Bad news for Minister of Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa

By Nhlanhla Maseko 

Mzansi artists have started and are not ending anytime soon fighting for being taken seriously.Things are about to get worse for Minister, Nathi Mthethwa as they have planned something and want him gone.

Nkosinathi Mthethwa is a South African politician and a leader chosen to serve the people of Mzansi. He is known for being a Chairperson of the Youth organisation. He was also involved with the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League whereby he served as a Regional Secretary. He was previously a Minister for Safety and Security and currently serves as a Minister of Arts and Culture. Artists in Mzansi are not happy about him and have since been coming out to voice out their problems concerning him and now it is getting worse as they want him gone. Artists have planned a sit-in tomorrow at the offices whereby they would not leave until Nathi Mthethwa is gone as a Minister of Arts and Culture.

Sibongile Mngoma, one of the sit-in organisers planned for tomorrow said " I'm not sure how long we are going to be there. All i know is we will camp there until Nathi Mthethwa and his officials are taken out or he resigns".

"He has dismally failed our artists and now it is time for him to go. We have tried to engage with him but he simply doesn't care. He totally disregards artists. A perpetual sit-in is our last resort", Mngoma  added. 

Meanwhile, Nathi Mthethwa's spokesperson being Masechaba Khumalo said, "The Minister's office has not received any formal communications pertaining to a planned protest nor have there been any demands formally submitted regarding this specific matter".

Nathi Mthethwa might have failed artists like they claim but there are always how things can be resolved. It is wrong for artists to go take part in a sit-in at the offices for Mthethwa to be removed. There are also procedures that need to be followed for one to be removed from his or her position so they cannot just demand that he be removed. However, no one can blame them as they have been through a lot and continue to suffer while the industry is continued to be affected by Covid-19 especially when this is not the first time whereby they came out to voice out their challenges.
