Last week Mboweni took to Twitter to vent about disagreements with Cabinet colleagues.
Mboweni mentioned he had been a free man earlier than accepting the finance minister job, and now political constraints pressured him to obey choices made by the bulk regardless of his disapproval.
Not so way back, I used to be a free man, no political constraints. Then I agreed, voluntarily to be part of Government. Tjoooo! Free however not free!! You have to obey the bulk/collective choices! Sometimes it looks like swallowing a rock!????
