It’s been a season of criticisms for the political class, especially several serving ministers in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s cabinet.
One such minister is that of arts and culture, Nathi Mthethwa, whose plans to spend R22 million on a monument flag have provoked outrage across South Africa.
One angry South African noted that her compatriots have taken bull shit from government officials for too long and should begin to hold them accountable.
South African disc jockey Mr Smeg, k own for always describing people as beautiful, tweeted a meme of a bearded Pep Guardiola and noted that Mthethwa isn’t beautiful.
Not a collective to be missing during a good fight, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) had issued a statement condemning the planned flag monument, which it described as wasteful, a useless, fruitless and misguided use of taxpayer’s money. It recommended putting the funds to good use.
Another condemned the minister for being, well, “useless.” Of course, the minister isn’t out there replying to his critics. It remains to be seen what impact the massive criticisms will have.
While the arts and culture minister condemned for flag monument, elsewhere, another minister, Naledi Pandor, is being attacked for facilitating multimillion-rand loans for Cuba.
