Cosatu wants Ramaphosa to take action against Mboweni over e-toll tweets
The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) wants President Cyril Ramaphosa to deal with Finance Minister Tito Mboweni for his stance on e-tolls.
The union federation says motorists shouldn't be expected to pay for using the province's highways.
Mboweni engaged on a Twitter war with Gauteng Premier David Makhura at the weekend over the scrapping of the e-tolls.
Clement Manyathela speaks to Cosatu chairperson in Gauteng, Amos Monyela, on the action the federation wants to be taken against Mboweni.
I have referred the e-tolls matter to President@CyrilRamaphosa for final resolution; My engagements him and Minister @MbalulaFikile have been positive. Minister @tito_mboweni can continue to tweet as he cooks; he is a Minister, not the President. #NoTurningBack— David Makhura (@David_Makhura) July 5, 2019
