‘Stay in your lane’ Mboweni tells Steenhuisen

On Friday, DA Leader, delivered a speech online in which he called on government to end “this lockdown crisis and get as many of us back to work as possible.”

Democratic Alliance leader, John Steenhuisen and Finance Minister Tito Mboweni had a digital sparring following Steenhuisen’s address to the nation.

“I was one of those who stood firmly behind the president and supported his early call for a nationwide Lockdown. The whole country did. At the time it was undoubtedly the right thing to do. Six weeks later, South Africans have more than done their bit.

They have been asked to sacrifice, and they have done so. Many have lost all they had. There is no longer a justification to keep this hard lockdown in place,” Steenhuisen said.

“We need to act now to end this lockdown crisis and get as many of us back to work as safely as possible.”
In response to Steenhuisen’s address, Mboweni said that the leader of the opposition party “must stay in his lane”.

“You have no right to instruct our President to open the economy. That is disrespectful and unwarranted,” Mboweni said.mboweni tweet

Steenhuisen replied: “Big difference is my party takes me seriously, yours treats you like a joke!”john tweet

He then posted Mboweni’s own Twitter profile picture in the form of a meme.
