Zimbabweans React To Mthuli’s “Sophistication & Poise” Criticism Of Biti

Early on Sunday 9 June, Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube tweeted that MDC Vice President Tendai Biti lacked sophistication and poise and that this was evident from his choice of crude language in communicating. Ncube was responding to an apparent insult from Biti who had reportedly referred to him as “a Loud mouth that doesn’t have a connection with its brain”

We post below some reactions from Zimbabweans on Twitter:

Dont let them pull you into their game. You are an economist and he is a lawyer (politician). He thinks wearing a serious face and saying big words in a harsh voice will build him a brand – @stanleymateta

Don’t be destructed from doing your job Prof Mthuli Nuce. Tendai Biti presided over destruction of production with a consumer economy of imported produce. He inherited an economy with US dollar reserves with government paying its workers in US dollars. And got his rented crowd – B Musonza

He might not be at your level ( I mean your level of rtgs and bond) but heavily taxing the already suffering working few demon-strates lack of sophistication and poise normally associated with heartfelt issues of livelihood! You have so much to unlearn! Don’t take too long – @SibsT

You with your sophistication and poise normally associated with a global platform such as Chatham House are bleeding this economy and taking us down the drain. You have so much to learn. However, this may take a while. Lets hope it wont be too late… – @gilkamusasa

If Biti is as good as he claims, he can just present his alternative economic revival policy plan so we can compare against the TSP. I tried to engage him here and he blocked me. – @DonMajukwa

  1. It is all about diplomatic maturity. Certainly the issue is about creation of a healthy economy where all are meaningfully engaged and have a clear view and position of what today, tomorrow and for generations to come the depressed and wretched Zimbabweans would be like
