On Twitter, Tito Mboweni, the former South African Minister of Finance and a NEC member of the African National Congress (ANC), announced that he would not be attending any of the ANC's NEC meetings. ANC NEC meeting: Tito Mboweni stated that he will only be attending the virtual meeting, not in person. He adamantly denied that he would be visiting.
Several tweets from a prominent member of the ruling party in South Africa advised people of the dangers of joining huge demonstrations. "What is wrong with us?" asked Tito Mboweni at the outset. Covid-19, he said, is still there, and he was a little shocked to see so many people without masks. Then there is the attendance at huge events such as weddings, memorial services for loved ones who have passed away, and church services.
Tito Mboweni said it this way:
"When it comes to major events, I'm a no show. I'm not going to any of the ANC NEC's face-to-face meetings. That's not where I'm going. I'll be there virtually, thanks. In-Person? Nope"
Again, he uttered:
"There is something wrong with us. We attend huge gatherings, such as weddings and funerals, as well as religious ceremonies. There are no masks allowed! Is there a purpose to what we're doing? Relatives, friends, and acquaintances are all dying.. Covid hasn't gone away!"
