‘Tweeto’ Mboweni rattles the rand
A series of puzzling tweets from finance minister Tito Mboweni late on Thursday night appeared to hasten the rand's slide on Friday
Finance minister Tito Mboweni declared war on someone via Twitter late on Thursday night. He may have joined US President Donald Trump in declaring war on the media, or he may have joined the media in its war on Trump. His cryptic tweets are open to many different interpretations.
"I like fighting, just point out who we [are] fighting against," said one of Mboweni's twitter followers, Tony Yengeni.
