Tito Mboweni’s throwback snap in London angers Mzansi: “Colonial agents”

In a recent article on Mboweni, Briefly News posted that former finance minister Tito Mboweni shared a throwback snap of himself online and South Africans are calling him out.

Mboweni stated that the image was taken in 1985 in London but Saffas seem to have a lot of questions. Many peeps are asking why Mboweni was living a 'life of luxury' in London while others were suffering under the Apartheid regime back in SA.

Tweeps want to know if Mboweni really was a freedom fighter for the country.

What Mboweni may have thought would be an innocent post about his youth was quickly turned into a debate on Twitter.
