Shareholder offends Tito

The attitude of a shareholder at the Reserve Bank's annual general meeting was racist, Bank governor Tito Mboweni said yesterday. "I shall not permit you to talk to me like whites used to talk to blacks," Mboweni told shareholder Mario Pretorius. Pretorius twice told Mboweni he wanted to bring a point of order to the meeting, and when he was not acknowledged said "shocking", which prompted the governor's response. - Sapa
