Former finance minister, Tito Titus Mboweni is slowly becoming a Twitter influencer. The 63-year-old is best known for sharing his kitchen and what he cooks in it. Apart from this, Mboweni uses his Twitter account of more than 1.3 million followers to place his stances on certain social issues and raise awareness.
As of recent times, Mboweni ignited the topic of covid-19 and how people are now going to large gatherings without wearing their masks, "I don't know what is wrong with us", he said. He further mentioned that people are dying and the coronavirus is still here.
Seemingly, people were not interested in what he said but urged him to lead by example. A picture of African National Congress (ANC) members in an immensely crowded setting surfaced. They were not wearing any masks nor practising any social distancing. Only a few are spotted with their masks on.
Not to disregard the awareness that the former minister is attempting to raise. But, leaders must lead by example. Mboweni should be able to use the same words to warn ANC members that gather in large groups without masks and without practising social distancing. Most importantly, remind them that corona virus is still here.
