South Africa’s Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has been publicly reprimanded by President Cyril Ramaphosa after he used social media to comment on the sacking of Zambia’s central bank governor. Over the weekend Mboweni took issue with the President of Zambia, asking why he had fired the country’s reserve bank governor – adding that “hell is on its way” and warned he would mobilise.
