@Olwee commented:

"Penny, this is ridiculous expenditure. The Eiffel Tower was built to celebrate 100 years since the French revolution. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France for the US’ liberty. These were to celebrate progress and the betterment of people's lives. What are we celebrating?"

South Africans want Mthethwa to use the money to help struggling artists. Mzansi artists have been struggling since the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world in 2020.

The minister went on national TV to try and explain to Mzansi why his department want to spend taxpayers' money on the flag. Most people who watched the interview are not buying his story. They took to Twitter to throw shade in his direction.
