Words you will hear today: Government machinery

African National Congress (ANC) presidential candidate Baleka Mbete was put in the hot seat on Monday, during an interview with Karima Brown. Mbete is one of the seven candidates contesting for the top job in the ANC.

Asked how she would build the economy, Mbete said she would so with 'government machinery'.

Twitter users were not impressed.

Jonathan Fairbairn, 702 producer

Government machinery could be Sars.
