The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa on Monday said that it was disgraceful, reckless, and selfish of Finance Minister Tito Mboweni to ask the public on Twitter what government should do with South African Airways (SAA). Eyewitness News reports that Mboweni on Sunday night asked his nearly one million followers if the country needed a national airline. Numsa’s spokesperson Phakamile Hlubi-Majola said that Mboweni’s action on Twitter was disrespectful to workers. She’s quoted as saying that “Tito, as the Minister of Finance, has a duty to ensure that the airline is viable and funded. It is disgraceful that he can indulge himself on Twitter whilst workers at SAA have not been paid for eight months and counting, and it is just reckless and selfish”.
