At a Q&A in parliament on Tuesday, Deputy President David “DD” Mabuza made a statement about Finance Minister Tito Mboweni which has caused a stir on Twitter.

Mabuza said: “I don’t really take the minister of finance seriously when he’s making comments”, adding that when the minister tweets, “it’s not a government position”. Mabuza was discussing the privatisation of state-owned enterprises, something the finance minister has tweeted about in his personal capacity.

“I don’t think that’s the way we should approach this debate, whether there are certain entities that must be privatised, certain SOEs, this debate must not be approach this way,” the deputy president said.
