Mboweni acknowledges being named Ramaphosa’s potential successor

Published on

Tito Mboweni took to Twitter to circulate an article that suggested that he is President Cyril Ramaphosa’s potential successor, partially due to his efforts amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finance Minister and executive member of the African National Congress (ANC), Tito Mboweni took to Twitter on Saturday, 5 December 2020, to circulate an article that named him as one of the 100 top African leaders. The article labelled Mboweni as amongst those who were in the eye of the storm.

The article was accompanied by an image of Mboweni alongside the ANC leader and the first citizen of the country, President Cyril Ramaphosa. In addition to noting some of Mboweni’s efforts during his tenure as Minister of Finance, the article also positioned him as Ramaphosa’s potential successor. Mboweni shared the article with a non-committal comment, but merely acknowledged the commentary.

The article stated, in part, “He (Mboweni) has been instrumental in drawing up Africa’s debt restructuring negotiations. At 61, he has already been touted as the potential successor to President Ramaphosa.”
