Johannesburg - Nehawu president Mzwandile Makwayiba has taken aim at Finance Minister Tito Mboweni and ANC head of economic transformation Enoch Godongwana, accusing them of being enemies of South Africa’s working class.
This comes as the debate over expanding the mandate of the SA Reserve Bank continues to divide the ANC-led alliance.
Mkwayiba was delivering his address at the union’s first day of national policy conference in Boksburg, Ekurhuleni.
He said while people were allowed to warm up to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s leadership, they had no choice but to abide by the ANC’s adopted resolutions, including the nationalisation and expansion of the mandate of the central bank.
“What is wrong when we change the mandate of the SA Reserve Bank to create jobs for South Africans? What is the decision of the ANC in Nasrec about the Reserve Bank? Who has the right not implement the resolution of the conference? Let us leave our friends aside. Let us discuss the principle. What is the decision of the ANC on the Reserve Bank?” Makwayiba asked.
