Parliament - Finance Minister Tito Mboweni insists Deputy President David Mabuza does take him seriously.
This was after Mabuza on Wednesday slammed Mboweni in Parliament for using Twitter to air his views on government work on state-owned enterprises (SOEs).
On Wednesday Mboweni insisted to MPs, during questions to ministers in the economics cluster, that Mabuza was taking him seriously.
Alf Lees of the DA had said he (Lees) was taking the views of Mboweni seriously, unlike Mabuza.
He was backed by his colleague in the DA Natasha Mazzone, saying Mboweni’s views on Twitter were serious and needed to be treated as such.
