Take a look at Maimane's tweets below:
Below are just a few of the responses Maimane's tweet received:
"Pravin for simple reasons that there's no proper functioning SOEs, Gwede for Eskom and the fact that he's conniving with those who sabotage Eskom so that they can sell us their electricity."
"Cyril Ramaphosa must shuffle himself out. There, I said it."
"You can't forget Bheki Cele. He needs to go with immediate effect."
"All ministers need to rest but I think @MbalulaFikile is energetic so we keep him for now."
@AvhapfaniM1 tweeted in response:
"Dlamini Zuma, Naledi Pandor, Nkoane Mashamaite, Blade Nzimande, Jamnandas, Ndabeni Abraham, Thoko Didiza, Bheki Cele, Aaron Motsoaledi, and not Mbalula. All the others must go."
"Instead of recycling the same garbage over and over again just get rid of them. Bheki Cele should be number one on the list followed by the Twitter Minister of Transport."
