JOHANNESBURG - Pictures of Finance Minister Tito Mboweni at an ANC NEC meeting at Luthuli House in Johannesburg have caused a stir on social media.
Mboweni, dressed in a black suit, was criticised for wearing what many people considered as 'dirty shoes.'
Some people said what the minister deliberately wore the shoes as a publicity stunt.
However, many other social media users defended the minister and said the shoes were probably comfortable.
