Swallowing a rock

Poor @tito_mboweni, free but not free.

“Not so long ago, I was a free man,” he tweeted on Tuesday. “Then I agreed, voluntarily to join Government. Tjoooo! Free but not free!! You have to obey the majority/collective decisions! Sometimes it feels like swallowing a rock!?”

He’s wanted to close SAA for years, he wanted to lift the alcohol and cigarette bans, but he’s overruled in cabinet. 

On Tuesday he snapped: “Why do people want to be in power, actually? Why? It’s a poorly paying, thankless and abusive job.

“So, if you cannot swallow a rock, stay out of politics!”
