Fana Mokoena fires shots at ANC following ‘expensive stage’ at manifesto launch
In a recent related news story, Briefly News reported that Mokoena fired shots at the ruling party's manifesto launch ahead of the elections.
Mokoena took to Twitter where he brought up the financial issues being faced by the ANC, which on 27 September, held its manifesto launch in Pretoria and made numerous promises to citizens; provided they are re-elected.
Although the drama and pazazz were missing, the ANC managed to grapple a large stage and screens across Church Square.
Using the bluebird app, Mokoena said he would rather have paid the salaries of his employees than gone out of his way to erect an 'expensive stage'. He went on to say that he feels that people have different priorities in life.
