Mashaba problematizes Mboweni’s supposed relationship with COSATU and SACP

Published on

Herman Mashaba took to Twitter to problematize the alleged association between Minister Mboweni and COSATU and the SACP, suggesting that it is a hindrance to the upliftment of the informal economy.

Leader of ActionSA, Herman Mashaba took to Twitter on Wednesday, 13 January 2021, to problematize the suggested relationship between Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni and the Confederation of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) and the South African Communist Party (SACP).

His first post on the matter was a video of Mboweni during his tenure as the Minister of Employment and Labour, suggesting that there needs to be a push to formalise the informal economy, which is inclusive of spaza shops. However, it did not invoke much confidence, as Mboweni supposedly backtracked from the proposed national wage freeze recently after opposition from COSATU and the SACP, as was reportedly the case before. The matter is still looming, with Mboweni yet to announce a clear way forward on the matter.

Therefore, in a subsequent Twitter post to substantiate the first, Mashaba stated, “Minister Mboweni, your relationship with COSATU and SACP is toxic for economic prosperity of our country. In fact, even toxic for the vulnerable workers themselves. Their leadership are in this alliance for self-interest, not workers and development of South Africa.”
