Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has apologised for comments he made regarding the dismissal for Zambia’s central bank governor by President Edgar Lungu.
Mboweni’s apology comes after a President Ramaphosa reprimanded Mboweni for the comments on social media.
In one tweet, Mboweni promised to mobilise if not provided with reasons why the Central Bank Governor was fired by Lungu.
Ramaphosa assured the people of Zambia that Mboweni’s remarks did not reflect the views of the South African government and its people.
The issue was addressed with Mboweni, Ramaphosa said in a statement.
