Nathi Mthethwa, minister of sports, arts, and culture, has been in the centre of a controversy on the internet for several days. This was in accordance with his proposal to build a flag for an estimated R22 million.
Minister of Sports, Arts, and Culture Nathi Mthethwa's proposal to build this flag was rejected by all sectors of this country's population. South Africans demanded that this project be halted, and some even demanded that President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa dismiss the project's architect from his cabinet.
Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa, president of South Africa and chairman of the African National Congress, speaks for the first time about the R22 million flag monument.
The annual Black Business Council summit was addressed by President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa.
