Politician Lindiwe Mazibuko, economist Refilwe Moloto, and journalist Rose Rogers have discussed the biggest talking points this week.
The trio of high school best friends debated current affairs topics including the appointment of Tito Mboweni, the death of Pik Botha, the VBS bank 'heist' report and EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu's alleged involvement.
Tito Mboweni! What a relief. I have not felt this confident in a while. He's a seventh finance minister in 5 years. The inability to get stability has been quite tough.— Refilwe Moloto, Founder and Principal Advisor at Ambassador Advisory
Finance Minister is the worst job anyone could be offered. I understand Mcebisi Jonas also turned it down.— Refilwe Moloto, Founder and Principal Advisor at Ambassador Advisory
I think Tito Mboweni's appointment is endemic of a much larger problem in public service.— Lindiwe Mazibuko, Founder of Apolitical Academy
It would appear that the rot is surfacing across the board.— Lindiwe Mazibuko, Founder of Apolitical Academy
I find it fascinating that the EFF will not take any disciplinary action against Floyd Shivambu.— Rose Rogers, Founder at Rushforth Network
The DA, SACP and EFF have been implicated, all of whom have denied it.— Rose Rogers, Founder at Rushforth Network
