The new-appointed Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is fairly active on social media, particularly on Twitter. But what do the social media posts reveal about the former Reserve Bank Governor?
At the very least, they show a man who is more than just a politician. His Twitter timeline is somehow reminiscent of a personal blog – painting a man in love with art, fine wine & dining, and a passion for his home province, Limpopo.
One of his posts reads: “Look at this beautiful place. Near Leyden Village, Mokopane, Limpopo. And some people want to go to Paris for a holiday when we have this! #TourismLimpopo

Of course you can’t separate the man from politics, he recently tweeted about struggle stalwart, Walter Sisulu.
Mboweni has kept Sisulu’s wise words to this day, tweeting recently about the former ANC secretary general.
Grand oldman Tata Sisulu once said to me when I invited him for lunch at the SA Reserve Bank: “ Embrace All whose efforts advance the cause of the African people. Do not be sectarian my boy”! Those wise words ring in my mind always. pic.twitter.com/nCby8Pep3x
