According to Schreiber, Mthethwa fell asleep again after an hour. “An hour later and he’s fallen asleep again. The perfect metaphor for Ramaphosa’s cabinet.”
Attempts to obtain comment from Mthethwa’s spokesperson Masechaba Khumalo were unsuccessful at the time of publishing this article.
Speaking in parliament, Mthethwa condemned the attack on renowned artist Esther Mahlangu.
He said the attack was “stupid and self-hate” and called on South Africans to show ubuntu.
“Today, let’s call on all South Africans to recall their ubuntu. The attack on Dr Mahlangu was stupid and self-hate. I spoke to her earlier and she is strong. All of us, as MPs, must have her in our thoughts and prayers.”
