President Cyril Ramaphosa has told Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa to drop the combative R22 million banner undertaking. Ramaphosa said that Mthethwa called him to look for counsel in the midst of the reaction over the drive which numerous South Africans dismissed.

Mthethwa had protected the move yet in a slight about-turn on Thursday, declaring that it was to be explored. The president told delegates at the Black Business Council culmination on Thursday night that he concluded that the drive should be rejected.

The arrangement, which was supported by Cabinet, got under the skin of South Africans, who depicted it as a "vanity project" considering mass destitution and joblessness among different difficulties.

"The public authority will commit errors. The public authority will move gradually. The public authority will perhaps execute wrong approaches, some of the time it won't carry out as it said it will do. Our assignment is to say 'government, go along, how about we continue to move,'" the president said.
