those who are found guilty of corruption within the party should be kicked to the curb, adding that the party cannot continue the way it has been.
"Those who loot and steal must be summarily booted out of the ANC. Rats and mice must be uprooted and thrown away. We cannot go on like this. No! Better Fewer But Better,” he wrote in the tweet.
Meanwhile, locals soon headed to the comment section to share their stance on the minister's tweet. Read a few of their thoughts below:
"That is why it’s very important for the ANC to remove the very corrupt Ace Magashule. As long as he remains in the ANC, he will protect all the corrupt."
"You guys dumped “better fewer” at Polokwane. Too late now."
"My problem with your statement....the ones you don't like being accused of stealing...the friends are ignored...Zizi and Mashatile received stolen money from Sodi...the president is accused of stealing...he brought in a friend without applying for the job...all this akunakwa"
In other Briefly.co.za political news, the South African Special Investigating Unit (SIU) recently revealed in a report the extent that looting of public funds via defrauding governmental organizations and overpricing certain personal protective equipment has affected the country - and President Cyril Ramaphosa is far from impressed.
Addressing the findings of the SIU in his weekly newsletter, Ramaphosa expressed great disdain for those he says went out of their way to defraud the country in a time when it was facing what may be its biggest health crisis.
Ramaphosa also expressed his shock at the great lengths many people were going to, to be able to rob certain institutions and get money from the country, adding that it was not a result of negligence or lack of oversight by governmental officials, but "wilful intent" to defraud.
